“A Cooperstown Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2011

What a treat to spend a night as Patti and Steve's guest. We had never been to Cooperstown and had never stayed at a B&B. Patti gave us an orientation to the town including a list a restaurants and everything at The Rose & Thistle was first class. We had a great room with lots of attention to detail - bottles of water in the room and coffee in the morning. The breakfast was great and more than we could eat. Good job!

Except that we should have booked more that two nights! Cooperstown is way more than baseball just like the Rose and Thistle is way more than just a Bed and Breakfast. These people know their business. The breakfasts Steve prepared were over the top as was Patti's coffee! The breakfast table chatter was most fun. It was like having a private guide/chamber of commerce at our beck and call. Don't spend all your time at the BHF and miss the Art Museum and dinner at Alex and Ika's, both well worth the time! We will return!

We stayed with Patti & Steve overnight for a family trip (first time) to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Fantastic service from the time Patti took our reservation to our delicious breakfast cooked by Steve and to the next day when we checked out. Our room was gorgeous and very well equipped and comfortable. Bathroom was lovely -- tub and separate shower stall. Breakfast was delicious ... all home made from scratch. Great location -- 10 minute walk to the center of Cooperstown or you can catch the trolley across the street pretty much. Would definitely go back and would definitely recommend. Kid friendly (ours are 10 & 13).

Steve and Patti are the best! They are incredibly personable, helpful, informed, entertaining - and great cooks. Their B&B is lovely and about 8/10ths of a mile from downtown - close enough for an enjoyable walk to town but far enough out to feel more private. Their front porch is a magical place to sit and read or chat and drink wine (they graciously supply the wine glasses and the cork screw). The beautiful flower gardens surrounding the B&B and porch make it that much more special and with the scent of gardenia and colorful birds, you can't get a much more restful and inspiring experience. We've stayed with Patti and Steve in the past and intend to return - often. Two thumbs up!

I think this was our 5th visit to the Rose and Thistle. We brought our daughter with us this time and it didn't take long for her to fall in love with this place just like we have. You aren't guests or clients....you're family! We already have another trip booked for the end of September with friends of ours ( our 3rd trip here with them), and my daughter loved her trip so much she wants to come back with us! We have created another Rose and Thistle lover!!
