I was thrilled to find this B&B on my way back home! The Squirrel’s Nest is without a doubt the best room in the house. It is comfortable and comforting. The Christmas tree was absolutely beautiful! The breakfast was perfect and care was taken to ensure my vegetarian needs were met. I had everything I could possibly need and the innkeepers were beyond wonderful. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay longer.
Our entire two night, two day stay was extraordinary. Kathy, the Innkeeper, was such a joy to get to know. She served up breakfast each morning with such attention to detail. And her cooking was worth the overnight stay just for the breakfast! Husbands, if you want to impress your wife, book a weekend at The Victorian! The place is filled with antiques, art and living spaces worth exploring. We came to Fairfield on an exploratory genealogy assignment. Lodging at The Victorian on Main took us back to a much simpler time. A time we envisioned how our ancestors may have lived. The truth is, The Victorian on Main, built in 1895, was a mansion compared to the homes of our early agrarian ancestors who lived in Ellery, Illinois just 20 miles away. We felt like honored guest in the home of a close family member.…
The house is beautifully redone. The owners are very nice and accommodating of any special needs you might have. Our room was on the third floor, small and nicely redone. We had a private bathroom with very nice shower. Also television in the room with cable. Breakfast was fabulous, fruit, waffles with homemade syrup and eggs with bacon and bleu cheese. Very tasty. Of course coffee and juice. Would definitely stay there again.
My husband and I attended their afternoon tea and tour...twice! It was so much fun! The people were so welcoming, energetic, knowledgeable, and friendly. The food was amazing and the house is gorgeous. After the tea, we checked into the turret room. This is by far the cleanest room I have ever stayed in. It is beautifully decorated and has a cozy comfortable bed. We were able to have drinks on the patio and an amazing breakfast. We left full, relaxed, and happy. There are also restaurants and stores within walking distance. I do wish there were mini refrigerators in the room, but definitely not a deal breaker. We will for sure be back.
Picture a charming bed and breakfast and you’ll have The Vic. Everyone was very friendly and the breakfast was delightful. One note, it’s on the main drag in Fairfield, so if you don’t like car noise bring ear plugs or the white noise tactic of your choice.
Excellent service, comfortable room, delicious food. I look forward to staying again when I have the chance and need to get relax for a while. I enjoyed talking with the hostess and other guests over breakfast.
Excellent location, right in town. Within walking distance or a short drive to many restaurants. The house is beautifully decorated with many antiques. The Christmas decorations were very nice. The breakfast was delicious, Several options to choose from. The room was very clean and nicely furnished. The staff is very friendly.
What a gem we found in the Victorian on Main! My dad and I stayed in the Felix room which has two double beds. This room is located on the second floor near the back of the house and has a jack-and-jill bathroom with the Creighton suite. During our stay the door was bolted shut so that we had complete privacy in this bathroom. Our entire stay was peaceful and wonderfully managed. Upon arriving they offered to carry up our luggage to help us get settled. Each morning we awoke to a home cooked meal and they even managed to make adjustments to accommodate my keto diet. I enjoyed my mornings out on the front porch drinking coffee and catching up on news. I also cannot stress enough how clean and safe the bed and breakfast was. I was never in doubt of the cleanliness and upkeep they have provided to keep me safe. I would highly recommend visiting. Lastly I would just like to say that each staff member was gracious and kind. I cannot thank them enough for welcoming us to stay with them.…
We stayed in the Garden Suite & loved the space. The suite was very clean & full of natural light. The king sized bed was so comfortable & our favorite thing was the private balcony overlooking the gardens. Kathy is a very gracious, welcoming hostess. We will definitely return!
The Vicorian was our first bed and breakfast experience and we will differently return. Our room included its own second story porch Which took me back to my grandmother's frint porch afternoons. The innkeeper Kathy was wonderful and the breakfast was delicious. Their own house made sausage was excellent.
