Howard Street Guest House
Ranked #7 of 11 Burlington B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 May 2012

The Howard Street Guest House is a SUPER place to stay when in Burlington. It is unique as far as B&B's go because it is not a house, but a converted two-story, detached garage. Each floor is a separate room that has been configured and furnished into a spacious, comfortable and well appointed place to stay. It is located in the middle of a quiet residential neighborhood, within a five minute drive of downtown Burlington and the Lake Champlain shoreline and under ten minutes to Interstate 89. The proprietor, Andrea Gray, is friendly, accessible and certainly enjoys running this wonderful establishment. The Howard Street Guest House is absolutely worth considering when visiting Burlington.

Room Tip: I looked at the upstairs room and also liked it, especially the skylights over the "living room...

I stayed here while attending a friend's wedding in town, Unfortunately, my wife couldn't join me because of a travel delay, but I enjoyed the room and the town enough that I'm determined to take her back there sometime soon. The room was really open and comfortable, complete with a mini kitchen and fresh coffee. It was also just a short drive from downtown. I highly recommend it!

What an incredible surprise when we opened up the door to this converted garage! The great room included a fully equipped kitchenette, comfortable living room with television and beautiful bedroom with a queen-sized bed. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and included a shower. Andrea, the delightful hostess, was there to greet us and explained the features of the room. She was helpful with suggestions for our trip and directions to the various sites. The guest house is walking distance to downtown and convenient to many other attractions. We stayed on the bottom floor and there is an additional apartment to rent on the second floor (which according to our neighbours was just as impressive). This was a terrific place to stay - spacious, comfortable and convenient with its much used kitchenette. A family could use the couch and a sofa-bed to easily sleep 5 people in total. I highly recommend this guest house!

This is one of my favorite places *ever* to stay. Spacious, comfortable, cheerful, attractive, good location. Loved having the kitchenette, which was stocked with cereal, milk and juice. It was nice to be in a residential neighborhood, yet a short walk to the lake. We enjoyed talking to the Andrea, our host, a lot (and we are not normally very chatty). We got in on short notice, too, so don't hesitate to try even though there are only two units. We were in the lower unit but I'm sure the upper unit is great too. Wifi worked perfectly.

We stayed in the downstairs room of the Howard St Guesthouse the last weekend of July 2011. The colors in the room, described by the owner as funky, were just beautiful! From the painted birds on top of the closet to all the bright colors, it was welcoming and warm. Also, this studio is spotlessly clean. The shower has plenty of hot water and water pressure. This plus a comfortable bed and kitchenette rounds out such a better experience than an impersonal hotel room with a bed and a bathroom...Close to downtown, either a quick 10 min walk or 3 minute drive - you're that close to the waterfront and downtown. Don't forget to bring your bicycle (like I did) as Burlington is a very bike friendly town...The next time we're in the area, we plan on staying at the Howard Street Guesthouse.

We have stayed here twice now. The first time on the lower level and we loved it so much we just had to go back again to try the upper level. Both times were perfect. As soon as you walk in the door you feel immediately comfortable and at home. The location to downtown is easily walkable. The rooms are spacious, nicely furnished, and peacefully quite. It is the best place to stay for a Burlington Getaway.
