I have no affiliations with this hotel other than a very satisfied customer. We stayed here the last 2 nights of our early summer trip to New England. This is a very charming and well restored Victorian B&B. This place has been recently renovated and it's obvious by the amount of incredible detail that Shona and her innkeepers have put a lot of work and TLC to it. We stayed at the annex adjacent to the main building in the family suite. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and well equipped with a phone and a flat screen TV (my kids loved that!) There is a water dispenser and tea just right outside of it, so you can always bring the fresh baked cookies that are available in the main house straight to your room! The breakfast is truly delicious and Misty, the evening caretaker, is a great cook. Our family is vegan and they made us a full breakfast including an unbelievable vegan french toast, peach smoothie, vanilla muffins, oh my, my kids just LOVED the VIP treatment. Shona, the proprietor, baked us vegan cookies to welcome us and send us home with more for our trip home. After all of this, they even gave us comp tickets to the Shelbourne museum across the street. This place is very convenient to the incredible museum, which you must visit if you're there, it's a great place for families. There are a lot of restaurants and supermarkets around but it's only a 7-mile drive to downtown Burlington. So, if you're headed this way and want to have a home away from home, don't bother looking anywhere else, you must stay at the Heart of the Village Inn! Thank you Shona, Jessica, Simon, and Misty for a making our stay an unforgettable one!
