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 !!
