... 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 ...
... had many inns, small resorts, and snow equipment rentals. Many were closed for the season, ski lifts looked skeletal climbing up the mountain side and slopes were covered in green looking like recently mowed strips through the vast woods. Like most summer mountain towns, a rambling river follows you to where you are going, though at a somewhat lazy ...
... walkways on both side of the bridge so...we walked across to Vermont & visited Chimney Point. Our first visit into the state of Vermont!!! We walked back to New York to climb the lighthouse before we drove across the bridge to the charming little village of Vergenes! We parked the truck downtown & walked around before heading out to Button Bay ...
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.
Then yesterday we took a drive into the Adirondack mountains & rode our first gondola up the slope ...
We left Vermont at 1pm to begin our 7 week journey. Heading to New York City to stay with a dear friend Will Robb.
Will has Saturday planned out - highlight include: seeing Dinosaurs at The Natural History Museum and riding on the subway!

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Burlington Harbor
Great place, super location
I stayed at the new Courtyard Burlington Harbor, and it was really nice. The room was very comfortable and clean, and the bed was great. The hotel is very new, and the staff were all very pleasant and helpful. While staying there, I stayed two nights on business, and one on pleasure, and they were easily able to combine the stays so I wouldn't have to move rooms. Easy easy and surprisingly quick.
The location is great, only about 1 block from the lake. I'm sure the front of the hotel has gorgeous lake views, if you're above the 3rd floor (trees block it lower.) The breakfast was very good, but it's not free, so take note! The servers in the restaurant were pleasant too.
In the end, it's got the quality of a 4 star hotel, but is more reasonably priced. Definitely up-to-snuff with the nicest Courtyards, and gives many fancy hotels a run for their money!
Brand new, best location in Burlington, walk to everything..Views from the lakeview rooms are spectacular..Rooms are clean, spacious, etc. Very limited dining but plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Will be my first choice on next trip to Burlinton.
I've stayed at a couple Courtyards by Marriott in the past few years and have overall had really good experiences. They're obviously not super-luxury hotels but are very nice for a chain/business hotel. This was no exception. We had a really nice room overlooking the lake and could see the gorgeous sunset from the room. Everything was really fresh, clean and new - especially the bathroom. Also, had lots of space. The hotel is really close to the downtown/shoppping/dining area. We didn't do the breakfast, instead went to Penny Klues Cafe down the street - probably the best breakfast I've ever had! The city of Burlington was a really nice surprise, I wasn't expecting it to be so cute and full of great shops and restaurants. If you're touring the Northeast, this town is a must and the hotel is perfect. My only complaint is there aren't balconies or a patio off the bar - it would have been nice to sit outside and watch the sunset.
Wonderful new Burlington hotel option!
I grew up near Burlington. I return to Vermont to visit twice yearly to see family. The Radisson was the only hotel option. Wyndham bought it and now Hilton is rumored to take it over. It's old and tired. The Hilton better kick it up a notch..they have MAJOR competition now! The Courtyard was top notch from the second we walked in the door. Clean, modern and brand new with the most friendly staff, and GREAT location! I was impressed during my entire stay. I was upgraded to a suite, room 801. None of the king suites have a view though, I had a lovely view of Macy's parking garage. In the evening we had very expensive martinis in the lounge ($12.50 each). No munchie mix in the bar..just a limited bar menu. There is a fireplace in the lounge and a great view of Lake Champlain. I can't wait to go back this fall and relax in there. We missed breakfast in the restaurant since it closed at 10am...needs to alittle later. That was no problem as Church Street is a 10 minute walk away. I will definately stay here again. I hope the Courtyard will remain consistant and 1st class all the way. Great Job!
Perfect location, great new hotel
Brand new hotel - built in April 2007 I think. Everything is (obviously) new and clean. Fantastic location, close to waterfront and Church Street. Good service. Top notch Courtyard room with comfortable bed and large flat screen TV.
This is the nicest hotel in the Burlington area! The studio room had a beautiful decor and was perfectly clean. The lobby is very attractive with 2 separate seating areas, a bar, and a restaurant. The location is very close to the lake (just across the street) so has easy access to the ECHO center, the bike path and downtown Burlington. I can't wait to stay here again. AND the staff was welcoming and helpful!
Gave our room away
Made reservations for a harbor view room to see the fire works when we arrived someone had extended their stay, we were offerred another room at a discount but the point is I had reserved this room and had a confirmation. I have had to change rooms in the past if I had ocean front and others had reserved the rooms. I would call before arrival as they never notified us of the change. Poor public relations....will stay at the other harbor view hotel as I have in the past. They have rearranged rooms to accomodate
So-so don't waste your extra money
Paid $200 per night, and found that the view was nice, but the service was so-so. The room was so-so also. Had a walk out shower, but could only get a room with a king bed and a pull out. really just another room. The front desk told me they'd "try to scrounge up blankets and sheets" for the pull out, but didn't think that "they had any, and they are hard to find." Will not stay here again. Found cheaper hotels that had service with a smile. Burlington was okay too, but many wierdo's inre: lesbian, goth, and yes transvestites in their "Church street" area. Even got a comment about a police shirt I was wearing.
Really nice new hotel
We stayed one night overnight on the 8th day after the hotel opened. The room was spacious and the hotel was exceptionally quiet. Nice 32" LCD Tv with appx 40 channels to pick from. Spacious bathroom - our room has a nice glassed in shower but no tub. Not sure if all rooms are like that. The staff was extremely friendly and asked multiple times if we were enjoying our stay. Buffet breakfast with egg station cooked to order and waffle maker. $10 - not bad - dining room had beautiful view overlooking Lake Champlain. The hotel is only about a 3 minute walk to Church Street pedestrian mall. For $116 with AAA discount and room without a lake view, it was a great value in a great city. If you are going to visit UVM for any reason - like we did to see our daughter, it 's the tops for any place we've stayed at in the area.
Nice view, but if you want to meet the nastiest, most arrogant staff in VT, stay
THE ABSOLUTE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE (FRONT DESK) I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! And I was a flight attendant for two major airlines and have stayed in thousands of hotels. This was by far the absolute worst hotel experience I have ever had. Words cannot even describe just how rude, incompetent and confrontational the front desk staff were. If you want to have your lovely visit to Burlington end in tears (yours), then stay here. My husband and I stayed here while visiting our daughter at UVM. Never again. Stay far, far away. And also I will have sinus problems for a very long time due to their up-openable windows and disgusting recirculated air. Our noses, throats and eyes burned the whole time we were here. Checkout tomorrow morning! YAHOO! I CANNOT WAIT TO GET OUT OF THIS HOTEL! COUNTING THE MINUTES!
