My wife and I stayed at the rose and thistle for one night on late notice. The owner Patty was a wonderful host especially overcoming a recent hardship in her life. She is a blend of country charm with city wit and the breakfast was delicious. We loved our cozy room and the character of the house and the price... More

The rose and thistle is located near the main Cooperstown attractions without being too close. Trolley stop is right across the street. Rooms are comfortable and attractively decorated. Front porch is a shady and restful place to have a beer before heading out to the many restaraunts in the area. Patti is a great source for planning an evening out... More

Patti and Steve were very hospitable. They gave us recommendations for dinners and activities which worked out nicely. The rooms are well appointed and very quiet. The breakfasts were more that we could eat and they can accommodate your dietary needs. The inn is located near everything in Cooperstown. We hope to be up there again soon.

Two couples spent a fall weekend enjoying the Hall of Fame and several area attractions. Steve and Patty were excellent hosts. They are very personable folks who make you feel very welcome in their home. The food was good and the accommodations were also very good. We would definitely stay there again. Their dog is an added bonus....very cute.
