Imagine a place in which you feel instantly at ease, yet a space with so many unique features that each glance reveals another artistic discovery.
This is Oneida Lodge North (OLN) at ArrowHead Pointe on Otsego Lake.
With rugged and distinctive architectural lines and a straightforward interior design, OLN offers a level of luxury and comfort not found elsewhere in the area. The focal point of this 3,200 square foot lodge is a masterfully designed, 3-story log staircase that winds around an ancient white pine tree. "Rooted" in the natural slate flooring of the Lake Level wet bar area, this hand-polished behemoth rises through the Main and Upper Levels and tops out 42-feet above; up against a bank of 4 electronically controlled sky lights. All the while, treads of half-logs balanced on a single spiral beam rotate up the 48" diameter trunk, protected by railings constructed from cedar and black birch twigs. The equally impressive floor to ceiling mirror reflects the art-turned-staircase, as well as the abundant natural light from the skylights above.
Stepping back from the stair railing, one can appreciate the wide-open floor plan of the Main Level and take in the sweeping view of Otsego Lake through multiple sets of French Doors. A secondary focal point is the chef's kitchen, which was custom designed and built by a local Amish cabinetmaker from character cherry wood with maple details. Copper sinks and faucets, muted earth-tone granite counters, along with SubZero, Wolf and Azko appliances and an array of unusual touches add to the ambiance of the cathedral ceilinged space.
The Great Room houses a flat screen TV in front of a very comfortable and large seating arrangement. Nestled in the corner and flanked by 15-foot long walls of glass is the solid slab, mahogany dining table. Hanging above from a beam is a handcrafted stained-glass light of just-the-right-colors providing a soft glow against the naturally colored Douglas fir logs. Another leather sofa and pair of red leather chairs are placed about the woodburning fireplace and provide an ideal space to read or simply catch a few winks.
The entire Upper Level has vaulted, wainscoted ceilings and showcases the hand peeled, post and beam frame. Here are two wonderful queen bedrooms, both with walk-in closets and lake view balconies from which the ducks and geese can be heard making their riot, along with the soothing sounds of waves lapping at the beach. Both bedrooms have flat screen TV's and pairs of electronic skylights with screens and shades.
Down the hall and past the tree, step into the spa-like bathroom and indulge yourself in the deep, jetted soaking tub. The large shower area features 2 showerheads and a series of adjustable body spays; very relaxing!
On the Lake Level, the lucky guests staying here will discover two beautifully furnished queen bedroom suites; one features a marble walled bathroom and the other a granite bathroom, both with AHP Signature pedestal sinks and showers with polished pebble floors. And both of these bedrooms have flat screens tv's as well.
Next to the trunk of the huge tree is a wet bar and wine fridge. And nearby, the Family Room has lots of seating in front of yet another flat screen TV. Outside the French doors is a 30-foot long bluestone patio with a walkway that lead visitors down to the lake and The Boathouse.
The Boathouse is a stunning 2-story log structure; it hugs the lake and provides exceptional spaces for relaxation, reading, gazing at the lake and for gathering with friends as the lake reflects the colors of the sky. Authentic folk art and antique and hand crafted furniture graces the Main Floor while an 80-year old birch bark canoe hangs suspended under a 12-foot long clear span skylight. In the adjacent side rooms, the wooden frame of a vintage kayak and an old canoe are tucked into the massive log rafters of wide-open, vaulted ceilings. 3 fireplaces and a pair of bathrooms are conveniently provided. Numerous French sliders open onto a wrap-around covered deck over-hanging the waters of Otsego; so clear you can watch the trout swim by!
Down the log spiral stairs and around the "coat-tree" (with it's authentic, colorful Navajo style coats hanging from the branches) to the Lake Level. A specially designed walk-behind birch bark bar is ideal for entertaining friends; twig bar stools and foosball table are just inside a wall of glass looking right out at the lake. Step through the French doors to the lakefront walkway, which connects the beach area to the boat dock.
Adjacent to The Boathouse is the heated pool; raised up from the lake, its bluestone patio is a perfect place to bask in the sunshine and to watch boaters pass by. The landscape is mature, lush and dense with native trees, plantings and massive boulder retaining walls. Sitting on its own promontory a few feet from the edge of the lake is the gazebo. Constructed in British Columbia of massive cedar flared posts, trimmed out with birch details and lighted with a hand-painted chandelier, there is no better vantage point for lake gazing.
ArrowHead Pointe is a vacation retreat for discriminating families looking for the perfect home and location, on the area's most sought after lake, Otsego Lake. Bring your boat or rent one and keep it at our dock; 2 restaurants can be reached by boat and our lake is exceptionally clean and very much underutilized.
Fishing, swimming, sailing, kayaking and canoeing, tubing and skiing; all right from our beachfront.

