The Shoreham Inn is a wonderful gem of hospitality on a nice quiet street in a typical small Vermont village. It is an authentic historic building with rough hewn beams, a variety of interesting antique furnishings and memorabilia, and a small comfortable pub/restaurant with a big fireplace. The rooms and bath facilities are fully modernized and equipped. The very friendly and efficient innkeepers, Molly and Dominic, made our overnight stay a highlight of our Vermont biking tour.
Molly has a pretty smile and time for a chat with everyone, yet somehow manages to take care of all guest needs with no muss or fuss. Her husband Dominic is an experienced chef from London and Dublin who really knows how to cook hearty and delicious American meals from local organic ingredients. The portions are generous and the prices are quite affordable. We only wish this pub was located near home so we could go there often for dinner, which many of the local Shoreham residents do. You will love the warm ambience and good cheer of the pub where meals are served. A neighbor's cat, Lily, meets visitors to welcome them, but she is not allowed in the inn.
The Shoreham Inn has a nice side deck porch and a large landscaped yard, as well as lots of comfy places to sit inside. There is not much else happening in Shoreham, but it is close to Lake Champlain and the ferry to NY for Fort Ticonderoga. Also check out the nearby Norton Gallery to meet the friendly artist who makes large wooden art carvings of various animals. The Shoreham Inn features one of his big dog sculptures by its fireplace.
We definitely plan to return, and highly recommend it.
