Ready for some winter fun? You can find plenty of outdoor activities here in Cooperstown. Besides, we all know a snowy adventure makes that mug of hot chocolate at the end of the day even more sweet! Read on to see some of our favorite ways to have fun outdoors during a winter stay at The Otesaga.
If you're looking to get outside, but not stray too far from the resort, we have winter fun options right outside our door! While our award-winning Leatherstocking Golf Course is closed for the season, a fresh blanket of snow provides the perfect conditions for some snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Don't want to bring your skis and snowshoes with you? Nearby Mt. Otsego Ski Shop is an option for renting equipment. Of course, planning your winter fun on the grounds of the resort means you're that much closer to warming up by the fireside!
For winter sports enthusiasts, Glimmerglass State Park offers a variety of ways to stay active. From snowshoeing to snowmobiling, there's snowy fun for every speed. Anglers can try their hand at ice fishing, as the park sits at the northern end of Otsego Lake. In January and February (weather permitting), the tubing hill is a popular spot for the young and young at heart. There are several trails in the park that are perfect for hiking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. A short drive from The Otesaga, Glimmerglass State Park is truly a winter wonderland!
Sometimes, the best way to enjoy winter is by doing nothing at all! Be sure to pack (or download!) a book or two, as well as your favorite comfy clothes, and settle in for some relaxation. If you feel inspired to stretch your legs, a walk to nearby Main Street is the perfect low key activity. Soak in all the quaint charm of Cooperstown as you stroll this iconic street and even do some last minute holiday shopping while you're at it!
There's no need to hibernate this winter. Whether you're ready to get outside or looking to stay in and unwind, take time to explore the beauty of the season with a getaway to The Otesaga