We had a great time at the well maintained Oneida Lodge and will definitely rent it or another one of your properties when we return to Cooperstown. The boathouse, kayaks, canoes, and the pool are great for the kids! It is close to all attractions in Cooperstown and has a great view of the lake. The property is best suited to sleep 8 people but can accommodate 10 people using a pull-out couch. The owner is great to deal with and the people he has maintaining the property are excellent.
We didn't want to leave!! From the breathtaking views, to the architecture details, this house has more details at every corner. Only an 18 minute drive to Cooperstown Dream Park too! We used the pool, lake, kayaks, canoes, the boathouse and even the gazebo! We will be contacting the owner in the future for our next Cooperstown stay. Thank you Bill!!!!
Amazing house with an even more amazing view of the lake. The attention to detail on the design, construction, layout and furnishing is nothing less than spot on! Perfect house and location for anyone headed to Cooperstown for a baseball tournament, HOF weekend or just a family vacation. The owner is extremely helpful, responsive and a pleasure to do business with...Thanks
I am speechless! Words will not be able to describe the beauty of this property... If you are looking for relaxation, lakeview, deck and private access to the lake, this is the place to be! It even has an outdoor heated pool... Talk about clean, decor and a picturesque view, this is it. The house has everything! Clothes Washer/Dryer, Dish washer, pots, pans, the works! Very high quality electronics! You will NEVER have to leave this property! I was extremly relax that my friends had to push me off the sofa/couch, to go outside and walk around... Hahaha.... Yes, if i had my way, i would have rented the place to myself :) Yes, the house/property is indeed a home-away from home!
Despite the temperature barely going over 40° all weekend, we had an incredible time at this lodge. After staying at several places on VRBO (some good, some bad), I had to appreciate all the little things included in this house. From providing spices for cooking and a Keurig, to having a neat array of wood in the fireplace ready to go for us (with a starter log). The lodge is simply a perennial pleasure - had it been a bit warmer we'd have swam (though pool was closed, obviously) or even taken out the provided kayaks. The architecture of the lodge itself is beautiful and unique. From Oneida lodge, it was only a small stroll down to the pier, where there is a majestic gazebo, with benches to look out onto the lake and more. Inside the adjacent boat house is air hockey, foosball, and a few areas to simply lounge. Overall, Arrowhead Pointe is lush with details and quite literally a retreat from the hysteria of every day life. All of us being from NYC & Long Island loved spending the weekend in peaceful splendor w/ amenities. Liz and Bill Miller are truly class acts with exquisite taste and style. I'm really impressed by the welcoming, serene space they've created on a hill by the lake. Thanks again for everything - cheers!
It was such a great experience to stay at Liz and Bill Miller's property. From the moment of contacting them in regards to our stay they were extremely accommodating and had fast responses. While staying there we used an at home masseuse service which was also a great experience. The property was absolutely beautiful from the inside and outside. We look forward to making this place a home away from home! Thank you again Bill and Liz for everything!
I stayed in this house with my family for my Cooperstown wedding weekend. It was unbelievable, and they all loved it so so much. It is beyond beautiful, and so comfortable. The morning of my wedding I even got to have a short Jacuzzi soak to relax and start my day:) Aside from how blown away we all were by the house, and property (my young niece and nephew enjoyed the pool), an added bonus was that the "getting ready" wedding day photos were stunning - because of the house! This house is huge and had so much space for all of us, even with the hectic elements of the big day. It is a few months later, and I miss this house. A final thought to add is that my whole family is either from Cooperstown or intimately familiar with it, and there is nothing like this house and Bill Miller's other properties (we also rented The Treehouse) anywhere. These are a welcome and amazing addition to the area.
We were all so excited to spend the weekend in Cooperstown. We walked in to the most beautiful place. Not a detail missed. It was beyond spotless and the smell of all the wood was just amazing. We had big plans to tour the town. The house was so homey that we didn't want to leave. From the fire places, views, decks, boat house, gorgeous décor and a fully stocked kitchen, we just can not say enough about how wonderful our stay was. Hoping to make this an annual trip!
What a wonderful getaway for our whole family! Your lodge was the perfect setting for a perfect holiday weekend and things simply could not have been better. All of the members of our three generation family (ages 3 months to 60 years) happily join in the online praise of your property as well as how easy it was to work with you. We couldn't believe that you even ordered up three days of fabulous fall weather for us as well. Between the heated pool, spectacular boathouse, landscaped grounds, canoe/kayaks, and outstanding accomodations, nothing was lacking. Many many thanks for your help in making my 60th birthday weekend one to remember. Again Bill, things couldn't have been better and we will defnitiely be back.
