Hartwell House Bed & Breakfast
Small-town pleasures near urban attractions.
This pretty, white storybook house looks as if it was lifted out of a Norman Rockwell painting. The setting is residential, but it's right on the Burlington bus line, which makes it convenient for those who need to get around town. The vibe is laid-back and warm. The three bedrooms are furnished with antiques and have hardwood floors. Privacy nuts should note that they share a bathroom. The Benedict Arnold Room is decorated simply, with a beautiful sleigh bed complete with feather mattress. The even simpler The Dormer has twin beds draped in handmade quilts. The Skylight Room boasts---you guessed it---a skylight; set above the bed, it offers great views of the stars. Continental breakfast is served in the family kitchen or on the deck in season. The pool, surrounded by trees, is the kind that every kid dreams of having in their back yard. If you're visiting from Canada, the B&B offers a discount.
