We are relocating in VT from ohio and have made many trips for house hunting, each time staying at big hotels in Burlington. This time, I had to take a flash 24h trip to VT by myself to finalize decision on the house. Since one house i was looking at was in Shelburne village I decided to stay at the... More

We stayed at the Inn for 3 nights. Our room in the carriage house was beautiful. Pat and the rest of the staff were great. Our reason for going to the Inn was to visit the Shelburne Museum which is right down the street. We ate at 2 restaurants that were terrific the bearded frog and barkeepers. They are both... More

We arrived on a recent Thursday evening, and stayed until Monday morning. Overall, we had an excellent stay. The food was top notch, the bed was comfortable, and the entire place was very clean. The air conditioning in our room did seem a little undersized for our suite, but we were not uncomfortable. I would definitely stay here again -... More

We planned our 39th anniversary trip for Burlington and were unable to find a place to stay in Burlington but found the Inn in Shelburne. We knew it was close to Burlington so made our reservation. We got a personal email from Shona, the owner, with our confirmation and information we needed for check in/out, etc. The nightly rate is... More

Stayed in the Heart of the Village Inn on our bicycle tour through Vermont. Nice room, friendly staff. Rated it average, which isn't to suggest there was anything wrong with it - just not an above average property or truly excellent. We'd stay there again - didn't see anything else nearby that we would have preferred.

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary and it was perfect! We were in the carriage house and the room wad very clean and comfortable. There was an A/C unit in the room, which you don't expect from a Victorian building. The staff was very friendly and were all able to suggest things to do. The breakfast... More

On our way home from Montreal to Boston, we stopped in Shelburne to visit the museum. We stayed overnight in Heart of the Village, which was great. Our room in the carriage house was very comfortable, tastefully decorated, and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and directed us to a great place for dinner. Breakfast was good, although nothing... More

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

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the historic village of Shelburne, the Heart of the Village Inn is the perfect place to stay in the Burlington area. We are conveniently located across the road from the Shelburne Museum, and surrounded by several great restaurants and art galleries, along with a quintessential Vermont country store and a local wine & coffee shop. We are a short-bike-ride away from Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Vineyards, Vermont Teddy Bear, and the beaches of Lake Champlain. A ten-minute drive will get you to downtown Burlington, and within sight of some of the best ski mountains in New England. The freshly-redecorated Heart of the Village Inn features nine guest rooms, all with private baths, phones, WiFi, and A/C. Innkeepers Shona Mossey and Zoe Bishop look forward to showering you with their hospitality. ... more   less
