My husband and I stayed here in the spring when all the lilacs were in bloom. This stunning inn is one of the summer homes of Lila Vanderbilt Webb and sits on the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain. (The Vanderbilt's are responsible for building the railroads in this country.) The inn is now part of the Webb estate which is... More

This was a real treat, dampened only by the fact I could only stay one day. The house (now inn) has been beautifully maintained. I appreciated the original appearance of rooms, with traditional beds, more than I would a bigger bed and plush mattress on which I insist at most hotels. We had a memorable meal in the restaurant both... More

Many others have waxed on about the Inn's striking location and beautiful views, and I fully agree: the setting is stunning. The Inn's main building, a vintage private house, oozes rustic Gilded Age atmosphere. The Inn is part of the expansive Shelburne Farms complex, and is about a five-mile drive outside Burlington. We recently had a one-night stay in the... More

Wow what can I say except this place blew us away. It was so nice. We were in the Pink Room which was quite large. Others have reported on the history of this Inn so I won't go into that again other than to say it was a privilege to stay in such a historic place. The bed was only... More

I had stayed for one night at the Inn at Shelburne Farms several years ago on the drive between Boston and Montreal, and was impressed enough that I made plans to return. My wife and I and our 19 year old son stayed five days over the Fourth of July holiday, first in the Lilac room and then in adjoining... More

We have traveled to many places in and outside the US, and the Inn at Shelburne Farms is unique and extraordinary. Built as a late 19th century mansion on Lake Champlain, with grounds designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (the designer of Central Park), this magnificent Inn manages to be elegant, warm, grand, and welcoming all at the same time. And... More

My husband and I stayed at Shelburne Farms for the first time last week, and we enjoyed every minute! The inn, as you probably know, is the former mansion of Seward and Lila (Vanderbilt) Webb. We were amazed to be welcomed to touch and use all of the original furniture, books and household items. The house is lovely and so... More

I can't wait for a return and longer stay at the Inn at Shelburne Farms. With a retreat-like atmosphere, the Inn encourages decompressing and access to the outdoors while also offering incredible amenities (like afternoon tea, morning coffee and cubbies with blankets for cool times and beach towels for warmer days). The shared spaces include a phenomenal library and the... More
