Bryn Brooke Manor is handsome and spacious, shingle-style Victorian built in 1884. A welcoming, beautifully restored house, it is remarkable for its straight lines and impressive butternut woodwork. We offer nineteenth century charm with 21st century comforts, including private baths, television, refrigerators, and WiFi in our comfortable guest rooms. We are ideally located on three hilltop acres within the Village of Cooperstown, walking distance to restaurants, shopping and major attractions. Breakfast is ample and features local produce, eggs, meats, maple syrup, honey, and more. We bake from scratch, of course. Bryn Brooke Manor requests that all of guests be 16 years of age or older.

Even before we traveled, Brenda had sent us a book of local cycling routes because she knew we are cyclists. What a gift! She greeted us with a hug, animated conversation, and freshly baked cookies. She toured the house with us. It is a classic shingle style home, high on a hill, just a five minute walk from town center. Brenda's home is not only beautiful and historic, it is also filled with hangings, books, and artwork she has collected over the years, each piece with its own personal history. The gardens are stunning with beauty, variety, and design. Brenda's conversation ranges widely, from books to anecdotes to decorating to music, and yes, even to politics. Her breakfasts, served with pride and enthusiasm, were many courses, each more delicious than the last, if that is possible. Our bedroom was quiet and cozy (the more so because we had lived in the very room 45 years ago as newlyweds, when the now gorgeous house was otherwise empty and likely to face a wrecking ball!). Brenda provided our traveling companions with a most generous upgrade. And in the evenings there were even more cookies! After four delightful days enjoying Brenda's home, her friendship, and her hospitality we felt grief as we left. Bryn Brook Manor is Cooperstown's finest asset! If you can stay with Brenda you will be a happy traveler!

This was our second year staying at Bryn Brooke Manor and my husband and I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. We love Cooperstown, staying there while in New York State for the big Travers Cup Horse Race in Saratoga. For us, part of the charm of Cooperstown is the Manor and its owner. The rambling historic home is surrounded by green space frequented by deer, yet walking distance to downtown. The large public spaces and bedrooms are comfortable and charming , the outdoor seating area great for a glass of wine, and our bed offered a great night's sleep. Breakfast is plentiful and good. I was swooning over warm biscuits fresh out of the oven but when the owner, Brenda, heard that my husband loves scones, the next day's breakfast included yummy home made cranberry lemon scones. We have travelled fairly extensively, often staying at B & B's, and Bryn Brooke is the only one where the experience was so warm and interesting that we felt compelled to return. Thanks Brenda!

It was our first time in Cooperstown, NY. Brenda is a gracious host and wonderful cook. Our room was clean, bedding was very comfortable and the breakfasts were tasty. The house is decorated to match it's historical significance yet it has many modern amenities.

Not sure how I found this gem of a B&B, but glad I did. Was looking for a reasonable place within walking distance of Cooperstown and we found it. Brenda (our host) and her daughter Elizabeth, couldn't have been any nicer. We felt right at home. Breakfasts were bountiful and they offered us anything we wanted. Located atop a small winding road, the place was charming. we each had our room with an adjoining bathroom. clean, comfortable, and although we didn't use it, there's even an outdoor pool. Easy access to all the activities nearby, we especially appreciated being close to the center of town. I highly recommend Bryn Brook, and would definitely stay there again. We were also given a nice little basket of goodies and favors (set of glasses) upon departure. We loved it.

My family serendipitously found Bryn Brooke Manor and its talented, energetic hostess, Brenda Berstler, (assisted by daughter Elizabeth) in the summer of 2002. I was looking for a place that was calm and peaceful - it was the summer after 9-11 -- and, also, a place where we would not need a car. For my younger son, then 7 years old, the Baseball Hall of Fame was the attraction. But we soon realized The Glimmerglass Opera Festival was also nearby and we took advantage of that, as well as the Fenimore Art Museum and the wonderful Farmers Museum. We traveled by bus from New York City and walked to Bryn Brooke Manor from the bus stop though Brenda had offered to pick us up from the bus. A memorable moment from our first visit occurred when Brenda caught us just as we were about to board the bus back to New York City and reunited my son with his favorite stuffed bear, Misha, whom he had left behind. We love the whole gestalt of "Brenda's place," a gracious Victorian home set on hill, a stone's throw (if you have a good arm) from the pristine Otsego Lake. Strolling from her wonderful Victorian home (a comfortable, four-room bed and breakfast), past the lovely historic homes of Cooperstown to Main Street with its bookstores, bakery and library is just a restorative pleasure to remember until your next visit. Each time we visit Bryn Brooke Manor we go to the Fenimore Museum and to at least two of the Glimmerglass opera productions. Brenda is certainly expert on the ins and outs of Cooperstown and the more rewarding places to eat, but none of those places can quite live up to the breakfasts served at Bryn Brooke Manor, itself. If breakfast is your favorite meal of the day, this place is really for you. Brenda and her daughter Elizabeth turn out one farm-to-table masterpiece after another. Nothing is pretentious, mind you. It's just wildly delicious. If only I were there now! In addition, at the height of the financial crisis, Brenda started a second, complementary business called Savor New York. So if you are in the mood, visit her store (or catalog) and stock up on treats - most of them native to New York State - to sustain you until you return to Bryn Brooke Manor.
