Nicely furnished cabin. High end kitchen, nice Weber grill, nice card table, pool table and pinball machine. Number of bathrooms was ideal for our group. Not super private. No main TV for watching College Football and the twin beds were not suitable for most adults. Owner was courteous and professional and answered all questions promptly.
Hi Christian. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We truly appreciate the opportunity to improve our "game":) It’s unfortunate you didn’t mention you had specific tv requirements. Several of our homes, including Snug Harbor, are set up deliberately to promote family togetherness/conversation...no tv in their great rooms. And other of our homes have giant screens or even one with a movie theater, perfect for watching sports of all types! Had we known of your intention, we'd have guided your group to a more appropriate TV- centric home:) Next visit, we'll make sure to match your group with a perfect sports-viewing home! All the best, Liz and Bill
First time for our golf group renting a house after 20yrs of staying down the road at the cabins. The house lived up to the listing and even exceeded expectations. Beautiful spot overlooking the lake, amazing view and full of every amenity you could ask for. We had 8 of us and there was plenty of room and sleeping arrangements worked out fine. The house layout is great with plenty of space throughout. Don't hesitate to rent this house for your group, it's perfect. Hope to come back next year!
Thank you for the positive review, Doug! More and more people are learning how a great vacation home rental can provide a more authentic experience of a local region. We’re very glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming your group back as Preferred Guests!
The property, amenities, VIEWS, access to lake are all wonderful. Thank you owners and manager!
Courtney, Your family was a pleasure to host and we are so happy everyone enjoyed the house and the lake amenities. We hope you'll visit with us again as Preferred Guests! Until then... all the best! Liz and Bill
Well appointed. Spacious. Great view. Lots of entertainment opportunities. Not on the water as implied. Needed to cross road to acces lake shore. Advertised as 4 bedrooms 4 baths but really 3 1/2 baths. Owner representative deserves 5 stars for responsiveness and communication. Overall the house is magnificent.
Snug Harbor was amazing. The house itself was extremely well kept and one of the cleanest VRBO's I've ever stayed in. The lake itself is picture perfect. Bring water shoes if you plan on swimming to avoid the Zebra Clams! The dock area, kayaks, trampoline were all great additions to the property as well. Would come back here in a heartbeat
And we will welcome you back as Preferred Guests in a heartbeat, as well! All the best, Liz and Bill
This was a great choice for our stay in Cooperstown. The house was as nice as the description on line. The setting on the lake is amazing, a great choice if there are siblings on trip not playing baseball. The house functions great for shared families, the amenities in the house are really nice (upgraded kitchen and baths, very fun basement with pool table), and the lake setting is beautiful. The owner/manager is very helpful and accessible!
Hey there Kerry, We're very glad your group enjoyed their stay at the lake. The water front activities are always a hit for all kids (and many grown-ups, as well)! All the best, Liz and Bill
We very much enjoyed our stay at Snug Harbor. The home was in great condition and had plenty of room for our families. It was also a convenient 20 minute drive from Cooperstown Dreams Park. The manager Bill was very responsive to our needs as well.
Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback, Jeff. We're glad you enjoyed your time at the lake and in and around Cooperstown. We'd be happy to host you and your family again any time you're in the area! Be well, Liz and Bill
We rented Snug Harbor for a weekend and had a wonderful stay. The house is clean, comfortable and luxurious. It easily accommodated our large group of 12. I especially appreciated the large, well-stocked kitchen and the powerful gas stove- great for cooking! The showers and bathrooms were large and beautiful, I wish I had them in my own home. The downstairs bar area was a great place to hang out and the fire pit was a nice spot to gather at night. The lakefront access made our trip very special. Otsego lake is one of a kind in its beauty and serenity. Our group was disappointed that the water trampoline was not yet in place for the season, as that was a major motivator in renting the property. (It would be helpful to note the installation date for the water trampoline and balance log on the house listing.) But instead we were able to use the kayaks, swim and hang out on the dock. Bill was highly communicative and good to work with. The directions to the house were helpful and specific. He responded quickly when I asked about the water trampoline. I would definitely recommend this property or another one of Bill's properties to a friend. Although our group was composed of adults, this rental would be a great place for a group with kids too.
Hi Fiona and thank you for your review; we always appreciate guests taking the time to share their observations. Liz and I are glad you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to welcoming back you and your friends in the future as Preferred Guests! Liz and Bill
We were very happy with our weekend getaway and celebratory weekend for our son. The property is immaculate, spacious, perfect for extended family too!!! Highly recommend this property!!! We want to go back again when we can enjoy the lake and water fun with boat, trampoline, and canoes!!!
