Last weekend, I was lucky enough to get away with some friends for a few days and one of them found Sunset House a few days before we'd planned to leave. There was a festival in town so we were worried we wouldn't find a place to stay, but Nancy and Paul of Sunset House were wonderful enough to rent... More

Sunset House was historically a boarding house. Nancy, the innkeeper, is friendly and sincere and makes every effort to see that her guests are comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean, and shared spaces were assiduously maintained. Breakfast is simple, serve yourself continental. The inn is located very close to Church Street, which is the heart of Burlington's active restaurant and... More

Nancy kindly opened up early in the season for two last-minute, unprepared visitors to Burlington. The place was fantastic and the location couldn't be better. Most of all, it was the hospitality that sold me. Thanks so much!

Nancy and Paul provide a super clean, quiet place to stay in the heart of Burlington! Treated like family, we;ve returned numerous times and always had an enjoyable visit. A classic old house restored to modern requirements, we love the feel of the place and the easy access to the "help yourself" style breakfasts. Always a Pleasure!

Bed and breakfast's are what they are. You can't expect hotel like rooms or privacy. This was clean, which is always the first thing I care about. The location couldn't be better, within walking distance of all of the main shops and restaurants, pubs of Burlington. The host was very friendly and the continental breakfast was perfect. The rooms are... More

The owners are super friendly and warm. The house doesn't have private bathroom and we didn't know that when we booked. The breakfast is not what you usually expect at a bed and breakfast - just come get the cold cereal when you want. It is in a great location and close to the lake and downtown - easy to... More

My husband ad I came for three days over Memorial Day weekend. It rained the majority of the time. Nancy and Paul welcomed us and sat down with us in their living room sharing their amazing task of renovating such a historic place. They shared pictures of their grandchildren and asked to see pictures of my kids. Nancy was like... More

“Room 2 is on the street side and the traffic noise was considerable. An air conditioner and earplugs remedied the situation.”

“There are only four rooms in the house but our party took up two of them and both were great, so we can vouch for the Train Room and the Green Room, though I bet the other two were just as wonderful.”
