Wonderful experience

Stayed for 2 days, needed to get away to a quite place, the room was super clean and beautiful, the inn keepers were fantastic, breakfast over the top. What a pleasure, it was first time staying at bed and breakfast and what a fantastic experience.

Great 30th birthday experience!

5 on August 24, 2015

This was our first bed and breakfast experience, and I took my fiance here to celebrate his 30th birthday. The property was beautiful and well taken care of, and John and Cindy went out of there to help with some birthday surprises along the way, which only added to the experience. The food served was very good, and the wine and cheese hour was an added bonus! We chose to add the breakfast in our room so we could have some more time to ourselves, and it came in a cute little picnic basket with all the place settings ready to go. It was perfect, and delicious too. Lodi, WI is a small town - but there was plenty to do. We went to the Wollersheim winery before arriving, and then checked-in and had some more wine and cheese with the guest at Victorian Dreams. We then split ways and walked into town (only a 5-minute walk) and had dinner in-town. We then had some after dinner drinks at the wine bar on the block before heading in for the night. The next day, we drove to Lake Wisconsin, took the ferri to Merrimac, and spent the day at Devil's Lake. Plenty to do, and great accommodations! Thanks John and Cindy!

Elegant yet Cozy

We had a wonderful experience of feeling pampered in luxury yet relaxed and cozy during our stay. Cindy and John attend to every detail from preparing a scrumptious breakfast to ensuring our room was perfectly appointed with every possible amenity. We look forward to visiting again when in the Madison area. This place is an absolute gem!

Wonderfully surprised! Exceptionally romantic!

Many B&Bs advertise what they want to be, but this B&B exceeded our expectations. The owners went above and beyond to make us feel like we belong and were home. The guests were wonderful and the suite fantastic. We were extremely happy with the quiet rooms and romantic spender of the property. Make this the unexpected surprised that is sure to please! Enjoy.

What a wonderful getaway with fantastic owners! Beautiful room, very personalized service and great breakfast. Will definitely return and tell my friends.

Thank You!

Unbelievable! Thank you so much! We have stayed in many B&Bs over the years and this is exceptional. John and Cindy go out of their way to provide extraordinary breakfasts, hospitality, and help with dinner reservations and directions! We can't believe how spotless the Inn was and how precisely each room was prepared! Thank you for the "special"room service breakfast on Sunday morning and also thank your neighbor for returning my jewelry that I dropped as we were entering the Inn on Saturday night! Wonderful "small town" hospitality and honesty! Can't express how much we appreciated our time in Lodi and at your home. Hope to see you in the fall to visit Lodi again and hike Devils Lake.

A return trip for good reason

5 on November 19, 2014

This was our second stay at Victorian Dreams, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Abigail's Oasis was truly that -- a well-appointed, spacious retreat. The fireplace was wonderful with the cool, rainy days we experienced that week. John and Cindy are so fun to visit with, and they run the b&b with excellence. We appreciated several good restaurants within walking distance in Lodi -- a great small town in a beautiful area.

My partner and I needed a place to stay on our way to Chicago, and we thought it'd be fun to stay at a B&B in the Madison area. Victorian Dreams was everything we'd hoped for and more--the room was beautiful, and John and Cindy were incredibly accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this B&B and sincerely hope we have a chance to stay there again!

October Visit

Everything was wonderful. There is a lot to do in the area! Cindy and John were wonderful hosts! We look forward to visiting again.

Relaxing Stay

5 on October 06, 2014

I recently stayed at Victorian Dreams during a business trip. John and Cindy were wonderful hosts. I felt comfortable in there home traveling alone as a female. The area around their home is very beautiful and quiet. I recommend the Inn highly and hope to visit again with my husband in the future.
