My girlfriend and I have stayed with Sunset many times. Paul and Nancy are very sweet and kind and they only house "responsible" guests. Recently I stayed there with my father and chose Sunset not only because of our great past experiences but because it was centrally located- nearly everything you would want to do in Burlington is walkable- fine dining, the Lake, music, theater etc. There are surprisingly very few lodging options directly in downtown Burlington: two typical and often overpriced chain hotels (which do afford, for some rooms a nice view of the lake) and a few more expensive B and B's. But Sunset house delivers - it's always clean, the prices are extremely reasonable and they will gladly respond to your needs.
The breakfast part is simple- juice, yogurt,cereal- not a sit down hot breakfast but honestly there are so many great places to eat within walking distance, we were never in need. It was nice to start the morning with a banana and coffee, but just around the corner in a converted garage is August Harvest- YUM!
The rooms are pleasantly furnished, some are small and a few are more than ample. No TV's which is actually nice. There is a den/living area on the first floor with games, the newspaper, puzzles and a large screen TV if you need it but again, there is so much to see and do in Burlington, it was just nice to come "home" at the end of the day to a clean and comfy bed!
All rooms are on one floor ( 2nd) and there are two shared bathrooms which again, lends itself to the great value. The bathrooms are kept clean. (hint- best to bring your own preferred soap and shampoo)
Again, you won't find a better value or nicer folks in such a great location. Book early because there aren't many rooms and there are a lot of return customers! Thank you Paul and Nancy!
