This is a gem of a B&B in a gem of a town. The innkeepers, Ron and Susie Streek, are as welcoming and attentive as any we have encountered, perhaps the best we have enjoyed meeting. Our room was a bit on the small side but perfectly cozy with an extremely comfortable queen bed. And our room had the largest bathroom with double sinks and a shower/tub combination, which we prefer. There are two other rooms, one having a king bed and more spacious; the other has a queen with good space as well. Both have smaller bathrooms with showers.
Our room, and the inn as a whole, was very neat and impeccably clean. We were welcome to enjoy the living room which we did for a little while each evening. Susie's delicious breakfast is served between 8 and 9 AM, and we certainly didn't leave the table hungry. The off street parking was a convenience, although we visited midweek and parking would not have been a problem. It's only a two or three block walk into the main part of town so unless you plan to explore further around the lake, there is no need to move your car.
We can't say enough about how welcomed we felt when we entered the Main Street B&B. Susie and Ron seem to genuinely enjoy meeting their guests and welcoming them into their home. We never once felt like we were in a stranger's house...it felt almost like home. We also liked that the owners resided in the house. That is not always the case with all B&B's. We highly recommend the Main Street B&B for those who enjoy a smaller, more intimate B&B experience. With only three rooms, it is a quiet and restful place to stay and where service with a smile abounds. We would stay there again should we ever go back to Cooperstown, without hesitation!
