If visiting a bed and breakfast all decorated for a Victorian Christmas gets you in the holiday mood, this is your place! Every inch of the inn is bedecked in holiday finery and Judy is happy to point out touches you might have missed. We stumbled upon The Old Victorian Inn while dodging the snow on a trip from Michigan to Virginia and we're so glad we did. The food was plentiful, the surroundings gorgeous and Judy was very gracious. The room was large and quite well priced, less than the chain places in Beckley and so much more beautiful. The trains going by do seem a bit loud but they did not disturb our sleep and we enjoyed the quaint shops and cute train station. This place is a real holiday find!

Warm, inviting, atmosphere. Beautiful historical inn. Comfortable rooms full of period antiques. Amazing breakfast, so delish....eggs, apple bread, homemade preserves, bacon, French toast, fresh fruit, coffee, tea and orange juice! Judy is a warm and friendly innkeeper that will treat you like family. Town is quaint and Alderson's Art Deco store is a must-see! And be sure to check out the art galleries. A great place to get away from it all. Listen to the trains go by or take a walk by the river. Be sure to ask about why everyone seems to have a lion statue in their yard. Great story!

If you love trains and Victorian homes this is the B&B for you. Doris is an expert on Alderson history and the breakfast can't be beat. The rooms are large and conformable. It is like traveling back to the turn of the century. The Amtrac Station is just across the street and it also serves as a museum.

Great breakfast! Scrambled eggs, potatos, lots of bacon, pancakes and toast, all with lots of crushed red chile. Oh wait I brought that last ingredient. We don't leave New Mexico without it! Big clean rooms and lots of bathrooms! Judy you are funny and blunt! We enjoyed hearing about your Husband the former Mayor, Martha Stewart, and Women taking the train to turn themselves in at the Alderson Pen. Be careful painting the house!

We enjoyed staying at your bed and breakfast. The home is beautiful and furnished beautifully with all the wonderful furniture, pictures, dishes, and lovely decorations. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. This is a wonderful place to stay while on the road. Your breakfast is delicious with so much variety and more than a visitor can eat. We appreciated the snacks for the road.
Thank you for your assistance locating our package. You are a charming hostess and I am amazed at what you have created in that wonderful old Victorian home.
Our appreciation. If we ever travel that way again we will definitely return.
All our best,
