This petite hotel is ideally located in the upscale hill section in downtown Burlington (easy walking distance to UVM, Church Street Marketplace, Fletcher Allen).

Everywhere sunlight is allowed in, structure is exposed, and the beauty of design without intention is allowed to open and breathe. An urban atmosphere of texture and luxury, sudden splashes of nature and color excite the senses.
All of the interior spaces manage to be at the same time elegant and whimsical, always hinting at the quirkiness of individuality.

NOTABLE TRAVEL WRITER RICHARD BANGS WAS A GUEST AND WROTE:
Linda, the owner, bounds down the stairs and offers up a spiked hot chocolate and decanters of personal warmth. She’s as eclectic as the appointments: shelves of out-of-print art books, vintage games and puzzles, kitschy toys and bibelots, two plump and fuzzy resident cats (Cutie Katie and Casey Boy), cascades of Vermont-made maple candies, cookies, syrups, ciders, popcorn, cheesecake, even cotton candy – and an endless mix of re-purposed, antique, and modern tchotchkes – though, mercifully, no potpourri or lace doilies in sight.
Linda tours me about, including the widow’s watch (or Belvedere), a room with a view of Lake Champlain, where she cryptically claims you can spot Champ, the giant serpentine monster, cousin to Nessie of Loch Ness. My guestroom sprawls like an overstuffed armchair, offering up a working record player with a selection of vinyl LPs from my high school years, nightstands fashioned from djembe drums, and colored LED lights under the bed. Yes, I am seeking restoration, dialing back to a perhaps simpler era, and this may be my hot tub time machine.
After settling in, I decide to walk to town for some nourishment and Linda recommends the locally made flatbread. The Vermont night air is brisk, crisp and bracing. On the tree-lined stroll, I feel the tension scurrying up and out of me. Shoulders unclench. The restorative power of Vermont is kicking in. I’d worked not long ago for Microsoft and Yahoo, and felt the noose of technology tighten; but here, now, it is looping away. The best antidote to too much electronic immersion is an increase in Vermont body contact, unplugged from devices, but plugged into the deep time of the Green Mountain State. It is for some a scandalous idea: the more high-tech we become, the more we need Vermont. The morning next, after a breakfast of Vermont eggs, local cheese, maple bacon, and cinnamon raisin French toast, I pack the car and am ready for the trip."
“If you want an outstanding experience in Burlington, I highly recommend Made INN Vermont. . . . The homey, eclectic atmosphere provides much more than a hotel experience.”
— Five-Star BedandBreakfast.com Review
“Home sweet home. With no sign out front, the newly opened Made Inn Vermont (from . . . a night) feels like an extra-cool secret club. The 19th-century home, set on a pretty tree-lined street just up the hill from downtown, is exquisite, and the vibe is quirky and fun, with a gorgeous part-vintage, part-modern, and all-artistic aesthetic.”
— Susan Russo, offMetro, November 2012
“If you’re someone who values community, good food, and hospitality, this is the place for you!”
”This historical home was obviously painstakingly & lovingly restored but its charm & integrity was kept.”
— Five-Star TripAdvisor Reviews
“Best B&B in Burlington!
Such a fun and unique B&B! Its the perfect place for a couples romantic stay. The website advertises an “urban chic/rustic” inn, and that’s exactly what it is. The décor is awesome - there’s musical instruments, record players, chalkboard walls, eclectic furniture, books, and board games both in the rooms and the common areas. . . .”

““A discerning eye needs only a hint, and understatement leaves the imagination free to build it’s own elaborations.””
— British architect Russell Page, 1906-1985
Guests often resort to hyperbole when describing Made INN Vermont (and we’ll interject some of their comments in the following).
We think of the INN as “Downton Abbey” meets “Uptown Funk,” and Mockingbird Lane hybridized with Madison Avenue. We’ve heard it described as “chic,” “boutique,” “eclectic,” “luxurious,” even “quirky.” We’ll also mention “affordable.” We eagerly await your visit and your comments.
“A budget-friendly boutique B&B with an independent edge. We will definitely stay here again.”
Our top-rated, five-star reviewed INN is a labor of love, as evidenced by the painstaking restoration and elegant appointments of this 1881, Queen Anne mansion, designed by noted architect A.B. Fisher and located in Burlington’s Historic Hill section adjacent to Champlain College.
“Linda and her staff are amazing – nothing was too much trouble. We had a weather-related delay in arriving and she was there to greet us, show us around, and recommend some local restaurants that serve late. The cost of our stay was very affordable and well worth every penny, especially when you consider what you’d spend for a comparable breakfast in a downtown restaurant.”
Our central location invites a short walk to the Church Street Marketplace, one of the premiere pedestrian-only shopping and dining venues in America, with over one million visitors annually. Walk a few blocks further to the shore of Lake Champlain and lakeside tourist attractions, including ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. Or head downhill from the INN to Pine Street and the blossoming South End Arts District.
“I got lost in the library! I spent every spare moment reading and browsing coffee table and artsy books, and jotting down titles I want to add to my own collection.”
With just four high-ceilinged guestrooms (no dormers to head-bump), each with a private bath just steps from your room, you can count on individual attention and the freedom to roam the house and discover its treasures. Plush robes and slippers are provided for an ultimate lounging experience.
“Oh, the bed. I want the bed! Probably the most comfortable bed I’ve slept in ever, with under-bed lighting you can control. I want that in my apartment.”
Mornings begin with a healthy, gourmet Vermont breakfast featuring local products. Our year ‘round outdoor hot tub for six soothes even winter-weary muscles. Our rooftop, 12-window Belvedere (or “Widow’s Watch”) offers a panoramic view of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. Our library is teeming with fascinating books, and our porches, garden, nooks and crannies offer solitude for conversation, coffee, reading and reflection. Our two resident cats don’t enter guests’ rooms, but are usually available downstairs for a purr and a lap snuggle. (We are one of the only pet-friendly B&B’s in the area.)
“The breakfast and coffee were so satisfying and the bed so comfortable that we decided to skip a sightseeing excursion in dreary weather and went back to bed!”
There are many reasons why Burlington appears on so many “Top Ten” lists of America’s best small cities.
Whether you are eloping to Vermont’s Queen City, celebrating an anniversary or special occasion, attending an alumni reunion, checking out our university and colleges, partaking of our picturesque sights, or enjoying our winter sports and all that Lake Champlain offers, we’re here to welcome you and insure that your INN experience will be memorable.
“Innkeeper Linda has thought of everything. It’s paradise for artists, writers, poets, musicians. My husband and I enjoyed flipping through the vinyl record collection (there’s a record player in every guestroom!) and remembering all the LPs we’d had in college. (I’m embarrassed that I shrieked when I found a ‘Captain & Tennille’ album that I loved.) There’s even a collection of musical instruments AND the guestrooms are sound-insulated.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. We invite you to experience Made INN Vermont. Relax in comfortable, affordablel uxury and make your own memories. We’d be honored to have you as our guest.
