Experience the historical Clinton Inn! Gateway to the Irish Hills
The historical Clinton Inn welcomes you. Since it’s opening in 1901, the Clinton Inn has offered delicious food options and unique and comfortable lodging in a quaint and charming setting. We offer great food, drinks, and cocktails in our restaurant, premium and delicious coffee in the Clinton Coffeehouse, overnight lodging in our boutique hotel, and private events and catering.
The Huffaker Family purchased The Clinton Inn in June 2019. It’s an old historic building that’s unique, charming, very quirky, and some of the locals tell us it’s haunted. We currently have four (4) rooms available for nightly stays. All rooms are on the second floor and have their own private bathrooms. Since our purchase, we have replaced the beds, mattresses, pillows, sheets, towels, and other linens with new items. The beds feature hotel grade King and/or Queen sized mattresses and are super comfortable. Room 1 has been given a full facelift, and we’re updating furniture, fixtures, and decor throughout the entire hotel as an ongoing project. A larger remodel to open up more rooms is currently being planned.

About The Clinton Inn
Early settlers came to Clinton From New York state and named the village after their state governor, Dewitt Clinton. The site of the Clinton Inn was first settled by Alpheius Kies, who built a log house. After several changes in ownership, Alonzo Clark built the present 3-story brick hotel. It officially opened on Thanksgiving Day in 1901.
The hotel has three stories; the first floor features the full service restaurant, the Clinton Coffeehouse, and coffee lounge. The second floor is all guest rooms while the third has served as apartments since the 1980’s.
The hotel was purchased by the Huffaker Family in May 2019. The hotel was in a state of disrepair at the time of purchase, and numerous improvements have been made. Currently 4 rooms are available for nightly rentals, and larger renovations are planned to bring the hotel back to it’s glory days.
