The Victorian Lady Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 3 Norwalk B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 17, 2012

My husband and I bought a Living Social deal for the Victorian Lady and spent Father's Day weekend in the Graham Suite. The room was beautiful with lace-edged sheets, high quality linens, a gorgeous fireplace and luxurious window treatments. In addition to lovely bedding, the room had a round window seat, a wingback chair and a plush settee. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub as well as soft, comfortable sparkling white towels and a basket of toiletries. Upstairs there was additional seating in the hallway outside the bedroom, a small refrigerator with water and soda, and a selection of DVD's for in-room use. Our room also had a window air conditioner which allowed us to make the room comfortable (It was 90 degrees outside!).
On the main floor there was a beautifully appointed common area for guests with books on local history and a piano. Outside there were two seating areas on the large front porch, one with wicker rockers and the other with a porch swing (great place for morning coffee). The landscaping was very lush and suited the style of the house. The only downside for us was the set-up for breakfast. When we've stayed at B&B's in the past, they've always offered cold cereals, milk and fruit---none of which was offered here. When we came into the dining room, there was a small serving of yogurt at each place setting in a footed dish, a pitcher of juice and a two carafes, one of coffee and one of hot water for tea. The owner then brought out a plate for each person with one biscuit on it with a slice of quiche (which my husband doesn't eat!). We were just a little disappointed that there wasn't a better selection.
As far as location, we enjoyed checking out the neighborhood which had numerous Georgian and Queen Anne style homes. Norwalk has a beautiful stretch of historic homes and a very interesting downtown with several antique shops, Berry's, an old restaurant with tin ceilings and Dinky's, an open-air bar/restaurant which had live music on both Friday and Saturday nights (guessing this is seasonal!). The downtown is approximately a 15 minute walk from the Victorian Lady.
There are many things to do within a short distance of Norwalk: a trip to the Lake Erie Islands via Jet Express or Miller's Ferry; antiquing (Milan and Wellington are both nice); wine trail (D&D Winery, 401 W. Main is a small, local winery with live music; Firelands Winery in Sandusky has a great selection and very reasonable prices; Paper Moon in Vermilion; Mon Ami in Port Clinton as well as several others. Although my husband and I aren't racing fans, Norwalk Racetrack is just outside of town. There are so many attractions in the area that we may just have to go back!

Room Tip: The Graham Suite is spacious and the comfiest bed ever!

My fiance and I went away for our 5-year anniversary to enjoy some downtime. We had purchased a two-night stay through Living Social. We stayed in the Victorian Garden Room -- mostly because it was large and because I liked the blue/gold coloring. We got exactly what we wanted! The room was beautifully decorated and luxuriously appointed -- with some modern "spoilings," such as a jacuzzi tub, wi-fi, and private shower.

Our room was quiet (although the bed creaked quite a bit with simple movements), the bed was very comfortable to sleep in, and overall it was a wonderful stay. The hosts were gracious and accommodating, and appeared to really love what they do. It definitely shows! The breakfasts were varied and appropriately hot or cold, all set out on an ornately decorated dining table.

The weather was rainy, so we didn't get to enjoy the ambiance of the downtown area, but just being in our room relaxing was fine by us.

This is defnitely a great place to stay if you want to get away from the craziness of your everyday life. Just give Paul and Vickie a call at 419-660-9860, and they'll set you up for a relaxing getaway!

We bought a Living Social deal for this B&B. The house is beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Victorian Garden Suite with a two person jacuzzi. Definetly a comfortable and relaxing stay. Breakfast was good. Hopefully, we can make a return visit soon.

This was our second stay at The Victorian Lady B&B. The house itself is beautiful and the woodwork incredible. The Rutherford B Hayes house and museum is about 45 minutes away and is definitely worth the drive. Once we completed our tour we drove to the Fireland's Winery in Sandusky (about 35 minutes) - they have something to suit everyone's taste and the prices just can't be beat. Once we finished our winetasting we returned to The Victorian Lady (about 30 mins), and, after a day of sightseeing we were very happy to relax in the double jacuzzi tub with a glass of wine.

Vickie had a special going (not sure if they run this all the time or not) but we were able to purchase a gift certificate at a greatly reduced price at the time of checkout. We're already looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: The Victorian Garden Suite has a wonderful double jacuzzi.

We bought a Living Social deal and used it at Victorian Lady B&B for a well-needed getaway- only an hour from Cleveland. We had the best 2 nights of rest there, followed by delicious breakfast each morning. The owners/caretaker were very accommodating for a diet restriction with each of the meals planned.

Room Tip: We were in the Biltmore Suite- enough room for 2 with a clawfoot tub in private bathroom!

We bought a Living Social deal and stayed here for our anniversary. We loved the house and our room - everything was decorated so beautifully! The house was very quiet even though it was full that weekend. We stayed in March and there really isn't much to do around Norwalk in the Winter (early Spring), especially when there's snow on the ground. The house was very inviting and we spent much of the weekend just relaxing and enjoying the fireplaces in the house.

The breakfasts were very good. They didn't have Splenda for the coffee. (Bring your own if you like Splenda.) We didn't see hardly anyone who worked at the B&B, which was fine, but when we wanted a recommendation on what to do in the area we weren't sure who to ask.

The only complaint we had was that we had no water the first night we were there. I was looking forward to getting in the tub but never got a chance to. I let the water run for about 10-15 minutes and gave up; it never got warm. Found out at breakfast the next morning that another couple ran out of water halfway through filling their tub. We never found out what happened, but had hot water that morning for showers.

We stayed for 2 nights at The Victorian Lady and had the best time! We traveled with 2 other couples on our annual B&B weekend getaway. On the way over, we spent a couple hours in Milan at the Melon Festival and walking the city - what a quaint town and such beautiful homes to see! We had dinner at Berry's downtown Norwalk and were not disappointed. Breakfast both mornings was delicious - fresh fruit cup, fresh juice, and a hot meal. We had dinner at the inn one night, too, which was very good.

The location is perfect for a day trip to the islands. We drove through Marblehead and then caught the ferry to Kelly's Island, taking our bikes. We had a wonderful time - biking around the island was easy. There is also a bike path within a mile of the B&B that runs alongside the RR track. It was beautiful to ride through.

All bedrooms were on the second floor and the flight of steps weren't too bad. The B&B had several common rooms on the first floor which were tastefully decorated. We were able to play cards in one of the rooms in the evening - the hosts were very accommodating to our needs. We also enjoyed sitting on the front porch and talking. The grounds are beautiful - lots of flowers. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again!

Room Tip: The Graham Suite was delightful - spacious, good view of the street, large bathroom with jacuzzi.
