We loved our stay at this bed and breakfast located on the Main Street of Sherburne Village. The hosts were helpful with excellent dinner suggestions, breakfasts were a gourmet treat each morning. We were able to also enjoy a fun farmer's market just a few steps away. Our room was cozy and comfortable with a modern bathroom which made it...

We made pretty spontaneous plans for a weekend getaway and were readily and warmly welcomed. We even got in past the late check-in and were able to get into the inn and our room with no troubles. The room was lovely and it it was a quiet, cozy, restful stay.

The owners were very welcoming and extremely friendly. The room I had was nicely decorated but not exceptional. The breakfasts were cooked to order and were outstanding (they were "free"). According to the written rules and policies, it appeared that guests are expected to make their beds(!) daily rather than staff doing so -- being charged nearly $800 for 3...

Dear Margaret K - Thank you for your very nice review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Since most of our guests, like you, are extremely neat, we limit housekeeping to straightening out the room as needed. You visited during a high demand holiday weekend in one of our best rooms.

The heart of the village inn was a wonderful place for a weekend getaway. The hosts were warm, welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the area and had great recommendations. The rooms were cozy and charming and everything we needed was always accessible. This will be a place we come back to for years to come!

Our hosts were very friendly and inviting making us feel at home. The woodwork and furnishings were beautiful and well kept. The room that we were in was small and didn't have much moving about space but it was very clean and there were lovely touches such as fresh chocolates and was surprisingly quiet. The breakfast was homemade and bountiful...

A pleasant place to stay in an adorable northern Vermont town. Innkeepers were helpful about dining ideas and local attractions. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I would stay here again when visiting the area.

Would come back again next year but cannot sleep on the beds. I had back surgery and the beds were way tooooooooooo soft. We stayed two nights but got no sleep. Again, not their fault, it is just that I have to have a very firm mattress.

We are not frequent B&B travelers because we like more privacy and independence from others. This B&B had such great reviews that we gave it a try. The property was incredible. The hosts had good area recommendations.

We had a lovely stay. The hosts were friendly, outgoing, helpful, gracious and great cooks besides. The breakfast was exceptionally good. They directed us to some of the most worthwhile places to visit. We loved the old historic house. It had been modified to be very comfortable with modern conveniences. We would highly recommend it.

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 drive away from Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Vineyards, Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, 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.

“We were upstairs at the end of the hall in the main house. We had lots of privacy but were close to those amazing breakfasts!”

“If you have mobility problems, or travel with heavy suitcases, ask for a ground level room in the Carriage House. There are no elevators. The buildings are back from the street and there is little street noise.”
