Upstate New York’s Best Kept Winter Secret

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

We’re in the thick of winter now, and if you’re anything like me, you are probably suffering from cabin fever. Personally, this means an overwhelming craving to frosty tree branch in wintersee and do something different, whether that means traveling to a new country or attending a gala at the Fenimore Art Museum right here in Cooperstown. We offer the perfect solution – Upstate New York winter getaways.

I moved to Cooperstown this past May and have been blessed by the bounty of events occurring here throughout the Summer and Fall. These events sated my never-ending desire for new experiences and ultimately made me fall in love with Cooperstown. Admittedly, I had no idea what to expect of winter in Cooperstown. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Cooperstown embraces the peace and quiet that comes with the off-season. Museum exhibits that I dared not visit during the summer due to the crowds are suddenly mine to ponder for an afternoon. Local bands and organizations have collaborated to provide locals and visitors alike with a variety of entertainment from concerts at the Fenimore to Moonlight Snowshoeing at Glimmerglass State Park. Cooperstown, it seems, is New York’s best kept winter secret!

2012 World Series Trophy at the Landmark Inn

2012 World Series Trophy

2012 World Series Trophy

The Landmark Inn hosted the 2012 World Series trophy! On June 21st, Landmark guests were treated to an exclusive viewing of the 2012 World Series Trophy and World Series ring won in thrilling fashion by the San Francisco Giants! Representatives of the World Champions, who stayed at the Inn, hosted an upfront and personal experience.

Guests were actually encouraged to hold the trophy and wear the ring for their personal pictures. Can you imagine… holding the World Series Trophy? Both the ring and the trophy are crafted by Tiffany’s, and even more beautiful in life than pictures. The trophy arrived in a large Tiffany blue pouch, which drew a loud “ohhh!” from a number of the ladies in attendance.

Owner and Innkeeper Robin Schneider wants to believe the Landmark was chosen for this exclusive event because of the new shine she and the staff have put on the Inn. Fred’s convinced it’s because he’s worshiped Willie Mays for the better part of 50 years and finally, somebody important noticed. Either way…we were thrilled to see our Cooperstown bed and breakfast guests so excited, and to give them the memory of a lifetime!
