My husband and i just stayed in Room #10 (Suite Larkin) for 2 nights and I highly recommend this inn. Once we parked our car, we didn't get in it again for almost 48 hours! The inn is conveniently located to downtown Burlington and the waterfront. We strolled down to the Church Street Marketplace area for dinner each night (Leunigs one night and the Farm House the next). We rented bikes at Local Motion on the bike path which we highly recommend. during the four hour rental, we biked most of the bike path, heading out to the causeway, then completed most of the "City Path" which surprisingly and pleasantly took us through the woods (in Ethan Allen Park) and through beautiful fields before coming into the UVM campus. We locked them up downtown and had a wonderful lunch of beer and pizza at American Flatbread. The inn was extremely quiet and our room was HUGE. The breakfasts each morning were filling and yummy - there was a choice of three dishes each morning. This is not a B&B where you ever see the owners (at least we didn't), but that didn't detract from our stay.
