This Bed and Breakfast was our favorite place we stayed on our whole honeymoon. We felt at home and the hosts were so nice. They made the best breakfast! The pancakes were to die for. 😊 There was a lot of neat things to do and see in Shelburne. What a beautiful town!

My husband and I stayed at the Heart of the Village Inn a few weeks ago and found the place to be very clean and nice. The breakfast was good and I really liked the decorative way the fruit was presented each morning. It was a nice touch! One suggestion I might make is to have another table that can...

My husband and I came right here just two days after our wedding. The owners are very kind and friendly. Our room was well maintained, clean, and super comfortable. Although I was familiar with the area my husband was not, they had plenty of touristy type information in the front of the main inn for things to do. Shelburne is...

This was our third stay at the Heart of the Village Inn and a wonderful stay it was. We think we have found our favorite room. Now have to plan visits ahead to be sure to get our choice room. So peaceful, and comfortable! The breakfasts are amazing. Everything you could want for a quintessential Vermont weekend.

My 83 year old mother and I stayed 3 hours last Friday night when we found two roach looking bugs in our bed in two hours. We called the owner who didn't answer the phone. We emailed the owner who came and said, "There's nothing we can do. They don't bite". We left in the dark and the rain and...

Vermont is treasured for its natural beauty, and visitors come from afar to enjoy. Seasonal variations may cause outside creatures to seek warmth indoors. They can travel through windows, doors, on people's clothing and in their luggage, and by other means. Even the most diligent safeguards are sometimes breached by this force of nature. Our inn is located in an...

Overall, an excellent experience. Although small, our room (the last one left) was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. Loved the breakfast choices, and the food was excellent, though a bit rich for my taste. The innkeepers were gracious and welcoming, and the location extremely convenient. Beautiful gardens, too. Our room was at the back of the main building, and we were...

The Inn featured excellent breakfasts and comfortable rooms. Unfortunately, the Inn is located on a busy highway with a lot of traffic noise late into the night. Also, the floorboards squeak a lot. If you are a heavy sleeper, this is a great place to stay. However, if you are a light sleeper, better look elsewhere.

The house is located in the heart of Shelburne village, walking distance within a number of restaurants. Beautiful house, pretty room, brilliant hosts. We felt very welcome and it felt like we were visiting friends. Georgeous breakfast. If we are again in the area we would stop in the Heart of the Village Inn again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the historic village of Shelburne, the Heart of the Village Inn is the perfect place to stay in the Burlington area. We are conveniently located across the road from the Shelburne Museum, and surrounded by several great restaurants and art galleries, along with a quintessential Vermont country store and a local wine & coffee shop. We are a short drive away from Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Vineyards, Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, and the beaches of Lake Champlain. A ten-minute drive will get you to downtown Burlington, and within sight of some of the best ski mountains in New England. The freshly-redecorated Heart of the Village Inn features nine guest rooms, all with private baths, phones, WiFi, and A/C. Innkeepers Rose and Anatoly look forward to showering you with their hospitality. ... more   less

“If you have mobility problems, or travel with heavy suitcases, ask for a ground level room in the Carriage House. There are no elevators. The buildings are back from the street and there is little street noise.”
