Lovely atmosphere, convenient location

4.2 on June 12, 2015

This property is well manicured (indoor and out), the ambiance is inviting, and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful! We loved the convenience of walking to the center of Cooperstown, but it was still plenty quiet at night. The bed was fairly comfortable and breakfast was good.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for choosing the Landmark Inn! We love making converts of folks that don't normally stay in B&B's. 35 years ago, Fred and I took a chance on our first B&B (back in the dreaded doily days) and it was a spectacular experience. Today, top B&B's like the Landmark are more Boutique Hotel. Our luxury robes, en suite amenities, and concierge service exceed offerings from "fine resorts". In fact, the Landmark sells more sets of our exquisite sheets to guests than we sell Hall of Fame tickets! And that's a LOT! Come see us again!


Perfect stay at Landmark Inn

The Inn is visually lovely inside and out! The breakfasts were delicious and the Innkeeper and her daughter and their helpers were all fun! My entire family stayed there and everyone was happy! I highly recommend it!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for Choosing the Landmark and for your kind review! That's what we love to hear, "And everyone was happy!" Come back soon!


Perfect Weekend

5 on June 09, 2015

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and were so happy with everything. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The room was beautiful and very clean. The food was delicious. It was a bit pricey but worth every penny. My boyfriend has some food allergies, and Robin and the Chef were very careful in preparing his meals. He thought the Boursin eggs were the best he had ever had. I personally thought the lemon Rosemary French toast was the best breakfast I had ever had. It truly was a perfect weekend! Thank you to all at the Landmark Inn for making it such a wonderful experience!

Innkeeper Response
Wow! Chef Vita is a very happy lady this morning! Did you know that she is the only dedicated B&B Chef in Cooperstown? And that our breakfast is made on site, farm to table, each morning? Our guests have come to enjoy that wholesome value and dedication to their stay. After all, who wants a buffet of powdered eggs and Cocoa Puffs on vacation? Come see us soon!


Most enjoyable stay at the Landmark Inn

5 on June 01, 2015

The room was lovely as it was beautifully decorated with clean lines. Our hosts greeted us with such kind attention both at our arrival and at breakfast. The meal was wonderful and we would readily return in a heartbeat. A great place to stay while in wonderful Cooperstown.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the full 5-star review! We learned a long time ago that how a guest is greeted is the signature of hospitality. We strive to greet each guest at the door and again at breakfast. It's that attention to the guest that differentiates us. Thank you for celebrating that! Please come see us soon!


Lovely & Gracious Hospitality

5 on May 26, 2015

My husband and I spent two nights at the Landmark Inn. We were met by Robin, owner innkeeper. I felt I knew her before arriving because she had been so personable when I called to make a reservation. The Inn is lovely, comfortable, inviting, a home away from home. Breakfast was delicious!! Would highly recommend.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! Fred wants to know why you didn't feel like you knew him? (but I think we both know why :) The Landmark guest experience starts long before arrival. We want our guests to walk through the door knowing there's no stress here, that their dinner reservations, dietary restrictions, tee-times, opera tickets, boat rental, wine and strawberries, museum passes, etc have all been arranged. And only in a fine B&B like the Landmark do you choose your actual room, so you know precisely what you accommodations will look and feel like. Come see us soon.


Would Stay Here Again and Again

5 on May 20, 2015

Stayed here in 2009 and saw that it had been rennovated. The rooms seem larger and brighter than before and the bedding is top of the line along with all the amenities. The location is great because it is within walking distance to town and the Baseball Hall of Fame which is important if you go during the summer months.

Innkeeper Response
And we hope you do! We loved sharing the updates to the inn with you, including the magnificent Campanella Suite (perhaps the finest accommodation in Cooperstown) with its restored original fireplace, spectacular marble dream shower for two, luxurious king bed, private sitting porch, etc. We have recycled the old TVs with flatscreen, replaced quilts with designer linens (our sheets have a bazillion thread count!) donated the spooky art of unhappy victorian children and replaced with prints like our limited edition Wyeth "Love in the Afternoon" which is hung in the dining room. Restored porches, ceilings, driveways, all to create a singular guest experience. We look forward to your return.


What a pleasant stay!

Great place and very nice owner and staff. I especially like the outside entrances to your room.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you. (Casey says hello!) Many guests like the convenience of our suites with have private entrances. It's just another reason to choose the Landmark! We're certainly glad you did. Warm regards, Robin Schneider, Owner

Nice Inn

4.2 on April 30, 2015

We stayed at the Landmark for 2 nights for my HB's birthday so we could go to the baseball hall of fame. The Inn was very nice, quaint, clean. Rooms very tastefully done,food was great and the innkeper was very nice and helpful. Didn't have hot water in the AM for both days we were there which was kind of frustrating given the cost of the rooms. That was really the only issue we had.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review and for referencing your experience with hot water. It is not an issue we have experienced in the past and apologize for the inconvenience. Thankfully, your bringing it to our attention before you left resulted in a call to our plumber, which resulted in some modifications to assure the issue is now resolved. Please come see us again.
