We recently spent 3 nights in the Van Ness room at the Lang House. It's a third floor room which we chose knowing we'd have to walk the stairs (no elevator) as we were enchanted by the lake-view offered. The view didn't disappoint and it was nice having the extra window alcove to sit in. The bed and room were very comfortable...the decor I think needed a little help...the wood furniture felt a little more worn then rustic...the water pressure in the shower a little lower than I'd have liked.
The real star of the B&B is the breakfast and the staff. Everyone we encountered over our three nights was super-sweet and friendly...from check in to serving staff at breakfast. The meals were great...very good coffee...tea and coffee always available...juices and prepared to order meals - you get to choose between their sweet or savory option...both offer meat (though we're vegetarians...) and fruit as accompaniments. And every meal begins with a baked good started...we experienced popovers, muffins and scones while were there.
They also put out a freshly baked treat every night for you to have when you return to your room. The first night it was a maple sugar cookie. I will be dreaming about this cookie for many nights.
The location is okay. Burlington is not very large but this is just at the top edge of downtown (heading away from the lake.) The walk into town is easy...a little bit further to the lake front...all downhill...but on the way back it's up a steep hill so you may not like that. We enjoyed the exercise so this location didn't bother us at all.
Free parking on site is a plus.
Loved the fresh springwater water dispensers on every floor...always full day or night.
We'd be happy to stay here again.
