Hi, What can I say about this Inn? I would give it 5 stars for customer service ( changing pre-paid reservation was very easy ). It has a 5 star location: 1 block to the downtown with easy parking! The breakfast was excellent: selection was very limited, but so tasty :-) My only complain was about the VERY OLD and...

I loved my room, the Birch Room, with its own separate sitting room and library during my stay at the White House Inn, while attending the Glimmerglass Festival. Arriving late at night, mine host, Ed Landers, had kindly arranged for signs to show me to my room on the ground floor! Next morning, he was the first to greet me...

This inn was built in 1835 and retains a warmth and charm the is the result of the level of detail in every room. From check in by Josh, with tips on what was available for dinner options, to the outstanding breakfast supervised by the owner, Ed, the whole stay was perfect. Several comfortable common rooms for guests to meet....

Location is excellent for everything downtown. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and the breakfast was enjoyable too. We would stay here again. No complaints. Several common areas to talk with other people and off street parking.

Stayed in a small apartment in a beautiful Victorian house, very clean , good location and a delicious breakfast ! Owners were great. Will be returning soon Cooperstown is so much more than the baseball hall of fame . Be sure to visit the Empire State Carousel at the Farmer's Museum.

Beautiful home, gracious and charming proprietors. Ask Ed about his connection with many Hall of Famers and their families for the last 20 years. For a baseball fan, his experiences are priceless. Ask about Phil (and his brother Joe) Niekro and he'll put a smile on your face.

The White House Inn was our very first experience for my wife and I with a bed & breakfast and I only hope our future stays at B&B's are as good as this stay has been. Ed Landers and his staff truly made us feel at home and the room and location to the many points of interest get a...

My husband and I loved staying at the White House this past week. Exceptional service! Loved the breakfasts every morning. Will definitely tell others about our wonderful stay and plan to come back again when the leaves turn. Thank you for your kindness.

Our stay was very pleasant. Our room, the Green Room, was very comfortable and the breakfast on each of the two was delicious..fresh fruit, juice....eggs, bacon, fried potatoes, some nice cakes..great coffee. Light on the carbs, too, which is a refreshing change of pace from the starchy fare you get at some B&B's the Inn was only half a block...

The service was very good. The breakfast was excellent. However, the bed in the room were very old and the springs were basically coming out. It was not a pleasant night's sleep. There was also a pill and some other random stuff under the bed from the last guest. I do not think the room had been cleaned properly.
