We stayed at Steve and Patti's Storybook Apartments right next door to their Rose and Thistle Bed and Breakfast for a week while our son played baseball at Dreams Park. The room was just what we wanted. Clean and neat with everything we needed for a weeks stay. A home away from home. Upon check in Steve gave us the... More

Returned here after two years and still love it. In fact we recommended it to neighbors--it was their first-ever B&B experience and they enjoyed it too. Patti and Steve are so friendly that it's like visiting cousins you've always liked and haven't seen in awhile. It's great to have off-street parking and be able to walk into town (where parking...

I enjoyed my stay at the Rose & Thistle B&B. Patti and Steve, the owners, were very friendly and gracious. The breakfasts that were served were wonderful and all their recommendations for eating in Cooperstown were very good. My room was comfortable and my bathroom, spacious.

This is my first stay at a B&B and Steve and Patti set the standard high for any comparison at any other that I will stay. They make you feel like family instead of just a regular guest. The different breakfasts each morning were yummy and the room was perfect. If anyone wants to stay at a B&B in Cooperstown,... More

Spent 3 nights here in early May. Was made to feel at ease right away. Had great conversation with both Steve and Patti. Food was excellent and their suggestions for local restaurants were on the money. Would stay here again without a doubt.

Visited Cooperstown for one night. Patti and Steve are very gracious hosts. The B&B is very clean, the breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Steve gave us the quick history of the BB Hall of Fame and recommended some restaurants and sites to visit. The living room was small, and we were not quite sure if it was for guests since... More

Hi Jeff and Ceil, Thank you for the review. The living room is for the guests and usually when guests return and Steve is sitting there, he invites guests in to join in conversation and asks how their day/dinner went unless they just come in and go to their room. The bathroom for your room was in the hallway, but... More
