Creekside Bed and Breakfast

Traveller (5)
Room & Suite (14)
Dining (10)


Creekside, one of Cooperstown's first Bed & Breakfasts, a tall Colonial house built in 1849, opened it doors to accommodate guests by two of Glimmerglass Opera's founders and performers 35 years ago, Gwen Ermlich and her husband, the late Fred Ermlich. Today, memories of stage productions still play an important role at Creekside. In fact, before becoming an inn, the house had expanded out of necessity just to meet the needs of hosting both opening and closing night parties for opera productions for 13 years. Gwen refers to it as "a happy accident" when this routine turned into a family hospitality business. Creekside sits on four acres of lawn with a creek for fishing and swimming in beautiful upstate New York. We are five minutes to the Baseball Hall of Fame and good restaurants and 20 minutes to the Opera House. Gwen would be glad to make dinner reservations for you at wonderful restaurants that will be sure to get you out in time for the performances. We are 5 minutes to the Dreams Park, a Baseball Camp for 12 year olds & 15 minutes to Ommegang Brewery & concerts. The Baseball Hall of Fame is open year round with only three days closed, easy to guess which three. All rooms have either Queen or King size beds, Private Baths,Cable TV and Full Breakfast included in the rate. Some rooms have A/C or ceiling or window fans but also have Down Comforters as even in summer, the nighttime temperatures fall when the mountain air comes in. So it's a good idea to be prepared for night time performances at the Glimmerglass Opera Festival. Free WiFi is available also. Creekside is renowned for its wonderful breakfasts. Some guests have been coming for decades - come see why! Room Rates: $145.00 - $269.00 + tax Double Occupancy.

i have been to Cooperstown many times and you will only appreciate Creekside B & B when you have stayed at other places around Cooperstown only because there was no room at their inn. Better make your plans early and book your reservations ASAP at Creekside for your trip to

The grounds are spacious and very inviting for outdoor activities. We liked having room to toss a football around as all of us are very much into football. We were also very pleased to find a bowling alley available since we all bowl on the same team.

"If you have a large family I would ask about the "Cottage", otherwise all the room are good for couples."
"Stay in them all, change each time you plan your trip, you will not be dissapointed. I have tried the rest of the B&B(s) in Cooperstown, only because I had to, don't waste your time and money, stay at the best (Creekside)."
"While there I took a good look at all the rooms, and every one was special. I've had my pals from the American Legion take a look at the Creekside website to get their approval and each of the five was very impressed and gave his consent. We are particularly interested in the Opera site which is very conveniently located, contiguous to Creekside and a very pleasant walk."
"All rooms beautiful and tasteful."
"All the rooms are well appointed, comfortable and quiet."
