Cost: Rooms begin at $289, suites $379.    

Drive time: 4 hours, 15 minutes.

The scoop: This 15-room converted manor house is decorated in the style of the early 19th century with museum-quality art. The surrounding downtown area is filled with boutiques and dining spots. 

Amenities: Continental breakfast is included. Guests have access to recreational facilities at the nearby Otesaga Resort Hotel, including swimming in its Olympic-size pool, fishing and canoeing on Lake Otsego, golfing at Leatherstocking Golf Course, and more.

Don’t miss: Best known as the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Doubleday Field, Cooperstown has a lot more to offer visitors—especially during the summer, when it hosts thousands for a two-month-long opera event. Throughout July and August, the Glimmerglass Festival presents beloved, rarely staged and original operas in an open-air theater on the shores of Lake Otsego. Pre-order a gourmet picnic, or create your own with purchases from the on-site vendors.
