Excellent B&B!

We stayed at Abilene's Victorian B&B for our seventh wedding anniversary. It was a great stay away from the kids and breakfast was delicious! We will definitely be back! The only thing we were disappointed with was their no gun policy. The room and service was fantastic though

Great for Researchers at the Eisenhower Library

5 on July 26, 2016

Anyone traveling to Abilene to conduct research at the Eisenhower Library (or stopping in town for another reason) should consider staying at Abilene's Victorian Inn. I enjoyed every minute of my two-week stay in the Hurd Room. Adrian and Jay are among the friendliest people you'll meet in Abilene, and that's saying a lot given the high level of hospitality in general. Adrian's breakfasts are delicious and of a plentiful portion, as well as artfully arranged: french toast, quiche, frittata, and more, all preceded by a fruit appetizer. (She's also very accommodating of guests' dietary restrictions.) The Inn is walking distance to the Library (about 15-20 minutes) and most of the other attractions in Abilene, but researchers can contact the Eisenhower Foundation for help in arranging transportation of a more air-conditioned fashion.

Great Place to stay

4.6 on July 05, 2016

The personal service was great and the attention to meeting our needs was excellent. We were on a 2 day trip and this was a good place to stay while exploring north eastern Kansas. The Breakfast was excellent and she is am excellent chef. The use of the old technology VHS movies and players were fun with a great selection. The bed was a bit squeaky and but comfortable enough. The price is well worth it and it is much more fun than the standard hotel.

Better than we hoped for!

The little extras were really unexpected - fresh baked cookies, beverages (including pop), microwave popcorn, and a dried fruit mix - all included with our room. Instead of going out for the evening due to the downpour, we ordered pizza in and played games - quite a variety to choose from. The gourmet breakfast was amazing - beautiful and delicious! My mother commented that she wished it was closer to where they live because she would book it for events all the time, and I agree! I would totally recommend staying here!

Victorian Holiday

5 on May 18, 2016

Staying at Abilene's Victorian Inn was like time travel -- visiting ancestors who had their own personal chef and help. The owner/chef, Adrian, helped us with our luggage and even brought the phone to our room when we had a personal phone call. Surrounded with antique furnishings, waking in a bed draped with organza with sunlight streaming through lace curtains, and dressing at an antique dresser complete with an antique brush and mirror set helped to create lasting memories. Thank you Jay and Adrian for making us feel welcome and at home.

Beautiful Victorian Home in the heart of Abilene

A very nice spacious home. Adrian is a very pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable host which made our stay even more enjoyable. If our travels take us through Kansas again, we certainly would enjoy staying there again. Breakfast was outstanding too!
