What we loved about this B&B was how authentic it felt. The room was not huge, but it was very richly and congruently decorated. The breakfast was very good, and the service was spot-on. I'm sure we'll go there again.

We were very pleasantly surprised by The Victorian Lady. Quality, appearance, friendliness, and value were top-notch.

Beautiful & peaceful

My fiancé and I were completely satisfied with our stay at the Victorian Lady. The old Victorian home is beautiful and our room was so comfortable to be in. The outside views were absolutely gorgeous. The area in which the bed and breakfast is located is a quiet town, just the perfect place for our getaway! Just a few minutes from downtown Norwalk, we walked and ate at the local diner and checked out the shops. The bed and breakfast was so welcoming the staff, to the outdoors gardens, right down to the bed we slept in! We were looking for some peace ad quiet along with a comfortable place, and we could not have been happier!! The coffee was wonderful in the morning, and the breakfast was delicious. I highly recommend taking a few day getaway with your significant other or even just yourself and experience this for yourself.

The bed and breakfast exceeded our expectations. By far the most beautiful place we've ever stayed. Tim, Vickie, and Patti made our stay the perfect getaway

carriage house

My family of five stayed in the private carriage house, which has 3 bedrooms, 1 bath and a kitchen. This was great for us, as we have children, and a lot of the b&b's don't have the accomodations for families. The hosts were very friendly, and the main house is beautiful!

Hosted DAR Valentine's Dinner

We had our February DAR meeting and Valentine's Dinner at the Victorian Lady. The house is breathtakingly beautiful. The Dauch's were warm and wonderful hosts and the food was excellent. If you are visiting Norwalk, this is the place to stay. Thank you for a lovely evening. Jan Bohne

It was my first time staying in a B&B & what a wonderful experience it was. The owners were gracious & made me feel like I was the only one there (even though I wasn't). I will go back again! Food was excellent, surroundings were like taking a step back in time.
