“Romance, Hospitality, Delicious Breakfast, and the Most Wonderful Collection of Teas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

My boyfriend and I received a gift card from family to BedandBreakfast.com, and we were started searching for places in Vermont since we wanted to go snowboarding. As we were searching we decided that Inn Victoria was the place for us and after staying there we HAVE to say that they have far exceeded our expectations. Right from the beginning, we felt like we were visiting old friends. The entire inn was gorgeous, clean, well kept, and warm. The room we stayed in (Princess Helena) was aboslutely beautiful. The pictures were beautiful so we were so excited but after staying...the pictures do NOT do justice. The room is 100X more beautiful and comfortable. I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud on the two nights we stayed there. The room was romantic since it had an antique type bathtub right near the fireplace, a shower with two seats/two showerheads, and a private hot tub on the deck. Each morning we woke up to an amazing breakfast. Lemon curd bread, blueberry pancakes, and strawberry applesauce were just a few of the tasty things on the menu. Their menu of teas was one of my favorite parts of my stay. I love many different kinds of tea, and I had such a wide variety of new kinds to try! Penny, Dan, and Jessica were such nice people I actually felt sad when we had to leave! At least we know the next time we make our way to Vermont we have an exquisite place to stay and friends to catch up with.

If you are going to Vermont, definitely check this place out! Tell them Danielle and Bryan sent you! You will not be disappointed!

We were only there for one night before our daughter's State ski race the next day in Grafton, but felt like part of the family. Dan, Penny, and Jessica (who is an absolute gem) really know how to to do a B&B right. The rooms are immaculate, welcoming, and spacious (at least the Prince Albert room was). A really spectacular breakfast greeted us in the morning (after a wonderful soak in the private hot tub). And we left with a hug from Jessica and Penny. This is truly a special place that we will return to. We also had a wonderful dinner at the Grafton Inn the night before.

By far the best B&B I have been to. I literally left broken hearted, as I did not want to leave the B&B, the innkeepers or VT. Penny, Dan & Jessica are truly some of the nicest people you will encounter during your stay in VT. You have no choice but to stay at the Inn Victoria, as it truly is a top-notch establishment.

We booked the Princess Beatrice room because we were on a budget. The room was very cute and cozy with a half a wall separating it from the bathroom. It was an adjustment at first to be so open with my husband, but hey, we are in it for the long run, and we made it through just fine. The bed was probably the MOST comfortable bed I have ever slept in my entire life. The feather pillow topper and amazingly fluffy pillows and 1,500 thread count sheets will make waking up in the morning one of the most difficult things you will have to do while on vacation, but the breakfast makes up for it. Wonderful food, will keep you full well past lunch. And if you are there on a Fri-Sun, you will be full until High Tea Time, which you MUST attend to! Penny makes you feel like a queen!

Our first evening in Chester, Dan the "ambassador" gave us an awesome recommendation list on a map, giving us the highlights we'd want to check out whilst in the area.

We originally booked 2 nights there, but after our first day, we wanted to extend our stay and spoke with Penny about it. She was happy to do that (as the room was free) and when we checked out, she only charged us 50% the room rate! That just about made me tear up. When we left, we told them we'd be back and received genuine hugs from all three. We will definitely return and recommend that you all do too.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Princess Beatrice room which is cozy and will test your couples ability to use the...

We just returned from a weekend trip with another couple at Inn Victoria. Penny, Dan, and Jessica were the most welcoming hosts and stopped at nothing to make everybody happy. From booking our last minute massages, to cooking us a delicious dinner, and offering wonderful suggestions for activities in and around Chester. The rooms were quaint and comfortable and the Inn was all very well maintained. However, it was absolutely the hospitality that made this place something special.

We visited this inn in October for fall foliage. What a lovely inn! Breakfasts were wonderful and so were the hosts. Had a fabulous time. Would love to stay there again.

After going to the Inn Victoria for a few years in a row to ski, it quickly became one of our favorite vacation spots. The Inn is so warm and inviting. Everything from the friendly hosts to the delicious food is perfect! We have always stayed in the Princess Victoria room and enjoyed every minute of it. It was always neat and clean, spacious and absolutely luxurious. The bathtub and fireplace was always something to look forward to after a day of skiing.
Naturally, we chose the Inn as the location for our wedding reception. Our family and friends stayed at the Inn for a long weekend while we were all completely spoiled by Penny, Dan and Jessica. Not only are they amazing hosts but blew us away with their wedding planning skills. Everything was so special, done exactly the way we like and Penny's cooking was outstanding! Being able to relax at my own wedding was very important to me and was a day I will never forget!
I would highly recommend the Inn Victoria as a place to go to ski, relax or to hold you next small event. Thank you Penny and Dan, we look forward to seeing you soon! - Rob and Taylor

WOW....thank you! That was a FUN day! We've had many more intimate weddings and receptions since. The inside of the Alice Closet is full of notes from wedding and engaged couples! Your note remains prominant!

Let me begin this review by stating that I have never been a big fan of Inn's. I always felt I was a stranger in a friend of a friend's home with hosts that were awkwardly friendly and rooms that seemed like they were lived in by someone else.

At Inn Victoria the hosts are wonderful. Welcoming without being overbearing or invasive. They seem to know just what you need before you do.

I stayed at this inn for one night and it was the most comfortable nights sleep I've had in ages. When you come in the front door you are welcomed by a dozen pairs of winter shoes-as there is no shoes inside the inn during the winter months-and a welcoming sitting room on your left. Straight ahead is a double dining room and a staircase to your right. Our room was at the top of the staircase on the right hand side. The Princess Alice room was indeed fit for a princess. A King bed, fireplace, gigantic bathroom with tub and shower. It was everything you could need for a relaxing evening.

There is a wine selection downstairs to choose from just simply replace the bottle with a similar grade wine. Baked goods available around the clock for snacking and a wonderful creative homemade breakfast. As wonderful as all of this sounds the best part about this place is-THE SHEETS! They are the most delicious material I have ever felt in my life!

This inn is a destination in itself. A pub a few doors down, an organic sandwich shop next door and Okemo a mountain a short drive away. A must stay if you are looking for an authentic New England experience.
