My husband and I, along with my 81 year old father, just spent 5 days in Cooperstown to watch our son play in a baseball tournament at Cooperstown Dreams Park. We stayed at the Otesaga the first night (before my arrival), but we moved to The Inn at Cooperstown for the remainder of the trip because the Otesaga was not available...wow, how lucky are we? Our first and only nigth at the Otesaga was a disaster (bad room, poor service and very expensive--see our separate review) and several of our friends who stayed there for the week had similarly poor experiences. We were, indeed, the lucky ones as The Inn at Cooperstown is an absolute delight. The historic structure really makes you feel as if you have gone back in time, yet everything is very updated. They have wireless internet and flat screens in all the rooms. The rooms are nicely appointed and quite clean. The staff is unbeatable...friendly and always smiling. My two favorite things, however, were the front porch and the morning muffins....The front porch is lined with rocking chairs and you will find yourself wanting to sit there all day....quite relaxing. And, the highlight of the morning breakfast is the terrific coffee and the homemade muffins. We had chocolate chip muffins a couple of mornings--decadent. The cranberry and blueberry are terrific also. Cooperstown is a gem of a village with the lovely surrounding hills of Central NY. While I think most folks who can afford it feel compelled to stay at that Otesaga, don't make that mistake....The Inn at Cooperstown will make you Cooperstown visit a special one!
