“Perfect stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Hero's Welcome is a "have to" stop if you're in the area! There's something for everyone at this roadside shop. Great food, incredible gifts, and just about anything you could want or need. Lots of fun just wandering through the shop looking at all the "different" things, practical and whimsical. Don't miss Hero's Welcome!

“Beware of bicycle season”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

HW has some of the best sandwiches in the Islands. But they have limited tables because of septic limits. Increasingly during bicycle season cyclists will occupy tables for extended periods, chatting and relaxing long after they have finished eating even while others are standing waiting for a free table. We are giving up on HW for lunch during late summer and fall. It's too bad the store loses business because others lack courtesy.

“Cute shop, great donuts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Good place to pick up a newspaper, donut and coffee in the morning, then enjoy them at the picnic tables across the street by the lake.

“OMG Did you see that over there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

What a fun general store. They carry everything from kitchen gadgets to clothes to games to food not to mention antiques and outdoor sports stuff. We spent about an hour wandering through this fun little gem on North Hero. If you are on the Lake Champlain Islands it is worth the drive or bike ride over-especially if it is a cool dreary day!
