Overview

Historic Federal-style upstate gem, close to charming downtown Cooperstown

The Lowdown

Step back in time at this elegant manor house, situated in downtown Cooperstown, one of New York State’s most historic and charming villages. The picturesque facade of the Federal-style mansion is swathed in ivy and features 15 guest rooms that pay homage to the building’s 19th century history with touches like antique fireplaces, toile wallpaper and comfy overstuffed armchairs. The public spaces sport original period details like a stunning wooden staircase and show-stopping chandelier, and the walls are lined with artworks from the Fenimore Art Museum. Room rates include a hearty continental breakfast that might feature home-made waffles and pastries, and while there’s no on-site restaurant, the hotel is just strolling-distance from Cooperstown’s best restaurants. Also nearby: the Otesaga Resort Hotel, where guests of the Cooper Inn can work out, swim in the heated pool or play a spot of tennis.

In the Area

Baseball aficionados won’t want to miss the The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, a shrine to the nation’s favorite sport that has been entertaining and illuminating fans since 1939. Art buffs, on the other hand, can get their fix at the excellent Fenimore Art Museum, housing a formidable collection of American folk art and Native American artworks, along with exhibits dedicated to Cooperstown’s most famous native son, writer James Fenimore Cooper. Mosey down to the Otesaga Resort to drink in gorgeous views of Lake Otsego while noshing on New York steak at the convivial Hawkeye Bar & Grill. For a more down-home dining experience, head to the Cooperstown Diner, a classic small-town joint slinging rib-sticking dishes like homemade corned beef hash and tuna melts.

Elegant Historic Inn- It's a treat to stay there!
Upstate_Peeps

The Inn is beautifully appointed and is sparkling clean. The downstairs sitting and breakfast rooms are gorgeous and comfortable. Complimentary wine from 4-7!! Breakfast with linens and china!!! Made to order omelettes by a friendly chef! Walking distance to downtown!! Our room was a tad on the basic side but very comfy. It is so nice to see staff who are appropriately dressed and totally understand that they are in the hospitality business!!!

Beautiful, comfortable Inn with professional, pleasant staff. Visited the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the Inn is just a few blocks away. The furnishings are splendid, lobby area relaxing and enjoyed a delightful continental breakfast.

Another amazing visit!

I stayed here with my friend and we had a two bedroom suite. It was nice and quiet and at the end of the hall with a full bathroom connecting the two units.
Free wine every night from 4-7 (I believe those are the hours) and free breakfast every morning. Walking distance to everything. Great service and hospitality. Highly recommended. Plus you can use the amenities at their sister resort just a 5 minute walk away.
