We were taking the college tour and stayed at this inn. The hospitality cannot be beat and neither can the breakfast which is included. We enjoyed not only the proprietors but also the other guest. The location is close to the college and the accommodations are comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

I am a year late in writing this, but better late than never. We wife and two young boys stayed in the William Street apartment in Feb. 2014. It was a cold outside and there was a lot of snow on the ground. The stay was perfect in every way. There is a lovely little green one can walk around... More

This is my fourth visit to Arbor Inn and, as always, we had a delightful stay. Each visit has been a week long so we really get to know the owners and try all of their fabulous breakfast dishes. David and Ellen are very gracious and welcoming. Good cooks too! Ask for the peach upside down pancake! David brushed the... More

Our son is a sophomore at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY. We live 6 ½ hours away but we still take every opportunity to visit him that the college provides. It’s a long, tedious drive but other than seeing him, we are comforted by the thought that we will be staying at the Arbor Inn of Clinton. Just arriving at... More

The Arbor Inn is located in small town atmosphere Clinton, New York. The Inn is situated on a quiet road bordered on one side by a quiet corner of the Hamilton College campus and on the other side by farm land. The mostly rural area around Clinton provides a complementary backdrop for this meticulously kept Inn. The public spaces and... More

My mother and I spent week at the Arbor Inn and I have only great memories. No detail was overlooked. Comfortable beds and linens, immaculately clean, charmingly decorated, delicious breakfasts, and the most gracious of hosts. We left feeling as though we had made new friends. Ellen and Dave have raised the bar of B&B stays!

Stayed at Arbor Inn while visiting daughter at Hamilton College. Dave and Ellen are great hosts. The rooms are well appointed, mattresses comfortable and the availability of coffee, tea, water and cookies is a wonderful touch. Breakfast is varied and delicious. Usually one hot dish with fruit, cereals, homemade muffins and bread. You will not go away hungry. Pretty front... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the Berkshire Suite and loved it! Slept one of my best night's sleep in that bed! We couldn't hear a thing. It was so quiet and peaceful. The Inn is set out in the corn fields near a dairy farm with deer scattered between the fields. This place is very lovingly... More

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast and it was absolutely wonderful. Our room was beautifully decorated, comfortable and very, very clean. The private attached bathroom was very clean and beautiful. The owners, Dave and Ellen, are friendly and very accommodating. Our breakfast was delicious!

Located on the outskirts of Hamilton's campus, the Arbor Inn is on a quiet road adjacent to a farm. The house is beautiful, roomy, and very nicely appointed. We stayed in a suite in an addition to the house, which was clean and comfortable. The hosts couldn't be friendlier. The food was great - breakfast was eggs and fresh fruit... More
