I'm ruined, in a ...
I'm ruined, in a good way. I LOOOOOVED it here! So close to the lovely Otsego Lake, for nice walks in the morning, and nice views from the porch. Plenty of parking! Restaurants on site. Can get breakfast as an option added to your room. COVID protocols were top flight. Sneeze guards at the desk. They took our temp when we checked in. I guess they figure it's a closed environment, so they don't check every day or when you go in and out. They also do not have housekeeping service until you check out, so no bed making or room cleaning the duration of your stay. A bit of a walk into town, but I'm spoiled (I've stayed just off Main Street in the past lol). We got a special for Fenimore Art Museum access (it was very good). Driving distance to Fenimore or Farmers Museum. I didn't use the good course. We ate breakfast on site every day. Though I live in the city and don't like indoor dining yet, I felt safe in this place. Also, they have a set up for coffee to go...which used to be self-service but is not anymore! (Evidenced by the picture haha) One tip I'd like to make to the Otesaga: I'd love to see list of Hall of Famers and the rooms they've stayed in. That would be so interesting! No fridge in the room. But they do have disposable ice buckets, and I brought bottled water and booze (!!) and kept it on ice. Comfy beds! I stayed in a king. Whenever I visit Cooperstown, I get sad because I never know the next time I'll be able to go. I do know the next time, I'll be staying here
The staff took excellent care of us from beginning to end. Beautiful setting, luxury accommodations, 5 star Hawkeye Grill menu. The Winter Garden is such a unique setting for dinner, the space is heated and they have blankets available if needed. The rooms are beautifully appointed and wrap you up in a warm hug. 5 stars isn't enough. 10/10. We will be back
