For the second year in a row Lake House Proprietors Chris and Gene Corrigan hosted a “Business after Hours” reception last night at their historic landmark hotel. Approximately fifty members of the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce attended. Matt Hazzard, newly appointed interim Executive Director of the Cooperstown Chamber was present. It was a perfect evening for the gathering as it...

The Lake House is simply divine! The service is excellent! Food and drinks are prepared very well! The very best characteristics are the gorgeous views and historic authenticity! We were there for a wedding in September and it was the perfect venue. Our daughter and her new hubby were so happy, so were we. The wedding took place on the...

Weddings at the Lake House are unique and personalized for each couple. Some choose to get married by the lake and enjoy a reception on our stage next to the lake- all the charm of a wedding under a picturesque tent with more advantages- a floor, professional lighting- not strings of lights, ample space with no poles in the way...

This is a fantastic property located on Candarago Lake. It has a great view from the deck. The staff is accommodating and everyone there has a smile and a pleasant hello. Alison on the piano on Friday night was very relaxing- she is very talented. I can’t wait for the fall foliage- it will be spectacular. I can’t say enough...

We came for five days at the Hotel and had a wonderful time. Evenings we did the smors by the lake and cooked them from the outdoor fireplaces. Our room had 2 queens and a twin on the first floor and was convenient to our car. The owner allowed us to bring our friends over for outdoor cooking and it...

We had our wedding and reception at the Lake House on August 2014. Our meal was just divine, as the chef went over and beyond to make it special for us.

We didn't stay at the Lake House; we stayed at the Baseball Hotel, part of the same business, located at 10 Gould Avenue in the center of Richfield Springs, which is about a 25-minute drive north of Cooperstown. The pluses: We could get a room there at the last minute in late August, when pretty much every other hotel in...

Dear guest- I am glad that you stayed with us at the Baseball Hotel. It is a great alternative to the high prices of Cooperstown and as you pointed out it is quick ride to the Hall of Fame. As I have mentioned, older buildings have smaller bedrooms than we are used to but all of our bedrooms are clean,...

We had a wonderful wedding reception at the Lake House in August 2014. It has a rustic atmosphere that was perfect - pretty but comfortable. We were able to take lovely photos by the lake. The food was really excellent (we particularly loved the salad display). The event planner, Ruth, made everything easy, and all the staff were thoughtful and...

My husband used AARP Travel/Expedia and sadly, we would have lost all of our money if we changed or cancelled no matter when. After I looked at the website and saw we were at the "Townhouses" I was really, really concerned. It reminded me of a "too good to be true" nightmare at the Poland Springs Resort" in 1976. Perhaps...

The low room price for the Cooperstown area had me worried, but we walked into an immaculate room. We were in the front room that had an awesome "lake view" and a deck. It was not a huge room, but perfectly sized for 4 adults and 1 child. The staff went over the top to make us feel welcome. The...
