We stayed at the Otesaga Resort Hotel in January 2021 (before vaccinations) and had an awesome stay!! I meant to write this review much earlier but now I am finally getting a chance. This is an extraordinary hotel due to the excellent staff and customer service. My husband and I wanted to get away for our anniversary and the hotel had different packages available during this time. The hotel and staff provided hand sanitizer, temp checks, and made sure the customers and staff were safe. The customer service was incredible and you don’t find that level of service in many hotels or resorts. The staff went out of their way to assist and were so appreciative of the guests traveling in uncertain times since this industry was hit so hard during the pandemic. The hotel and the location were beautiful and there was a light snow falling outside when we arrived. We enjoyed a wonderful short walk to the Main Street to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. This was also another incredible experience since there were only about 3 other people visiting at the same time. The staff were so nice and went out of their way to show us different areas and exhibits and were also so appreciative of the customers coming to visit. This is a special town near a gorgeous lake with hiking, biking, golf, renowned Glimmerglass Opera, baseball HOF, Ommegang Brewery etc. We also had a wonderful salmon dinner at the hotel and delicious breakfast in the morning. We brought our snowshoes but decided to wear our hiking boots for a scenic walk near the golf course and lake area. We saw other people cross country skiing and snowshoeing on the hotel property. We highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return on an annual basis. I really loved going in the off season but the summer season would also be great because of the water and other outdoor activities.

My fiance and I recently stayed at the Otesaga in April 2021. We were considering the hotel as a venue for our wedding and although we did not end up choosing it, we cannot wait to return for another visit!! The rooms are luxurious, all of the staff members we interacted with during our stay were super friendly and helpful, and the grounds are truly unbeatable. We enjoyed walking around the lake and sitting on the porch rocking chairs next to a heater in the evening. Food at Hawkeye was delicious. Fire Bar was not yet opened for the season so we're excited to come back and check it out. Shout out to Gordon the head of F&B - he runs an amazing operation and delivered a wonderful Easter takeout service on the Sunday we left. This is an awesome resort for couples and families alike! A true perfect weekend getaway.

From the minute you walk in the door, till the last "Thank you" text, this place is Outstanding! During these difficult Covid safet times they still made you feel special. Courtious and friendly front desk staff, attentive and friendly staff at the Hawkeye Grill, all the way to the housekeeping staff doing a great job. Our room was immaculate and well appointed. The sheets were very soft but strong. Top of the line bath toiletries from Beekman 1802, phenominal. Walking around the grounds you get a feeling of majestic beauty everywhere overlooking the "Glimmerglass" of Otsego lake. Our room overlooked the 18th hole of the beautiful golf course. Like everything else in this town, this is what dreams are made of! We hope to visit again. Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay during the Easter weekend. The hotel is absolutely beautiful! We were very impressed with the historical decor without it looking old. The whole hotel was in very good condition and clean. We ate the Hawkeye Grill and were very pleased with the food and service. We would highly recommend this resort when going to Cooperstown. Everything is within walking distance which made it very convenient.
