L’accueil, la beauté des lieux et le petit déjeuner plus que savoureux, ont rendu notre séjour mémorable.


Fantastic inn!!

This inn was as wonderful as the pictures show and even more. The breakfasts were scrumptious, leaving us not even wanting lunch!! Quiet location and we slept with the window open. Walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants!


Life of Luxury

While it was a bit pricier than I normally choose, it was the nicest place! The room was gorgeous, the gardens, the solarium, all set the scene for a relaxing day in Vermont, when we weren't out shopping and biking that is! They make your breakfast to order, and do have a vegan option of granola available. Couldn't have been a nicer stay!

Willard Street Inn best of its type in Burlington

4.8 on June 27, 2017

We have stayed in at least three other inns in Burlington and while they each had their charms, our favorite is now the Willard Street Inn. This Inn is perfect for a summer weekend and I'm sure just as good for the fall season. Rooms are VERY nice, quiet, and spotless. The Inn itself and the grounds are beautiful and historic and exactly what one wants in an Inn. Breakfasts were delicious and even a good value for our guest who joined us in the morning. The little treats like cookies and lemonade available after walking around Burlington all day were much appreciated. The hosts were available but never intrusive. If you can find an available room here, book it!


A taste of luxury

4.6 on June 19, 2017

The inn is lovely and the staff attentive. Each room is unique. I appreciated the comfortable chairs overlooking the garden and the garden itself. We were looking for a quiet place, within walking distance of Burlington's restaurants and Saturday's farmer's market and this filled the bill. Boardgames are in the cupboard and books on the shelves--including an aptly named "La Vie en Rose."


Perfect Piece of History on the Hill

4.6 on June 16, 2017

The owners have done an amazing job of maintaining this beautiful old mansion, complete with a lovely garden in the large backyard. Their staff do an exceptional job of making their guests feel very welcome and well taken care of. I would heartily recommend the Willard Street Inn to anyone visiting fun and funky Burlington.
