Cute antique inn. The service was great, the rooms very cozy and excellent breakfasts. We also enjoyed dinner one evening and had an amazing cream of stinging nettle soup. They also held live music in the evenings. Definitely recommend staying here.
Do you want to have a birthday of a lifetime? Come to the Shelburne Inn. Innkeepers David Campiche and Laurie Anderson make the historic Shelburne Inn a dream come true. My wife and I spent my 60th birthday weekend with the inn keepers and their guests: .the room, classic; the food, incomparable including wild mushrooms foraged by David and other delights of the earth including fresh greens and sea beans, breads by Laurie, and so much more including two 1985 bottles of Pinot Noir from David's private collection...breakfast is heaven to wake to including David's special of the day, like scrambled eggs with wild foraged mushrooms and water cress...the ambiance is quite eclectic and the inn quite historic...comfortable, peaceful, quiet, happy, personable...rooms and public spaces filled with interesting gift ideas and incredible pottery from the innkeeper's pottery wheel. This is an inn in the historic sense with space to find your own space or have fun exchanging your adventures with the other travelers in the inn. Our visit was visit was truly memorable. Thank you David and Laurie... Michael and Judi Hoffman
What a wonderful little hotel. It's filled with antiques of all ages. The beds are super comfortable. Really has the feel of a bed and breakfast with all the amenities of a hotel. The restaurant is fabulous, can't rave enough about the food. Breakfast is includes and it is well worth having dinner while you're there, the salmon was amazing!
The ambiance of the Shelburne Inn is charming. The main common gathering room lends itself to a variety of activities. Guests can find a quiet corner to read, visit around the fireplace, or surround the table for games. The décor mimics an old Irish or English hotel. An abundance of common areas make you feel like you’ve just returned home. Stained glass windows across the front of the hotel were salvaged from a church in England and are late 1800’s vintage. Lots of antique furniture, stained glass, and interesting accessories are found throughout the halls and guest rooms. Immediately, the helpful, friendly staff made us feel at home, taking care of every need. The common rooms and guest rooms were clean, neat, and well appointed. The pub is quaint and inviting, and although we didn’t eat there, my husband enjoyed a pint or two. The restaurant offered an interesting array of well prepared and beautifully presented dishes with wild mushrooms as one of the main attractions. Although on the expensive side, the restaurant is well worth it for a special dinner. Breakfast and service personnel were excellent. I definitely recommend the Shelburne Inn and hope to return there someday.
We've been going to the Shelburne Inn for almost 20 years now; it is a wonderful getaway. The service is friendly, the rooms are beautifully furnished and clean, and the dining is amazing; we've had the best breakfasts in their lovely dining room! A place with tremendous character and comfort.
We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at the Shelburne Inn, which included an excellent dinner in their dining room. The artwork was very interesting, and much of it was created by our host, Dave. People were charming and friendly and we loved the room.
The Shelburne is in all aspects a treasure. Charming rooms, absolutely delicious and unique meals, a wonderful setting and the innkeepers, David and Laurie are wonderful people. This is the place we go to for special occasions, e.g. anniversary etc., or when we just need to get away for a couple days. We've stayed both at the in and their nearby China Beach, both are superb!
I stayed at the China Beach Retreat, which is just down the way from the Shelburne Inn directly on the Bay. This was by far the best experience that I have ever had with not only customer service, but with everything else. I had no problems sleeping, which I usually do when away from home. The staff went above and beyond to facilitate my food allergies and my wi-fi needs. You will not be disappointed with David and Laurie, or any of their staff. Everyone was Amazing!
My daughter & I were there with a very large group for my niece's wedding in June, 2009. Just the number of people alone would have been a challenge without any other challenges thrown in. But you made us all feel welcome & treated us all with the utmost respect. You & Laurie made our stay SO enjoyable. Thank you both for a wonderful visit! Being from the south I can say you would make a wonderful "Southern Gentleman"! And your talents as a chef aren't bad either! :) My best to you & your family, Pam (Frankie) Weems
What everyone wishes grandma's house had been. Lots of rooms and levels and cubbyholes to explore. Excellant food. Authentic room decor. Loved having breakfast at the large round table with other guests. And breakfast is an experience! Gourmet choices are offered and served by personable owners/chefs. Delightful experience.
