    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.

    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!

    Winter Wonderland Wedding
    The Otesaga Resort is a seasonal hotel, closing after Thanksgiving each year and re-opening in the springtime. This affords us a tremendous opportunity in the winter months to host the most spectacular Wedding Events. Many areas of The Hotel, which are typically unavailable to our social function guests, may be used during this time. For example, cocktails might be served in the graciously appointed Main Lobby, dinner held in the Hotel's Main Dining Room and the wedding ceremony itself may take place in our Ballroom. The options are considerable as is the thrill of having the entire property to yourselves! We are able to accommodate out of town guests at our Cooper Inn property, as well as at several of the year-round Bed and Breakfast operations in the Village. For the ultimate Destination Wedding - we will even re-open the sleeping accommodation portion of our hotel exclusively for your guests, provided we realize more than sixty occupied rooms.

    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.
