“Unexpected Pearl”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

My wife and I have been driving by Lodi on Interstate 94 for 20 years going to Wisconsin Badger football games. We decided to extend our weekend by staying at the Victorian Dreams B&B. Fabulous. Cindy and John are great hosts and the place is beautiful. The house itself is wonderfully decorated and the rooms have great charms. I highly recommend it for a weekend get away. Thank you Cindy and John!

We stayed for 2 nights (8/17 and 8/18) while visiting family who have a cottage on Lake Wisconsin. John and Cindy were friendly gracious hosts. We enjoyed chatting with them over breakfast and wine & cheese hour. Breakfast? Everything I'd hope for at a B&B - wonderful! While there, we enjoyed (to the last bite) homemade coffee cake muffins, baked eggs benedict, cheesy hashbrowns, fruit & yogurt parfaits and blueberry pannekoeken (Dutch style pancakes). I went to Lodi to see family, but I'd return for a weekend away again & again now that such lovely accommodations are available.

Room Tip: If you don't mind a room with only a bathtub en suite (there is a shared bathroom with shower ju...

We have gone to many B&B's over the years. This one was exceptional. The Innkeepers truly made our stay a great one. John and Cindy were very helpful with their recommendations for places to eat at and sights to see. We enjoyed visiting with them during wine and cheese time each evening on the front wrap around porch. They also visited with us for breakfast on a morning when we were the only ones there, and we thoroughly enjoyed that as well. We stayed in the adjoining house next to the main house, but I believe either house would be fantastic for your stay. The downtown is only two or three minutes walk from the house and contains a great ice cream shop. Be sure to visit the Three Bats in the Belfry shop as well. John provided us with written instructions on how to get to various sites in the area. They suggested a car ferry across Lake Wisconsin one day which we took and throughly enjoyed that short experience. The rooms have everything you need in them to make your stay enjoyable. I loved the Keurig coffee maker in the room, as well as a refrigerator and microwave. Breakfasts were scrumptious and seasonal local fruit was a bonus! The neighborhood was very quiet while we were there. John said a nearby train blows its whistle during the night but we slept so well in the room's bed that we never heard it:-) We were there two nights and plan to return in a different season of the year to view the rolling hills of WI and chat again with John and Cindy, two of the nicest innkeepers we have ever met. They truly love what they do and it shows!

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

I sat on the front porch, reading and enjoying the gardens. Then, I went into the lobby where there were refreshments available and a reading room with a piano for guest use. The home is beautifully restored with comfortable rooms and updated bathrooms. Our bedroom even had a jacuzzi tub and Keurig coffee maker. In the morning we joined with other guests in the dining room for a full and satisfying breakfast which accommodated gluten free requirements as well as regular diets. The hosts were welcoming and kind. I would stay there again.

Our experience with Victorian Dreams and the Innkeepers (John & Cindy) was exceptional. They made our experience so wonderful beginning with the reservation process and lasting until we drove away with complete satisfaction and the desire to make this our annual anniversary destination. The cleanliness, the superb condition of our unit and the entire facility, all the amenities they offer, the wonderful breakfast we were served and most importantly the way they treat their guests to make it such a memorable experience. We have absolutely nothing but good things to report and highly recommend Victorian Dreams to anyone wishing for that best stay possible. If you think this is a great review my wife's review would be even better as she was blown away with absolutely everything.

The innkeepers help to make fun and relaxation a reality. They pamper you from the moment of your arrival (actually before cause they ask if you need anything special or if there are any FOOD ALLERGIES or special requests). Beautiful accommodations, special comforts of home with courtesy snacks, bottled water and specialty coffee or tea selections. Breakfast was a great surprise and our compliments to Chef John with his wonderful partner Cindy. This couple allow to relax but treat you like "ONE OF THE FAMILY"! Both Betty & I have told many of our friends, family and acquaintances about this lovely venue.
Lodi is a sleepy wonderful town a hop, skip and jump from Madison and has many attractions and places of beauty to offer any family, group or single. Thank you again to Cindy & John!

Whether you are here to experience all the area has to offer, or to just spend time with family, friends or that someone special we are here to indulge you. Lodi is nestled in the valley and surrounded by beautiful bluffs and farmland. With curvy roads, it is a motorcyclist's dream ride. Being motorcyclists ourselves, we'll not only tell you where the best roads are, we'll let you store your bike in our garage during your stay. Stroll through the downtown area filled with quaint shops and grab an ice cream cone made from UW - Babcock ice cream. Stop in to our Butcher shop and pick up some State Fair award winning bacon. Before you head back to the inn, see where Spring Creek flows under the main street, while visiting Suzie the Duck's nest. Not only is Lodi conveniently located halfway between Madison and Wisconsin Dells but it is also close to many attractions. Why not take a short ride across the (free) Merrimac car ferry to Devil's Lake State Park? This state park is a must see in the fall! For those who like to hike, Parfrey's Glen (part of Devil's Lake State Park) is another beautiful place to explore with it's lush foliage, mountain type stream and 100' sandstone embedded walls. Wine lovers? Check out the Wollersheim Winery a short, scenic 12 mile drive from the B & B. With International award winning wines, beautifully landscaped grounds, free wine samplings and a tour, Wollersheim is a must see. You can even buy a glass or bottle of their wine and sit on their outdoor patio to enjoy it. ... more   less
