The Friendly, Welcoming Cooperstown Bed and Breakfast

You know you've arrived at a great bed and breakfast when you look forward to seeing the owners as much as visiting the vacation destination.

That's the ultimate compliment to John and Linda Smirk of the Cooperstown Bed and Breakfast, given that we regard Cooperstown as our favorite travel destination. John and Linda are two of the most down-to-earth B&B owners you will ever meet and welcome you like a favorite relative to their large 1902 Victorian home -- in the heart of the Village and walkable to many attractions.

The Cooperstown Bed and Breakfast creates the perfect foundation for those traveling to Cooperstown to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame, The Farmers' Museum, Fenimore Art Museum, Abner Doubleday Field, Fly Creek Cider Mill, scenic Otsego Lake, the picture-perfect tree-lined Main Street, and many other "Americana" attractions.

The guest rooms, including two suites (one with bunk beds), are filled with old-world Victorian charm as well as amenities such as private bathrooms, air conditioning and ceiling fans.

Some Cooperstown B&B highlights: An afternoon tea on the relaxing front porch with wicker or in the fire placed living room, and a cozy outdoor second floor porch with soft candlelight, ideal for lounging with a glass of wine. The unforgettable breakfast buffet includes homemade scones, cinnamon buns, waffles, sausage, bacon, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit and juices. Afternoon and evening refreshments include fresh baked cookies and other baked goods, as well as fruit and cheese!

Just writing this review makes us want to return to our favorite bed and breakfast and vacation destination, the magical Village of Cooperstown, N.Y.
