Excellent in all areas. Gourmet breakfasts. Consistent, good quality wifi. Clean, comfortable rooms. It was very hot in Cooperstown when I stayed but the B&B was very comfortable. Patti, the owner, is a wonderful host. She lets you know all the goings-on in the area. I was there for the Baseball Hall of Fame Induction -- less than a mile... More

This was one of our most memorable trips we`ve had ,due in great part to the outstanding facilities,first class breakfasts, but most of all the knowledge and friendliness of our hostess Patti. She is a wealth of info concerning the area and she is one of the most interesting people we`ve had the good fortune to meet. In a short... More

This will be the easiest review I have written. My only regret is that I am limited to a max of 5 stars. But then again, if I give each of the above in my review title 5 stars, that makes a total of 15 stars......much closer to the number in my head. In all seriousness, we are not world... More

Nice little bed and breakfast. The breakfast was amazing. Well prepared and thoughtful. The bed was comfortable and the room was pretty good. Bathroom inside room which was nice. TV was a little small. Parking was very very tight though, but not much you can do there. Good location as well. The stairs creek really bad and there are bells... More

Dear Brandon, Thank you for your kind review. We are happy that you were pleased with the room and breakfast. Yes, parking is a premium in Cooperstown, whether on the street or home properties. Being land locked does create issues beyond our control. The B&B was built in 1892 and this old girl does have her creaks but we feel... More

My wife and I stayed here over a Saturday night and had a delightful stay. This is what B&Bs used to be before so many of them became "Inns" and upped their prices and ambiance. This an old-fashioned B&B with cozy,comfortable rooms, furnished with just the right amount of folksy decoration. The bed was comfortable and the entire place was... More

This was our second time staying here while visiting the baseball HOF. Patty is a great host and a baseball fan to boot. Morgan, her Scottie companion is friendly. Bedrooms have their own bathroom. She has 5 bedrooms available. She has parking in the back. Breakfast is sumptuous.

A very cute place. Location was right around the corner from the Main Street. Breakfast was fresh and it was enjoyable to meet the other guests. The only problem was our room was connected to the room where we had breakfast. We stepped through the door and we were right in the breakfast room. All in all, I would consider... More

Dear Jack and Linda, We are sorry that you were not thoroughly pleased with your room being off the dining area. It was the only room available for the 1 night that you stayed with us and you were very private until breakfast was served at 8:30, which you attended.
