Bill and Sue were wonderful hosts and made us feel at home. Great breakfast. We stayed for two nights.The second morning that we were there, bacon wrapped asparagus was added to the dish. It was delicious. We went to Shelburne Farms and drove around the countryside to see the farmland and attended a family reunion. Great place to stay!

We stayed for two days in Emerson's guesthouse, a lovely, in-a-good-way-old-fashioned but well appointed B&B in Vergennes. The house is charming and the owners are very friendly, helpful and enjoy interacting with their guests. Emerson's is located right in the middle of a small New England town close to the shores of Lake Champlain, central enough for many attractions like... More

I was back at the Emerson House for a weekend of bike riding with friends in the Addison County. We stayed again ( my 3rd time) at Sue and Bill' Emerson Guest House. More than anything, it is the owners hospitality that made our stay memorable. Rooms are just nice, breakfasts are gorgeous. Lovely backyard where we can rest after... More

I've stayed several times now at the Emerson House. It is my Vermont getaway spot of choice! I love coming here!! Bill and Sue are such accommodating and entertaining hosts and I love the feel of the place. There is the most fabulous French bakery just down the street and the community is so friendly and close knit! This last... More

My wife and I stayed at the Emerson Guest House this fall. We had a wonderful stay. Bill and Sue are excellent hosts and Vergennes is a great little "city". Breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended

My husband and I stayed at the Emerson House this past winter. I suppose I should have read the posted reviews before staying there. It is still not well kept either inside or out. I would use the words worn, shabby and cluttered to describe this great old house. I'm not sure if all the extension cords qualify the building... More

chester1912, Owner at Emerson Guest House, responded to this review

Sue and I just wanted to respond to this review. We are truly sorry that Terry had a disappointing stay with us this past winter. It is indeed true that we have had a lot of remodelling and necessary re-construction this past year. Ironically, half of the outside house has been painstakingly replaced with brand new hemlock siding to replace... More

The hosts, Sue and Bill, make you feel at home in this beautiful Victorian style house. The rooms are very comfortable, the breakfasts are wonderful and ideal for cyclists. Vergennes is well located for exploring the Addison County by bike. What's more, Bill is also a cyclist. I will cerainly make a stay at the Emerson House a tradition.

We (me and my spouse) use to go there very often since 2006 after having tried many other B&B in Vermont. Indeed we already made a reservation for the end of May coming with a bunch of friends. Bill & Sue the owner are very welcoming and the rooms are always clean and comfortable since we've been there the 4... More

When we pulled up and saw the plastic tarp over the exterior wall by the door I had two thoughts. One of which was, "Great, and why am I paying full price?". However, my general experience was a good one.The house was having its exterior replaced and repainted. The work being done on the beautiful old home is restoration, not... More

This is a very friendly Bed and Breakfast in a lovely old house that is well maintained and has very friendly hosts. The breakfast was excellent, and the location is right in town, so you can walk to all the shops, restaurants and attractions in town.
