“Perfect spot for both Hall of Fame visit and Cooperstown Dreams Park”
Reviewed 22 July 2011

This B&B is a lovely home filled with baseball memorabilia. We rented two rooms and each was spacious and clean. Each morning we were served a delicious breakfast that would keep us full until dinner. The location is within very short walking distance to the Hall of Fame and the charming village of Cooperstown and a short drive to the Cooperstown Dreams Park. As an added bonus, the owners are wonderful hosts, as well as avid baseball fans.

This is a great place to stay. We enjoyed the food, the facility, and the fellowship.
Suzanne and John are kind, gracious, and hospitable. There is more traffic noise than we are accustomed to, but the location is so convenient that it's worth it. If we visit Cooperstown again, we will certainly choose to stay at the Baseball Bed and Breakfast.

My husband and I are spontaneous and knew we would be visting Cooperstown to end our baseball tour. Before arrival we were unsure if we would be staying or driving home straight to Toronto!

The host and hostess were extremely welcoming and laid back. We (family of six with small children) showed up on their doorstop with no reservation and we were able to be accomodated!

We were all enamored with the baseball memorabilia which was tastefully scattered, and the rooms were cozy. Each room was fashioned after a ball player and was equipped with amenities and a ceiling fan for cooling us down. The rooms are spacious, which is good because we have a lot of luggage.

We had a charming, old-fashioned bathroom beside us and a litttle baseball library to keep the kids busy while we got ready.

The location is great! It's a stones throw to the main strip and has a pretty backyard for relaxing or enjoying breakfast the next morning:-)

Our breakfast was delicious (blueberry pancakes and tasty sausages); variety of cold cereal and fresh fruit. Oh, the coffee was good - that's important to us!

I would highly recommend staying at the Baseball Bed & Breakfast and I would like to thank them for their generosity to our family.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Baseball Bed & Breakfast in Cooperstown NY. Large and well-appointed rooms, superb breakfasts, a lovely deck and beautiful grounds and especially the warm and welcoming hosts, Suzanne and John, made for an outstanding stay. Easy walking distance to the Hall of Fame, center of town and a short drive to the Glimmerglass Opera and museums made this B&B a very pleasant and very convenient choice. Highly recommended and we’ll surely return.

Having lodged at mainly hotels, a few motels and even cruise ships, I knew my first stay at a Bed & Breakfast Inn would be an experience. Although I cannot compare it to any other Bed & Breakfast Inn, the smell alone beats hotel/motel competition. It didn’t smell moldy or of disinfectant; it had a smell of fresh air that cannot be captured in a can or created in a spray bottle.

The Rudy’s, who are the hostesses, made you feel right at home. This mini trip happened to be a gift for my son’s 15th birthday to which I casually mentioned to the Rudy’s. They quickly managed to have a happy birthday treat with candles and song after Mrs. Rudy served us a homemade blueberry pancake breakfast, complete with sausage, fresh fruit, and cereal choices..

Even though we had gone to the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum, Mr. Rudy took the time to educate us more about baseball and how they honored the legends.

If I had to give this place stars, I would give it a 4.5 out of 5, and that is simply because there are no locks, latch or otherwise, on the doors. Overall, it was a splendid experience and I would recommend it to others.
