Very clean, comfortable,affordable. Owners and staff are very accommodating. excellent breakfast available. Close to resturants, tourism attractions and water front. If you stay here I highly reccomend Charlotte Lane cafe for supper. This is the only place I'll stay in Shelburne.

I can't say enough about this little gem. We were there for three nights and rented the Cosby Cottage. It was fair value for you monies, the cottage was so clean and if it didn't have everything we needed they were quick to give it to us when asked. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The breakfast was superior... More

Friendly staff, average but clean room with small bathroom and an excellent breakfast with home baked bread and scones, good coffee. Wifi was poor in our room but reception staff let me leave my laptop in reception overnight to download some data from my office. No problems with download then of 1.5GB

We stayed in Cottage number 6 and was pleasantly surprised with the size, it was large, clean and comfortable. Ideal for 2 couples travelling, as it has two bedrooms, a private deck and barbecue. Basic cutlery and dinnerware provided. Lots of extra towels in the washroom, full size fridge, nicely decorated

We stayed in a cottage which is very compact..so much so that the bathroom door doesn't completely open. Everything is a bit of a tight fit, but well kept and very clean. It was nice to be able to enjoy a glass of wine on the chairs and table provided on the front porch. Being early risers we didn't take... More
