Otesaga Resort Hotel

They just don't make hotels like the Otesaga Resort Hotel anymore -- so proud, solid in character and architecture, and full of dignity that is yet accessible to all walks of life.

It seems fitting that the Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown, NY, is a member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America. With a look that turns more heads than an L.A. fashion show, the Otesaga Resort Hotel is a stunning piece of Federal hotel architecture -- in operation since 1909 -- with its larger than life pillars, an elegant old-world interior with 135 renovated rooms and suites, and a charming, expansive veranda perfect for viewing beautiful Otsego Lake, having dinner and drinks, and watching and/or dancing to live entertainment. Additionally, a grand main dining room, the more casual Hawkeye Grill, and a wonderful outdoor summertime buffet provide perfect and diverse settings for the wonderful selections of steak, seafood and chicken dishes, along with an extensive wine list and fabulous desserts.

The Otesaga Resort Hotel also offers the challenging and scenic Leatherstocking Golf Course, tennis, a pool, lake swimming, canoeing, a top-notch fitness facility and meeting rooms. It is an all inclusive resort before that term became cool and trendy. There is nothing cool and trendy, however, about the Otesaga. It is pure, old-time Americana, yet with all the modern amenities that anyone could ever ask for.

We've heard wonderful things about the accommodations and know first-hand that the ambiance just from dining there, walking through the stately lobby and hallways, and relaxing on the veranda creates lifetime memories. We look forward to staying a few nights to capture the true essence of an Otesaga Resort Hotel experience, one that so many people throughout the years have enjoyed as an integral part of their visit to Cooperstown.
