On a recent five-day visit with family two towns over, I stayed at Heart of the Village Inn for the first time. Despite all the excellent reviews, this delightful Inn exceeded expectations. My ground-floor Carriage House room was spacious, with lovely linens and a very comfortable bed. Excellent bathroom, great storage, and thoughtful details throughout. Everything immaculately clean. I put the room refrigerator to good use. (Did you know that Vermont drugstores sell craft beer?) Within easy walking distance you'll find a drug store (!), book store, coffee/wine shop (it transitions during the day), two restaurants, and the Vermont Country Store. I've left the best for last: the breakfasts are all that. Five days only took me through half the menu -- all delicious, and great prep for whatever adventures await. Rose and Anatoly have created an excellent B and B experience and I look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: The Carriage House rooms may be a bit quieter. But the Vermont "rush-hour" is so mild I wouldn't hesitate to stay in the Main House.

Had the best experience at our stay at Heart of the Village with our Inn keepers Anatoly and Rose being so wonderful and gracious hosts. Our stay in the Carriage house, the Webb Room, was spacious and the Jacuzzi was nice touch. The breakfast was as beautiful as it was delicious and was the perfect sendoff to the day’s adventures. . The town was charming and the restaurants and atmosphere were fantastic. Will definitely be back and highly recommend this inn if you looking to get away for a romantic stay.

We decided to stay overnight at a nearby town instead of having the hassle of driving home great distances on New Year's eve after dinner. Our friends suggested that both of us couples stay at the Heart of the Village Inn and we were extremely pleased with their suggestion. We discovered the charms of staying in a converted Carriage House - beautifully appointed (comfortable bed with lots of pillows; soft robes, etc.) and very warm (despite the fact that the temps outside were at 0). Our hosts were gracious and welcoming (offering us wine when we arrived and bubbly at breakfast) and showed us a clever way for us to enter/exit our room using our cell phones. They shared with us the history of the Historical home as well as their own backgrounds and topped off our stay with a deliciously filling home-cooked breakfast of gourmet quality. They also kindly looked for and found my missing earring and contacted me after I left showing they really take care of their guests. My only minor criticism was the paucity of TV channels though the set worked fine and computer access excellent. Overall it was a lovely way to welcome in the New Year 2018!

Dear Yumina2, thank you for your delightful review! We are so happy that you found us and enjoyed your Stay-cation with friends at our B&B, known for its delightfully comfortable rooms and mouthwatering gourmet breakfasts. Not that we care for arbitrary criticism, but we now do offer a 100+ cable channel selection. We want our guests to soak in as much Shelburne experience as possible instead of watching Vermont TV ;)

We decided to give ourselves a treat without travel for New Year's Eve and chose to stay at the Heart of the Village Inn with some friends. Our stay began with a warm welcome and visit with our hosts, Anatoly and Rose, and a complimentary glass of wine. While I have to admit we knew the Innkeepers and the Inn as fellow local business people with whom we'd collaborated on projects since they purchased the Inn several years ago and we'd always admired the Inn, our visit was our own inspiration and idea for a low travel respite from the typical New Years Eve frenzy. Despite the holiday, we felt welcome and not at all rushed. Once we'd seen our rooms, each charming and individually decorated, we took some time to relax with our friends in one of the common rooms before heading out to a local restaurant for dinner. Our room was comfortable and cozy. It was such fun and really charming to see scenes of the classic small town we live in through almost every window of the Inn--views of the small Vermont town we'd lived in for almost 50 years, but only seen before looking from the outside in and not through a window. We awoke on New Year's Day to Anatoly's delicious home cooked breakfast of local food we had chosen from an enticing menu the night before. We enjoyed it with our friends and got to know some other guests at the next table. Before we stayed here we always recommended that our visiting friends and customers at our own local business try to stay at the Heart of the Village; now that we've done it ourselves, we'll do it even more enthusiastically. Thanks Anatoly and Rose for a great visit.

Lovely inn with great breakfasts. Hosts are warm and charming. Convenient to Burlington and in the warmer months the Shelburne Museum is not to be missed!!
We had visited previously in the Spring and loved sitting on the side porch in rocking chairs.
