We didn't know this area at all and were unsure whether we should have booked a hotel nearer Cooperstown itself, but the Bayside Inn proved to be perfect. It's only about 15 minutes drive from the town and less to the trolley stop. This means that you are away from the crowds and can relax in a more peaceful environment.
We had a room with a balcony and although the weather wasn't great during our stay, we did have the opportunity to sit on the balcony having breakfast, looking out over the surrounding trees and the beautiful lake. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom fittings all looked new and everything was spotless.
Service at Reception at both check-in and check-out was friendly and helpful, and there was plenty of information about the local area.
For the accommodation provided, especially the balcony and lake view, the Bayside is excellent value for money and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing retreat near the bustle of Cooperstown.More
