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.

We stayed in Kimberley's room, which is right off the dining room. It was perfect for us. Plenty of privacy and no stairs. Bathroom in room in small but perfectly adequate. It was a delight to be the recipient of such great hospitality, a lovely and clean home and the food was delicious. During our stay, there were great guests... More

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. We do hope that if you plan to visit Cooperstown... More

Patti was very welcoming as we arrived and spot on with the directions she gave us around town and further as well as in her recommendations. The B & B is located right on the trolley route... More

We don't stay in B&Bs a lot because we enjoy our privacy, but Patti is so warm and welcoming that you feel right at home. Her location is easy to find and very convenient. She knows a lot about the area and can easily recommend a restaurant or activity based on your interests. The breakfasts were excellent and it was... More
