“Iowa Luxury Accommodations”

Just two blocks from the Mississippi River in Fort Madison, Iowa, the Victoria B&B Inn and Studios will accommodate your lodging needs. The rooms are filled with exquisite antiques, beautiful draperies, and period wall coverings. The Victoria is a combination of modern comforts and the warmth of a premier bed and breakfast inn. The Victoria was built circa 1850 by Dr. Edward Whinery, M.D. a noted physician and the first medical doctor at the Fort Madison Territorial Prison. Dr. Whinery was a noted researcher into the treatment of cholera, working in collaboration with a Dr. Townsend in the UK. The home has been restored by Dr. B. Marie Brady-Whitcanack, Ph.D. and her husband, Pharmacist, Lex Whitcanack. It reflects its original Georgian and Victorian architectural detail. The first hospital in Fort Madison is located near the Dr.'s home. This site is also said to have been included in the network of homes on the under-ground railroad of the Civil War. Seven Civil War Hospitals were located in the next town of Keokuk, Iowa. Behind the nearly 7,000 square foot home is a 2200 square foot carriage-barn that has been identified by the Iowa Barn Foundation as the oldest barn in the state of Iowa. The carriage-barn now houses the Carriage House Studio, an addition to the Gallery Studio located in the main house. The bedrooms include suites with king-sized, double and single beds. Both private and shared baths are available to guests.  The inn is decorated with an abundance of original artwork. Guests may elect to take private painting tutorial under the direction of the artist, Dr. B. Marie Brady-Whitcanack.
