Welcome to St. Cloud!
Footes' Victorian Oaks Bed and Breakfast was built in 1891 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. We became Quality Assured members of the Minnesota B&B Guild in 1998. The City of St. Cloud honored us with their Century Homes plaque in 1999; and in 2003, we were incorporated into the city's Historic District.
Our B&B is centrally located within walking distance of St. Cloud State University, the Civic Center, the Lake George recreation area, parks, trails, downtown businesses and a variety of restaurants. Highway 23 is easily accessible and provides a direct route to St. Benedict's College, St. John's University and shopping centers in east and west St. Cloud.
The original floor plan of the house remains unchanged since the home was built in the 19th century. Candlelight breakfast is served using china, crystal and silver in the formal bay window dining room. Guests have access to two full bathrooms and one half-bath. A slipper-style clawfoot tub and high-tank commode highlight the main Victorian Oaks bathroom. All rooms have wi-fi, phone, TV, DVD player, air conditioning and coffee maker.
