Paradise Island Guests Wrote:

Our stay at Paradise Island was fantastic. The house was clean and as advertised. Plenty of room for our party of 8. The views were spectacular! The kids loved playing on the swimming raft and fishing in the pond. And the stars at night were beyond! Would definitely stay here again if we ever came back to the area.
[Kurtz Family – July 2019}


Paradise Island Guests Wrote:

We rented the Paradise Island property in Otego. The house was perfect for our large family. It is a beautiful and serene property and the house was big and spacious. Everyone enjoyed the private, comfortable rooms. The kids loved the game room and we all spent hours fishing in the pond. It was also a great location and short distance to All Star Village which was helpful since we did that drive 4 times a days. I would recommend this house to anyone visiting the area.
[LM Diego – July 2019}

Paradise Island Guests Wrote:

We just stayed at Paradise Island and truly enjoyed our stay! The house was extremely clean and big enough for 2 families to share. The views from the house are absolutely beautiful!! The owners were also very kind and accommodating. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay there. It was about a 10 minute drive from Cooperstown Allstar Village.

All’s Fun Guests Wrote:

Jim, Thank you for opening your home to our families.  Easy trip to ballpark – I picked blueberries and we all enjoyed them.  Ty (8 yr. old) was totally amazed with coy fish.  Canoe ride was enjoyed by boys.  We stocked up on Cheerios but he used them up.  Your house and property are amazing.  Lots of conversations over your collections.  We talked highly to others about your home.  We will be sure to pass on to future players parents.   Our week here in Cooperstown was a great time. [August 2018 – From the Spears and Rovito Families]

This has been the best time that we’ve had in a long time.  Thank you for all the ATV rides, being so friendly and working so hard to make our stay the best!  Will see you in 4 years for another Cooperstown experience.  Thanks, Jim, for being such a fine host!  [July 2016 – The Johnson’s, St. Charles, IL]

Malibu Lake House Guests Wrote:

We stayed at the Malibu house during the last week of July. The pride the family takes in their home and property is obvious, and warrented. We are a family of five; our three children were absolutely thrilled when we arrived at the property. The home is well taken care of and clean. The owners were mindful of our needs as a family and offered advice on restaurants and nearby grocery stores. They also made themselves readily available in any instance that we may have needed them. Our family spent much time at the lake fishing, swimming, kayaking, and paddle boating. I was so happy to have given the experience to my daughters while their brother was with his team… our stay was an experience and vacation rather than tournament stay. As for the drive, it wasn’t bad at all, and to be honest, quite offset by knowing what we were returning to at the end of the day. We would definitely recommend this house for your stay.           HMELO [July, 2018]

Catskill Escape Guests Wrote:

Thanks for a great week.  It is absolutely gorgeous here.  Post Road made a great 3 mile run for my daughter and myself – challenging but worth it.  We didn’t get to the pond since baseball games kept us busy at All Star Village, but it is beautiful!           The Rathmanns, Mt. Airy, Maryland [Week of August 17, 2018]

Catskill Escape Guests Wrote:

We were extremely blessed to have found this house to say in while my son played baseball at All Star Village.  What a beautiful home and we absolutely appreciated the cozy bedding.  We enjoyed the lake and my boys were fascinated with looking for the beaver.  The fireflies were an added bonus.  Overall this was a favorite family vacation.  Much appreciation.

The Young Family [6/22/18]

Catskill Escape Guests Wrote:

This trip and house has been amazing!  Our team took over the HR Cooperstown record for this summer at 57!!  We took 2nd place in the Final Championship Game. We enjoyed the scenery, fireflies, deer, the beaver and of course the lake!   The Beltowski and Sidell Families, Ventura and West Hills, California [Week of July 22, 2018]

Paradise Island Guests Wrote:

Paradise Island, the homeowner’s are very pleasant and accommodating. Feels like a home away from home. Spotless. Plently of room for a large family. I would highly recommend Paradise Island.           C. [10/5/18]

