I had the privilege of staying at the Portobello Inn while in town for work. Roland was gracious & accommodating and the Inn itself is gorgeous. Cozy, comfortable - felt like going to a family member's home. Highly recommend staying - such a treat!

Eleven of us descended on Roland at Portobello Inn. He is a charming host and an excellent cook. His B&B is clean, comfortable, well-appointed in every way. The beds were cushy, the coffee upstairs to have in the nook was a terrific plus. The history of this mansion is very interesting, his parlor and the art everywhere was appreciated by... More

This large welcoming home is enhanced by it's inn keeper and the talent for the warm welcome and good food. It sits on the hill with green trees, and can be viewed from the Erie Canal boat tour. We biked to this location from the Erie Canal and Roland easily handled the 11 of us arriving and settling into our... More

An Italianate mansion halfway between Herkimer and Little Falls, New York, turned into a charming bed and breakfast inn. Proprietor Roland is gracious, friendly, helpful, and solicitous. His collection of knickknacks and the beautifully preserved interior, including magnificent walnut panelling and woodwork make this B&B a gem. Roland organizes breakfast with everyone around a large table, appropriately expanded or shrunk... More

If travelling through NY state this B&B is right mid everywhere, and for the price a great find and a great way to break up ones trip. We found them on Purple Roofs, and the hosts were wonderful, the breakfast stunning, and the antiques within one could spend hours looking at - some are even for sale! Our room was... More

My son and I stopped here on our way to Cooperstown. Very convenient from highway 90. Roland and Steve were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions. The oriental decor in the Arlington room was fun. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. Good breakfast. A hairdryer in the room would have been nice. Good value and a nice... More

How nice to find a Bed and Breakfast in Herkimer, a town with few options. Our room was elegant, with gorgeous window treatments. Roland is the most delightful innkeeper, so pleasant and so interesting. We were in the area on business, and he was kind enough to make a delicious early breakfast both days. Muffins, quiche, a sauce of fresh... More

We stayed here summer of 2012 for a family wedding in a nearby town. The owners have done a lovely job restoring a beautiful 1850s Italianate mansion. Furnishings are sparse in some of the public rooms, but the guest rooms are well-outfitted, lovely, comfortable, clean and well maintained. The breakfast is outstanding, and not just because our gracious host Roland... More
