This was our fifth time staying here and every visit has been lovely. This charming Inn perched right on the edge of the Hamilton College campus offers everything you could ask for in comfort and hospitality. From the moment we first contacted Carol and Bob, they were warm, welcoming and wonderful to deal with. Booking is a breeze and each room has its own delightful charm.
We always feel as if Carol and Bob are welcoming us into their own home and it is clear that they
truly love the business of Inn-keeping. Carol cooks up an excellent, sumptuous & heathy breakfast each morning for you, which is more like a fancy brunch. Quiche, homemade muffins, fruit salad and yoghurt are among the offerings. (She can also do gluten-free or plain eggs). This visit we sat on the veranda and watched the bluebirds on their property as we ate our breakfast on a warm May morning, delightful! (Also our daughter loves the delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies Carol has waiting for us upon arrival). I've slept like a baby during each visit, as they have new, fancy mattresses that are very comfy. The "Hotel Collection" bath towels are super soft and fluffy and seem to be brand new. Bob set us up for dinner at a new restaurant in town, that we hadn't even heard of, and he seems very knowledgeable about the Clinton area. I would highly recommend The Arbor Inn in Clinton, and we will be back again!
