Physical comfort, ambiance and hospitality of the owners is probably unmatched. All this in one of the most livable cities we've ever been in. First class breakfast overlooking the well-manicured grounds was a real treat. Will definitely return to enjoy all that Burlington has to offer.

Excellent location, top notch hospitality, a must for anyone wanting to have excellent accommodations in downtown Burlington. Wasn't able to have the extraordinary breakfast, but did receive granola and yogurt. Also have 24 access to coffee and tea, and some nightly cookies.

My wife and I enjoyed a stay at the Willard St. Inn and the property confirmed the choice based on our internet search. Such a lovely and grand old home has become a wonderful B&B.

Wonderful hosts, surroundings, and breakfast. The garden area is beautiful and are the insides of the house and rooms. First class accommodations all the way. I was impressed with the wood furniture and fixtures, which added a nice touch to the overall experience. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Brent, It was wonderful meeting you and having you stay with us, if only for one night. Hopefully you'll be back soon for a more leisurely visit.

We had a wonderful stay. It began with home baked Snicker-doodles and ended with an amazing breakfast fit for a King or Queen. Huge plus was the walking distance to all of Burlngton's sites as well as the huge soaking tub. Thank you and we will be back soon.

Our stay at the Inn, we loved everything about it. First, it was so quiet at night, we felt like we were the only guests. Our room, no traffic noise, was the Adirondack facing the gardens and the mountains/lake in the back, so gorgeous. Loved the heavily carpeted stairs, the old-fashioned ambiance, fresh cookies in the room and downstairs along...

I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast, but this place was amazing. It was spacious enough to give everyone the feeling of being at home. The historic house was beautiful and the breakfasts even better. They really pay attention to detail and the rooms were immaculate. It is located just a few blocks from the Church Street Market...

We had an ideal B&B experience at the Willard Street Inn for a weekend stay. The property and the Victorian mansion are beautiful. The staff truly made this a great experience with small touches such as cookies in the room each day and friendly breakfast. Although very tall people may find Alexandria's Alcove challenging due to the sloped ceilings, the...
