A lovely place to stay in Abilene

I was in Abilene for the annual marathon, and Adrian and Jay could not have been more supportive and nicer. The location of the inn is ideal for a short walk into town and back from the race - or take the shuttle. But I would not just recommend the Inn for that time of the year - it would be great any time. And they went out of their way to support my dietary needs with amazing food.

A Wonderful Weekend in Abilene

Outstanding bed and breakfast! Great atmosphere; takes you right back to the 1940s. Could not be more welcoming and comfortable, and the proprietress is a gem.

Room was pleasant, a little flowery for me but it's Victorian. Near park, quiet neighborhood, Adrian was very accommodating by preparing breakfast for us before normal. Afternoon cookies and snacks. Water provided in the room. I enjoyed the stay and would stay again when in the area.

An all-around wonderful experience.

I was in Abilene for a marathon and decided to stay at Abilene's Victorian Inn. The day after I made my reservation, Adrian called me to ask a couple of questions about my stay, including what I wanted for breakfast on the morning of the marathon. She said that she tries to accommodate runners who have a pre-race ritual, and unfortunately, my pre-race ritual only involves a banana and orange juice (which meant that I did not get to experience one of her great breakfasts like the one that I had the previous morning). In addition to the fantastic breakfast, I enjoyed the history and style of the inn and highly recommend staying there.

We enjoyed the hospitality very much. So pleasant to sit in the parlor in the evenin and listen to music of the 40s and 50s.

Unforgettable weekend!

Spent the weekend with a couple of girlfriends and didn't want to leave! As soon as we pulled up to the place and walked in the door, I felt right at home. As I looked around, I was in awe of the beautiful antique furnishings, lace curtains, wood floors, the beautiful Victorian decor, and all the personal touches. Amazing breakfast, wonderful hospitality, and I slept like a baby. I felt so refreshed. This place is clearly a labor of love for Jay and Adrian. Hope to be back some day!

A Top B&B!

What an outstanding Victorian-period Bed & Breakfast! Adrian & Jay are warm, helpful, & charming hosts. The furnishings & atmosphere took us back in time ... refreshing & relaxing, considering the hectic world we live in. Accommodations were superb & the nightly rate makes this B&B a superior value. Clean, comfortable, and the breakfasts were all 5 stars! (Adrian is a professional chef.) Would my wife & I stay here again? Absolutely! In a heartbeat! (P.S. I'm retired military so consider me "picky" wherever we lodge!)

Great for a celebration get away
