About the property

3 bdrm, 3 bath Otsego Lake Cabin

Welcome home! Sweet Otsego Lake area log cabin sleeps 8 and offers views of Otsego Lake and your own lakefront.* A large front patio, and upper deck offer lots of room for BBQ, dining, cozying up with a good book, or just soaking in the view of the lake and surrounding woods and fields. Ideal for two families travelling together,or one large group, this property is two separate apartments, (rented as one), one on each floor. Upstairs provides 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, while the downstairs level has 1 bedrooom and 1 full bath as well as a washer and dryer for both units to share. This is truly a restful place to retire to after a long day filled with local activities. Fish off you dock, toss a ball together on the expansive front lawn, cook up a special meal, sip a glass of wine as the moon rises over the lake and mountains.

Each unit has its own kitchen complete with cooking necessities, and opens to the dining area and living room space. Cable television and WiFi, towels and bed linens are provided.

Parking is conveniently provided right next to your patio for easy loading/unloading. We can accommodate 4 cars and there is over-flow parking just across the driveway.

*You will need to walk down the road you enter from, and cross a two lane road to arrive at your waterfront. I would estimate the walk to take you 3-5 minutes.

About Michele Barry


I'm Michele. I am the property manager/listing agent for this rental space. I have spent much of my life in Cooperstown and love it here! It is always a pleasure for me to share local information with my guests, so please reach out to me with your questions.

Why Michele Barry chose Cooperstown

Cooperstown has an alluring charm I've always found irresistible. With its bustling and historic downtown, the breathtaking presence of Otsego Lake and all it offers, world class museums and opera, and of course, home to America's favorite pastime...what's not to love?

What makes this cabin unique

This charming cabin offers a haven just out of town, but easily accessible to all local attractions and amenities. I love the pretty lake views, the quiet and safety that comes from being off the main road, and the overall peaceful feel of this secluded, rustic place. The interior space is bright, efficient and clean!

Great spot!

  • 4 of 5

Great location near the lake. Very quiet and peaceful. Despite the bugs that always made their way in, and the small bathrooms, it was wonderful.

Owner's Response: Haha!! Welcome to the country!! Yes, we occasionally see bugs here. :)) Very happy to hear that you otherwise enjoyed your visit to Four Directions. It is a peaceful place with nice views and lots of room to roam. We hope you were able to enjoy the waterfront with stand up paddle board and kayak as well!

Great place to stay while visiting for Cooperstown baseball tournament

  • 5 of 5

We shared this house with one other family (we stayed upstairs and they stayed downstairs) even though it's a bit of a drive to the dream park, it was worth it. The drive back and forth is beautiful. Often times we had multiple families from the team hanging out at "our house" because there was plenty of room for visitors and for the boys to hang out. The lake also has a dock dedicated to the house, it was fun to hangout on! The lady who managed the home was very nice and always responded right away. She even came out to fix the tv when one of my kids messed it up. She was very helpful and professional.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our weeklong stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful lake view. spacious, clean and just a 15 minute drive to Cooperstown DreamsPark, so you and your family can relax and recharge between baseball games. Highly recommend staying at 9 Hooligan Hill! Michele is also a delight. What made our stay even better was that our son's team (West Florida Baseball Academy Blue HammerHeads) were the Cooperstown DreamsPark 2017 Week One Tournament Champions!

It is a special place for sure. Thank you for taking time to post a review on our behalf and for future guests!

close enough to everything and still private

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice to stay at. It was so close to everything but private enough and has access to a private dock area on the lake. Michele responded to all requests very quickly and answered questions as they came up. There is also a very nice binder with all sorts of local information and suggestions. It definitely helped us plan where to go.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you liked Four Directions! It is a sweet, private, and pastoral place, and as you mentioned, close to everything. Thank you for making use of the informational binder, I'm glad to know that in this age of technology, some folks are okay with flipping through real pages! Also, I'm so impressed that you fit time in to visit the dock, given your busy weekend...Good for you!! This lake is just too beautiful to miss out on! Thank you for reviewing Four Directions!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin near a large (7+ mile) lake. Beautiful view of the sunrise over the lake from the front porch. Should be a great location for fishing (didn't catch anything, but I'm sure that's my fault). Modern amenities, large rooms, love the wood use throughout.

About 5 miles from Cooperstown, for meals/baseball/etc.

Glad we had free wifi, because we didn't have any AT&T cell service at the house or a lot of the surrounding area. Nice to be somewhat off the grid :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a kind review for Four Directions Chris! I'm glad you had the opportunity to do a bit of fishing...sorry for the lack of success. It's always such a pleasure to hear from our guests what they enjoy and appreciate about not only their accommodations, but also what they love about the area. Thank you for sharing!

A beautiful clean property! With all the convenience of home.

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay! The lake front is incredible, we went kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, and swimming. Enjoyed drinking coffee each morning on the patio while taking in the breath taking views, and listening to the sounds of nature.

Thank you Michelle for providing such a wonderful experience!

Thank you for sharing your experience at "Four Directions" with future potential visitors. Come again!!
