My husband and I returned today form a two night stay at the The Inn at Cooperstown for their Bed & Brew Package. We were looking forward to the trip since finding it online, as the brewery makes some of my husband's (and now my) favorite beers. We were treated so wonderfully from the moment we checked in until the moment we left. Upon arrival, we were given a tour of the property, told to please ask if we wanted direction or recommendations to any of the area attractions and restaurants and escorted to our room. A huge plus was the ability to make coffee, tea and cocoa at anytime in the tastefully decorated parlor and sitting area. We took advantage of the free draft beer with an entree coupon that came with the room and went to The Pit right around the corner. A 1lb lobster for $15 and a free drink AND perfectly prepared? Sure thing!
The room was cute and comfortable. We opted for a king size bed, which had a more than acceptable mattress for my bad back. The wifi was fast and worked just fine with no glitches. There was no tv in the room, which was expected and preferable, as we spent no time in the room other than sleeping and preparing to go out. Most importantly, the room was kept warm and comfortable, as this was January, after all.
The craft beer night was memorable and comfortable. The brewers from Ommegang are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet, and together with the owners, Marc and Sherrie, you could tell that they truly enjoy what they do and why they do it. This was really my first "group" type weekend and many of the guests came together, or had met at previous years. I know why. We'll be telling all our friends to meet us there next time :)
I was surprised to read some of the lesser starred reviews about the free breakfast. This isn't a restaurant. The fruit was fresh and plentiful, the baked goods and bread were delicious and fresh and the quiche was perfectly cooked. Coffee, tea, several choices of juice. If you can't find enough that you like in that, than really you need to re-evaluate why you would stay in a bed and breakfast to begin with.
I would say the trip to Ommegang was the trip of a lifetime, but as we intend to come back again and again, that's really not true. The food was 5-star, the service was 5-star, the complimentary gifts were 5-star and when you put everything together, for this thrifty mom, you really do get your money's worth.
Thank you Marc & Sherrie and please thank your staff for us for the wonderful job they did to make this getaway one to remember!
