A great place to stay in Burlington -- right near Church Street, City Hall Park, the Flynn Theater--and within walking distance of beautiful and interesting neighborhoods. Nancy was a great host, and we liked the spacious rooms and the down-home feel of the kitchen and breakfast area. Unpretentious, super-clean, and welcoming. We'd definitely stay there again.

When our plans to travel to Burlington had to be cancelled unexpectedly, the owner of Sunset B&B went out of her way to fill the room we booked. Even though we cancelled our reservation the same afternoon we were due to arrive, we were not charged a thing. Definitely super nice people!

My husband and I stayed in this heritage home for 2 evenings in August 2012. Nancy welcomed us and we enjoyed chatting with her. The location is very close to the downtown area and the lake, making it easy to walk around. The home is very neat and clean and the "green" room most comfortable. We like the self serve... More

A fantastic place to stay. Sunset House is a beautifully restored Victorian property well decorated (maybe a little over the top with cuddly toys, but hey, that's a man speaking!). Nancy and Paul are very friendly hosts and it was lovely talking with them. Our room was at the front of the house and was very spacious and comfortable (we... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this bed and breakfast. The owners were welcoming and gracious, the rooms cozy and comfortable, and the breakfast healthy and tasty. It's location is perfect if you want to walk to the Church St. Marketplace or to see the sunset on the lake.

Located close to downtown and near the lake, this B&B represents excellent value. Service is basic - self-serve breakfast and shared baths, but all offered in a friendly atmosphere and very clean environment. Nancy is very accomodating, friendly, and quick to help out with any questions or local recommendations. Rates are well below local hotels in this area of town... More

“Room 2 is on the street side and the traffic noise was considerable. An air conditioner and earplugs remedied the situation.”

“There are only four rooms in the house but our party took up two of them and both were great, so we can vouch for the Train Room and the Green Room, though I bet the other two were just as wonderful.”