My extended family and I stayed at this house at the end of September for my father-in-law's birthday celebration. He was amazed when he walked in and saw a tree in the middle of the house! This beautiful home has great views, plenty of space, and lots to do at the home, and in Cooperstown a short drive down the road. We enjoyed the the kayaks and canoe at the house, the Baseball Hall of Fame, Leatherstocking golf course, Farmer's Museum, Main Street in Cooperstown, and just hanging out at the house. There was so much to do, we didn't get to all of it in 3 nights. We will be back for sure!
We stayed at the Tree House during our trip to Cooperstown for my son's baseball tournament at Dreams Park. The spacious, welcoming home was perfect for our group of parents and younger siblings. We had everything we needed to enjoy great meals, swims in the lake, and moments for relaxation between baseball games. We also leased the Bird's Nest which was a perfect extension. The home lived up to all the hype you are reading and MORE! What a gem! We plan to return in a few years when my younger son's team comes to the tournament.
The house is amazing! We stayed here while our sons played at Cooperstown Dreams Park and it was the best decision we could have ever made. We shared the home with 2 other families and it was so comfortable with 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms - everyone had their privacy. The kitchen and living areas are tremendous as well as the gorgeous deck overlooking the lake, pool and boathouse. We swam in the pool, jumped in the lake, kayaked, and fished. It was absolutely one of the most memorable trips our families have had.
We stayed at the Onieda Lodge North, and had an amazing week. The home was very comfortable and well-kept, and the log-cabin architecture is really special. The kids spent many hours swimming in the lake and pool, and then we could unwind for a relaxing family dinner overlooking the lake and even top it off by roasting marshmallows over the camp fire. Great house, great spot on the lake - I highly recccomend it.
We stayed at the Oneida North Lodge in July for a week while our son played baseball at the Dreams Park. This was a terrific investment if you plan to make the tournament your family summer vacation. The home is incredible and sits on a beautiful and very large lake. While it may not be the closest house to the Dreams Park (about a 20 minute commute) it is certainly has the most to offer. You can see the pictures on the Cooperstown Luxury website. Yes, the house looks exactly like that. Incredible. We had other children with us so the pool was one of the greatest amenities. The house is 3 levels so if you share it with another family you can enjoy some privacy as well. We did not get to use the boathouse that much because of all of the baseball and other wonderful things to do in Cooperstown but it is certainly a terrific bonus. I would recommend staying here if you would like to be the envy of the entire team. You will not regret it.
What a beautiful place to spend the week! We had a wonderful experience at Cooperstown DreamsPark, much of which is credited to our lovely accommodations. After an enjoyable, but often long, day at the ballpark, we relished unwinding on the back porch overlooking the beautiful lake. The kids were able to swim and fish while the parents and grandparents visited and everyone was happy! Liz and Bill were very kind to bring a King size bed into the master bedroom for the grandparents who were thrilled! It took us about 25 minutes to get to the park and about 15 minutes to get to the nearest grocery store. The Blue Mingo (hope I'm spelling that correctly)restaurant right on the lake is less than 2 miles away. It had a wonderful menu and a beautiful setting with everything from fabulous gourmet burgers to a delicious beet salad and truly nice crab cakes (not bready…hallelujah!). All in all, we had a wonderful week which exceeded my Cooperstown expectations. Thank you Bill and Liz!
The home was absolutely beautiful - well appointed on the inside and stunning from the outside. The views were fantastic and the amenities were great. If you love the outdoors, this is a great place that can accommodate multiple families and guests comfortably. There was a ton to do with the lake and the pool and common pool house. Just a short drive into town and nearby golf.
Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay at your lake home, it was beautiful and we all had such a great time. Stagecoach was a big hit, we went every day. We also tried Mel’s at 22 which was fantastic food and a really great atmosphere and Toscana, a little further up the main street, very small but exceptional food and service with a smile. All in all we really enjoyed seeing some of the state we hadn’t done before.
We stayed at Oneida North for an early Spring weekend. There was so much to do and see and the view of the half frozen lake was spectacular! The log house is spacious and very well equipped. The restaurants in Cooperstown are excellent and we highly recommend visiting the Ommegang brewery and of course the Baseball Hall of Fame. We think that a Summertime visit is next.
We came for a weekend to celebrate my father in law's birthday. It was perfect-- luxurious, breathtakingly beautiful, spacious and very comfortble for our group, which ranged from 1 1/2 to 70 years old. We loved the bright open rooms, the fireplaces, the view from the deck, the gourmet kitchen and all the unique wood details. It was beautiful and cozy, surrounded by snow and the frozen lake. My kids loved discovering the pool house-- complete with fusball and air hockey, plus a couple more sitting rooms and fireplaces. I can't recommend this house more highly-- it's one of a kind, and we will definitely be back!
