We stayed here while in Cooperstown for a weekend getaway to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. They were extremely helpful and understanding when we arrived in town later than expected the first night. We had a great time chatting with the other guests each morning over breakfast. The location is only a... More

We wanted a quiet, cozy couple of days away from the routine; and we had been talking about visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame. So we decided to do both and neither was a disappointment. Phoenix House was everything we wanted whenever we stay at a B&B. It is an old inn, beautifully maintained and decorated. Vicki and Jim, our... More

This lovely historic inn was a great first B&B experience for our 2 teenage sons. We stayed in the Adirondack 2 bedroom suite which was spacious and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed hearing about the history of the inn from Vicki & Jim. While eating the delicious breakfasts we found a pleasant opportunity to chat with Vicki and another guest staying...

What a great find! We had a very pleasant 2-night stay at the Phoenix Inn. Vicki was a delightful hostess who offered a great breakfast - especially the hot dishes (baked blueberry French Toast and the eggs and cheese casserole - Yumm).

Recently a friend and I went to hear Bonnie Raitt at Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown, NY. I called the Phoenix and booked a twin room for the night (book early as the rooms go quickly).

We are repeat clients and happy to be so. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Sitting around the breakfast table with other visitors is a treat. The Inn is close to Cooperstown and Glimmerglass Opera, as well as some of the nearby breweries and (on the right weekend) sheepdog trials.

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.