Paradise Island Guests Wrote:

The Paradise Island home was wonderful and a perfect location to Cooperstown All Star Village. A few families shared the home while our boys played at Cooperstown and highly recommend the home. Morning coffee and breakfast on the deck overlooking the ponds, kids fishing in the pond before heading to the baseball fields, and nature walks. We even spotted a few deer early in the morning. We will definitely be telling next year’s team to reserve this gorgeous home.           H. [8/01/18]

Paradise Island Guests Wrote:

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. This Cooperstown baseball trip is going to be one of our best memories and amazing experiences. So awesome and unforgettable!! We had an enjoyable, comfortable & relaxing stay at your air conditioning cabin. Your property is so beautiful. It is breathtaking. To have coffee in the morning and to look out at all the greeneries, it was so peaceful. The cabin is conveniently close to the All Star Village, to the General Store, and to Sprinkles ice cream store, which we went almost everyday. Our little ones hung out in the playroom downstairs while the adults cooked or hung out in the main rooms upstairs. The beds were comfortable, showers were great, towels were plentiful, and the laundry room was convenient. In addition, Julie and Joe were great and very helpful. Southern California Families [6/29/18-7/6/18]

Triple Play Guests Wrote:

Loved the house! Very clean and easy access to Hwy. kids loved the pool. Could provide a few more pots/pans, cookie sheets, bakeware, etc. in order to cook for 8-10 people. I would definitely stay here again if I’m ever up that way again!  The Fuller Family [July 2018]

Paradise Island Guests Wrote:

We would recommend your house to other families coming into the area.  We appreciate you supplying a high chair and pack & play.  We used them both.  My kids loved the pool table and air hockey.  The house was clean and well-stocked with all the items we forget and might need.  The property is beautiful!  Thank you for exceeding our expectations.    The Demont Family [June 2018]

Garden Room at Arnold Lake Guest Wrote:

The Garden Room at Arnold lake is the perfect place to stay for a relaxing, quiet Cooperstown experience. The room was perfect and had everything we needed. It is a country retreat and only 5 miles from Dreams Park. Very convenient location. Tammie and Leon, thanks for sharing your home with us for a wonderful week. June 1,2018. Couldn’t have asked for anything better. Super comfortable and cosy!!  Jodi Scobey [June 2018]

Paradise Island Guests wrote:

Hi, Thank you for allowing us to live in your house!  We ALL had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities and accommodations of the house.  I will definitely give a few of our friends your info for next years tournaments as we have several friends attending, just not sure what park they will be attending. We had a FABULOUS time, it took about 12 minutes to get to the park.    It was GREAT!   The bedding was perfect, beds were comfy, the down stairs was super cool and great place to hide kids or have Grandma have privacy!  The kids played all day outside, or whenever we were there!

THANK YOU again, we made memories that will last FOREVER!  Kim (California)

Malibu Lake House Guests wrote:

We stayed at the Malibu Lake House from July 22 through July 29, 2016. We couldn’t have been happier with the accommodations and friendliness of the owners. Zoe made us feel right at home in her house. There was not one thing that she didn’t think of, right down to fresh bait for the kids and dads to fish with. The house was so comfortable and the views of the lake were beautiful. I only wish that we would have had more time to spend on the lake using the canoe and paddle boat. I highly recommend the Malibu Lake House for a relaxing stay by the lake.

Catskills Escape Guests wrote:

What a beautiful home! We weren’t able to spend as much time as we would have liked, but our boys had a great time canoeing in the pond and walking around the land. It is so beautiful and peaceful. we were able to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame museum and Doubleday Field. Most of our time was spent at Cooperstown Dreams Park watching our boys play some great baseball. Many great memories were made here. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Randy & Kasha,
Thank you for sharing your country home with use. It was as perfect as I imagined it would be. After being at the ball fields all day, we enjoyed relaxing on the porch watching the fireflies.
With love from California,

Catskills Escape Guests wrote:

We LOVED your house. It was more perfect than I could have imagined. My mom even got teary eyes when we left. We have been to Cooperstown 3 times, and your house was our favorite. Thank you for sharing with us.

