Absolutely amazing

5 on September 22, 2013

We stayed at this bed and breakfast two years ago and enjoyed it so much whenever we go away now we seek out cute B&Bs. Unfortunately, nothing has been quite like our experience here. The food was amazing, they made you feel at home, and it was professionally run. Best experience I have ever had at a B&B we can't wait to come back !


First time at a bed & breakfast

4.6 on June 11, 2012

We became comfortable so quickly because of Larry and Katie and the staff. Absolutely awesome building with its furnishing and decor. Breakfast was superb. Loved the homemade yogurt and granola. Sitting out back with a glass of wine, after a busy day of tourist stuff, before going to dinner was nice. Appreciated the grounds and gardens. Got some ideas for home. Carrie and the girl serving breakfast (excuse me for forgetting your name) were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed talking with Larry and Katie , the owners. So friendly. Extraordinary place, great experience. Would love to return. Stuff to do around Burlington is wonderful. Dan & Sue


What fun!

My husband and I spent last Easter weekend at this inn. We had a very enjoyable time. The entire inn was very well appointed, and we enjoyed our stay in the Champlain Lookout room. We especially enjoyed the views outside the window. The breakfasts were very tasty, and the solarium was a very bright and cheerful room in which to start each day. We look forward to our next stay!

Charming Inn and Staff who made us feel at home...

5 on April 14, 2012

My wife, son and I stayed at the Willard Street Inn this past weekend. The Inn itself is a meticulously refurbished and maintained Victorian house. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and well appointed. The breakfast was excellent. However, it was the Innkeepers, Larry and Katie Davis and their daughter Carrie, who made us feel welcome and at home. I can recommend the Willard Street Inn to anyone who is looking for charm, good value and that home away from home feel.


Surpassed my expectations

5 on April 06, 2011

My husband and I stayed for four nights in late March. The room was wonderfully decorated and exceptionally clean. The breakfast was the best meal of the day. The staff seemed to be local college students who were very professional, helpful, and charming. We felt welcomed, relaxed, and cared for. The house itself is gorgeous but we felt at home.


Beautiful Inn

We'll Be Back!

4.6 on November 08, 2008

We visited the Inn after reviewing its website and called in our reservation. We were welcomed and given the VIP tour upon our arrival. This is a stately old home in a very nice section of Burlington, converted to a beautifully furnished and meticulously maintained inn. Each guest room is unique and ours was beautifully furnished. The common areas are many, comfortable and well equipped with books and games. The included breakfast was excellent and the afternoon chocolate chip cookies in the room are a nice touch. The family that owns and runs the inn lives on the property and has done a great job of making this a must-return place. Yeah, we'll be back.
