Overlooking the beautiful Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains beyond, The Big House at Lakeview farm was built by Lemuel S. Drew in the mid - 1800's. This beautiful Victorian house was part of a 266 acre farm which reached from Spear Street down to Shelburne Bay, and is listed as one of the historic buildings located in the Burlington area. Much of the interior decor is reminiscent of the past with a nod to the rustic settings found throughout Vermont, while catering to the modern tastes of our clientele. Sit down and relax while watching the game on one of several TV's in our bar area, or slip into a cozy little nook for a romantic dinner for two. If you have something larger in mind, our facility is more than capable of handling your banquet needs in one of our two banquet rooms.
In regards to our kitchen; our present day philosophy takes a note from the past. We use the freshest ingredients from as many local farmers as best we can while still maintaining a great price for our guest. One way we accomplish both of these is by going back to our roots by being our own farmer. Come in and enjoy a sunny afternoon on our patio and listen to some music while our chef picks fresh vegetables and spices from our adjacent garden to prepare in your meal. Maybe you will catch a glimpse of our bartender stepping out back to pick fresh mint to make your mojito all the more tasty. All of our food is prepared in house by our kitchen from scratch just like it would have been done on the farm all those years ago.
It is in this spirit that we welcome you to our Big House.
