A pretty little Inn within a lovely landscape. The Inn had plenty of areas to read and relax in. We stayed in the cottage with gas fireplace - nice & cozy & warm. Bed very comfortable and an excellent, roomy bathroom. There is dining at the Inn, but we had cheese & bread at the bar which had the most comfortable bar chairs we have ever experienced. The place is under new mgmt and looks really good. Peter the bartender was excellent and very knowledgeable (we talked the wine/cheese/etc tariffs on EU products. The rating would have been a 5, but for the continental breakfast. A few things were missing, jam / butter. Carbo heavy, but the yogurt parfait was quite good. Our point is that it is newly reopened and the breakfast piece was still being thought through. No one to talk with to fix. We certainly would go back. Otherwise, an outstanding hidden gem in a stunning neighborhood (an old artist colony w/great architecture.

Just had lunch with friends . Arrived with reservation , place was empty! Wanted to eat in main dining room since sunroom is quite noisy. Told private party was in there! Private party was one table of diners! Really? Made us feel insignificant. So hopeful but definite changes needed. Menus extremely limited . Food is OK, not special. Decor very eclectic and overcrowded. Dark and nothing New England about it. Rooms lovely. New owner needs to make some changes to make a success of this landmark. Better menu, better dressed staff and get rid of the clutter.

Dear Travellady, Thank you, we do appreciate your feedback. As you are aware we just opened the restaurant 2 weeks ago; so after speaking with the restaurant manager about your visit, we had 2 private parties in the dining room and no one in the sunroom at the time of your reservation. We seated you in the sunroom so you would not be bothered by the noise of the dining room. Sorry for the inconvenience. We would like to know why your meal was ok? We hope you will give us another chance and we do appreciate all comments. Please give me a call at the hotel to discuss this matter. 401-322-8883 Sincerely, Kim

A neglected old Inn in need of major renovation, the staff of the Shelter Harbor Inn did a tremendous job in handling a large wedding party for a weekend. Only open for a week, there were a few kinks with heating and our guest room wasn’t completely furnished. But the decor overall was delightfully eclectic, the bathroom was top notch, complete with heated floor, and the staff was very accommodating. I look forward to returning when they have been up and running for a while.

We can’t thank Shelter Harbor Inn management & staff enough for the absolutely stellar service they provided to us and our guests over our wedding weekend. The Inn recently (1-2 weeks ago!) reopened after change in ownership, management and extensive renovations. We were expecting some kinks due to this being a new venture for them, but there were none! The food was excellent and the staff fantastic. Our guests were comfortable and taken care of and they reported the rooms were gorgeous. Thanks for such a special weekend! We would happily schedule future events there and wholeheartedly recommend overnight stays!

In looking for a place for my husband and I to spend one overnight near Charlestown, RI, I came across Shelter Harbor Inn, and, boy-oh-boy was I confused by the huge swing in the reviews, so let me try and clear things up. Here is the real lowdown: Obviously, this hotel must have been a hot mess before, but whether the owners are new or are just redoing the place from top to bottom, it is all fabulousness now! The vibe is super cool and super eclectic. (In fact, how the designers made all those colors and styles work together is beside me, but it is total eye candy for any fan of interior design.) The rooms are modest in size, but also really fun design-wise with comfortable bedding and appointments. And the service is top-notch. Clearly, we were early adopters as the construction was still ongoing, although in final stages, but Kathryn at the front desk and manager Michael really went out of their way to make sure everything was just right for us, including arranging an early breakfast since we had to leave before they normally serve. The restaurant and bar were not open yet -- I believe that happens on Oct. 1 -- but I feel confident that both of those will be just as delightful as the hotel. Give the new rendition of this hotel a chance. I think you will be very glad you did!
