We stayed there while on our second honeymoon (40th anniversary) and chose the Mamie Eisenhower Honeymoon Suite. This inn is fabulous. The rooms are well appointed and the common areas are beautifully done. Our room was very spacious with a great sitting area and lovely ensuite. Our hosts, Adrian & Jay were delightful and Adrian's breakfasts are events unto themselves. Incredible food, prepared and presented with a master touch. The parking is great and the location is perfect. There is no question that we will be back
I surprised my husband with a get away for our anniversary. When we checked in, the owner was friendly and even yelled “surprise!” I have A LOT of food allergies. When we went to breakfast, she had made me a delicious breakfast that was completely different than the rest of the table. Everyone else said their breakfast was good too, but I was beyond thankful that I had a delicious breakfast that was well thought out and all my own. Usually I’m just given a variation of what everyone else has. Not here.
We went to Abilene for Thanksgiving. We stayed 3 nights in the Hazlett room at the Abilene's Victorian Inn. Adrian and Jay were wonderful hosts. Every evening there were delicious fresh cookies and hot chocolate, tea, popcorn, and soda. The breakfasts were amazing, you didn't go hungry. I especially enjoyed sitting in the parlor with the Christmas tree and soft Christmas music playing. I definitely would recommend and would happily stay there again!
I stayed at this Inn the night before visiting the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. This Inn is definitely in the perfect location as far as proximity to the Museum goes - it's just down the street. Perfect! The Inn prefers that you check in during a certain time period so they can ensure they're there to greet you. I had a meeting that resulted in a late arrival on my part, so I called ahead to let them know when I would be arriving and they accommodated easily and kindly. When you arrive, you park at the back of the residence, but you enter at the front of the residence. Those with mobility issues should take note and plan ahead for that. Along that same line, this property does not appear to be wheelchair accessible. All of the rooms I saw were upstairs and the entrance required several stairs to access the porch. However, I may have just not seen other options - calling ahead to ask may be best to make sure. I was greeted by Adrian, who checked me in and showed me around. She was very attentive about what I could/would eat for breakfast the next morning, which implies a lot of experience on her part and being conscientious about not wasting food. I definitely appreciated that. I stayed in the Hurd Room, which was perfect for my needs. I was there in October and the room had a small space heater provided for use, which I was very very grateful for. I know that I'm more sensitive than most to cooler temperatures, so while most people would probably have been fine, I appreciated being able to make the room fit my preferences on my own. There is a large array of movies that you can borrow to watch, most of which are older and along classic lines which is nice to take a step back and enjoy. There were also cookies and tea available through the evening. I've seen other reviews and noted myself that some bathroom areas can be quite small. However, I saw that as a result of converting Victorian spaces into modern lodging areas. Areas were simply smaller in that era than we're used to now and keeping the integrity of the space has the natural result of cozier accommodations. I personally didn't mind any of it, but I can see how others might. The bed was comfortable, but be aware that this is a typical Kansas town that was built around a railroad station. So trains still run through there very frequently and at all hours of the night. If that will disturb your sleep, plan accordingly. I honestly don't think you can stay anywhere near the museum without that aspect. Breakfast the next morning started with a yogurt, fruit, and granola parfait. Adrian makes the granola herself on site. The entree for that morning was French toast with a fruit reduction and bacon. It was very nice. Overall, it was a very nice stay in a historic home with prices very comparable to any local hotel.…
What a fun stay! This victorian home converted in to a B&B is so comfortable and makes you feel that you are visiting with family. The rooms were very clean, and the breakfasts that we enjoyed were exceptional!
