This was our second year taking a weekend trip up to Cooperstown, NY and staying at The Willow Tree Inn. John and Kim are such fun and inviting people I would love to stay an entire week with them. Their inn is extremely clean and the breakfast they serve is off the charts. Plenti of activities to do in the area including the baseball hall of fame, Howe and secret caverns and Sharon Springs/Beekman 1802.

We did drive past the Inn once while looking for it, but we found it the second time we went by it. Hosts were very friendly, and they provided snacks and beverages gratis. Breakfast was especially good. Only issue was that our room on second floor faced the road and so there was some noise from the light amount of traffic on the road. Overall, it was a pleasant night's stay

John and Kim were very considerate hosts -- particularly helpful when I cam down with a slight fever and was heading to the local emergency room. (Kim's experience as a nurse should be added to the price of the rooms!)

the owners are friendly and welcoming. If you love a rustic, unique feel then this place is for you. It really is a hidden gem for a stay in Cooperstown. We loved how the original, rustic attributes were kept to the Inn. The breakfast is amazing. Homemade touch and they make what you want. It's a great opportunity to meet people from all over who stay there, and meet some neat people. For Cooperstown, it is worth the price and only about a 10 minute drive away. We loved it!

This is a cute & cozy little place off of the beaten path. A nice place to stay away from all the busy tourist area.

We enjoyed our stay at the Willow Tree Inn while visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame, Kim and John were great hosts. The Inn is a piece of Americana in a beautiful country setting. The room was comfortable. The breakfasts were terrific and they cook to order, whatever you would like. One of the reasons we selected this Inn was because we could bring our dog. Our stay was very comfortable and a great value.

When we arrived at this gorgeous antique home, our room was ready and John was immediately helpful in getting us settled. John and Kim were very friendly with tips of things to do and easy directions to locate those things, including Dreams Park (where our grandson was playing baseball). Breakfasts were freshly made and delicious! A charming bed and breakfast!

The hosts were very helpful with suggestions for dining in the area. Breakfast was quite good although basic and the same over both days of our stay. Homemade biscuits, jam, eggs any way, slab bacon, sausage, coffee, OJ, etc. King bed in room 5 was very comfortable. AC worked well. Property has a lovely pond. Free with fi didn't always work. Loved the homemade cookies in the afternoon, and refrigerator case full of fee soft drinks.

The room was cozy and warm, the bed was comfy, and the beverages, soaps, and breakfast provided were all nice, and the people were very friendly. All in all a great place. Only problem we had was that my fiancee's allergies were acting up a bit because they allow pets, but that's on us for not noticing that.

Breakfast was great. Room cramped and bathroom not as nice as anticipated. Overall, a nice stay.

Location is in the country but 15-minute drive from the Hall of Fame/town. John is a gracious, friendly host who unobtrusively made himself available to answer questions about the area and with whom to have interesting discussion. He's owned the B&B for 2 years and is making improvements. The home has potential but needs more work. It's a Civil War-era house in need of some maintenance but is indeed livable and comfortable. The common living room, complete with fireplace, is need of furniture update and more work. The backroom common space (where the TV is located and near kitchen) was inviting and comfortable. The breakfast was first-class and made to order, complete with homemade biscuits and jam. We had the room above the dining room (I think #5) facing the road. Didn't seem noisy, even though we kept the window open, probably because the road is not heavily traveled. Room is large but somewhat austere. Shower was small but workable (hosts provides toiletries). Scenery is beautiful and serene. It is quite reasonably priced and a good value.

We enjoyed our short stay very much. John was a wonderful host and the breakfast was outstanding! Our room was comfortable and cozy. We would consider staying there another night if we are in the Cooperstown area again!

The Willow Tree Inn is a delightful combination of old country and modern. Hosts John and Kim have updated the farm house of this old sheep farm without diluting the country feel . The rooms are lovely, the atmosphere friendly and inviting, and the food was wonderful - John's delicious biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, homemade goodies - absolutely a terrific introduction to the B&B scene. We loved it, and we'll be back soon.

I stayed over hall of fame weekend and it was a true highlight of my trip. Upon my arrival, Kim was about ten minutes from finishing some cupcakes she had just about baked. She walked me up to my room which was so cozy and the bed was so comfortable I could have stayed in the whole day and been happy. After a nap and a bath with some fabulous homemade soap, I took the short drive into town for food. The drive is beautiful as are the grounds at the b&b. after dinner, I watched some tv in my room and had a great night sleep. In the morning I woke to the smell of bacon. Downstairs Kim made me eggs and the fresh biscuits were the perfect way to start the day. I was so sad to leave and had such a great stay I wished I could have stayed longer. I will be back and look forward to John and Kim's wonderful hospitality.

We looked for a place in Cooperstown and were delighted with The Willow Tree Inn, a convenient 5-6 miles from the town. The owner was so helpful with tips for seeing the museums and other local attractions. We were warmly welcomed with cookies and soft drinks when we arrived, and the breakfast was simply outstanding. We had a great experience at this charming bed and breakfast.

Light. fluffy biscuits were the highlight of made-to-order breakfasts every day, and the cookies and brownies available in the afternoons and evenings were a nice touch also. Although the location required a drive into the heart of Cooperstown, we would recommend it to fellow travelers.

Charming B and B off the beaten track just outside of Cooperstown. We stayed in a lovely room with its own bath. John surprised us with a great breakfast made to order. The other guests were very congenial. We felt very much at home.

My husband enjoyed staying at the Willow Tree Inn very much--and this would be my choice next time I'm in Cooperstown. The friendliness and generosity of Kim and John was most welcome. I loved looking over 4-acres of rich, green land, with Willow Tree and pond. The breakfast they provided, with hot biscuits and homemade strawberry jam was truly 5 stars. They are pretty new in the B&B business so there may be a few kinks that may need to be ironed out, but they are very welcoming of any suggestions and I highly recommend The Willow Tree Inn.

Thanks to John and Kim my wife and I are 2 for 2 in our young B&B career. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great! If we ever go to Cooperstown again this is the place we'll stay...and this time probably bring our black lab! Thanks again!

Great time for our dog. They really made her welcome as she is well behaved. Breakfast was great (fresh fruit; biscuits, eggs to order, home fries and bacon) yum! However, the Inn is dated, the bedrooms were sparce, and the finish carpentry was hastily done. It is not romantic (then again we weren't looking for that). But I must say everything was clean and fresh and comfortable!! They've only been inn keepers for a year so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt here. And would go back again. John was especially accommodating and very nice. The online reservations where a plus too!!

When u travel with a dog, you sometimes have to settle for a stay. The Willow Tree Inn was so welcoming and warm on a frosty gray winter day. The innkeepers could not be sweeter and made our overnight memorable. The house is over 200 years old with much of the original floors. All the rooms have been remodeled with wifi and flat screen TV's.

My girlfriend and I were looking for a quiet B&B, where we could take a deep breath and lose the stress of the work week. The Willow Tree Inn was the perfect place. The hospitality was top-notch and the room was way past comfortable. After a deep, relaxing night of sleep, a delicious breakfast was the perfect way to end our stay. We will definitely be coming back!

This is one of the best bed & breakfasts we have stayed in. John & Kim are wonderful hosts.

My husband and I could not believe how homey and welcoming this place was. While we enjoyed tons of local scenery and tourist spots our best times were here. What a relaxing and fun filled stay. The innkeepers John and Kim were the perfect hosts! We have already booked another stay! Trust us ..this place is a must on your next getaway!
