“Wonderful place to stay with fantastic hosts”
Reviewed November 20, 2010

We stayed here to visit our daughter at Potsdam University. We were there for 7 nights and loved every minute. The property is so beautifully furnished and maintained in its Victorian era style. The owners were wonderful to us and nothing was too much trouble. The first room we stayed in was lovely with period furnishing and very comfortable bed. As we were there for a week the owners then very kindly offered us a bigger room as it became available and just added to whole postive expereince of staying there. The breakfasts were unique and varied each day - all homemade .
The only minor downside was the steam heating system that we were not used to and did wake us up - but does add to the charming character of the place. I just want to go back!!!

We stayed at Brambles Inn and Gardens while our daughter attended her orientation at Potsdam. Eleanor welcomed us and told us where our room was and asked what time we wanted breakfast. My husband had to leave about 5:30 for work and wouldn't be able to stay for breakfast. She offered to make him a bag of goodies to eat on his way to work. The next morning he found his goodie bag in the butler's pantry and headed to work. He called to let me know that it contained a homemade blueberry "crumble", a pastry, grapes and juice...he was very impressed with his breakfast..."Thank you Eleanor".
We loved the room...it was comfortable, lovely and I didn't want to leave. I couldn't stay for breakfast either as I needed to get to the college...but I will be back and will take in the breakfast next time...I am looking forward to it. Thank you again for welcoming us into your home. I will recommend you to all my friends.
