Excellent B&B

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Victorian House. Steve and Kathy were very accommodating and the house is beautiful. It is conveniently located for the Bowling Green attractions including Mammoth Cave.

Excellent hospitality in a good location

Steve & Cathy were charming hosts with a lovely home. The rooms were spacious and clean; the bed was very comfortable. The property is easy to reach from the motorway. I would recommend this B&B to other travellers.

Home away from home in Kentucky

Kathy and Steve welcomed us into their lovely home. The rooms are spotless, the bed comfortable, and private bath. The amenities were great, including bath robes, soft drinks and water, tv, hairdryer. The home cooked breakfast each morning was delicious. It is in Smith Grove, Ky. and close to Mammoth Cave. the only slight draw back is there are no decent restaurants close by, you have to travel to Bowling Green (15 min). However, there are several fast food restaurants within a mile.

clean wins everytime

Everything was perfect. Personally I look for clean. It was immaculate. If a place is not clean then all else fails. Loved the clean.

First time staying at a B&B

5 on June 05, 2015

Our stay could not have been better. We arrived after a long drive from Central PA to warm hospitality, beautiful ambiance and a relaxed, restful atmosphere. The room was awesome and breakfast was superb. Cathy and Steve are just the best, so helpful and kind. We plan to stay there again and definitely recommend the Victorian House Bed & Breakfast to anyone traveling in the Smiths Grove or Bowling Green area.

This Victorian is beautifully kept and decorated. The hosts are very friendly. Breakfast was nice but nothing special.

Step Back In Time

Steve and Kathy are doing a marvelous job of "getting it together" with their new, first time adventure. Cute little town with fun antique stores.

Wonderful six nights at the Victorian House!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary in March 2015 by touring south central Kentucky. The Victorian House B&B is a great value, just far enough away from the big city, yet walking distance to shopping. We liked the small town location in Smiths Grove, and the easy 10 minute drive to Bowling Green. The Victorian House is a beautiful building; the rooms are large and clean (we loved the king bed in Melanie's Room, with excellent cable TV, wireless, recliner and large private bath), and with cordial hosts and wonderful breakfasts. We'll recommend this B&B to our friends, and want to go back to stay again and see more of the sights in the warmer seasons, that we didn't get to see in March.
