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!

We stayed on August 3, 2014 for just one night and have plans to come back again next year for at least two nights already. The Inn was charming with comfortable rooms and pleasant Inn keepers. The breakfast was just amazing and the home baked goods were just icing on the cake. Accommodations were very clean and comfortable. We stayed... More

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

My teenage daughter and I stayed at The Phoenix Inn for two nights while my son was playing at Dreams Field. When I made the reservation, I was really just looking for a clean place to lay our heads after busy days of baseball games. I can tell you that staying here added a real nice element to our trip....

This is a country Inn B&B conveniently located near, but not downtown, Cooperstown. There are 3 rooms and a suite. There is a TV/lounge area with a wood stove, a breakfast room and room in the fridge for any perishables you might have. Vicki is very accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. Her husband is the director of the Hall... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said...Vicki runs a fantastic place! Rooms are clean and comfortable, location is perfect (2 miles from the Hall of Fame but in the middle of nowhere!), and the hosts are kind, helpful, and interesting! Not enough can be said about the breakfast...the norms are there: breads, cereals, fruit, juices...but every day Vicki... More

A simple, clean and well managed b&b. Good proximity to Baseball Hall of Fame and the lake. Comfortable rooms and beds, extremely clean. Vicki, our hostess was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was home cooked crustless quiche and very good. Would definitely recommend it.

My daughter and I stayed at the Inn on the Hall of Fame induction weekend. We really felt at home. Very friendly atmosphere, comfortable rooms and a terrific breakfast every morning. Vicki was able to help us make the most of our visit. If we get back to Cooperstown there is no doubt that we'll stay there again.
