We truly enjoyed our stay at 42 Montgomery Bed & Breakfast Cherry Valley, New York more than any other trip we have taken. It possessed the elegance, hospitality and homey comfort that made our stay a must repeat. The renowned Glimmerglass Opera, the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, and the Fenimore and Farmer*s exquisite museums are all short... More

Just spent a lovely night in a charming, clean and quiet "upfront" room at 42 Montgomery. Strolled over to the local Rose and Kettle restaurant for a delicious dinner. Enjoyed my fresh-out-of-the-oven Dutch Baby at breakfast. The proprietor, Melanie, was exceptionally helpful and thoughtful. I would definitely stay there again next time I'm in the area.

Small rooms with small TV's A little noisy upfront by road. Room rates a little high for the off season. Breakfast almost non-existent, Just a small apple pie, coffee, tea and sausage.... More

Wow! What a shock! I served an individual upside-down apple pancake in a deep-dish (like an onion soup bowl). I make it from scratch with lot's of fresh chopped apples, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins and walnuts. Then I pour a special pancake batter over the top and bake until it becomes brown and the contents are bubbling through. I... More

It is a unique and wonderful thing to show up at an unknown persons home and find a friend waiting there for you. The room was fabulous and attention to small details were much appreciated. The bed and bedding was luxurious. A very important feature for me! I had told Melanie that I only eat organic and she went to... More

We spent 2 nights at Melanie Crawford's lovely Bed & Breakfast at 42 Montgomery in Cherry Valley ( near Cooperstown). What a treat. The B & B is totally charming. Our rooms were large and nicely furnished and Melanie is a wondeful hostess. The breakfasts themselves were terrific and often featured local products - a special strawberry jam, locally grown...

We really enjoyed the bed and breakfast while our son was playing in Cooperstown. It was tasefully decorated, comfortable and quaint. Melanie makes a delicious pancake and cinamon apple soufle in the morning. There is a wonderful nearby restarant for dinner (Rose and Kettle). This is a relaxing area...enjoy!
