First B&B Stay and it wont be the last

My partner and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Victorian Rose Garden. Not only did we feel welcomed but the French style was plush yet felt like home.

Special overnight Stay

I took my granddaughter for an overnight fo her birthday. She kept telling me she felt like a princess. We were both treated like we were princesses! The table was set so elegant, the hostess was always making sure we had everything we needed, and the breakfast and baked goods were marvelous. I highly recommend going, especially if you need some TLC!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you Sue. We love having royalty stay at Victorian Rose Garden! We'd love to see you both for Riley's 8th birthday.

Wonderful Place to Stay.

This was our third time visiting and it continues to be one of our favorite places to stay when we visit the area. We will be back.

Innkeeper Response

Home away from home.

Excellent location. Great breakfast. Warm welcome by owners. Clean, spacious room, with good shower. Superb period piece decor. Had a warm, wonderful experience. Our 2nd stay. We will have more in the future.

Two of the friendliest inn-keepers made us feel welcome and at home in our five day stay at this charming B&B. Delicious food, catering to our dietary needs, covering me with a warm blanket, we were treated like royals. What a delightful stay.

I cannot recommend higher the service, cleanliness, food, and hospitality we were treated to at this lovely B&B. We left feeling like we had made two great friends and were sorry to go. Situated just a block from downtown Algonquin, we walked to dinner. Do not miss the Italian Restaurant on the corner, fantastic! We'll be back!

Had a wonderful stay. Wonderful food and impeccable service.

Great Reunion

5 on September 10, 2015

Five of us rented the whole house for a reunion. It was a perfect place to get comfortable in a home like atmosphere. Sherry and Carolyn clearly care about the comfort and happiness of their guests. The breakfasts were outstanding and varied each day. Carolyn provided fresh scones and coffee outside our rooms in the early morning before a full breakfast. Fresh fruit every morning and beautifully presented. The house itself is very quiet. No noise from room to room or from the kitchen. There are at least three communal gathering places for quiet conversation. I would absolutely recommend Victorian Rose Garden.

A Great Place to Stay

Sherry was a wonderful host and her breakfast was delicious! Algonquin is a nice little town to visit. We would definitely come back!

Great place for cyclists

5 on May 12, 2015

Great place for cyclists. My wife and I stayed here one night while riding the Fox River Trail. The B&B's location couldn't be better as it is within sight of the bike trail on the one side and within a few blocks of three decent restaurants on the other. Sherry, the Owner and Innkeeper lives on the premises and has done so for 40 years. She has space for overnight bike parking in her large detached garage. The B&B itself is very nicely decorated (if you like Victorian) and our room had a large bathroom attached with a claw-foot tub. The breakfast in the morning was ready on time and very hearty: eggs benedict. We would definitely return and recommend the Victorian Rose Garden to anyone needing to stay in or near Algonquin.

Unexpected Charm

Beautifully decorated and warmly comfortable, the Victorian Rose Garden was a most surprising discovery. Mrs. Brewer welcomed us, gave us cookies warm from the oven as we were shown to our room, and made every effort to make our stay an enjoyable one. Breakfast was outstanding. We hope another opportunity to stay there comes along soon.
