This was my first time staying in a bed and breakfast, and what a great experience. I would definitely stay here again. The inn is run by a husband and wife, who are very welcoming and accommodating. They are filled with knowledge about the area, and provide a lot of great tips about sightseeing, restaurants, bike routes, breweries and more....

My wife and I enjoyed two nights in the Van Vliet room which is upstairs at the front of the house. Despite facing the street we found it quiet, comfortable and spacious. The house is beautiful and is nicely appointed (not overly done like so many B&Bs). Rose and Anatoly were fantastic hosts and served a wonderful breakfast each day....

Our daughter, who lives near the inn, booked it for us. Our room was on the second floor in the former carriage house of this vintage Victorian, just to the rear of the main inn building. The room, like all of our experience, was all that we could have hoped for. The decor, bedding, bed and bath all have a...

The Inn was a perfect location for seeing Shelburne museum and other sights in south burlington. The price seemed at first a little high, but after comparing to other inns and hotels it was reasonable. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hosts are great people and the breakfast was excellent. We had a room facing the busy street,...

We had so much fun. The owners were outstanding and the breakfast was delicious. The rooms were very clean. We felt so welcomed. I can't wait to go back again! There is also so much to do around the inn.

When making plans to bring our daughter to UVM, I looked around at the usual suspects of hotels and found myself less than excited about the prospect of another stay at these locations. On a whim, I decided to try this highly rated B&B. My family was skeptical of this choice since they were accustomed to the standard hotel. Upon...

Lovely, quiet clean room, walking distance to the Museum, shopping, village green. Breakfast was great with fresh fruit and prepared to order. Hosts were accommodating and unobtrusive, and so helpful and reachable prior to my stay.

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.

“We were upstairs at the end of the hall in the main house. We had lots of privacy but were close to those amazing breakfasts!”

“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.”
 of 5 bubbles MargaretK4, 30 Nov 2016 | Read review
“If you are concerned about space I think that the rooms in the carriage house are larger.”
