The Inn at Shelburne Farms
Scale of 90-100
Distinctive historic inn, once the home of Dr. William Seward and Lila Vanderbilt Webb, beautifully situated on a 1,400-acre estate overlooking Lake Champlain. Fully restored in 1987, preserving many of the beautiful appointments in the gracious public areas. Many of the 24 rooms feature original furnishings, but no TVs. (Note: Five of the rooms have shared baths; be sure to inquire.) The inn is part of a nonprofit organization that includes the original farm, which provides much of the produce for meals in the excellent dining room. Extensive walking and jogging trails; farm tours are worthwhile. Easy drive to Burlington, with its many restaurants and cultural activities. Open May through October. Four cottages also available.
