The hostess was very helpful assisting us with our belongs upon our arrival. The home is simply beautiful and our room was magnificent. Ms. B is fun and really entertained my wife and I with some great local history. Breakfast was superb with fresh Amish pastry as an added treat. We had a great stay and highly recommend the Victorian Country Inn B&B.
If you need to take a trip back in time and take a break from the crazy world around us Hotel Frederick is the place to go. Relaxing, great service, food very good and the staff over the top helpful.....Frederick is the kind of place you go and hate to leave......we will be back and planning our next trip now..... Great location to stay and then explore the other historic areas around Boonville...
The check in was easy and inviting. We recieved cards to acknowledge it was our 35 wedding ann. The morning breakfast was Wow! we didn't have room to eat the pastries. The hot chocolate was really good. The outdoors was beautiful. It was fun to see chickens in the morning for us country folk. We had a nice time talking to everyone.
This was the first time my husband and I stayed at a bed and breakfast. It was amazing. We stayed in the cozy cabin. I would definitely recommend the Victorian Country Inn. Barb and her husband are awesome!
I recently stayed here for business and left setting up my next months reservation without hesitation. I only gave 3 stars on food because I didn't get to eat but if the breakfast matches the coffee and snacks it will be a 5 as well. Couldn't ask for friendlier hosts. Country setting super quite good WiFi for my reports at night. Just a comfortable place to stay. That has personal touch to it instead of another hotel room.
In a small Midwestern Missouri town, tucked away on back roads only known to long time inhabitants sits a quiet Victorian house bursting with charm and delight. Feel free to park up close to the house, for Barb, Ray, and Duke are looking forward to greeting you at the door. Before you get settled in, let Barb take you on a tour of your accommodations, and witness an outpouring of imagination and wonder from a woman who has squeezed her every drop of heart and soul into turning back the clock to decades past as you step into a room where ever detail has a significance, and a story. Secret passages and mystery abound in every nook and cranny, but that won't detract from your evenings of warmth, comfort, and serenity as you sleep nestled in the bosom of the beautiful Missouri countryside. Need a romantic dinner for two? Thinking of a murder mystery night? Have your own ideas of romance? Barb is an utterly hopeless romantic waiting to help you fill in the blanks to treat that special person in your life to an evening they'll revel about for years to come. Breakfast can be a fancy dining setting, or a family-style sit-n-chat. Either way, the incredible food is only half the experience, as Barb, Ray, and of course, Duke, are patiently and eagerly waiting for you to come and remember what home feels like.
We had a very nice weekend stay at this B&B. The room was lovely, clean, comfortable and quiet. Barbara and Ray were wonderful hosts. They welcomed us with warm home baked cookies and the breakfast was delicious both days! I highly recommend this place and it is only 15 minutes from Mizzou campus.
Great service, room, food, etc... Only suggestion for improvement - Need a place to put clothes both in drawers and hanging in the Starlite room. We will definitely be back and also recommend to our friends !
My wife and I stayed at the inn on 9/20/2013. While we usually stay at our timeshare when we travel, we decided to go somewhere locally to unwind. This place was perfect. Barb and Ray are exceptional hosts. Their home is very comfy, and our room was exquisite ( the Garden Spa room) - clean, well decorated with a very good bed. We had dinner as well at breakfast and both meals were exceptional - both in taste and presentation. Our stay was very restful and pleasing. We will be back!
For just being 15 minutes from Columbia, MO and I-70, their location makes you feel like you are the furthest from civilization as you can get. That was just what I was hoping for when I booked the B&B. The breakfast was wonderful it gave us a chance to try something that we had never had before. A very nice couple own this B&B, but I think that their cute little dog is more in charge. The owners were very hospitable. The room had a wonderful view to the east. The bed was very comfortable. Our room, the Dan & Diva, was their newest room. We had the luxury of a private bath. There is a small pond in the front of the house that has some very large catfish. A little chicken coop with chickens of course. A nice gazebo with a couple of rocking chairs. All in all, I would say that we had a wonderful time. Close enough to town, yet far enough away for peace and quiet.
We enjoyed a friendly atmosphere, luxurious room, considerate and creative meals, wonderful stories about history and a special tour by Barb. Our local friends were welcomed and we entertained.
Awesome breakfast, teas. The Spencer's are the kindest and most accommodating couple we have stayed with in our B and B career. The walk past the chickens and goats in the Back 40 with Harley the Westie was great as was the nearby country restaurant Heuers. Also enjoyed the Mizzou campus and art gallery 12 miles away.
The food was great. Make sure you say hello to their dog, Harley, who does tricks for treats. The room was large and spacious. And I got to see the stars at night because you're far enough from the town's lights. Wonderful place.
My husband and I travelled to Hallsville, MO to attend a 50th wedding anniversary celebration. We were delighted with the Victorian Country Inn information and called to talk about reservations. We explained that our visit was a surprise, and asked for discretion to ensure the party did not know we were invited. Our hosts kept our secret and the surprise went off without a hitch. The next evening the B&B allowed us to use the private room to have a second party with the family and provided an awesome tour of the B&B's secret -- we had to sign in "blood" that we wouldn't reveal the secret. Every day's meals featured something local - from home grown eggs to products from the nearby Amish country - and we were treated to great cuisine. We definitely recommend this B&B to anyone as a great place to stay! PS. We enjoyed our 3rd host, Harley the Westie, who always welcomed us when he was in the area.
We had a wonderful time staying at the Victorian Country Inn. We stayed in the room with the secret passageway to the vintage theater, and really loved all the attention to detail! They have lovely antiques, each with a story and something to tell. Barb and Ray were very generous and hospitable, and we had some great conversations! We had so much in common, and really hope that we'll be able to make it back soon for another visit (a longer stay next time, hopefully, so we can look for more critters and enjoy one of the other rooms as well!!). Ray was kind enough to take us on an improvised Turtle Safari and show us around the land so we could look for turtles and other wildlife! We really enjoyed it, and appreciated our time there. Thank you so much!!!!!!
We decided for our anniversary that we wanted to do something special but not go very far away from our kids (we have an infant). Barb was so wonderful, are original check in time was 6pm., well with our small children we figure out very quickly we weren’t going to be making it. When we finally got to Victorian Country Inn, Barb was so wonderful and she didn’t mind one bit that we were later than our predicted time. She showed us our room, and the unique features it had to offer. She then asked us what time we might be down for breakfast and then she left us enjoy the rest of our evening. Breakfast was great and the property was really nice to go walk around then we were done with breakfast. I would love to come back and enjoy another room that she has to offer.