This home is everything you could expect and more. The pictures on the website are beautiful but when you open the doors to this magnificent home, you would not believe your eyes! This is not just a log home ,this is a log home mansion! Everything we needed was there to enjoy on a snowy weekend next to the fireplace, cooking our meals and sitting looking at the spectacular view. We had so much to do in town even with it being winter! The owner suggested the sports center and my girls had a blast. We could've used a few more days of this piece of heaven. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to use their wonderful paradise! Everything was as they said it would be and more! I will refer you to many and my family will be back to enjoy!
Another fabulous stay. This makes 5 times for my wife and I.... and every time we return it is like coming home. As we sat by the warm fire and radiant heat, we hardly noticed the snow and -27 wind chills outside. Arrowhead Pointe always has a way making us forget the stresses of life and remember what truly matters. Our visits are always special. This place is special. A reminder to take time for each other. To laugh, to love and to be grateful for our lives. Just something Oneida and Cayuga helps us rediscover each year. Our wish is that everyone can stay and experience these magnificent lodges like we do...with an open heart, a child like curiosity and a deep respect for the land that was immortalized to create them. Our sincere gratitude to Bill and his wife for their generosity and for sharing this treasure again with us. See you next year....we can't wait.
My family and I had the best Christmas at this wonderful mini resort (close to skiing). The log home is over the top spectacular with all top of the line amenities. To my surprise, we were told that we also had the use of the common house built directly on the lake. This again, Over the top... With it's own game room and spectacular views. Words cannot express how beautiful this place really is. I myself, as a builder of high end homes really appreciated the craftsmanship and could not stop looking around gathering ideas for my next home. I would, and have recommended it already to family and friends. Bill (owner) is extremely accommodating and he actually called me a few times to see if he could do anything else for us. (like he didn't do enough) The house was stocked with everything you can think of including fire wood stacked right outside your door step.
If you are looking for the most luxurious accommodations in Cooperstown you've come to the right place! We rented Oneida along with the Treehouse, Bird's Nest and Cayuga to accommodate our families and the wedding party for our daughter's wedding in Cooperstown. This home is absolutely beautiful with all the comforts of home and then some! Bill (the owner) is great to work with and was always available to provide any assistance we needed. We can't say enough how happy we were to find such beautiful homes for our daughter's special day. We can't wait to return!
8 of us recently spent a weekend here and the accommodations were excellent. From the moment we pulled in all of us fell in love with the place. The only downside was we did not spend enough time enjoying the property. It was a weekend to tour some wineries and breweries- which was fun in itself. I would highly recommend this property to all who are interested in spending some time in a beautiful part of the state
The log house is magnificent, rooms spacious, kitchen efficient, open floor plan perfect. We were there in October and the foliage views were fantastic. Outdoor space is great - little porches off the house perfect for reading, grassy spaces, easy walk down to the lake and pool area. Plenty for children or grandchildren to do at the Boathouse. I would come again for sure!
What a great place to spend quality time with your family and get away from the hustle! Bill and Liz were so attentive to every detail even sending us local activities that we're going on in the area so that we get the best out of our weekend. We will def be returning to this amazing place! Thanks bill and Liz !
We were in town for a baseball tournament at Cooperstown Dreams Park and were fortunate to stay in this amazing property! From the minute we inquired about the property to the day of departure Bill and his staff were fantastic! The photos of the home do not do it justice, what an amazing experience to stay in such a wonderful home. We definitely plan to make another trip in the future and would recommend this home to anyone! This is a "DO NOT MISS" if you are planning to stay in Cooperstown!
Thank YOU so much for your hospitality! We loved every moment at the house and miss it already. We only wish that we had more time to spend there. Unfortunately, baseball got in the way. :) We stayed at the "resort" while our sons were playing at the Cooperstown Dreams Park baseball complex. The home was exactly as described in the listing…"Uber-luxe" and it far exceeded any expectations that we had upon arrival. Every detail on the home's interior was impeccable. The serenity of the lakefront home was exactly what we were looking for as a retreat from the busy baseball fields. The boathouse and available kayaks and canoe allowed our other children (and their parents…) the opportunity to enjoy a vacation away from the park. We will definitely spread the word to friends about what a luxurious retreat it is and hope to return soon.
Bill, we had a great time and loved your home. It was well stocked, organized and clean. Everything was as pictured on the site. The drive back and forth to the park took about 25 mins each way but it was so nice to come back and play at the lake in between games. We will be back in two years for our middle son so we will be in touch when we know our dates. Thanks again for all your help, you were great to work with.”
We had an awesome time at the Onieda Lodge. When we arrived everything was as pictured and promised. We traveled to the area for a baseball tournament at Dream's Park. It was close enough to the park so we could come back and enjoy the lake in between games. My husband and I traveled with both sets of our parents and two of our children and there was plenty of room in the house. Bill was very helpful when we had any questions. We plan to return in a few years when our middle son has his turn at Dream's Park.
