Hotel accomodations July 27-28, 2008--outside of Cooperstown

by ldreesman

I have been looking online (Priceline and Travelocity) for accomodations for my family (husband and 14 yr. old son) for July 27th-28 and there is little available in Cooperstown, so I'm wondering what would be the next best place? Is Albany a doable drive? I noticed it's 77 miles which is not a long drive in Iowa but in this part of NY is it? If Albany isn't a good choice, what would be?

Try Fly Creek, only a few minutes away. Also, the Fieldstone Farm Resort in Richfield Springs is only about 10 miles away. See website:

Hi, travelgourmet,
Thanks for the tip about! I was able to find a place for one night, the Lakes & Pines. It sounds great. We were hoping to stay Sunday and Monday evenings but it's the "Hall of Fame weekend" so must book Friday-Sunday. Thanks again for your help!

Your welcome, Lisa. Cooperstown is crowded most of the summer, but that week you are there is going to be packed with the great and near great of baseball. A lot of excitement for the game as well. The actual induction of one retired baseball player, Goose Gossage, a relief pitcher for 22 years with 9 different major league baseball teams, maybe even your favorite, will take place on Sunday July 27,2008. It's a big day for Cooperstown and baseball. Enjoy your trip to pure Americana.

Travel Tips for Cooperstown

Baseball Galore

by Jenny_Scott

I am a big fan of baseball so seeing the Baseball Hall of Fame was very fun. If you are not into baseball there are still a lot of stuff you can so! The downtown is full of interesting shops and there are a variety of stuff you can buy. No matter what, Cooperstown will be a good trip. The thing I remember the most is playing mini putt at Jack Nicholas's (hope I spelled the name correctly) Golf Complex. There were mini waterfalls and the courses were quite challenging. I also remember losing my ball in the water and trying to get it out. I hope that if you go, you will visit here.

First Class Golfing!

by Bwana_Brown

The Leatherstocking Golf Course, which adjoins the Otesaga Resort, was recently rated as the 2nd best public golf couse in the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. It was designed in 1909 and is considered to be one of the most scenic and challenging golf courses in the East.

Located on the shores of Otesago Lake, this 18-hole, par 72 championship layout looks like it would be a fun course to try out! Here, some of the guys took a break and strolled out of our meeting room to enjoy the view of the course! Green fees are US$70 (if staying at the Resort) or US$80 otherwise. Electric cart rental is US$18. Not being much of a golfer, I was not overly tempted to try the course!

I was a bit slow on the uptake when I first wandered the grounds of the resort. Standing here, I noticed an older guy in a little skiff punting along the shore and trying to scoop things out of the water. Only later did I realize that he must have been doing his job of retrieving errant golf balls!!

The Farmer's Museum

by davecallahan

This is one of three museums in the area that are open from April to December. You can get a ticket for this one museum for $10 or buy a ticket to all three (Farmer's, Fenimore, Baseball) museums for $20.

The outdoor museum areas has homes, barns, farms, and fields like they would have been 200 years ago. The place is filled with "characters" in period clothing doing the work and everyday business of the 18th century. There are exhibitions of work skills and products produced and equipment used. Over 23000 authentic items are present in the whole museum.

There is a great gift shop where you can get homemade articles representing the 18th century or more modern teeshirts, caps and mugs. The Cottage Restaurant is there for your convenience to refill your energy reserves after spending two to three hours walking around the museum

The Baseball Hall of Fame

by KennetRose

It's what Cooperstown is all about. And it's the perfect example of what America does best. I found baseball as baffling as Americans find cricket, but this museum brings the game and all its cultural trappings alive.

The Fenimore Art Museum

by Bwana_Brown

In addition to building the Otesaga Resort Hotel, Edward Severin Clark, the 6th son of Edward Clark, also built a mansion in Cooperstown that eventually became the Fenimore Art Museaum.

Located on the shore of Lake Otesago, and within easy walking distance of the Resort Hotel, this Georgian-style building houses a renowned collection of fine, folk, decorative and American Indian art that presents the life-style of the formative 18th and 19th century years of this part of America.
