My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this charming, quiet, and historic B&B. Our hosts were friendly and attentive without being overbearing or intrusive. We stayed in the Thomas Room which is cozy and has a large, well-appointed bath. If you have mobility issues, the steps leading to the 2nd floor are steep and narrow. This is NOT a...

Celebrated our 4th anniversary here and it was so relaxing! We enjoyed the steam shower and huge tub in our suite. Nancy and Mary were so sweet to us and the creme brûlée French toast was the best thing I've ever ate for breakfast! Hope we can come back soon!

If we cannot stay with family, we stay HERE at Willis Graves B&B because it is closer to HOME than any place on earth. The rooms are delightful, clean, cozy, romantic..and the breakfasts the next morning are better than any B&B breakfast anywhere. Choices of entrees all homemade and to your specifications. Cheerful service, caring owners, historical significance make this...

We've been to over 90 different B&Bs over the last 35 years. Willis Graves is now in our top 5. We particularly appreciate when the innkeepers are hands-on and pay attention to every detail to make your stay memorable. Nancy has perfected that craft. The colonial style house has all the charm of Colonial Williamsburg and beautifully appointed with antiques...

We had never stayed in a bed and breakfast until this visit to Burlington's Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast Inn. Being a little unsure of what the experience would hold, I searched long and hard to check it out. And I found highly complementary evaluations. You can believe all of the wonderful comments you will read! They're all true. It's...

My husband, Roland, and I stayed in the William Rouse cabin suite for his birthday. It was more than expected from the online pictures--a clean, cozy, home-away-from-home. The sitting area in the lower level of the cabin was very comfortable. The jacuzzi had more jets than most tubs. My husband has restless leg syndrome and it really helped him to...

I needed a two night retreat to refresh and rejuvenate. Willis Graves was just perfect. After a fantastic breakfast, I spent the day hiking at the nearby England Idlewild Park and enjoying the sunshine on the beautiful terrace. I walked into town for lovely early dinner, then picked out a movie from the great collection for a quiet evening. Can't...

I have wanted to stay here for years but it was booked for those holidays when I was in town. This time a family emergency brought me to Burlington. A huge stroke of luck had me able to stay at this B&B for 9 days. It felt like home away from home, important when you are away from your own...
