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

Thank you Patti and Steve for a much needed mid week getaway. This is our third time staying at the Rose and Thistle. We stayed in Nicki's room this time and it was very comfortable and the linens were so luxurious. We had a wonderful breakfast with the most beautiful table setting.

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.

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."
