Curled up in front of the fire on my fifth annual visit---Ellen and David really do make it feel like we are coming to visit old friends in a beautiful home and setting. Charming, comfortable and cozy rooms with windows looking out at the snow. Delicious breakfasts including eggs florentine, homemade granola, fresh fruit and baked breads. Lots of interesting...

Quiet, clean, and comfortable. Perfect mix of ambience and modern amenities. Ellen makes a great breakfast. The selection is nice. Keurig machines are a nice touch too. Definitely the nicest place in Clinton. Stayed 3 nights in the Chesapeake room and it was lovely. The back yard is beautiful. Very scenic.

We stayed for one night with our two daughters in the Berkshire Suite. The night before, Ellen called to ask us how we wanted the room set up. When we arrived, there were (2) comfy chairs opened as twin beds. There was a separate sitting area (where one of the twins was located) and the suite was perfect for our... More

We arrived at the Arbor Inn and were greeted at the door by Dave and Ellen. We immediately felt welcomed and felt so comfortable with these gracious hosts. The rooms were cozy, immaculate and fresh and the attention to detail was amazing. Ellen's breakfast was everything you could have wished for...so delicious and pleasing. And the weather was perfect so... More

The Arbor Inn at Griffin House was a welcome comfortable stay for my son and I on our way to Rocheter. The entire house is tastefully decorated and was open to visitors to use. Our room (the Rockport Suite) was very well appointed with a separate sitting room with pull out bed for my son and a good ensuite bathroom.... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. The innkeepers were warm and friendly. The rooms were cozy and the surroundings beautiful. There were little touches like individually wrapped homemade cookies, mints and chilled bottled water available all day. Breakfast was delicious as well.

This is a beautiful place in the country behind Hamilton College. We had the Berkshire Room. Clean, comfortable bed, nice bath room and sitting area, Two tv's, frig and water. Great skylights. The breakfast on the porch overlooking a meadow was superb. Great innkeepers and so helpful. Directions were clear and correct. Wish we could have stayed for a week.... More

The Arbor Inn is not a hotel; it is a 5-suite B & B (with two more rooms in town).We drove up to the Arbor Inn and were welcomed by lush, bright flowers and the tinkling of a wind chime. Hostess Ellen greeted us at the front door, almost as though she had been standing there waiting for us, and... More

My son and I travelled to the area on a multi-town college trip to visit nearby Hamilton College. We arrived at the Inn after a 4-1/2 hour drive from our prior night's stay and Dave and Ellen welcomed these weary travelers with top-notch hospitality and a beautiful spot to relax. The Inn is located on the hill above the main... More
