Local Accommodations: Far Away:
Cazenovia is an old resort town on a lake in one of the prettiest parts of the state. Only half an hour from Colgate, it offers two enticing inn choices: Brewster Inn (Rte. 20; 315-655-9232) is a restored old mansion built in the late 19th century in the style of an English manor house. Beautifully situated with a view of Cazenovia Lake, it has inexpensive to very expensive rates (continental breakfast included), and boasts a good restaurant too. Brae Loch Inn, (5 Albany St. Rte. 20; 315-655-3431), is a family-run Scottish inn with great charm. It's in town across from the lake. Rooms, including continental breakfast, range from moderate to expensive, and it too has a fine restaurant on the premises. See the Hamilton College entry for information on the Horned Dorset, which is not too far to the east of Colgate.
