we booked our cottage and were met by a very friendly lady. Our cottage was clean and very nice.A wonderful continental breakfast in the morning. We loved this place and would highly recommend it as it is such a pretty place.

This place was a little piece of heaven on our trip! First 2 nights in one of the cottages, and then the honeymoon sweet. Exceptional customer service, fridge, stove and everything you could need for a longer stay... Very clean, cozy and relaxing environment! I've been recommending them to all our family and friends, especially with their great rates!

Very nice two bed cottage! We enjoyed the clean and very comfortable one night stay. The continental breakfast (included) was yummy and easy to access without fighting crowds of people. Very friendly reception and would stay here again in a second!

Don't let the smallness of the town of the aura of cottages fool you. These are immaculately kept, spacious, and would highly recommend if you want to relax or even work at a slower pace. Great little breakfast with home made treats as well.

We have stayed there at one their suites and then at one of their their cottages. Both were excellent stays in all ways. The suites and cottages are very clean and everything is arranged with good taste.

What an amazing place to stay in such a small town, it was magical to say the least. There was a massive winter storm moving through the area the night of our stay, which made for a perfect opportunity to turn on the fireplace and snuggle in for a romantic evening. Upon making my reservation staff recommended a place to... More

Trip Advisor didn't show this place on the map. I kept driving past Shelburne to Barrington Passage which had no hotels, motels or cottages. I drove 36km back to Shelburne town to see if there was any vacancies. This place is very nice place to stay in while traveling in Shelburne County during winter.

Extremely accommodating and friendly service! Originally had a double room booked for two nights, and we were upgraded to a beautiful cottage for the same price as nobody was booked in it! Definitely plan on returning
