Great B&B in Herkimer, near the mining, antiques, Glimmerglass and Cooperstown. The hostess was wonderful, and made breakfasts to order. Nice big rooms and bath/jacuzzi, and added hot tub and sauna in the house! One of the nicest I have been to, and I have been to many!

It was a delightful place to stay, and we especially valued the breakfast-time chats with the hosts and other guests. Very nice. Highly recommended.

Bellinger Rose B&B

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.

Lovely bed-and-breakfast

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.

The Bounty of the Bellinger Rose

The Bellinger Rose sets a perfect Victorian atmosphere. Romantic, comfortable, and clean!!! The hosts are charming and attentive. Breakfast is delicious with many choices on the menu all prepared to order. There is something fabulous about having fresh fruit served in a beautiful cut glass bowl! An easy drive to Cooperstown. Close to the Mohawk rIver where there is a delightful cruise of the Erie Canal! This is my second stay at The Bellinger Rose...and I cannot wait to return!!!

Lovely bed-and-breakfast

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

Victorian Delight

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.

Wonderful stay and Fabulous hosts

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
