Here are just a few ways to experience the beauty of America's Most Perfect Village!
Fresh Air, Fresh Flavors
As The Otesaga opens its doors to guests, delicious dining also returns to Hawkeye Bar & Grill. Offering a breathtaking view of Lake Otsego, the outdoor patio at Hawkeye pairs perfectly with the outstanding summer menu that Chef Jim Perillo has created for the season. Enjoy a Greek Farro Salad or Harissa Roasted Chicken with the beautiful natural landscape of Cooperstown as the backdrop for your memorable meal.
Main Street Treats and More
One of the can't-miss experiences in Cooperstown is a stroll down Main Street. Lined with stores and restaurants, the quaint charm surrounds you and encourages a leisurely stroll to take it all in. Enjoy an afternoon treat of ice cream while experiencing a picturesque upstate New York summer. If you're feeling inspired, explore the quiet village streets just off of Main Street, where you'll find several historic markers including Council Rock Park.
Guests of The Otesaga have been drawn to its serene lake views for 111 years, whether they're relaxing in a rocker on the veranda or sitting on a bench on the back lawn. For visitors looking for a more active way to experience nature, Cooperstown is full of great places to hike, bike, or walk your way to stunning views. The Sleeping Lion Trail at Glimmerglass State Park offers a challenge to hikers and bikers, with a climb of 435 feet; for those looking for a less strenuous hike, the Beaver Pond and Woodland Trails provide another way to enjoy the great outdoors. Of course, the "Glimmerglass" of James Fenimore Cooper's novels is a great way to beat the summer heat, with a swim in Otsego Lake.
If you're ready for outdoor adventures, Cooperstown is a must-stop on your itinerary. A stay at The Otesaga provides the perfect way to relax after a day of fresh air fun, with delicious dining and serene lake views.
