About William Miller

Liz and I have been welcoming guests to our Cooperstown vacation retreats for more than a decade. We believe a well maintained and spotlessly clean home is just a small component of a great vacation experience. Too often, consumers experience the result of lack of focus on the part of service providers...telephone calls go to voicemail... emails go unanswered...questions are unanswered and problems go unresolved.

Our philosophy; Great Vacation Experiences Begin And End With Great Customer Service.

For this reason, we have chosen to limit the number of homes we manage to ensure our ability to provide the best customer service possible. Our goal is to leverage a lifetime of intimate knowledge of the Cooperstown area to enable our guests to experience all that Cooperstown has to offer... we are "locals" providing visitors with inside information to enhance their time in our special region.

We are standing by, ready to help you. Call us...908-304-4666 or email us at

Safe travels, Liz and Bill

Snug Harbor was a great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Snug Harbor. The home was in great condition and had plenty of room for our families. It was also a convenient 20 minute drive from Cooperstown Dreams Park. The manager Bill was very responsive to our needs as well.

Absolutely beautiful property + lake

  • 5 of 5

We rented Snug Harbor for a weekend and had a wonderful stay. The house is clean, comfortable and luxurious. It easily accommodated our large group of 12. I especially appreciated the large, well-stocked kitchen and the powerful gas stove- great for cooking! The showers and bathrooms were large and beautiful, I wish I had them in my own home. The downstairs bar area was a great place to hang out and the fire pit was a nice spot to gather at night. The lakefront access made our trip very special. Otsego lake is one of a kind in its beauty and serenity. Our group was disappointed that the water trampoline was not yet in place for the season, as that was a major motivator in renting the property. (It would be helpful to note the installation date for the water trampoline and balance log on the house listing.) But instead we were able to use the kayaks, swim and hang out on the dock.

Bill was highly communicative and good to work with. The directions to the house were helpful and specific. He responded quickly when I asked about the water trampoline. I would definitely recommend this property or another one of Bill's properties to a friend. Although our group was composed of adults, this rental would be a great place for a group with kids too.

Bachelor's weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Came here with 11 friends on on a bachelor's weekend away. Was blown away. The place is absolutely beautiful. Huge house, ton of space, amazing kitchen and appliances. The kitchen is well equipped as well. The basement bar was an awesome place to hang out, so was the deck and the fire pit. We couldn't come up with a reason to leave!

Since we went so late in the season, the weather wasn't the warmest for spending a lot of time in the cold lake. But the dock and the boathouse were great for us to sit out by the water and enjoy the view.

A fair warning, cell reception is terrible and the WiFi was slightly unreliable. But the point in staying someplace like this is to get away from all that stuff anyway. Also, I should mention Bill was very easy to get a hold of and was available to answer any and all questions we had for him. I would highly recommend staying here to enjoy the beautiful Cooperstown area. Snug Harbor is the place to be!

Owner's Response: Hi Joseph, A quick note to thank you for your kind words regarding your Cooperstown stay. The lakeside boathouse is a cool place to spend time...its proximity to the water and the protection it provides from any bad weather allows visitors a unique and up close lakefront experience. Perhaps consider a summer visit to really enjoy the lake!

Amazing, fun, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. About a dozen of us went up for a low key bachelor party and had an amazing time. The house was big, gorgeous, and full of everything needed to have an enjoyable time. Pinball ball machine, bar, fishing rods, fire pit, aqua trampoline. Such a great time we're thinking about doing it every year. Highly recommend it.
