exceeded expectationsPosted Sep 29, 2015 on Orbitz
Great thought went into the way the hosts anticipated their guests needs. A kleenex would be nice, there it was. a chocolate snack in my room would be nice, there it was. Man, a nice glass of wine with that chocolate would be nice, there (the complimentary wine) it was! Waking to the smell of breakfast cooking made me think of my aunt flossy's warm farm house, that was priceless. Tired of chain accommodations? This is your place!

Welcoming Comfort Outside of CooperstownPosted Aug 19, 2015 on Hotels
Armed with a free night from Hotels.com Rewards and looking for a place to stay for a concert at the Ommegang Brewery outside of Cooperstown, I found the Brookside Inn at Laurens, and my friends and I are very happy I did! Located in a sleepy town an easy (and scenic) 20 minute drive to Ommegang, co-proprietor Lori was welcoming from the start, calling to confirm that she received the reservation from the website and to converse about our plans. When we arrived, she had kept a note that we were going to Ommegang, and offered to help with directions. Our first floor room, the Red Room, was perfect for three people, and while it shares a bathroom with one other room, the bathroom was kept spotless and we had no issues with sharing. Several thoughtful and complimentary items made the stay extra comfortable, including wine coolers in the room, a wide assortment of options for midnight snackers (perfect after the concert), and homemade breakfast (blueberry pancakes, sausage and bacon) the next morning. Even as we prepared to depart, Lori gave my friend tips on how to achieve the look of Lori and Dave's kitchen. In sum, while there may be options closer to Cooperstown, the many personal touches of Brookside Inn would definitely lead us stay there again.

Give this place a miss and look elsewhere to stayPosted Jul 30, 2015 on Hotels
Highly disappointed in this B&B.Not at all like reviews say online. Needs some redo or upgrades to rooms such as a desk to do work on, better quality sheets, larger bathrooms and water pressure.I could not get shampoo out of my hair let alone turn around in shower.Closest restaurant 20 mins.Owners rude and inflexible to attempt making our stay comfortable.Paid $$ due to HOF Induction. Forfeited one night due to lack of accommodations.No cell service in area.No phone in room.DO NOT recommend.

Cooperstown Dreampark Vacation---Play BallPosted Jun 13, 2015
Pros: This B&B was originally built in 1816 but is in great shape. We have stayed in several B&B's but this was the best we have been in. We love this place
Location: The B&B is located 22 miles from the Cooperstown Dream Park if you are going for baseball. The drive is beautiful. The Baseball Hall of Fame, love it!
Wow!!! What a wonderful place to stay. We spent a week at "Brookside Inn At Laurens" and absolutely loved it. Lori and Dave are great hosts and do a fantastic job making sure you have everything you need during your stay. We'll be headed back to the Cooperstown Dream Park in a couple of years with our other 2 grandsons and will definitively be staying at Brookside. There are no words to express how pleased we were with this stay. Thanks to Dave and Lori for making this a truly enjoyable week. We already miss our morning conversation over coffee and breakfast.

A great stay for a honeymoonPosted Oct 13, 2014 on Hotels
It was really excellent. Lori is a terrific host, breakfast was amazing. I highly recommend it. And the drive to and from sights we planned to visit was scenic, our visit was in the Fall. I do also recommend planning meals out in advance though, there is not much going on right in Laurens, and its a 20 minute drive to the closest places.

Beautiful family ran hotelPosted Oct 10, 2014
Hotel owners were welcoming + extremely friendly, couldn't do more to help. The location for us was good as we were visiting our children at Hartwick College (only a 10 minute drive). Breakfast was lovely, something for everyone, loved all the extra treats + novelties, sweets, popcorn machine etc... , not that we indulged, just a nice touch. The atmosphere was relaxed + welcoming to all who stayed, I will definitely stay here again!
