A Baby Shower at Inn Victoria, A chester Vermont Bed and Breakfast

For Intimate events such as a baby shower, family reunions, weddings for 50 people or less, choose our Bed and Breakfast, Inn Victoria, a Romantic Vermont destination.  Here is one note of a very happy customer.

Dear Penny and Dan,

I've been meaning to write you to tell you what a fabulous weekend we had for my sister's baby shower at the beginning of March.  The party was fantastic and all the food delicious!  We all passed around the recipes that you shared with my aunt!  Can't wait to try the scones myself.  The venue was just right for an intimate and special baby shower.  It was just perfect!  Plus the mothers both LOVED their rooms and everything about staying with you for the weekend.  They were absolutely thrilled. The biggest compliments I heard from them was how much they really enjoyed the both of you. You were both so friendly and accommodating that you made it such a comfortable and enjoyable stay.  I'm really glad I decided to have my sister's baby shower with you.  Thank you so much, again! 
And I'm thinking that someday when my husband and I need a night or two away, we'll be calling you for a get away weekend close to home!
