Finding the Balance: Work & Relaxation During Your Retreat

By: Otesaga Resort Hotel / 15 Aug 2023

Corporate retreats have become an essential part of business life, providing a way for teams to bond, strategize, and recharge away from the hustle and bustle of the office. Striking the right work/leisure balance is important to ensure a successful and memorable retreat. As one of the premier venues for meetings, The Otesaga takes pride in creating an environment that fosters both productivity and relaxation. Read on to see how our lakeside resort in upstate New York provides the perfect mix of work and fun.

Inspiring Spaces

Located amidst the picturesque landscapes of Cooperstown, New York, our historic resort hotel offers an idyllic setting that promotes a harmonious blend of work and leisure. For corporate groups seeking to maximize their productivity, we provide state-of-the-art meeting spaces equipped with modern amenities to facilitate efficient brainstorming and collaboration. Our conference rooms offer breathtaking views of Otsego Lake, instilling a sense of tranquility that enhances focus and creativity.

Fun on the Course & Cour

A corporate retreat, though, is not solely about work. It's essential for attendees to take a step back and indulge in leisure activities in order to rejuvenate their minds and build stronger connections with colleagues. Our award-winning Leatherstocking Golf Course, designed by the legendary Devereux Emmet, serves as an excellent outlet for relaxation and a little competition! Recently ranked as Golfweek's #2 public course in New York State, Leatherstocking offers some of the best views of Otsego Lake along its championship 18-hole course. Just across the street from the resort, our tennis and pickleball courts are an ideal option for some fun and friendly matches.

All Together

At The Otesaga, we curate various team bonding exercises and recreational activities that promote camaraderie among participants. At the resort, participants can take part in a variety of group activities, including wine tasting, yoga and meditation classes, and more. In partnership with the nearby Clark Sports Center, your group will have access to a variety of fitness classes, an indoor rock wall, outdoor ropes course, indoor swimming pool, and bowling alley. These kinds of activities not only encourage teamwork but also foster a sense of fun and adventure, creating lasting memories that strengthen professional relationships.

By providing flexible meeting facilities, a stunning natural backdrop, and an array of engaging leisure activities, The Otesaga is an inspiring environment where teams can deliver their next big idea while also enjoying well-deserved moments of relaxation.
