Grandpa's Back 40

Located on 40 acres (which is where the name "Grandpa's Back 40" comes from, as Grandpa used to raise sheep on the property), the living room picture window views the horseshoe-shaped pond and beautiful mountains in the background. View wildlife while being only 6/10 mile from Cooperstown Dreams Park. Located 5 miles south of Cooperstown, this home is available from April through December, with weekly rentals available from June 1 through Labor Day (in the off-season, there is a two-night minimum stay). The owners enjoy the house in the off time, but they leave it renter-ready and ask that you leave it as you find it. Each room has been newly updated or renovated. A fishing boat and paddle boat are available for guests' use in the stocked pond.
