Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Found this place on tripadvisor. wanted a quiet place to stay on our first trip to BHOF and Cooperstown. Room had private balcony with lake view.great value. Room was very clean and well kept. Staff was incredibly helpful with restaurant recommendations. Would certainly recommend Bayside if you are coming to Cooperstown or you are looking for a laid back lake vacation.

I booked here based on trip advisor reviews and the closeness to Cooperstown. The lake view and the overall cleanliness was outstanding. From check in to check out every aspect of our stay was pleasant and above our expectations. We visited during early fall so we did not use the lake or beach area but I'm sure it's great in the summer time. I will recommend this to my friends who are soon planning a trip to Cooperstown. Good Job!

Room Tip: Top floor has a balcony and better lake views. We were in room 6 next to maids room

Green Features: Great recycling program. The shampoos & toiletries were all environmentally friendly as well.

My wife and I spent tow lovely nights at the Bayside Inn in Cooperstown in September 2013. We had a very nice upper level room with a balcony and a view (partial through the trees) of Lake Otsego. The price was very reasonable. The Bayside is located about 7 miles north of Cooperstown on the western shore of Lake Otsego. The rooms were clean. There is no food available and the nearest restaurant (The Blue Mingo which is good) is about 5 miles towards Cooperstown. Fresh coffee was served in the lobby area every morning along with apples and oranges. All in all a very nice place to stay and we would recommend it if yhou are staying in the Cooperstown area.

Room Tip: The rooms with balconies are very nice. There are also cabins along the lake front.

Rooms a bit out dated. Place was clean and the front desk person in the morning on Saturday and Sunday was friendly. Great view of the lake. About 7 miles from Cooperstown.
Quiet area. They have board games if you get board.

Great place, we chose the room for the balconey, nice with a glass of wine looking out over the lake. We toured many of the wineries and cooperstown. The manager was very friendly, even shared her personal wine aerater so we could experience the difference with our wine. Great to have fresh coffee made for us in the morning. The rooms are very clean, the grounds well maintained, definite bounus having kayaks and canoes available, another reason why we chose to stay here. I am very picky about bathrooms and ours was very clean, only negative was the hair dryer, not enough power to dry your hair. Would have been nice to have a microwave in the room. I guess they are only in the lower level rooms, still would choose the balconey and view over the microwave.

Thank you Cora R for the great review. I am happy that I was able to help you and your husband experience the flavors that the aerator brings out in wine, it is a wonderful little "gadget". I am also glad that you and your husband enjoyed exploring the beautiful lake with the canoes and kayaks. I am sorry, however, that the hairdryer didn't work as intended, I replaced it as soon as I read the suggestion on your comment card. Thank you for informing us of the problem. The lower level rooms in our motel do have microwaves but there is a microwave in our hospitality room that anyone is free to use at any time of the day and night.

You and your husband were a pleasure to chat with and I hope to see you again in the future!

Nice staff.Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Would stay again.Located about seven miles from Cooperstown but reasonably priced for the area.Numerous choices for accommodations including small cottages which I would consider on the next trip to the area. No restaurant but coffee and tea available in the lobby in the morning.Nice touch.

Our first impression of The Bayside Inn was positive. The front desk lady was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions. The Inn had a lovely reading room, and even lovelier view of the lake. We went down to the lake and marina to have lunch at one of the pavilions. There was also a small, quiet beach there. We shared a bit of our lunch with the resident ducks and ducklings. My party really liked the location, and I really liked the quiet.

The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the prices were reasonable (off-season). There was sufficient parking, and it was close to Cooperstown. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide breakfast, which is why we chose the rooms with a microwave, which came in very handy. The downside of choosing the motel rooms with a microwave (they are on the lower level) is that the footsteps of the guests in the room above us were audible which was rather distracting at night.

Room Tip: The microwaves are useful if packing food but footsteps of guests above the room are audible.
