Blueberry picking is very nice, excellent blueberries. Workers there were very friendly and helpful. Just don't use the outhouse there.

We went to the children's farm with a 3 year old who had a blast. We were able to brush a donkey, catch a chicken, and pet sheep, goats, and cows. It was a beautiful setting for a picnic lunch. We purchased food from the food truck that was AMAZING! We went inside. To sample cheese and see the artisans... More

Breakfast on Sunday morning was great. The view across the lake is worth the trip. The weather off of the lake can be different than in Shelburne itself so make sure you have a sweater with you.

We had Father's Day brunch at the Inn, and then walked the gardens. The estate is absolutely stunning! The grounds and view of Lake Champlain are not to be missed........of course our breakfast was lovely, and we were able to eat outside on the patio. We did not take a tour of the barns, but drove by the largest one......I... More

We had a great time here. Went on the tour which the tour guide was excellent. We tried some cheese after and just walked around after on a very nice day. Would recommend this as a stop if you are in the area.

We decided to visit the farm based upon a recommendation from a hotel guest. It's just a few miles south of downtown Burlington. We are so glad we did. This is a non-profit historical site. The property is huge. You can walk the trails/road to the various attractions or take the farm wagon to the barn area or opt for... More

It struck me after gazing over the formal garden to Lake Champlain that these grounds are worth exploring for many different people with different interests. If you are into farming, livestock, hikes, historic homes, fine dining, architecture, formal gardens, or organic food, there is something for you at Shelburne. I highly recommend the tour of the grounds, but not for... More
