A beautiful 1848 country farmhouse that sits on 250+ acres of pristine meadows with stunning views of both Mt. Mansfield and Camel's Hump. Stroll down to the beach along the river with a beach chair or picnic; take a dip in the inground pool or sit on one of our two porches with a slice of homemade pie made daily and in the dining room each evening.

We loved staying at the Whitcomb House. Marie and Dave were great hosts, and Dave gave us a tour of the barn across the street. There was to be a wedding there that day and the barn was all decorated for it. There is also a nice living room to sit in and read.

Marie was so welcoming, and makes a great strawberry pie & country breakfast. The house was very comfortable and charming. Marie gave us a tour of the barn too. Beautiful setting and great hospitality. Hope to be back!

Our host, Marie, ensured a wonderful stay ... Provided good and hearty breakfasts, great counsel on places to visit while in the area and a very comfortably appointed room ... My friend from UK agrees ... We'd definitely stay here again ... An easy drive to both downtown Burlington and to the mountains. Had there been some snow to enjoy, it would have been perfect!

This was my wife and I's first B&B. We aren't always comfortable talking to strangers but we felt right at home! The location is great, as we were able to spend a night out in both Waterbury and Burlington; it's a fairly easy drive to both. The room on the first floor was pretty big and cozy and the bathroom was nice. I was worried about noise from the road because I'm a picky sleeper, but I didn't even notice it at all. The breakfast was really good, and there was plenty to eat. The next time we return to Burlington, we'll definitely stay here again.

I had my wedding at the barn and it was beautiful, but I would advise anyone looking to book it to make a contract with the owners, we found out after the fact things that they should have been upfront about. Think about EVERYTHING you will want from them and sign a contract upfront. That being said for the price (which ended up being much more than expected) it did offer the most than other barns around and my special day was beautiful.
