Arbor Inn at Griffin House
Ranked #1 of 7 Clinton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We needed a place to stay on our way to cape cod. The inn was so lovely that we wanted to stay longer. Since we were on our way to a wedding we were unable to do so, but we will definitely return. The flower gardens were stunning. The food was delicious, the room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The owners are such pleasant people and attentive to all our needs.

The specialized experience of staying with Ellen and Dave never quit from the pleasant phone reservation with Ellen along the drive in through Dave's personalized ice bucket to chill our wine upon arrival. For college grads wanting a peak at the old haunts or newer parents a spot to recoup after a drop off, this spot can't be beat for convenience to the campus and fine hospitality.

We do not usually do reviews, but this was a very special experience. We went to Clinton to visit family, and had never been to this little town. We were referred to Arbor Inn at Griffin House, and did not know what to expect. We were greeted by Ellen, who was lovely and gracious. She quickly set us up in a beautiful room, with a KING sized bed, beautiful linens, and well appointed. We then met Dave, a great guy, who was warm and welcoming. We enjoyed the views from the patio, and went to meet our family. The next morning, we had an elegant breakfast and enjoyed it on the patio. We chatted with Ellen and Dave about ideas for things to do in the area. They quickly set us up with great suggestions and Google Directions. This was a life saver, and many of the roads in the area are remote and you can't get cell coverage. This was a great B&B, and Dave and Ellen are wonderful hosts. Definitely hit a home run on this one! Thank you Dave and Ellen!

Room Tip: All rooms were lovely, but we enjoyed having a King Sized Bed - so be sure to request this!

Comfortable accommodations just about a half mile off the Hamilton campus. Coffee maker is there just outside the room. Breakfast is in the dining room or in the breakfast area by the kitchen. We enjoy talking with Ellen and Dave during breakfast, and they could not be more accomodating. We feel so at home here we had to remember that we needed to settle up our bill.

One of the places that is managed by Arbor Inn is at 12 William Street right in the Village. The place is perfectly done, not old fashioned but rather just tastefully done. It isn't part of a house but rather sort of like an apartment with its own front door - cool. The amenities and service were just great. And check-in, terrific you get a code a day you open the door! No one to track down and disturb at whatever time you arrive; loved that part. A couple hitches come with being right in the village - the church bells go off in the morning and once in awhile you will hear vehicles. Lastly someone lives upstairs and you absolutely hear the walking around. Would I stay again? Absolutely.

Our family has stayed in the Williams Street apartments twice while our daughter was visiting Hamilton. The two units are really well situated right in the town of Clinton. Each visit, after the drive from the New York City area, we always look forward to checking in the room and the walking to Nola's for dinner. In the morning, my wife and I take a run in Clinton and then we always get coffee and breakfast at Cafe J, also a one minute walk from the Williams Street rooms. We have always stayed in #12 Williams Street which has been perfect for our family. The unit has a king size bed, a living room with a sleeper couch, and a kitchenette. It is a great experience being in the middle of a college town, one minute to restaurants and coffee and also being only a five minute drive to campus.

Room Tip: #12 Williams Street is perfect for couples or families who want to be in the village of Clinton, a o...

My husband and I spend the weekend at the inn with another couple and from beginning to end it was a perfect experience. Ellen and Dave don't miss a detail! You're greeted at the door and welcomed as friends. All the travelers coming in seemed to be very relaxed and made to feel at home. Breakfast was outstanding...you can choose to join Ellen and Dave in the kitchen or the nearby dining room. We sat to fresh fruit, pumpkin bread and cinnamon cake. Dave offers and assortment of juice and the Keurig nearby is loaded with great coffee and tea choices. Next comes Ellen's fresh made AMAZING breakfast entree. On Friday it was spinach quiche and on Saturday it was Eggs Benedict with salmon, asparagus and tomato...OUTSTANDING! The morning we left, Dave was outside shoveling and cleaned snow off all the cars! So sorry we had to leave; we're already scheduling a summer visit! Thank you Dave and Ellen for an exceptional weekend!
