“Everything about this B & B was perfect!”
Reviewed 1 November 2010

The hosts, Patti and Steve, were very personable, quite knowledgeable about the area, and offered suggestions that we found incredibly helpful. Steve's breakfasts were absolutely delicious and Patti's service couldn't have been better. The inn is just outside of the main street of town, maybe a half a mile, so it is more than close enough without being in the middle of hustle and bustle. The rooms were clean, beautifully appointed, and offered comfort in obvious and tiny, special ways. We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone!

The Rose and Thistle – Patti and Steve welcome you to their B & B with open arms as if you were friends they have not seen in a long-time. They are so welcoming and open that you feel right at ease within a few minutes. They take the time to sit down and explain Cooperstown to you, the restaurants, the HOF, the Farmer’s Market, etc… The breakfast were fantastic, upon waking, your nostrils are treated to the warm aromas of bacon and whatever the breakfast that morning. For us, the first day was an apple pancake that my husband is still raving about. The second morning, a superb zucchini quiche. Both with all the extras and fixing’s...We can only rave about The Rose and Thistle!

Our stay at the Rose and Thistle B & B was very enjoyable. It was our first trip to Cooperstown NY. Patti and Steve not only were superb host, but were very informative of the history of the town and soundring attractions to see. They were very warm and friendly, and we had nice conversations with them. It was like staying with close friends. Our room was fresh and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast they provided during our 3 day stay were outstanding. Looking forward to a return vist.

Our first trip to Cooperstown was of course to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame. It was a dream of mine for almost 40 years and finally to get there, it was awesome. The highlight of my trip. Spent 2 days there to soak it all in. We stayed at The Rose and Thistle Bed and Breakfast and what a lovely place. The inn keepers, Patti and Steve D'Esposito were the perfect hosts and charming people. Very intimate and family oriented and those breakfasts they served. Phenomenal. My husband and I recommend it to anyone when they're visiting Cooperstown and looking for accomodations. You will not be dissapointed.

I recently visited Cooperstown with my mom to visit the Hall of Fame. The Rose & Thistle B&B was fabulous. I have stayed in many B&B's, and this place had the best breakfast. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating. Our room was nicely decorated had everything we needed (private bath, TV, alarm clock, iron). The breakfast table was the hub of activity and entertainment and in the morning with the hosts chatting with the guests (no stuffy or awkward conversation moments). We had many laughs at the table. Also, the porch outside provided a relaxing place to rest, read a book, or converse with the other guests and the hosts. I would go back just for the inn!

Also, after getting lost on the way up, Patti provided me the most exact directions on how to get home - saved me tons of time! Ignore the GPS!

I love to read about all the choices when I go to stay somewhere and am happy when i have made "the perfect choice":) Our stay at the Rose and Thistle was just that. Patty and Steve are big in personality and they make you feel at home from the first minute. Patty has a great sense of humor which adds to the fun and Steve is the cook and mini historian and guide. They sit you down when you arrive and give you a list of recommendations and, if you want, they will call and make dining reservations for you. We chose Nicoletta's and the Blue Mingo..both were great, but if you have only one pick, I would go to the Blue Mingo. ....it is set on the lake and was very enjoyable. The breakfasts were wonderful, homemade by Steve. They are a little bit off the beaten track but only about a block from the trolley that goes all around the area, so there is no problem in getting into town. The BEST advice of the visit came from Steve who urged us to go to the Baseball Hall of Fame two hours before closing on our arrival day as the tickets would also be good for the next day. Those two hours on the third floor of the museum were the BEST....very peaceful and we could take our time with no crowds even in peak season. We sat alone and watched the old Abbot and Costello routine, "Who's on First" two times and we were the ONLY ones in the seated area! So thank you Steve for that. We had our ten year old grandson with us and there was no problem for Patty and Steve to have a youngster along ...some B&B's do not seem to welcome children at all but that was no problem here. One of my best memories was sitting on the porch with Patty and talking about the people in our lives that we have lost....we became quick soul sisters:)

My husband, son, his friend and I just got back from our first visit to Cooperstown. We stayed at the Rose and Thistle Bed and Breakfast and what a wonderful choice we made by staying there! Everything about the place was fantastic! We stayed in Saras room which was beautiful, big, clean and you really felt like you were at home! The breakfast was delicious! My son loved the fresh fruit, when we got back home that was the first thing he asked for! And what can we say about the owners Patti and Steve! They were such great hosts! They open up their home to you, and make you feel so comfortable like you have known them for years! We also enjoyed the wonderful conversations! Cant wait to go back next year!
