Breakfast at Inn Victoria is Okemo Valley's BEST

Want to enjoy the BEST breakfast in the Okemo Valley?  Inn Victoria, a Romantic Vermont bed and breakfast has what you are looking for.  It is amazing how many people register with us and say; "we've been told the breakfast at Inn Victoria is heavenly"!  In fact, we lost count at the number of people who have walked in off the street (without a room reservation) asking for breakfast, having been told by friends this is the place to have the BEST breakfast ever!

Each day, Inn Victoria serves a three course gourmet breakfast.  As a starter today, we enjoyed a raspberry and lemon yogurt muffin, still warm when placed on the table.  For the second course, a fresh baked apple with cinnamon and mascarpone cheese.  Just when you think you've enjoyed a wonderful, light breakfast....out comes the savory, main dish.

A Light Crape Shell With the Fix-ins

Imagine a light crape shell for breakfast with baked chive, cheddar cheese, garlic, two eggs over medium, covered with a fresh tomato puree and a touch of cilantro!

Penny has made this an exceptional dish at Inn Victoria.  Here it is; a savory dish with Vermont maple syrup sausage and pan fried red potatoes.

Gluten Free Friendly Bed and Breakfast, Chester Vermont

What may appear to be a simple little detail to some people, can actually be a big concern to others who's health depends upon an attentive Innkeeper.  At Inn Victoria, a Romantic Vermont Bed and Breakfast, we pay attention to that detail in a BIG way.  The following Tripadvisor quote is testament to that point.  In fact....Penny is attentive to egg free and dairy free cooking, as needed.  Watch for a blog later this fall about Penny's gluten free waffles ...Yummy!

We stayed at this incredible inn for a romantic weekend a while ago.
The rooms were beautiful- large, spacious, clean, comfortable, great bathrooms, luxurious... just great.
The food was absolutely delicious both for breakfast and high tea, and the owners were hugely accommodating of our gluten allergy.
Unlike some rural inns that are located in the middle of nowhere, the Inn Victoria is located right on the main street of Chester, which means easy walking distance to restaurants and shops.
The owners were wonderful and sweet. They were very helpful, but unlike some inn owners, the weren't constantly getting in our way or invading our privacy.

It was truly the best B&B experience ever!

Crows Bakery Reopens after Irene; Inn Victoria is Thrilled

When tropical storm Irene hit Central Vermont, Inn Victoria, a Chester Vermont Bed and Breakfast, was spared the damage that many homes and businesses suffered.  Crows Bakery and Opera House Cafe is one of those businesses that was hardest hit by Irene, and today they are emerging from the mess and once again providing their outstanding baked goods to the community.

Irene dropped eight inches of water in the Black River basin, through the Okemo Valley Region.  Proctorsville, Vermont got slammed with a continuous flow of water that was simply unstoppable.  Crows Bakery and Opera House Cafe were in the direct path, destroying all of their inventory, cutting power, and damaging the building.  Over six weeks of clean up has lead to this days' opening, and for that we are all happy.  Inn Victoria, salutes Crow's Bakery and Opera House Cafe for their determination to persevere and reopen.  Our friends at the bakery provide Inn Victoria with pastries, cakes and scones for High Tea.
