“Sanctuary in the heart of Clinton”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is a warm and inviting family friendly atmosphere. The queen room was spotless and beautifully decorated which made us feel at home. The breakfast menu contained the right choices for even the pickiest of eaters and they were all delicious. The host and hostess provided enough information about the area to make your stay enjoyable. The location was perfect for us to enjoy the restaurants, and the park across the street. If you are looking for a centrally located convenient place to stay in Clinton the Artful Lodger is ideal. if ever we are in the area we will definitely return and would recommend to friends and family.

While this house is cute enough, there is an incredibly loud emergency and fire dept. alarm across the street. As we were retiring, the owners warned us about it. It went off twice, once at 10:00 pm and once in the middle of the night. It woke all four of us and I for one did not fall back asleep.

Four people were tired and grumpy people in the morning. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place.

We are so sorry the fire horn disturbed your sleep. We agree that it is louder than it needs to be, and will take your concern to the Village Board,

We really enjoy visiting new B&Bs and this was one of the nicest we have been to. Service was friendly without being obtrusive, the room was spacious and spanking clean, and the breakfast was extremely pleasant and tasty. It was nice to have appealing restaurant choices within walking distance, and little extra touches were abundant and appreciated. We hope to return!

This is an extremely elegant B&B! Tastefully decorated, peaceful and relaxing, situated across the green in the beautiful village of Clinton. Rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. What more can you say?
Good places to eat only a few yards away.

We stayed for one night in April as part of a week of college visits. The place is certainly beautiful, but when I spoke with the owner the vibe I got was been there, done that, I'll answer your question but don't expect more.

What was most frustrating is that we needed to leave by 8:15 in the morning to get to Colgate for their morning tour. There was another family staying there trying to do the same thing, We both mentioned this, and asked if we could have breakfast at 8:00, which was the earliest option. At 7:50, the owner wasn't even downstairs yet (hence the vibe of been there, seen kids visiting schools before, you'll get breakfast when it 's ready). We all ended up both late and unnecessarily stressed.

We're glad you appreciated the beauty of our inn, and sorry you were late for your appointment. For future stays (and future travelers), our hot breakfast service begins promptly at 8 every morning, with much of the preparation happening "behind the scenes". An innkeeper's day is very long, and we have learned over time the importance of keeping to a schedule. If your plans prevent you from joining us for the hot breakfast, please let us know in advance, and we are happy to arrange for a self-serve continental.

Stayed here 2 nights in June associated with a Hamilton College visit. Great location, spotless, very nice owners, excellent furnishings and breakfast. I've stayed at one other B&B in Hamilton and actually liked it, but this one was even better. This will be our B&B of choice in Clinton.

We stopped at the Artful Lodger for an overnight on our way to the Adirondacks. It felt like home as soon as we walked in and were greeted by the warm and friendly innkeepers, Susan and Tim. After we unpacked, we took a stroll around town, which is just steps away. We had already eaten on our drive, but I wish we wouldn't have. There were several restaurants that I would've like to have tried. In the evening, back at the Lodger, we lounged in the downstairs on comfy couches, drank complimentary coffee and bottled water, and looked through books from their eclectic collection. There were also paintings and ceramics from local artists to check out (we bought a beautiful homemade coffee mug for a very reasonable price.) The room was perfectly clean and comfortable and the sheets smelled like fresh linens should. Breakfast the next morning was generous, hot and hearty, with a few different items to choose from (I had the frittata and it was delicious!) All in all, an excellent place to spend a night, a weekend or even a week! Definitely check out the Artful Lodger if you're in the area.
