Backstop Apartment

Mark W from NJ - 8/16/2019

The Bordinger Backstop is the best place we have ever stayed. Not only was the apartment clean, it was also perfect for our needs. Tammy and Ed were so nice and they took care of us every step of the way. With three kids all playing highly competitive sports, we have traveled the country. The Backstop Apartment far exceeded any other place we have ever stayed. It was so wonderful that my wife and I are planning on going back, just the two of us, so we can rest, relax, and enjoy the wonderful people that run this fantastic home away from home.

Tammy & Ed were great hosts. Very attentive to all your needs and fun to talk with. The apartment is clean, cozy and well appointed. A home away from home. Everyday they left a great message for our son and a few tasty treats. The pool was great, 80 degrees warm! The dogs were a big hit! It is super close to all star village so it was easy to run back and relax between games! We hope to come back in a few years when our younger son gets his turn. I would definitely recommend.

The Backstop is wonderful!! It’s clean and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom is newly renovated. It is super convenient to All Star Village. The pool and backyard are so inviting and relaxing and above all the hostess Tammy and her husband Eddy do everything they can to accommodate and make you feel welcomed and comfortable! I would go back there over and over again! So glad we found this home away from home!

It was exactly what we needed for our family of four, and super convenient location for access to All Star Village. Tammy is just a doll and made our stay extra special by writing inspiring, sweet messages on her welcome board each morning, and bringing us goodies! She is the sweetest.

Located within 10 minutes of the All Star Village it made commuting between games a breeze. The owners, Tammy and Ed, were delightful and really made us feel warm and welcome. Upon arrival there were homemade cookies waiting for us and each day Tammy would pen a small message on a board near the entry door. The property itself was clean and very comfortable. The view from the driveway onto the surrounding hills was breathtaking. All in all a wonderful place to stay.

I couldn’t have chosen a better place to stay with my family on this trip. Tammy and Ed were amazing. They welcomed us into their home as if we were part of the family. We had everything we needed and more. . The dogs, pool and accommodations were great too. Lots of little extras that no one else on our team had the pleasure of having. I would highly recommend The Backstop for any single family that is traveling to All Star Village. The dogs and pool are an extra added bonus too!

Nice Apartment. Very clean. The dogs on the property are so well behaved and super lovable. The property is shared with the host family, so they are quickly available if you need anything. They are welcoming and helpful, but also give you your space. Since it's a basement apartment of the home, you can hear some sounds between the two areas. Having a living area and kitchen in addition to bedrooms is nice when you are out at Cooperstown for a week. Typically, visiting families have a few days where their players and/or coaches spend a few nights. It would be cramped if you had more than one family there. The pool is very nice. Since it rained a lot the week we were there, the family kept it covered some days. This made for comfy water and it was really clean. Only once did we have to request it to be opened, but the hosts had it ready in 10 mins. The short wait was well worth it, only mentioned in case you're uncomfortable making such a request. The day we left, our youngest son had to say goodbye to the dogs he'd become so attached to, which made him cry. Of course everyone else cried along with him! Great Cooperstown destination!!!

From the moment we drove onto the property, we were welcomed with open arms. Tammy made us feel like we were at home there. The accommodations were lovely and so close to cooperstown all-star village. My kids loved the pool and the dogs. We all felt very comfortable around the entire family and couldn’t have asked for a better place to call home for a week.

If I could rate Backstop Apartment more than 5 stars in EVERY category I would! Immaculate. Comfortable. Convenient location to AllStar Village made enjoying the pool between games the perfect break. Backstop has the best and most gracious hosts. We liked them so much we want to come back to stay just to hang out with them and take in more of New York. We loved absolutely everything about this place. Truly felt like a home away from home.

This is a perfect place to stay if your son is playing at Cooperstown ASV. It's about a mile away. I would highly recommend this rental for any family.

Backstop Apartment was a great place to stay. We definitely recommend this property. It was extremely close to All Star Village baseball complex which made all the back and forth driving between games very convenient. The homeowners, Tammy and Ed, were hospitable and friendly. They were very accommodating and welcoming to our family. The property was well maintained and very clean. The in-ground pool was a welcomed reprieve for our 3 other children who needed a break from watching baseball. A quick splash in the pool between games or a relaxing afternoon poolside after a day at the fields kept them (and us) smiling! We hit a grandslam by choosing Backstop Apartment. We truly had a blessed time!

Friendly people who go above and beyond for customer service who feel like family now. The environment was clean. Newer furniture. Loved the washer/dryer. The pool is what sold us. Very nice, refreshing. I will definitely refer the Backstop Apartment to future teams from our association if they come to Cooperstown.
