Anniversary Dinner with the Sunset

Within the last 20-30 years the entire place has been fixed up and brought to life. The Inn offers excellent food at a reasonable price. Much of the menu consists... read more

If you want to really impress your dinner partner this is the place. Set on Lake Champlain at the Vanderbilt/Webb estate the ambiance is spectacular. Sit out on the patio with the rolling expanse of lawn that blends into the lake and explodes upon the NY Adirondack mountains. Locally grown food and farm raised meat right on the premise. The...

The breakfast there was amazing. The walls were beautifully decorated and there is a place outside to sit and eat as well. The view is beautiful. The service was fast and the food is locally sourced. Great place for family breakfast! Outside, in the room next to the dinning room, there was even someone playing the harp. Beautiful way to... More

We enjoyed Sunday Brunch here. I feel I have to clarify 'Sunday Brunch', because I was a little confused, based on their online menus. The Sunday Brunch is their regular breakfast menu with extended hours. So if you are not in the area on a Sunday, don't worry: it's the same. My wife and I shared Eggs Benedict and Buttermilk...

It's really not that difficult with Udi's or other gluten-free bread makers to find a loaf to freeze and offer for guests as a dinner and breakfast bread option.

Five friends and I celebrated a birthday at The Inn on our recent trip to Vermont. The entire evening was wonderful. We arrived early and had a drink as we walked around the beautiful inn and gardens which are on Lake Champlain. Our service was excellent and the food was devine!! The sunset over the lake was absolutely stunning and... More

This place is simply wonderful. If you want the best view in the area and the best breakfast in the area make a reservation and drive through the gates for a magical experience. If the weather is nice you can sit out on the covered patio with breathtaking views of the formal gardens and Lake Champlain. Everything we have had... More

Some friends of ours had recommended the Shelburne as a special dinner and they were not wrong. The grounds of the working farm leading to the Inn over two miles of gravel roads was like riding up to the Biltmore House. We got there early enough to walk down to the gardens at the lake before dinner and it was... More
