My wife and I are touring Nova Scotia on our motorbikes, we came to rest at this magnificent inn. We could not be more pleased, the owners welcomed us with a social hour and we met all our fellow travellers. The room we stayed in was on the third floor, you need to walk up, but it is well worth... More

There can't be many 220-year-old B&Bs in Canada, and staying here is like a gift you give yourself. The inn is part of the colonial streetscape, and if you stay upstairs in the front part of the house, you can almost touch the cars driving by on the one-way lane below....but all was very quiet. The inn compound includes a... More

We love this B&B. In the historic waterfront of Shelburne, Cooper's Inn is a great place to stay on the South Shore. We take day trips easily from here, but also spend time in Shelburne. Pat & David are wonderful hosts and they offer great selections for breakfast - hot, cold and even gluten-free, all delicious! Late afternoon wine in... More

Just spent the weekend with a group of friends here, and we all were favourably impressed. The private garden, the warm hospitality, the lovely rooms, the bedside ginger cookies, the great breakfast, and especially the Nova Scotian Wine Happy Hour....thank you Pat and David for your attention to details!!

From groups to solo travelers we want you o enjoy your visit, no matter how brief. That being said, a day is rarely enough. The Social Hour is the highlight of our day too. It gives each of us the opportunity to get know know a bit about one another. And there's a chance to share how and why Shelburne... More

What is there not to love about the Cooper's Inn!! Our overnite stay here was more than anyone would ever expect! Pat and David are the ultimate hosts......from fresh homemade cookies for us in our room, to sharing a glass of wine with other guests on the charming patio, to our beautifully appointed guest room, to an exquisite creative breakfast...

My husband and I had the sincere pleasure of spending one evening at the Cooper's Inn B&B in Shelburne, Nova, Scotia. This historic property, hailing back to 1784, is inviting and truly lovely. Our room, the Joseph McGill Room offered a private exterior entrance, very comfortable and nicely appointed room with a comfortable bed. The room is situated on a... More

We're going to mention the breakfast first because it is indicative of the way the owners run the inn. Huge care and creativity go into every item and aspect of the breakfast, so that it's not just in fact far beyond what you would expect, it's a top notch meal that would be worth seeking out as a fine dining...

Beautiful historic building & fantastic hosts. Such a warm welcome, even a handwritten notecard in my room. I would recommend this b&b 100%. Breakfast was incredible. Do walk around this historic town. It's small but full of charm & history.

It is difficult to put into words how great this place is. My wife and I stayed one night and enjoyed every moment. The fabulous room, happy hour in the garden, fantastic breakfast and very gracious hosts. Add this place to your bucket list and go there soon.
