“Perfect weekend / Great owners and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

You made our daughter's UVM graduation weekend/family gathering so perfect. We used all the beautifully decorated rooms in the house and the carriage barn. The warm hospitality extended to friends and family throughout our four day stay was fantastic; service was exceptional. You made us feel so comfortable and welcome that we were calling it "home". Breakfast and afternoon cookies were scrumptious. Conversation and help from owners and staff-OUTSTANDING ! Highly recommended.

I took my mother here for a combination Mother's Day/Birthday treat - the staff bent over backwards to make our stay special! We found a big plate of gluten-free cookies waiting for us on our arrival and a beautiful vase of fresh flowers for my mom...The whole place is clean and tastefully decorated and the food is delicious! The only problem - and I'm sure this will be addressed with the ongoing renovations - is the traffic noise, which make it difficult for a light sleeper. I would highly recommend The Heart of the Village Inn and am looking forward to going back with my husband!

Thank you for the kind words Julie! We are happy to make guests experiences as wonderful as possible. Unfortunately the Main house is close to the road, so you'll find that the rooms in the Carriage Barn are quieter, usually this noise can be offset with the air conditioner but I think you caught us before they were needed.

Charming location and staff knew their trail(mix). Full of maps so you did not have to ask. If you did ask, you received excellent behind the scenes tips. Ditto local restaurant reviews. Let us keep our bags stashed after checkout so we did not have to drag them around before the airport run. Almost forgot the great tea & treats, extra blankies, robes. Will stay again next year.

Room Tip: Our son loved the big carriage door in the room off our main one. So cute even a skateboarding teen...

We found the Inn at "Vermont Bed and Breakfasts" because B&Bs are our favorite places to stay. We have stayed in many throughout New England and especially in Vermont and this is by far our favorite! We have two sons at the University of Vermont so we have lots of opportunity to be in the area and now that we have found The Heart of the Village Inn, we visit even more frequently! In December we took over the entire main house (5 bedrooms) for our son's graduation - it was a great experience! The house was beautifully decorated for the holidays - we were able to use the entire first floor to relax and hang out and they truly made a spectacular breakfast - including a very special omellette for the graduate! The inn and the innkeepers helped to make his graduation even more special. Thank you!

Room Tip: The Webb Room in the carriage house is comfortable with a two person fantastic whirlpool bath!

Love the place! We stayed in the Barstow room, which had an adjoining room for my younger daughter to sleep in. The bed in the Barstow was awesome. I think they used a TempurPedic topper. Great night sleep. Room was very quaint, clean and charming. Breakfast the next day was good. Loved the cookies on offer in the lobby.

Will not hesitate to stay here again the next time I am in Shelburne.

Room Tip: Loved Barstow.

The accommodations at the Inn were superb...each room has its own distinct personality and I am sure that any room would result in a most pleasurable experience for the traveler. The food and service were excellent and the staff both friendly and engaging, which added a great deal to our experience. At the time of our visit, my significant other encountered a very difficult back problem. The Innkeeper (Shona) stepped in immediately in the very nicest way possible, contacting a friend who was a chiropractor and getting us an appointment early the next morning of our stay. As if that were not enough, she extended our checkout time into the wee hours of the afternoon, so that my significant other could rest while I continued my business in the area. She sent us on our way home with a lovely bag of fresh baked cookies late in the afternoon. It would be impossible to say enough good things regarding our visit to the Inn in this short space. It was in my view an unparalleled experience and I would recommend a stay at this wonderful village inn to anyone visiting the Greater Burlington area

We spent two pleasant days here, enjoying good breakfasts, a quiet room and good service. Not your usual B&B with lots of knickknacks and potpourri, just the amenities to make us comfortable.
