About Sharon Mathiews

We have always enjoyed staying in the private bed and breakfast homes and wanted to offer our home town of Victoria this type of home for others to enjoy. It has been a dream of ours for many years to have this type of business to offer to others to relax and enjoy in. With this busy world today, it is good for everyone to just slow down and enjoy themselves and each other at some points in their lives. If its a romantic get away you need or just a peaceful place to relax, our B and B is the place for you!! We offer all the amenities of a fine hotel with the privacy of your own home away from home. If you live in Victoria or from out of town, it is perfect place to enjoy and relax for yourself or with each other!!! It is our goal to make that happen!!!

Sharon Mathiews purchased this house in 2012

Why Sharon Mathiews chose Victoria

We chose this home because we saw the potential for the happiness it could bring to others. We had a vision and it turned out exactly the way we thought it would. It was build in 1914 and is a completely refurbished home of a bygone era. It has a few dents and dings that makes you wonder of all the life that has been cherished in the home. Original hard wood floors hide all the secret happenings of the past underneath. You feel a sense of comfort and peace as soon as you enter the home. I knew it was special from the start!!! You will too!!! Its a home you won't want to leave!!!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home when we saw it was located on a peaceful corner in historic downtown Victoria. It had the relaxing inviting look of a old home with still so much to offer. It needed lots of work done to it and we knew we just could not let die the life of this home that still had so much to give!! We knew it would be the perfect place for a peaceful relaxing stay. We added a 7 foot fence for extra privacy even though it is not close to other homes. Beautiful old trees and vines add shade and a special touch to the home. It is now alive again and ready to give someone that special feeling of happiness they so need!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A house has a life all of its own. It was conceived in the mind of a man or a woman and put on paper by an artisit. The artist shared the dream with the craftsman who pounded each nail and carressed each board. It was lived in by young and old and those just starting out. Its walls have heard laughter, arguements, the cries of babies and the sounds of broken hearts. A house remembers all the triumphs and tragedies, happy beginnings and bitter endings. It keeps all its secrets hidden under the floors or behind a door. Listen closely at night for that is the best time to hear the house tell of its life.

every detail considered

My only regret is that we did not stay long enough to take advantage of all of the wonderful detail. It was an unexpected spa treatment.

Thank you.

Our First B&B experience!

  • 4 of 5

We've never done the B&B experience in our 11 years of marriage. We had children and boom, never got to the B&B because our closest relatives were in Victoria while we are in Houston. We come down to Victoria a dozen or so time a year to stay at my wife's grandmother's house. We were able to drop the kids off at grandma's and get away but not feel so bad because we are so close.

When we got there the first thing you notice is just how quiet and peaceful the B&B feels. It's an old house that got a face lift, but that doesn't bother you at all. My wife and I got to kick back and relax and celebrate our anniversary properly! We got to invest in our marriage.

All of the amenities of the B&B (hot tub, garden tub, shower, and etc.) are great but the feeling that you are secluded in this little neighborhood and can unwind is great!

We were able to use the bikes there and bike around the local park.

I would definitely recommend this place!

Only B&B/lodging in Victoria for me!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our two night stay at Timeless Serenity B&B! Making the short notice reservation and arrival/departure was a dream! The refurbished house and grounds are awesome and we really enjoyed the privacy and romantic setting - I was very impressed with all the small touches and ease of "living" there. The location is excellent - easy to walk/bike/drive to restaurants and activities. We will return to visit Victoria again and this will be the only place I will stay! They have customers for life!
