My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful lodge in Oct. 2010. The lodge is set high on a hill with wonderful views. It was so peaceful - it was so quiet as if we were in the middle of no where but were only minutes from all the Cooperstown attractions we wanted to visit. Cooperstown is so quaint; it is like stepping back into the1800's. Steve, the lodge's proprietor, has a rye sense of humor and is the perfect host. He and his staff were very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. Fall is the perfect time to visit as far as we are concerned but families come in the summer and enjoy the lodge's pool and nearby baseball fields. The fall colors are gorgeous. We liked that we had a refrigerator, two burner stove and microwave so we made sandwiches and took them with us as we visited the attractions plus we made dinner in our room at night. Many of the rooms have a great balcony with chairs so you can sit and contemplate the leaves changing colors and dropping off. We hope to go back again.
