Roland, innkeeper at Portobello Inn, describes it as a work in progress, and that description is supported by the 'in preparation for painting' state of the exterior. It is clear that the place is also a labor of love, with wonderful decorative details and fascinating appointments gathered by somebody who really likes to collect and display interesting things.

This beautiful Victorian B&B in Herkimer, NY is worth checking into. The exterior is in the process of being scraped for repainting, but don't let that put you off. You will find Roland and Steve, the inn keepers, to be the most gracious and entertaining hosts. Roland cooked us wonderful breakfasts (fresh fruit, home-made muffins, eggs, french toast, zucchini quiche,... More

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend of our 22nd wedding anniversary. We were greeted by Roland at the car when we arrived. We arrived very late in the evening and he was very accommodating by meeting us so late. You never once got the impression that this man was dealing with a ton of emotion in his... More

Roland and Steve are absolutely wonderful, friendly people. Roland is such a wonderful innkeeper. Roland greets you at the car. Roland and Steve make you feel like you are extended family. I stayed in the Arlington Room on two separate occasions. I love the room. It is decorated nicely and it is a cozy room. Very clean. The whole home... More

Passing through on a recent trip through Central New York I had the pleasure of spending the night at Portobello. They say you should never judge a book by its cover and this is certainly the case here. The outside is a bit worn but I was committed and traveling alone so I thought, what could be the worst case?... More

We enjoyed four wonderful days in the Herkimer area while staying at the inn. Roland greeted us at our car, offered to help with luggage and addressed us by our first names. He had already prepared the room and cooled it for our comfort. Roland and Steve are terrific hosts. The rooms are always immaculate, the food is fabulous and... More

Our family group stayed at the Portobello Inn for a family reunion. The innkeeper, Roland, accommodated us at short notice after another local B and B let us down. We were very happy we ended up at the Portobello. Roland was a kind and generous host, and an excellent chef - our breakfasts were wonderful. Our rooms were comfortable and... More
