  • Marie Whitcomb at The Whitcomb House is just outstanding to work with. She is always responsive and the prices are very competitive. My daughter wanted the reception in a barn, and The Whitcomb House was perfect. Even out of state guests told us how spectacular it was – the most beautiful venue they had seen! There is pretty lighting strung in the barn, and Marie let us use several huge grape vine wreaths and other decorations. The barn is huge and we had plenty of room for our 120 guests. It got cool at sundown so we closed the barn door. The Whitcomb House has 3 private rooms and a 2 bedroom apartment for rent. My daughter and her bridal party stayed in the apartment the night before the wedding and it was the perfect spot to get ready and take photos. We booked the entire Whitcomb House for the wedding night for the bride & groom and several out of town guests. The morning after the wedding we had a very nice breakfast with those that had stayed there, prepared by Marie. We loved having the reception here and highly recommend it.
  • The Whitcomb House is a delightful bed and breakfast in the country but with quick access to all that is offered in the Burlington area. From the big red barn across the road to the chocolates on the night table you are in for a grand experience. AND that is before you think about Marie’s evening slice of pie and the wonderful country breakfast. While we were there, she made wonderful sweet corn pancakes—-from fresh corn from that very property. So, if you want to soak in a little bit of the Vermont countryside and be pampered by Marie’s wonderful cooking, this is the place for you.

  • We had the most wonderful experience working with Marie, she was very helpful and made it a relaxing and special day! Couldnt have asked for anything more! We stayed at the bed and breakfast the night before and were able to make sure all the last minute details were in order. Started off the day with a personalized breakfast and then took advantage of the barn and field to do some pre-ceremony pictures! Marie and Dave made sure we had everything we needed and were excellent hosts!

  • Staying at the Whitcomb Inn is just wonderful. The house is beautiful and Marie’s small touches make all the difference. She is so exceptionally welcoming and spoiling, it was the best stay of our entire trip. With freshly baked pie on our return every evening and fantastic breakfasts we were spoilt rotten and couldn’t bare to leave as our trip drew to a close. Longing to return again and spend more time!!
    B&B Review
  • I only have great things to say about the Whitcomb House B&B. We had a fun-filled, personable and truly enjoyable time here. Marie is really sweet and made our visit very memorable! This is one place worth staying at during a visit to Burlington. While it’s a short drive from the downtown core, it’s a great scenic drive and not too far from city life. Our stay was very comfortable and fun-filled. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality!!! We look forward to our future visits.

  • I can’t say more about how great the week-end was, except for singing my praises of Marie, the owner of the barn and the Whitcomb Inn. She was the most gracious, cheerful, and down-to-earth hostess one could ever hope to meet. When I mentioned Friday that I wasn’t sure Mom could walk all the way to the ceremony setting, a long way down the field, she said, “No worries. I’ll take care of it.” I didn’t even have to ID my mom to her; Marie checked it out and was right there with her ATV type vehicle and drove Mom down and back up afterwards. Marie is just plain amazing-warm and accomodating, good-hearted, sweet-natured, easy and fun, and just great at helping folks to relax during a possibly stessful time-she is the very best of the best as a hostess for a special event! She is the kind of person that you surely want to hug when it is all over, and I surely did!
    Event Barn Review
  • A truly outstanding 5 night stay in this B&B. Warm and cozy room with all the amenities. The owner, Marie, is a friendly, hospitable and gracious host. She made her home feel like our home. Her culinary expertise offered us the most scrumptious breakfasts with all home baked breads and every evening she left us a homemade pie by to enjoy a slice of before bed. Absolutely awesome. Her little dog “Whitty” Whitcomb is a pure delight. I am already looking forward to our next stay there. Oh, did I mention they have a pool and hot tub as well! It was such a delight to watch fireworks while floating in the pool!