Deb, Thanks so much for being great guests and we're very happy our home served you well during such an auspicious occasion. The trampoline is bobbing around on its mooring, just waiting for your return:) See you soon! Liz and Bill
Perfect excuse to get out of NYC for a weekend with the guys. Secluded, great lake, lots of space. Would rent again in a minute.
Cooperstown provides lots of excuses to visit our region! Every season offers new views, new experiences and the opportunity to spend time with friends and family in a family-friendly town!!
Came here with 11 friends on on a bachelor's weekend away. Was blown away. The place is absolutely beautiful. Huge house, ton of space, amazing kitchen and appliances. The kitchen is well equipped as well. The basement bar was an awesome place to hang out, so was the deck and the fire pit. We couldn't come up with a reason to leave! Since we went so late in the season, the weather wasn't the warmest for spending a lot of time in the cold lake. But the dock and the boathouse were great for us to sit out by the water and enjoy the view. A fair warning, cell reception is terrible and the WiFi was slightly unreliable. But the point in staying someplace like this is to get away from all that stuff anyway. Also, I should mention Bill was very easy to get a hold of and was available to answer any and all questions we had for him. I would highly recommend staying here to enjoy the beautiful Cooperstown area. Snug Harbor is the place to be!
Hi Joseph, A quick note to thank you for your kind words regarding your Cooperstown stay. The lakeside boathouse is a cool place to spend time...its proximity to the water and the protection it provides from any bad weather allows visitors a unique and up close lakefront experience. Perhaps consider a summer visit to really enjoy the lake!
The house is beautiful. About a dozen of us went up for a low key bachelor party and had an amazing time. The house was big, gorgeous, and full of everything needed to have an enjoyable time. Pinball ball machine, bar, fishing rods, fire pit, aqua trampoline. Such a great time we're thinking about doing it every year. Highly recommend it.
Hey Christopher! Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. Liz and I are always happy to hear from our guests and we're glad you and the gang enjoyed your visit. We look forward to welcoming you back any time!
Amazing home on the lake! It is absolutely beautiful. Quiet and peaceful but Cooperstown is just a ten minute drive away. House is so well appointed. I have rented many homes and never had a home have everything you could possibly need. Bill was helpful in every way and responded quickly to my many emails with all my questions. You will not be disappointed.
Ter, Thanks for your kind words. The home is really in a great location...with great water views and great lake frontage, even a great 10 minute ride along the edge of the lake to Cooperstown! Come back soon!
Fantastic house - really beautiful, nicely decorated, spacious, amazing kitchen. We really loved it. The lake and dock are amazing, and Bill Miller was both responsive and helpful with any questions or issues we had. Note that the house is not directly on the lake - it is across the road and up the steps - two minutes to walk - but nevertheless across the road. Again, we loved it and would highly recommend it.
We enjoy helping our guests get the most from their Cooperstown visit...we love the area and the lake. And we love when our visitors enjoy their stay! We hope to see you again....you were fantastic guests!!
Snug Harbor is great get away location to Cooperstown. Great location: Right off Otsego lake,12 minutes from downtown, and 18 minutes from fields. The place was very clean and a great family atmosphere. I would highly recommend it!
Snug Harbor is really a convenient location...a beautiful 8 minute drive along the edge of the lake to Cooperstown. And with its own private lake frontage, dock and huge floating trampoline, a lot of guests choose to simply spend their time right at the lake!! Thanks for your kind words!!
Snug Harbor is an amazing place to stay for a get away to Cooperstown. Located just off of Otsego Lake, it's the perfect spot to take in all the sights while still being close enough to downtown Cooperstown. The house comfortably fit a large group of people while offering endless entertainment inside and out. I highly recommend staying at Snug Harbor if you plan to visit Cooperstown. You won't be let down.
Pinball, billiards, a little poker on the card table...swim in the lake and some relaxation overlooking the lake. A perfect way to spend a day in Cooperstown! Thanks for being awesome guests!!
We booked this spot within 4 days of learning our teams assigned week in the tournament. The nice homes go quick so I would jump as soon as possible. House was split with 4 sets of parents, and 3 siblings. The house was very comfortable and well,stocked. Really loved the boat house for fishing, trampoline, and paddle boards we rented. Just hanging on the edge of thinkable anytime was relaxing. Trip to the fields is about 20 minutes, and a nice drive. Since I booked, my wife and I got the master and it was very nice. we cooked several nights as the restaurants around Cooperstown were so sporadic with service and quality. Kitchen was conducive to a group meal. Everyone enjoyed the house and I was applauded for my find compared to what others. Only thing was finding the hose for the first time, and at especially at night, and I can imagine the road can be a challenge in weather. Could use some covered outdoor space.
