Venue Feature: The Otesaga Hotel

Cooperstown and Central New York are a gorgeous location for weddings! You may not know much about the area, but we have to tell you about the amazing Otesaga Hotel! Not only is the property set in a beautiful location, it has been a historic hotel for over a century!  Everyone thinks of Cooperstown as baseball, but it’s a historic city and has so much more to offer.  Between water sports and golfing, there’s so much to see and do, and you can do a lot of it at the Otesaga.

Overlooking the “glimmerglass” of Lake Otesaga and the Leatherstocking Golf Course, the Otesaga is a perfect backdrop for weddings!

The East Lawn of The Hotel is a wonderful location for a wedding ceremony, accommodating up to 200 guests. The bridal couple will be framed by century-old oaks, steps from the lake, against a backdrop of tree-clad hills. Pre-Dinner Receptions enjoy a similar spectacular view from our partially covered veranda.

The Grand Ballroom will comfortably hold up to 180 guests for a sit-down dinner, allowing ample room for your head table, entertainment, and dance floor. It is lined with lattice-work panels and Doric columns. It boasts 20-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers, 15-foot windows on three sides, and pre-Raphaelite murals original to the structure from 1910.

What an amazing property, just check out these photos to get a better idea!
