Gorgeous house with so much charm! Comfy bed, great water pressure, spotlessly clean and delicious breakfast! So many nice thoughtful little touches from coffee in your room to earplugs on the dresser. Absolutely loved our stay. Everyone there was friendly and helpful. Can’t recommend the Welch Irish House enough.

Hospitality and great service by the host filled the room with warmth. Judy's hygiene practice is impressive: the bedrooms are clean and tidy, and several dining rooms can accommodate guests staying at different rooms. The house is beautifully decorated, and it makes us feel like we are at home. A commercial hotel can not be compared with this sweet B&B.

Our family simply loved this beautiful and charming B&B and Judy, the lovely host, made or stay just magical. She is lovely and welcoming and our breakfast was beyond delicious. Our room was lovely and the B&B is clean and comfortable. We do not like motels and this was everything we imagined it to be. Hamilton and Clinton are so charming so we wanted a charming B&B and that is exactly what we got. Judy is a Clinton native so she can tell you all of the places you need to visit. We highly recommend the Antique & Irish Welch House.

I visit a few colleges in this area each year and I use Welch House as my home base. Judy feels more like my sister (she also lives in the home she grew up in, she loves horses, etc). The rooms are gorgeous, breakfast is delicious and it's close enough to the high street to walk. Judy has spoiled me for her locally made yogurt and granola. I now pack a cooler so I can bring some home with me.

My husband and I were visiting Hamilton College for a weekend in January. The minute we walked in we felt like we were at home. The house is very spacious, beautiful and full of character. Our room was on the main floor, formerly a study. Very comfortable and well appointed. A big bonus was all the cookbooks! I did not want to leave. All the rooms have an electric fireplace which was especially welcome. Judy is an amazing hostess! Very accommodating. We had some lovely chats during our short visit. Breakfast was wonderful! The location is excellent, very near the college and downtown. Can't say enough about Antique & Irish Welch House. Highly recommend it to anyone visiting Clinton or the area!

We were visiting Colgate and Hamilton (the schools) and found this gem. It's walking distance to Hamilton College and to town, but more importantly it's run by a genuinely lovely lady who treated us like real house guests. Other B&Bs we've stay at are strict and particular, bordering on petty. Judy encouraged us to feel at home, so we did. The physical structure is beautiful and almost exactly what you'd expect to see if you looked "B&B" up in the dictionary. The room was spacious and clean, but also well-appointed and pretty. Highlights included: memory foam beds, ceiling fans, an in-room fridge, a lovely breakfast and a warm feeling. Terrific. Thanks Judy.

The Welch house is a great alternative to a traditional hotel. The rooms are cozy and well appointed. There are electric blankets on the beds and fireplaces in each room. Judy is the best. She makes wonderful breakfasts in the morning. The sticky rolls alone are worth the stay.

The darling sweet hostess was just the right amount of friendly and the place is a late Victorian gem. If you want modernist and "regular", this is not your place. This is a cute B and B with character, comfortable beds and pillows, and an abundance of small, thoughtful gestures such as coffee machines and fridges in rooms.

Close to Hamilton College (in Clinton) and Colgate University (in Hamilton) as well as the Finger Lakes, the Antique and Irish Welch House is a very comfy home away from home for parents of local college students and prospective students' and their families' visits. Judy is as warm and inviting a host as you can find. The many repeat visitors (and we are many) are made to feel like family from the first breakfast. We met many other parents coincidentally, who's "kids" have become good friends of ours. For big college events (Homecoming, Graduation, major sporting and speaker events) reserve early!
