Fodor's Review

The owners of this 1850 mansion are opera lovers, and the inn tends to book up with other opera buffs during the local company's summer season. The house, on a tree-lined, flower-filled yard created from three city lots, includes rooms painted in salmon pink, malachite green, burgundy, and pale yellow. Each guest room is unique, and a coach-house apartment—a good value—has a bedroom, a living area, and a kitchenette. Breakfast includes fresh berry pies and fruit crisps as well as such standard fare as quiche. Note that a dog also resides here.

the breakfast is the best part!

It was late November when we stayed at the Barnwell while visiting Cooperstown. The inn is conveniently located a short walk from the center of town and the Hall of Fame. We had the large, 2 room suite on the first floor. The sitting room has a fireplace and TV. The bedroom is cozy, and nicely decorated. There's a small patio leading to the garden which is probably quite nice in the summertime. But the best part of our stay was the friendly

hosts, and the absolutely fantastic breakfast. there was way more food than the two of us could eat, including a freshly cooked quiche, and other home made goodies. Seriously...this is one of the best b&b breakfasts I've ever had.
