Beautiful Victorian style home

Loved this B and B. Our innkeeper was amazing and friendly. She also happens to be a culinary trained chef. The room was spacious and quite comfortable. The home had plenty of downstairs rooms for relaxing. We got an excellent recommendation for dinner, which thoroughly enjoyed. Breakfast was amazing. Would stay here again if we get back this way.

Great for a family get together

We stayed in the Nest which was perfect for our group of 8.Be forewarned that it is on the third floor though, so it may not be best for someone with health or mobility problems. It is a great location close to downtown, dining , shopping and local attractions and right next to Eisenhower park and all its recreation opportunities. Our breakfast was delicious. A most enjoyable stay.

Rodeo intown

Always nice atmosphere. Rodeo going on at time of stay. Very nice people in town. Adriane and Jay always have time to talk. We always stay here when we go through the area from Denver.

Very enjoyable stay. After a long day in the car, we were able to relax. It was nice to be able to use the two bikes to explore Abilene. Breakfast was wonderful and another guest played the piano. Only reason I had a lower rating for value was because the only room available for 3 was the nest, which was more than we needed and cost a bit more.

Delightful, Comfortable, Hospitable, Historic!!

I wish I had been able to stay in Abilene longer to stay more than one night as I would have loved more nights at Abilene's Victorian Inn B&B. What a wonderful experience it was! Adrian and Jay were the PERFECT hosts: welcoming, friendly, engaging, helpful, personable. And Adrian is a knock-out chef! The breakfast was outstanding - delicious tasting and pleasingly presented in this historic mansion. Adrian and Jay have set up such a welcoming environment in not only the room but the common areas of their home. You simply can't go wrong with staying here. This was such a better option than staying at a hotel as I had the opportunity to chat with Adrian and Jay and some of the other guests over breakfast. I HIGHLY recommend Abilene's Victorian Inn B&B. Staying there makes me want to find other reasons to go back to Abilene! Mike

We have stayed here before during past reunions and have never been disappointed. Adrian and Jay are very gracious, the food excellent and they can direct you to the best food and attraction sites in and around Abilene. It is in a great old quiet neighborhood and If you like that old Victorian atmosphere of days past, this is the place to stay and no more expensive than your local Holiday Inn.

This is an historic mansion with roots deep in Abilene history. Dwight Eisenhower's best boyhood friend lived here. Every detail of the inn's décor has been carefully selected including vintage magazine's on the parlor's table. The breakfast was a gourmet delight as the owner is a certified chef. The cost was less than the chain motels on the interstate.....genuine personal hospitality.

Fabulous breakfast, hospitality, and comfortable lodging in an historic gem!

Our stay at Abilene's Victorian Inn exceeded our expectations in every way! The property is an historic gem that has been lovingly maintained and appropriately decorated by the friendly owners, Adrian and Jay. Upon our arrival, we were enthusiastically welcomed and given a tour of the house. It was clear that Adrian and Jay had made every effort to learn about the house and maintain it's authenticity. The bedroom we stayed in was the smallest (at our request), but was plenty big enough for the two of us and included an attached bathroom. We found it very comfortable and cozy. We spent time enjoying the birds and taking in the fresh air on the front porch, both evening and morning. The surrounding neighborhood was great for a morning run or stroll, with tree-lined streets and lots of beautifully maintained old homes. The location is very convenient to the Eisenhower Museum and Library, too. In the morning we were treated to a delicious gourmet breakfast lovingly prepared and artfully presented by Chef Adrian, accompanied by good conversation with other guests seated at our table. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Abilene, and we will surely stay here on our next visit!

Best inn in Abilene

Innkeepers Adrian and Jay are the best. Our room was fantastic and super comfortable. Enjoyed the historical aspect of the inn too. We suggest you dine in with Chef Adrian's amazing cuisine offerings. The inn atmosphere really encourages conversation with its many quaint sofas to choose from while listening to tunes of yesteryear. Play a tune on the vintage piano Nat King Cole once played and admire the family heirloom China in the dining room. The the breakfast served in the morning is gourmet and delicious. We plan to return one day. It was the B&B that we stayed in during our 2 week trip across 7 states. That really says something!

Great bed and breakfast!