Song Brook:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Song Brook. It’s a very spacious studio. The included amenities made it feel like we were at home. And, the proximity to All-Star Village, as well as to places to shop and eat, were extremely appreciated. The owners were also readily available and very accommodating. Choosing Song Brook was one of the best decisions we made for our trip to All-Star Village.

The property was beautiful and we did so enjoy it! It was incredibly serene and peaceful. Sadly the blueberries were not quite ripe but someone will enjoy them in a few weeks time.

Thanks for our home away from home for a great baseball adventure!

Many thanks,

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home! The kids loved playing outside and at the pond. They loved all the “critters” around, especially the fireflies at night! Absolutely magical!

Fabulous home! We enjoyed our stay! Very comfortable, relaxing stay. Grounds are beautiful. Enjoyed running thru the mountains. Kids enjoyed exploring the pond – fields! Thank you! It was a trip we will never forget and your house was perfect for our needs then. Please feel free to share our comments as they were very sincere. Hopefully they will lead to more people staying there.

Catskills Escape Guests wrote:

Beautifully restored country manor. The craftsmanship that went into this house is amazing. When you think of the distance to any lumberyard in relation to where this home sits…we will all have these memories forever. Thanks for the experience.
​We loved the property and only wished we could have been there more to enjoy it.​

Catskills Escape Guests wrote:

We enjoyed our stay at your beautiful country house. What a lovely home on a beautiful piece of property. Our 2 families loved our stay and would recommend to all of our friends coming for baseball. Thank you for your hospitality and for keeping your home so beautiful.

Thank you for the wonderful family memories – due in part to your lovely farm home and lake. The surroundings are breathtaking. It is the quintessential rural retreat. We enjoyed relaxing in Franklin after an intense Cooperstown All-Star Village baseball experience.

We loved our time at Home Plate; we stayed there the week of July 18 – 25th[2014] while our son played in the Cooperstown tournament. The accommodations were clean and the owner who stays on site was friendly and easy to work with. We would highly recommend this property to anyone!

“We had a magical time in Cooperstown All Star Village & your home was a great place for home base. At first it felt very rural, however once we got use to the roads it was a wonderful place to sit and relax. We took advantage of the canoe on the pond, and the star gazing was amazing at night. The home was so lovely, peaceful, and amazingly stylish and comfortable. It was a treat to stay there.”

Catskills Escape Guests wrote:

Hi Randy!
We loved your beautiful property and had the best time. We were sad to leave the beautiful country! We enjoyed the lake and sitting outside watching the lightning bugs. I could easily live there ( but maybe not in the winter!) Your antique furnishings are exquisite. We will highly recommend your house to anyone wanting to go to Cooperstown or just a visit in upstate.
Take care and thank you again!

Dear Betty,
You have been such a warm and gracious host. It is incredibel how you can maintain that with all you have been through due to the floods. Thanks for everything! We had a blast. Made it to the top 16, ranked 11th. Wish we had more time to relax in your place. This area has so much history.

Hi Donna,
I just wanted relay to you the great stay we had at Catskill’s Escape in July. Although our baseball schedule kept us busy at the field, our times at the house were great. Our room was so comfortable we didn’t want to leave. The setting was very pretty and made a week of baseball almost feel like a vacation!
Thanks for all you help and enjoy the rest of the summer.


Catskills Escape Guests wrote:

Hi Donna,
Just wanted to express how much our family enjoyed our stay in Cooperstown. I’m so glad we decided to stay at the Catskills Escape, it’s definitely worth the extra drive! We look forward to another visit when my younger sons team makes a trip to Cooperstown.

