Superlative experience and service !
May 12, 2013 by: FrankDancingFeet from Gaithersburg, Maryland
Wow ! This was our 1st experience in a B&B which our kids booked. For our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We cannot tell you what a great, phenomenal outing it was. This 1-acre architectural marvel is owned and run by an absolutely wonderful, caring and very knowledgeable inn-keeper. There are 3 porches, 1 hammock (that my wife was so surprised to see and use, she loved it so much), great manicured grounds, pond, out door chairs and table, pebble stone parking lot, very homely family and dining area, and on and on. You should sit on the front porch(es) and there is a great view of quant but wooden bridge over the pond which leads out to private and public boats and a great Crab restaurant. Next to that is a Marine musuem. And, the breakfast, with our other fellow-guests sitting next to us, was out of this world. The evening before Aida opened up vintage wine and gave us other delicious treats. Aida, is talkative and very friendly, and gave us all the details for hiking, walking, biking, visiting the church, what to do in town, 6 PM store shut-downs, and even gave us the names of other B&Bs and historical Inns ! We also saw the beautiful sun-set at Tilghman Island. If you like sweet, unspoilt weddings (one was being held, another was the next weekend), lots of local events, seafood,and walking around circa 1800's and circa 1700 homes and building, then This Is It ! Sorry, no Hyatts and Marriott's or McDonald restaurants ! We truly got a great 30th wedding Anniversary outing. Thanks, Aida.
Classy, Quiet and Comfortable

My wife and I have stayed at the Victoriana Inn a couple of times and both times Aida has proven her Inn to be just as the title of this review states, "Classy, Quiet and Comfortable. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. The Inn is set way back from the main street of St. Michael's (Talbot) keeping the noise level way down for guests. Even though we were staying there for a get-away trip, we had some computer work to do and Aida set us up with a lovely antique table and chair so we could work. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and manicured to perfection. Aida is gracious and really knows how to bring guests together yet maintain everybody's privacy. Aida's breakfasts are outstanding; they are uncomplicated, delicious, satisfying and very diverse. We plan to stay there again. We love it!!
Just What We Needed
Mar 15, 2013 by: Susan S from Baltimore, Maryland, United States
After the stress of caring for and losing my beloved elderly father, my husband and I were looking for a way to decompress and also to celebrate our 46th anniversary. We could not have chosen a better place than Aida's Victoriana Inn. We stayed from Sun. March 10 till Thurs. March 14th and left renewed and refreshed, well fed and well cared for by our warm and personable hostess Aida and her able assistant Ruth. We stayed in the Suite overlooking the harbor. Everything was immaculate when we arrived and stayed that way. The bed was very comfortable. We were near everything we wanted to see in town and took some scenic walks suggested by Aida. Breakfasts were nourishing, plentiful and very tasty and lots of snacks were available at all times. The get away at Aida's was just what we needed.
Aida's is nice

....and the woman herself is very social and hospitable. All the guests sit together for breakfast, and she breaks the ice and gets conversations going. Aida told us of her restaurant experience with her family while growing up. She knows what it takes to run the show. Food was very good. We booked on the spur of the moment, so our only choice was a small room, but the bathroom was large. I love staying in the old homes, so we don't mind creaky floors, and unusual layouts of the rooms, or a plumbing issue. I have all the comforts at home, so b&b's are an adventure. Good location, at the waterfront. We were there in Oct. '11 (not Jan. '12) and did a sailboat cruise with Selena II which was terrific... weather threatened but turned out ok and the sail was on.
Slowly falling apart

Wanted to like this place. Stayed based on other reviews. It needs a complete renovation. The whole place is dirty, the kitchen is disgusting, the breakfast was awful. Precooked sausage and doughy french toast with imitation maple syrup. Coffee was good. Sheets; polyester. All this from the most expensive lodging we found on a week long trip to the peninsula. So not worth the money.
