Package Your Stay

Your stay at the White House Inn is more than just a room and breakfast, it’s an experience. Reserve one of our vacation packages to get a unique view of Cooperstown, America’s most perfect village.

You may have wondered how a place like the National Baseball Hall of Fame maintains the 40,000 artifacts, 145,000 baseball cards and millions of other pieces that it collects.  Now you can find out with the Collection Care and Conservation Tour.  This behind the scenes tour walks you through, with their experts, how the National Baseball Hall of Fame cares for their collection, giving you the knowledge and experience to care for your own.
