Sleeps 9 • Bedrooms: 3 • Bathrooms: 3 • Property type: Chateau/Country House with Wedding Barn

Located 1/2 mile outside Historic Cherry Valley you will enjoy the convenience of the short drive to Cooperstown, the Glimmerglass Opera, 4 different golf courses, antique shops and more. Walk less then 1/2 mile to Rose & Kettle restaurant for your first meal. There is always the possibility you will never want to leave the property.

Tuscarora has an elegant charm that makes you never want to leave the property, but if you choose to venture out, it is only a short drive to adventure on Otsego Lake and historic Cooperstown, New York.

Our 1869 Italianate Victorian home is a hillside farm of 141 acres. We are 9 miles from Alice Bush Glimmerglass Opera, Otsego Lake, and about a 15 minute drive to downtown Cooperstown.

All one needs to do is walk out the door at Tuscarora and you have started a journey. There are 141 acres of beautiful rolling hills and farmland or you can walk the miles of trails located only a short distance from the farm. Sail or fish in Otsego Lake…you may be treated to a big trout or large mouth bass. You could swim and fish in our own Paradise Pond, go for a bicycle ride, jog or just read a book and relax.

What our guest have to say!

Family and fishing-friendly retreat

Tuscarora is close enough to Cooperstown Dream Park, but far enough away to feel like a true vacation destination. Our entire extended family stayed there and Greg Noonan was an amazing host to us all…he was full of local insight – which was much appreciated! We rented a pontoon boat at a nearby marina and caught some of the biggest largemouth and smallmouth bass I have ever seen. Lake Ostego provides a beautiful and scenic backdrop with eagles flying about. This property is a great value for access to the lake and close proximity to town.

Get away from the Dream Park madness for some peace and quiet

We were in Cooperstown for the Dream Park tournament. Tuscarora lived up to all our expectations. The views were fantastic and it was a great place to wind down and relax away from all the craziness of the tournament and downtown Cooperstown. Greg Noonan did everything he could to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. While it is a short drive to downtown and Dream Park, we very much enjoyed the ability to find some peace and quiet away from all the commotion.

Planning another trip to Cooperstown and Tuscarora

Wow! It’s always a risk to rent a house sight unseen. We hit gold with staying at Tuscarora! It was perfect. The views were stunning and a perfect distance from downtown and Dream Park. The owner was incredible friendly, gracious and very accommodating. The house suited our needs perfectly. We will definitely be returning. Thanks to Greg Noonan…we’ll see you when we return for our next son’s baseball tournament!
