Staying at a Victorian Bed and Breakfast

 What fun to head back in time to the Victorian Era with none of the associated drudgery and all of the luxuries one could desire!  That's the delight of staying at a Victorian Bed and Breakfast.


We are gathering some of the finest and most beautiful Victorian Bed and Breakfasts in the United States and Canada to tempt you to take that much-needed break, and to treat yourself to elegance, good food, and perhaps a bit of stained glass and velvet.


Our disclaimer is that we have not stayed at all of these inns, so research their websites and choose what suits you best.  We welcome feedback from your stays!

 

Most Victorian B & B's are found in actual Victorian Era houses, many refurbished with attention to historic detail.  You'll find lovely period furnishings in some, but also plenty of 21st century comfort.  There is usually an assortment of rooms, each with its own special theme or color.  You'll find that some bathrooms have actual clawfoot tubs, while others have been upgraded to showers and even whirlpools.


Breakfast is, of course, the main event, often with several courses and possibly even a dessert!  Some inns cater to those attending surrounding events and will pack a breakfast, snack or lunch accordingly.  While dinner is not usually served, some Victorian Bed and Breakfasts serve high tea in the Victorian fashion!  If they do, don't pass it up, as it's a real treat.  Most inns will have several places that they can suggest to you for your evening meal and will have drinks and some snacks available for your stay.It's common for Victorian Bed and Breakfasts to have lovely grounds and gardens that have been well kept for your enjoyment.  From rose gardens to gazebos, patios to pathways, you're sure to find some peaceful places to commune with nature.  There are also often old style porches with comfortable chairs for sipping a glass of wine or a cup of tea or coffee.  And if waves are your thing, choose one of several Victorian B&B's near lakes, rivers and oceans.  


If you're looking for a place to go with your children, pay close attention to the description, as many Victorian B&B's are structured for adults who desire peace and quiet, and much as we adore those little ones...


​Happy Exploring!

Choosing a Victorian Bed and Breakfast

  

You'll find Victorian Bed and Breakfasts in pretty much every state of the US and in Canada as well!  Some are in rural areas, some are right on a city street!  Historic areas are popular places for Victorian B & B's.  


Victorian Bed and Breakfasts can be open year round, or as in the case of some coastal areas, closed during the winter months.  Listed above are just a few of your lovely options for enjoying a Victorian Bed and Breakfast!  When choosing a Victorian Bed and Breakfast there are many things to consider.  What sort of occasion (if any) you are celebrating, the size of your group, what you will be doing during your stay, whether or not you have children with you, and how social you feel like being are just a few of the factors which will influence your choice.


At many bed and breakfasts you will be breakfasting around a common table with other guests.  If you are low on social energy, find a bed and breakfast where you'll be seated by yourselves or where you can dine in the room.  You'll also find that many innkeepers are happy to chat with you, so let them know if you need a little less interaction.  They've heard it before and won't take it personally.  If you are excited about meeting new people and making new friends, choose a bed and breakfast where there is common seating and breakfast is served at one time.


A Victorian Bed and Breakfast is a home.  The innkeepers most likely live there.  As with all houses, some are larger than others.  Some have only two rooms for guests, others have nine.  Do your research so that you have enough space to reserve for your group.


Many Victorian Bed and Breakfasts are filled with lovely furniture and accents that are not child proof.  Don't be surprised if children under a certain age are not allowed.  There are more casual bed and breakfasts and certainly hotels, that might be a better choice if you have little ones traveling with you.


​Historic areas often have bed and breakfasts.  If you are a history buff, be sure to check for Victorian Bed and Breakfasts close to museums and historic sites of interest.  You'll have fun while you learn and a wonderful breakfast to fuel your day trip.


If you just wanted to get away from your everyday life, but didn't have anything special in mind, don't worry.  Your innkeeper will have lots of suggestions and often brochures for things to do and see in the area.
