History of Our Building

A LEGENDARY NEW ENGLAND CITY RETREAT: A LANDMARK BUILDING REBORN FROM HISTORY TO HIP.

Our stunning Victorian home was constructed in 1881, and designed by noted architect A.B. Fisher, who designed many of Burlington’s exemplary buildings and distinctive homes in the historic Hill District. Its Queen Anne-style includes Italianate features such as a rooftop, enclosed Belvedere, also called a “widow’s watch,” as legend has it that the mariners’ wives would scan Lake Champlain, especially during stormy weather, waiting for ships to come into safe harbor. (They had cause for worry; there are over 300 historic shipwrecks at lake’s bottom.)

204 South Willard Street was built as the residence for L.A. Walker, who owned a marble and granite works in Burlington, Walker Brothers. He later formed a partnership, Walker & Taplin, which dissolved after 1888. Walker resided in the home until 1907, when it was sold to an attorney, Edmund Mower, and his widow, Maud, lived in the home until after World War II. Linda Wolf purchased the property in 2006 and opened Made INN Vermont in August, 2012.

SOME OF OUR

Testimonials

“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

“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. . . .”

British architect Russell Page,
1906-1985

“This Bed and Breakfast is truly unique. The hotel is in a beautiful old Victorian house filled with charm and history. The rooms are all decorated uniquely. My bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. There was a chalk board wall where people leave messages about their stay. ”
