Top-Notch Country Inn Near Colgate University

“I’ve stayed at the Colgate Inn many times, and it just keeps getting better. First, everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. Second, the rooms have been substantially upgraded in the last year or so, and I can’t tell you how comfortable they are… The warm, wood-paneled restaurant with a huge fireplace is great, and the bar at one end is a perfect place to meet up with friends or colleagues. Finally, the location can’t be beaten.”

Cozy Place in a Charming Town

“It might just be because every time I go to Colgate, I get to see my daughter who is studying there, but I do love this hotel! The rooms are very well appointed, and the beds are super comfy. The restaurant is a good spot for a nice dinner, and the servers are excellent. Convenient parking and great location.”
– Sarah M.

Home Away from Home

“Always a wonderful stay. The staff is so friendly. We stayed in a suite this time, which had plenty of room for ourselves and our teenage son. The restaurant is also very accommodating. Our older son is a freshman at Colgate and we brought a cake up for his birthday. They made his birthday dinner special.”
– Kathy T.

The Best Hotel in Town

“Lovely remodeled historic inn. It was originally called the Park House (my great-great-grandfather managed from 1872 to 1881). Lovely rooms, great service, and the food was especially good. We had their cheese platter made with local products two nights in a row. Excellent wine selection, too!”

Amazing Stay

“We recently attended a wedding reception at this property, and from the time of check in until check out, our stay was amazing! Our room was immaculate and so comfortable. The food at the reception was delicious! Kendra and her team should be commended on their hard work and dedication to this property. I cannot wait to stay again!”
