About

An elegant Victorian Bed & Breakfast Inn located on the village green in Chester, where you’ll find great restaurants and fascinating shops. We have eight romantic guest rooms and suites all with Queen or King bed and furnished with beautiful antiques. Each room has its own charm and unique features: all beds have 1000 count sheets with feather toppers, several rooms have fire places, cable, LCD flat screen TV, CD, DVD, Ipod docking alarm clocks & WiFi. Two first floor rooms have a private deck with hot tub. All have private bathrooms, (some larger than most B & B bedrooms!!!) with quality toiletries, fluffy towels and guest robes. We give you a choice of claw foot tubs, huge double showers, soaking tubs or Jacuzzi made for two. Enjoy gourmet breakfasts (our specialty!), with English antique bone china, crystal glass and silver table ware. We serve afternoon tea with non stop home baked goods. We can arrange dinner or light supper (by prior request). But best of all is the warm and genuine “Royal” welcome to your “Palace” in Vermont. Visit our website for more information at .innvictoria

THE ABSOLUTE BEST PLACE TO STAY

5 on June 17, 2013

Penny, Jess, Betsy, and Dan are all a PERFECT well oiled machine. You relax as soon as you get into the front door. It is immaculate! The food is to die for. You have to do the High Tea...it is an out of body experience. We absolutely LOVE that Inn and would VERY highly recommend it to any one (and actually we do). Once you go there...you will not be able to stay anywhere else...NO Inn can hold a candle to this one...Thank You to our friends that turned us on to this Inn...we will be advertising to anyone traveling in the Vermont area....Inn Victoria is THE ONLY INN that you will remember and want to go back to again and again...

Innkeeper Response
Fantastic....we are thrilled that you are happy and relaxed. We do look forward to seeing you again soon.

Home away from home!

5 on December 27, 2012

Penny and Dan (the owners) are just amazing! It took a couple of minutes to realize that what we entered was not just a great bed and breakfast, but it was indeed HOME! They, their family and their assistant Jessica are incredible! We arrive on Christmas day and they offered Xmas dinner to all the guests! and it really felt like being with your family! Breakfast is just fabulous and the decoration of each room is impeccable! I Really recommend if you are looking something out of the ordinary and if you want to relax in a cozy, warm, full of love place!


Great B&B

Excellent and inviting inn and staff. Jessica was in charge during owners vaca period - she's very engaging, friendly, and help make our stay very enjoyable. Highly recommended. Excellent rooms as well.


My best experience at a B&B

4.6 on August 15, 2011

I love staying at B&Bs whenever I can, and the Inn Victoria was BY FAR the best experience I've had at a B&B. Yes, I've had a nicer room elsewhere, though the Princess Beatrice was a lovely and very comfortable room. I've stayed at inns that were outwardly more attractive, though the Inn Victoria has a certain charm to its quaint front porch. Other inns have had a living room area available for guests' use, but the spacious and welcoming living room here just begs to be used. The true difference at the Inn Victoria is not the accommodations. It is the genuine friendliness of the innkeepers, their superb attention to detail, and their incredible food (amazing breakfasts, wonderful high tea, and scrumptious freshly baked desserts available all day long). Dan, Penny, and Jessica go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and special. They are truly amazing people and run the best B&B I’ve ever experienced. If you’re looking for a magnificent place to stay in Vermont, choose the Inn Victoria. You'll be glad you did.


Like a childhood fantasy

5 on August 13, 2011

My fiance and I originally picked this B&B because it reminded us of a Playmobil set we had both enjoyed as children. This is exactly the kind of place I would have wanted to stay as a child, with period decor, kind hosts, and elegant breakfasts. Staying there as an adult was just as much fun. Dan is a Vermont ambassador, and was able to help us map out a day trip all over the Connecticut River Valley. The breakfast that Penny and Jessica made was delicious (especially the berry parfaits and creme brulee french toast)! The coffee and tea was probably the best we had on our trip. My only caution is that if you stay in the Princess Beatrice room, the bathroom is in the bedroom, and the rooms are not completely separated. It's perfect for a solo traveler, but if you have a companion, you'll have to make arrangements for some private time. That said, it was easy for us to work this out between us, and we had a truly relaxing and pleasant stay!


Worth the Trip

4.8 on July 15, 2011

The Innkeepers at the Inn Victoria, Penny and Dan, were friendly, helpful, and extremely generous with their time. They went out of their way to be accomodating and to ensure that we made the most of our visit to Vermont. We have stayed at a number of B&B's over the last several years, so we have a pretty good idea of how different B&B's stack up, and the Inn Victoria was one of the best inns. The inn also provided numerous amenities including a Keurig coffee maker for 24/7 coffee service, a wide assortment of gourmet teas, homemade afternoon snacks, and Grand Marnier.


Elegant and Comfortable

4.6 on April 05, 2011

The inn keeper was amazing, especially the cooking. The information given to us about places to go was right on. They were always willing to give us advice if we wanted it. Very friendly and would most definitely stay here again if in the area.


Best Inn Experience

5 on July 14, 2010

The Inn Victoria is absolutely the most inviting and delightful place I have ever spent a night. Our Host and Hostess, Dan and Penny make the experience one that you will never forget. Their very warm and inviting personalities and that over their wonderful daughter Rachel create a warm, comfortable and inviting atmosphere while allowing you the opportunity to either mingle with the family or other guests, or enjoy the quiet elegance of the inn. What ever you choose, the Inn Victoria should be your first choice.


Joyous Experience

5 on June 20, 2010

Combine a family who is truly interested in the well being of their guests with perfection in food and accommodations and you have a place that you would recommend to your very best friends. My hosts bent over backwards to make me comfortable...which was a challenge after several days of hiking. It was truly the best experience of my walking tour!
