We so enjoyed our stay with Rose and Anatoly: lovely inn, delicious breakfasts, relaxing porch with glasses of wine, but most of all, a connection with our hosts that made us feel like we were leaving friends when we checked out. more »

Beautiful and comfortable B&B in ideal walking location for shops, restaurants and concerts at Shelburne Green!
We were attending a concert at the Green at Shelburne Museum, and looking for a lo
cal place within walking distance to stay for the night.
We found the Heart of the Village Inn by reading online reviews, and could not have been happier with our find!
We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay in the beautiful Bostwick Room in the Carriage House building. From the moment we arrived until the moment we departed, we felt welcomed and made to feel at home by the gracious innkeepers Rose and Anatoly.
The Inn is a gorgeous blend of antique and modern. Our room was spacious and romantic, and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was AMAZING! Be sure to try the "cigars" if they're on the menu....what a treat!
Our review is long overdue, and we cannot wait to return again in June for another stay in the Bostwick Room while enjoying another concert at Shelburne Green!

Warm Hospitality at a Charming Inn
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 delight
ful 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. more »

Stumbled across this gem looking for a romantic getaway. So glad we did.
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. more »

A delightful Stay-cation for Us - Opportunity to learn more about our neighboring town
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! more »

A wonderful, brief "staycation"
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 wi
th 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. more »

My husband and I have stayed with Rose and Anatoly several times and this time was just as spectacular as the others. We knew where we wanted to be to celebrate our special day! The Heart of the Village Inn is a unique bed and breakfast run by a couple who truly love and enjoy what they do! Seriously, welcoming people from all over the world and treating them like family takes dedication and a love of being in the hospitality business. Rose and Anatoly have taken great care in the appointments of decor and antiques that fill their beautiful Victorian home and the rooms their guests stay in. I felt welcomed and at home the moment I stepped into the house from the first time we visited. Breakfast is the Inns shining star! Anatoly is a master at making breakfast the most important meal of the day! Everything is made from locally grown products and Rose's special touches of melon cut in the shape of a heart or even a maple leaf starts your day off right! My husband and I are truly spoiled now and I doubt we will ever stay in a hotel again!
Rose and Anatoly are very knowledgeable about Shelburne and the state of Vermont and are quick to answer questions and even offer suggestions if you are looking to do something fun or even a place to enjoy a lunch or dinner that specializes in locally grown food. There is plenty of local attractions to see and visit including the Shelburne Vineyard, the Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farm and the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. Lincoln Peak Vineyards is just a short drive from Shelburne and if enjoying good wine is something you enjoy, you won't be disappointed!
If you have never stayed in a bed and breakfast before, make sure you read their policies before you book. Need a later or earlier check in? Rose and Anatoly are happy to try and accommodate you just remember that sometimes it might be difficult depending on time of year and how booked the Inn is. Unlike a hotel that has people coming and going; a stay at a bed and breakfast is quiet and relaxing. The Inn is located on a busy street and although there is some traffic noise, it was not enough to ruin our experience, let's face it, even the big hotel chains experience some noise from the traffic that surrounds the premise.
Yeah, you have to make your bed it’s part of staying at a bed and breakfast. Fresh towels are provided and trash is emptied daily and soaps and shampoos replaced if you need them. There’s no room service either but snacks are a must if you are so inclined! Adult beverages can be consumed in your room or if you prefer your hosts do have libations for purchase that you can enjoy while sitting in the breakfast area or living room, or your room if you prefer.
I do recommend you take a moment (weather permitting) to enjoy a steaming cup of hot tea or coffee on the beautiful porch that surrounds the house or while enjoying one of the many Adirondack chairs that grace the lawn! Rules are rules and they are there for a reason, just make sure you consult your hosts if you have any questions.
While you are there, do make time to meet the other guests! There is the breakfast area to sit and enjoy or the living room where conversation can ensue! What ever your expectations it’s nice to have a little insight before you stay! The Heart of the Village Inn will always be our slice of heaven. I hope that once you stay the first time it will be yours too.

Just left the one of a kind Bed & Breakfast right in town and local to so many things like coffee shops, wine vineyards, waterfalls, downtown bars etc..
Rose and Anatoly are the best inn keepers
! Like meeting old friends you haven't seen in forever and they welcome you home when you walk through the door with a glass of wine.
Even met Lucy their dog and played tug of war lol
The breakfast experience all in itself a masterpiece! So yummy and specific to your requests each morning ...so many laughs amongst us and that was hilarious... I was told it was extra if I did that . Thank you so much for a wonderful romantic experience and gorgeous room with a heavenly bed and the Jacuzzi was a added bonus in our carriage house room (:
Cannot wait to see you again in the winter and coming back to Vermont!
Sincerely, Lauren and Shawn

We absolutely loved our experience here! Rose and Anatoly were very warm and welcoming hosts, like old friends! We stayed in the Carriage House on the back of the property. It was very quaint and quiet! We felt right at home. The inn is very close to restaurants, breweries, wineries, and more! It’s only about 10 minutes from downtown Burlington. Breakfast every morning was unbelievable. We got to place a custom order the night before, and when we arrived for breakfast, Rose met us with a smile and a plate of fresh fruit before our meal. I’m not sure what was more impressive, the quality of the food or the presentation! Every dish was delicious AND beautifully displayed. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this inn to everyone. We’ll be back! more »

We arrived after a long drive and were graciously welcomed by Rose. The Inn is situated in the center of town and in a perfect location. It is lovingly cared for and meticulously clean. Our room was as pictured online and the bed was super comfortable. Our breakfast was wonderful and much care was taken in the preparation. Anatoly and Rose were fantastic hosts and we would certainly look forward to a return visit. more »

My husband and I were lucky enough to be invited to this beautiful inn by some friends. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before so we didn't know what to expect. The owners were so welcoming and warm. We had many great conversations with them and learned a lot about the area. The breakfast was so fantastic!! Everything was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere was relaxing. I have already recommended it to many of my clients. I wish I had grabbed some business cards to hand out because my hand is tired from writing the information for people. We will definitely return. more »

We really had a great stay!
It would have been more convenient to have the bathroom in the room rather than down the hall. But this was just a very small inconvenience.
The host and hostes
s were excellent - very friendly and informative. The breakfast was great.
We enjoyed the farmer's market just up the block.

So this past weekend my husband and I went to Vermont and stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast -Heart of the Village Inn(all planned by him). I just wanted to say thank you to Rose and Anatoly for your hospitality. You really made it seem like home. From coming downstairs and being greeted with a good morning as if we have known each other forever, to the food-which was absolutely delicious, to the sincerity of truly caring about your guests. Thank you seems hardly enough. I have to say also that the location is ideal as well . Minutes from a winery, museum, Apple orchard, Burlington, and Lake Champlain � more »

They get an A Plus from a frequent traveler.
The B and B is right off main Route Shelburne Road. This is the first time I can say that made no difference, would stay here again and would recomme
nd to a friend.
The Host and hostess were marvelous. The facilities were very attractive. Host explained even little nuances of the rooms and lock system. Bed and bedding was fine. Breakfast was excellent and right on time, multiple choices.
