The Rose and Thistle is a wonderful, cozy, welcoming bed and breakfast. The owners are wonderful, caring people that make you feel right at home. Breakfast is fantastic! My husband and I have been there twice now...we are planning on returning next year too!! Highly recommended for your stay in Cooperstown, NY.

Pat and myself cannot say enough great things about our numerous stays at the Rose & Thistle B & B in Cooperstown, N.Y.
We have been staying there every time that we go to Cooperstown to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame since Patty and Steve opened their doors over ten years ago. There are some great attractions in that area including Cooperstown Brewery, several winery's and the Glimmerglass Opera that keep us coming back.
Steve makes a terrific breakfast that cannot be found anywhere else in town and Patty and her cleaning staff make sure the rooms are impecibly clean.
There is no reason to stay anywhere else.

My 11 year old son and I spent a wondefrul two days at the Rose & Thistle's "penthouse suite" - a cozy and spacious renovated attic with two beds and private bath - during our recent visit to Cooperstown. Can't say enough about the accomodations and the genuinely friendly and helpful nature of Patti & Steve, our hosts. We'll take away fond memories not only of the Baseball Hall of Fame from this trip, but of the sociable time we spent with our fellow guests and hosts sitting around the breakfast table or on the porch. Highly recommend that if you're going to Cooperstown, you stay at this very welcoming B&B.

What a find!!!! Having never stayed at a B & B, we did not know what to expect. The Rose and Thistle exceeded our expectations. From the minute we arrived, Patti and Steve welcomed us to their "home," and we immediately felt like we were visiting old friends. The house is warmly and tastefully decorated to make guests feel right at home. We stayed in a room named Nikki which is one of five guest rooms. We had the opportunity to view most of the other rooms, and all were very special. Each morning at 8:30, an incredibly delicious hot and hearty breakfast was served in the pretty dining room. Steve is an excellent chef! Our only regret was leaving.

Patti & Steve D'Esposito are the innkeepers that keep you coming back every year.
We meet every year for the Baseball Hall of Fame weekend with the same people.
This will be our 9th year.
Our chef Steve is just unbelievable and if you forgot it Patti has it.
Patti and Steve have people for opera, baseball, foliage, and just passing thru.
The more time you spend with Patti & Steve the more you become part of their Cooperstown family.
We love them!!!!!

What can we say? If you want a fabulous expereince when you are staying in Cooperstown, then make reservations at the Rose & Thistle.

My husband and I were lucky enough to find Steve and Patti, who own and run the 'B&B, over 8 years ago and we have never entertained staying anywhere else when we visit.

We have not only gained our secret getaway but have found two wonderful people whom we consider a part of our family. They go above and beyonnd to take care of their guests and the food is incredible.

When you visit Cooperstown and you don't stay at the Rose & Thistle, you missed out and short changed yourselves.

Do yourself a favor and call Steve and Patti to book today!

Room Tip: All rooms are great and clean!
