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.

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.

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An exceptional lodging choice in the midst of Oneida County’s "Getaway Region" offering five guest rooms and suites in a picturesque upstate New York country setting. The Arbor Inn at Griffin House is located just 10 minutes and four turns away from exit #32 (Westmoreland) off the NYS Thruway) and on this short drive to the inn you will pass through the beautiful Hamilton College campus (chartered in 1812). Our ideal location makes us a popular choice for overnight lodging when traveling across the state or as a base when planning your upstate New York vacation. Guests enjoy our quiet setting on five peaceful acres but appreciate our close proximity to the picturesque Village of Clinton where they may stroll back in time to a village filled with one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants and cafes. During the summer months, you might be lucky enough to take in a Tuesday night concert on our "New England-style" village green or shop at the weekly Farmer’s Market held Thursdays throughout the summer.Bed & Breakfast accommodations are offered in five well appointed guest rooms and suites located in both the Main House and the Courtyard Wing. Our 1800’s property has been beautifully renovated and expanded resulting in a wonderful combination of elegance and vintage charm. Amenities for the most discerning of travelers include complimentary wireless internet access, private baths, televisions, 24 hour coffee/tea availability and breakfast served each morning. The well kept grounds are filled with gardens and the front porch is the perfect spot for enjoying the upstate New York surroundings. ... more   less
