Stayed one night with my daughter while visiting Colgate University. Karen, the hostess, is lovely, and the room was very large and clean. We arrived late, so Karen sent instructions for getting to our room upon arrival. There were amenities in the bathroom. Room had a gas fireplace. We woke up to coffee with fresh scones, bacon, eggs and oatmeal.... More

If I could have given this six stars I would have. The owner stayed up late to make sure we got in safely and then got up early to make sure we started the day with her delicious breakfast! The beds were warm and cozy . The proximity to the school was amazing and I will stay there again with... More

We stayed at Holcomb's in Sept('16) to watch our daughter's team play against Colgate. The first indication that things would be non-traditional was when I texted Karen asking when check-in was........her reply was that check-in was whenever you arrived. The room/linens/etc were top notch. The environment was spotless, but welcoming at the same time with a liberal open door(come and... More

I stayed at Holcomb's and felt right at home. Karen is so welcoming. I was there two weeks in a row for work and I don't think I have ever had such a good night sleep away from home. Karen made sure I was comfortable at all time. If you are in the Hamilton area, this is where you want... More

My son and I stayed at this B&B while visiting Colgate University. We were positively surprised by the house in general and by our room. Karen made us feel at home, with a warm welcome and excellent "on demand" breakfast. The experience was worth every penny we paid and more. If we come back to Hamilton, we will certainly try...

Karen also made the best baked goods. We wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be recommending it to our colleagues who have to... More

This is a wonderful B & B in Hamilton, NY just outside of "downtown" Hamilton. Cleanest place I likely have ever stayed!!! Karen is a wonderful host who under estimates her ability to provide a wonderful breakfast. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. One of the best beds I have slept on away from home in a long time. We... More

The inn is beautiful! All of the rooms are spotless and very comfortable. Karen is a wonderful inn keeper. The breakfast choices are above and beyond what most Bed and Breakfasts provide. Truly a great place to stay!

Karen really goes out of her way to make you feel at home. The place is very clean, rooms are spacious and comfortable and she makes a great breakfast. Very close to Colgate. A nice place to stay if you're in the area.
