My wife and I stayed at the Main Street B & B over Memorial Day, and couldn't have had a better time. I hadn't been to Cooperstown in years, and had never stayed at a B&B before. Suffice it to say, we can't wait to come back to the town and to stay at Ron and Susie's again. Everything about the experience there was great. As someone who is used to the rules and regulations you get at a chain hotel, I was constantly surprised at how flexible they were. Check-in is at 3 and we get there at noon? No problem, Ron led us to our room. Breakfast ends at 9 and my wife wants to go for a run by the lake at 8:45? No problem, Susie saved a plate of food for her.
We had the front room, which was small, but perfectly quaint for what we were looking for. We later learned that all B&B's don't have private baths, so we might not have been as impressed with our own bathroom as we should have been. One note: bring shampoo as it isn't provided.
The location was also fantastic. About an 8 minute walk to the HOF. Easy parking on the street right in front (which you know is nice if you have had to park in Cooperstown before.) Just close enough to walk everywhere, but secluded enough that crowds aren't walking by.
Can't wait for out next visit!
