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.
How to Get There
The Cooper Inn was exactly what my trip to Cooperstown needed. It's right in the city center, so everything you could want to see is within walking distance. The room was gracious and well-appointed, and the overall ambiance of the Inn was historic and lovely. The staff was kind, and the service acceptable, but it was nothing to write home about. The continental breakfast was good. I would definitely stay there again if I have the money, but I saved up a long time for this visit.
Once you park your car here, you can walk to the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Otesaga resort (sister property, so you have priviledges there) and even the Fenimore Art Museum if you can walk a mile (though the sidewalk ends a few hundred feet BEFORE you get to the Museum). Lovely property, nice staff. Hotel rooms were spacious, and the breakfast was good. Would definitely stay again--and Cooperstown itself is a lovely little 'surprise' town! Its in the middle of nowhere but.....
Quaint inn conveniently located between Main St./National Baseball Hall of Fame and The Otesaga Resort Hotel. We parked our rental car at the Inn and never had to drive anywhere. Cozy room with nice bathtub/shower combo in bathroom. Daily 4pm wine and nice continental breakfast were nice touches at no extra cost. We also took advantage of discount ticket for breakfast buffet at Otesaga Resort Hotel, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We would definitely stay here again on our next visit.
Our third time here and we will definitely be back for a 4th. Took advantage of a Getaway pkg. Decor is lovely, rooms are very nice and it is located right in town. Complimentary wine is served in the afternoon and the continental breakfast
Is very good.
Beautiful setting and convenient location in town so everything was within walking distance. Very clean. Staff was polite, attentive and helpful. Tasty continental breakfast. Quiet. Our room had 2 comfy oversized chairs and tons of natural light. Beds were very comfortable. Really enjoyed our 2-night stay.
