A note from the owner

Welcome to 42 Nelson. We have spent many happy days here... you can't get a better street, located seconds from town. Walk to the gorgeous Otesaga Hotel and enjoy dinner by the lake; visit a plethora of fantastic restaurants; and, the Cooperstown Hall of Fame, all within a few minutes, while still off the beaten path. It's the best of both worlds. The neighborhood is well-rounded, with wonderful young families, retired folks... and for those with children, an excellent school system. Enjoy the tour.
