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.

Wonderful ambiance, food and service. Portions are adequate, selection of entrees covers surf and turf.

Beverage selection, including wines is excellent.

We booked a party of 11 on a weekend for an anniversary dinner. We were on time and were seated right away in a beautiful dining room. Our server did not come over or approach us for 20 minutes. When she finally did she came with water but did not take drink orders. During the entire meal she was non existent. The side adjacent to us was another large party who appeared to have a great waitress who was very attentive. Apparently we got the wrong waitress! Food was good however when we complained to management about our service NOTHING improved or was done to make it more accommodating. Not sure I would go back based on lack of service and management skills.

The Shelter Harbor Inn is a gem. It always reminds me of the dining rooms at an exclusive country club. Always good food and good service. Make a reservation, it will be crowded!

The Shleter Harbor offers delightful fare in a charming setting. I find going there on a chilly winter night for a cocktail and a bowl of their signiture lobster bisque. I am a chonically picky eater and I always find a litle something here to excite my taste buds

Another great meal from the chefs at shelter harbor. PEI mussels in a coconut green curry broth with artichokes and hearts of palm. Dynamite. Seared yellowfin tuna with a kale and Brussels sprout medley and a sweet Thai soy glaze. Tasted like it was caught that morning. Great meal overall and kudos to the kitchen for another great time
