In January, I called for reservations for 2 nights over Memorial Day Weekend. I was informed that there was a minimum 2 night stay. Great, just what I wanted. I assumed that the person (owner) taking the reservation would make it correct. Thus, I was not careful to read my confirmation as soon as it arrived. Much to my chagrin,... More

I found this motel to be just as it was described on the website. Clean, inexpensive, and quiet! Friendly staff and I really loved the colorful rocking chairs on the front porch. I only ever visited Cooperstown for a day visit, because my home's proximity to the town is just over 75 miles. Seeing how affordable and comfortable an overnight... More

Stayed here with wedding guests for a family wedding. The cottages were well equiped and spotless. Management could not have been nicer or more efficient. Each cottage has a beautiful view of the lake. Although Bayside is out of town, the ability to be away from the crowds was appreciated.

Had a 3-day conference in Cooperstown. Feel very fortunate to have found this place. Very convenient to town, and offered fishing and R&R in our down time. Would love to stay here again. Awesome for getting a good night's sleep. Beautiful view. Extremely helpful staff.

I only stayed for one night and didn't have the chance to take advantage of all the amenities but I'm looking forward to going back to do just that. Such a quaint and homey place, the lake and beach are amazingly beautiful, and the staff are friendly as can be. It's an absolute gem.

The Bayside Inn has a great property right on Otsego Lake. The rooms were clean and well furnished, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and there are several unusual amenities such as a beach, fire pit, bbq pavilion, and canoe / kayak rentals. We wish we had planned to spend more time on the property!

This three bedroom cabin was a very reasonable price for the area. We have stayed in similar places on Lake George and paid more for a place that isn't as clean. Bayside is not too far from Cooperstown. Although it would be easier to stay in the village and walk to places of interest, the prices are quite high. This... More

Imagine waking up and seeing the sun crest above the hill. The turquoise colored water of Otsego Lake swimmers in the morning breeze, Stately pines frame the image and seem to beckon to you. James Fenimore Cooper was right on target is calling this lake Glimmerglass. It is also easy to see how these surroundings would stimulate his famous novels.... More

We were attending a wedding and Bayside Inn & Marina was recommended by the wedding party. It was the high season so, although we weren't particularly interested in the Cooperstown amenities, we paid more, for 2 nights, than is typical for this quality of accommodation (even though it may well be a typical price in Cooperstown). Generally facilities are a... More

Jennifer M, General Manager at Bayside Inn & Marina, responded to this review

Thank you ah_vacation for taking the time to review your stay. Cooperstown is a beautiful place for a destination wedding and high season is a prime time to visit. Our rates are competitive with our competition and much lower than the chain hotels, which are not located on the lake. We do purchase quality towels in a variety of colors... More

The room was very clean and had a pretty good view of the lake. The noise factor of the room was not real good, but we enjoyed our stay anyway. Staff was very hospitable and friendly. Will stay here again if the opportunity presents itself. Will ask for a room on the upper floor next time.
