Yearly trip to Cooperstown, NY

5 on October 03, 2016

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.

Good stay near Cooperstown

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!)

Hidden gem for Cooperstown visit

4.4 on July 06, 2016

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!

Cute & Cozy

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

A Wonderful Stay

4.8 on October 29, 2015

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.

All around charming Bed & Breakfast

3.6 on September 02, 2015

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!

Lovely grounds

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.

Nice place, friendly people

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.
