"Bleisure" Travel: Combining Work and Leisure at The Otesaga

By: The Otesaga Resort Hotel / 29 Nov 2019

While being constantly on the road can be wearying, a growing number of travelers turn work trips into an opportunity to be tourists, too. The "bleisure" travel trend, a combination of work and fun, is perfect for professionals who find themselves longing to explore and enjoy these destinations outside of the confines of the business trip. The Otesaga is the perfect spot to extend your time away to include some much-needed relaxation, with the amenities you need to unwind when your work is done. Read on for how this upstate New York hotel is the perfect antidote to your business itinerary.

Now Comes the Fun Part

You've made it to the vacation portion of your trip, so why not start off on a high note with a massage or facial? Hawkeye Spa has just what you need to decompress after putting in all that hard work, with a wide array of options when you're ready for some "me" time. Looking to recover from a stressful work week? Try the Blues Be Gone Massage, designed to combat the stress of our on-the-go lifestyle.

All Work, No Play?

It's not everyday that you can cap off work with a round on an award-winning golf course, but The Otesaga can provide exactly that! Leatherstocking Golf Course offers some of the best views of Otsego Lake, and is a great way to unwind and stay active. This scenic and challenging course is a great way to enjoy the outdoors after spending your days in meetings.

Fun For Everyone

A notable upside that comes with bleisure travel is bringing the family along for some fun, too. Of course, it helps if there are lots of activities to keep everyone else engaged while you're finishing up with business. At The Otesaga, the family will be endlessly entertained, with world-class museums within walking distance, like the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum, The Farmers' Museum, and Fenimore Art Museum. During the warmer seasons, the family can explore Otsego Lake by renting kayaks, paddleboards, or canoes from the hotel, or rent a bike to discover the shops and delicious food on Main Street in Cooperstown.

A Vacation to Savor

No trip, bleisure or otherwise, is complete without delicious food that you'll be talking about for years to come. Whether you're enjoying a family meal at Hawkeye Bar & Grill, a quiet dinner with your better half at 1909, or relaxing with a cocktail to celebrate a successful work trip, The Otesaga has several options on site to satisfy everyone's palate.

If your next business trip finds you near Cooperstown, make sure you leave yourself with plenty of time to extend your time away with a stay at The Otesaga. With resort amenities, delicious dining, and attractions close by, you'll have everything you need to relax before heading back to the grind.
