Housed in an exquisite turn-of-the-20th-century Tudor-style inn on the patchwork lands of Shelburne Farm, The Inn at Shelburne Farms is open seasonally and offers guests a unique and sustainable retreat, a perfect weekend getaway idea from New York, Boston and other cities. Once the home of Dr. William Seward and Lila Vanderbilt Webb, the 19th-century country house was restored to its former glory in 1987 and continues the age-old tradition of warmth, elegance, charm, and hospitality enjoyed by guests for more than a century.
Perched at the edge of Lake Champlain, the elegant Queen Anne Revival-style manor house is surrounded by perfectly landscaped grounds designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the mastermind behind New York’s Central Park, and boasts breath-taking views of the distant Adirondacks. The National Landmark Inn offers beautiful accommodations, an award-winning restaurant, exquisitely manicured gardens and a sumptuous and relaxing environment in which to unwind in style.
The Inn at Shelburne Farms is situated on Shelburne Farms, a working farm that includes a dairy that produces milk and cheese products, a Market Garden that offers fresh fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs, and pristine woodlands. Shelburne Farms prides itself on producing food that honors and preserves the land it comes from and supports a sustainable sustainable agriculture, such as farmstead cheddar cheese, organic fruits and vegetables, pasture-raised lamb, beef, veal and pork, and free-range chickens and eggs.
Shelburne Farms has a modern Welcome Center and Farm Store where visitors can find out all the information they need to know about the farm, the Inn and its surrounding walking trails, as well as taste and buy the farm’s farmstead cheddar cheese and fresh eggs, an array of Vermont products and crafts, and a variety of children’s and adult books on nature, agriculture, and the environment.
