The reasons to stay here are the ideal location and reasonable rates. The home is very conveniently located in the center of town. You can easily walk to the riverfront area, bike path, Church Street shops & restaurants, movie theater...etc. There is free parking on premises. I'd describe the stay itself as comparable to visiting at your great aunts and... More

I stayed at Sunset House Bed and Breakfast as part of a poetry holiday. I travelled from Melb Australia. I was so impressed with this cosy B and B and particular the hospitality of Nancy and Paul the owners. It is in a brilliant location in the beautiful Burlington and was close to down town, cycle and car hire. Also... More

We changed plans at the last minute and decided to stay right in Burlington. Checked a few hotels and found them very expensive. The Sunset House is a PERFECT location and reasonably priced. Plus easy parking in back. Right between Church St (pedestrian market area) and the waterfront. Nancy and Paul were very friendly though we didn't see them too... More

Comfy rental with all the comforts of home and within walking distance of downtown, Church St., waterfront and more. Owners have created a great little gem in a city with lots to do and see. Period touches in the house add to the charm. Nicely appointed kitchen and laundry. Tasteful decor. Good for couples or families.

My friend and I went to Burlington to do a craft beer tour, and managed to get a room at the Sunset House for the evenings of Oct 1st and 2nd. We were in the Train Room - 2 single beds, small and cozy, and with a train motif. Nancy was great when we arrived, very friendly and full of... More

My husband & I spent our 30th anniversary in Burlington,VT on Lake Champlain! We found this jewel of a place to stay that is so close to all our favorite places to visit in this great town. The innkeepers, Paul & Nancy, were friendly, and inviting! Nancy has a great sense of humor.....we also got to meet a few guests... More

Sunset House was my first Bed and Breakfast visit. I loved it! Nancy and Paul, the innkeeper, is friendly, sincere, and accommodating. The location of the Sunset B&B is perfect and affordable! Sunset felt just like home, the place is comfortable and SPOTLESS! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. It's walking distances from all the great shops (Art... More

Last weekend, I was lucky enough to get away with some friends for a few days and one of them found Sunset House a few days before we'd planned to leave. There was a festival in town so we were worried we wouldn't find a place to stay, but Nancy and Paul of Sunset House were wonderful enough to rent... More

Sunset House was historically a boarding house. Nancy, the innkeeper, is friendly and sincere and makes every effort to see that her guests are comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean, and shared spaces were assiduously maintained. Breakfast is simple, serve yourself continental. The inn is located very close to Church Street, which is the heart of Burlington's active restaurant and... More
