This is a great setting right in Cooperstown. There is a boat ride which is a nice outing. We sat in a small park and watched the sun set.

We did not stay at the hotel. Only went for a spa treatment. Afterwards , my friend and I sat on rocking chairs admiring the golf course overlooking the lake. The hotel is very stately and the grounds are beautiful !