My golf buddies and myself (8 in all) are always looking for great accommodations, and we certainly found them in The Oneida Lodge. The interiors are exceptional in their details. The open floor plan allows for great views of Lake Otsego and spaces that permit easy entertaining for a large group. Leatherstocking Golf Course was a picturesque 15 minute ride from our place and the course was outstanding. It was a little cool for the pool, but we took advantage of the on site kayaks. It's when you are on the lake that you truly appreciate what thought went into the planning of this complex. Owner Bill could not have been nicer to deal with. To quote MacArthur, "I shall return", but I'm coming back with the family next time.
We needed a place to stay that would be large enough for 10 guys. This was definitely the place! The property was absolutely breathtaking . We had so many things to do at the lodge. From kayaking, fishing, playing cards, swimming, and just sitting a relaxing. We definitely would like to rent this property again and would recommend anyone else to stay here as well. You won't regret it at all! The owner bill was very kind and prompt with giving all information that was needed for our stay. Thanks again Bill!
Thank you Bill and Liz for sharing your home with us. We had a very nice weekend stay at your cabin with our good friends. Bill you were very helpful in every way with boat rentals to great places to go and where to eat. We enjoyed having the pool right there by the lake and kayaking was very popular with our group. The men really enjoyed golfing at Leatherstocking Gof Course. Our two families would love to visit your place in the near future.
What an incredible place! My wife, four year old daughter and I spent a few days at Oneida Lodge and loved every minute of it. The incredible craftsmanship and attention to detail in every fixture, room and aspect of the home complements its incredible location on the lake. Coffee on the upper deck as the sun rises over the lake is the ultimate way of relaxing and appreciating the beautiful surroundings. The heated pool and boat house added to the experience. We swam every afternoon of our visit in September after first spending the mornings exploring the wonderful town of Cooperstown and the surrounding areas. Lots to do. We found a few neat, low-key restaurants where the food was excellent and the people were so friendly. A short charter boat trip was a perfect way of experiencing the beauty of the lake. The owners are very friendly and accessible. If you are thinking of a place to spend a few days or a week connecting with family, friends or just relaxing away from the stress of your normal life; this is the place to be!
My stay was Fabulous!!!! I went for my 40th birthday with 10 ladies....we LOVED the home from the time we pulled up. When you open the doors...your in total WOW of the home, decor, views and architect. There's no other words then AMAZING!!! Everything is WOOD!!! From the kitchen, to the two sided living room, the dining room wood table overlooking the lake, the stunning tree staircase, the boathouse, the bathrooms...I can just go on and on. You have to see it to beleive it!!! I also recommend Renitta...the massage therapist. She's incredible!!!!! I've had many massages at 5 star hotels/resorts in the tri state area... and Renitta is the BEST!!!! Sorry Bogata...Crystal Springs Resort...Waters Edge.... Mohegan Sun...Nemacolin. There's only three minor issue we had...the chairs at the island in the kitchen are to low...there for the dining room table. I recommend they upgrade to high stools. The other issue was the queen beds are not suitable for this type of home...its such a GRAND rental property that they should at least upgrade to king beds in the two upstairs master bedrooms. Lastly...is not having a dvd player in the great room (upstairs living room). There's one in the downstairs family room but all the entertaining is primarly done upstairs. Besides that.....this home is a 5 star resort of your own. We loved it!!!!! The owner Bill is a GEM....kind, accomodating, genorous, etc. We are already planning a trip back this winter. I've told all my family and friends...if you want to experience a home on the lake...there's no other like Arrowhead Pointe. Thank you Bill...you made my birthday special!!!
If you are looking for the best place to stay in the Cooperstown area, this is it! The first thing you notice when you arrive is how beautifully landscaped the property is. Once inside, everyone in my party commented on the beauty of the wood and the warmth of the surroundings. The home is nicely decorated and the kitchen has top of the line appliances. It sits right on the lake and the views from both inside and from the outside decks were amazing. The owner/builder obviously has an eye for detail because everywhere you look there are handmade pieces, like the bathroom pedestal sinks and various tables. We visited in October and the pool was heated and it was warm enough to swim! If you stay at this property, you can use the Boathouse that sits right on the water. It is like a clubhouse and it's near the pool too. The wallpaper inside the boathouse is made of real birch bark - it was awesome. Some of our party used the kayaks available with the rental. The owner, Bill was helpful with all sorts of recommendations. There was a lot to do in Cooperstown besides the obvious baseball attractions. We visited the Art Museum and a new Vodka Distillery and went for a hike at Glimmerglass State Park. Plenty of restaurants too. We will definitely be back next year to spend more time in this beautiful well maintained home and this charming town!
This house is amazing and the owners are attentive and helpful. I had looked at many places to stay in the area, but this home can become an important feature of a trip to Cooperstown -- not just a place to sleep -- the home is a destination itself. We actually wanted to eat dinners in so we could spend more time and relax at this beautiful home. The heated pool was an added bonus in the early fall.
