Steve and Judi are just such welcoming and warm hosts to those of us traveling. It is a delight to be with them. Judi always has a special dessert for when we arrive, and follows up with a huge homemade country breakfast in the morning. Her bread/toast is THE best with homemade jams! Steve fills us in on the what's going on in that local farming area. They are blessed to have good Amish folks as friends. Either bedroom is very comfortable with crisp cotton sheets! So good to sleep in! We are very thankful for the Mihals opening their farmhouse to weary travelers!
We have stayed at Heritage Meadows Farm B&B numerous times. Steve and Judi have become 'family' to us. Their hospitality is the best! Judi always has a special dessert waiting for her guests. That plus the conversation around the table makes it very welcoming and special. We get a good night's rest, and no rush for breakfast. The breakfast is a full country meal, again with special conversations around the table. We are so thankful that Steve and Judi have opened their home to travelers!
This is a wonderful treat in the country. I had the deepest rest I've had in a very long time. The food was out of this world special. The owners use as much for their meals as they can from their own property. The jams, peaches and bread were all homemade. I enjoyed sitting down and having breakfast with the owners. That was a different experience for us and I loved it. Even though they have 2 rooms available, they will not rent out the other room to someone else unless it is booked that way (Ex: family & friends) So, you do NOT have to share a bathroom. Finding the place can be challenging since a regular GPS can not find the address. Use google maps when you get closer as the best resource. It will take you right to it.
A visit is what it felt like staying with Judi and Steve. All I can say is we weren't there long enough. Maybe we'll see you both again in July around Iron Man Lake Placid time. Very clean, decorated like Country Living Magazine and the food was scrumptious.
We came to the Herkimer area for a historical event and so enjoyed our stay at the Portobello Inn for five nights. Roland is the most wonderful chef! Delicious breakfasts every morning and more food that we could possibly eat. The room was kept clean during our stay. I would heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Mohawk Valley region.
The rooms at the Bellinger Rose B&B were beautiful and clean. The hosts could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Jerry the cat was also very friendly. I have many food allergies but it was not a problem for them to make a special breakfast for me. The food was delicious.
I have to start off with the home cooking! Wow! Judi is the hostess with the mostest....homemade everything. We started our visit with homemade cherry pie..delicious and the smell of homemade bread for breakfast the next day! Our first breakfast was like no other. The freshness of the eggs, sausage, fruit, jelly..I could go on and on. Definitely reminded me of the days visiting my aunt upstate. Brings you back in time when things were done right. Home is beautiful and clean. The farm is beautiful! Judith and Steve are great hosts. Very comfortable and feels like home. I can't end this without mentioning the homemade blueberry pancakes! Amazing! I had to have two! Thanks for taking care of my mom and I. We had a great stay.
We stayed here one night because it is conveniently located off the highway, the owners were very helpful with things to do, places to eat, and places to walk nearby. House is very clean, the beds were very comfortable. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
This is a lovely bed-and-breakfast right off route I 90. It feels more like a wellness spa than a bed-and-breakfast with a hot tub, far infrared sauna, easy walk to town, and lovely gardens and yard. Bed was comfortable, and the host we are most gracious with ideas for dinner, things to do, walking, and general information and history of the area. I would definitely stay here again and my travels take me through for Chris herkimer, New York
This inn was a feast - for the soul with the peaceful, luxurious room, for the eyes with the décor and antiques throughout the rooms, and for the palate with the wonderfully prepared and served breakfast. Thank you Roland. You made a memory!
Our stay was like going back to the days of Victorian Elegance with a beautifully set breakfast table with antique china and glassware accompanied by calming piano music and a delightful conversation with the Inn Keeper Chris. Our room was very clean and very comfortable with all the amenities one could need.
Stayed two nights - lovely property, beautifully furnished with great attention to detail. Comfortable beds, clean rooms. Roland took great care in providing a wonderful breakfast that I could eat, as I have food allergies. Delicious - and the care is priceless! Thank you and I will be back again!
My partner and I were attending the wedding of one of our best friends and we decided to treat ourselves and make it a weekend getaway. We're both so happy that we did! The B&B is wonderful, cozy, and charming. Roland was a spectacular host, making sure that we had everything we needed and were well taken care of. Our breakfast on both days was delicious, our room was spacious and clean, and the bed was very comfy. I could keep gushing over this place, we both highly recommend it. We're looking forward to going back in the fall/winter for another little getaway!
The Portobello Inn has all you expect from a first-rate bed and breakfast and more: a historic house furnished tastefully with interesting antiques, a comfortable bed for a great night's sleep, the gracious but unobtrusive hospitality of thoughtful and experienced innkeepers in Roland and Steve topped off by a delicious breakfast. By the way, did I mention the incredible breakfast?
If you are looking for country look no farther. Heritage Meadows Farm B&B exudes country. The air is fresh. The scenery is picturesque and Judi and Steve will make you feel right at home from the moment you walk through the door. The breakfasts are to die for, yummy pancakes with homemade jams, Amish peaches and more.... You can take a nice long leisurely walk around the acres and acres of farmland and enjoy nice long car rides without a trace of traffic in sight. Luscious desserts await you when returning back the the Farm each night. Judi knocks herself out to make your stay a pleasant one, and we promise you, you won't be disappointed! Long Island Couple
Lovely 1800s inn located just outside city limits of Herkemer. Decorated with antique Italian furniture. Our room was lovely, roomy, with a gas fireplace to take the chill of the day off. The train rumbles by several times a day. We would return.
2nd time spending the weekend away from the kids and getting spoiled with breakfasts, massages, hot tub and sauna, All the amenities you could ask for and then some.Why go to a hotel when this is so much better and affordable. Private, romantic and relaxing. Hope to get back later this year. Thank you Chris and Leon. Mike and Anne Drenkalo
Great Job by the hosts. Roland was available when we knocked on the door. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Breakfast was both plentiful and freshly prepared, with a large variety of choices. The only thing I would note was that the electric fireplace in the room made a slight grinding noise - not even really an issue as we turned it off when we went to bed.
I arrived after dark, so could not see the lovely bones of this old home, but the even older home still standing from the early 1800's stands right next to this one, and its beautiful logs and old clapboards create an aura that can't be matched by many B&B's. The breakfast was incredibly tasty: crisp bacon, a piping hot cheese souffle, fresh muffins, fresh fruit and four juices. The owners are extremely hospitable and welcoming, making a stay as homey and comfortable as my own mom's. I will return again and again.
I would definitely recommend Heritage Meadows Farm B&B. My husband and I stayed there for my cousin's wedding and could not have picked a better place.The room was cozy, the whole house was decorated with lots of antiques, Judy was very attentive and a great cook, and she and Stephen were great company at mealtimes. And their pets were adorable! We had a great time. Regarding Judy being attentive, when I mentioned that I had forgot to pack cotton pads to remove my makeup I later found a new pack sitting for me on the bathroom counter. My husband commented that it was like staying at your grandma's house. If you're looking for a quaint old farmhouse to stay in where a sweet older couple will feed you homemade bread and preserves made from fruit right from their garden, this is the place.
When traveling back east, we always make our plans to include Heritage Meadows Farm as a stopping place. Stephen and Judi are very gracious and welcoming! They want your visit to their farm home to be like home for their guests. Judi serves a dessert in the evening, and a breakfast with fresh and homemade selections. We thank them ever so much for their hospitality. This is indeed a very special bed and breakfast home!
