“Wonderful place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay at The Artful Lodger. Susan and Tim, our hosts, were very nice and personable. They made us feel so comfortable and welcome. The breakfasts are outstanding with a different main choice everyday. Our room was spacious, super clean and the bed so comfortable. All the art was from local artists and was fantastic - we bought some of the pottery displayed in the parlor! We highly recommend staying but book early as we met many "regulars" who stay during the summer and fall!

Susan goes out of her way to ensure her guests are comfortable and enjoy their stay in Clinton. The house is beautiful and welcoming and the breakfast table companions friendly and interesting. We couldn't be happier with our stay.

Room Tip: Our king room was beautiful, spotless, and had this amazing bathroom with a skylight.

I brought my nine-year-old daughter to "The Artful Lodger" for a birthday gift and we both loved our brief stay. The garden was so pretty, on view from the comfortable back porch. The room was lovely, spit-spot clean, and everything we could need was available. The breakfast was so delicious! NIcest bed and breakfast I've ever stayed in!

The Artful Lodger has been our home away from home for 4 years. As soon as we dropped our daughter off for college we began looking in Clinton for a B&B. We found the Artful Lodger and needed to look no further. Conveniently located on the town green, this charming B&B is attractive inside and out. The lovely aroma of baking bread greets us upon arrival, as well as the ever-present platter of delicious cookies. The walls in the common areas serve as a gallery for local artists, changing frequently. Innkeepers Susan and Tim are perfect hosts and very knowledgeable about all that the area has to offer. We have been there so many times, well into double digits now, that we have stayed in all 5 of the neat and cozy bedrooms. Susan always serves an excellent breakfast with both hot and cold options, and really, really good coffee. Our trip in May was for our daughter's graduation. We had a wonderful time, a delightful stay at the Artful Lodger, and have found ourselves hoping that we can find an excuse to come back soon for a visit at our first and favorite B&B.

I have stayed at the Artful Lodger several times over the last four years, first when my son had an overnight visit at a local college and then for a variety of reasons while he attended school there. Each time I have been very pleased with the cleanliness of the lodgings, the tasteful decor, the more than adequate breakfasts, and the level of contact with Susan and Tim, the hosts. As a testament to the accomodations, my last visit was with my husband who usually dislikes B&B's because he generally feels as if he is intruding into someone's home, he does not like the overly decorated productions some places stage, and the frequent lack of modern amenities which some describe as charm...he was very, very comfortable at the Artful Lodger and is now willing to try staying at other B&B's in the future, as long as they are like the Artful Lodger. Additionally, Susan and Tim are wonderful hosts. They have always been available when needed for dinner recommendations or advice about the area. One time they lent me their daughter's CD player so I could listen to a book-on-tape and then they mailed me the CD I had forgotten when I left there. Susan and Tim were also consistently courteous and friendly without being cloying, something I really appreciated. In response to one of the negative reviews... a B&B is a business and you are in someone else's home. I think courtesy and respect should go both ways; I always felt that the Artful Lodger struck just the right balance; I would highly recommend it.

Thank you! It was a pleasure meeting your husband on your last visit (we hope it's not actually your last visit!). If innkeepers had a forum for rating guests, you would earn 5 stars!

We have stayed at the Artful Lodger from the time our daughter came to Clinton for a college visit. Susan & Tim are always welcoming and we enjoy sharing breakfast with fellow guests.
As we run our own B&B in NYC we appreciate all of the small touches provided. We hope we will have some reason to return now that our daughter has graduated.

I discovered The Artful Lodger after several unpleasant stays at the Holiday Inn in New Hartford. It was like finding a second home. I travel to Clinton 5-6 times a year and always stay at The Artful Lodger. Susan and Tim are lovely hosts who are very accommodating and yet respect your privacy. The B&B is spotless and has a warm, comfortable homey feel to it. Breakfasts are homemade and tasty. I highly recommend staying here.
