Property Highlights

Down a country lane along the shores of Otsego Lake near Cooperstown, NY is a country home named Wellington. The driveway curves toward the water where this large custom home welcomes guests with arms as wide open as the spaces. On 5 acres with 300 feet of waterfront and 75' dock, our private getaway is great for a large family or group of friends. The lake, the hills, the stars, the moon, the fire flies; guaranteed to take your breath away, and then give it back with room to spare. Ahhhhhhh.

The front door opens into the entry hall, living & dining room with a window wall and 180' view of Otsego Lake. Sunsets light the dining table where there is room for twelve. The home's three bedrooms and four bathrooms easily accommodate a family and their guests. The kitchen, designed by a restaurateur, seats eight at the custom island and features a double oven commercial range. Library, office, side entry hall, dry bar with pantry are all on the first floor. Hardwood floors and a collection of new and antique furnishings fill the home. Two grand fireplaces reflect the promise of cozy evenings in front of a fire. Privacy, setting, the luxury décor all wrapped up in a classic shingle style package.  

Lakeside fire pit, dock for swimming and boating, outside shower, huge covered porch; picture your family settled in where campfire games and playing cards favor screens and phones; where boating and water activities are at the doorstep. Long walks on a country road, biking and hikes in the neighboring Glimmerglass State Park. Family gatherings over home-cooked dinners and evenings by the fire are far more inviting than reservations. Sunrise views to the iconic mountain that is Sleeping Lion and sunsets over Otsego Lake begin and end your day.

Wellington is a special place waiting for you and yours.

While very private, Wellington is fifteen minutes to Cooperstown by car or boat. Work from home with the high-speed internet. Management is a phone call away, and always responsive to your needs.

Guests have the entire property to themselves. The waterfront dock, fire pit, hammock, 2 paddle boards, 2 canoes, access to hiking trails and the large property are all exclusive to our guests staying at Wellington.

Property Manager is just a phone call away.

A very large property with similar properties adjacent, Wellington's lake experience is among a very few on Otsego Lake that offer such extended waterfront. Wonderful for families with kids to enjoy the outdoors away from it all.

Just 10 miles to Cooperstown, NY and a quick ride to the grocery, Farmer's Market, Ice Cream stand and in the Fall or Winter apple picking, leaf peeping, cross country skiing locally and family friendly down hill skiing less than an hour away. Rent a boat, learn to paddle board, kayak and fish; it's all right here. Or bring a book and escape the world, the choice is yours.
