“Lovely time and First rate hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

We stayed at the Rose and Thistle due to the fine reviews and were not disappointed. The property was clean and inviting. Patti was a terrific hostess and Steve's breakfasts were a highlight. Thank you rude woman from Saks. (Ask Patti about that reference.)

We stayed with Patti and Steve as we were travelling from England to surprise our Grandson who was playing baseball at Dreamspark.Everything about our stay was perfect with Patti even driving us to Dreamspark for the opening ceremony where we could meet our son.Saras room was lovely,Steves breakfasts were fantastic with a different dish every morning.They gave us recommendations for dining and were happy to chat with us in the evenings on the porch. We can honestly say this is one of the best holidays we have had. Thanks again Patti and Steve.

I booked my stay at the Rose and Thistle based the excellent reviews here. I can without a doubt say that my expectations were exceeded. Steve and Patti were excellent hosts that are warm and welcoming.

My husband and I will definitely miss waking up to the delicious breakfast every morning. If you stay there and the pumpkin bread is available you must try it. The bread is so GOOD!

The Rose and Thistle is a terrific Bed and Breakfast located in beautiful Cooperstown, close to the Baseball Hall of Fame, fine museums and other attractions as well as numerous good restaurants. We have stayed at the Rose and Thistle three times in the last few years, taking close friends along with us. Patti and Steve are the ultimate hosts. The site is immaculate and very comfortable. They are knowledgable, thoughtful and informative about the area and the breakfast that is provided each day features Steve's unique daily creations. We have never been disappointed. If you are visting Cooperstown to see the Hall of Fame, the other museums, The Glimmerglass Opera or other local attractions, you must strongly consider staying with Patti and Steve. We will certainly be returning once again.

Pat and Pattie D.

We chose the Rose & Thistle because it was one of the accommodations in Cooperstown that offered the VIP weekend at the Baseball Hall of Fame. We had never stayed at a b&b before. The entire experience was wonderful. Patti & Steve D'Esposito made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. The home is an old treasure and very charming. The breakfasts were delicious and the lovely china and linens made breakfast special. Clean freaks will love this place - you could almost eat off the floor! We would recommend the Rose & Thistle to anyone planning to go to Cooperstown. And on a side note - the VIP tour at the Baseball Hall of Fame is worth every penny.

great location, great hosts, would stay again in the near future. Walking distance to main st, hall of fame. Owners offered great recommendations regarding local eateries and the like.
well furnished rooms with tons of privacy. My wife has a food allergy and they were very cooperative in modifying breakfast, enough to eat so we skipped lunch both days

The Rose and Thistle is a charming B&B pretty close to the attractions in Cooperstown. Patti and Steve D'Esposito are friendly, considerate hosts. The Breakfasts were hearty and delicious. Our complaints were: The bathroom was way too small (unavoidable in an old house such as this) and the room was smallish too. But overall a nice experience. We recommend it.
