This place is a treasured place to visit. A true must see stop in the area. The volunteers a very knowledgeable and friendly. The grounds tour is very informative about the family history of the farm and concludes with a cheese tasting.

We visited on a very cold winter day, so not much was open compared to during the warmer months. We walked to the main barn...which was more like a mansion. The most beautiful, imposing barn I have ever seen. We stopped in the bakery and bought some wonderful pastries and cookies. We hiked some of the paths (Lone Tree Hill,... More

We have eaten here twice with friends. Both times it was Sunday breakfast. Reservations are a must. Excellent setting, good food and pleasant servers. After your meal a walk around the mansion overlooking the lake will bring home the opulence of the gilded age.

We were mainly interested in the cheese making process which is performed using the farm milk. It's free and informative.

We met friends for dinner here and were swept off of our feet. The atmosphere of this grand old place is exquisite, with beautifully maintained elegant architecture which is filled with beautiful antiques, and unbelievable views of Lake Champlain. Dinner comes from their own farm and is therefore fresh and sustainable. The entrees are creative and delicious, and should prove... More

I've had the pleasure of visiting Shelburne Farms for close to 20 years, with friends, with my children when they were little and most recently often as a solo trail runner. A wonderful place to take young children but really a destination for all ages. The farm barn offers hands-on experiences with sheep, goats, chickens, pigs and learning activities. There... More

What a day to remember; a cold day but with the bluest sky and an extensive lush green landscape. We only visited the main farm building but what a lot to see! We saw cheddar being made, a carpenter at work and lots of lovely animals. The petting farm was the best part in fact; up close and personal with... More

The views here are absolutely stunning! The rooms, service, and food left us amazed and refreshed. The afternoon tea over looking the lake is a must! If you have children, make sure to check out the kids room with large dollhouses! The inn was picture perfect in every detail.

When we visited in mid-November, there were many locals enjoying the beautiful walking trails. We caught a sunset from Lone Tree Hill, then returned the next morning for a longer look around. The farm barn and inn are amazing buildings - we felt like we'd dropped into medieval Scandinavia - very photogenic. There were free relish and cheese samples in... More
