We found this because most of other places were booked. It is very convenient to Cooperstown - just two miles up the road. Although road runs right in front of Inn the room was very quiet. The serenity there is wonderful. The rooms are older and bathroom small but it is very clean. Bed was comfortable and nice to have a table in room. The T.V. was pretty small but we didn't spend that much time in room.. There is NO hair dryer which I found out on the am we left. The breakfast consisted of very strong coffee, plain donuts, bagel, toast and orange juice. Everyone in Inn shared the refrigerator in this small room where breakfast is set out which is exposed to the outside. That is probably the only downfall regarding this Inn. Just a larger variety of donuts would be great and maybe some fruit. The dock across road is awesome. You can sit by the lake and enjoy the peace and quiet. It was too cold to use pool but I imagine this would be a wonderful place to stay in the summer. Beware because there is no elevator so if you have trouble hauling your luggage request room on lower level. The staff was wonderful and very nice. Would recommend this Inn if you want a no frills, but quiet, clean place to stay with a beautiful view of the lake.
Veronica and Justin are great hosts,The staff is helpful and friendly.The location lake side is beautiful.The rooms are comfy,slept very well in the bed.Very peaceful inn.I will go back in warmer weather to use the pool and lake side perks.
The only thing throughly enjoyable was the lake view. The trolley parking lot was a quick drive from the motel, which was convenient during the day. The tiny television did have a nice selection of channels but who goes on a getaway to watch tv? The owner was pleasant, uber friendly with ideas for eateries in the area.
We paid aprox. $140/night and it seemed a bit steep for the lack of the basics.
The room smelled super funky, there weren’t enough pillows, the linen was suspect with stains, the bathroom was less than basic with no shelf to store toiletries, with fleeting water pressure, and breakfast was meager. Stale bagels and corn muffin-like wedges awaited us each morning. The coffee was okay I supposed. There was no seating for breakfast. The sad, unkempt pool was atop a hill with no walkway for access. After spotting a snake skin (small) nearby our room, I was nervous to walk up to the pool via the grassy area. The lounge chairs were outside the pool fence so, you can imagine the size of the pool deck.
We stayed for two nights. The hotel is less than 4 miles from the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is a old school motel with wonderful views of the lake. The bed was very comfortable and the owners were right on site and very kind and helpful. If you use the pool be sure to use the steps on the far side. Although we did not use them they have free kayaks and canoes for use for guests. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and would go back. They are much better priced then many of the lake front hotels or the hotels in downtown Cooperstown. We went the week before Labor day and the area was crowded with tourists and little leaguers. We were close to town but far enough away to relax.
Priced nicely, views of the lake, swimming pool, friendly staff, good room with good beds (though nothing special here). Bench in front of room to gaze across at lake. Nice little continental breakfast. Kind of a classic old-school style place if you're going to Cooperstown!
