“Great location . Lovely house. Nice outdoors”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is located on a canal off the waterfront within walking distance to downtown and restaurants. Great front and back porch with an additional sitting area in the water. Nicely furnished and clean. Interesting antiques and great history. Laid back. I liked that breakfast was tailored to our schedule. We had a. Window of time where we could eat when we wanted. Coffee available early. The upstairs rooms were dark with only one window so we really had no view of the water. Maybe it was a bad day for Aida. She was nice but not very attentive or engaging. Mostly left to sort things out on our own.

Room Tip: One downstairs room overlooks water with a private deck. Upstairs rooms only have one window. Anot...

Overall, my wife and I were a bit disappointed but not totally displeased with this B&B...

The good news... the porch and it's view of the harbour is a delightful place to meet up with other guests in the evening for conversation. The house is well decorated - I was fascinated with the Victorian couch in the hallway. The hostess - Aida - went out of her way to welcome and provide for us. The place is well located for an easy 2 block walk to the main throughfare for shopping or eating.

Our biggest problem was the bed, which was lumpy and saggy and made for uncomfortable sleeping. There were also a couple of problems in the bathroom, where a shortage of shelf space had us putting the shaving kit on the floor. In addition, both the towel rack and the toilet roll holder were threatening to come out of the wall. I had a problem with the shower/bath, which was very narrow and did not give me much confidence when I was turning in it that I wouldn't fall out.

My wife was not very pleased with the breakfast as, while it was made to order, did not offer much variety. I did not have a problem with that at all.

Overall, the place, both inside and outside, had a little shabbiness about it but still presented itself as a once grand Victorian house.

Great location to all attractions, we walked to the piers, did a ride on Selina II , if staying as for the room with the deck view, it rocked and was renamed King Trout Room. Owner was gracious and staff tentative and does a great job keeping the place quiet. Would return again.

Room Tip: Corner suite has a private deck.

We had a great time at the inn – the amenities were good, there were always wine, cookies and drinks available, and Aida was very warm and welcoming. The location is the best in town! The only two minor negative comments: our room was done in 5 minutes max each morning, so it was not well cleaned and some outside parts of the inn need repair. For instance, the back door, the porch, etc. The Inn has an impressive DVD collection and a DVD player in each room :)

The Victoriana Inn is in a perfect location. Far enough away from the main road so you don't hear the traffic but close enough to all the Main Street shops and attractions. The innkeeper Aida is delightful and made our stay very relaxed and comfortable. We would highly recommend staying at the Victorianna and hope to visit again. Just steps from the Maritime museum and the Patriot tour boat. We enjoyed both attractions.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sharp on the first floor. Bathroom was tiny but adequate for weekend away. Furnis...

My girlfriend whisked me away on a long weekend trip. I had no idea where we were going but I'm so glad she picked Aida's Victoriana Inn as our destination. The inn has a picturesque setting. It's location is so convenient to getting around the town of St. Michaels. Almost everything is within walking distance of the inn.

Aida, the innkeeper, is a terrific hostess! Her breakfast along with the top notch accommodations made for an such an enjoyable weekend!

I HIGHLY recommend Aida's Victoriana Inn for anyone who would like to spend a nice time in a relaxing, peaceful setting.

PS This is the first time I have written a review on Tripadvisor. That's how much I enjoyed Aida's!

What a great place to stay while in St. Michaels. We stayed in the Miles River Suite which was a peaceful, large room with a 4 poster bed, love seat, gas fireplace, and large T.V. We had a private deck and entrance which made the stay more relaxing. Aida was wonderful, providing delicious, made to order breakfasts and well as hosting a get together for all the guests Friday evening. The Victorian home was comfortable with porches in front and back and a large yard that fronted the marina. We could listen to music from a restaurant down the road while sitting on Adirondack chairs near the water in the evening, enjoying the birds and watching the boats coming and going in the marina. The location was perfect with easy walking to local restaurants and shopping..
