We Give Cobblescote Six Stars out of Five!

Sometimes, we receive a review that just has to be shared!  Thank you to the Hurwitz Family for your beautiful words and images.

Dear Genevieve and family,
Thank you for so wonderfully accommodating us last week at Cobblescote on the Lake. It is a vacation we will always remember as the great accommodations and beautiful surroundings provided an unforgettable foundation for a fun and meaningful time. Most importantly, we are so glad to have met you all. A place to stay is only as special as the people running it. In that case, we give the Cobblescote six stars out of five!
The word “vacation” doesn’t quite describe our experience at Cobblescote. When visiting Cooperstown, we feel connected to the land, the people, Main Street USA and the crystal clear waters — as well as the gentleness of the region that, fortunately, has little compatibility with a harsher world. Just like our experiences in Cooperstown, we felt instantly connected to Cobblescote on the Lake. It’s a feeling that cannot be fully described, only experienced. We are grateful and feel blessed to have experienced a stay at the Cobblescote and can hardly wait to return!


I attached some photos here that I thought you might like. If you have a use for any of these, please feel free to do so.
Thanks so much again and look forward to seeing you soon. God Bless and stay safe and well.
Best regards,
Eric, Joan, Emily and Katie Hurwitz

Some of the ghostly tales are adapted from the Louis C. Jones classic, Things That Go Bump in the Night, a timeless record of haunted history and restless spirits in New York State.
