When our kids and grandkids come for the holidays, we give up our room and stay at the Artful Lodger. We have found that works the best, the kids and grand kids have a great time together and when we're tired we go, have quiet, restful sleep and a great breakfast. Everyone wins! Dick & Joan Compson

My husband and I needed to get away from the crazy life of parents with teenagers. We knew right where to go - The Artful Lodger!! Susan and Tim have created an atmosphere that provides rest and relaxation the entire stay. The room was large and extremely comfortable, the entire home decorated beautifully and the breakfast soufflé was beyond words.... More

We had another wonderful weekend in Clinton, NY and our accommodations were perfect. I wish we had more time to enjoy the house but the weather was gorgeous we were outside the entire weekend. Our room was clean, quiet, and very charming. The Swetland's are kind hosts who do a wonderful job at taking care of their guests. Our breakfast... More

On the square in Clinton New York lies a hidden gem!! This B&B is owned and operated by a couple whose culinary delights and whose wonderful smiles make each and every day a great day.

The inn is pretty, clean, warm, friendly, and the breakfast was perfect! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to all my friends and family! It's location, right across the green in the pretty town of Clinton, near the cute shots and restaurants, it perfect. Enjoy!

We recently returned to The Artful Lidger for our third visit, timed to coordinate with the popular Madison Bouckeville Antiques Show. Susan and Tim were as cordial and helpful as ever, and the facilities remained immaculate and tasteful. Anyone who feels that the hosts are not sufficiently friendly has perhaps never had the dubious pleasure of an innkeeper's sharing his... More

We arrived late on a Friday night for a one-night stay. The door opened with the key code and we had the place to ourselves, as if we were ambling into someone's warm and well-appointed home, fruit on the kitchen counter and all. Beds were comfortable and room was large although bathroom tiny, with sink in the bedroom. Breakfast was... More

Totally agree with the previous "poor" ratings. Felt like we were intruders asking for special service. We arrived at breakfast on time, ordered fruit parfaits, and waited 25 minutes. No food. We had an appointment to keep and asked for something to go, which they said they couldn't do. So we left without a breakfast and without an apology. The... More

A frequent visitor to Clinton NY because of my affiliation with Hamilton College, I have stayed at a number of places, on and off campus. The Artful Lodger is a relatively new B&B, but it feels as settled and comfortable as an old shoe, but not as worn. The rooms are spacious and decorated with old American furniture and local...

The Artful Lodger is a beautifully decorated and comfortable B&B, convenient to Hamilton College. Doors opened promptly at 4 p.m. for check-in and we received a warm welcome from Tim and Susan. We stayed in the Cleveland Room, located upstairs toward the back of the house. Our room was lovely - sparkling clean and fresh - with great linens which... More
