Rose & Thistle Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 29 Cooperstown B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Returned here after two years and still love it. In fact we recommended it to neighbors--it was their first-ever B&B experience and they enjoyed it too. Patti and Steve are so friendly that it's like visiting cousins you've always liked and haven't seen in awhile. It's great to have off-street parking and be able to walk into town (where parking can be tight). Also the proximity to the excellent Bocca Restaurant, right across the street, is a huge plus.

Room Tip: "Desiree's Room" on 2nd floor had a lovely bay window and side window, thus good cross...

Dear Marion and Bernie,

Thanks so much for your kindness. It was great to see you both again for this opera season.
Another big thanks for referring Mark and Maggie, your neighbors. We enjoyed meeting them.

We hope to see you and Bernie here next year for the opera. In the meantime, stay well and be safe.

We felt like family from the moment we arrived! Patti and Steve are the most welcoming innkeepers...there to assist you in finding restaurants and activities. Our room was charming and very clean. Cable tv and wi-fi were included. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful! The area is perfect for any leisure and cultural activities, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the Glimmerglass Opera to name a few. Otsego Lake is just minutes away. What a lovely experience!

I enjoyed my stay at the Rose & Thistle B&B. Patti and Steve, the owners, were very friendly and gracious. The breakfasts that were served were wonderful and all their recommendations for eating in Cooperstown were very good. My room was comfortable and my bathroom, spacious.

They gave hints about seeing the Hall of Fame which turned out to our advantage.

Patti and Steve own a small dog named Morgan. Sweet dog - friendly on your terms

I would like to go to Cooperstown again and stay at the Rose & Thistle.

Thank you, Patti & Steve

Room Tip: I liked my room on the second floor.

Dear Claudia,

It was a pleasure to have you and your son Peter visit us in July. We hope he arrived back to the west coast safely.

Be sure to know that when I visit the DC area in the future, I will be calling on you to join me for lunch/dinner and view the sights of your great area.

Thank you for the wonderful review, much appreciated.

Stay well, be safe

This is my first stay at a B&B and Steve and Patti set the standard high for any comparison at any other that I will stay. They make you feel like family instead of just a regular guest. The different breakfasts each morning were yummy and the room was perfect. If anyone wants to stay at a B&B in Cooperstown, be sure to call here first.

After a horrible experience our first night in town for a wedding, the Chamber of Commerce helped us find a room an recommended the Rose & Thistle-WHAT A WONDERFUL CHANGE!!! Patti is fabulous, she is warm, welcoming, an a great resource for places to eat and things to see off the beaten track!
In addition, she made an amazing breakfast including fresh fruit, amazing French toast and great coffee! We really enjoyed meeting the other guests at breakfast and lingered longer than we planned as everyone was put in such a friendly mood thanks to Patti and her warm hospitality!
I don't know if we will go back to Cooperstown any time soon, but if we do I know where we will stay!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the apartment at the place next door and it was wonderful.

Dear Lynn and Joe,

Thanks a million for the wonderful review. WE were so glad to be able to accommodate you at the last minute for the wedding you were attending.

We always have great guests staying with us and they all seem to mesh together and have a fabulous breakfast experience. We hope that if you are ever in the Cooperstown area again that we will see you. And likewise, if we are ever in the DC area, we will make it a point to touch base with you.

Best of luck with your non-profit organization. I think it is a wonderful opportunity for seniors who want to remain in their homes and not have to resort to assisted living or nursing home facilities.

Continued success and good health.

stay well, be safe

Fondly
Patti and Steve

Spent 3 nights here in early May. Was made to feel at ease right away. Had great conversation with both Steve and Patti. Food was excellent and their suggestions for local restaurants were on the money. Would stay here again without a doubt.
