Owners really care about their guests

We usually stay in B&B's whenever possible instead of sterile hotels. We were not disappointed with Country Victorian. We arrived a little early before regular checkin so just stayed in our vehicle. One of the owners, Arnie, came out to our vehicle to let us know we could check in. He and his wife Lori were great hosts. The food and accommodations were magnificant and we would stay there again. We happened to be the only guests that night so Lori made sure to visit with us since there were no other guests. We really appreciated that.

Most Enjoyable Stay

Our recent stay at the Country Victirian B&B was everything we had hoped for and then some. The gourmet breakfasts each morning were a wonderful way to start the day. Lori and Arnie were very helpful with tips to make our visit to the Indiana Amish Country enjoyable. We look forward to returning for another round of gourmet breakfasts and friendly hosts.

The most impressive thing about this B & B is the attention to details. The staff was friendly and we felt welcome there. The breakfast was beyond our expectations. We would like to make a return visit.

A great step into a past where people were actively a part of the local community

5 on June 02, 2014

Lori and Arnie are the best hosts we have met thus far in our visits to B &Bs. Right in the heart of the Amish Community, this beautiful home became our home with a warm front porch overlooking the traffic that was filled with all modes of transportation, including the Amish horse and buggies filled with smiling, warm, personalities. If you plan to make a trip to this part of Indiana, we would encourage you to stay at the Country Victorian B and B.

Innkeeper Response

We had a great stay. The food was amazing, clean, comfortable and relaxing. Located in a great area with Amish, RV factories, parks, paved trail all nearby. Arnie and Lori were great hosts. Would recommend it anytime.
