3 Reasons Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast is the Ideal Place to Stay While Visiting Cooperstown

Central New York may be best known as home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, but Cooperstown truly is America’s best small town. This enchanting village offers visitors a variety of delightful Main Street shops, unique museums of folk art and farm life, incredible restaurants, and one-of-a-kind activities, all set against a backdrop of glistening lakes and majestic mountains. Whether you come to watch your child play at Cooperstown Dreams Park, experience baseball history at the Hall of Fame, see a show at Glimmerglass Festival, sip, shop, and stroll down historic Main Street, or discover the magnificent landscape, Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast is the ideal choice for visiting Cooperstown. Here’s why:

  1. Quick Scenic Drive
    You can’t truly appreciate the Village of Cooperstown without taking in the beauty that surrounds it. Those who make the quick 35-minute drive from Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast are inspired during a journey through quintessential New York countryside, filled with rolling hills, orchards, and rustic farmlands. The natural beauty of the short trip is as memorable as the museums. Keep an eye out during the summer months and you just might catch a glimpse of the majestic bald eagles who call the region home. If you’re visiting during the fall, the legendary landscape is enhanced by colored foliage and is not to be missed. And if you have some extra time, be sure to stop by Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard along the way.
  2. Here’s to Hospitality
    The historic house is a reflection of our commitment to hospitality – a perfect harmony between the past and present. After a busy day of taking in the many sights, you’ll want a comfortable and well-appointed place to rest and a delicious homemade breakfast to get you going again the next morning. If you’re traveling with family or friends, our spacious living room is the perfect setting to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Our guest rooms offer modern-day convenience with premium cable television and complimentary Wi-Fi. Premium Beekman 1802 amenities, signature bathrobes and slippers will help you relax before tucking in for a great night’s sleep in our luxury bedding. A stay at Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast is an experience outside the ordinary and the perfect alternative to a large-scale or cookie-cutter hotel you’ll find when visiting Cooperstown.
  3. Incredible Value
    With over 300,000 annual visitors to the National Baseball Hall of Fame alone, lodging in the Village of Cooperstown can be hard to find and really expensive. This is particularly true during the summer months and especially during Hall of Fame Induction Weekend, when crowds swell to their peak. We know it’s not just about finding a cheap price on a place stay, so we’re all about exceeding expectations and delivering incredible value to our guests. With a promise of personalized service, rates as low as half of those in Cooperstown, the ability to book now and pay later, free cancellation up to five days prior to your stay, and a return guest discount, you can’t go wrong booking your stay at Grand Colonial Bed and Breakfast. Check out these TripAdvisor reviews from some of our past guests who visited Cooperstown during their stay:

“Bedding was “luxurious” and very comfortable and the location was convenient to local sights and an easy ride to Cooperstown. Prices of accommodations here were much more reasonable than Cooperstown so we ended up (happily) in Herkimer.” — WeekendW

“We stayed in the Kingsland Room in August while attending Glimmerglass Opera in nearby Cooperstown. Michael is a great host, very friendly and a great chef! Breakfast was delicious, the room was very comfortable, with everything needed for a great stay. We highly recommend the Grand Colonial.” — Explorer635918

“A very charming and well-kept bed and breakfast. Mike was a gracious host and his breakfasts are well prepared. I would definitely stay again. It’s about a 30-minute drive from Cooperstown Dreams Park.” — Heather
