While many travelers are drawn to Cooperstown in the summer, it truly is a four season destination. Don't tell, but springtime may be one of our best kept secrets! Read on to get the inside scoop on everything an off-season visit to our upstate New York hotel has to offer.
Cooperstown In Bloom
Open year round, The Otesaga is your home away from home in Cooperstown, no matter the season. In spring, one of the best spots to take in the natural beauty beginning to bloom is on our veranda. Relaxing in one of our rocking chairs, guests have a front row seat looking out onto the shimmering waters of Otsego Lake, with newly budding trees dotting the landscape. For visitors looking to immerse themselves in nature, take a drive to Glimmerglass State Park. Located at the northern part of the lake, there are several trails of varying difficulty, including the Sleeping Lion trail with its incredible views.
A Spring View
Springtime in Cooperstown also means the start of a new season of fascinating exhibitions at Fenimore Art Museum. Plan your getaway to be among the first to get a glimpse of Al Hirschfeld: Caricaturist to the Stars, Ralph Fasanella: Americans Unseen, Drawn from Life: Three Generations of Wyeth Figure Studies, and Unmasking Venice: American Artists in the City of Water. Just across the street from the Fenimore, The Farmers' Museum also opens its doors to visitors looking to learn more about New York's agricultural heritage. And a spin on the museum's historic Empire State Carousel will make you feel a kid again!
Ready for a Refresh
As we leave winter behind, spring is the perfect time for a reset. The cold, dry air of winter can wreak havoc on the skin, so be sure to include a visit to Hawkeye Spa during your getaway. Take time to renew with one of our restorative facial treatments, like the Moisture Drench Facial or Pure Results Facial. Looking to reenergize after a long winter indoors? Book one of Hawkeye Spa's invigorating massage treatments that is sure to leave you replenished for the months ahead. New to the spa's menu of services is the Himalayan Salt Stone/Hot Stone Massage, a great option for relaxing and exfoliating the skin.
If you're longing to explore Cooperstown at your own pace, a spring stay at The Otesaga is definitely in order. Reawaken your senses with a midweek getaway during our Back in Bloom Special, which includes discounted rates and tickets to your choice of Fenimore Art Museum or The Farmers' Museum. It's time to relax and renew at The Otesaga!
