Why Peter Kapsales chose Central - Leatherstocking

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.

Beautiful house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the views of the lake were amazing. Lovely family room with big tv. We stayed three days and did not take advantage of the kayaks, but I can see where they would be so much fun on the lake in the summer! Great location great house!!

Great mini vacation in Cooperstown

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Deer Ridge Lodge in Cooperstown, NY for 2 days to see the Baseball Hall of Fame and other sites in Cooperstown. The house was a perfect fit for the 6 of us. The kitchen is big and clean and has everything you need. The living room is huge with a very comfortable sectional and large television. The house sits on a hill and you need to cross the street to get to the lake (only drawback - be careful crossing the street if you have small children). If it was nicer weather, we would've enjoyed going out on the lake in the complimentary kayaks and canoe. The house is very close to the downtown area, only a few miles drive. We visited the area out of season which is anytime after Labor Day but we enjoyed going to the Hall of Fame, Cooperstown Distillery, Ommegang Brewery and a few good restaurants before leaving the area. I recommend the house if your family is looking for a nice, cozy place to stay that's close to everything.

Good energy in a lovely, lakefront home...

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully inviting spacious home, in a tranquil, peaceful setting. Everything was sparkling, including the view of the water.

All the comforts of home, plus deer in the back-yard, and kayaks in the front! Close to everything you want to do in Cooperstown.

Had a lovely birthday celebration with my family! Everyone wants to come back again!!!!

Property was everything we expected and more. It has a great view and easy access to the lake.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a perfect choice for anyone looking for a lake house on lake otsego. It has great views of the lake and the location is only a few miles from main street Cooperstown. Peter was also great with any questions I had and got back to me very quickly.

Wonderful house on the water!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our stay during Labor Day Weekend. The house was overlooking the beautiful, clear blue lake. So nice for the owner to have the kayaks and canoe for our use as well. It made the trip that much more enjoyable! He even reached out with local events going on during the time of our stay. He was super helpful.

We were a few miles from the center of town but far enough away to experience the quiet and relaxation of the lake.

House was cozy and clean! It had everything we needed throughout the stay. Living room area was big and comfortable for a good movie night. Bring DVDs if you have them!

Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing place to enjoy the water and Cooperstown!

Great stay for our week of baseball in Cooperstown!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Peter, was very helpful. He answered all of our questions within hours, sometimes minutes of our inquiries. The house has amazing views and is a very comfortable living space. Kitchen has everything you need and we only ate out once our entire time there. Plenty of hot water to go around which was nice for our big group. Our son fished every day and the canoe and kayaks were so nice to have. What an amazing lake!! This house is beautifully decorated - the artwork and furniture are gorgeous. It was immaculately clean when we checked in. The deck off the dining area was great to sit on early mornings or and of day. Very peaceful!

We went to Cooperstown Dreams Park every day we were there and it was less than a 20 minute drive there. Only about 10 minutes from the Hall of Fame and down town shopping area. Very conveniently located.

Initially, the property was hard to find because there is no mailbox or house number along the road. Once we knew were it was we didn't have any problems. We did notice a slight smell to the water but we assumed it was because of water shed and being on the lake. The staircase is older and slightly steep. We didn't have any problems at all but something to consider if you are elderly or have trouble with stairs.

We would definitely rent this house again or recommend it to anyone coming to the area. I would absolutely rent something from this owner as he was so great to interact with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The water source for homes is well water from the local water shed and it does sometimes have a slight odor, although completely safe to drink.
