This Old Victorian House - Take a Victorian House Tour

We hope you'll come see us in person soon, but until then, why not enjoy an online tour of our lovingly restored Queen Anne-style Victorian house?

Old House Lovers' Dream Come True

Bonnie and Bill Maher had always dreamed of owning an old house. They loved touring historic homes when they travelled, and hated seeing old houses being demolished or "re-muddled" instead of restored.

Their love of old houses led to buying a big old Victorian of their own--though they never imagined that they would someday open its doors as a bed and breakfast!

Victorian History

A House Full of History

Before the house was purchased by the Mahers, it had been in the same family, the Jensens, for three generations. That means there are lots of memories and information about the house's past that have been shared by Jensen family members, as well as friends and former employees of the family.

History of A Victorian Home

Would you like to know more about the house's history? The details are on these pages:

The J.L.Jensen House - Timeline
Here is a timeline of events related to this house, from 1858-1990.

Historical Article - A House Full of History
The home of Dreams of Yesteryear Bed and Breakfast, the J.L. Jensen House, was featured first in the Stevens Point Journal's Reach section, and later in a Victorian Homes Magazine article. This is an updated version of that article by its author, Dreams owner Bonnie Maher.

The Stevens Point legal system has had friends at the Jensen house from the beginning.

Antique and reproduction furniture-lovers paradise!

Victorian Porches and Balcony
Besides giving the house true Victorian style, they are your first welcome to the B&B.

Victorian Dream Gardens
The perfect place to dream, these old-fashioned gardens make you forget time has gone by.

Stairs and Hallways
Guests often comment on how no corner was missed in decorating this home.  Even the stairs and hallways are filled with Victorian beauty.

From Pantry to Kitchen
It's hard to believe the busy kitchen at Dreams was once no more than a butler's pantry, while the food was actually prepared in the basement.
