#1 of 3 B&Bs / Inns in Shoreham
Travelers' Choice
The Inn is a 200 year old building. It is a true country inn that maintains its aged charm of creaky, uneven floors and steep staircases. There is a main sitting room on the first floor as well as a pub, which offers dinner five nights a week. All of the rooms in the main house are located on the second and third floors. The rooms are quaint yet comfortable, and each is uniquely decorated with its own private in-room bathroom, as well as individual air-conditioning units during warmer months. While there are no televisions in the inn, there is free wi-fi throughout the house. There are also plenty of games, puzzles, books and magazines that can be enjoyed in the main sitting room, sitting by the fireplace in the pub during the winter, or outside on the deck in the summer. The Shoreham Inn is a member of the Vermont Green Business Program. As a Green Hotel, we offer eco-friendly amenities, and employ practices that are more sustainable for the environment.

I’m about to fall asleep in a beautifully converted 185-year-old sheep barn, complete with timbered ceilings. My husband is next to me and our dog is in her bed at our feet. Dinner was steak and mashed potatoes in the pub in the main house. Nothing spectacular, but good and filling. Excellent pie; even better local Middlebury ale. Before I arrived, the owners set out two stainless steel dog bowls for my old puppy in our room. Even the dog had a fine time; she got to explore the pretty little meadow behind the barn. After a very long day, one couldn’t ask for better. Since this is a colonial-era property, the exterior of the buildings are old and thus imperfect. There are no televisions in the rooms, just like there aren’t televisions at many inns and bed-and-breakfasts. Anybody expecting flawless floors or large screens should look elsewhere and leave the unique inns to those of us who appreciate peace and quiet. Contrary to information in other reviews, at least one of the sheep barn rooms is fully accessible, with the bed on the ground floor and a large accessible bathroom. There’s a kitchen area with a bar sink, miniature fridge, microwave, dishes, and drawers thoughtfully outfitted with cutlery, dishcloths, and more. Visitors may feel like the odd man out when the pub is full of locals. (We were thoughtfully seated away from them so that we could have a quiet dinner to ourselves.). I’d hoped to call the inn in advance of checking in but got delayed on the road. Arriving during the busy dinner hour was disadvantageous; one of the regulars saw that I was waiting to check in (making eye contact with me more than once) and yet wouldn’t stop talking to the owners. When you’re exhausted, a five-minute wait can feel much longer. But the owner was beyond attentive during dinner, and she stepped outside to chat with me afterwards (and be sweet to my dog). One or two things would make the place flawless: individual complimentary toiletries instead of the soap-and-shampoo dispenser; a citronella candle or something similar on the patio to ward off the early-summer mosquitos; bath towels that have more heft to them. These are quibbles, though. I can’t wait to see what breakfast is like. And I am definitely coming back here.

My husband, daughter and I stayed in the Sheep Barn on the property of the Inn while our older daughter participated in a four day swim meet at Middlebury College. The room was spacious, comfortable and updated. The main house was cozy and the breakfast was delicious! Each morning, we had fresh baked goods and a homemade breakfast to order. The owners were very friendly and accommodating hosts, who proved that there are still very kind people in this world! We look forward to visiting again!

I was driving through a snowstorm recently and due to the snow and bad road conditions I settled in for this bed and breakfast. The owners were super helpful and friendly. The Inn was a charming 200 year old place with lots of architectural character. Their food was good and the homemade maple icecream was top notch! It was totally Vermont and I would go again.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here while traveling through VT, NH and upstate NY. Shoreham is a very small town and you are about 20 minutes from Middlebury so there are limited places to eat nearby. We ate dinner in the pub downstairs in the Inn one night and it was very good. As others have said, this is a 1790s era building with narrow steep stairs, creaky wooden floors, etc but the room had a nice modern bathroom with shower and a very comfy fed. There are no TVs anywhere but wifi is available. The pub is downstairs and you have breakfast there. The breakfasts were very good. There were two choices for breakfast "main course" each day (eggs however you want them, pancakes, French toast, etc) along with other items like home made banana bread and yogurt, granola, fruit, cereal, etc. The hosts were very nice and it was nice being out in the country. They are only a short drive from the ferry over to Ticonderoga NY and the Champlain Orchard. A nice place to stay and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Loved everything about this historic B&B...the beautiful exterior, the steep staircases, the sloping wooden floors, the warm and cozy bar. Most of all, the Inn Owners, Elizabeth and Andrew were amazing. So friendly and giving of their time - loved chatting with them and learning lots about Vermont and the inns and outs of running a B&B. The dinner and breakfast were delicious too!! Such a unique experience - loved it!
