My partner and I just spent a lovely weekend at this B&B, owned and run by Patti and Steve D'Esposito. They were great hosts, with lots of local information, and great restaurant suggestions. The B&B is very nice and the rooms have lots of nice touches (bathrobes in our room, African violets in the bathroom, motion sensors in the hallway). And it was very clean. The breakfasts were fabulous. As a foodie and former personal chef, I was thrilled with the great breakfasts. The porch is great - in warmer weather, I would have loved enjoying it. All in all, a wonderful experience and we'd highly recommend it, and hope to return.

Hi Holly and Kathleen,

Thanks for the lovely review of our B&B.

It was a pleasure having you both and we enjoyed watching the Masters Golf Classic together.

We are glad that you arrived back in Boston safely considering it was the same day as the bombings.

We look forward to seeing you here again in Cooperstown
Stay well,

Patti and Steve

My husband & I had a wonderful time at the Rose & Thistle Bed & Breakfast. The gracious hosts, Patti & Steve made us feel at home the second we arrived Their hospitality, good food is second to none. If you are planning to go to Cooperstown, I would highly recommend you stay here. This beautiful B &B is walking distance from the BOF and the Main Street.

Patti and Steve are warm welcoming people that made our visit to Cooperstown feel like a homecoming. The B and B was clean, cute, and had plenty of character. Super close to main street!
Now that we have signed up for HoF membership, I know that my guy will want to return to Cooperstown more often! Now we know we will always have a familiar place to stay.

My husband and I came here for our second anniversary trip. We are both huge baseball fans and had never seen the Hall of Fame. We had an amazing time at Rose and Thistle! The breakfasts were delicious and it was fun to talk to the other guests. As part of our package we got a tasty loaf of lemon-poppy bread and a nice bottle of wine, as well as two tickets to the Hall of Fame. We stayed in "Nikki's Room" and it was lovely. One of the nicest surprises was the wide array of toiletries in the room. It was better than I get at most hotels!

If you are in town for a weekend, DEFINITELY stay at Rose and Thistle. If we return to Cooperstown, we will be looking them up!

I just spent my Birthday weekend in Cooperstown, and had the pleasure of staying at the Rose and Thistle Bed & Breakfast- a gift in itself! Steve and Patti were amazing hosts! The atmosphere is so relaxed and comfortable, truly a home away from home! Our room was so beautiful, and the breakfast(s) were to die for! To sit in the parlor w/ the quaint fireplace, having a cup of coffee, enjoying the company of our hosts was a treat. Steve shared so much knowledge about Cooperstown, and helped us map out our days to ensure we got to see/do everything we wanted in our 2 day stay. I can't wait to get back up there and certainly plan to stay again at the Rose and Thistle- The best place in town!! JB&PD

My boyfriend and I visited Cooperstown in September 2012 to see a show at Brewery Ommegang and also visit the brewery, tour the Hall of Fame and take in everything this town had to offer. Cooperstown is picturesque is now one of my favorite small towns and Patti and Steve gave us the best recommendations and their "locals" honest opinion, which we loved! The stay at Rose & Thistle was very welcoming, charming and short walk to town, I couldn't have chosen a cozier home. The breakfast conversations with the other guests were a great start to our mornings and winding down the evening with Patti, Steve and the guests was relaxing as we shared stories of our all-day adventures. We highly recommend this city and B&B.

Patti & Steve: Tell Morgan Nate and Lindsay say, hello!
