After my neighbor and I spent a VERY rainy gloomy day at the Antique show in Madison, we were welcomed at the B&B by Maureen and immediately shown to our rooms. So clean, inviting and welcoming. The breakfasts were delicious - the morning hot chocolate and coffee just right to wake up to. The parlor was just the right size for relaxing and watching the nightly news/weather before a soak in the jetted tub. Location was very convenient to tour Cooperstown. The kitty made it seem like home, the dessert one evening such a nice touch, and visiting with Maureen and Andy very enjoyable. You can be sure we will recommend it to friends - we're even considering another trip to the area and stay at the Barstow House 1888.
