I found this Inn while looking at tripadvisor for a place to stay while visiting Baseball Hall of Fame. It was perfect! Lori and Dave were gracious and made us feel right at home. The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. It was a short twenty minute or so ride to Cooperstown but so worth it. I will absolutely stay here again and highly recommend this wonderful Inn for anyone looking to stay somewhere comfortable and friendly. Thank You Lori and Dave, we appreciate your hospitality.

Our stay at the Brookside Inn at laurens was our first experience staying at a Bed and Breakfast. We loved it! The owners, Dave and Lori were very gracious hosts providing us with an extremely pleasant and enjoyable stay. Our accommodation was very clean and inviting. The food was delicious and the atmosphere charming. They both made us feel very welcome in their beautifully appointed home. Our first visit to the Oneonta area was a great success!
I had stayed here on a Ladies weekend with my friends. We rented the “Sage room” which was perfect. The place is simply beautiful without being stuffy whatsoever. It is apparent that the Innkeepers love what they do. They are attentive and friendly. The special touches really are special. This Inn is in my top five list. There are plenty of things to do and we wish we could have stayed another night. I will definitely be back.
What an experience. By far the most friendly, responsive and accommodating lodging experience my husband and I have ever had either as a couple or separately. The property is gorgeous, well-maintained, well decorated and tremendously comfortable. The breakfasts are are great .Lori And Dave the innkeepers should be proud of there inn, this is a amazing experience they offer. The pricing is very fair and well worth the time to book should anyone ever go to Oneonta. I plan on returning there as often as I possibly can.
Thank you to Dave and Lori for your hospitality and a wonderful stay. Your B&B is so charming, quaint and meticulously decorated. Breakfast was above and beyond. My bed was so comfortable I slept like a baby. This is a great find for the traveller looking to get away from it all any enjoy the serene surroundings. I look forward to my next visit!!
