... first people to arrive but by the time the tour left at 9:20, there were 8-10 in a group. Truly an American made company, they are eco conscious, philanthropic, and very community minded. They are supporters of fair trade as well. We watched tub after tub of Coffee Toffee running off the assembly line, and several times it seemed to look a bit like Lucy and Ethel in ...

Duxbury is a two building stop with the campground being run by the little general store. Rest and in the morning, we'll be ready to roll. A couple more stops in Vermont and on to New Hampshire.

Can't believe we're camping on the shores of Lake Champlain!!! We've had incredible experiences in this area of New York. This state continues to keep us on our toes!! We had an amazing hike through the Ausable Chasm where the river was rushing through a canyon of steep walls with incredible force (especially after several big storms the days before our visit.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Willard Street Inn Burlington
My husband and I toured Quebec, Vermont, and upstate New York, staying at 9 hotels/inns/B&Bs in 2.5 weeks. The Willard Street Inn was our final and BEST property. I booked it based soley on their website and TripAdvisor reviews (thanks!). It had everything we want in an inn: elegant, historic architecture; spacious rooms; delicious breakfast with a choice of menu; individual breakfast tables; kitchen available for guests (fridge, ice, etc.); all day cookies, lemonade, iced tea, and hot beverages; snack plate in room each evening; air conditioning; shower; helpful and inobtrusive staff. We even had a TV, telephone, and free HSI in our room. We travel very casually but did not feel out of place in this elegant inn. We stayed in the Rose Garden room. It faces the street and was a little noisy one evening, as we had unknowingly arrived during the first week of university and there are some student houses in the area. As with an inn typical of this period, there is no elevator but the staircase is beautiful so it made the luggage lug more pleasant. We were welcomed by Megan, our young but exceptional host who introduced us to the inn and our room. I initially found the breakfast "reservation" a little odd, but it actually workd out to be very heplful for us, as we knew there would be a table ready and we got individual attention each morning.
Very interesting hotel - each room is unique and full of character. There is an excellent garden to sit and relax - weather permitting.
Wonderful place to stay
I would highly recommend the Willard Street Inn. Everything about it is first class. The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished and the breakfasts are excellent. If you visit Burlington this is where you should stay.
We stayed at The Willard Street Inn two weeks ago. It was gorgeous both inside and out. The rooms are beautifully decorated with period furnishings. The beds were very comfortable; I was able to sleep as well as I do at home. There was a light coverlet on each bed, a down comforter and plenty of pillows. The bath had the usual tiny bottles of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and soap, plus a little pot of lip balm, a nice touch. I was also happy to see they include a hair dryer, no need to ask for one. There was plenty of hot water with amazing water pressure for being on the third floor of a victorian! Another bonus was wireless internet access at no extra charge!
Not what it seems
Beautiful building but very overstated. The rooms are beaten up and breakfast is nice but nothing great. The website does a great job, but its not the same when you get there. The staff is extremely friendly however and tries to make up the inn's shortcomings.
Unfortunately we only stayed at this beautiful inn for one night. The staff is professional and curteous. The inn itself is elegant and warm. The grounds are gorgous. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. I have no complaints and would recommend this inn highly.
I am a former Willard Street resident, and current innkeeper in Florida, who couldn't wait to arrive in my old neighborhood. Every exchange with the new innkeepers at the Willard Street Inn was welcoming and encouraging that I COULD go home. I remembered the house as I child, and knew as soon as I dropped anchor I could redisover my old hometown by foot. The Inn's location is perfect, just far enough away from the bustle, but close enough to downtown.
Great place to stay
The Willard House is an excellent place to stay. The rooms are beautifully decorated in late victorian style but not overbearingly. Each room is different and the staff keeps the doors to the unrented rooms open so you can snoop as I did and pick out rooms for your next visit. Rooms are modern where it counts--bathroom, TV, AC --and very clean. Excellent breakfasts served in the sun room. Individual tables. Helpful staff. Inn is about a 15 minute walk from the center of Burlington in a residential area.
Good website accurately shows rooms.
The Willard Street Inn is a Burlington Delight
My wife and I stayed at the Inn in late June '04. What a beautiful property, both inside and outside. Most rooms have their own bath and are very comfortable and private. Don't stay on the street side as the truck traffic in the early morning will disturb you. Breakfast is one of the best meals you'll find anywhere and served in a wonderful sun-room overlooking the Inn's gardens. Don't hesitate to stay at the Willard Street Inn.
Lovely historic accommodations.
The Willard Street Inn is like staying in an elegant historic mansion, just blocks from Burlington's city center. Interiors are elegantly decorated in fine antiques and we loved the big roomy sun room overlooking perfect gardens.
Breakfast was a gastromic delight and a great way to start our day. The staff was quite helpful, recommending and making dinner reservations for us and also giving us ideas about day trips in that part of Vermont.
Highly recommended for those who love fine inns.