Sincerely, The Wentworth family

Bloomfield Guests wrote:

We recently returned from Cooperstown and I wanted to let you know how wonderful Betty O’Dell was to us. The road to Duck Away was flooded, so she offered a larger house for the same price. It was very comfortable and we were the envy of the other team parents, who were dealing with smells, mold, no A/C, and intrusive landlords. It was a wonderful refuge after our long, hot days at the fields. We heard such stories about other properties. One where the landlord wouldn’t allow the kids on the grass in the backyard, and another who kept inviting himself to dinner! Betty went out of her way to make the house comfortable, providing extras that we may have forgotten. She’s a very nice lady. I hope her flooding has abated. I felt bad for her having to deal with it.

Sincerely, Lisa Mincher

Hi Ellen,
We just returned last night back to Illinois and I wanted to say thank you so much for letting us stay at your home. I absolutely loved it – especially the backyard and the creek. We have a home up north in Wisconsin and it felt like we were there in the morning with the birds chirping and all the trees with the creek running. I had an amazing stay and was so sad when we had to leave. I will cherish the time I had there with my husband and children. We left a note in your memory book on the table in the living room. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart you have no idea how much I needed this vacation time!

Hi Leon and Tammy,
We want to thank you again for a lovely stay in Cooperstown. Your loft was just perfect for us. We were so close to the Dream Parks and yet so far away in terms of your place being so tranquil, much needed after a busy day of baseball and exploring the area. We also very much appreciated how clean, cool and well-lit at night you keep the Loft! And on the one evening when we used your grill, which worked great by the way, you made us feel quite special and at home by sharing your gingham tablecloth for our dinner. Thank you again for helping to make our Cooperstown vacation so special.

Our family had the time of their life in Cooperstown. My mother-in-law never watched baseball until this week. Now she is hooked. We stayed at the Wheel house. It is such a cute place with so much charm. We felt right at home. The owners, Susan and Ed were very helpful with information about the area. New Yorkers are such friendly people. Thank you for making our vacation so memorable.
We would like to thank Donna for going the extra mile in making things right for our stay. We had a problem with our apartment, and our stay could have been a downright nightmare. However, Donna did everything she could to help us out and made our stay very pleasant. To make a long story short, Donna runs an excellent business to say the least. She is an absolute asset to the Cooperstown area.
Since she showed us that she runs such a great business and truly takes care of her customers, I am now recommending her for our team this year and several years to come.

Thank you so much!

Malibu Lake House Guests wrote:

Wanted to send a message to let anybody interested in renting “The Malibu Lake House” know what a wonderful place it really is. Our family spent the week of July 4th there this past year to play at The All-Star Village and it was an experience of a lifetime. Beautiful home, beautiful location, and so very relaxing. My sons will never forget the fishing that we had there on the lake and my wife and I can never forget the serene tranquility of the location. We cannot wait to have my 5 year old grow old enough to play a Cooperstown tournament to get back to the Malibu Lake House! Best trip we ever had, thank you at Cooperstown Lodging as well as the owner of the home for her kindness and generosity. As far as we’re concerned we would consider no other place to stay and no other booking agent to help us. The house was such a nice place it almost overshadows that the boys (SGV Cobras from California) played well enough during the week to make it all the way to the championship game, and finish runners up.

I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip to Oneonta and Benson’s Overlook. The house was AWESOME! Being from California, We have never got to experience “lighting bugs” other than playing in Cooperstown Dreams Park I’d have to say that was our fondest memory! Don, (The Owner) was over accommodating. We know he went through allot before we got there with all the floods, and we appreciate everything he did to make us feel welcome in his home! I hope to get to return to Benson’s overlook again someday, we really really enjoyed it there! Thanks again for everything!

Hi Donna,
I just wanted to let you know that we were really pleased with the Doubleday house apartment! It exceeded our expectations. The owners were great and greeted us with treats and warmth. I’m so glad you recommended this apartment for us. I will certainly recommend your services, and this apartment, to everyone I know that will be visiting in the future. Our friends who chose to rent a house together were very disappointed with their accommodations. They didn’t use your services, unfortunately for them. They were quite jealous when they came to view our place!
