Frequently Asked Questions
Care to Share? Occasionally, two families ask if they might share one of our larger units. We have no objections, but please discuss it with us, since there may be considerations you are not aware of – such things as comparative lack of privacy, who gets the bathroom first, and who might wind up in a sofa bed.
Linen Service: Your cottage or townhouse will be clean and made-up with fresh linens and towels when you arrive. Since we do not provide a daily maid service during your stay, clean towels, soap, etc. are available in the office as often as needed. We do ask you to bring your own pool towels.
Can I bring my pet? Pets are welcome but must be under control. Pets may not run loose, and you must clean up after them. Dogs that bark at every noise may not be left here while you go away for the day. The charge for pets is $12/day or $75/week. Pets staying in the townhouses/apartments cannot exceed 20 pounds. No weight restriction on pets staying in the cottages. We do not accept the following breeds: Chow Chow, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, Pit Bull, Akita and Rottweiler.
Off-season Info: In September and October we are surrounded by some of the most spectacular fall foliage in the Northeast. Area attractions like the Baseball Hall of Fame, Farmers Museum, Fly Creek Cidermill and Howes Caverns are all close by and open year round. Small and large game hunting seasons run from early October into December, and game is plentiful. The pool opens Memorial Day Weekend and closes right after Labor Day Weekend. The game room is open year round.
Address & Phone Number: If you have called other Cooperstown area phone numbers, you may have noticed that they have a “607” area code, and our local number is “315”. Someone has to live on the boundary line that is drawn, and when Ma Bell drew hers between the “607” and “315” areas, it actually divided our property. We explain this because we’ve heard skepticism from travelers who can’t believe we are actually closer to Cooperstown than most of the localities which share its area code. Mail routes are equally deceptive. We are 8 miles from Richfield Springs, in whose route we fall, and 9 miles from Cooperstown, where we maintain a post office box. Mail reaches us at either address, but use the Richfield Springs address (201 Rose’s Hill Road, Richfield Springs, New York 13439) if you want something sent to you during your stay.
