“Great place to stay with fabulous hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

Proprietors Pattie and Steve will make your stay in Cooperstown enjoyable. Whether giving you the low down on where to eat (both with experience being NYC restuaranteers; Pattie as manager of the Saks 5th Avenue cafe or Steve as a restaurant owner right off Wall Street), telling you how to get around and what to do, or facilitating great conversation at breakfast, this is a great place to stay. It is clean, convenient (yet not in the middle of town) with some great off-season deals and their breakfasts are wonderful to start your day. A great base for visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame and just enjoying Cooperstown.

We had a fantastic stay at the Rose and Thistle. The close proximity to downtown Cooperstown and the National Baseball Hall of Fame was convenient. Near the shores of Otsego Lake, it was like taking a vacation at a quiet, coastal town. We raved about it so much a relative gave us a gift certificate that we cannot use. We'd like someone to benefit from this gift, so contact me at acwindeler-at-gmail-dot-com if interested.

The hosts, Patti and Steve, were very personable, quite knowledgeable about the area, and offered suggestions that we found incredibly helpful. Steve's breakfasts were absolutely delicious and Patti's service couldn't have been better. The inn is just outside of the main street of town, maybe a half a mile, so it is more than close enough without being in the middle of hustle and bustle. The rooms were clean, beautifully appointed, and offered comfort in obvious and tiny, special ways. We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone!

The Rose and Thistle – Patti and Steve welcome you to their B & B with open arms as if you were friends they have not seen in a long-time. They are so welcoming and open that you feel right at ease within a few minutes. They take the time to sit down and explain Cooperstown to you, the restaurants, the HOF, the Farmer’s Market, etc… The breakfast were fantastic, upon waking, your nostrils are treated to the warm aromas of bacon and whatever the breakfast that morning. For us, the first day was an apple pancake that my husband is still raving about. The second morning, a superb zucchini quiche. Both with all the extras and fixing’s...We can only rave about The Rose and Thistle!

Our stay at the Rose and Thistle B & B was very enjoyable. It was our first trip to Cooperstown NY. Patti and Steve not only were superb host, but were very informative of the history of the town and soundring attractions to see. They were very warm and friendly, and we had nice conversations with them. It was like staying with close friends. Our room was fresh and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast they provided during our 3 day stay were outstanding. Looking forward to a return vist.

Our first trip to Cooperstown was of course to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame. It was a dream of mine for almost 40 years and finally to get there, it was awesome. The highlight of my trip. Spent 2 days there to soak it all in. We stayed at The Rose and Thistle Bed and Breakfast and what a lovely place. The inn keepers, Patti and Steve D'Esposito were the perfect hosts and charming people. Very intimate and family oriented and those breakfasts they served. Phenomenal. My husband and I recommend it to anyone when they're visiting Cooperstown and looking for accomodations. You will not be dissapointed.

I recently visited Cooperstown with my mom to visit the Hall of Fame. The Rose & Thistle B&B was fabulous. I have stayed in many B&B's, and this place had the best breakfast. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating. Our room was nicely decorated had everything we needed (private bath, TV, alarm clock, iron). The breakfast table was the hub of activity and entertainment and in the morning with the hosts chatting with the guests (no stuffy or awkward conversation moments). We had many laughs at the table. Also, the porch outside provided a relaxing place to rest, read a book, or converse with the other guests and the hosts. I would go back just for the inn!

Also, after getting lost on the way up, Patti provided me the most exact directions on how to get home - saved me tons of time! Ignore the GPS!
