Terrible place - but to be fair I think that there is a wide variety of rooms/cabins and some of them we saw (bunch of us there) were good, but ours was a mess - full of bugs, terrible nasty bathroom, no cleaning service, no towel service, loud and drunken neighbors until all hours of the night. Go ahead and try it if you want to take a chance - just make sure to ask for one of the new places.

I spent $200/night to have a bug infested room. The rooms are cheaply constructed and you can hear the people/kids next door and above you all hours of the night. In addition, the water pressure for the shower is a trickle. Our complaints were minimized by the General mgr and we were not given another room or chance to obtain a refund. NEVER STAY HERE!!

After reading all the reviews on this site, was very excited to try this place. Agree with all the comments regarding location (really nice to be right on the lake, less than 10 min. from downtown cooperstown); use of canoe equipment a nice perk; staff very accommodating, efficient & anal, as someone pointed out; but... we stayed in a room in the main Inn building (there are a few rooms upstairs, these were the only ones left at this time of the year) and they were pretty horrific. I was all excited to see clean, clean, clean after the reviews but the room was in terrible shape & hadn't been updated since the 1950s. Old, dingy carpet; dark, tiny bathroom with no storage or comforts; old bedding & mattresses; & pretty creepy all around. I peeked into the cottage & motel rooms & these seem to have been updated & are probably what all the reviews were about. My advice: do NOT stay in the rooms in the main Inn.

A nice spot. Clean. Great view of lake and mountains.
If you want to go to Cooperstown and have more than just a concrete room in a holiday inn, this is perfect. Fresh Air, green grass.. Picnic tables and BBQ pits. Boats and sand beach.

The people that run it there are a little anal and uptight, but I guess thats the reason it stays so nice.Not

The Inn has both cottages and a motel. My stay was in the motel. I arrived in the afternoon and was greeted by a nice person. The property is well kept. I did have lake view. Room was clean. Took a canoe out. Did not swim in the lake. Grill was right near room, bring your own supplies. Village is about 10- 15 minutes south. No cell phone service, but wireless internet worked well. I would make it a point to stay at this hotel if I went back.

We (family of 5) stayed one night. It's nothing fancy, but VERY CLEAN, and the front desk staff was very helpful. About 5 min from Cooperstown. The lake is beautiful, but if you are in the motel, it's very hilly with some steps to get there. We enjoyed our stay, and if you are not looking for a fancy resort I reccomend it.

This is the cleanest place I have ever stayed. It is north of Cooperstown(6 or 7 miles), in the woods, on a lake . Very beautiful views. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Besides the extreme cleanliness, we liked the "little extra's". This is the off season so the rooms are not used as often but we found our room had been opened up and aired out before our arrival, the bathroom had extra over-the-door hanging space, and a retractable line to dry our swimsuits and towels, just to name a few extras. There are full menus in the lobby for local restaurants and the staff offered extra info on each restaurant along with unadvertised coupons for a free glass of wine with our meal. We were staying in a time share in the Pocono Mountains for the week and only came up for the night. We will definately be back again and spend the week next time.
