Things To Do

Spending time at the Inn – 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
  • 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 the Farm. Please be aware that there may be a tuition or admission fee.
  • Play board games and puzzles in the Game Room, or play pool on its 19th century pool table.
  • Visit the nearby Shelburne Museum. (Discount tickets for Inn guests!)

As a reminder, the Inn has no elevator, central air conditioning or heat, and no tvs or radios.
