Light from the stained glass tower windows
beckon the traveler to the Victorian Inn.
The 20 room Victorian Inn Bed & Breakfast was built in 1876, then enlarged and modernized in 1905 by a Rock Island liquor baron who gave it as a wedding present to his daughter. Purchased by the Parker family in 1944, it is their family home. Original antiques from the family and previous owners of the home adorn the rooms.
We're old fashioned here.
We cherish Old Times, Old Manners, and Old friends.
It's yesterday once more.
The inn is a local landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Three other structures within sight are on National Register. We are located in the Broadway Historic Area here in the heart of Old Rock Island.
Located near downtown and its Arts and Entertainment District, we are in walking distance of music festivals on the plaza, dinner theatre, riverboat casino and fine dining.
Enjoy our wooded gardens where cardinals and black squirrels abound. On a summer's evening sip a cool glass of pink lemonade at the patio table. Wake in the Fall to a full breakfast by a cheerful blaze in our dining room fireplace. Relax for an afternoon on our glassed-in Florida Porch watching lacy snowflakes gently blanket the lawn and woods.
Beveled plate glass French doors open from the spacious living room.
The dining room with its Flemish Oak ceiling beams and paneling is crowned by turn of the century tapestries.
You are invited to a full breakfast served on fine china and linen with sterling silver and Crystal. Your breakfast experience is upscale, yet very comfortable. One guest from California commented, "How very civilized".
Two of the six guest rooms at the Inn have working fireplaces and each has a private bath, clock radio and cable television. All guest rooms are elegantly appointed in Victorian style, each is air-conditioned for summer comfort. The windows have wooden shutterers and lace curtains. In total the inn has 7 fireplaces and 9 baths. There are 3,000 square feet on each floor of the 3 story Victorian Inn.
The Victorian Inn Bed & Breakfast is a sheltered harbor of gracious hospitality...and luxury, and courtesy...where the hours stand still with a golden glow. The gentle aroma of breakfast revives fond memories of another place and time.
It's like visiting your favorite aunt's house...
We're old fashioned here.
We cherish Old Times, Old Manners, and Old Friends.
