“Charm and character”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Spent evening of June 30th at this charming bed and breakfast. This home is lovely filled with charm and items that must have taken a lifetime to collect. We spent the evening in carriage room. Caught a glimpse of some of the other rooms and all were lovely. We had two seating times for breakfast-8 or 9 am we choose the later time slot. Dining room is lovely. We were served this absolutely delicious apple crumble cake, orange juice, fruit cup, scones and a plates of home fries, bacon and a mini egg dish served in a ramekin dish. Choice of coffee and tea. Would definitely recommend. Met a lovely couple from Albany New York and enjoyed our morning breakfast immensely.

We only stayed at the Brambles for one night in June, 2013, but we very much enjoyed our stay. The house was attractive and interesting, with antique features. It was also very quiet and our room was clean and comfortable. The hostess was very nice, and knowledgeable about the area. This will definitely be our first choice if we visit the area again. Highly recommended.

We spent a raining Friday night at the Brambles Inn in Potsdam. The weather was terrible but our room was toasty warm due to awesome old fashioned radiator heating. Our room with private bathroom was cozy and comfortable with interesting antique furniture. Walk (in the rain) to downtown Main Street only took about 5 minutes. We would highly recommend eating at Hot Tamale, too. The country breakfast was delicious; yogurt with homemade granola, fresh blueberry pancakes, peppery bacon and eggs with all the coffee and juice we wanted. Our host was very gracious and answered all our questions about the beautiful house. The restorations were very well done. Our stay was excellent and we would highly recommend the Brambles Inn!!!!

Room Tip: Our room was at the front of the house; Thomas Clark room.

This Victorian house has many features to delight the eye: public rooms with beautifully colored walls, framed prints galore of birds and wildlife, authentic Victorian furniture with its color, carved woods, and jarndenieres & plants. It is very convenient to schools in Potsdam and to the small downtown. The welcome was friendly, the breakfasts subtantial -- great coffee, so important! Breakfast is served at a long table in the dining room -- very convivial.

After dropping my daughter at camp (and many trips up & down the stairs), Brambles was a great place to rest and relax. Very conveniently located to SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson. Quiet and comfortable with a great breakfast before I headed off the next morning

We spent one night at the Brambles Inn and Gardens. My husband is a Clarkson alumni and we went to visit his undergrad campus for the first time in many years. Staying at The Brambles Inn was so comfy sort of like staying at Grandma's. The house is decorated in a Victorian style. A great deal of care went into the upgrading of the house. Breakfast was just fabulous, and much more than we expected. Eleanor is a gracious hostess. I highly recommend The Brambles Inn and Gardens

What a great B&B! We stayed here for the first time this weekend after years of staying at the Clarkson Inn for our visits to the North Country. The Brambles is now my first choice. The inn is decorated beautifully, and our room was lovely. Breakfast was excellent and the innkeepers were friendly. It is also a nice walk into the main street area.
