A Unique Destination
Cooperstown is a wonderful and unique travel destination. The village is set on the nine mile, pristine Otsego Lake, referred to as “Glimmerglass” in James Fenimore Cooper’s The Leatherstocking Tales. A one-stoplight village, the area is a step back in time, with historic buildings, a charming Main Street and quaint bed & breakfasts.
