Why Peter Kapsales chose Cooperstown

We use this property ourselves in the off-season and rent it to cover costs. Any income above cost we invest back in the property. This is not a cash making business like all the rentals in the Cooperstown area and we price our rental at break-even.

Lovely home away from home

We had a wonderful stay at this property. It was spacious, clean, and well stocked. The view of the lake from the deck was spectacular. I would absolutely recommend this property to family and friends...And we hope to visit again!

Charming and spacious lake side home!

  • 5 of 5

Recently concluded our dad's only trip to Cooperstown to take in the holiday weekend Hall of Fame festivities and a concert at Ommegang brewery. The location of this property is fantastic as it's very close to the village of Cooperstown (4 miles) and it's situated on a hillside across the street from the lake so you have an awesome view.

The house is very spacious, clean and updated. We especially enjoyed the kitchen area with adjacent dining room for view of the lake. There's also a huge flat screen TV and very comfortable couch in the front living room area. The Wi-Fi is very good as well, all 4 of us could stream & surf the web with ease as there was plenty of bandwidth to go around.

The owner of the property was very nice and easy to contact via the VRBO app. We would definitely come back to this property in the future and may even bring our wives and children!

Long weekend retreat

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house with views of the lake. Spacious rooms in great condition, the dining room and deck are lovely locations to watch boats/water. The staircase leading upstairs is steep, so if anyone has difficulty climbing stairs it could be an issue. Also, the dock for the lake is located across the street so be cautious with children. The only issue I had was with the huge list of must/must not do's - I realize it's a rental so you have to be over cautious but some of the items are laughable.

Owner's Response: Thank you! The list of must/must not do's is focused on the summer weekly rentals by baseball teams which sometimes get out of hand. We understand many are not applicable to the average tourist.

Beautiful Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying at this property during a Cooperstown week for my son. House was fully stocked with all that you could want. The drive to the fields was approx 12-15 min, which was manageable. We spent many hours fishing off of there dock and small little beach area. Would stay again if the occasion arose.
