Comfortable and functional home with personality

  • 5 of 5

So nice to stay in this home away from home with beautiful views of the NY countryside! We were in town for the busy Cooperstown Dreams Park week and enjoyed heading back to the cottage each night which was an easy 12 minute drive. The home is very functional with a well stocked kitchen, big wonderful tv, and an outdoor fire pit that we were able to use 2 times despite the rainy weather our week. We did not spend much time in the Nut Hut but it would work well for overflow guests. Upstairs the 2 bedrooms were roomy and comfortable and there were plenty of fluffy towels and wash clothes for our family of 4. Also, the internet worked faster then ours at home which was a welcome relief as I had to work one day during the week. Our Verizon cell signal did not cooperate though in Hartwick.

The owners were lovely and checked on us a few times to be sure all was well. This cottage appears to be the best maintained home on the street with some of the neighboring homes in need of some love. We think this was a great find for our Cooperstown stay and would recommend it to friends for the value and comfortable accomodations. We enjoyed our stay and Cooperstown experience!

Great little house just a short drive to town or Dreams Park

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at the Cozy Cottage while our son played at Dreams Park. The house is indeed a cozy cottage. It's beautifully decorated in a country style. The kitchen is stocked with just about any tool you could need. The kids loved hanging out in the Nut Hut. The wifi worked wonderfully. The drive to either Cooperstown Village or Dreams Park is a nice scenic drive of about 12 to 15 minutes. Really just a terrific place to stay. One caveat is that our cell phone providers (Sprint and AT&T) didn't have service at the house at the time of our stay, but the owners allow guests to use the house phone. Overall a great stay.

The house was very cute and clean! It was perfect for our baseball tournament in Cooperstown. The owners were very hospitable and came right over if we needed anything! I would recommend their home to any Cooperstown family travelers.

Cozy, Well Appointed Historic Home Close To Dreams Park

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here while my older son played baseball at Dreams Park. It was everything I could ask for in a home away from home. The kitchen had everything you could want including a kettle, pressure cooker, Ninja blender and coffee maker (not keurig). The Nut Hut out back was a favorite of my ten year old. The owner provided laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent and a selection of small toiletries. The house was built in 1850 and nicely renovated. Please note that the stairs are pretty steep and might be tough for older adults. I highly recommend this property.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were wonderful and the house was very well stocked. We really enjoyed our time while at Cooperstown. We didn't get to enjoy the grill on the deck due to the weather but would have loved to! The view is breathtaking! I would recommend this house to anyone!
