We did not stay at the hotel, Went for a spa treatment and then sat on the rocking chairs overlooking the golf course and lake. What a gorgeous view ! The hotel is very stately and the grounds are beautiful

We ate in the upstairs Dining Room, and the Mother's Day Brunch had everything! In something like two and a half hours we grazed, talked, grazed some more, and talked. I started with an omelet, made to order by Leonard - - - who knows how to make omelets! Some started with dinner, choosing prime rib, lamb, ham, or portions...

In one word BREATHTAKING! When you pull up to the gates you see this majestic structure and once you walk through the doors you are instantly transported to the early 1900s. Gorgeous decor, intricate details, and a breathtaking view just outside the verandah doors of the Ostego Lake. The rooms are beautifully appointed with early 1900 decor but all the...

The Otesaga is a beautiful hotel set in a beautiful location on the lake. It is very close to the HOF, they have great food, amazing service, very nice staff, and huge rooms. The only reason I am giving this four instead of five stars is the fire alarm went off several times during my stay. One of those times...

My Fiance and I went on an impromptu stop in Cooperstown as she had never been to the Baseball Hall of Fame. We loved the little town so much that we decided to stay the night. We came across the Otesaga in our search for local accommodations and decided to walk in and see if they had any vacancies. When...

Great variation in rooms, size & location. I prefer 3rd floor, far enough over lower roof but low enough to walk up and down (elevators are very slow). Rooms facing lake have beautiful view. Property, in and out, is kept in excellent condition. Food is excellent, better than you might expect in this kind of property and prices are very...

We enjoyed the Easter Buffet at the Otesaga Hotel this year. The hotel is a fabulous facility, GRAND does not do it justice. From valet parking, to a super attentive wait staff the service was outstanding. The food was indescribable! Huge shrimp cocktail, lamb, prime rib and loads more. The dessert table alone was 4 full tables. Sitting there with...
