There is only one word to describe the Willard Street Inn: Perfect.  From check in to check out your stay will be as relaxing as easy as you can imagine.

This quaint inn was built in 1881 and it has maintained all of its Victorian charm and grandeur.  You will walk through the double front doors into the cherry paneled foyer and be awed by the grand staircase and elegant antique decor. Each of the fourteen guestrooms is uniquely decorated to preserve the historic charm whilst not compromising on modern comfort.  Each guest room has its own private bath, though not all are en-suite.   Aside from the cozy guest rooms you’ll also find the inn has several comfortable sitting areas, both inside and on the deck.

When you first check in to the inn you’ll receive a tour that will explain all of the amenities, of which there are many! A working kitchen, a mini fridge for guests, bottle openers and chillers to bring to your room, and much more.  You’ll also find an array of freshly backed cookies and hot coffee and tea.   In warmer months you’ll be free to explore the lawn and English gardens.  When you make it to your room you’ll find more freshly baked cookies and locally made chocolate!

Breakfast at this B&B is something not to be missed! You’ll start off with a selection of muffins and scones that are to die for.  You’ll have several choices for breakfast, but the waffles might just be the best you’ve ever tasted! And the Eggs Benedict are divine.  Everything is served with a side of fresh fruit, grown in the inn’s garden, as well as a selection of juices and tea and coffee.

The location cannot be beat! It’s a very quick walk to Church Street, and downtown Burlington.  In your room you’ll find restaurant guides, menus, and plenty of maps that will allow you to plan your tour of downtown Burlington, most of which can be reached on foot from your hotel!

If you fancy a day in the gardens are a beautiful spot to sit and relax with your thoughts or your journal.  The solarium makes for an excellent reading spot.  And you’ll have no trouble finding a way to relax in your luxurious accommodations!
