The Otesaga, “A Place Of Meetings”

In keeping with its name, which is derived from the Iroquois word for “a place of meetings ,” meeting and conference planners will find The Otesaga ideal for groups as small as 10 or as large as 350.

Since 1909, The Otesaga, an imposing Georgian edifice occupying 700 feet of scenic Lake Otsego shoreline, has been one of the country’s premier, all-around resorts, providing first-class accommodations, fine dining and gracious hospitality.  The Otesaga continues to receive the coveted AAA Four Diamond Award for providing exceptional accommodations, excellent service, and an elegant atmosphere.

With 30,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, The Otesaga features 14 meeting and conference rooms, from the 2,600-square-foot impressive Ballroom and equal-sized Glimmerglass to small breakout rooms for more intimate and private settings.  The Otesaga is the perfect venue for daytime or overnight corporate gatherings, conferences and incentives, private dinners, weddings, and banquets any time of year.
