This beautiful Victorian B&B in Herkimer, NY is worth checking into. The exterior is in the process of being scraped for repainting, but don't let that put you off. You will find Roland and Steve, the inn keepers, to be the most gracious and entertaining hosts. Roland cooked us wonderful breakfasts (fresh fruit, home-made muffins, eggs, french toast, zucchini quiche, and more..) The rooms were clean and decorated with many of the antiques collected by the owners over the years and their many travels. There's a grand piano to be played and coffee and home-made cookies to enjoy in the evening. The only draw-back was a train which ran across the road from the B&B, but after one evening, we hardly noticed its passing. We enjoyed Roland's humor and Steve's stories and information. Don't pass this one up!!
