While built in the 19th century with a daunting aesthetic it was very clean, quiet and comfortable. It is a combo B&B, apartment building and museum. Totally unique and an interesting part of local history. We stayed in the two story suite in one of the towers and it was nicely appointed with a modern bathroom and shower.

We stayed here one night on the way to Ontario, eschewing chain motels. It's an old, interesting place. The grounds are beautiful. The accommodations were fine. We had a very small room on the first floor, with a large bathroom. AC was available and necessary. The place did smell dusty. And the restaurant is now closed, so breakfast was a... More

Do not be thinking this is an ordinary hotel experience. It's much more personal. You can use it as just a hotel stay but you'd be missing out on learning about a very interesting group of people who lived there communally in the 19th century attempting to create "heaven on earth." We were lucky enough to have Joe, a volunteer,... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Oneida Community Mansion House and experienced the ambiance and character of our 19th century ancestors. Stately Victorian accommodations plus lots of interesting information regarding these innovative, enlightened people led by the charismatic John Humphrey Noyes.

My bed and bath in the historic Oneida Community Mansion House was clean, quiet, very comfortable and located right around the corner from an excellent restaurant that is located on-grounds. The self-guided tour of the facility garnered beautiful gardens, information about the eccentric founders of this utopian community experiment and a view of the facility that invited imagining it when...

We usually search for unique places to stay and the Oneida Mansion House fits that bill. The building itself was once used as resident/school/common area for the utopian Oneida community during the early 1800's. Our garden view room was huge with comfortable bed. There was a variety of yogurt, fruit, and breads in the room for a self-serve continental breakfast.... More

This place was unique - a large rambling 19th centruy house with plenty to see. The grounds have giant beautiful trees, a nice garden, and plenty of lawn to ramble about on. The hotel portion isn't modern by any means, although it has free WiFi. So, if you want a sleek and angular modern hotel, look elsewhere. That said, there... More

My husband and I traveled to Oneida for a family friend's wedding and we were shut out of all the area hotels and inns because of Colgate University's and Hamilton College's parent weekends. The Mansion House had one vacancy and we happily took it. We took local wedding attendees on a tour of the Mansion House which gives a pretty... More

An incredible alternative to a regular Inn or B&B. The other reviews do a great job describing the specifics so I won't here. Although my boyfriend always insists it was haunted we had a lovely stay. Read your history about the Oneida community beforehand to enrich your stay.

Just stayed here for two nights while at Bouckville Antique Show. Got a wonderful tour a part of the package. Place was quiet except the night of the wedding but even that was tolerable for the sake of the history of the place. Spoke with a volunteer gardener. Got good restaurant recommendations. Walked the grounds and nearby neighborhood. Spoke with... More
