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.
GUEST ETIQUETTE POLICIES
WHAT POTENTIAL GUESTS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT Made INN Vermont B&B: We cater to the infamous One Percent that our Senator, Bernie Sanders, frequently refers to. In low season, we capitulate more than a Clinton, and bring that down to the Three Percent. (Just kidding, of course. All of our guests are as distinctive as we are! And so far, Donald Trump has never written a nasty tweet about us.). .
Our breakfasts are always homemade, sumptuous, and filling. How "elegantly" they are plated depends on how much sleep your innkeeper has had.
Innkeeper and staff are free-spirits and our inn reflects that plus the Burlington and Vermont "vibe." That spirit is infectious (and we also responsibly serve local, award-winning IPAs and secret recipe sangria). We have all kinds of perks such as an outdoor hot tub. However, our neighboring property owners will appreciate if you don't howl at the moon.
Our local weather report for this coming weekend: "Purple rain."
Our 20-year-old inn kitty is not only friendly, every morning, we hold a mirror up to her muzzle to make sure she's still breathing . . .yup, you better have a sense of humor or your stay with us could be a bit too much for you?!
We ask our guests to inform the Innkeeper if they wish to host a visitor or two. There may be some limitations and we expect courtesy and tranquility for all the guests of the inn.
Only registered guests are allowed access to the second floor (guestrooms and bathrooms; there is a “powder room” off the café area for guests and their visitors).
Visitors are expected to depart by 10 p.m. unless permission has been granted by the innkeeper.
Visitors are welcome on the ground floor, porches, gardens and outdoor seating area with the exception of the hot tub. Visitors may not use the rooftop cupola, upstairs game room/sauna.
Please note that our regular check-in time is 3-6 p.m. Early check-in is usually not possible, especially during peak and holiday seasons. (Our check-out time is 11 a.m. and very detailed housekeeping is performed on each room/private bath thereafter. We can’t afford therapy for our housekeepers.) If you’re flying in or arriving in Burlington earlier than 3 p.m., we can usually accept your luggage and recommend places to have a relaxing lunch.
Late check-ins are possible; please discuss with the innkeeper in advance and you’ll be sent a late check-in form. If you do not inform us of a late check-in, it may be considered a “no-show” with all the applicable charges. (We also have secure, keyless entry that you’ll want to know about in advance.)
We have a beer and wine license and offer a complementary welcoming beverage or two. In compliance with state law, we cannot allow “bring-your-own-bottle.” We have complementary snacks throughout the inn; please imbibe responsibly.
Our rooms are as sound-insulated as possible; each comes with a record player and there are vinyl record collections throughout the inn, in addition to various musical instruments. Please be respectful about volume and the peaceful slumber of our other guests. If you’re happy, we’re happy, but jumping up and down on the bed in glee is strongly discouraged (especially if you’ve had a complementary beverage).
All of our guests inspire happiness!
The majority when they check-in.
(The rare few, when they check-out.)*
*Yes, we have a sense of humor. Laughter and good times are part of the Made INN Vermont experience.
