The Inn At Cooperstown

16 Chestnut Street , Cooperstown, NY 13326 USA (Show map)


The Inn, spotlessly clean and hospitably staffed, provides a peaceful respite in the heart of the beautiful village of Cooperstown. The 18 guest rooms, each with private bath, flat panel televisions, wifi, and air conditioning, are tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished. Pleasant sitting rooms invite guests to leisurely enjoy television or a book by the warming fire. In the warm weather relax in rocking chairs on a sweeping veranda that is shaded by 100 year-old maple trees. Off street parking. One fully accessible guest room. Open year round. Children of all ages welcome.

Our favorite place away from home...

5 on June 28, 2016

We have stayed at The Inn at Cooperstown for 15 years now. We try to go every year. When we started our stays they didn't have tvs and we didn't mind at all. The upgrades through years are good for modern amenities but the Inn still keeps it's B&B charm for those who want to unwind from all the hustle in our world. The owners and staff are friendly, courteous and have never let us down. We love that we get to share about of their daily lives if only for a few nights a year. Walking distance to everything you need, excellent amount of off street parking. Breakfast is simple but quality for a B&B. We will continue to keep The IAC our place to be in Cooperstown.

Lovely "Mini-moon"

My husband and I and one of our favorite couples stayed two nights at the Inn last November the weekend after we married. What an absolutely lovely B & B with a fresh breakfast, a calm ambience and a beautiful setting. Cooperstown is such a little gem, with wonderful restaurants, museums and breweries. (We don't do baseball, and we still love it here). The hosts were extremely accommodating and we felt very welcome.

The Inn to stay in Cooperstown!

Went for a quick winter retreat to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. This Inn sets the bar for others to aspire to. The rooms were spotless and well appointed, the Innkeepers and Staff were so very welcoming and accomodating and the location doesn't get better. The breakfast is more than adequate and delicious...The only "issue" I had was the fact that not all rooms have television yet - but they are addressing it. I have been to enough bed and breakfast to know a gem when I see one. Don't hesitate to stay here.

B and Bs not for everyone.

An excellent B and B, with great location and staff attitude. But don't go there if you're expecting a hotel. If your emphasis is rocking on their veranda or feeling the charm of an old-style setting, then by all means, pay up (boy, will you) and check in.. But if you're used to a hotel, stay far away from this place. Room has no TV, is small, and has thin walls and ceilings. I had the couple above me walk a couple of marathons with constant pounding coming through from above for most of one night. I could also clearly hear conversations of others in the hallway. And, the room became frigid from a lack of heat. The only thing in line with a decent hotel was the rate, $200 per night. Just be aware of what a B and B offers, and if those intangible things are of value to you. They absolutely weren't to me, and despite the great attitude of the staff, it was incredibly overpriced. This regretful loss of so much dollars was my fault. I didn't know what I was buying. Now that I do, I'll go back to the Best Westerns or Holiday Inn Expresses. They, incidentally, would have cost me half of what I shelled out here. This is an excellent Bed and Breakfast. I just would have been much better off at an average or so-so hotel or motel, many of which are located just minutes away,

Innkeeper Response
We are so disappointed to hear that you would prefer a chain hotel over the beautiful accommodations at the inn. Our meticulously maintained historical hotel, located in a prime spot in the village, is a memorable highlight for the great majority of out guests. FYI, all of our guest rooms have flat panel televisions.

My husband and I stayed 2 night, I will never stay there again this inn is in The Registry Book, it is to be up scale place. I couldn't get water or ice, the entire TV, room book room was locked at 10:00pm. Breakfast what a joke the second day we went to the bakery on the corner if was fresher then there. I thought the coffee was left over from the day before. no kidding people. The grounds were terrible, the parking lot was terrible. I would have better to sleep outside in a tent. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry to read that this guest did not enjoy their stay at the inn. We wish they would have come to us with their issues as we are typically able to resolve any problems on the spot. This in turn allows the guest to enjoy the rest of their stay in Cooperstown. We are perplexed by the comments regarding ice and water as our front desk area is staffed until 11 pm every night and sometimes later during the summer months which are high season in Cooperstown. The sitting rooms, where the television, games, books, etc. are located, are never locked. These rooms do not have doors. The Inn at Cooperstown serves an expanded continental breakfast that includes a hot egg entrée, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, assorted cereals and granola, homemade muffins, toast (fresh bread from a local bakery), assorted juices, tea and fresh brewed coffee. The coffee is purchased from a local roaster who has the most highly regarded coffee shop in the area. The inn brews the coffee fresh every morning. Our muffins are also baked fresh every morning just before breakfast starts. We are disappointed that this guest did not enjoy the breakfast that we typically receive many favorable comments on. In regards to the grounds for the inn and the parking lot, again we are perplexed by these comments as we have never in our 6 years of ownership heard anything but positive comments on the park-like front lawn of the inn and spacious off-street parking. Our lawn is maintained weekly by a professional lawn care service and the flowers and plants are the product of the best local green house and professionally planted in the window boxes and hanging baskets that adorn our beautiful front porch.

Anniversary Stay

4.4 on August 14, 2009

We enjoyed our stay at the Cooperstown Inn-our kind of experience in a quaint little village surrounded by baseball memorabilia. Everything is in walkling distance from the Inn and very easy to find. The dinner recommendation down the street was particulary fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed our 36th Anniversary as a result!

Romantic Wedding Anniversary

4.0 on July 22, 2009

We made reservations at the Inn and were told that the room would be small and had twin beds. We were not told how far away the beds were. This did not make for a romantic weekend.And the room was also for handicap visitors. We enjoyed breakfast and the visitors we ate with were wonderful. The morning staff was excellent. They were always ready to assist us and keep the Inn running very smoothly.The entire Inn is beautiful--our room could have been better but we had to take what was left. The Inn is very close to the Otesaga Inn--where we had dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary at the Hawkeye Grill overlooking the lake. It was excellent. The setting was incredible. The menu was excellent--worth the expense.We enjoyed our stay in Cooperstown. We also had a lovely evening at the Glimmerglass Opera

The Very Best in Cooperstown

5 on January 14, 2009

We are frequent visitors to Cooperstown and have tried a variety of the other inns, b&bs and even the large resort hotel. The Inn at Cooperstown is now our only choice for lodging. This property "sparkles" not only physically but also from a hospitality services stand point. The owners are sharp and have a day-to-day presence here and it shows. The staff is well-trained, very friendly and very knowledgable. The property, guest rooms, and amenitites are continuously well-maintained and updated. The guest rooms and bathrooms are spotless. Breakfast is simply delicious and you have your choice between a hot entree and healthy options like yogurt and fruit... or you can have all! The location can't be beat as it is just steps from Main Street and a very short walk to the Hall of Fame. They have plenty of off-street parking with a newly expanded parking lot. As far as their room rates go they are extremely competitive with the other properties in town who are at the same level (which is not many). You get what you pay for and you simply can't go wrong with The Inn at Cooperstown.

Friendly comfortable atmosphere. Quiet and relaxing. I recently stayed during a business trip. Location was convenient for both work and walking around the village in the evening. Staff was pleasant and helpful. I would highly reccomend staying at this facility.
