Coopers Inn was a time stop in history at a beautiful house from the 1700s. The hosts were very nice and the room was beautiful. We stayed in the Gracie room which was quite large and included a mini fridge which we appreciated. The breakfast in the morning was made to order and delicious. I would definitely make some time...

Yes, arrivals in Shelburne later in the evening are a challenge when you have an appetite for a really nice meal. That being said, we do have a very notable eatery here in Shelburne, Charlotte Lane, and reservations are advisable. Many visitors to Shelburne go out of their way to assure they can treat themselves with Charlotte Lane's fine fare.

In a small town you would not expect to find such a high quality B and B. The hosts are helpful, without being intrusive. The social hour, which is open to any guest, is a fantastic way to casually meet people from all over. The Cooper Inn is a lovely place to stay (and follow their suggestion for dinner at...

Comfortable "historic" room, ours was in the front of the building and so nominally had a view of the water. Breakfast was terrific. Unfortunately, only one restaurant was open on the Monday we were in Shelburne, and it wasn't great. The (closed) restaurants did not look very inspiring.

You're right. The dining choices are limited on Mondays. Pub fare is pretty much the only choice. The reviews are generally favorable, that being said. For outstanding food the area boasts a variety of choices with Charlotte Lane (4 minute walk from The Cooper's Inn) being the favorite and Capt. Kat's Lobster Shack in Barrington Passage ( 30 minute drive)...

This B&B is lovely with nice rooms and a pleasant outdoor patio to sit and enjoy the garden. The location is great and allows you to walk around this quaint and historic town which has several museums and galleries to visit. Because we only stayed one night which was a Monday the restaurant choices were quite limited but the innkeeper...

Pat and Dave treat this as their home and it is meticulously maintained--well appointed and excellent sheets, pillows and a chime in the garden that sings you to sleep. We were cycling the Yarmouth loop with FreeWheeling Adventures and they had booked us for two nights at Cooper's. The breakfasts were outstanding, french pressed coffee, everything fresh and it is...

You and all that visit us are indeed like family...you know...the good kind! Thank you for your kind comments and observations. The chimes do add a 'zen-like' sense of peace and calm. They feel right in our garden.

Nice room and nice hosts! Enjoyed the peace and quiet. Walking distance to all you need. Most restaurants closed on Monday. Right near the water so lovely! Happy hour to meet fellow travelers. Good stay!!

On Mondays the Seadog Saloon is pretty much the best bet for atmosphere and good pub style cuisine in the Dock Street Historic District. Local craft beers, a well respected Chowder and more. And certainly the best view in town, including the yacht club marina. We do love the interactions between guests and all. Such a small world, as we...

This was the best spot we stayed at during our 9 days in Nova Scotia, exploring the Southern Shore and Annapolis Valley. And I use superlatives sparingly unlike many reviewers. The owners of this bed and breakfast provide a beautifully maintained lodging in a glorious spot. And the breakfast is excellent. We contemplated another visit soon, staying a week, if...

Lovely B&B. Pat and Dave were very accommodating and the fish cakes Dave made for breakfast was a wonderful treat. Happy hour in the garden with all the other guests was a lovely way to meet new people.

We had a small room at the Cooper's Inn during a short trip around the South Shore of NS. Our room was in a small building behind the main Inn just off the garden. The room was adequate although small. The bathroom contained a very small shower that would not accommodate large people. Late in the afternoon, our hosts provided...

Some of the best things come in small packages. Thank you for appreciating the nature of our Inn and our community. Shelburne's claim to fame is often found in the richness of its past continuing in its present. Lots of diamonds where one not expect to find them.

Stayed here two nights while on a bicycle tour. By far the nicest of the B & B's in which we stayed on Nova Scotia. Nice garden area (with social hour every day), comfortable, well-kept-up rooms, innkeepers very knowledgeable about Shelburne and Nova Scotia. They recommended a great restaurant (Charlotte Lane), which is apparently the only "really good " restaurant...

Charlotte Lane is an exceptional eatery and certainly is outstanding in Nova Scotia and the Maritime Provinces, perhaps beyond. We are very fortunate to have it and such a wonderfully well rounded chef and support staff in our community. Charlotte Lane is definitely a complement to our varied accommodations in the Shelburne area. Thank you for your praise of our...
