It is important for travelers who are less than agile to realize that this property of motel rooms and cottages occupies a steep incline to Lake Otsego. Aged as I am, I was unable to negotiate the distance from my room near the highway to the the lake far below. Having said that, our room was large and very, very... More

Wonderfully convenient motel/inn/cottages between Glimmerglass opera and Cooperstown. It has a small beach on the lake, and canoes and kayaks that are free for the first hour or so. Things to be aware of are the absence of breakfast facilities, and poor sound insulation between motel rooms and from the outside -- so if you have noisy neighbors or Harleys... More

Pros: Very comfortable beds/bedding; quiet; reasonably priced for location; convenient to Glimmerglass. Cons: Weak w-fi (very important for me), had to go outside for connection; room decor very plain, no charm, icy-white LED bulbs.

We didn't know this area at all and were unsure whether we should have booked a hotel nearer Cooperstown itself, but the Bayside Inn proved to be perfect. It's only about 15 minutes drive from the town and less to the trolley stop. This means that you are away from the crowds and can relax in a more peaceful environment.... More

Property was right on the lake, rooms were very clean, and it was a 5 min drive to trolley or 10 min drive to town. Water pressure in the showers was the only downside. Balcony had a very nice view of the lake.

My husband and son stayed here on their recent trip to Cooperstown. They thought the hotel room was very clean and had a great shower and bathroom . All of the staff were very friendly and gave them great advice on restaurants and tourist activities. I asked them if I should have booked a room closer to town and they... More

We stayed at the Bayside Inn when we were visiting Glimmerglass Opera Festival - this motel is super convenient, very clean and the staff is really friendly and helpful. This will be our go-to place when visiting Glimmerglass each year (but we will need to remember to book early, this place seems to fill up really fast!).

By the time I began searching accomodations for the busy July weekend I chose, I found that all the in-town places were already booked! Thankfully I was able to lock in with Bayside with only a few rooms remaining. I must say that in the end, it worked out perfectly! With the cancellation of a large event previously scheduled for...

We recently stayed in a 3-Bedroom cottage ("H") here at Bayside Inn & Marina. Very clean, well-stocked with kitchen supplies, dishes, pots and pans. Plenty of towels for all. Bathroom was very clean, furniture and floors throughout were well-kept, clean and tidy. We were surprised to notice someone had been in to straighten the rooms, beds were made after first... More
