Hello Daniel, Thank you for your kind review! We're so glad you've opted to stay with us three times now and can always appreciate when our guests try out different rooms—or stay true to their favorites! On the rare occasion we are indeed able to check guests in early, we do our very best to accommodate those special requests! Otherwise, we're a small staff working hard throughout the day to have all the rooms ready for arriving guests by 3pm. We sincerely thank you for understanding that and look forward to seeing you again next time! Warm regards, Nicole Christopher Experience Curator & Guest Services Manager

We had a great stay at the Willard Street Inn in Burlington VT. Our room was beautiful as are all the common rooms in the Inn. The sitting area and gas stove in our room was so cozy and comfortable that we hardly wanted to leave the room! The Inn keepers, Kate and Larry, were

Hi there, Thank you for your interest in staying with us! First, we want to let you know mid May is a busy time for Burlington and the Inn, as Champlain College and UVM graduation weekends are always the 2nd and 3rd weekends in May. As the weather is warming up around this time of year, May is a great time for local hikes, brewery hopping, and enjoying the Burlington Bike Path along Lake Champlain. There is also always great downtown shopping, day trips to surrounding charming towns like Waterbury, Montpelier, and Stowe, local vineyards, tours, and even boat cruises on Lake Champlain. To guarantee a reservation, we require a deposit equal to the entire cost of a 1-night stay, or 50% if the reservation is for 2 nights or more. Most of the year, this deposit is refundable less a 10% cancellation fee when cancelled 14 or more days in advance. For reservations on graduation weekends, we require 30 full days notice for any refund. When cancellations are made with less than the required notice, guests are responsible for the full cost of the reservation, unless the room is re-booked for the nights of the original reservation. I hope this answers your question! Our policies are also available on our website. All the best, Nicole Christopher Experience Curator & Guest Services Manager
