The Willard Street Inn is a perfect B&B and fully justifies all the positive reviews.
The room was small but had everything you'd need - the cookies in the room every day were a nice touch and if you've eat those in your room there are always more available downstairs.
The breakfasts are different but very nice. Scones of some kind for "starters" followed by a choice of 3 "main" courses. Certainly plenty to keep one going to lunch time if not later!
The inn is in a pleasant residential location, about 10-15 minutes walk into town. There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Burlington and it's a very pleasant place to stroll around.
There is a path along the lake shore with swing seats - great to just watch the world go by. Make sure you watch the sun go down over the lake - great for photographs!
If you want to stay in Burlington I don't think anywhere will better the Willard Street Inn.
