Our family gathering was a great success. With a private dining room and great support from event services, we had a fantastic evening with everything done to our specifications.
The dancing after dinner in the Templeton lounge was a good way to shake down dinner and the children had a ball on the dance floor.
You need to go there yourself to experience the beauty, the quality and the uniquness of this place. In the winter the prices are very good and dinners around the year in the Hawkey Grill are first class. Chef Michael has the wide knowledge about fine cuisine and the food is of highest quality, whatever you choose.
P.S. Do request specific bedding or you might be stuck in a standard room with two twin beds.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Otesaga on two separate occasions this summer while our son was playing in the week-long Cooperstown Dreams Park tournaments. The decor is old-world and lovely, and the service was friendly and gracious. I still dream about sitting out on the porch having breakfast or sipping drinks in the wooden rocking chairs overlooking the lake. For the two weeks we spent there, it really became our home away from home. Definitely worth the price compared to other local hotels.

Our hotel room was beautiful with a fantastic view of Otsego lake... we had such a great time we decided to stay an extra night. The hotel is also in a lovely town with the added benefit of being home to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Wonderful hotel with great personnel who cater to you every need. The night manager allowed us to place our grandchildrens Christmas gift by the fire place on 12/24 and watched them so our grandchildren could be surprised that Santa found them and brought gyre presents all the way from California ! Thank you for making our trip a memorable one!

I didn't see a separate listing for the Otesage Resort Hotel dining room so I'm putting my review here. While staying at the Cooper Inn, my husband and I enjoyed a marvelous dinner at the Otesaga Resort Hotel dining room. As typical with prix fixe restaurants, the choices were limited BUT the quality was excellent. Even vegetarian husband had a marvelous meal. Service was stellar with the wait staff able to balance cordial attention with 'staying out of the way' while we dined -- very nicely done. The wine selection was good and out of the ordinary. Again, wait staff knew the wine as well as the food. Okay, I'm a push-over when the table is 'crumbed' before dessert but i do like this type of attention to detail in a fine restaurant. We will definitely dine here again.

we went to enjoy a meal at the resort. The main dining area is very old and well decorated. This hotel dates back to 1909. The hospitality and service we received was just fantastic. They really put out a fabulous meal with everything you could possibly want. the wait staff waited on our every need and were prompt and courteous. The food is all top shelf they don't hold back on anything. Stop in and enjoy a fabulous meal in the main dining room at the Otesaga Resort.

This beautiful period hotel sits right on the lake, wonderful period ambience, fantastic experience! We went to a wedding here last weekend and never felt anything except relaxed! I have stayed here once before and will definitely again. Loved the little pub downstairs with music until the wee hours. Oh! The food was great also, especially the apps.
