About William Miller
Liz and I have been welcoming guests to our Cooperstown vacation retreats for 15 years. We believe a well maintained and spotlessly clean home is just a small component of a great vacation. It happens everywhere, the average rental owner and the large rental brokers just can't provide the level of customer service you need; telephone calls go to voicemail... emails ignored...questions are unanswered and problems go unresolved. Our philosophy; Great Vacation Experiences Begin And End With Great Customer Service. For this reason, we limit the number of homes we manage to ensure our ability to provide the best customer service possible. Our goal is to leverage a lifetime of intimate knowledge of the Cooperstown area to enable our guests to experience all that Cooperstown has to offer... we are "locals" providing visitors with inside information to enhance their time in our special region. We are standing by, ready to help you. Safe travels, Liz and Bill
William Miller purchased this Lodge in 2000
Why William Miller chose Cooperstown
Otsego Lake is 9 miles long and very much under-utilized. Having grown up on the lake, when the opportunity came along to purchase vacant land we jumped at the chance because so much of the shoreline is forever protected there simply are very few parcels available.
What makes this Lodge unique
Regardless of the season, The Treehouse provides for a Great Escape. During the winter when the snow blankets the land and the ice on the lake is 18' think, the fireplace adds to a warm and comfy environment. Summer days are spent canoeing, sailing, fishing or power boating on a lake that at times is so uncrowded it feels like your own! And in the fall, the thickly wooded hillsides surrounding the lake turn bright with color and is a great time to hike the trails.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Not just a baseball experience, but a family vacation. Close enough to all the activities but with a country feel.
Wow! What an incredible property!
We had such an unbelievable weekend st The Treehouse! I would highly recommend this gorgeous house for any type of special gathering. Stunning property!
Amazing getaway spot with even better views!!
We rented this home for a relaxation bachelorette party! It was perfect! We had a personal yoga session followed by massages and a private chef all while surrounded by perfect views and the most beautiful nature! Bill made a beautiful personal video for the bride that she will be able to cherish forever! From the amazing fire places to the beautiful slab wood dining table this place is breathtaking!
Very happy the ladies enjoyed their celebration of Amanda’s upcoming marriage. We hope to see some of you for a return getaway...perhaps during the warmer months when you can swim in the lake instead of walking on it!
Perfect lakefront retreat in a stunning home
Eight of my girlfriends and I stayed at The Treehouse for a long weekend in March. The home is spacious and absolutely stunning, inside and out. It's just a 10 minute drive to Main Street Cooperstown, yet far enough away that you have complete privacy. The amenities are a plenty, right down to different coffee makers to suit your needs. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need to cook, if you were looking to save money.
It's westward-facing lakefront location makes for breathtaking sunsets and because it's right on the lake, the whole family could fish or swim right from the rental property without having to travel to a park. There's an outdoor fire pit and they keep the property stocked with fire wood. It has a mountain lodge atmosphere that's great for a week-long retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Check-in/check-out is easy and convenient. The host, Bill, was extremely responsive and even sent the property manager over to make sure we had everything we needed to start the indoor fireplace.
I would highly recommend staying at The Treehouse - Cooperstown Luxury at its finest.
A Memorable and Wonderful Family Getaway
Two weeks ago our family of 15 (ages 11 - 79) were enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the lovely and spacious Treehouse log home as well as the next door cozy lakeside cottage, The Birds Nest! The adults as well as the children thoroughly enjoyed hanging out in The Treehouse cozy and comfy living room chairs and couches in front of the lighted fireplace! It was a most wonderful and memorable stay where we could all relax in such a peaceful and serene setting! The home is immaculate and beautifully maintained with a well equipped kitchen where a number of us were able to prepare a meal at the same time. In the early mornings, some of the gals would drink their coffee on the front deck where they watched the loons flying over the lake. The kids had a great time playing foosball as well as a number of the games that were provided? Everyone loved the house, the private and wooded property far away from any traffic noise, and just the beauty and serenity of staying in such a wonderful and tranquil setting!
Hi Mary Lou and Family!
Your review is very much appreciated and Liz and I are very happy your family enjoyed our home as much as does ours! We too, love gathering in the great room with the fire blazing, soft music playing as background to conversation! And the sound of the loons... the occasional Bald Eagle fly-overs, the honking geese...We welcome you back any time. Thanks for being great guests! Liz and Bill
Our best VRBO experience ever!
This is a rare find, a beautifully maintained luxury home on a private lot with spectacular views of lake and hillside. The house is gorgeous and immaculate, superbly equipped, and comfortable in every way. We enjoyed the gas grill, firewood, games, movies and the large kitchen which has all the cookware and dinnerware you'd need to make and serve meals for a crowd. The homeowners are a dream to work with--extremely responsive and accommodating. We felt they truly were interested in our rental experience at their home and in the lovely town of Cooperstown. We are frequent users of VRBO and this rental has been the best experience yet. Thanks, Bill and Liz for all you did.
Aww, thank you for your kind words, Molly! Our goal is to provide the best Cooperstown experience possible for our guests and we are always delighted when we succeed:)
You and your friends were a dream to host and we look forward to your return!