Thanks for your review! The benefits of being located out of town is the privacy and ability to enjoy the lake. And our home is really a perfect place to share with another family; large enough to provide privacy when needed and several public spaces for gathering. Summer or winter, the views are fantastic!
Our stay at Snug Harbor during the Cooperstown Dreamspark experience was fabulous. The location of the home is close enough to the park to be convenient for baseball play, but far enough away for family relaxation time! Everyone loved the gameroom as well as the water trampoline! The rooms were very comfortable and the family also loved time around the fire pit during cool evenings.
Being on the lake and yet just a few minutes from town, shopping, great restaurants and, yes even baseball, does make Snug Harbor a very attractive "base of operations". We're very grateful for your note and thankful that you enjoyed your stay!
Beautiful house! Perfect for a multi family gathering. Owner provides everything you need. There is something for everyone, whether you need to relax to get away from it all or get active and find adventure. Close to town if anything is needed but at the same time, far enough away to have privacy and enjoy the peace and quiet of the lake and woods. Great kitchen, we cooked wonderful meals all week. Owner is readily available should you need anything. We loved this house!
"We loved this house." And we love to hear this from our guests! But, we appreciate ALL feedback...it helps us understand our guests needs and allows us to adjust and improve our property to ensure the best guest experience possible.
This beautiful home was an absolutely perfect respite from exciting, but often overwhelming urban life. Ideal for relaxing, you can book this home confident in the knowledge that every amenity you could possibly wish for will be available. If you're interested in a luxury escape, you'll be hard pressed to find any finer place.
Our goal is to provide the best Cooperstown vacation experience possible...from the coolest lake front home in the area to the most attentive customer service available. We appreciate hearing from our guests how they enjoyed their time at Snug Harbor...some love spending quiet time in the home while others simply can't get enough "lake time"... jumping on the floating trampoline, kayaking, fishing, swimming and so on. Whatever your desire, we can assure you we will do all that's possible to make your stay enjoyable and memorable!
We enjoyed staying at Snug Harbor last August. The house is new and beautiful inside. It is surrounded by trees that keep the house private and quiet. There are well built and lit steps down to the water where we enjoyed fishing, playing on the water trampoline and reading on the dock. It was the perfect house for our large family gathering with a lot of different spaces on property for different activities including having a campfire, having morning coffee on the great porch, playing games in the game room, cooking family meals, and swimming in the lake. I highly recommend this house. The owner was very accommodating and kind.
Great experience......our second year, already reserved for 2015. Kids had a blast with fishing and swimming in lake. Adults can "unwind" downstairs in gameroom/bar. Huge "open" floor plan in kitchen/family space. Quiet, won't be bothered. Owners very helpful..... 2015 will be three times in three years, says it all for me......and our family isn't just driving from the city.....we're flying across the country !!
We truly appreciate the opportunity to welcome back prior guests. Over the years we have met so many wonderful people who have vacationed in our homes. And to know they treasure our lodge so much they fly across the country to spend more time here is really satisfying. We love our home and we love to share it with new friends.
Wow! What a spectacular, luxury appointed house on Otsego Lake. It was so nice that I booked a second stay. It is just minutes from "downtown" Cooperstown and sleeps a small army of friends and family. The boat house is a nice touch where you can spend some quality time right on the lake. You will not be disappointed as it has everything you and your family would come to expect from such an exceptional property. Enjoy!
The Boathouse is our favorite place to spend our summer afternoons...swimming and a nice long paddle in the kayaks on a perfectly calm lake provides our exercise for the day. The kids tire themselves out swimming and jumping on the floating trampoline and then we top off the day with a cruise around the lake. Come and experience "Heaven on Earth"!!
By the lake...
A beautiful house on a beautiful lake! Owners were quick to respond to any questions or problems.
Warm and Inviting
Snug Harbor is a gorgeous home right across the street from Otsego Lake. The home is warm and inviting with fabulous views of the lake. The furnishings are great, the decor is beautiful and the house is very well stocked. We especially enjoyed all the lake activities- swimming, kayaking, fishing and of course the water trampoline. My family was in town for the Baseball Hall of Fame inductions. Bill (the owner) was very responsive and friendly offering help with restaurant reservations or anything we might need. I highly recommend Snug Harbor and would definitely rent it again!
Hello Elizabeth and thank you for your lovely note. We certainly look forward to welcoming you and your family back as Preferred Guests. Thanks for taking such good care of the home! Liz and Bill
Absolutely awesome place for a quick getaway! The location is awesome right off the lake and only a quick drive to Cooperstown. We really enjoyed the pool table, pinball machine and we had a blast with the floating trampoline. Would highly recommend!
We love it when our guests love it! Thank you, Liz and Bill
