This is a great location - between the caves and Bowling Green. The place is like a museum and is every bit Victorian - inside and out. The hosts are great and we would be glad to stay again! The breakfast is awesome and lasts until dinner.

Most beautiful and authentic b and b we've ever stayed at.

My husband and I stayed at Victorian House Bed and Breakfast on our trip to Mammoth Cave National Park. The Rhet room was cozy and adorable. Dana took great care of us and the breakfast was amazing. We enjoyed walking across the street in the morning and exploring several cute antique shops. It was located very close to the park. If we ever travel that way again we would gladly revisit Victorian House.

November stay at bed and breakfast

The owners were very warm and friendly and personable, but did not hover over us. Rooms were charming. Would recommend to anyone!

Great Stay, Great Hosts

I found the Victorian House B&B on Trip Advisor and it had great reviews. My wife and I spend 2 nights there and we were not disappointed. Steve and Kathy were great hosts and the breakfast was really good. Smiths Grove is a small town with some nice antique shops. There are not many places to eat there but you are just a short drive from Bowling Green which has plenty of places to eat and lots of things to do. The Victorian House B&B is also about 15 miles from Mammoth Cave so make sure to visit that too. We really enjoyed our stayed and would not hesitate to stay again when we are in the area.

Very Nice.

The owners, although having busy schedules were welcoming and not rushed. They shared about the house and the area. The home was nicely decorated and pleasant. This B and B was a nice find.

This House is an Absolute Jewel!

A step back in time, Victorian House Bed and Breakfast is an outstanding example of period architecture with lavish, ornate furnishings. Everywhere you look, you see something new, something special, something characteristic of Victorian taste and creative design. Our hosts, Steve and Kathy, were very warm and gracious, eager to please their guests . As a traveler, you almost want to put aside your outdoor plans and simply explore the house itself! Since we had to leave early in the morning, we could not stay for the full breakfast. That accounts for the medium rating on dining. But don't let that deter you -- other guests gave it high scores! We highly recommend this B&B, located just a short distance from Mammoth Cave.

Excellent stay!!

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Scarlet room. We enjoyed the room, the house, and the owners very much. We would definitely stay there again. Everything was clean, and very comfortable.
