We just happened by here. The view was beautiful. It was worth a quick stop. We only walked the grounds but did not go in. We did speak with a staff person who gave us good information on the property and the surrounding area.

I have played several concerts at this venue and always found it an ideal space. It is not Buckingham Palace, but nonetheless an intriguing window onto the past.

A wonderful place to visit just outside of Cooperstown. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and interesting and they have tons of information about the house and it's history. Incredible views of the lake and surrounding area

This was the best house tour I've been on. A 19th Century grand mansion sits above Otsego Lake. A house fallen on hard times is being restored by a devoted group. The tour was informed and fun.
