The Cooperstown BaseBall Hotel , known in the glory days of Richfield Springs as the Terrace Hotel and Sulfur Bath Hotel, is the last standing hotel and bath house complex that marked the end of the most important era in the village's history . At the height of the Springs popularity, the village had numerous hotels and bath houses and was a popular summer destination. The Era of the Springs served such guests as inventor Thomas Edison, Governor and President Franklin Roosevelt, Cyrus McCormick of McCormick Harvester, Gen. George McCellan, writer Sarah Orne Jewitt, and Oscar Wilde and many others in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

Now it will cater to baseball families providing lodging for large groups.

Why Gene Corrigan chose Central - Leatherstocking

This Cooperstown BaseBall Hotel is a Spectacular Architectural Structure of an era gone by when thousands of people came here for sulfur baths and was built specifically as a Jewish Hotel. The Jewish Synagogue was next door and the Hotel was there to house the guests of the sulfur spa. Today it is used to house the many baseball or softball families that come for the many baseball parks in the area of Cooperstown.

What makes this hotel unique

While this property is not on the lake, it enjoys all of the amenities of staying on the lake as well as being at the hub of activity, only a block from downtown within walking distance of antique stores,pharmacy,ice cream parlors,library,tennis court,and large park with a farmers market.The cooking facility is thirty by forty forty feet and has all the equipment needed to prepare meals on a large scale just as it did for the guests of the hotel during the early 1900's.This feature alone will save hundreds of dollars in eating out. The camaraderie of living together in such an open dining and lobby area of the 1895 era will leave a lasting memory of days gone by when people came strictly for the sulfur baths.

The Lake House Hotel can be rented from 25-30 guests up to 70 guests.

Picturesque!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a gentlemens getaway and it was perfect! The owner was extremely gracious in welcoming the group and made sure the Baseball Hotel was fully prepared. The amenities were top notch and we left with a feeling of not wanting to leave!

Perfect location for wedding in Cooperstown.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wedding to attend in Cooperstown and after looking at the prices of local hotels, we decided to look for a hotel that would accommodate three couples. We stumbled upon this little gem and we are so happy we did! The beds were comfortable, the hotel was in a perfect location (only about 15 minutes outside of Cooperstown).

"Historic Building that was saved and beautiful."

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Baseball Hotel for a group of us working on the Fennimore Art museum in Cooperstown. We do not usually write reviews for hotels we stay at since they are never that interesting. This one is the exception. We are used to working on buildings like this one to save the architectural uniqueness, this one got saved and is beautiful. We have been here now several times and continue to return since it is a remarkable building.

"A great find for the Cooperstown Area."

  • 5 of 5

We decided at the last minute to go to Cooperstown for a baseball game on the weekend. We got the last available room. We didn't arrive until 1 am. The desk clerk was extremely friendly and personable. The room was very nicely decorated and super clean. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was pristine (so important to me). Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the room, we will definitely stay there next time we go to Cooperstown! Near by were several good restaurants and it is on the main road so easy to drive south to Cooperstown or north to Utica or Old Forge. I would definitely stay here again.

“Great week of baseball in the perfect setting!”

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Baseball Hotel and cottages with two other families (total of 8 people) and never did we feel on top of one another. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. It was a beautiful, clean hotel that was decorated well and in a comfortable fashion. Coming back to the hotel after a long day at the baseball park was a pleasure. The kids never wanted to get out of the lake since we were there every minute.

Shane and Chris made sure we had everything we needed including recommendations on where to eat and things to do. They even stopped by to check in and introduce themselves. I can't say enough about this property and the people that own it...if you are going to Cooperstown for baseball there is no better place to be.

Wonderful Pet Friendly Hotel.

  • 5 of 5

We brought our dog Ginger to the Lake House since it is one of the very few pet friendly hotels anywhere near Cooperstown. While she played along

the lake house shore we sat in great comfy in the Adirondack chairs watching the sun go down - BREATHTAKING! and eating S'mores over the fire pit. We enjoyed our end-of-the-season stay so much, we asked the owners if we could stay on longer. We loved the lake: sand toys for the pets, row boat, canoe (even safety-approved life vests), lake-front fire pit, and fabulous sunsets.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad the handicap ramp was of great service to you, may father was in a wheelchair for years and I know the value of a good ramp. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and you had a comfortable stay as well. We are glad you were able to enjoy the local area. Thank you for your feedback you have provided and choosing to stay with us. We hope to see you come back and stay with us again. Warmest Regards, Christine Corrigan, owner/manager of the Hotel.
