Mini Getaway

4.0 on February 20, 2018

It was very cozy and the staff was very accommodating. The breakfast was good the one day we did have it but for a millennial it was inconvenient that the latest slot was 9:30. Its really close to town so everything is within reach. If you love a quiet time this would be great.


WILLARD STREET INN

3.8 on January 02, 2018

Our kids gave us a gift to come to the Willard Street Inn. The Inn is fabulous. The staff is more than friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was Martha's Memoir's, and thank goodness the Inn was as lovely as it was, so we didn't mind being stuck inside for most of the weekend. It was New Years Eve, and it was bitterly cold outside, so we chose to hunker inside for most of the weekend. The breakfast was fantastic. The location is great too very close to everything in Burlington. If it wasn't so cold, we would have loved to be able to walk just about anywhere. We had a great relaxing weekend and would definitely visit Willard Street again in the future.


What a beautiful experience

4.4 on December 12, 2017

To anyone looking for a relaxing, beautiful environment to stay at while visiting Burlington: you must consider the Willard Street inn. You're greeted with a smile and served as well as a 5 star hotel. The building is gorgeous, the rooms are even more. Depending on the price you pay, your room can either be big or bigger! The food is delicious, homemade and varied to meet multiple taste buds. My wife is intolerant to gluten, I am a voriacious carnivore and we both had a delicious breakfast in a beautiful marble floor solarium. What would anyone want more during their stay? A personalised touch: Fresh baked cookies and local cider are always present should we get hungry. (Coffee and tea were also always at our disposal.) The owner made a note to come meet us and entertained us with stories during our wonderful morning. Thank you

The location is excellent, The staff is friendly and is very good at making sure you are getting the best service with a smile. It’s a gem of a place so much charm and it’s very comfortable. The Innkeepers were always chatting with everyone like they were a big part of their family. Always asking if there was anything we needed. The Inn is very nice would highly reccommend and will go back. Delicous breakfast!!


Could not have asked for a better B&B experience!

We absolutely adored our stay at the Willard Street Inn! The owners and staff were welcoming and offered great recommendations for the area as well as a garden tour and tips. They have thought of everything you might need before you can think to need it, from guest refrigerators and wine openers to afternoon cookies in your room and the dining room, to comfy robes. The location is perfect for walking to town down tree-lined streets of gorgeous Victorian homes. Breakfast was an event every morning with a variety of delicious offerings in the beautiful and cozy solarium. We stayed in the Rose Garden room on the top floor, which had a newly-renovated bathroom with a rain shower head. It was very quiet and comfortable. Overall, we would highly recommend this inn to anyone looking to visit Burlington and the surrounding area. Such a lovely city with a fabulous food scene!

This b&b is a wonderful gem, the home is absolutely warm and beautiful. The owners and there staff were so nice and helpful with everything you need to make your stay a fabulous one. The home has 14 beautiful rooms and is very quaint and quiet. My husband and I felt right at home there like it was our own. You are also close to the wonderful downtown area of shopping and great restaurants. Lake Champlain is in walking distance and so gorgeous. We will make the Willard Street Inn our place to call home when we visit Burlington.


Champlaine Lookout room was perfect

4.8 on October 20, 2017

The Champlain Lookout was a beautiful spacious room with comfortable chairs to sit and read a book. Nice extra touches of luxurious bath robes, Coffee, Fruit and pastries available in the evening was great. We felt so at home here. The breakfast was excellent with a few choices not just a standard breakfast. I highly recommend The Willard Street in for a couples getaway.
