We had a fabulous weekend in Cooperstown and a big part of it was because of Patti & Steve. They are wonderful hosts and their home is incredibly welcoming and comfortable. Breakfast all three mornings was awesome. Steve does a wonderful job cooking and Patti keeps the coffee and conversation flowing! They have a comfortable living room to spend spare... More

We stayed at the Rose and Thistle for 2 nights before New Years. As soon as we arrived Steve updated us on the sights to see and even the best restaurants to try. Everything he recommended was delicious! Patti and Steve provided an amazing breakfast that first morning and were gracious hosts for our short stay. We can't wait to... More

We stayed at the Rose & Thistle B&B this fall to view the autumn show of color and to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame with out of town visitors. The location of this B&B makes it convenient to visit the BB Hall of Fame by foot, avoiding looking for available parking. The owners were a delightful couple who went... More

Hi Folks, We are sorry that you were disappointed with your accommodations with us. We take pride in making sure that our guests are comfortable while staying with us. We are a Queen Anne Victorian as opposed to a Grand Victorian so space is a bit smaller here. The bathrooms were already installed when we purchase the home. We do... More

The Rose and Thistle provided the perfect atmosphere for a weekend get-away. Patti and Steve are gracious hosts with quite the knack for story telling. The morning of our trip I received a detailed email from Patti with driving directions to avoid the back roads in the dark. They served delicious multi-course breakfasts and provided lively conversation. When my husband... More

From the moment you walk through the door, hosts Patti & Steve make you feel at home. The house is charming and the room we stayed in was inviting, comfortable and immaculate. One word "BREAKFAST." Steve works magic in the kitchen and I am not talking about pancakes. We were treated to a multi course breakfast that started with bread... More

The owner/operators have devised a way to make guests feel both spoiled and completely at home. The rooms are thoughtfully decorated and pleasing to the eye. But it's really the sense of hospitality which shines through. From the amazing breakfasts to great suggestions about places to see customized to our preferences, we felt totally pampered. I can see why people... More

Patti & Steve are very engaging hosts. The house is very comfortable - welcoming, clean and beautifully decorated. Upon our arrival, Patti gave us tea, a map, list of restaurants and most importantly, her experience with those restaurants and information about the sites in the area. Steve does an amazing breakfast and I am a person who does not normally... More