Beautiful home for a family vacation. Pool and boathouse were very convienent and fun for the kids and adults alike. The hill was a little steep but Bill was very helpful and thoughtful in allowing us to drive my 89 yr old grandma down to the pool so she could watch her great grandchildren swim and see the beautiful boathose that everyone was talking about! The hardest part was keeping our visitors to a minimum because everyone wanted to come look at the house once they heard how beautiful it was.
The house was beautiful. My family and I had a great time. The additional amenities on top of the spectacular house, such as the pool/boathouse/dock, made it even more enjoyable. The lake is perfect as well. Lots of other fun family stuff to do in the area too. I highly recommend it!
Our week at the Arrowhead property was excellent. Three families with kids ranging from 5-15. Each family had a son playing at the Cooperstown Dreams Park and a lot of time was spent there. The drive to and from the park was pleasant with nice attractions along the way. The house is a nice as the pictures suggest. Well stocked with plenty of room right on the lake. We all enjoyed swimming in the lake and using the kayaks and canoe. The pool is nice and the boathouse was beautiful. We grilled most nights. I brought my bike and the lake provides a nice 25 mile loop over rolling hills and through downtown Cooperstown. Some of the other families that visited were blown away at how nice the property is. There are a lot of things to do and places to see that unfortunately we did not have time to enjoy. It is a great place to unwind after a day at the park. I would definitely recommend this to any family traveling to Cooperstown for a week.
The pictures don't do this house justice - you have to see it to believe it! We found ourselves rushing home from Dreams Park so we could enjoy the house, the pool, the boathouse, the lake, and the beautiful views. The owner, Bill, was great and Ken, the handyman, was incredibly helpful with anything we needed. We can't wait to go back!
Our week in Cooperstown was the ultimate baseball experience and our stay in this amazing lake house was everything you could ask for and more. Every detail is exactly the way it is described - these Houses are simply amazing! The property is breath taking, very well maintained and a short 15/20 min drive to the Dreams Park. We had siblings with us that ranged in age from 6-15 who had a great time at the lake, boat house and pool. The restaurants in the area are extremely accommodating to large groups and the shops and museums are perfect things to do with any down time. There is no better place to stay in Cooperstown! Thanks Bill!
Priceless!! I walked away feeling like I had become part of one of Norman Rockwell's paintings! The property is absolutely beautiful and not a detail was missed in this one of a kind house. It comfortably accomodated 4 families. The kayak's & canoe were used on a daily basis as well as the pool. There was nothing more peaceful than to wake early and read in the boat house amongst the quiet of the sunrise. This was one of the best vacations we have taken in years!! We will definitely return in 3 years when our youngest heads to Coopertown!
Wow !! What a great house for any type of getaway. The location is perfectly situated on a beautiful lake. This home is very spacious for a couple of families to chip in on for a week for Cooperstown little league world series, like we did. The owner was very easy to get a hold of while our stay The only thing that was a hit or miss was cell service and Internet connection, but hey if you have great time and great accommodations you can live without that at the home Roll Thunder. (GA)
We had the best vacation possible when we stayed at the uber-luxe lakefront home the week of June 28, 2013. We had been planning this vacation for a couple years and could not have been in a better place. The owner and the maintenance people where attentive and helpful just making us acquainted with the property. Not only is it the most beautiful property in Cooperstown it was close enough to enjoy the baseball and quite enough to enjoy the lake and family. Mingo's is just down the the road and definitely a must see. There are so many side trips to take and your not to far from Albany if you need an airport. even with all the rain it was beautiful. The photos and comments don't do justice to the house. We are already talking about another trp.
11 of us stayed at the awesome super sooped-up luxurious cottage/mansion. Everyone was thoroughly impressed and gave me alcolades since I organized this bachelor weekend. Not only is the house awesome, we had access to the lake, boat house, and pool (though we never used the pool, sigh). Finally, the location is definitely convenient. We were basically only there all day for Fri & Sat and managed to hit the grocery store, play 18, pick up pizza, go to the baseball HOF, go to brewery Ommegang, and hit the fine bars of Cooperstown during our short stay. Highly recommended! Thanks Bill!
Bill I just wanted to reach out and express how much enjoyment we had staying at your lovely property. Not only did the house meet the descriptions from the website, it far exceeded them in person. The Hall was a great visit but your home became the destination. The attention to detail throughout kept us amazed at every turn. Thank you again for the great accommodations, Myself and my family look forward to one day returning.
We were a family of four adults and three children on a trip to Cooperstown to celebrate Easter together. To say that this house was remarkable is an understatement. It was something that you could never even imagine. We had a wonderful stay in this house and have memories to last a lifetime. talk about the best Easter egg hunt ever! The house was spotless and had everything to make it a a home away from home. Although we had the best time in chilly weather, I am sure this place is magnificent in the summer. We can't wait to return!
