Rose & Thistle Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 29 Cooperstown B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 6, 2010

If you ever decide to go to Cooperstown and wonder where to stay, look no further. The Rose and Thistle is the place to be. Patti and Steve will make you feel like you're part of their family. The rooms are cozy, comfortable and impeccably clean. Patti and Steve are warm , friendly and have a great sense of humor. They go beyond all means to make sure you make the most of your stay. Wait until you experience the first rate breakfast that awaits you in the morning. Not only does the breakfast table look beautiful but the food is delicious. When it is time to go home, you may just stay another day like we did.

Our stay at the Rose and Thistle Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful choice for accommodations in Cooperstown. Steve and Patti went out of their way to accommodate us so that our HOF VIP experience was spectacular. Patti sat with us in their parlor and showed us a map of the town, a list of restaurants and made sure we knew where to park and helped navigate us so as to maximize our time while visiting this exquisite gem of a town in the middle of New York State.

Our room was immaculate and beautifully decorated. Complimentary candy and bottled water greeted us in our room as well as fresh crisp linens and a cozy down comforter. The hospitality outstanding! The dining room table was set with a beautiful Spring/Easter theme. The breakfasts were bountiful as well as delicious. The homemade bread pudding, omelet’s, home fries and biscuits, bacon and sausage to the home made banana breads just complimented the beautifully appointed table. By far, this has been the best B&B experience we have had in all our years of traveling.

Our stay just could not have been better in any way. Steve and Patti went out of their way to accomodate our family during the very busy Cooperstown Pumpkin Fest Weekend. Our rooms were great! The hospitality outstanding! The breakfast table was set with a beautiful Fall theme. Breakfast was served course after course with each dish more remarkable than the last! The service flowed and our family reunion conversation was never interuppted. The corn pudding was outstanding and the homemade bread pudding was unforgettable. Yet most remarkable were our hosts efforts to make our family reunion so memorable!

This has been our third visit to cooperstown and we always stay at a bed and breakfast.
the last time we viited we stayed at the rose and thistle. We had a wonderful time. Steve and patty made us feel right at home.Their home is charming and comfortable I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when I visit cooperstown. Breakfast is terrific and Steve even shared some of his recipes with me. Patty and Steve made us feel right at home The room that we stayed in was warm and welcoming and all the decor in the house was charming. If you plan on visiting cooperstown stay at the rose and thistle with Steve and patty because this place is a home away from home. I can't wait to visit again.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Rose and Thistle. We had never been to Cooperstown before and had only stayed at one other B & B. From the moment that we arrived, Patti and Steve made us feel like they knew us forever. Steve explained all about Cooperstown and gave us some excellent recommendations for dining. The accomodations were lovely. The bed was comfortable and the room had all the comforts of home from the Q tips to the little chocolates. The breakfasts that Steve prepared were delicious. I loved the blueberry pancakes. The coffee was awesome! Both are so warm and friendly, but it is Patti's wonderful stories I will remember. If we ever return to Cooperstown, we will definitely return to the Rose and Thistle. But without a doubt I must say that it was a truly enjoyable experience for someone who didn't like B & B's until now. Thanks Patti and Steve for all of your warmth.

Patty and Steve made us feel like family and not just guests. Patty's breakfast table was set as if she was expecting royalty. When we were there she was shopping for items to place on the table so that her guests would feel more like home. But this would not be complete without Steve's outstanding breakfast preparations. They both managed to be a part of our stay and yet knew when to give us our privacy. Steve's recommendations for restaurants were right on.
Our room was great and do not let the fact that they are on a main street keep you away. The nights were very quiet with hardly any traffic.
Look no further if you are looking for a charming and very friendly B&B.

We absolutely enjoyed our 2 night stay at the charming Rose & Thistle. Patti and Steve are such down-to-earth and friendly hosts, you feel like you're best friends as soon as you walk thru the door. Food was wonderful, abundant and satisfying -- thanks to Chef Steve! Patti has some hilarious stories to tell and her great attention to detail with her table settings and the rooms are beautiful. We immediately felt comfortable staying at this B&B. We also enjoyed meeting Morgan their adorable and well behaved Westie dog. Hugs to all...and we'll definitely be back to visit! - Kathy and Dave
