Winter Getaway Contest 2018 Winner: "Ultimate Luxury"

Winter Getaway Contest 2017 Winner: "Ultimate Luxury"

Marci Miritello from Yorktown, NY is the lucky winner of our 2018 Winter Getaway Contest! She received a luxurious prize package that included a 2-night stay in our lakefront fantasy log home Cayuga Lodge, a shopping and tasting adventure at the historic Fly Creek Cider Mill, a delicious dinner at Mel's at 22, and a tasting flight at Red Shed Brewery.

Here's what Marci had to say about her stay in Cooperstown:
A unique combination of nature’s beauty and ultimate luxury is the best way to describe Cayuga Lodge South.  Photos don’t begin to capture just how magnificent this home truly is.

Immediately upon entering this property we were amazed at the incredible attention to detail.  The open floor plan which includes a top of the line kitchen, made preparing meals part of the entertainment and easily accommodated multiple cooks.  The views through the multiple glass doors are breathtaking as guests enjoy the beautiful scenery and the warmth of the hypnotic fireplaces.

We loved that the master suite was on the top level while the other two bedrooms (each with its own beautiful bathroom) are on the bottom level, separated by the main floor.  This provided the perfect layout for both group and alone time.  The staircases are a work of art.

Sleeping in the master suite bed was like lying on a cloud and the skylights combined with the wood and trees made it feel like we were sleeping outdoors!  The additional bedrooms had a wonderful living area as well with a fireplace and large screen TV.

Covered balconies provide the perfect opportunity to step outside and enjoy that first cup of coffee outside in your pjs. The Boathouse provides yet another entertainment area and a heated pool is located just steps away. Additional activities including board games, movies, novels, and magazines were a pleasant surprise as well.

Bill and Liz have put part of themselves into this home and I believe they have created the perfect getaway.  They go above and beyond to ensure that their guests enjoy their stay and are happy to provide information on local restaurants and attractions.  This is more than a vacation spot, this is a vacation experience.

I’m so grateful that my family had the opportunity to spend time at this incredible Cooperstown Luxury property.

Congratulations again, Marci! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
