“Scenic Beauty”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

I recently retired and was given a weekend stay at the Diastole B&B along with passes to the baseball hall of fame as part of my retirement gift. As we drove into the Cooperstown area I was in awe of the spectacular scenery, the B&B sits on approximately 20 acres about 7 miles from downtown Cooperstown. There are five bedrooms and we slept upstairs in the Adirondack room, a beautifully furnished room with a most comfortable bed and French doors that open to a deck that looks upon Lake Ostego. Our hosts Brigitte and Lou were both welcoming and eager to answer any and all questions about local attractions and restaurants. Brigitte prepared breakfast each morning (delicious) and we ate in the very confortable dining room with a magnificant view of the lake. We will always remember our wonderful trip to Cooperstown (Baseball Hall of Fame was great) and our most relaxing and enjoyable stay at Diastole.

We were in town for a wedding and were directed to this B & B. It's in a beautiful location overlooking Lake Otsego. We were in the Master Bedroom that was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. There's a deck behind almost all the rooms. Our bathroom was ensuite. There were four options for breakfast (selected off a menu the previous evening); the fresh fruit cup was genuinely fresh. The hosts are very genial and helpful. Only two things kept this from being a five--the hot water in the bathroom sink was only a dribble (a note said the plumber had been called) and the heat in the room was regulate as the days were fairly warm but the gas fireplaces had already been started and the pilot light provided more heat than necessary. We opened a window and got along. A great place if you want to get away.

We chose Diastole for our Glimmerglass Opera weekend mainly because of the lake view and the thoughtful and accurate way that the rooms were described on their website. To our delight, the hardworking innkeepers Brigitte and Lou were also friendly and accomodating. Plus they prepare a great communal breakfast. Now we're thinking of excuses to return.

Room Tip: There is a spa on the first floor deck-don't forget your bathing suit. While visiting Cooperstow...

This is a very special place. Nestled up in the hills above Lake Otsega and only 10 minutes outside of the hustle and bustle of Cooperstown... this is a great B+B. The house feels like it was just built -- almost brand new. Beautiful adirondack style furnishings. The view from our private suite was spectacular. The balcony's all look out onto the lake. The setting is quiet and peaceful. We had a beautiful sunset and great stars to see sitting out on our deck. I read a book all afternoon while my family watched baseball in town. I wish I could have stayed a week. Bridget is a great hostess. Delicious breakfast. I loved her homemade granola. I wish I could have stayed a week. Not really the place to go w/ small children.

Opted to stay here in place of hotel ..... best choice. The location was beautiful and relaxing. The room was immaculate. We travel frequently and cleanliness ranks high on our list of importance in a room. Loved that there were hardwood floors. Could not beat the view from the deck off our room. Bridget was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the Cooperstown area.

Awesome bed and breakfast! My husband and I went to Cooperstown for our 25th wedding anniversary and spent 3 nights at Diastole; it was beyond expectations. Brigette and Lou were wonderful. They were so welcoming. We'd go back in a heart beat!

My husband, 17 year old daughter and I are heading back to Diastole Bed and Breakfast in Cooperstown for our third stay. We are really looking forward to spending four days in this tranquil hideaway, looking out onto Lake Otesago, while navigating through Baseball Hall of Fame's Induction Weekend. Lou and Brigitte are exceptional hosts who make you feel right at home the moment you arrive and until you leave. The rooms are beautifully decorated, each with unique features - Brigitte was kind enough to show us all the rooms including the addition - that enable guests to rest and relax. Each day you have at least four choices for breakfast, a bonus when you have a teenager. Brigitte went out of her way to organize parking and reservations for meals for us so that we did not have to compete the rest of the crowd. We can't say enough about them. So if you are interested in going to a charming town, stay at Diastole but make sure you make reservations as they get booked quickly.
