Greeted by the innkeeper with a smile! she checked me in my room on the lower level next to the dinning room. Room was cozy, shower was nice and hot. Breakfast was memorable with Spice Pancakes bacon was peppered thick and coffee was strong! What more could a lonely traveler need!

Entire home is simply gorgeous. Room was beautifully appointed, comfortable and roomy enough to accommodate rollaway bed for our son. Everything was impeccably clean. Owner Eleanor Brotherton was cordial and very knowledgeable about the history of the home and the area. Breakfast was delicious both mornings - ample portions, with a number of tasty "courses" - first morning was crumb... More

House was quiet. Breakfast was delightful. Eleanor prepared a gluten free meal consisting of eggs, sausage, gluten free waffles w/apples & syrup as well as melon, fresh... More

The Brambles Inn has some very good reviews, but our experience was just OK. We've been to Potsdam before and knew a bit about the town, but had a hard time finding the place (my GPS isn't always right-though she was in this case) because the sign was completely covered by vines and such. We were in a room on... More

First of all, the lovely caretaker/owner of the property, Eleanor, was a breath of fresh air. She was warm, inviting, and incredibly knowledgeable about the area and about the history surrounding the inn. Eleanor’s attention to detail really shows in the tasteful and elegant way in which she furnished/decorated the B&B. Every room has a unique, cozy quality to it... More

We only stayed at the Brambles for one night in June, 2013, but we very much enjoyed our stay. The house was attractive and interesting, with antique features. It was also very quiet and our room was clean and comfortable. The hostess was very nice, and knowledgeable about the area. This will definitely be our first choice if we visit... More
