We stayed one night at this lovely inn in the off-season (mid-April). We were offered our choice of several rooms with private baths, each decorated a little differently but all lovingly restored and befitting a quaint inn. It turns out that this is the oldest continuously operating inn in Washington state. Our hosts were gracious, and the tavern on site was obviously popular with the locals for casual dining. We opted for the inn's restaurant, and were extremely pleased with the food and service. I enjoyed a wonderful oyster omelet for breakfast the next day, and am happy to give this inn a 5-star endorsement.

Room Tip: All the rooms have something to offer; quieter away from the street, old floors squeak a little, and you have to carry your luggage upstair.

Fun, unique stay. Walking distance from Long Beach---best firework display ever!!! Wouldn't want to stay in LB bc of fireworks going off all night, so it was a perfect location as far as getting a quiet, good nights sleep. Breakfast was tastey, but not what people built it up to be. Noticed guests from all over US!! Really enjoyed of France-themed room!

Wine, gourmet dining, antiques, art, hand-made one-of-a-kind pottery pieces (created by one of the hotel owners), and a stunning alto vocals (created by the other hotel owner)—I experienced a beautiful weekend at the Shelburne Inn in Sea View Washington. In an era of recession and frugality, owners Laurie and David purchased an artist quality grand piano and bring local and regional pianists in to play. In this bed and breakfast, beauty, art, and graciousness are not buzzwords; they are the natural result of lives devoted to hospitality and the finer things of life. I came in a weekend pianist, eager to play my Friday and Saturday night gigs; I went home a member of the Shelburne “family.”

Room Tip: They're all great rooms!

We love the Shelburne and try to stay there at least twice a year for special occasions, e.g. anniversary etc., or when we just need to get away. The food is wonderful, the rooms charming and the innkeepers two of the nicest people you'd hope to meet.. This is a real treasure.

Room Tip: China Beach, is a secluded hideaway

After reading several of Trip Advisor's reviews we were expecting it to be nothing but excellent. We, however, found the size of the rooms in this historic inn to be extremely small. My wife and I only had two small bags but there was no room anywhere except on the bed to open the bags. Even with a small double bed there was very little room to move around except sideways. And then there was no room to set toiletries near the sink. We were there with friends. They arrived first so we were given the room next to theirs.
We also stayed at the Shelburne due to the raves about the restaurant, and yes, it was fantastic! The sturgeon was to die for.

Room Tip: There were rooms with queen beds. Request one.
