Delightful. The room we chose overlooked the historic Clinton Town Green and Gazebo. We were warmly greeted by our host Susan, who is delightful! Upon entering our room around sunset and gazing out of the windows we looked out at a magical scence. A dusting of snow and all the trees lit up for Christmas with little twinkling white lights...one of those magical moments when life slows down and takes on a feeling of peace and comfort. Everything was excellent, the bed very comfy, the breakfst devine, and the Inn is beautifuly furnished. All the comforts of home with a lovely historic ambiance. Susan & Tim are both lovely, warm & welcoming. We will most certainly visit again. And P.S. ... Don't even give the fire department alarm another thought...after all life is precious and saving lives is what that is all about now, isn't it?

Room Tip: We stayed in the Kirkland room. It was lovely.

This B &B is in the center of The village of Clinton. I love the fact that you can walk all over town from here. We were in town for a High School reunion and as usual had a great time staying with Susan and Tim. We have stayed there many times and would not stay any where else when in the area.

We lucked out and were able to get a room on Fallcoming weekend. Our son was visiting Hamilton, and the B&B certainly helped add to the warm and welcoming experience we had all weekend long. We're looking forward to many more trips!

PS Yes, the fire department alarm went off early one morning - not a big deal.

We have stayed at this B&B before but recently had a relatively long stay there while visiting family. Over that time our hosts Susan and Tim managed to strike a balance between providing gracious hospitality and comfortable friendliness. We appreciated the healthy breakfasts, being able to come and go freely, and a good bed! The other guests were always interesting people to talk to over breakfast and we managed to eventually sleep through the fire alarms. We will return!

The Artful Lodger is the best Bed and Breakfast we have ever found. Its proprietors, Tim and Susan Sweetland (a name that reflects their personalities), have become like members of the family over the last 5-years in which we stayed in the establishment literally a dozen times or more. While our daughter, Sara, attended nearby Hamilton College, we were lucky enough to win the B&B's lottery for in-demand weekends. Each room is beautifully decorated, affordable, and the housekeeping is meticulous. The location on the idealic Clinton village green makes each weekend magic with wonderful nearby restaurants and shops. Their breakfast table frequently includes elegant hot egg-based casseroles, breakfast meats, yogurt fruit/granola parfaits, and/or cereal, and juice, tea or coffee, and get this, fresh baked oatmeal bread and jam made the evening before (the smell of which wafts through the hallways). The breakfast table often includes friendly intelligent conversation with lumminaries from around the country (or the world) and their bright-eyed sons or daughters making college visitis or attending nearby Hamilton or Colgate. The owners offer a compiled book of local restaurant menus, recommendations and will do anything to make their guests feel at home, including placing fresh-baked cookies under a glass cover in the hallway. The walls frequently include beautiful new rotating exhibitions of paintings from local artists for sale and conversation. We hesitate to tout this small town nirvana any further for fear of shuting ourselves out of room availability for future fall Adirondack weekends now that Sara has graduated.

Room Tip: Each room has unique features and beutiful accoutrements, but aim for Room 5 with a king-sized bed...

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.
