First off, great location; you can walk anywhere in downtown Cooperstown from the Barnwell Inn. Secondly, what a homey, cozy, accommodating atmosphere! My husband and I had the Green Room upstairs while my parents stayed in the downstairs suite, which was great in the evenings because we could get together and either sit in the living area, or sit on the porch. The breakfasts are AMAZING! Caramel and chocolate cheesecake and a parmesan and virginia ham quiche, breakfast pizza, ALWAYS homemade biscuits and bacon, fresh fruit and coffee and juice. Tara and Mark go out of their way to make the "breakfast" part of "bed and breakfast" so special. No bagels and dry croissants here! They even made a blueberry french toast casserole for me on my birthday during our stay. Everything was clean and well kept. They respected our privacy and were prompt to answer questions. Tara was full of helpful advice on where to shop or eat during our stay and Mark was full of great stories about his recipes. My husband remarked that Tara is "probably the friendliest person I've ever met". We loved everything about staying at the Barnwell Inn and we look forward to staying there again soon!
