This was my family's first visit to Shelburne and one we will remember fondly for years to come. We found the inn to be everything that we had imagined--quaint, comfy, and clean. Somehow everything beautiful looks that much more so when surrounded by the rich colors of autumn leaves and the inn was no exception. For those interested in touring... More

Me and my husband stayed here for our first anniversary and it was perfect! Our room was great and clean and the breakfast was delicious every morning. The location was also great, right down the road from Fiddleback Brewery and the Shelburne Vineyards. Also it was walking distance from the Bearded Frog.The staff was helpful in recommending stuff for us... More

Heart of the village exceeded my expectations as a first-time bed and breakfast-er. The historic home is beautiful. The innkeepers and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the amenities ( fresh baked cookies, wonderful breakfast, hot tea at all times, etc etc) were welcome and the location was perfect as we wanted to visit the Shelburne museum.

Stayed here as part of a bicycle tour. Pleasant country inn. Our group took over the place. The renovated rooms in the carriage house were lovely. The ones in the main house felt a bit like staying at grandma's. Common room was quite pleasant and the setting of a riveting Scrabble tournament. Breakfast was delicious. If you like B+Bs, you'd...

Thank you for leaving a review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and had a chance to make use of our common areas. The Main House retains it's original blueprint so the rooms are a bit cozier than those in the Carriage Barn, but they also showcase all the Victorian accents that make this historical building so...

We opted for a room in the converted carriage house, which was very accommodating--even had its own sitting room. The room was well-appointed and comfortable with lots of nice, welcoming touches--it even had horse-nibbled window frames--charming. One of the innkeepers checked us in and made us feel right at home. She offered their book of area restaurant menus, which was... More

This was a favorite place of ours as we traveled New England for 2 weeks. We stayed in the Van Vliet room and found the amenities to be satisfactory. We love historic old places anyway! One thing we missed was having an ironing board/iron but we didn't take the time to ask, either. There are plenty of restaurants to walk... More

We were greeted warmly along with a plate of fresh cookies. Due to availability we were upgraded which was much appreciated. The location is convenient and comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and plentiful.

An excellent last night on the road. This was our last stop on our motorcycle trip and a very welcomed one. The staff was friendly, very helpful, pleasant, and unobtrusive. The rooms were comfortable and pleasantly decorated (look for the hidden pewter knick-knack). The food was good, including the chocolate chip cookies. The location was excellent. We look forward to... More

We stayed there last year, and it was a great disappointment. We were in the Webb suite, supposedly one of the nicer rooms. The wicker furniture was shabby and uncomfortable, as was the bed. When I placed a dirty towel on the floor to be replaced, the dirty one was taken away and no replacement the next day. The first... More
