I only have great things to say about the Whitcomb House B&B. We had a fun-filled, personable and truly enjoyable time here. Marie is really sweet and made our visit very memorable! This is one place worth staying at during a visit to Burlington. While it's a short drive from the downtown core, it's a great scenic drive and not... More

A truly outstanding 5 night stay in this B&B. Warm and cozy room with all the amenities. The owner, Marie, is a friendly, hospitable and gracious host. She made her home feel like our home. Her culiary expertise offered us the most scrumptious breakfasts with all home baked breads and every evening she left us a homemade pie by to... More

Recently stayed at the Whitcomb Inn. It is an old house situated right off a main thoroughfare. So, if you think because you are in the country you will have a quiet night sleep, forget about it! The Inn is so very close to the road that the noise just reverberates in the room. The rooms are nicely decorated with... More

Staying at the Whitcomb Inn is just wonderful. The house is beautiful and Marie's small touches make all the difference. She is so exceptionally welcoming and spoiling, it was the best stay of our entire trip. With freshly baked pie on our return every evening and fantastic breakfasts we were spoilt rotten and couldn't bare to leave as our trip... More

The Whitcomb House is a delightful bed and breakfast in the country but with quick access to all that is offered in the Burlington area. From the big red barn across the road to the chocolates on the night table you are in for a grand experience. AND that is before you think about Marie's evening slice of pie and... More

The rooms are beautifully decorated. We couldn't wait for breakfast every morning. Marie is a super cook, always using the freshest fruits and vegetables. Her just picked corn pancakes... More

We weren't even out of the truck and we were greeted so warmly. Our queen room was beautifully appointed and had all the charms of a Vermont B&B. Our private bath was completely modernized. We were in town for a wedding and had a few hours to rest. Marie gave us some drinks and showed us the pool. The pool... More

I had to be in VT on business and decided to stay at the Whitcomb House based on other reviews. I am happy with my decision! Marie was fantastic. She is a bundle of joy with a terrific warm personality. How could you not love spending time with her and the cutest dog ever Whitty! I missed meeting Dave. The... More

Marie and Dave were so accommodating, as though we were family. We were researching our family who were originally lived in this area and they were genuinely helpful in our search. Marie makes the areas best pie! This experience was just what my family needed!
