My daughter and I just spent Saturday night at the WVB&B, and can't say enough about it. The B&B is lovely. Theresa, the Innkeeper, was waiting for us on arrival, and her warmth and friendliness sets the tone for the B&B. The room (Georgiana Suite) was beautifully appointed - super comfy bed and pillows, great bathroom. The B&B is just... More

I recently got an invitation to a reception by this Inn. When I responded about my experience a few years ago, the NEW owner contacted me to explain that they had seen my very upsetting interaction with the former owners. Karl (the new owner) was very nice, explaining how policies have changed, and even invited me to come and try... More

My husband and I visit the Wallingford Victorian B&B. It was a first time staying at a B&B. We had such a great visit. The room was quaint, beautiful and comfortable. There were restaurants in walking distance and we enjoyed the walk. Breakfast was delicious and we had great conversation with the innkeepers, Brenda and Jeff. Highly recommend this B&B.... More

Charming B&B in a nice town (Wallingford CT). Walking distance to everything. They also have great extended stay accommodations for longer-term stays, including a 2-bedromm duplex apartment!

I booked this room months in advance. A few weeks before my arrival date, however, my son broke his leg and needed extensive surgery and was bedridden, causing us to cancel our trip. I called to cancel the room and was told that since it was a "special weekend" (with a six month cancellation policy!!?)that their cancellation policy required me... More

My wife and I just returned from a two night getaway at the Wallingford Victorian. Overall we had a wonderful experience and I would recommend it. The Wallingford Victorian is well located on a residential street within walking distance of the center of town. It is also a great jumping off point to explore the many wineries and farms that...

Spent 3 days at the Victorian celebrating a birthday and anniversary. It was suggested that we go to a Bed and Breakfast for a non-hotel experience. I was so happy that I found the Wallingford Victorian. It was only a 1.5 hour drive from NYC, the house is beautiful and the innkeepers, Becky and Dave, made us feel welcome as... More

Nice Victorian (Queen Anne, I think) place on a quiet street. Easy to get to. Hosts are pleasant 'down homey' folks. Good for couples or singles, might be problematic for families, but maybe not. Nice decor, comfortable bed. Good stay. If you are in to B&B's and abhor national hotel chains, I recommend you try out.

My boyfriend and I were looking to get away from the city for a weekend and spend a nice quiet weekend together. The Wallingford B&B was the perfect choice. We arrived on Friday night and were greeted by Becky who welcomed us with a big smile. Our room was very charming, yet still large and comfortable. It was clean, the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Wallingford Victorian Inn regally presides over the corners of North Main Street and Curtis Avenue in Wallingford, CT. Once the site of a quaint cottage sheltered by trellises and grape arbors, in 1890 the property was purchased and the cottage razed to make way for a Grand Queen Anne Victorian. Designed by the firm of Allen and Tyler Architectural Associates of New Haven, it was constructed by the C.F. Wooding Company of Wallingford, a name that to this day connotes excellence in craftsmanship, constructed at a time when execution of detail and ornamentation was a hand crafted trade. The Victorian is comprised of one dramatic hallmark of the period after another; complex patterned masonry chimneys; finials capping hipped slate roofs; multi patterned textures of shingles and clapboard; intricate relief work (grapes that reflect its humble origins), and small latticed porches, just to name a few. According to local historians, originally it was a wedding gift to Georgianna Simpson Hull and Charles Tibbits from her parents Gurdon W. Hull and Elizabeth Simpson Hull, whose father founded Simpson, Hall & Miller Company, a prominent silver manufacturer which later became International Silver. The family is steeped in Wallingford history and they were true philanthropists. No expense or detail was spared in the construction of this handcrafted home. Over the past century and a quarter the Victorian has watched over the town of Wallingford as it grew and more buildings sprung up. The dirt roads became asphalt, and horse and carriage gave way to motor vehicles. Fashions and trends flicked by in the blink of an eye. Still it stood, rising on its corner, an enduring landmark in the cycle of change. It has prospered in good times, and endured the hard times. It has changed hands and purpose, yet still stands proud. Come, step back in time with us, when work, rest and recreation ebbed and flowed with the rhythms of nature. Enjoy this remarkable property surrounded by period furnishings. Stay over and enjoy one of our five suites with exquisite attention to detail. In the morning awake to a gourmet breakfast made just for you by our chef innkeeper. Come, enjoy all this in a turn-of-the-century, handcrafted Victorian mansion, The Wallingford Victorian Inn. ... more   less
