My husband and I stayed at the Shelburne for two nights mid-week. The only thing I can say negative about this place is the lack of personal attention that we typically receive at smaller bed and breakfast inns. However, with17 (I think) guest rooms, it is hard for the owners to be that up close and personal, and for what it's worth, we did have a chance to visit with David at dinner and also the next morning at breakfast.
Our room was small, but that was fine with us. It was decorated in blue and white with bead board paneling on the walls, also painted blue. It was very fresh looking and very clean. I did not enjoy getting in and out of the clawfoot tub in our bathroom, so after the first morning I opted for a shower. My husband had no complaints about the tub. We did notice a lot of traffic noise and hollering outside on the street later at night than is acceptable, but that was not the fault of the establishment. When you stay in a town as opposed to the country you have to expect that sort of thing. It only bothered us one night.
The breakfasts were very good (except for the chef's penchant for putting mushrooms in almost every dish). Not being a fan of mushrooms, my choices on the menu were limited. But the food was excellent and we always left well satisfied. We also had dinner at the their restaurant one of the nights we were there, and the food was good except that my salmon was partially raw in the middle. I don't know whether it was supposed to be that way or not, but I like my fish cooked all the way through!
We would probably stay here again the next time we are in the area.
