Portobello Inn BedRoom One 

Enjoy a Gracious Bed and Breakfast Experience in an 1840s Italianate Inn, once a Mohawk Valley "Farm Baron's" home. We have five comfortable bedrooms, each with private bathrooms, robes, A/C & ceiling fans, cable TV with HBO, CD radio alarms and internet access. Our bedrooms are furnished with sturdy period antique furniture, comfortable seating and writing desks for your convenience. All of our mattresses were specially made for the Inn by Therapedic of Syracuse, NY to ensure your comfort and a restful night's sleep.

Snuggle up to one of our Italian marble fireplaces with your favorite book or magazine. In season, relax on one of our porches. Sit in one of our many Adirondack chairs which dot the grounds and at the same time enjoy our panoramic views, reminiscent of the Tuscan Hills of Italy. We are also about 500 yards from the Mohawk River and historic Erie Canal.

Start each day in our French Door dining room with a hearty Portobello Inn breakfast. In Summer our doors open for "al fresco" dining on the Victorian Veranda. In late Fall and Winter, enjoy breakfast by the warmth of a cozy fire in the dining room fireplace. Enjoy fresh ground and brewed coffee, specialty teas, local honey and jellies, seasonal fruits and fresh baked goodies. During the week, we provide an expanded Continental menu and on weekends, full "Country" breakfasts are offered.

In Spring, Summer and Fall, as part of your stay at Portobello Inn, enjoy the Mohawk Valley Country Club, which is only 500 yards east of the Inn. Play a round of golf on the Club’s picturesque course, enjoy Tennis or swim in the club’s pool.

Portobello Inn is easily accessible from the New York State Thruway; Exit 29A (Little Falls) or Exit 30 (Herkimer). We are convenient to many Central New York area attractions and historic sites and are also close to the Adirondack Mountains to our north and Cooperstown, only 25 country miles to our south.
