College Visit Home Base
Hamilton College
& Colgate University

The Arbor Inn at Griffin House is located less than one half mile from Hamilton College and offers the closest overnight accommodations to campus. We are also conveniently located twenty five minutes from Colgate University and very often our guests choose to make us their “home base” when touring both colleges. After driving through the beautiful Hamilton College campus, you will find The Arbor Inn situated on Griffin Road just past Love Field (Hamilton track and soccer field), the baseball and softball diamonds and the college golf course.  When it is time to dine or explore, the historic village of Clinton, NY is just down “the hill” where you can enjoy our local shops and restaurants or stroll around the “New England style” village green.  Our location is also convenient to other area colleges including Utica College, Munson Proctor Williams Institute, SUNYIT and MVCC.
