The property consists of eleven different apartments spread across a two-story building in downtown Cooperstown. The apartments come with fully-equipped kitchens and other important furniture items such as couches and televisions.

The enterprise known as Creamery Accommodations is a lodging business located in Cooperstown, New York. The property is comprised of a two-story building with eleven separate apartments. The units have varying sizes and styles, including "studio" size, one-bedroom apartments, and two-bedroom accommodations. Typical for standard or studio apartments, each of the eleven options at Creamery Accommodations comes completely furnished, including a full kitchen stocked with appliances and cutlery, as well as private bathrooms.
A more extensive list of amenities and features in the apartments includes a flat-screen television with Roku streaming devices in each living room, air conditioning, and high-speed internet. The kitchens come equipped with a stove, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, and various utensils and dishes. The distinct apartments are decorated with relatively similar themes, though the specific decor varies from room to room, setting the units at Creamy Accommodations apart from a motel.

Cooperstown is a reasonably small city, with a population of just around 1,800 people. Still, private parking is provided to all guests staying at the property. This allows for patrons to more easily come and go, which is a common occurrence for most guests of Creamery Accommodations. The Cooperstown Dreams Park is roughly four miles away from the establishment, which is the most notorious reason why people come to the area. The park hosts a baseball camp every summer as a longstanding tradition, and so the majority of guests to the apartments are the young baseball players and their families. There are so many families that come to Cooperstown for the event, in fact, that Creamery Accommodations has put a policy in place preventing any stay less than a week from occurring during the summer.
Most of the nearby attractions are related to baseball in some form or another. The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is located only a few blocks away from the apartments, as well as the Heroes of Baseball Wax Museum. Otsego Lake isn't much further to the north, giving guests to the property the option to participate in boating activities. Restaurants in the nearby area include Mel's 22, Bocca Osteria, and Toscana Italian Fusion & Grill. Mel's at 22 serves menu items such as seafood and hamburgers, with the goal of each dish being fresh. Bocca Osteria is an Italian restaurant serving Neapolitan-style pizza, paninis, pasta, and salads. Finally, the Toscana Italian Fusion & Grill offers Italian dishes like classic bolognese and lobster ravioli.
As a business, Creamery Accommodations is known for its customer service provided to its guests and its proximity to Cooperstown Dreams Park. The park, in particular, has been influenced by the baseball culture that has been prominent in Cooperstown for years. The nearby attractions of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the Heroes of Baseball Wax Museum have been the inspiration for much of the appeal of Cooperstown as a whole. Joe Galati, who owns Creamery Accommodations, explains that virtually all of the guests they receive at their property are in the area to experience the different baseball-related activities, especially during the summer. That being said, baseball isn't the only thing to do nearby. Guests can opt to visit the Glimmerglass State Park to the northeast, which includes parts of Otsego Lake, where guests can spend time swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, and more. The Farmers' Museum is another tourist attraction, recreating a 19th-century village setting with a few activities for visitors to experience.
