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). The room was large and well suited for our needs. The Inn was conveniently located to The Baseball... More

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). The owner was so gracious and helpful I was just this side of stunned. In addition to a great room and a fabulous breakfast, 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.

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!
