This place is absolutely perfect! It is close enough to Cooperstown and just far enough away to have plenty of space to enjoy a vacation however you want. The kitchen in the great room is fantastic and the indoor grill was a great convenience. The lake house was very clean and beautiful. The beds were comfy, and the lake house...

What a beautiful Lodge. It took us less than 30 minutes to get to Dreams Park. We all enjoyed the beautiful deck and the view was stunning. You can watch the sunrise as you wake up in the master bedroom. Don't hesitate booking this Lodge. If I have the chance, we will come again next year! We enjoyed Mel's on...

We needed a hotel for a single night for a break in a journey from Canada to the Boston area. While not the newest of hotels, this was comfortable and clean, and was just what we needed. Staff was so helpful about places to eat in the area. We had a long day dropping our child off at school and...

I was unpleasantly surprised at the disorganization and rudeness the proprietor and run-down and dirty appearance of the hotel. My son found an empty liquor bottle under his bed and there were roaches in the lounge and kitchen area on the third floor. We stayed there, grudgingly, for one night, but would definitely not recommend the hotel to anyone. The...

Unfortunately for us our phone service did not work in this area so I could not read the reviews of the Lake House. We had driven for 7 hours up from southern NJ and we were just anxious to find a place to stay. I should have trusted my instincts when I walked in...first there was no one to be...

The hotel was awesome. They have a section of the lake that you can swim in and everything. Crystal clear water. "The staff was friendly and helpful".

Charming Lodge in a beautiful location on Lake Candarago, a few minutes' drive from Glimmerglass Opera. Clean, comfortable room. Lakeside setting for eating complimentary continental breakfast and for pedal boating. Just lovely. It was beautiful. Wish we had planned to stay longer.

We rented a couple of rooms at this hotel so we could enjoy a favorite band of ours that was playing at the Lake House. We had visited the restaurant previously and were excited to see that they also rented rooms.
