We stayed in this Bed and Breakfast in October 07. The Mansion is large, very clean, and comfortable. It is located on the outskirts of Burlington, which makes walking into town a little difficult, but parking is ample and free in some spots. We stayed in the Tower Room, which likely has the best view of Lake Champlain, and has a private bath located across the hall. I believe every other room has an in-room bathroom. The Innkeepers are friendly, and make an attempt to chat with each guest at breakfast. It is the largest Inn in Burlington, and also priced slightly high compared to some of the others. For us, the expense would not allow a prolonged stay, but would definately recommend trying the Willard St. Inn for at least one night. Although pleasant, Burlington may not offer enough attractions to keep your interest more than a couple of days anyway. It is a college town, and often the night life consists of locals who are questionably welcoming. Overall, this is a well kept, professional, large B and B located in a relatively pleasant college town. I'd give it a B.
