Things To Do

The Shelburne Museum is just down the road from the Farm Spending time in a quieter place and at a slower pace allows us to rekindle connections with ourselves, our families, and the land — to share walks, meals and real conversation and turn off the noisy world for just a bit. There is lots to do:

  • Take a dip in Lake Champlain (water shoes recommended)
  • Savor a breakfast or dinner on the patio or in the main dining room of our restaurant.
  • Use one of our kayaks, canoe, or rowboat
  • Play a game of tennis on our lakeside court (Har-Tru surface)
  • Challenge your kids to a lawn game – croquet, badminton, bocce ball
  • Relax in the beauty of the Inn's Formal Gardens
  • Explore some of our 10 miles of walking trails
  • Enjoy a guided property tour, one of your complimentary Membership benefits to Shelburne Farms during your stay
  • Attend any program or event at Shelburne Farms.
  • Triumph in the Game Room with 19th century pool table, board games, puzzles
  • Take advantage of a discount ticket to the Shelburne Museum.

In keeping with our commitment to helping our guests find a rare quiet in this beautiful landscape, the Inn has no tvs or radios, air conditioning or heat, elevator, or video games.
