Almost every summer, we vacation for a week or so at my family’s lake house in Maine. It’s a 10-12 hour drive, so it can be done in a day, but we usually take two and stop and stay with family along the way. In recent years, we’ve started trying to explore new places en route. It’s awesome to have a familiar place to go on vacation, but I also want our kids to experience new things and see new sites.
This year, we decided to take a detour through Cooperstown, New York. My husband and son are huge baseball fans, so the National Baseball Hall of Fame has been on their bucket list for quite a while. I’m not so much into baseball, but I do love exploring new places, so I immediately took to Trip Advisor to find a cool place to stay.
We looked at several options and batted some ideas back and forth (see what I did there?) In the end, we decided to splurge and stay for a night at The Otesaga Resort Hotel.
The Otesaga is the epitome of luxury travel. It is stately and elegant and spacious and located on the picturesque Lake Otesaga, just a short walk from downtown Cooperstown.
