The Inn at Shelburne Farms is a very special place - it's hard to beat sitting in an Adirondak chair looking at the Adirondaks across Lake Champlain at sunset, with a cocktail or glass of wine. The inn is a Vanderbilt summer home circa 1899, on a working model farm; it's not exactly a luxury hotel (no heat or AC) but it's the height of luxury in a different way. Rooms vary greatly, so choose carefully.
But something's gone wrong in the restaurant, which is integral to the experience. Dishes have been made more complicated (perhaps because prices were raised to big-city levels?) and now seem less than the sum of their parts. Ingredients, many local, are still excellent (the lamb especially) and breakfast is too. Service is fine throughout.More
