This past weekend we had booked the Carriage House for our Cooperstown experience and we were left in awe of the hospitality and quality of this venue. The owners/operators are top notch. This was hands-down the best stay we have ever had in all of our travels either continental or abroad. The small town charm mixed with the atmosphere of... More

Great people here! The facilities are superb and the staff even better. The Innkeeper, Ed, certainly knows how to make a person feel at home and is a wealth of information about Cooperstown and the surrounding area. His wife, Margie, adds an unexpected degree of charm and hospitality. Josh and Lorie are the nicest, most accommodating operations folks I've found... More

The place was clean and quite comfortable. The host and staff were very friendly. The location to downtown Cooperstown and the lake was unbeatable. However, we had an upstairs room. It was unseasonably warm in Cooperstown for the weekend, and we literally were roasting. We had to run the air conditioner the entire time as it was almost 80 degrees... More

Thank you for your valuable feedback. It was an error on our part for not pointing your thermostat out to you and we wholeheartedly apologize. We’re very sad to hear you didn’t have a pleasant breakfast, as our guests’ experience is of utmost importance here and breakfast is our favorite time of the day. We have breakfast at 8:30 am...

Coming from a specific viewpoint, I think I can best serve this location by writing a review for those who are also coming from my viewpoint. I have stayed in hotel-chain hotels my whole life and I have come to find them serviceable and dependable. I like the service they provide, which is a room and privacy, specifically through anonymity.... More

We had family stay here in their carriage house during the Christmas holiday. It was another great stay with lots of room and wonderful breakfasts. It is just a few blocks South of the Cooperstown main street on 28 It was quiet and wonderful. The owners and their associates have always been wonderful to us and the visiting family.

We were referred by a family member who had stayed here. and made our reservation as soon as we knew we would be traveling to Cooperstown. We were happy to book one night, then realized we were actually lucky, because they were fully booked the next night. So reserve early! This is a B&B so a modest size but decorated... More

The White House Inn is a lovely B&B in Cooperstown, NY. The home, built c. 1865 is very well maintained. The rooms are spotless, the staff friendly and know,edgable. The squeaky king bed adds color to the experience. Main St. is a short walk where you will find shops, restaurants and the Baseball Hall of Fame. Hiking and brewery tours... More

Took my baseball loving (Mets) fiancée to Cooperstown for a birthday weekend. Somehow he hadn't been there before. Staying at the White House Inn was a brilliant decision. First of all, it's a beautiful, cozy home. Ed, the owner, was warm and welcoming. The breakfast was outstanding - homemade (by Ed) waffles and baked French toast. Delicious. Also, it's just... More

The White House Inn is in a great spot in Cooperstown, just a block from Main Street, with its restaurants and shops (the Baseball Hall of Fame is at the far end of Main, within very easy walking distance unless your mobility is limited). Our room, the Birch Room, was very clean, very pretty, not too froufrou or lacy, as... More
