Engagement at Inn Victoria in Chester, Vermont

We love it when couples make Inn Victoria their location of choice for very special events such as weddings or engagements.  Here is a great note placed on Tripadvisor from Julie about her surprise engagement!

With Julie's permission:
"Thanks to everyone at the Inn Victoria for keeping my engagement a secret - we had a wonderful time and will be returning regularly! Even though I called to confirm my (smaller) room the day before, the Inn did not tip me off that my boyfriend had upgraded our room, ordered flowers and champagne. It was great!

I could not have been more impressed by the home, the room (Prince Albert), our bathroom (which was awesome), and especially the homemade delicious breakfast and tea the next morning while watching the snow fall in beautiful Vermont - what a great time! "

Thank You Julie for the wonderful note.....see you soon!

A Romantic Getaway Story of Love in Southern Okemo Valley, Vermont

A few days ago I posted a blog about Intimate Wedding Packages at Southern Vermont's Best Romantic Bed and Breakfast  (Editors Choice Award) as awarded by Yankee Magazine in 2009.  I was so caught up in the excitement of the March Intimate Weddings and engagements that I forgot to share a quick love story Inn Victoria seems to be blessed with.

You know how some B&B's are cursed with hauntings?  Inn Victoria seems to be blessed with Love in the air.  Since Penny and I have owned the Bed and Breakfast in Chester, VT. we have enjoyed the pleasure of hosting on average of one Intimate Wedding per month and on average of two engagements per month.  Approximately 20+ years ago when this beautiful Victorian building was converted into a Bed & Breakfast, a few brave lovers carved their names inside of a closet of one bedroom.  We found those carvings hidden inside & atop of the door frame, so that no one could see, and have since shown our guests.  Today the inside of the closet is filling with Lover's notes.  Take a look at the latest by Michael and Jessica.
