The Otesaga
Resort

Many years ago the land on the southern shores of Lake Otsego in central upstate New York was known as O-te-sa-ga, Iroquois for 'place of meeting', and this remarkable resort is truly the perfect meeting place for your family's Passover vacation. A magnificent Federal-style structure occupying 700 feet of lakefront Lake Otsego, the Otesaga is a landmark of gracious hospitality within an inspiring lakeside setting.

The Otesaga blends perfectly with the Village of Cooperstown, ( of baseball fame!) a culturally rich repository of Americana combining natural beauty with an unhurried pace. Founded in 1786 by Wlliam Cooper, father of American novelist James Fenimore Cooper, Cooperstown offers sophisticated one-of-a-kind attractions with a big helping of small-town charm.

Voted one of the top 50 golf resorts in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler, with an 18 hole par 72 championship Leatherstocking Golf Couse rated 4 1/2 stars by Golf Digest, The Otesaga offers numerous indoor, outdoor, and on-the-lake recreational activities. Our guests can additionally enjoy complimentary passes to Clark's Sports Center, with its indoor lap and diving pools, basketball and racquetball courts, indoor running track, rock climbing wall, high ropes course, skeet shooting, and eight lane Brunswick bowling.

A new, unparalleled location for a Passover holiday only 3 hours from midtown Manhattan, the Otesaga is sure to impress the most experienced of Passover Hotel guests.
