We arrived at the Arbor Inn and were greeted at the door by Dave and Ellen. We immediately felt welcomed and felt so comfortable with these gracious hosts. The rooms were cozy, immaculate and fresh and the attention to detail was amazing. Ellen's breakfast was everything you could have wished for...so delicious and pleasing. And the weather was perfect so... More

The Arbor Inn at Griffin House was a welcome comfortable stay for my son and I on our way to Rocheter. The entire house is tastefully decorated and was open to visitors to use. Our room (the Rockport Suite) was very well appointed with a separate sitting room with pull out bed for my son and a good ensuite bathroom.... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. The innkeepers were warm and friendly. The rooms were cozy and the surroundings beautiful. There were little touches like individually wrapped homemade cookies, mints and chilled bottled water available all day. Breakfast was delicious as well.

This is a beautiful place in the country behind Hamilton College. We had the Berkshire Room. Clean, comfortable bed, nice bath room and sitting area, Two tv's, frig and water. Great skylights. The breakfast on the porch overlooking a meadow was superb. Great innkeepers and so helpful. Directions were clear and correct. Wish we could have stayed for a week.... More

The Arbor Inn is not a hotel; it is a 5-suite B & B (with two more rooms in town).We drove up to the Arbor Inn and were welcomed by lush, bright flowers and the tinkling of a wind chime. Hostess Ellen greeted us at the front door, almost as though she had been standing there waiting for us, and... More

My son and I travelled to the area on a multi-town college trip to visit nearby Hamilton College. We arrived at the Inn after a 4-1/2 hour drive from our prior night's stay and Dave and Ellen welcomed these weary travelers with top-notch hospitality and a beautiful spot to relax. The Inn is located on the hill above the main... More

We recently had occasion to stay in the Arbor Inn when returning to Clinton for a Hamilton College reunion. The Inn was absolutely adorable – well maintained, inviting, and lovely. Our room was quaint comfortable with all the amenities you would need. Dave and Ellen were absolutely wonderful – friendly and solicitous and take pride in their inn. The breakfasts... More

Pru and I stayed at the Arbor Inn on May 27 & 28 and were delighted with the changes Dave and Ellen have made since our last visit in January. Dave has moved his office from the large room that separates the two wings of this B & B. It is now available to guests for various activities. There is... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at The Arbor Inn. Dave and Ellen are very personable and sweet. They took time out of their busy schedule to chat with us several times. Our suite in this very charming home is beautiful. We enjoyed our delicious breakfast on the lovely back porch which has a panoramic view of the... More
