Vintage Cottage on Otsego Lake Golf Course Near Glimmerglass
At the head of Otsego Lake, a short drive away from the Dreams Park and all the museums and attractions of Cooperstown, this classic and exclusive location is now available at a very affordable price.
Wifi, wide-screen Hi-def TV with premium cable, a great porch with barbecue: enjoy this spacious home on a large private property with family or friends. It's stocked with books, games and more.
A master suite with queen bed, and a two-twin bedroom, each with an en-suite bathroom, and a double and a single bedroom with shared en-suite bathroom. Full eat-in-kitchen and enormous loft-like great room with dining area, fireplace, piano and several seating areas.
Double sliding doors open onto a view of Mount Wellington and the ninth green while a stone-paved porch wraps around two sides of the house which backs directly onto woods.
High ceilings and fans keep the house cool all summer, enjoying breezes coming up from the lake, and baseboard heat and radiators warm the house on cooler days. Air conditioning window units are in the bedrooms.
Uniquely located on the only private property within the grounds of the Otsego Golf Club. There is ample outdoor room for games, parking or heading out for a hike or nature walk. The north end of the lake is a natural, protected wetlands with a wide variety of birds and other wildlife. Or take advantage of the special discount offers for golfing packages for you and your group and have lunch on the club porch with views of Otsego Lake.
The property has been in my family for several generations and has been used as a summer holiday retreat as well as a year-round home. Quiet days enjoying nature can be interspersed with world-class entertainment at the opera and visits to the fascinating museums of Cooperstown. And a stroll downhill brings you to the charms of the golf course, one of the 10 oldest in the US.
Available May 30 through the end of September. Please check our calendar for available dates.

About the Host, Sophie
I've been living in the Spoleto area for more than 25 years and have been helping friends who have holiday homes in the area find great guests who will enjoy staying here for the past five years. I make sure the houses are ready for your arrival and are always even nicer than you'd expected. I want to ensure you have a great holiday and come to love and hopefully return to Umbria whenever you can. I also have a holiday cottage in upstate New York on a golf course on Otsego Lake, close to Cooperstown, on a property I share with my brother.
