We had a very pleasant 4-day stay at the Phoenix Inn. Vicki was a delightful and accommodating hostess who catered to all of our needs. Her breakfasts were excellent- especially the homemade baked goods and hot dishes(baked French Toast, eggs and cheese casseroles etc.). The room was large and comfortable and the Inn is conveniently located for visits to The... More

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. 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!
