4 women that needed a break from the world got that and much more. The place is beautiful, warm, friendly, relaxing, and so wonderful! Jay & Adrian were so great-they were welcoming and made you feel at home right away. Adrian is a marvelous chef and her breakfasts are "knock your socks off" wonderful-you never want to leave her table! We stayed in the Nest (3rd floor) we thought we might shop, go out to eat, and a few other things, but we ended up staying in most of the time. It was so cozy and we caught up with each other's lives and relaxed. All I can say is that we will be back and maybe leave the beautiful house next time. Thank you Jay & Adrian for a weekend we desperately needed!

What a delightful experience. Jay and Adrian are such warm and receptive hosts. We love this stop on our way from Denver to St. Louis. The gourmet breakfast is an added bonus. Thanks so much for making our trip special. This was not our first visit and certainly will not be our last.

From the minute we stepped into this beautiful B&B and met Adrian & Jay, we felt so much at home and welcome, we felt we could live there forever. Gorgeous home, great service, delicious food, and much warmth. We would love to return when we can actually enjoy the B&B for a longer period of time. Thanks, Potters, for a wonderful stay!

Adrian and Jay have done everything possible to make your stay so enjoyable. The rooms are charming and breakfast was delicious. The friendly atmosphere at breakfast where one had the chance to chat with other guests added to our enjoyment.. We could thoroughly recommend Abilene's Victorian Inn to future guests.

We enjoyed another good stay at the Victorian Inn in the Eisenhower Room. It's not the largest room but it suits us just fine.

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!
