Description: The Historic Shelter Harbor Inn was originally a 200 acre farm built around 1810. In 1911, the farmstead was purchased by a musician and established as a colony for musicians called Musiccolony. Over the years the farmhouse, barn & carriage house gradually transitioned into what is now a charming New England inn located in a serene setting of beautiful gardens and stone walls. The 24 guest room inn and restaurant offers comfort, relaxation, and good food in a warm and inviting atmosphere and is only minutes from local area attractions and our private beach in Weekapaug. Using only the freshest of season ingredients and a variety of cuisines, our chefs take pride in creating the inn's menus. The restored farmhouse boasts a tavern with a full service bar, several dining areas with fireplaces, a cozy library, private rooms, patios, and decks. Guests may enjoy good food and drink whether sitting by a fire, dining outside, or lounging by the rooftop hot tub.

Reviewed May 19, 2012

I have stayed here before and am going back again next week. The atmosphere is quaint casual sophistication. Such a charming place and beautiful when all the flowers are in bloom. The restaurant is spectacular. Wish I was in the ares more often.

“Nice But...”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

The incense in the lobby and dinning area was overpowering. Who's Idea was That. I kinda ruined a good meal . Just Get rid of That and you would get 5 Stars.

Nice quaint Inn. Their professional croquet courts make sitting back and watching a nice, relaxing way to enjoy a warm day. Restaurant is top-notch.

“Very good food, but”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

There are some outstanding items on the menu at Shelter Harbor. The Italian sausage with grapes and mashed potatoes sounds odd, but it is absolutely a winner. The soups are killer, and the Indian pudding for dessert is phenomenal! The venue is nice, not spectacular. It is the service that stops this review from being off the charts. It is certainly eager and friendly, but it has to be said that it is also slow and uneven. I have never eaten there without a wait. Not a well-paced wait between courses... a "glance at you watch frequently - what's keeping them" kind of wait. Having said that, I will eat there again and again - the food is that good, and you should too!
