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

This is a very special place to stay. Set in landscaped grounds on the edge of Lake Champlain it could not be more perfectly situated. The inn still retains its original furnishings and fittings so you feel as if you have stepped back into the Gilded Age and you can relax into elegant luxury. To sit on the lawn looking... More

The Inn at Shelburne Farms is superb! Our stay was was perfect on so many levels! The bucolic drive through the farm is beautiful - scenes of sheep and the brown Swiss cows grazing in the fields and so much green - mountains everywhere! The Inn is an impressive and historic building. We stayed in the Rose Room which was... More

This is probably the most beautiful place I have ever stayed at. I felt like I was staying at a historical museum but without the velvet ropes to keep you from touching things. I loved that the staff just let you do what you wanted and trusted the guests to have free roam of the place. I noticed that when... More

There is no more resplendent campus than Shelburne Farms Inn. Color changes throughout the day, along with the shimmering lake, provide an unbeatable sensory experience! The Inn staff were accommodating, the rooms breezy (despite no A/C) and the lawn furniture lured this traveler into relaxing while viewing the mountains and lake before me. Daiy packed lunches were more than worthwhile,... More

We arrived in time for afternoon tea and enjoyed our sandwiches and desserts on the Adirondak chairs in the back yard area. Our room was fresh and airy in spite of the high temperatures during our visit. We had a great waiter and enjoyed the spectacular view of the lake and the mountains as we dined.

I recently visited the Inn as part of a group of board members, and felt like I'd died and gone to heaven. When you drive into the property, you enter the magical, beautiful working "elegant" farm that was built as a summer retreat by a Vanderbilt family member and has been preserved as a generous gift of the original owner's...

The scenery was beautiful, the food delicious and the tour enlightening. Unfortunately, the room cleaning was poor. On the first day, we got up late and asked the cleaning person to come back a little later. The room never got cleaned that day. On the second day, the room was partially cleaned except that the comforter was left on a... More
