We did the tour and spent the day at the farm. The tour takes you through the entire property, talking about the history and day to day life. there are diff activities - we went on the weekend so we got to take part in milking a cow.

Shelburne Farms is an absolutely breathtaking and beautifully maintained destination in Shelburne, VT. The grounds are just magnificent and the farmbarn and cottage were a joy to visit. We paid extra and took a tour of the Inn and grounds led by two of the volunteers, which was so worth the money and our time. It was an absolute pleasure... More

Visited with kids and grandkids, and had a great time, as always. Kids love the tractor ride, farm animals, toys, and more. Followed up by a delicious pizza and beer at nearby Fiddlehead Brewery and the pizza place that shares the same building.

We took the tractor ride to the farm where there are most educational exhibits for young children. Just the ride through some beautiful scenery is worth it!! Later in the afternoon we had signed up for the "Tea Tour" of the Shelburne Inn. We had a very knowledgable tour guide who filled us in on historical details of the Inn... More

We went on a wonderful tour of this amazing property. Wish we had gotten there earlier in the day and will be back to go to the museum for sure! Very reasonable tour price and our tour guide "Ann" was very knowledgeable and so sweet!

We brought the kids and they had a blast. Terrific, authentic farm experience. The kids cuddled goats, saw new born piglets, held a chicken, milked a cow and had a lunch made from the farm's products.

Just amazing. If you're not going for the festival, the grounds and Inn are breathtakingly beautiful. Don't miss the bakery at the barn. Wonderful to see the educational contribution this facility is giving. Such a treasure.

This National Historic Landmark is the home of gorgeous vistas, flora and fauna of the region and a late 19th & 20 century farm country estate William Seward and Lila Vanderbilt Webb noted for the preservation of the architecture and landscape. After several hours of strolling through their grounds and barns, we were treated to an outstanding patio dining experience... More

As adults, we did not find as much of interest, as it is definitely an educational place. Still, its history appealed to us. We enjoyed watching cheesemaking, and the hike to a beautiful view of the hotel and Lake Champlain. Our young families have enjoyed it (children and grandchildren).
