We made reservations (8:15 on a Wednesday night) a couple months in advance and glad we did. This was a first trip to Vermont. We made an early preview visit to the property which was nice since there was still daylight, don't miss the grounds! The place is gorgeous on the lake and nice to have a drink before dinner....

Our dinner at Shelburne Farms was very, very special. The food was luscious. My wife started with the "Feast of the Fields", all grown in the farm's market garden. There fresh carrots, pickled parsnips, steamed onions, and so much more, elegantly laid out on a sharable board, with relishes and aioli. Cauliflower atop a smear farmer's cheese (scrumptious combination, both... More

Food was excellent; the selection was somewhat limited but adequate. The waiter did a great job and was attentive. We dined on the terrace and the view of the surroundings, especially the lake, was super.

The Inn is beautifully maintained and packed with history. The service at dinner was excellent. The menu was fashioned as farm-to-table grown fine dining. The chef choice to offer trios and market plates delivered great presentation, but flavor was lacking with several items; hope the menu could become a bit simpler more focused on his specialties.

Excellent locavore menu - from the farm raised beef, lamb and chicken - organically grown vegetables and, of course, the cheese made at the Dairy - service was pleasant and attentive - the dining room and bar elegant and authentic late 18th early 19th century English - if you are able to reserve an outdoor table to catch the sunset...

We made reservation for dinner one night, and breakfast another day, and we so pleased with both. At dinner, even though we had a reservation there were no tables on the terrace, so, after a bit of a debate with the hostess (she had wanted to seat us in the back of the dinning room)we were given a table right...

Beautiful old inn and farm, lots of land, local sourced fresh food. Went for dinner during the summer, had a delicious dinner, little on the high side but worth it for a special night out. The gardens and view of the sunset over the lake and the adrondicks is fantastic.

We have been here many times but never written a review. Shelburne Farms is a special place that was been beautifully preserved. The Inn was full so we just had dinner this time for our anniversary. Even though it was stormy and we could not sit outside, the views of the setting sun over the Adirondacks and the impending thunder... More

Our family chose Shelburne Farms for a small birthday celebration. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful views of the gardens and lake. We had a variety of entrees from the vegetarian option (stuffed pepper) to the salmon and beef trio. All were excellently prepared and served. The wine menu was extensive with great moderately priced options as well as... More
