COOPERSTOWN, NEW YORK PROPERTY EST. 1909 Resting on over 700 feet of Lake Otsego shoreline, The Otesaga Resort Hotel opened its gracious doors on July 12, 1909. Of its beauty, a local paper wrote, “No more fortunate location could have been chosen for a hotel. From its windows and broad veranda, a view as charming as the Divine Hand ever painted fills the eye.” Today, this seasonal resort exudes elegance in its signature Neo-Georgian details, a stately wood-columned portico, and dome-capped cupola. The Otesaga (Iroquois for “a place of meetings”) and its Leatherstocking Golf Course have drawn visitors for generations. The resort’s sister property, The Cooper Inn, was built in 1813 as a private residence for the wealthy Phinney family, who named it Willowbrook, and welcomes guests year-round. Lake Otsego is the “Glimmerglass” of James Fenimore Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales.
