I was traveling last summer and had come across pictures of a nice place called the lake house. The pictures were NOTHING like what the place was like....curtains that did not cover the windows, filthy shower curtain, towels that were older than my grandmother, a door that led to a hallway/entryway that was nearly 3" short, a staff that was...

As an owner, feedback is always important but it needs to be truthful. We don't have carpeting- we have hardwood floors; last year we replaced all of our doors with new six panel pine doors and all meet the floor, curtains do cover the windows unless someone wants to leave them open to enjoy the view of the lake and...

From the minute you check in, the staff services and accommodations exceed your expectations. Absolutely loved this hotel. Whoever is responsible for the decor did an outstanding job. The rooms were immaculate, comfortable and quiet. It was nice having a good breakfast selection in the morning. Eve and Grace, at the front desk were very accommodating. Grace helped us out...

“Great Hotel” This is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Attention to detail is amazing in every aspect- food, service,staff, etc. Breakfast buffet was just right. Our room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. It had classic old furniture with a comfortable bed, etc. but also a modern bathroom, a strong signaled WiFi and a flat screen...

Thanks for your comments- it's true we are close to the Hall of Fame and Cooperstown. We work very hard to make our guests comfortable and happy. Induction Weekend is a busy time in the summer but the area is full of charm anytime of the year. We look forward to reserving a room for you Jeter's year.

Approximately fifty members of the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce attended. Matt Hazzard, newly appointed interim Executive Director of the Cooperstown Chamber was present.

The Lake House is simply divine! The service is excellent! Food and drinks are prepared very well! The very best characteristics are the gorgeous views and historic authenticity!

Weddings at the Lake House are unique and personalized for each couple. Some choose to get married by the lake and enjoy a reception on our stage next to the lake- all the charm of a wedding under a picturesque tent with more advantages- a floor, professional lighting- not strings of lights, ample space with no poles in the way...

This is a fantastic property located on Candarago Lake. It has a great view from the deck. The staff is accommodating and everyone there has a smile and a pleasant hello. Alison on the piano on Friday night was very relaxing- she is very talented. I can’t wait for the fall foliage- it will be spectacular. I can’t say enough...

We had our wedding and reception at the Lake House on August 2014. Our meal was just divine, as the chef went over and beyond to make it special for us.

We didn't stay at the Lake House; we stayed at the Baseball Hotel, part of the same business, located at 10 Gould Avenue in the center of Richfield Springs, which is about a 25-minute drive north of Cooperstown. The pluses: We could get a room there at the last minute in late August, when pretty much every other hotel in...

Dear guest- I am glad that you stayed with us at the Baseball Hotel. It is a great alternative to the high prices of Cooperstown and as you pointed out it is quick ride to the Hall of Fame. As I have mentioned, older buildings have smaller bedrooms than we are used to but all of our bedrooms are clean,...
