We really enjoyed our overnight stay at Shelburne Farms Inn. The room was lovely, obviously old, but well maintained and charming. The food and service were excellent. Really enjoyed walking around the property, learning the history and enjoying the gorgeous views!

Excellent food and service as usual. We come for breakfast once or twice a summer and it is always a treat. Beautiful views of the garden and the lake. The food and service are consistently great. They use mostly local ingredients.

Whether you're attending one of our Wednesday night concerts at Shelburne Farms or have tickets for one of the Ben & Jerry's Concerts at Shelburne Museum, bringing your own chairs or a blanket to sit on is a good idea!
