Testimonials


"As a first time renter, I was reluctant to put our family's property in someone else's hands. One year later, we couldn't be happier. Michele operates with care, professionalism, thoughtfulness and is simply a kind person. To choose one word, working with Michele is effortless. She treats every property as though it were her own, interfaces with renters on all issues, and does so timely and effectively. Michele is a gem and highly recommended." Sean S. Greenwich, Connecticut


"Managing a home away from home is never easy. All of the little things that need to be done right are difficult to do from afar, and they quickly build to big things. Helping visitors to the property, ensuring the grounds are clean, taking delivery of packages, being alert to local regulations, managing contractors on work being executed – Lake Lady tackles property management efficiently, professionally and with attention to detail. Hiring Lake Lady was one of our best decisions for the property. The peace of mind gives us time enjoy our favorite getaway again." Marcel K. Ontario


"Michele seamlessly created a lovely experience of choosing our Cooperstown investment home. She showed us multiple prospective properties, helped us negotiate multiple transactions, and provided several projected income/expense prospectus breakdowns before guiding us to our final home. She has suggested excellent home upgrade and maintenance providers, and has been available to meet them at our home in our absence. She has screened prospective long and short term tenants with a discerning and objective mindset. Her hard work, guidance, intuition, and roots in the local community have made for an extremely enjoyable and successful endeavor." Molly B. Shawnee, Kansas


"Michele Barry at Lake Lady Properties is the best! I had actually decided to quit the vacation rentals altogether, and Michele said she could handle it without my need to worry about a thing. I decided to give it another try. That was about four years ago and she has been true to her word. As a property and rental manager she has been amazing. Her attention to details and her personal integrity are qualities I honor and admire. Plus, I really like her. She is so easy to work with." NJS. Cooperstown, NY


"Working with Michele is like having a dream business partner. She helped us get our house ready to rent, handled all of the advertising, and interfaced with the renters. She recommended wonderful and skilled local workers. We couldn’t ask for a better rental manager, neighbor and friend!" Nancy R. Philadelphia, PA


"We had a dream of owning a vacation rental property in Cooperstown, but are out of state 3,000 miles away; our dream became a reality thanks to Michele's Real Estate and Property Management Services. Michele Barry of Lake Lady Property Management Services has been the perfect partner for us as we've entered the world of owning a vacation rental property in the Upstate New York and Cooperstown area. Michele's attention to detail was apparent from the moment we first started communicating. She went above and beyond answering general questions I had, knowing I was not in the market for a realtor at the time. Her knowledge and expertise with the vacation market and process are what sold us on her services. Michele provided us with top tier services on the purchase of our home and again, exceeded our standards, as she prepared and furnished our home since we could not be there to do it on our own. We look forward to working with Michele for years to come as we grow this new venture of ours". P.J. and Kari Mellana - Residents of California, Home Owners in upstate New York.


Reviews from our valued Guests:

Charming, immaculate and an incredible view! My husband and I stayed for three nights with our best friends and their two teenage boys. The house is immaculate and has exactly what anyone would need for a perfect, quiet getaway. Close to town, we were at the Baseball Hall of Fame in no time at all and had lots of great restaurants to choose from. The picture windows in the living room give you an amazing panoramic view of the lake and it's where we sat every morning for coffee. It's all exactly as it's pictured with a terrific fire pit and six chairs, a table on the deck for outdoor dining, everything you need. Michele was lovely and helpful and in touch for every question in short time. Her housekeeper found something that my friend left behind and we received it in the mail just days later. They told us we'd left it before we even knew it was missing! There's a big book for recommended sites and restaurants at the house and everything you need to know is in there. The lake is GORGEOUS and there are chairs and a paddle board and kayak for your use. We ate at The Blue Mingo Grill, which is right on the lake and it was amazing. Great wine list, terrific service, delicious food in a really charming atmosphere. We also had dinner at the Otesaga Hotel and I had a massage there. Both completely worth it. There are no surprises with this rental and we couldn't recommend it more highly. We can't wait to go again

This is a great location, easy to get to Cooperstown! This location is clean and comfortable. Michele has thought of all the little things that make it feel like a home. I loved having my morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake. This was definitely a great place to stay.

