We were visiting Colgate and Hamilton Colleges with our high school son (doing the normal college search) and stayed at Holcomb's B&B. We had a room with a queen and twin with private bath. The room was large, very well decorated and as all the reviews cite, very clean. Karen is a wonderful host and her family has done a... More

It was our second time staying there, and it was great. The house was clean, comfortable, and we felt right at home. Hocomb's was actually a Plan B when we decided to visit our son and the Colgate Inn was full, and so we didn't expect much. But the first stay there was absolutely wonderful and so we decided to...

Always VERY clean (I think Karen presses the sheets). Karen & Dick are great hosts. Nice breakfast included. Close to Colgate on a quiet dead end street. We enjoy the other guests - other Colgate families. Nice farmer's market downtown on Sat mornings. Plan ahead - book early.

Cleanest b and b I've ever been in. Very comfortable room and bed, wonderful breakfast. Shower with good water pressure. Karen is a terrific host. A perfect stay in Hamilton. Did I say clean? This place is immaculate.

Very nice stay. The Holcombs were wonderful hosts. The house is immaculate. Owners are very responsive-- I emailed her late one night and was surprised to get an immediate response. I chose the yellow room which was the smallest of their five rooms as it was just me. Had a comfortable double bed, TV, and private bathroom. The house had... More

Holcomb is one the finest B&B's I have stayed in and I have stayed in B&B's all over the world. The outstanding country antiques mixed with the contemporary decor was amazing. I was in Hamilton, NY attending a conference at Colgate University. Didn't want to attend the conference, because I wanted to spend more time in this wonderful B&B. The... More

I highly recommend Holcomb's B&B. I was pleasantly surprised with how beautiful it was and the hospitality that Karen showed. From the gorgeous decorations to the heated bathroom floor it was just perfect! I can't wait to go back!

Stayed here on a recent trip to the area visiting colleges with our son. Karen was very responsive to our emails/requests and accommodating to our arrival time (which was much later than we had planned). Holcomb's was beautifully decorated, had spacious rooms and the breakfast was yummy. Would love to come back and stay again if we are in the... More

We recently stayed at Holcomb's Bed and Breakfast during a visit to Colgate University. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for four (2 adults, 2 teens). The breakfast was excellent and had something for everyone. Karen and her family are super friendly and even let our younger son stay behind and watch T.V. while we took... More
