“Beautiful scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We took the tractor ride to the farm where there are most educational exhibits for young children. Just the ride through some beautiful scenery is worth it!! Later in the afternoon we had signed up for the "Tea Tour" of the Shelburne Inn. We had a very knowledgable tour guide who filled us in on historical details of the Inn and a lovely tour of the public rooms of the Inn, as well as some of the bedrooms. Tea and treats were self-served at the end of the tour. Just to stroll through the garden, Inn and surrounding grounds are well worth going there on its own! It is indeed wonderful that this historic landmark has been so lovingly restored. I can only imagine that an overnight stay at this beautiful Inn would be a magnificent way to go back in time.

“History not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We went on a wonderful tour of this amazing property. Wish we had gotten there earlier in the day and will be back to go to the museum for sure! Very reasonable tour price and our tour guide "Ann" was very knowledgeable and so sweet!

“Worth extending our stay in the area for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

We brought the kids and they had a blast. Terrific, authentic farm experience. The kids cuddled goats, saw new born piglets, held a chicken, milked a cow and had a lunch made from the farm's products.

“Vermont Cheesemakers Festival”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Just amazing. If you're not going for the festival, the grounds and Inn are breathtakingly beautiful. Don't miss the bakery at the barn. Wonderful to see the educational contribution this facility is giving. Such a treasure.