Wonderful Lakeside location in Bucolic Cooperstown. We loved our time at Michele's apartment overlooking Lake Otsego. The home was comfortable, the views incredible both night and day and Michele's hospitality was fantastic. The location worked very well for us, as we were in Cooperstown while my son spent the week playing baseball at Cooperstown Dreams Park. The house is 10 minutes from downtown Cooperstown and another 7-8 minutes to Dreams Park - an easy, convenient drive all times of day. The apartment was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed to make our vacation easy and enjoy the wonderful surroundings. I took advantage of the lake and went standup paddleboarding a few times, leaving my gear lakeside on her dock. I highly recommend staying here if you are traveling to Cooperstown.

Very Peaceful, Clean with Exceptional Views!! Stay Here! I would highly recommend this place. Michelle was very helpful in getting us there and setting up the stay with all the information. The place was very clean and exceeded our expectations. We were there for Cooperstown baseball and the drive was pleasant and only 15 min from town. This place is very quite and relaxing with all the amenities you would hope for away from home. Michelle even has a notebook with all the surrounding food and attractions. ( Go eat at NY Pizza ). The deck was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the picture perfect view of the lake which was unbelievable! Others parents on our team were very jealous of our place and view for the week. The landscaping (I believe is done by Michelle was manicured to perfection which added to the the enjoyment of our stay. The online picture does not depict the true justice of the landscaping beauty. Although Michelle was just a doorstep away, we never saw or heard a word, but we felt she was always there to help. Sometimes we were very late coming in from games ( 1 am or later)due to delays from rain, but we always felt safe, and even did not worry about locking the doors when we left. I would highly recommend this Apt. and would stay there again!! Don't pass this place up!!!

The apartment was just as advertised. Very clean and comfortable, well stocked, and a great view of Otsego Lake. It was just a short drive to Main St. and the Hall of Fame. The host, Michele, was extremely helpful and accommodating before and during our stay including good recommendations for eating. We enjoyed our stay. The only draw back was the parking for the apartment was off a very bumpy dirt road and not easily visible from the main road. Besides that, highly recommended.

Over the past 15+ years my husband and I have rented many VRBO sites in several different locations throughout the US, his comment after being at Sunrise Splendor for just a few hours was "this is the best place you have ever found for us." The house is very comfortable/clean and homey but at the same time beautiful with several lovely art pieces and lots of nautical memorabilia, just when you think you've seen everything you discover something else. The setting is beautiful as well, being right across the street from Lake Otsego. We really enjoyed morning coffee and afternoon wine time gazing at the lake and relaxing after long days of exploring. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to create any kind of meal! However if you don't feel like cooking the quaint village of Cooperstown is not far, about 5.5 miles, we enjoyed Mel's 22 for lunch and Alex's Bistro for dinner. We also met fun people and had good drinks at the distillery on Main Street. Michele is a delightful hostess, giving you total privacy but making certain you feel welcome and knowing she is there if you need "anything." We spent a few minutes chatting with her and you instantly feel "at home" in her presence. I will definitely recommend Sunrise Splendor to anyone I know of or hear of who is traveling to the Cooperstown area.

Couldn't ask for a better stay. The cabin was clean, well-decorated and in a great location. Michelle was available when we needed her and very helpful. We really enjoyed the week we spent there.

What a beautiful home, gorgeous views everything that was described was what we had, Michele was amazing! We would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

This was our third trip to Cooperstown and our favorite. The apartment was so clean and comfortable and in a great location. A nice ride to and from the fields and plenty to do when we had downtime from baseball. Michelle was so helpful and a pleasure to meet. Highly recommended!!

An amazing view, convenient location, and a terrific hostess make this a perfect place to stay. Simply put, I could find no faults in my stay. For families traveling to Cooperstown Dreams Park, it a quick 15 minute drive away. Close enough to not be a hassle but secluded enough to be a sanctuary for you and the family.

We rent a lot of vacation homes, but this property is the most welcoming and has the most beautiful view we have seen. Michele gave us a warm welcome and was so helpful with any questions we had on the area. The house was immaculately clean and well stocked, and we were fascinated by the decor and collectables. We enjoyed the lake view from our private deck. Definitely would recommend this property for those wanting a peaceful retreat in beautiful New York. It is a short and scenic drive to the Cooperstown Dreams Park.
