The specialized experience of staying with Ellen and Dave never quit from the pleasant phone reservation with Ellen along the drive in through Dave's personalized ice bucket to chill our wine upon arrival. For college grads wanting a peak at the old haunts or newer parents a spot to recoup after a drop off, this spot can't be beat for... More

We do not usually do reviews, but this was a very special experience. We went to Clinton to visit family, and had never been to this little town. We were referred to Arbor Inn at Griffin House, and did not know what to expect. We were greeted by Ellen, who was lovely and gracious. She quickly set us up in... More

Comfortable accommodations just about a half mile off the Hamilton campus. Coffee maker is there just outside the room. Breakfast is in the dining room or in the breakfast area by the kitchen. We enjoy talking with Ellen and Dave during breakfast, and they could not be more accomodating. We feel so at home here we had to remember that... More

One of the places that is managed by Arbor Inn is at 12 William Street right in the Village. The place is perfectly done, not old fashioned but rather just tastefully done. It isn't part of a house but rather sort of like an apartment with its own front door - cool. The amenities and service were just great. And... More

Our family has stayed in the Williams Street apartments twice while our daughter was visiting Hamilton. The two units are really well situated right in the town of Clinton. Each visit, after the drive from the New York City area, we always look forward to checking in the room and the walking to Nola's for dinner. In the morning, my... More

My husband and I spend the weekend at the inn with another couple and from beginning to end it was a perfect experience. Ellen and Dave don't miss a detail! You're greeted at the door and welcomed as friends. All the travelers coming in seemed to be very relaxed and made to feel at home. Breakfast was outstanding...you can choose... More

January 26,2014 - We just returned home from a lovely weekend at the Arbor Inn of Clinton. Our accommodations were impeccable! The Rockport Suite was cozy and comfortable on a blustery, cold weekend. Dave and Ellen were wonderful hosts. Our breakfasts were delicious! Ellen served a garden vegetable crustless quiche with fresh fruit and homemade breakfast breads on Saturday and... More

This was our second stay at this beautiful and well-managed Inn. The first was in mid-September, 2013 for a long weekend. Most recent visit was Jan 10-23. On both visits, Pru was consulting (leadership training) with Hamilton College. In September we stayed in the lovely Vineyard room (Pru's favorite) and in January the Berkshire spacious suite was ideal for our... More

An exceptional lodging choice in the midst of Oneida County’s "Getaway Region" offering five guest rooms and suites in a picturesque upstate New York country setting. The Arbor Inn at Griffin House is located just 10 minutes and four turns away from exit #32 (Westmoreland) off the NYS Thruway) and on this short drive to the inn you will pass through the beautiful Hamilton College campus (chartered in 1812). Our ideal location makes us a popular choice for overnight lodging when traveling across the state or as a base when planning your upstate New York vacation. Guests enjoy our quiet setting on five peaceful acres but appreciate our close proximity to the picturesque Village of Clinton where they may stroll back in time to a village filled with one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants and cafes. During the summer months, you might be lucky enough to take in a Tuesday night concert on our "New England-style" village green or shop at the weekly Farmer’s Market held Thursdays throughout the summer.Bed & Breakfast accommodations are offered in five well appointed guest rooms and suites located in both the Main House and the Courtyard Wing. Our 1800’s property has been beautifully renovated and expanded resulting in a wonderful combination of elegance and vintage charm.
