My wife and I planned a weekend in Vermont for our anniversary and we wanted something quaint and intimate that was close to the local attractions. We found the Heart of the Village Inn online and it had great reviews. Upon arrival, Anatoly and Rose greeted us with welcome drinks while they gave us a tour of the grounds. They...

Let me tell you about a magical place called the Heart of the Village Inn where you enter as a friend and you leave as family. The moment we entered the main house we were greeted with smiles and offered refreshments. Anatoly and Rose made us feel right at home! We chatted for a long time before we were shown...

We've been there twice now and have loved our stay both times. The inn is located in Shelburne which is just south of Burlington making it perfectly located to go to that college town or finding a great place to hike and enjoy nature. The inn itself is lovely, the breakfasts were deliciously sinful, the rooms clean and charming. The...

This was my second visit to Heart of the Village and, once again, it was wonderful! We stayed in the Bostwick room and it was so cozy and quiet. Dark wood gave the room a cabin feel but the high windows made waking up on a chilly Vermont morning delightful. We thought there wouldn't be much to do in Vermont...

Hands down the best experience I have ever had at a B&B. Rose and Anatoly are out standing hosts. Beautiful rooms, great breakfast you will not leave hungry. You are family when you stay here not just a guest. The wife and I will be returning to stay for many years.

Heart of the Village Inn was the perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway. Special touches like a complimentary box of truffles in our room when we checked in and fresh flowers on our breakfast table evidenced the host's attention to detail and elegant taste. The room was lovely, very clean, and well-appointed. Breakfasts were a real treat, and the...

Had a wonderful stay here! Great accommodations: We stayed in the carriage house, the room was spacious, clean and well-maintained. Delicious breakfast: a good variety on the menu, all prepared for you and lovely table set when you walk into the dining room. Kind innkeepers: welcoming and helpful, can genuinely tell they value their guests.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the historic village of Shelburne, the Heart of the Village Inn is the perfect place to stay in the Burlington area. We are conveniently located across the road from the Shelburne Museum, and surrounded by several great restaurants and art galleries, along with a quintessential Vermont country store and a local wine & coffee shop. We are a short drive away from Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Vineyards, Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, and the beaches of Lake Champlain. A ten-minute drive will get you to downtown Burlington, and within sight of some of the best ski mountains in New England.
