#4 of 29 B&Bs / Inns in Cooperstown
Located in the heart of Cooperstown, Baseball Bed and Breakfast can be easily found at the 1883 Italianate "sunny yellow house with white trim" on Chestnut Street. The 2/3-acre property has a lush green lawn in the rear (suitable for a game of catch) and a deck rimming the rear of the house where breakfast is served (weather permitting) and guests can sit on rockers to spend some quiet time reading or simply enjoying the scenery before they leave for the Glimmerglass Festival or other attractions in Cooperstown. Inside, the house is decorated with baseball memorabilia (except the music room, where the Hostess, Suzanne Rudy, can be found playing her harp at times during the day and early evening). Each of the bedrooms has air conditioning and a private bath, and is appointed in honor of one of the original five inductees to the Hall of Fame: Cobb, Ruth, Mathewson, Johnson and Wagner.

We had a wonderful time at the B&B home of Suzanne & John, just a block & a half from 100-year-old Doubleday Field and a couple of blocks from the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum. My son & stayed in our own suite named after Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson, a great pitcher for the New York Giants baseball team a century ago. While we spent most of the days & nights on the streets & establishments in Cooperstown, we had a great time at breakfast with the owners talking everything baseball, current events & the local community. We were treated fantastic...and we even played catch (or as they say in Field of Dreams, 'have a catch) in the backyard. The location was fantastic and we slept like champs.

Recently my husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the Baseball Bed & Breakfast; in Cooperstown, NY. While this was originally a place planed for my husband as part of our get away; I must say it was equality a place for me. We both felt very much at home in our surroundings. We couldn’t have enjoyed our hosts knowledge of the sport and players more. A treat for all!

Suzanne and John are wonderful hosts. Their love and knowledge of baseball is incredible. Suzanne is also involved with the Guild at Glimmerglass and can offer a lot of tips for those events, too. Conveniently located and quiet!

Our stay at the Baseball Bed and Breakfast was very nice and so convenient to all the attractions in Cooperstown. Besides excellent breakfasts, John & Suzanne gav eus great advice on restaurants and sites to see in the area. The Christy Matthewson room was comfortable for the two of us. We enjoyed all the baseball memorabilia throughout the house.
