view web site ›'s insider take:

The luckiest animals in the world live at Shelburne Farms: These 1,400 acres on Lake Champlain represent Vermont's most prime piece of real estate. Sure, the moo-makers and oinkers have to endure the squeals of schoolchildren on field trips. But there's the chance of scraps from the Inn at Shelburne Farms, whose restaurant serves locally grown produce from the site's own Market Garden. The Brown Swiss cows produce the milk that will eventually become tasty aged Cheddar. All of the animals—and the humans who visit here when it's open, May through October—have William Seward and Lila Vanderbilt Webb to thank for Shelburne Farms. In 1887, they founded the property as a model agricultural estate and built magnificent breeding, dairy, and coach barns to match the 36,800-square-foot mansion, which is now a 24-room inn (rooms, a bit heavy on the chintz, start at $245 with en-suite bath). The farm continues to educate visitors about sustainability and to host myriad concerts and events, including summer's impressive Mozart Festival. Guests seeking quieter pursuits will enjoy the walking trails meandering through the woods and meadows. Shelburne Farms is a must-see.

Open daily 10 am to 4 pm, mid-May to mid-October.
