Great place to get away.

Drove by it the first time, but when we did find it, we were definitely pleased. A very country setting with no neighbors in sight. For dinner we had a great "all you can eat" catfish dinner with all the fixings for less than $11.00. Great change from city noise, bustle and prices.

Innkeeper Response

I am from Iowa and drove to the Victorian Country Inn for a place to stay prior to a cycling competition the next day in Centralia.  I needed some easy conversation, a comfortable bed, quiet and a good breakfast.  Loved the place, top notch.  Barb was great and made my stay exceptional.  If in the area I highly recommend this B&B.  I plan on booking the same location for next years race.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the kind review. I am so proud of your dedication to cycling. It was a pleasure having you for a guest. Look forward to seeing you again. Safe Cycling and Travels. Barbara

The Best B&B we've ever stayed at

5 on July 14, 2017

What a fantastic experience it was staying at the VC Inn. Ms. Barb is a lovely hostess who could not be more accommodating. The place is spotless and our room was extremely comfortable. We can't wait to find an excuse to return for another visit! Very highly recommended - I promise you will not be sorry if you book a reservation here.


Beyond Our Expectations

5 on May 24, 2017

Every once in a while, life treats us beautifully. Our stay at the Victorian Country Inn B & B was one of those times in our lives. Our grandson was graduating from high school and we needed a place to rest. Our bed was comfy, we were shrouded in quietness, enjoyed delicious breakfasts and were delighted to meet the Spencers. Will we return, you bet we will.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your eloquent beautiful review of Victorian Country Inn, B&B. It is my honor and pleasure to be your host here and look forward to your next visit. I enjoyed your celebration of your grandson's graduation. You must be proud. Great school nearby. May God bless you and your family. aka Ms. Bee

Both my husband and I have severe food allergies. Barb made sure to have not only appropriate breakfast items for us, including farm fresh eggs that were delicious, but also a snack the first evening we arrived. The room was amazingly clean and the shower with three shower heads was awesome! We enjoyed a lovely Anniversary weekend.


Would return again

Lovely hostess that is very familiar with the area and she went out of her way to find us other material about places to visit in the state. Great food and very fresh! Room worked out great! Would return again if in the area.
