Stayed at the Phoenix Inn for 4 days in June during my son's Dreams Park week. Inn is conveniently located only a mile or two from the Park right off Rte 28, a couple miles from downtown Cooperstown, and down the road for Ommegang Brewery. Room (Liberty) was nice and was able to sleep 3-4 comfortably. Hosts were very nice... More

My friend and I stayed here while visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame and were really happy that we did. Vicki was a friendly hostess (good baker, too!), Jim very affable, and it was a really relaxing stay. Because they have an apartment upstairs we had plenty of privacy, and the nice thing about the suite was that each of... More

The perfect place to stay for my family and I in Cooperstown, just outside of town and the breakfast was fantastic. The inn keepers are fabulous and we really enjoyed our stay. Only wished we could have stayed longer. We took the Adirondack Room (suite) which was perfect for our family of 4. Loved it.

We had an outstanding experience at the Phoenix Inn. Vicki even emailed us before we arrived to let us know that it'd be cold, as we were going to an outdoor concert at Ommegang Brewery. Vicki and Jim also gave us a ride to and from the show, which was really great - they couldn't have been nicer, and we... More

We stayed at the Inn for two nights to attend The Glimmerglass Opera and go to the Baseball Hall of Fame and Fenimore Museum. The innkeepers, Vicki and Jim were very accommodating and friendly. The inn was very clean, comfortable, and a short distance from area attractions. Vicki's breakfasts were absolutely delicious! Definitely a place we would return to!

The Inn is about 2 miles from downtown Cooperstown with lovely rooms and Vicki very accommodating. Breakfast is casual and very, very good. The rooms are lovely with "themes" but not "too cute". Vicki's husband is the Director of the Hall of Fame Library and incredibly knowledgable. We loved it and were sad we only had one day - Cooperstown... More
