Directions

From the Southeast

Your GPS or other service may give you alternate directions. You will still get here, but we prefer the following route:

Take I-87 North to Albany and take I-90 /Buffalo. From I-90, take exit 25A, to I-88.

Stay on I-88 for about five miles and take the Duanesburg exit. Turn left off the exit ramp and then turn right onto Route 20. Go west on Route 20 for 51 miles. Please respect the speed limits in the towns along the way. It can be costly otherwise. You’ll probably lose cell service on this stretch, too. Welcome to the country.

At the Route 80/Route 20 intersection, turn left and head south on Route 80, through Springfield Center,  for ten miles. Route 80 follows the length of Otsego Lake and is a beautiful drive, passing the Glimmerglass Opera House, golf courses, and museums.  Route 80 leads directly into Cooperstown where it is called Lake Street. Otsego Lake is on your left. Westridge Road is the first street past the green “Village of Cooperstown” sign. Turn right up Westridge and bear to the LEFT where the road forks. The left fork is our driveway.

Alternate route: From I-87 take Thruway Exit 21, to State Highway 23 west, then I-88 east. Take Exit 17, turning onto State Highway 28, north to Cooperstown. Stay on this road (Chestnut Street) through Cooperstown until it ends at Lake Street (Route 80.) Turn left onto Lake and stay on it for three short blocks, then turn left onto Westridge. Bear to the LEFT at the fork.

From Albany

It is easiest to reach us via Route 20. However, if you are going to Howe Caverns, once exiting I-90, stay on I-88 toward Oneonta and take Exit 22. Howe Caverns is clearly marked.

From the Albany International Airport

Turn left out of the airport onto Albany/Shaker Road. Drive straight for about two miles and stay in the right lane. Just after the Desmond Hotel you’ll exit onto  I-87 North to Albany. Follow the road signs to  I-90 /Buffalo. From I-90, take exit 25A, to I-88.

Stay on I-88 for about five miles and take the Duanesburg exit. Turn left off the exit ramp and then turn right onto Route 20. Go west on Route 20 for 51 miles. Please respect the speed limits in the towns along the way. It can be costly otherwise. You’ll probably lose cell service on this stretch, too. Welcome to the country.

From the West

Travel east on I-90 and take exit 30 at Herkimer. Once through the toll booth, straight across the street is Gems Along the Mohawk, a great stop for bathrooms, shopping, dining, and Erie Canal Cruises. Head south on Route 28 through Mohawk and Richfield Springs. passing Canadarago Lake. This will take you directly into Cooperstown. Turn left onto Chestnut Street and follow it through our only traffic light to where it ends at Lake Road. Turn left onto Lake and stay on it for three blocks, passing Pine and Nelson, then turn left onto Westridge Road. Look up and you will see our house immediately. Turn LEFT where the road forks, onto our drive.

Alternate directions:For another scenic drive, you can drop south from I-90 to State Route 20. It runs parallel to I-90 through some beautiful small towns. Cazenovia and Skaneateles are especially pretty.  Route 20 intersects with Route 28 in Richfield Springs, from which you would follow the same directions to Bryn Brooke Manor.

From Binghamton

Take I-88 toward Oneonta. Exit at exit 17 and take Route 28 north to Cooperstown. Stay on Route 28 for 17 miles through the village. Within Cooperstown, Route 28 is called Chestnut Street. Follow Chestnut to where it ends at Lake Street and turn left. Pass Pine Boulevard, Nelson Avenue and the third left is Westridge Road, just beyond the Otesaga Hotel on your right. Turn left onto Westridge and continue to veer left where the road forks. The left fork is our drive.
