I had the pleasure of staying at The White House Inn, 46 Chestnut St., whose staff is most welcoming and provides the richest of hospiality to be found in town. The Inn is right across Chestnut St. from Doubleday Field, where they used to play the Hall of Fame game each year, and where on most days during the baseball season you can find baseball games being played on the field all day. Baseball lovers will love the Inn's autograph wall with signatures from everyone from Babe Ruth's granddaughter to Sparky Anderson and tons more. For those that love the rich warmth of old colonial living, big comfortable beds, privacy like it was you own home, and a social environment of your choosing, you can't miss. The really lucky ones will be able to book a spot in the carriage house: A real carriage house from another time with two beautiful bedrooms, each with its own sliding door access to a restful patio right by the pool, and a shared social area and kitchenette, plankwood floors and an ambiance too tough to describe with justice, make this my choice when I stay there. I have been there twice and will return, each year I hope, when the winter winds are blowing, the fire places are lit and the magic of the Inn is palpable. Ed Landers, the innkeeper, is a walking storehouse of Cooperstown history as well as the best travel advisor you can ask for. Tell Ed what things you're interested in and he'll tell you where to go to enjoy them. And finally, breakfast is beyond belief. Ed, his wife Margie and her sister Pattie can work wonders in the kitchen as well as for your sense of comfort and welcome. More importantly, they make you feel like part of their family! I can't say too much in praise of these folks and their establishment. So, if you're into Cooperstown and you like B & Bs, The White House Inn is for you. Take it from The Wiseman, you'll be glad you stayed there!

Great meals freiendly atmosphere, make this the bed and breakfast to stay while in the Cooperstown NY area. Ed (the Innkeeper) and his entire staff were very helpful, providing us with areas of interest in the area. I have stayed there twice thus far and plan to return at least once a year to visit the area, which has so much to offer everyone. If you are going to stay anywhere in the Cooperstown area, The White House Inn is the place. Check out the Wall of Fame during your stay.

We recently stayed at the White House Inn and have to say that it was the best experience ever! The owners and staff are absolutely fabulous and the breakfasts are unbelievable. We can not wait to go back. We stayed in the Red Room and it was a king bed at that time. We felt like family from the first and regretted having to leave. We can not recommend the White House Inn highly enough.
