The home is charming... this B & B is very informal! Upon entering, you walk into the kitchen which is filled with laugher and friendship. Karen is delightful, she is one of those rare people who opens her heart and home to serve others. The house has a nice eating area and common room as well as outdoor seating. The... More

Underscores the attraction of staying in a B&B when traveling. Very inviting. Delightful hosts. Immaculately clean room/bath with solid amenities (including good lighting for putting on makeup - take notes, Marriott!). Breakfast offering was, if anything, over the top, but certainly a great variety of well prepared food to choose from. Pleasant, easy walk to town for other meals. Enjoyed... More

This is still the cleanest B&B I've ever stayed at! There, I wanted to say that first. My husband and I stayed here the year Holcomb's opened. It was great then and with the Holcomb family's hard work, the experience has only gotten better. Since the family doesn't live on premise (but someone from the family stays here every night)...

This is the first b&b I have stayed in since moving to New York and we only stayed as the local hotels were full. I am really pleased they were! Karen treats her guests as family members and we felt really comfortable. We were visiting Colgate uni and Karen provided great advice about the uni, places to eat etc. Rooms... More

This was our first visit to Holcomb's B&B and we arrived late on a snowy evening. The owner stayed up to make sure we arrived safely and greeted us as if we were family. The room was spacious, spotless and equipped with every amenity we might have wanted. Breakfast was delicious and thoughtfully prepared. I highly recommend a stay here... More

We have had the pleasure of staying at Holcomb's twice in the past 12 months. It is spotless, beautiful, and run by wonderful people. They always make you feel right at home. The property is at a great location with plenty of parking. Better yet, it is near the center of town and Colgate University. The Nicolo's Blue Bell, Pa.

I stayed at Holcomb's B&B this past weekend with my husband and 2 young daughters. The Holcomb's were so welcoming and couldn't have been more accommodating. Our room was spacious and updated, and fit our needs perfectly. Every need seem to be an anticipated. Breakfast was delicious with a wide assortment of items from which to choose and baked goods...

Our first time staying in a B & B! The Holcombs were so warm and friendly especially to out of towners from across the country! The smell of fresh coffee and bacon every morning! We have already booked for the next time we are in town!!

My family and I stayed at Karen's lovely Holcomb's Bed and Breakfast in August for 6 nights, while we were dropping my daughter off at Colgate University. The house was very cute, very well-kept, clean, and perfect location (walking distance from the main town area). Karen is a wonderful person, she woke up at 5am everyday to prepare fresh muffins...

I stayed at Holcomb's when I was in Hamilton for a family reunion. It was extremely hot that weekend, and Holcomb's does not have central air-conditioning so I was worried about our comfort level. Our room's AC kept us beautifully cool. And the main floor of the house remained pleasant. Karen is an excellent host. The hose is lovely and... More
