Perched above Lake Champlain with expansive views of the Adirondacks, the gardens at our Inn reflect the vision of their creator, Lila Webb, with contemporary inspiration from Birgit Deeds, the Farm’s long-time head gardener. The gardens are in the final phase of a multi-year restoration effort. Enjoy a tour of the garden with Birgit followed by a visit to the Archives with Julie Edwards, Curator of Collections. She will share of the gardens, then and now, and how they maintain and honor Lila’s vision.

This is a walking experience; stroll at your own pace.  Terraced garden spaces are accessible by a series of stairs.

Read the recent article in the Burlington Free Press, History Space: The House Gardens at Shelburne Farms, written by Curator of Collections, Julie Eldridge Edwards.
