My husband and I are frequent guests at the Inn at Cooperstown and have always been more than pleased with everything it has to offer. This visit, however, far exceeded any other visit we have taken!
The inkeepers recently completed construction on a two-story luxury suite that is nothing short of magnificent. If you didn't know where to look, you would not notice something "new" as the architects and designers figured out a way to make the exterior of the addition blend perfectly with the original building. From the roof line to the windows to the custom trim, the exterior of the extension to the building is a perfect blend of old and new.
As always, we were welcomed by the friendly front desk staff. She was so excited about the new suite and couldn't wait to give us a personal tour!
When she opened the door we instantly knew we were in for quite a treat. The suite features a two-story open foyer, the living area tastefully painted in a light soft gold color that perfectly accents the dark wood trim throughout. Like the rest of the Inn, every appointment was tastefully chosen and very comfortable. The couch in the living area was softer than my feather bed at home! The main living area also features a gorgeous gas fireplace and huge flat screen TV, and a wet bar with a sink and refrigerator stocked with water, soda and juice. The hardwood floors and ceramic tile in the foyer sparkled.
What a treat to see the main floor bedroom! It features a giant four-poster (very high!) bed facing ANOTHER gas fireplace. It is tastefully painted in a dark red that compliments the golden color in the living area. And the bathroom! The main bathroom is decorated with the same black and white color scheme featured in the bathrooms in the main Inn, with a HUGE shower with a "rainfall" shower head and very heavy sparkling glass door. There is also a jet tub (built for two!) unlike any I have seen - gorgeous. The heated ceramic tile floors are also a special treat.
We were then escorted up the stairs to the second floor. At the top of the stairs is a HUGE sitting area, appointed with a lovely leather couch and comfy chairs. I was told the couch also pulls out to a bed. Oh, did I mention the window treatments are also beautiful throughout? It is obvious the Innkeepers work with the best architects and interior designers...
The second story bedroom is as gorgeous as the first story, without the fireplace. The bed was configured as a king, but we were told it could be separated into two twin beds to accommodate a family.
The second story bathroom is almost the same as the first, without the jet tub. All the bathroom fixtures sparkle, and the decorators chose very interesting designs that once again compliment what is featured in the main Inn.
I must say this suite surpassed many that we have seen in highly rated Inns throughout the Northeast. There is nothing we could find that needed improvement - in fact, we walked around with our mouths agape until we finally settled in with a nice bottle of champagne on the comfy down couch in front of the fireplace.
When you visit Cooperstown, you MUST stay at the Inn at Cooperstown, and if you are able, you MUST take a look at this magnificent suite. You will not be disappointed.
