“Cooperstown visit”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

What a wonderful visit we had here and the accommodations were outstanding. Patty and Steve were outstanding hosts. Party's overview and introduction to the town and area made us feel right at home with outstanding recommendations on restaurants and attractions. The breakfast was outstanding and each morning created an atmosphere for lively conversation amongst the guests and hosts. We were very pleased with our accommodations,

My wife and I went to Cooperstown in April with our 4 1/2 year old grandson and stayed at the Rose & Thistle - we were so happy we did! We enjoyed the huge bedroom and furnishings, Patti's warmth and personal attention, and Steve's fantastic breakfasts! A wonderful place, and we look forward to a return trip!

Dear Nancy, Ron and Bailey,

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, especially since you were supposed to visit us at the same time that Hurricane Sandy was to arrive in your home state. We were happy to apply your previous deposit for this stay.

It was our pleasure meeting you and your grandson.

Stay well

Fondly
Patti and Steve

What a wonderful oasis of hospitality nestled in the place where baseball began. Steve and Patti ( and Morgan ) our hosts were wonderful. Their B and B was just what we wanted. Extremely comfortable rooms with breakfasts to die for. Although it rained for a good part of our stay and some Hall of Fame activities were cancelled to our disappointment, we were not disappointed with anything about THE ROSE AND THISTLE. We have stayed in many B and B's. At some you are guests. Here you are family. Maybe because of my attitude ( its not an accent Patti).
If you are reading this review, you are probably considering a bed and breakfast in Cooperstown. Don't delay. Book it now before you get shut out. We are looking forward to returning. I will bring the Bagels for you and treats for Morgan.
Thanks for the recipe you gave Robin.

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 every day, prepared by the hostess). Why not 5 stars then? The only downside is the proximity to Chestnut Street, which is a little busy and noisy. A truck passing by has the impact of a small earthquake. On top of the standard street nuisance, there is road work going on right now, with blocked lanes and traffic congestion. Not a big deal, but a bit of a botheration.

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 and the road will be free of noise and congestion.

We hope you had a wonderful reunion with you daughters in MA. Stay well, safe journey back home.

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 & B, it was as if you were visiting long lost friends! Patti & Steve made you feel welcomed from the moment you walked in the door! They were beyond insightful, from the nicest restaurants to other places in the area to visit. The walk to the Hall of Fame is 15 minutes - or grab a convenient Trolley ($2.00 per person for the whole day). When you visit The Rose & Thistle, please send my best to Patti and Steve!!

Patti is VERY cordial, friendly, and helpful! We stayed in "Sara's Room" and it was wonderful - large size, comfy large beds with huge down comforters, and a great private bath!

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 have any dietary requests as soon as you arrive.

Overall a great time!

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 in the morning and I got to spend a lovely hour in front of the fireplace drinking coffee ensconced in a huge chair catching up with a good book. I wish I could spend every morning like that. I was in Cooperstown for a seminar and wish I had longer to spend. I’ll be back with my husband to explore the area one of these days soon and I already know where I will be staying.
