Victorian Bay Resort
Ranked #3 of 6 Monticello B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We are all looking forward to another great family reunion! Our family comes from all over and we all agree on Victorian Bay. Robyn and Ziggy have always made our families welcome. The cottages we stay in are clean and bright. We enjoy different things from campfires to Indiana Beach. We have the best time there, very family friendly.

Room Tip: Make sure to bring your things these are cottages. Call Robyn she will let you know all you need. En...

What words can I use to describe Victorian Bay Resort and Robyn & Ziggy the owners? Fun,friendly,great value, stupendous, wonderful, repeat visits warranted and on and on! We have been going several years and actually go twice now, Memorial Day & Labor Day weekends. We have so much fun we actually start the countdown when we leave for the days until we come back! We are always made to feel like part of the family..Robyn even makes her homemade pizza on our joint cookouts..yummy!! Ziggy & Robyn have taken us out for rides on their pontoon boat, even taking us out to view the nightly fireworks! Victorian Bay has the largest lakefront of all the resorts in the area. This is great for docking your boat, fishing and riding the FREE rowboats and paddleboats. Nice area for the family to swim, and Robyn & Ziggy make sure this is done safely. An added bonus for the family is walking across the street to the amusement park. No parking worries, just a short walk away! I also love the history of Victorian Bay Resorts. Robyn has a picture in each cabin what it looked like in the old days and it is refreshing to see the preservation of the resort. And last but certainly not least, the mascot of the resort is Dude. He is everyones four legged friend during their stay. (And he has been known to bury handouts!) Wow...writing this has made me ready to go back NOW!!

Room Tip: We love the upstairs large unit! It is very roomy for the price. The living room feels like "ho...

The location and outside of the property are really great, but that's all this place has going for it. It is right across the street from IN Beach and their waterfront is really nice on Lake Shafer. We stayed in one of the large cottages and were disgusted at how dirty and outdated the place is. It's desperately in need of renovation!! It rained and water leaked in a window all night long near one of the beds. The mattresses and bed coverings are all old and disgusting! Furniture - ick! We covered with sheets of our own for sanitary reasons. No ventilation in the one bathroom so it has mold issues and the toilet leaks. Kitchen appliances are old and don't work to the fullest (i.e. oven only heats to about 300, frig doesn't get really cold). Wifi went in & out. Heard the female owner telling another in the parking lot she got so drunk she lost her keys and had to get into her house by removing the window a/c unit. So, not impressed there either. We won't be staying here again, that's for sure.

Robyn and Ziggy are such nice people! "Dude" is the greatest! What a nice boy. We love our stay at Victorian Bay. The property is lovely and like always we are very satisfied with the service. See you again and again and again for as long as you will have us!

The Owners Robin & Ziggy Are Truly Amazing People.... Down To Earth & Super Friendly... Our House (Fisherman Cottage) Was Clean, And Overlooked Lake Shafer... There Is A Ton Of Things To do From, Paddle Boating, Row Boats, (Which R All Free) The Only Extra Would Be The Pontoon Boat.. But At $100.00 For The Day Who Could Complain.. It's like $150.00 For 3 hours Across The Lake, At Lake Shafer Marina.... And 1 Thing We Loved.. The Enterance To Indiana Beach Is Like 500 Feet Away.... They Have Places To Tie Up Your Own Boat For Free... We Are Coming back This September (2012) For A 4 Day Stay Once Again.... Robin & Ziggy Truly Want Your Visit To Be All You Want It To Be... And More...... Thank You Both For A Amazing Stay... Our Kid Will Not Forget How Much Fun They Had ... Our Twins Said To Tell Dude The Doggie Hi... (: ..... See You Soon... The Rileys

I know this was our 4th or 5th year there. We go up to Monticello at least 2 if not more times a year and stay. We have managed to make new friends in Ziggy and Robyn that they are like family. Oh I almost forgot "Dude", he is always there to greet us when we arrive and loves to come in and visit with us. I get my doggy fix for the weekend. The cabins are so comfortable, cozy, clean....what more can I say. There is so much room to play cornhole in the back, fish, swim, or just sit and relax in one of the many chairs. Our kids can just walk back and forth to the beach when they want. You can not even hear the rides going on! I strongly suggest that if you want a place to stay that is affordable and like being at home, I suggest you stay here!!

Room Tip: We love the basement in the house

Just spent another relaxing and fun vacation at Victorian Bay Resort. The owners, Ziggy and Robyn, are FABULOUS hosts. There is plenty seating with a great view of the bay, very clean cottages (cooking items, cable tv, air conditioning included!), charcoal grills, paddle boats, a fire pit and life preservers in the boat house. Top that off with a short walk to Indiana Beach Resort and there is plenty of fun for the family. Oh, and I have to mention DUDE!!!! He's got a great personality and friendly....gave us our doggie fix for the week.

We've booked again for next year. Can't wait!!!
