Distinctive & Notable



Located along over 700 feet of Lake Otsego shoreline, The Otesaga Hotel opened its luxurious doors for the first time on July 12, 1909. Of its beauty, a local newspaper wrote: “No more fortunate location could have been chosen for a hotel. From its windows and broad veranda, a view as charming as the Divine Hand ever painted fills the eye.” Today, this seasonal resort exudes elegance in its signature Georgian Revival details, a stately wood-columned portico, and dome-capped cupola. The Otesaga (Iroquois for “a place of meetings”) and its Leatherstocking Golf Course have drawn visitors for generations.
