Such a wonderful place to stay. The hospitality is top notch. They went above and beyond as we had a special circumstance. The breakfast was so good. I wish I could have breakfast like that every day. I would highly recommend you stay here if you are in the Fairfield area.

Property's Favorite Review
My wife and I stayed at The Victorian on Main on two successive nights last month (August 31 and September 1). Our stay at the Victorian was a highlight of our trip and will stand as memorable among our positive travel experiences. One of several stately late 19th, early 20th century residences in Fairfield, 209 W. Main is being painstakingly restored and thoughtfully complemented with high quality contemporary accoutrements. Guests need not be collectors or history buffs to appreciate the quality and charm that surround one in every corner of every room: beautifully bound books and a pedal organ in the parlor, chandeliers and sconces, the magnificent table, chairs, and sideboards in the main dining room. Nothing strikes one as veneered or artificially preserved. A career lit teacher, I relished the three Delft style portrait plates gracing one wall in our chamber: Robert Burns on one side, Charles Dickens circled by memorable characters from his novels on the other, and, of course, William Shakespeare centered and hovering over both. Tasteful and authentic as the furnishings are, what will stand out in our minds even more are the culinary skills and personal graciousness of the chef and hostess, Ms. Kathleen Taylor. The "breakfasts" in this unique establishment are simply amazing: varied, of gourmet quality yet healthful, everything from the homemade pancake syrup to the deliciously hearty fruit salad, to the scrambled eggs and tofu (for my wife who can eat no meat) was memorable. Finally, Fairfield is nestled in a lovely rural area that should be better known. It is an easy drive from historically important New Harmony, Indiana to the east (home of two 19th century perfectionist communities) and the lovely foothills of the Ozarks to the south. If I remember correctly William Least Heat Moon in his fine travel narrative, BLUE HIGHWAYS, records a visit to Albion, IL, ten or fifteen miles toward New Harmony, and Abraham Lincoln once spent a night in nearby Carmi.

Where do I begin as I can not say enough good things about The Victorian On Main!! 💞 My granddaughter Carly and I, known as Nana, spent 4 days and 3 nights recently at this lovely, romantic, Victorian house which is really a welcoming home with such amazing unique character and love shown by Innkeeper Kathy and the owners. We stayed in the beautiful cozy “Lily’s Hideaway” and slept quite comfortably and enjoyed a full bathroom right off the bedroom. We enjoyed great WI-FI and TV reception, nicely cooled air conditioning, spacious shower with great water pressure. Our bedroom was quiet and had two small windows that let in just the right amount of early morning sunlight. We both anxiously awaited Kathy’s home made delicious breakfasts which included fresh squeezed orange juice and/or assortment of squeezed fruits, banana nut bread, pistachio cookie nuggets, omelettes filled with ricotta cheese and mushrooms, warm spinach breakfast casserole with squash, Greek yogurt and various fresh fruits and granola, and many other delightful home cooked items. Kathy is a very experienced exceptional cook and she thoroughly loves making her specialties and sharing them with her guests and it shows. We definitely plan to return once all the construction is finished. Thank You Kathy, Amy, and Scott for The Victorian on Main! 💞
