New York City gets all the attention, but the state of New York has plenty more going for it than that town alone. Case in point: if you venture a few hours north of NYC to Cooperstown, you’ll find yourself lost in a beautiful green wilderness punctuated with picturesque towns and villages. You’ll also find a spectacular luxury inn for sale.
This Cooperstown inn is anything but a standard small-town inn. Eighteen amazing guest rooms lay inside, each equipped with wireless Internet access, flat-screen televisions, and hotel-like amenities such as hair dryers and irons. Outside the main building, there’s also an included 3,000 sq. foot owner’s house with plenty of extras, including an attached two car garage and private office. In short, this inn is unlike any other bed and breakfast you – or your guests – have ever seen.
As great as the amenities of the inn are, it gets even better when you step outside. Cooperstown is a wonderful small New York town with a lot of major attractions, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the Glimmerglass Opera Company. But perhaps the greatest thing about Cooperstown is its location in the foothills of the beautiful Catskill Mountains of upstate New York.
Cooperstown’s small size and perfect location make it a great destination for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Indeed, the inn has embraced cycling in particular, and even has a small cycling center called the Big Ring Bicycle Clubhouse. However, it’s not only cyclists who will appreciate the Inn at Cooperstown. Outdoor entertainment seekers of all kinds will find something to do in or around town.
One of the most popular outdoor destinations in the nearby area is Otsego Lake. Named for the county it rests in, the lake is a popular spot for fishing, boating, swimming, and just enjoying the warm sun. Interestingly, it’s also the main source of the Susquehanna River, which (if you have a lot of time on your hands) you could follow the whole way to Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay. Otsego Lake is also the home of the Glimmerglass Opera, which is located on the lake’s west bank. The opera is actually named for the lake: James Fenimore Cooper, a native of the town, called the lake “Glimmerglass Lake” and even mentioned it in his novels The Pioneers and The Deerslayer.
We could go on about all of the amazing things you can find in this little New York town, such as the amazing museums and historical sites, the fantastic natural scenery, and the friendly and welcoming people of the community. In the end, though, it all adds up the same: Cooperstown is a fantastic place to visit or to live, and this inn is just part of the proof.
