Rose & Thistle Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 29 Cooperstown B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before I stayed at The Rose and Thistle in the great Village of Cooperstown and the experience was wonderful. Patti and Steve sat down with us and gave us a map of the town, a list of restaurants and explained all the local attractions in and around the Village. The Baseball Hall of Fame as well as the Art and Farmers museums were wonderful. The Rose and Thistle was clean, charming, relaxing and the breakfast we had during are two day stay were delicious. If i return to Cooperstown The Rose and Thistle is the B&B I'll return to.

On the plus side, we were made to feel very welcome by the owner, who gave us a nice overview of the town, the attractions and where to eat. We also enjoyed having an early-morning coffee on the veranda. There were a few problems: 1) an old, small, soft and very squeaky bed, which meant we hardly slept at all; 2) the bathroom was at the other end of the hallway, which was an inconvenience (I gather some rooms have in-room baths); and 3) while the breakfast is lovingly prepared and it was nice to chat with other guests, those of us on low-fat diets would prefer something lighter to eat. The Italian restaurant across the street was just-OK, while we much enjoyed the home-made ice cream spot up the road.

As soon as we set foot in The Rose & Thistle it felt like home. Patti & Steve are funny, friendly & kind. Our room, Sara's Room, was comfortable, clean, large & our own slice of heaven. The breakfasts we had were incredible & the other guests were friendly & conversations flowed. We had a great time in Cooperstown & will visit again. Patti & Steve are lovely hosts & their dog, Morgan, was adorable.

Our group of four had a great time at the Rose & Thistle. Great food, great rooms and easy access
to the center of town. Parking was also very convenient. We all had fun talking with Patti and
Steve as well as getting advice on restaurants and what to see. Beautiful area.

Pros: Nice owners, comfy porch to sit on, good location, 2 restaurants few steps away.

Cons: Room small, very dated, no flexibility on breakfast time (8.30) if leaving early.

Cooperstown mostly geared up for Baseball Hall of Fame.

Delightful experience staying in "Sara's Room" on top floor of Victorian house! Charming and cozy. B&B within walking distance to Baseball Hall of Fame. Steve and Patti are the ultimate host/hostess and very helpful with suggestions of attractions/restaurants in the area. They make you feel so welcome and at home. Steve's breakfasts are great and Patti's vivacious personality and sense of humor are a delight! She had us in stitches a number of times. Enjoyed the whole experience and will definitely stay there again when in Cooperstown!!
