Had the wedding and reception at the Otesaga. Gordon and his staff were so helpful through the entire planning and actual event. Every time we needed something there was some one there to make sure we got it. They supplied special diet dinneres at the last minute and the set up was perfect- just as requested. My daughter had her dream wedding !!Sent on 09/04/2012

One of the best decisions we made.
Megan and the team at the Otesaga are amazing. First class service and an amazing venue. Our guests loved the hotel too. We can’t wait to go back for years to come.Sent on 04/30/2019

Perfect Wedding Venue!!
We had both the wedding ceremony and the reception at the Otesaga in Cooperstown, and the entire experience was really wonderful from start to finish! All of the staff were so helpful, professional, calm and kind through the entire planning process as well as during the event itself. Every step along the way, from the flurry of nervous emails coming from me in the weeks leading up to the wedding weekend, to the beautiful onsite dressing rooms for the bridal party to get ready in, to the cuing us along during the ceremony, to the fantastic food and fun reception, there was some one there to make sure everything was going exactly as we wanted. Add all of that amazing service to the incredible scenery of the gorgeous lake and the breathtaking venue itself, and we could not have asked for a more perfect wedding! We are forever grateful to the lovely Otesaga and could not more highly recommend it to all engaged couples that are making their wedding plans. We are looking forward to returning to The Otesaga to celebrate our wedding anniversary and will cherish our memories there for years to come!Sent on 12/06/2018
An Beautiful & Very Historic Hotel to celebrate your Wedding Day! I have DJed many Wedding Ceremony's & Reception's here. Love the place!
One of our favorite venues in Upstate NY - the property is gorgeous, the people are great, and our couples always rave about The Otesaga after their wedding.
A great venue. I know many brides that loved getting married there. It is hard work for the florist (lots of long trips back and forth - but that is not a couple's concern) ...but well worth it for the setting and the staff were a pleasure to work with.
