We had a great stay here. Peggy was out of town when we arrived, so her husband Tim greeted us upon arrival. Very friendly folks. Peggy gave us a wonderful breakfast in the morning, and by the time we checked out, it was like we were old friends. House is beautifully decorated. A++! We look forward to staying again.

We will be back to stay again! I left my pet's blanket there & Peggy had it in the mail promptly, without me even calling her! The Victoria Loft B & B is a must visit. Cheri, Will & Charlie; Granville MA

The rooms were immaculate and nicely decorated. Breakfast was amazing -- freshly made juice, fresh fruit, homemade muffins ... overall a terrific place to stay. Enjoyed the family atmosphere and lovely quiet surroundings. Would definitely come here again.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience than the evening I spent at the Victorian B&B after a long drive from Massachusetts on my way home to Cincinnati. My room was beautifully appointed and when I needed to get online Peggy was more than helpful. As I was getting ready to turn in the smell of muffins baking in the kitchen came wafting up the stairs. In the morning Peggy had breakfast with all of the guests, I had the pleasure of meeting an incredibly wonderful family and introducing them to my dogs too. Thank you for again for a great experience.
