I had never visited Cooperstown before but love baseball, and chose Bryn Brooke out of the blue because of the double "B" (a la base-ball) in its name -- not scientific or researched, but sometimes you just have to go with the karma. It was a great choice. I loved the old, historic house, was thrilled about the lovely swimming pool, and the breakfasts were top notch. The staff was friendly, too, which I really appreciated since I was traveling alone. I felt I had gone back in time, and just relaxed in this charming place with warm hospitality. Bryn Brooke is the best!
