Willard Street Inn - Bed & Breakfast Mansion
Ranked #2 of 11 Burlington B&B and Inns

Reviewed 8 April 2014

My wife and I stayed here shortly after we were married, and we have stayed in plenty of other places around the world since. I often think of the Willard Street Inn with great fondness and one of our very favorite places.

It's a classy place; quaint just like it should be, but not too small for it to be a weird B&B. The Lobby is very inviting... there was coffee and cookies available here and there when we popped down. The staff was very nice. Our room was huge and classic. A real time piece. The location is great to walk downtown too.

I'm a sucker for a good free breakfast, and this was top notch. There were 3 different choices that change often (if not every day) and they were all wonderful. The breakfast room overlooks a wonderful little garden as well.

I cannot say enough!

Three of us (couple and adult child) stayed at the Willard Street Inn in October 2013. Great breakfast, chocolates, cookies. Walking distance to downtown if the weather's good and you're walkers, short drive if not. We had a comfortable, beautiful room suitable for two plus one.

There is little I can add to the wonderful accolades previously posted. Everything about this B&B is top notch. From the moment you open the door to this beautiful mansion, you feel welcomed and pampered. The red rose, chocolates, and homemade cookies in our room were the beginning of a memorable Valentine’s getaway. The inn is charming and meticulously clean, and the breakfasts in the solarium par none. I feel the only additional constructive comments I can share are to describe the Suite Larkin. The bedroom is very large with an electric fireplace and good sized closet. The king-size bed is comfortable and the linens of high quality, but we do agree that the duvet is a bit hefty. A flat screen TV atop another electric fireplace is located in the adjoining sitting room, which has a daybed and handy marble-topped cabinet. We traveled with friends who stayed next door in the Periwinkle Room, so our sitting room served as a pre-evening entertaining spot. Since there is a lace curtain and not a door separating the bedroom from the sitting room, privacy could be an issue if there is a third guest using the suite. Also, you must pass through the sitting area from the bedroom to use the bathroom. The shower stall is on the small side, which might be a consideration for some, but the bathroom is spacious and well supplied. There also is a deep soaking tub for those who are agile enough to climb in and out. We did have a little electrical hiccup, but Larry was on the problem immediately and, although not necessary, discounted our room. As any homeowner can attest to, glitches will happen, even when maintained as excellently as this inn is. Our next stay will be more than just a weekend and during warmer weather, so we can walk to Church Street and tour the surrounding historic area. Our hardest decision will be whether to try one of the other beautifully appointed rooms or return to Suite Larkin.

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend at this beautiful inn. As soon as we pulled up to the inn I knew we were at the perfect place in Vermont. From the moment you walk in the front door you feel welcome. The staff is wonderful and were there for anything you needed. The breakfast is absolutely amazing and the cookies in your room and around the inn are to die for!

We stayed in the wood house suite #8 which was the perfect room for a romantic weekend. The bed was very comfortable, the room was very clean, the shower is huge, and the gas fireplace was perfect for the winter weather! We also had a partial view of the lake from our room which was beautiful at sunset.

We did walk to church street from the hotel and it was about a 20 minute walk. It was of course cold but the walk was very doable and would be a nice walk in other seasons.

I 100% recommend this inn!

This family run Inn makes you feel right at home. The breakfast was better than most restaurants and the homemade cookies are to die for. The rooms were cute and the house in general was just so cozy that you didn't want to leave. I can't wait to stay here again if I ever find myself in Burlington!

We have been coming to the Willard Street Inn for about 5 years now. Always warmly greeted and rooms are cheery and comfortable. Great breakfasts, the eggs any way our favorite. I have stayed in Lindsay's Loft, one of the smaller rooms, as well several larger rooms. All comfortable. There is an eye for decorating that gives a homey feel. And that may be because the inn is a family run operation. It shows in the upkeep and concern for all guests. We will be back.

Stayed for three nights in cobblestones. Hotel itself is lovely. And staff were very accommodating. Location is a little way out of town but the walk uphill goes someway to work off the food consumed in town!!!
The reason for four stars instead of five is simply the bedding. There was several blankets and a duvet that I presume was for decoration. There was no thermostat in the room and on a cold night we needed to use the said duvet which felt like it was made from led! A small gripe but effected the quality of sleep!
Breakfast on all three mornings was delicious.
