Abilene's Victorian Inn was a beautiful home. The whole time we were there we were treated as though we were guest in their home, not just another couple needing a place to sleep. They knew our name and wanted to get to know us. And the food, it was INCREDIBLE! Adrian, made the most delicious breakfast. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a place to say that feels like home.

I wanted to share our experience visiting the Victorian Inn. My brother and I wanted to take our 82 year old father out for a boys weekend adventure. It started in Abilene and the first stop was this bed and breakfast. What a way to kick off the trip! My dad had never been to a B&B before and Adrianne met us at the door. She showed us around the first floor and we were quickly taken in by the charm of this home. In addition she really made us feel like family. When Jay, her husband arrived, he grabbed my dads bags and escorted us to our quarters on the third floor. We had the entire thing to ourselves. He pointed out all the details of our room. The deck off the master room, the temp control, the fridge and then invited us down for home made cookies in the dining room. The beds were spacious and comfortable. We lounged on the back balcony for a visit before grabbing our chocolate chip cookies. Sitting in the parlor we listened to 1930's big band music from the upright vintage radio. My dad was in paradise talking to us about some of his childhood memories! We even took a group picture wearing the parlor hats adorning the sitting room. After a great nights sleep we headed for the dining room. The breakfast was formal as we dined with six other guests. Adrianne, who is a Chef, started us with creamy yogurt topped with granola with assorted fruit on the side. Then Walnut Carmel French toast, crisp bacon just the way I like it, coffee and juice. After a breakfast like this we we ready for the day! Thank you Adrianne and Jay for making this family event one we will never forget!

I'm still new to the B&B scene so I don't have more than a handful of experiences to go off. Overall this place was pretty decent and the service was wonderful. The breakfast was tasty and Miss Abilene herself gave us all the options for dinner. If I find myself driving through that area again I will definitely stay there again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Abilene and at the Victorian Inn B&B. The Inn's location was perfect for our activities and walking distance to downtown area. Bonuses: - Breakfast was awesome when we were able to participate - Place was spotless - Large rooms - Loved the 1930's and 1940's LIFE magazines. Slightly less than perfect: - Bed/mattress was creaky and not the most comfortable (maybe part of the charm) - Set breakfast time so were unable to attend 2 of 4 morning due conference schedule and need to travel. Though we did appreciate the granola bars and coffee it fell short of expectations after the gourmet breakfasts we did enjoy.

The house is beautifully decorated and as true to the period as can be allowed. The breakfasts were elegantly served and outstanding presentation. All our needs were met. Very large rooms and plenty of space for relaxing.
