There are many things to consider when planning corporate meetings, retreats or conferences. Between the budget, the food, room requirements and more, there is a lot to think about. However, there is a place that can make it all a one-stop shop in upstate New York - The Otesaga Resort Hotel in Cooperstown. Planning a destination meeting doesn't have to be scary and often, destination meetings are simpler as the meetings’ facility can help with a lot of the ancillary planning that goes into making a meeting or event worthwhile, fun and memorable. There’s no place like Cooperstown, and today, we’ll share all some of the reasons why it makes sense to plan your next destination meeting right here.
It’s not too small and not too big. Cooperstown is big enough that your team can explore the area, the rural landscapes and lake views, but also small enough that you’ll bump into colleagues as you browse the local shops, sights and restaurants. After all, it is coined America’s Most Perfect Village® for a reason.
Create conversation at Brewery Ommegang. Beer tastings and tours are great for starting casual conversation and forging new bonds between colleagues. Brewery Ommegang is the perfect place for your team to enjoy a brewery tour, drinks, dinner and the natural beauty of Central New York.
Live like VIPS at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Everyone loves feeling important, baseball fan or not. Plan special access at the legendary Baseball Hall of Fame with a sit-down dinner in the Hall of Plaques, complete with a private tour of the museum’s most noteworthy displays. Events are flexible and can be arranged to meet your team’s needs, budget and schedule.
Our food is to die for. Seriously. We’ve got rave-worthy food, all made fresh daily and in-house. Our breakfasts receive glowing reviews and our catering not only can meet the strictest dietary needs, but is also tasty, creative and will leave your team feeling like the menu was designed just for them - because it was. Our culinary team uses fresh, local ingredients that make every meal a memorable moment away from the office.
It’s hard to stay stressed here. With sweeping lake views around every corner, a gorgeous golf course, a spa, an outdoor heated pool, and many other activities, there’s plenty of ways to help your team relax. Have a casual happy hour planned on the veranda or simply point your team to the Fire Bar for sunset views and local beer, wine and handcrafted cocktails. The nostalgic feel of the hotel relaxes the mind, letting guests step into a pastime when life was just a little less rushed.
Truly, the best thing of all is that the team at The Otesaga will work with you to make whatever your group’s needs are a reality. No request is too big, odd, or out of left field - we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and make it happen. That’s why we’ve been in the industry for over 100 years, our service speaks for itself.
