When my wife and I decided to move from southern Ontario, Canada across the country to Colorado, we had a hard time finding a hotel/motel that would accommodate a car with our open trailer, a cat, and a dog. Bedandbreakfast.com led us to Victoria's Vineyard and after speaking with Victoria we knew we were making the right decision. The house is absolutely beautiful and seriously spotless, the bed was dreamy comfy, and there is even a hot tub to relax in and watch the stars. A beautiful morning walk around the property leads to a picturesque lake and the hand made breakfast by Victoria seriously may be the best breakfast I've had in 34 years. Our dog and cat even loved the garage and back deck and they are really hard to please! It's really hard to believe this is in the middle of Indiana. If we are ever in Indiana again I can guarantee we will be visiting here again. Thank you so much Victoria and Steve, this was truly a one of a kind experience!

We stayed at Victoria's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The house is a beautiful 2 bedroom home with a nice hot tub and plenty of nice sitting areas. The house is very clean and well maintained. Our friends stayed in the other bedroom and we had a nice evening using the hot tub and even had a fire by the pond. Victoria is an excellent cook and our meals were great. It was such a good time we are planning on doing it very year.

We stayed for two nights at this lovely B&B about 10 miles away from downtown Des Moines. There are only two rooms, and the other room was unoccupied during our visit, so we had the house to ourselves. We stayed in the upper floor bedroom (slightly more expensive) and found it very comfortable. Kitchen, living room, and bathrooms were all very nice, and the hot tub on the back patio was delightful. In addition to the vineyards, the property has its own forest (planted by the owners a few decades ago), with a path leading through it from the house to a nice, secluded pond with gazebo and picnic area. Victoria and Steve were wonderful hosts. We had several hours of very enjoyable conversation with them, and Victoria cooked delicious Spanish breakfasts for us, and even packed the leftovers for us so we could have a picnic for the road. We have stayed at many B&B's over the years, and this one is among the very best we have experienced.

My husband and I spent two nights in the downstairs bedroom. We were in the Des Moines area to attend the State Fair. Our room was nice and comfortable. The breakfasts were filling and delicious. The B & B was very nice and the property was incredible.

What a luxurious surprise! We decided to get away for a few days and chose to stay at Victoria's Vineyard B&B. We were thoroughly impressed with everything at this B&B! Having been to several, this is definitely in the top ratings. The accommadations were incredible, very upscale. The room, bed, and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. There was an outdoor jacuzzi that we used which was very nice. Also, we really enjoyed walking on the farm. The gazebo, pond, and fields were wonderful and relaxing. Steve was an excellent host! Victoria prepared the most delicious organic, farm-grown breakfasts! We did not want to leave. We would highly recommend this B&B and plan to go back in the future.

We came to Iowa for a weekend of Indy racing and we decided to stay at Victoria's Bed and Breakfast. It was awesome! The food and hospitality was amazing. We will definitely stay there again. We were sad we were unable to meet Victoria and hope her recovery is going well. It was a pleasure to meet and visit with Sarah. What a lovely young lady. Thanks so much for making our stay great.

Our experience at Victoria's Vineyard was phenomenal. The location, the amenities, the food, and the people were all top notch; but our hostess, sweet Sarah, deserves the most praise for her culinary skills and engaging conversations. Thanks for a great time!

Victoria and Steve were so accomodating! And walking to their beautiful pond was an experience we would not have wanted to miss! We plan on returning and spending more time relaxing in the gazebo and swimming in the pond.

My wife and I visited this wonderful place for our 1 year wedding anniversary. Victoria was a great host, and gladly welcomed us even with my short reservation notice. The place is great, beautiful atmosphere for the perfect romantic getaway-while still being a hop and skip from Altoona. Our breakfast was delicious and learned alot of history about the vineyard and fertility of the land from Mrs. Victoria. Don't forget to ask about the headless warrior! Thanks for having us and look forward to going back.

My husband and I stayed there for a night just to get out of town, and it was more than we bargained for. The owners are fantastic people who take great pride in their place. The place was beautiful, and the food was awesome.
The more spacious of the two bedrooms, with a huge pillow top bed and large windows giving a view to the north. In the closet you will find plush bath robes, and in the bathroom you can enjoy our jacuzzi bath tub.
Slightly smaller but equally elegant, this room also features a pillow top bed, large windows, and an attached bathroom.
