“Pleasant people, delicious food, cozy rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

thanks to Dave and Lori for a very nice time at their B&B. My girlfriend and I did a last minute trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Our room was cozy and warm! The owners were super friendly, even after we showed up late, made us feel like family! The food was amazing and the snacks to choose from was dizzying! The drive and surrounding areas were really nice! 5 stars and highly suggest to anyone looking to take a trip in the vicinity!

We recently stayed at the Brookside Inn and had a great time. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating. The area is beautiful with many interesting things to see and do, even off season.The Sage Room was homey, spacious and well kept. The breakfasts were delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Our second visit over Thanksgiving weekend was even better than our first visit 2 years ago. Both Lori & Dave are still wonderful hosts and it was fun spending an evening with them and Lori’s sister and brother-in-law. Dave’s still a great cook with his new Amaretto French Toast which was fantastic. And, he shared his recipe for home fries. Lori creates such a homey area and her decorating is inspiring. They continue to make improvements throughout the house – we just loved the upstairs sitting room! Melita & Bill G

We stayed two nights In August While dropping our son of at Suny Oneonta but could happily have stayed longer if only to enjoy the breakfasts goodies created by Dave and Lori. But there was more than that with hosts who were welcoming and ever ready to give good advice on attractions in Cooperstown and dining out in the easily accessible restaurants in the area. The bedrooms are are clean and have character, as does the whole Inn with its pleasant small town setting and spacious lounge/breakfast area, where one can indulge in snacks and cookies or have a chat with Lori over a coffee at any time.

I've stayed in many B&B's and had pleasant experiences in most, but the Brookside Inn At Laurens was a cut above all of them. We were passing threw the area for business and it was the only place available Lori and Dave welcomed us with open arms. Even though we had arrived later than planned she gave a tour of the house, showed us how to use all the amenities,

The house is beautiful, spacious and well maintained. The rooms are gorgeous, unique and feature special little touches like a Keurig machine, extra comfortable bedding and more. Lori and Dave are extremely gracious hosts - and are genuinely nice people. If you are looking for a tremendous B&B, stop looking and book the Brookside Inn At Laurens. You won't regret it!

As we now have a daughter at suny Oneonta, we knew we'd be visiting often. What good fortune, then, that we found the Brookside Inn At Laurens as early as we did! The building is beautiful, location great. Guest rooms are elegant yet simple -- luxurious linens and a feeling of understated luxury that make me want to stay longer. Love the treats and breakfasts. Sitting on the porch on a crisp fall night.Dave And Lori are friendly and attentive. Why stay anywhere else? Now if only our younger boy would consider Suny Oneonta..

This past weekend was my third stay at this B&B and I look forward to many more stays. Dave and Lori are very hospitable and make you feel like one of the family. Every room is meticulously decorated and very comfortable. Throughout this B&B there is a sitting area for every mood. The breakfast buffet was delicious and no one walks away hungry. The Village of Laurens is the perfect setting for a getaway from it all yet you're minutes away from Oneonta and Cooperstown. I would highly recommend this B&B for it's location, comfort, cleanliness and the welcoming warmth of your hosts, Dave and Lori.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong in any room here. One side of the house is next to a babbling brook, which i...
