Way better than a hotel

5 on September 13, 2016

Just a few miles off the interstate, Victorian Dreams is very clean and peaceful. The rooms are quiet and romantic and you don't even know anyone else is in the house. John and Cindy are gracious hosts and the food and treats they provided were better than expected and not something you will find on a hotel buffet. Very unique and delicious. If we get the chance, we will make that stop again!

Our new favorite place to stay!

5 on August 29, 2016

This was the first time we stayed at a B&B and glad it was here. Our son and his wife stayed here and they loved it too. It is on a quiet street yet close enough to town to walk to a couple restaurants or go for an ice cream. One of my favorite things was sitting on the porch swing or in the rocking chair on the porch and just relaxing and talking as the sun went down. My husband enjoyed playing the piano in the sitting room. The rooms are beautiful and the room we had contained a large bathroom with a Jacuzzi which was very soothing after a long day of hiking. In the morning was a delicious breakfast prepared by John and Cindy. They are so friendly and have tried hard to meet your every need down to the last detail. It is like coming to visit old friends and you are sad when you go! We will certainly be staying here again!

We'll keep coming back

This is by far our favorite B&B in the area. The rooms are amazing with wonderful jetted tubs and fireplace settings. The inn itself is gorgeous with amazing attention to detail. The breakfast is 5 star and John and Cindy are the friendliest keepers we have yet to meet. We have stayed here 3 times now and are panning on many more.

Amazing stay and experience

I really enjoyed my stay at Victorian Dreams last weekend! Even the unseasonably cold weather (mid-May, but it felt like December!) could not chase away the warmth that Cindy & John infuse in their cozy and elegant B & B! I would highly recommend Victorian Dreams for your stay in Lodi, WI. Thank you, Cindy & John!

Must stay!

John and Cindy were accommodating from the time we made our reservation. Everything was really clean! You can tell that they care about the customers and the homes. Every little detail was thought of. Complimentary snacks and bottled water in the room, even q-tips in the bathroom! The towels and bedding were superb. Far nicer than I have in my own home. Breakfast was amazing, again you can tell that they really care. We would stay again, no questions asked!

Perfect for our Anniversary

This was the perfect place to stay for our 15th anniversary. Being close to Madison was great and convenient. Great food and very accommodating owners. Thank you John & Cindy!

Gracious and Elegant

We spent the weekend of Oct. 17th and the following Monday along with 2 friends. The inn is charming, elegant, and very well maintained. The sense of history and respect for the two old mansions that permeates the inn is fantastic. Breakfasts were unique and delightful. We enjoyed the porch, sitting quietly, reading and sipping wine in a glorious riot of fall colors. Best of all, Cindy and John, the owners were exceedingly gracious, pleasant and just plain fun. All in all, a top notch experience. George Klopp

Great place to stay!

It was our first time in one B&D and we loved it! The Victorian Dreams is a very cosy and warm place to stay! It is like staying in your grandma´s house! The room is very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was great in the two days that we stayed there, with John showing that he is a great chef and Cindy being very welcoming and friendly. So, I highly recomend to stay in Victorian Dreams, it is difficult to imagine to not have a great time there.

Wonderful experience
