My girlfriend and I booked a weekend in Vermont and we decided to stay at 254 South Union Street.
Our experience was very much in line with the reviewer before us and almost mirrored it exactly.
The guest room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. We had our own private porch that had plenty of tree cover .
The room has a gas fireplace, which we didn't use because it was warm, but I am sure this is a great feature for people staying there during the winter.
The fridge is small but was more than enough for us and Cindy, the owner, stocks it with all kinds of good stuff. She even dropped off a carafe of coffee and the newspaper for us in the morning and left it outside our door.
The television has tons of channels and features HBO and Showtime. Most guests probably don't watch a ton of television but it's little stuff like this that makes it better than average.
The bathroom was very nice and all the linens, robes and toiletries were pretty upscale and were more than I would ever expect at a B&B. She even left us fresh flowers from her garden in the room.
Overall, just a great place to stay. It was comfortable, private and in a great neighborhood. The walk to downtown Burlington was 2 blocks up and 2 blocks over. A nice walk and pretty short.
Cindy recommended "Magnolia" for breakfast and we're very glad she did as it was one of the highlights of the weekend.
