Cooper's Inn is a carefully preserved and very well maintained 18th century house with a contemporary addition that blends well with the historic character of the original home. My wife and I stayed in an upstairs room with a bow-windowed extension, that afforded wonderful views over the garden below, as well as down the waterfront street of historic buildings, and out across the harbor and far up to the mouth of the harbor - spectacular views.
The rooms have been very carefully and attentively restored and converted to comfortable and spacious accommodation for guests, and furnished with wingback chairs, secretary desks that hide flatscreen television sets, comfortable beds and good bedside lighting for reading. The innkeepers go to the extra effort of placing a handwritten note of welcome, along with a small bottle of wine and biscuits in the room for arriving guests.
Breakfast is served at separate tables in the downstairs dining room, and offers a wide variety of choices. The fruit platters, as well as the bacon and eggs dishes we ordered, were beautifully prepared and presented by the friendly innkeepers, along with a plunger pot of coffee, that was cheerfully re-filled.
Cooper's Inn deserves great praise for its outstanding ambience and comfort and for its wonderful location on the historic waterfront of Shelburne.
I regard it as a model for what a small inn in a historic area should be - and highly recommend it.
