“Cheerful and Charming”
Reviewed June 2, 2006

We visited Burlington over Thanksgiving last year and stayed at the delightful Howard Street Guest House. Unlike a traditional B&B, you are responsible for your own breakfast and have total privacy (though proprietress Andrea is quite friendly and helpful and assisted us in selecting a place to have Thanksgiving dinner – Pauline’s Restaurant was excellent) – and that suited us just fine. The guest house is a studio apartment on the top floor of a carriage house. It is spacious and beautifully decorated, with a light and cheery motif. The polished wood floors, skylights, colorful area rugs and upbeat dishes and accessories made it feel like a very special retreat. It’s on a quiet residential street that is a very short drive from downtown. Burlington, besides being a lively and lovely destination on its own, is also an excellent base for exploring – we got to the Vermont Teddy Bear Company, Ben & Jerry’s, Cabot Cheese Factory, Cold Hollow Cider Mill, Magic Hat Brewery. There is so much to do in the Burlington area, and I can’t imagine a more pleasant place to stay.

We stayed in this B & B while visiting Burlinton for the marathon. Very private with many special details. Off the beaten path but well worth it!

We stayed here for 3 nights and were more than happy with Howard Street Guest House. It's a lovely bright, airy self-contained apartment that's a pleasure to wake up in. You make your own breakfast and there's no servicing of the apartment each day, but that was fine with us. Andrea was very welcoming and helpful in advising us on things to do, and our 3 children fell in love with Chuckie the dog! It's also a good central location for exploring the area. One review I read said "if you can get it, book it" and I wouldn't disagree with that.

This accommodation is immaculate, spacious, private and very homely.
(The photos on the website are a good indication of what the room is like.) We had a very relaxing stay here in this well-kept residential area. Personally I found the walk to downtown Burlington a little too far, especially in the dark at night. However, it can be done. Only drawback - coffee and milk are provided, but you will need to buy your own breakfast. Highly recommended.
