I find that selections based on large numbers of trip adviser praises are usually a good choice. Same goes for this nice family run B&B on Chestnut Street in Cooperstown. We were three adults sharing a comfortable large room and bath on the top floor. We enjoyed the personal attention of the hosts and the great breakfast (which is different... More

Hi Helmut, Joyce and Laura, Thanks for the kind words about us and the accommodations and breakfasts. The road work is unfortunate but probably the only time of the year that water, sewer and storm drains can be done. The road crew assures us that the digging is done and new curbing, sidewalks and asphalt will be done very soon... More

As a frequent B & B guest, this is a gem of a destination! The accomodations were tastfully done, the room is quaint and comfortable (the bed was as good as my own matress!). The breakfast was scrumptious, and for the early risers there was coffee waiting for you nice and early. But this was more than a B &... More

Great advice as to where to go for dinner, how to get the trolley, and more. Breakfast was a culinary delight! Make sure to let Patti know if you... More

I am a big B&B fan, but honestly not generally a Victorian B&B doily type of inn fan. I’ll give the Rose and Thistle a pass on this one because the place is adorable, Cute, quaint, cozy and spotlessly clean.. The bed was comfy, the breakfast delicious and the innkeepers a hoot. Coffee was out earlier than promised first thing... More

My partner and I just spent a lovely weekend at this B&B, owned and run by Patti and Steve D'Esposito. They were great hosts, with lots of local information, and great restaurant suggestions.
