Princess Victoria Suite

$255.00 / $299.00 night

Princess Victoria offers a three-room suite experience fit for a queen and her king on a romantic Vermont weekend getaway.

This room is arguably the best value in luxury accommodation in southern Vermont! Yankee Magazine rated Inn Victoria as "Best Romantic B&B" for several good reasons; the experience our guests enjoy from this room is just one of the reasons. Occupying most of the whole third floor and measuring over 600 sq ft, the room boasts bright sunshine through all four vantage points of the building. Many of our guests enjoy looking through the large windows at Chester's Currier & Ives scene of a small village green in the center of town. The room is filled with beautiful antiques, featuring an imposing antique queen-sized bed in front of a working gas fireplace. The separate sitting room has a comfortable sofa, desk and chair, 42" flat-screen TV, DVD player, Playstation 2 with a selection of games, refrigerator, iPhone radio/clock system, and seasonal air conditioning. The focus of the oversized bathroom is the corner Aerofeel™ double whirlpool spa tub, fitted with chromatherapy mood lighting for your pleasure and relaxation. This is an air-jet style massage experience for two, unlike any other. A large separate shower and granite-topped vanity make this the most indulgent of bathrooms.

You will find that this romantic room is an ideal alternative to the rooms found in conventional Vermont hotels.

The king sleigh bed is dressed with luxurious silky linens atop of a feather mattress topper, triple sheets, and lots of pillows.

A morning soak in the hot tub before breakfast is always a perfect way to start the day, quietly listening to the morning birds sing at dawn. In perfect weather, guests may prefer breakfast served on the deck or perhaps even a special dinner dish prepared especially for two. Cable television is available on the 32" flat-screen TV and, of course, one may choose to watch a movie from our extensive selection of current DVDs. Wi-Fi is easily accessible.

Princess Alice

$235.00 / $275.00 night

Princess Alice is loved by every lady who walks into the room.

An amazing, king-size sleigh bed is positioned directly in front of the fireplace for comfort and dressed with luxurious silky linens atop of a feather mattress topper, triple sheets, and lots of pillows. The room is large and bright as the sun enters the windows on two sides of the inn. This spacious room and warm atmosphere is tempting for sure, but second only to the enormous Jacuzzi that awaits in the large and bright bathroom. The bath is positioned to receive the first morning sun through to late afternoon; a room few are willing to leave behind without first indulging themselves in long soaks and a bottle of wine.

When Yankee Magazine rated Inn Victoria as "Best Romantic B&B," this was surely one of the rooms that set the bar. Chester's historic green is viewed right outside one of the bedroom windows and is like looking at a Currier & Ives scene of a small village green in the center of town. Princess Alice is filled with beautiful antiques and a large fireplace. Over the mantle sits a 32" flat-screen TV with cable. Other modern conveniences include a DVD player, Wi-Fi, iPhone radio/clock system, refrigerator, and seasonal air conditioning. In addition to the spacious bath's Jacuzzi is a large shower, elegant granite-topped vanity, and fluffy robes and towels.

Prince Alfred

$195.00 / $220.00 night

Prince Alfred is a handsomely appointed, large room with an air of Victorian spaciousness. The room has a warmth to it that makes one feel distant from the fast pace of our modern world. This space truly feels like a retreat or escape; it is a very popular room.

Prince Alfred boasts a warm, red carpet throughout, except where the large, white, sheep-skin rug lays directly in front of the fireplace.  The room may easily sleep four people.  There are two beds in the room, one queen bed is supported by a heavy antique mahogany frame, dressed in a white laced top over triple sheets on a feather comforter. The bed sits across from the fireplace.

The second bed is a full size with antique spindle frame of over 100 years.  The bedding, just like all of our beds, is designed to give you the finest sleeping experience with white laced top over triple sheets on a feather comforter.

Directly above the mantle hangs a very large antique mirror, adding to the warmth and elegance of the room. Several antiques add to the flavor of the atmosphere, as do the antique lace window treatments. Although this a romantic room to be sure, the modern conveniences of a 32" flat-screen TV, cable, DVD player, Wi-Fi, iPhone radio/clock system, refrigerator, and seasonal air conditioning will all be appreciated. This newly refurbished bath boats a slipper soaking tub with antique oak vanity with an above counter basin, antique mirror and a huge shower.

The room is well appointed with antique furniture; the queen-sized bed frame is a unique and marvelously carved piece. Everything about this room is old world beauty. The bath has the original, one-person ceramic tub with a modern rain deluge overhead shower. Although an economical room for many discerning travelers, Prince Leopold provides the same modern conveniences each of the other rooms offer: 32" flat-screen TV and DVD player, Wi-Fi, iPhone radio/clock system, seasonal air conditioning, and our meticulous sleep system consisting of luxurious silky linens on a feather mattress topper, triple sheets, and lots of pillows.
