From the moment we arrived, Patti made us feel right at home. She quickly dispensed with the nuts and bolts of the keys and lights and the particulars of our room and whet our appetites for the next morning's breakfast before asking us what we might need in terms of any dining or recreational recommendations for our stay. We immediately felt we were in good hands, and our stay was wonderful, from our charming and comfortable room with everything we might need and more to the AMAZING breakfast spread Patti presented each morning to her guests (different menu, different table linens, napkin rings, and table ware each day: a visual and culinary feast rolled into one!). Breakfast is @ 8:30 for all guests and conversation flows amidst the "mmms" and "ahhs" of deliciousness. Patti never misses a beat and anticipates her guests' every need. When everyone is duly sated, she shares stories relevant to the conversation threads being woven around the table. When asked what guests' plans are, Steve is ready with recommendations for the best Cooperstown and the surrounding area has to offer the native residents in terms of eateries and he is spot on! Patti and Steve have a wealth of knowledge about all the doings in Cooperstown and thereabouts and their cache of warmth and hospitality can't be matched.
Patty and Steve made us feel like we were part of their family. from the first time we arrive to the morning we left. This was also our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and was very comfortable and relaxing. Will stay again when in Cooperstown.
What a wonderful place to stay in "Baseball Country." Patti and Steve made us feel right at home. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. They gave us an overview of the village, places to go and local restaurants to visit. Sitting with Steve next to the fireplace was delightful way to learn about the history of the town. We loved our stay there. Highly recommended. Two thumbs up!!
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Rose and Thistle. The room was charming, nothing to find fault with. Great to have off-street parking.
The breakfast itself was an unexpected delight. Every morning something different. Also the price was so much better than the Holiday Inn Express or whatever it was.
We haven't really stayed at many B&Bs of this type, so we may not be as discriminating as some, but we certainly had a wonderful stay!