Another truly amazing romantic getaway at our favorite "camp" in the Northeast. This is our 3rd year in a row at Arrowhead Pointe in January (yes, Winter in Cooperstown) but our first stay in “Oneida” and it was absolutely magnificent. Waking up right next to the lake brought the experience to an entirely new level. Plus, with a full moon Saturday night and temperatures falling below zero (-6!), we slowly fed the beautiful fireplace, absorbing every ounce of warmth it provided while simultaneously gazing out the great room window at the lake and full moon above…so peaceful, serene and rejuvenating. Nowhere, we mean nowhere reconnects us to what matters in life like Arrowhead Pointe…to nature, to each other and to a deep gratitude for all of God's gifts. This is why we return year after year... We are eternally grateful for your generosity in sharing your masterpiece. See you next year...
THIS WAS A DREAM COME TRUE! An amazing experience, this log house is unforgettable. The pictures do not do it justice. This was an ideal getaway for me and even though it snowed 8 inches, we felt like we were in a winter wonderland. The scenery was picturesque and we could not take enough photos. Bill was in contact with me before, during and after my arrival. He was very reliable and always willing to answer any and all questions I had. The fireplace was perfect and we had a great time cooking in the beautiful kitchen. I cannot wait to go back here again. I am already looking at the calendar to see when I can go back. I feel fortunate I had the chance to see and stay in such a gorgeous home.
THIS IS THE PLACE YOU HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED ABOUT. We felt as though we were living in a giant tree house with all the modern conveniences possible. What a masterpiece! We loved every minute of our vacation at this awesome home and can't wait for the time when we can return again. There were a few days when we never left, but just relaxed, read a book, or tested our culinary skills with the Wolf oven. Although we went at the end of November and the weather was changing; it sure didn't hamper our trip. We had some sun, some rain, and even some snow; but that didn't make a bit of difference. We couldn't use the pool or the kayak on lake, but we still could listen to great music or to the geese squawking out on the lake as they planned their southern route. We loved the morning sun rises, hiking through Glimmerglass State Park, having a fire in the fireplaces inside and out, cooking outside on the grill, taking our time going through the Baseball Hall of Fame without the crowds, going to the Farmer's Museum, sipping a few glasses of wine, playing board games, visiting Cooperstown, or just doing nothing, but RELAXING. It is a wonderful home with plenty of nooks and crannies to get lost in. There wasn't anything that we lacked. NOTHING! We keep telling all of our friends about it and back up our words with plenty of picutres. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of staying in your great home. We all had such a wonderful vacation!
OMG! What a beautiful place, I don"t think my family and I have ever stayed at such a beautiful, warm and inviting home. This home has everything you need for a family getaway. The grounds are incredable and the scenery was breathtaking! Fall foliage never looked so good! If your a baseball fan, then you will love Cooperstown and The Baseball Hall of Fame just a few minutes away, if not, there is plenty of things for the whole family to do!. What a great place to make lots of family memories, can't wait to go back! Thanks for creating such a wonderful place!
Words cannot describe the feeling when first stepping foot into Oneida Lodge North. It is a remarkable feeling I'll never forget for as long as I live. My friends and family were so blown away upon entering, that everyone sat in silence for nearly 15 minutes, I kid you not! The craftsmanship of the cabin; the sweeping views; that 245 year old Canadian white pine with spiral staircase! I'm already looking for an excuse to return next year. If you love natural beauty, look no further. I will never even consider the thought of staying anywhere else while in the Cooperstown area. Thank you so very much, Bill & Liz!!! Cheers...
A group of friends and I were looking for a relaxing weekend getaway outside of Boston and New York. What we found was a relaxing and beautiful retreat with all of the comforts and amenities of a 5 star resort. We spent most of the weekend lounging by the fire, kayaking, and taking trips into the post-card perfect town of cooperstown. Not to mention all the cooking we did in what could be an award-winning kitchen. Reserving the house was very easy and the owners were a joy to work with. We didn't have any problems or issues upon arrival and no one bothered or disturbed us the entire time. Definitely looking to come back here in the future. We made many great memories and the trip became an instant memory for me and my friends. Thank you so much Bill for helping organize such a beautiful weekend. Mark
We had an amazing weekend at ArrowHead Pointe in Cooperstown! The kids enjoyed swimming in the heated pool in October and playing Fooseball in the Boathouse. The condo is beautiful with every amenity you could want - lots of comfy places to read and relax by the fire. The views of the lake and fall foliage were breathtaking - we will definately be back!
