Lots of TLC

“I cannot praise owner/manager and staff for all they did for me when I had an accident on arrival. Lots of TLC even though I was not damaged my car was. Owner/Manager took care of everything: calling police, tow truck, insurance co., even drove me to Cooperstown so I could get a rental car. Her staff stayed at scene til car was towed away and carried all my stuff to my room. If you need a motel in that area stay there with such caring ‘salt of the earth’ kind of people. I cannot thank them enough.”

A Great Fit

“Guys trip to Hall of Fame, and used Bayside Inn and Marina as our ‘base’ of operations for a couple of days. Great property on the lake… we took full advantage of the water-view deck and the barbeque set-up…. really enjoyed our stay. Appreciated both the proximity to town and the privacy. Plenty of room for us to stretch out and be comfortable. Excellent value, really nice spot.”
