Policies

Check-in:

Check-in begins at 3:00 pm. If you arrive early, you are welcome to park your car and wander around Cooperstown or hang out in our living room, or on the porch. If you will be arriving after 10:00 PM or in the early, early morning hours, please let us know so we can worry about you.

When you arrive, please use the off-street parking area behind the building and enter through the front door that faces Chestnut Street. You may park in the driveway to unload your bags, but please don’t leave your car parked there in the event other guests are coming or going.

If staff member is not available, there will be a “Welcome Package” for you at the check in desk with directions to your room. The Welcome Package will also have a “Breakfast Menu” attached which you need to fill out and leave in the kitchen before you go out for dinner. Should you have any questions or need assistance, please call 607-547-2532.

Check-Out:

Check-out is at 11:00 am.

Cancellation Policy:

If you need to cancel or reduce the duration of your reservation, please do so 15 days prior to check-in. Deposits are returned less a $25.00 service fee. If you cancel or reduce the duration of your reservation during the 14 days preceding your originally scheduled arrival date or reduce the duration of your stay after you arrive, you will be financially responsible for the entire amount of your originally scheduled lodging, except for those nights we are able to rebook.

Payment:

We should add that we require a 50% advance deposit payable at the time of original booking and the remainder payable upon departure. There is a 8% New York State Sales Tax and a 4% NY State Bed Tax which is in addition to our room rates. Payment can be made with Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit cards, as well as by cash, travelers’ checks or personal/corporate check.

Additional Information:

The Cooperstown Bed and Breakfast is open year-round. We normally require a two-night minimum stay on weekends, although single-night availability on Friday or Saturday nights often occurs. So be sure to check with us if you can only stay one night. Children five years and older are welcome but we currently do not have the facilities to accommodate infants. Double and single occupancy rates are the same and but do not include additional guest. For each additional person, there is an additional nightly charge of $20.00.

 

Smoking:

Smoking is not permitted inside the inn. Guests may smoke on the porches or in the back yard where there are chairs, and tables with ash trays.

Breakfast:

A complimentary full, hot breakfast is served to our guests each morning between 8:00 and 9:30 AM in our dining room. For early risers (Dreams Park or business travelers) we can provide an earlier basic breakfast of coffee/tea, sausage/bacon, scrambled eggs, and toast starting at 07:15 when necessary. Just make sure you bring the early rise to our attention as soon as possible.

Quiet Time:

In order to keep the peace with the neighborhood and be respectful of other guests, we ask that any porch or yard gatherings be turned down to a quiet conversational level after 10:30 pm.