We had a wonderful time at this amazing location. The house is beautifully done, with special attention to detail. It was so comfortable, it felt like "home". The most beautiful views from the balcony facing the lake allow for a very relaxing stay. The boathouse has everything you need and is a great place to relax. The owner, Bill, was incredibly responsive to all of our requests which made our stay that much more comfortable. We expect to made this "our" place whenever we are in the area. Thank you Bill for making our stay a memorable one:)
"Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your house last week for our visit to Cooperstown. The house was beautiful and we all really enjoyed our stay there. The boys were a bit jealous when they saw our accomodations versus theirs at the baracks at Dreams Park. We will recommend your house to others that will be traveling to the area next year."
Thank you so very much for creating such a wonderful place for us to live for a week!! Your home is stunning! The amenities were perfect and we would not have had the amazing time we did have without having a spacious home to come back to with friends! Thanks again for all of your help
We rented the home with 3 other families to stay while our boys were taking part in the Cooperstown Dreams Park Tournament. It was a wonderful week! The house could not have been more perfect for our stay.....the pool being right there was perfect for our down time between games. Although it is only 12 miles from the park, driving on windy roads and through downtown, it did take us 30 minutes each way. (might be valuable info for anyone needing or wanting a shorter ride). The lake was beautiful although swimming right from shore was not possible with all the lake grass and lily pads. Renting a pontoon bpat was the perfect idea and providing us with that website wa much appreciated. The home itself is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and provided ample space for all 4 families with all the amenities we could ask for. The week was truly memorable and we enjoyed our stay very, very much! Thank you!
My families first experience vacationing on a lake and won't be our last! Relaxing, peaceful, beautiful place to get away from it all. The home was amazing inside and out. We all enjoyed the amenities this property had to offer. It was nice to be so close to Cooperstown for our boys games, but far enough away to relax and take in the beautiful lake. I highly recommend this place to stay and we will definitely be back in two years when our younger son plays in Cooperstown.
Wow! What an amazing home! We arrived to a beautiful home that was equipped with everything that we needed to enjoy our vacation! You could clearly see that this home had many years of thought & hard work put into it! Not only the home, but the boat house, pool, & grounds were so beautiful! This was a short drive to Cooperstown ball field, but yet a wonderful escape! Bill was wonderful to work with! We would highly recommend this Wonderful home to friends & family!
My friends and I spent a wonderful "girls weekend" at this beautiful house. The owners were very helpful and took care of our every need immediately. The house is in pristine condition, with beautiful views and more than enough room for a group to spread out. It was the perfect setting and Cooperstown was a lovely way to spend Saturday afternoon. This group rents often in New York State, and I would highly recommend this location.
My friends and I stayed at this house this past March and had a wonderful time. The house exceeded our expectations in every way and was a great place to stay at. We were blown away by the level of detail put into everything. When I go back to visit I would not consider staying anywhere else.
We held our small wedding at Arrowhead Pointe and our experience was off the charts amazing! Our wedding weekend was exactly how we envisioned it and we've received so much positive feedback from our friends' and family about hosting them on the property. Everyone is already asking us to do our 5 year anniversary there as a reunion! We couldn't have asked for better weather or a more magnificent venue.
The Lodges at Arrowhead Pointe served as the perfect backdrop for our families 2011 Thanksgiving Weekend celebration. We have always admired this property and we thought Thanksgiving would be a perfect opportunity to experience and enjoy the beauty of Arrowhead Pointe. We were not disappointed. From the well-appointed kitchen, to the beautiful autumn views over the lake - this year's Thanksgiving was one to remember. We hope to get back up there soon.
I typically don't read consumer reviews and I have never written one, in any context - until now. Prior to writing this, I spent time trying to come up with balanced commentary weighing positives & negatives. The challenge was finding the negatives. This is a 100% first class experience. If the price is above your budget, its worth it, if its in your budget, you will not be disappointed. We are intimately familiar with Cooperstown and have our own place there - but for logistical reasons had to rent another property for a long weekend. We were fortunate to have spent it at Arrowhead Pointe - it will meet and exceed even the most discriminating tastes. As the pictures indicate, the quality of the construction is off the charts. Couple this with the unique/original features - 42 foot, 3 story, towering tree trunk that acts as the anchor for an incredible stairway, top quality kitchen, baths, bedrooms & fireplaces - the experience is a very memorable one - bring a good camera. No detail is missed - for those who love to build a fire you know it's an art, not a science. When you walk in, there is a proper fire waiting to be lit - only one match needed (really!). Not to enough DRY, properly sized kindling & wood for a roaring fire as long as you can stay awake. The construction, views of the lake and general atmosphere are so impressive you just might forget to enjoy the Cooperstown experience. Keep in mind we went in February - in the summer months with the boathouse, lake & warm summer nights, unreal. The owners are wonderful people that have long-standing connections with the area & take personal pride in making sure your experience is flawless. If you need to call them (in our case to ask for something that was already there) they are extremely responsive. Do yourself, you family and/or friends a favor & experience AHP. Whether a long weekend or a full summer week - not only will you not be disappointed, you'll have a hard time leaving.
