About

The Grand Victorian Inn plays host to 11 beautiful and unique Victorian guest rooms and Mammoth Railway Cafe. The Historic Train Station Inn is now the Bike and Hike Trailhead to Mammoth Cave National Park. Amenities include a full breakfast, consisting of fresh fruit, orange juice, scrambled eggs, bacon, and one of the following, waffles, pancakes, or French toast. All guest rooms are individually decorated with each having a private bath, cable TV, and wireless internet. We cannot guarantee the room you booked but will make every effort to give you the room you desired. The wrap-around-porch with outdoor seating, in a country setting, causes you to relax and enjoy the occasional train passing by. Karin & Gary Carroll had a vision for this property in 1994, come and make memories and enjoy our dream. Full renovations were completed starting in March of 2015. We opened 8/3/15 and have been blessed with the history of the Mentz Hotel stretches back to just after the Civil War. Mr. Mentz was the train station master for Mammoth Cave Railroad Co. from 1853, taking visitors to Mammoth Cave on four passenger cars. In 1885 he and Mr. Renfro created the Mentz Hotel; unfortunately, it burned down in 1903. The current hotel was built in 1905, hosting guests until 1992, it is beautiful once again, come and stay awhile.

Wonderful Bed & Breakfast

5 on April 09, 2018

We enjoyed every minute. Very helpful friendly staff and owners. I had never stayed at a B&B and never thought I would want to until now. They give you as much attention as you want or leave you alone if that’s what you would prefer. Great restaurant and dinning room at the Inn. Great food. Family style breakfast in the morning but you can always order from the menu when you’re ready to eat. The restaurant has very reasonable hours. We forgot to make reservations at Mammoth Cave and they were sold out but Mammoth Cave has a $5.00 self guided tour that take about 45 minutes which was enough for our first time. We plan on going back and will stay at The Grand Victorian but make reservations for the cave well in advance. It’s a great very relaxing place to stay. Definitely 5 Stars from our experience. If you’re like me and never thought you’d like to stay at a B&B you should try this one first. I think you will enjoy the experience. Mike J.


Nostalgic and Pleasant

4.6 on March 26, 2018

This was our first B&B experience and we were very pleased. Everything was comfortable and the people were friendly and welcoming. The trains were not an issue, but instead added to the nostalgia of the experience. The room was so cozy and homey.


Delightful old-time experience with modern amenities.

Absolutely wonderful stay, staff, restaurant and all! Beautiful place! I loved how the old was preserved in architecture and furnishings (including the 2 old sinks in the hall upstairs!), but updated, with "today" baths and bedding. Very clean. Although the bedrooms were too cold for awhile, that resulted in a gathering in the hall, with its comfy chairs and couches, that was most enjoyable. Even the trains tooting by right outside the front door all night just added to the charm. I recommend ear plugs for those who want to avoid the nostalgia of trains nearby. My son and I enjoyed our visit very much.


Mammoth Stay

4.6 on November 02, 2017

Our stay at the Grand Victorian Inn went very well. The owners were a delight, as was the chef. The staff was responsive to our needs from the time that we initially arrived on the property to the time that we were leaving two days later. We slept like babies, as the beds were most comfortable. Although the breakfast was ordinary, it was plentiful and got us going in the mornings. The decor and atmosphere was super, with there were many old train memorabilia to look at throughout the house. We would definitely stay there again.


Our stay

2.6 on October 26, 2017

Stayed for 2 nights. First night there was one other couple. There was no staff available the entire night. Very strange.I have a medicine that needs to be dissolved in water, but there were no cups in the room. We had to find an open store to buy a cup. Breakfast was at best average and the same every morning.


Disappointing stay. Would not go again.

2.2 on October 09, 2017

Hostess/host not there at check-in time; upstairs hallway smelled funny, like musty antiques; room was very small; breakfast interrupted by staff giving long-winded history of the inn. (After he went on for several minutes, people got up and left.) Would not recommend, and will not stay there again.


Such Nice People

We had a very nice stay. Misty and Matt were charming. We heard about their chickens, ducks, calf and children. Misty even made me a scrambled duck egg for breakfast. I would definitely return.


A Day At The Inn

4.2 on September 10, 2017

Very cute place. Wonderful service. Delicious breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable.


Great if you LOVE trains!

4.6 on September 01, 2017

If you just like trains, beware, as it is right next to the tracks and trains go by ALL night long, blowing their horns and shaking the building. Other than that, and flat pillows, we loved our stay here. It is rustic, beautiful, and peaceful...in between trains. Rooms were clean and cute. The family-style breakfast was a nice way to start our day. Owners and keepers were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again...with earplugs.


Outstanding value

4.6 on August 28, 2017

We enjoyed our stay and especially the front porch with the rocking chairs. Most of the evening was spent sitting, watching the trains go by and enjoying the company of the owner and other guests. The rooms were exceptionally clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend this B&B the next time you are in the Mammoth Cave area.
