Set deeply back from Chestnut Street, the Cooperstown inn’s two acres afford a serenity not easily duplicated in the village. A popular gathering place for friends – new and old – is the Inn’s patio. Surrounded by lush gardens, the patio provides a tropical ambiance to an afternoon glass of chardonnay, catching up on email, bemoaning your inability to hit the curve ball, or debating the greatest libretto.
A History of the Inn
They are stately and towering and tell their own stories about the days the cabriolets pulled up to the hitching post and carriage steps located on the Inn’s north side. They tell of summertime gatherings in the magnificent formal Victorian garden located on the back lawn.
And if you listen carefully, they tell of benevolence, and how each May, the Sills would host the children from the local orphanage for a day of family, food, fun, and yes, always stories.
