“A Herkimer diamond that is real!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Needed to pick up son from a weekend retreat in Salisbury . From long island , and needed a place to stay for return trip. I searched the sites for EVERY 5 star hotel or b&b around!! Pics of 5 stars made we wince! Portobello was the nicest, so called and spoke to Roland . I must share I am a snob when it comes to accommodations . Although Herkimer for me was passable , this beautiful richly restored inn surpassed my expectations. From the moment you are greeted by Roland you realize how passionate he is to assure your comfort. The rooms were so restful and beautiful, and waking to a table elegantly set for breakfast was brilliant!! Our breakfast was 5 stars, as well as our encounter with this #1 b&b in Herkimer !!

After our fourth visit here, we have come to realize that this is a house to be lived in. Two very comfortable seating areas with plenty of interesting reading material are begging you to spend some time and soak in the atmosphere. Perfect home base for day trips but don't overdo it-spend some time at "home".

Returning again since our stay last summer, the Inn is a great find in the Glimmeglass/Cooperstown area....clean, comfortable accommodations, best breakfast around and a truly considerate and thoughtful host in Roland!

I love old historic houses--- and staying in them when they have been restored and cared for, is a treat. Roland met us at the door and took care of every wonderful detail for our whole stay, including yummy cookies, and very serious double chocolate brownies. We were up for the opera with cousins of ours, all seniors, and we were incredibly comfortable and well provided for during our stay. The rooms are nicely decorated and the baths are spacious. There is a coffee machine going all day, and the full breakfast is fantastic. My gluten free cousin was beautifully taken care of. All in all, it was a lovely experience and we will go back next season,
