No a/c in summer and no curtains to block the light. I never thought I'd live to see the day she I had to sleep on the couch at a B&B, but the room was so hot I awoke panicked thinking it was on fire. I til the owner this and she literally shrugged. She asked if I like dogs,... More

I'm truly sorry that Jasper was uncomfortable here at Elliot House. I always do my best to accommodate individual needs. Jasper's brother, who slept in the same room, was very happy with the accommodation. And my sweet Labrador retriever was leashed and never closer than 50 feet from Jasper. More

My husband and I chose Elliot House for its rural location and proximity to Shelburne and Burlington. We were more than pleased. Anne is a perfect hostess and a very good cook. Her breakfast omelets are top notch. She also had yummy cookies every afternoon. We stayed in the Quaint room which was clean and beautifully decorated. We slept with... More

We really enjoyed our stay this past week at Elliot House. Our room was very nice and the view from the very large bathroom was spectacular. I believe our room was called "Quaint". (It was at the top of the stairs.) Breakfast both morning was delicious and made to order. One thing I particularly loved was the comfortable living room... More

Elliot House and its host Anne are really wonderful! They exceeded our expectations. Anne was very welcoming and friendly and made us feel at home. Our room, called Quaint, was clean and luxurious in its comfort; it had a large bathroom with shower and plenty of hot water. It is quiet and we slept very well in it. The downstairs... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Elliot House. The views from our room (Quaint) were amazing! Each of our windows had a marvelous mountain vista. Anne is a very gracious host and the house is lovely. Fantastic breakfast. Convenient location if you want to go to the Shelburne Museum, which is a can't miss. Would love to return.

My husband and I were visiting friends in Vermont for a few days and after reading many reviews chose the Elliot House in Shelburne. I cannot say enough about Anne. She made us feel welcome from our very first introduction. The room we stayed in, Cozy, definitely lived up to its name. We had a beautiful view of the grounds,... More

This is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. The owner is the nicest person; extremely welcoming and accommodating. We virtually had the run of the house incl library, TV room, kitchen and swimming pool etc. Delightful breakfast and lots of useful advice re cycling routes. We highly recommend it.

We only stayed one night at Elliot House, but enjoyed the home and Innkeeper. The location was great. Don't miss the Shelburne Museum and the Teddy Bear Factory. The breakfast was yummy! The Innkeeper, Anne, also had useful information on local restaurants.

We were surprised to see a For Sale sign when we drove up and the owner was very subdued, so we suspected that there have recently been some major changes. We stayed in the "Cozy" room and would not choose that room again as it only had one small window, facing west, and the room got very hot. There was... More
