When you arrive, please use the free, off-street, parking area behind the building and enter through the front door that faces Chestnut Street. You may park in the driveway to unload your bags, but please don’t leave your car parked there in the event other guests are coming or going.

Upon departure, cash, travelers’ checks or personal/corporate checks can be accepted as well.

We can only accept children above the age of ten.

Additional Information:

The Cooperstown Bed and Breakfast is open for as much of the year as we have interest from guests. We normally require a two-night minimum stay on weekends and that is programmed into our website and reservation system. We can make exceptions, so be sure to check with us if you can only stay one weekend night.

Smoking:

Smoking is not permitted inside the inn. Guests may only smoke on the porches or outside areas.

Breakfast:

We provide a personalized menu upon your arrival and after breakfast for the following day(s). A made-to-order breakfast is served to our guests each morning between 8:00 and 10:00 AM in our dining room. For those that need to eat earlier (Dreams Park or business travelers), we can offer a simple meal of scrambled eggs, toast, cold cereal, yogurt, jams, fresh fruit and coffee or tea at 7:30 AM but our daily menu is unavailable before our breakfast hours.

Quiet Time:

In order to keep the peace with the neighborhood and be respectful of other guests, we ask that any porch or yard gatherings be turned down to a quiet conversational level after 10:30 pm. You’re welcome to hang out in the front parlor any time you like as well.

COVID 19 Policies:

We hope to be able to open safely in April of 2021. In order to do that, we will be following NY State and Village of Cooperstown policies enforcing mask-wearing and social distancing in the common areas of our property. Additionally, we will be providing hand sanitizer, and dutifully wiping down all common area surfaces with CDC-approved disinfectants.

Animals:

Pets are not permitted. Please contact us if you have a service dog.
