“Relaxation On The Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Visiting Cooperstown with our two grandchildren and staying at the Bayside Inn was a very pleasant experience. We had a room with a balcony and although the view was partially obstructed (knew this in advance) it was calm and beautiful to sit and view the lake. The kids had fun down at the lake swimming. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The owners were very pleasant and gave unlimited information on the surrounding area. We would definitely stay here again, without giving it a second thought.

Our family visited Cooperstown for my son's Dreams Park tournament. We rented Cottage K and found it to be a nice place with enough room for all 5 of us. Overall, we enjoyed the location, the views and the amenities.
However, we would recommend the following upgrades:
- Our TV's DVD player did not work - suggestion to upgrade the TV
- Have more dishes in the cottage, including more prepartion dishes such as measuring cups, baking sheets, pizza trays, etc
- Upgrade the mattress on the fold-out coach/bed - it was very flimsy and uneven

Overall, we enjoyed the place but we felt $1600 for the week was a bit steep when compared to other rental options around the Cooperstown area
We had friends staying in a house on Arnold Lake for the same timeframe and they payed $1500 for a full house and it's amenities ... just something to consider

, Manager at Bayside Inn & Marina, responded to this review, July 16, 2012
I am glad that this family enjoyed their stay at Bayside and I appreciate their upgrade recommendations. Unfortunately, it was not brought to my attention that the DVD player didn't work. I do plan to upgrade all TV's in the cottages for the 2013 season and will strongly consider the other recommendations. Currently all cottages include linens, pillows (1 per twin; 2 per double), blankets and comforters, basic cookware and glassware, cork screws, dishes and silverware, dish towels, iron and ironing board, can opener, toaster, blender, coffee maker and filters, microwave oven, charcoal grills, garbage bags, toilet tissue, cable TV with HBO, air conditioning, dish soap and hair dryer.

Bayside offers more than most private houses in the area and all of our room and cottage rates include full use of all amenities on the property. Our guests have access to the fitness room, game room, hospitality room, small sandy swimming beach, picnic areas and canoes and kayaks. There is something at Bayside for everyone!

Bayside Inn is a nice place to stay if you are visiting the Cooperstown area. Although the rooms are older, they are very clean and well kept as are the entire grounds. The Inn is a 15 minute drive from Cooperstown up beautiful Hwy 80.

The rooms with a balcony have partially obstructed views of the lake. The private beach is located a short walk down the hill and has a sandy swimming area and some beach chairs.

The staff is very friendly and eager to make your stay more enjoyable. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony if you want a view of the lake. They have canoes and kayaks available for...

My boyfriend and I just returned from a visit to Cooperstown and were happy we chose the Bayside Inn & Marina. We ended up renting Cottage "D," which was available for our intended stay and economically priced. We are usually campers, so the cottage was a nice change from our usual habit of "roughing it." I have no complaints about the cottage or the amenities offered, except that if one hopes to go for a swim, this is not really the place for that (not part of our requirement although it may be for some). We were psyched about the free kayak/canoe rentals and took advantage of a morning paddle. Our favorite part? The game room. Still kids at heart, we must have spent so much money playing arcade games all night, listening to music on the eclectic jukebox, and kicking each other's butts on "Street Fighter 2." The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, and we always felt at home. While a little bit up the lake from Cooperstown, it was an easy and quick drive, and we felt like we were in the center of everything yet removed enough to be relaxed. I would (and will) recommend this place to friends looking to visit Cooperstown and the surrounding area.

On a recent trip to Cooperstown NY to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame we stayed at the Bayside Inn and Marina which is about 7 miles outside of Cooperstown on a lovely lake. We had booked 2 rooms and were in room 3 & 4 in the motel. The rooms were very clean with 2 queen size beds, a small refrigerator and coffee pot with coffee. It had a good size balcony where you could sit and look at the peaceful lake. It was a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. They also had coffee and tea in the lobby for you. There were kayaks, boats and fishing poles for you to use as well as a nice beach. The cottages looked nice but they were booked when we called. The rates were by far the best in the area. Note the hotel/motel rates in the Cooperstown area and 30 miles outside in any direction really zoom up in the summer. Our only disappointment was that to get any food you had to drive the 7 miles into Cooperstown. There are not any restaurants or stores any closer.

We wnjoyed our stay at Bayside Inn. The room was clean and well taken care of. The front desk staff was extremely helpful in guiding us about places to visit and to eat. The beach area is well maintained and the kids had fun playing in the water and the sand. There are both motel rooms and cabins depending on your needs. Cooperstown is a nice place to visit; the town has many beautiful old homes and of course there is the Baseball Hall of Fame which is not to be missed: there is an art museum and across the street is the Farmers Museum which is great for the whole family. Great place to stay in an area which has lots of things to do if you want.

We stayed in Cottage F & two hotel rooms and it was incredibly ideal for our group! The staff is what makes this place even better than the rooms...they were so accommodating, gracious and courteous. The grounds and rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hotel rooms had recently been renovated and rumor has it the cottage we were in will undergo some additional upgrades soon. My in-laws loved having a balcony with a water view and the cottage suited our small family well - with a full kitchen, pull-out sofa and one bedroom. The beach was a nice bonus with defined swimming area, gazebos, and beach chairs. They have a marina on site, which was perfect for the rental boat that picked us up for our 1/2 day rental! Would definitely stay there again the next time we are in Cooperstown!
