Two Night Stay

We were in Nashville on business and decided to combine that trip with a trip to Bowling Green. Not wanting to stay in a hotel I found this B&B with availability. What a pleasant surprise! Great house and property with interesting guest rooms. We stayed in Melanie’s room. Breakfast was delicious and different each morning. Steve was the best host! A relaxing and enjoyable stay. We will return the next time we are in the area.

Great Place to Stay

We absolutely loved our stay at the Victorian House! To stay here is like stepping back in time! Very Clean, a friendly host, great breakfast and wonderful front porch.....and such a convenient location to the interstate and to Mammoth Cave National Park. Charming little blink and you miss it town of Smith's Grove. I would definitely stay again and am already telling my friends to visit, too.

We stayed 2 nights while we toured Mammoth Cave and had a great experience at this charming house. Steve was very friendly and the breakfasts were outstanding. I was especially pleased to find out he has 2 precious little schnauzers who were a pleasant accompaniment to the french toast and quiche. Melanie's room was roomy and elegant.

I would stay here again

We were motorcycle touring around SC, TN, KY and decided to take the 6 hour Wild cave tour at Mammoth Cave - we wanted a nice quiet place to stay for 2 nights while we were in KY. The Victorian Inn is a beautiful old house with tall 12 foot ceilings and antiques situated throughout. Our Hosts were very nice and accommodated our request that the motorcycles not be parked on the main street. Breakfast was delicious and filling.

Just what we needed

My husband and I enjoyed two relaxing nights at Victorian House B & B. The house is a lovely historic Victorian house with many interesting decorations and features. My husband was particularly fascinated by the solid brick exterior (not made that way anymore). We enjoyed a nice evening on the large porch. Steve and Kathy prepared two delicious breakfasts and accommodated us in every way. .

Public areas are very well decorated and interesting. The host is exceptionally nice, helpful, and prepares a wonderful breakfast. Yard and porch could be exceptional with a little work.
