We have just returned from a 2-night stay in the second floor suite at 254 South Union. We loved Burlington and would recommend it as a day- or week-long visit to anyone. This guesthouse has an even better location than the slightly more expensive Lang and Willard houses. The setup and decor was perfect for us -- a family of...

A beautiful big old house with character, clean rooms, and a friendly host. Parking in the back of the house. We didn't need our car once we parked there; we were able to walk (10 - 15 minutes) to all things downtown Burlington. Loved the snacks (yogurt, granola bars, fruit, cheese, cookies, etc.) and coffee/tea provided 24 hours just outside...

I was looking for a B&B in Burlington, and honestly didn't realize a guest house is slightly different, but was happy with this selection. 254 S. Union is conveniently situated between downtown and campus. The Guest Room is actually 2 rooms, it was like having a small apartment in a lovely old house. Although breakfast is not served as it...

We only stayed one night at the South Union Street Guest House, but we're already making plans to go back over Thanksgiving! It's a wonderful B&B with great character. The grounds are beautiful and highlighted by a magnificent copper beech tree which is believed to be as old or older than the house itself. Our room (Lakeside) was cozy, bright...

We stayed at 254 South Union for three nights and loved it. Our room was cozy (Lakeside room), but served its purpose of a place to sleep and relax when not out and about in Burlington. We actually liked the breakfast setup because we could help ourselves whenever we wanted, and not adhere to a certain time - and there...

Spent one night in the Master bedroom and had a lovely stay. The room was very comfortable and clean and quiet. Location is fantastic, a few blocks to Church street and a few blocks to the University. I enjoyed the simplicity of the yogurt and granola and fruit for breakfast, was a great start to our day.

We had a great time in Burlington this past weekend. The South Union Street Guest House is beautiful and the location was great. We didn't need our car the entire weekend.

I was having trouble finding a room in Burlington but I found this place on TripAdvisor. It was perfect for us. It is an easy walk to the downtown and lakefront but also close access to highways for getting around the area. The owner was very cordial and accommodating.
