#191 Shelburne Farms

“On a bluff overlooking 100-mile-long Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks beyond, the Inn at Shelburne Farms sits on 1400 aces designed by great landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who laid out New York’s Central Park.  You’re the lord of the manor at the red brick, Queen Anne-style country mansion, built in 1899 as the largest home in Vermont by Lila Vanderbilt and her husband William Seward Webb.”


“The farm was conceived by the Webbs and embellished by their great-grand-children as a nonprofit environmental education center. In addition to being a rural marvel, it produces an excellent Cheddar cheese, compliments of the Brown Swiss cows grazing within site [and smell].”
