Our stay at The Cooper's Inn was absolutely wonderful. Our room was very cozy and comfortable with a great Nespreso coffee maker, beautiful clawfooted tub and view of Shelburne Harbour. Amanda was a wonderful host and made amazing breakfasts both mornings. We thoroughly enjoyed our many chats over coffee and feel like she is now a fast friend. Amanda arranged for us to have a delicious dinner at a local restaurant, Charlotte Lane Cafe which was fabulous. We highly recommend both The Cooper's Inn and Charlotte Lane Cafe.

Beautiful , historic B&B. Amanda is the owner, cook & host all in 1. Breakfasts are AMAZING! The Cooper’s breakfast includes 2 eggs, potatoes, toast, choice of ham, sausage, or bacon. Great views too!

Everything well thought through and comfortable. The linens, the breakfast, the garden, the welcome, the quiet - this lovely old inn is top-notch. Combine with a meal at Charlotte Lane restaurant and everything is perfect.

We enjoyed our 2-night stay at this inn on the waterfront of Shelburne. The room was spacious, comfortable, and quiet. The choices for breakfast were all well prepared — a great way to start the day! Be sure to visit the museums that are just a couple of minutes walk from your room.

I stayed at this place for only one night, coming from the Cat Ferry at Yarmouth and arriving late. They were absolutely helping and kind. The room itself was very nice with real antique furniture and oak floor, comfy and clean with nice views to the garden outside. The place is very quiet and just minutes away from the Sandy Point Lighthouse. The breakfast was delicious, and the staff so kind and welcoming. Definitely would recommend

Our room was light, bright and airy with a view of the water. The house has a lovely laid back vibe and Amanda was very welcoming. The 5pm wine social in the garden was a great way to relax and chat to Amanda and the other guests. It was an excellent way to exchange info about where to go and what to do. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at The Cooper's Inn

Centrally located and right on the waterfront. Very clean and up to date. Ample off street parking. Our room was in an annex off the garden. Small but had everything we needed including A/C. Very pleasant young hostess. Breakfast was excellent - three choices; French press coffee.

We had a great stay. Amanda was very friendly and accommodating. The room was nice and bed comfortable. The social hour at5 was an added bonus, it was nice to get to know her a little more. Breakfast was delicious. We’ll definitely be back and would recommend The Coopers Inn to anyone.

Great visit. It is a special place. Our room was small but lovely. The breakfast rooms are sweet and meticulous; the breakfasts were superb. The garden area is lovely, and the Shelburne waterfront (where the Inn is located) is a beautiful step back in time. We loved meeting and talking with Amanda, who has done a great job with the inn.

We only stayed one night at The Coopers Inn and it was the best place we stayed the entire time. The hostess/owner made sure everything was perfect with room comfort, super friendly and helpful, wonderful welcome in the garden for afternoon tea and wine. Very nice breakfast. It was a great location and we were able to walk to dinner then have a nice after dinner stroll on the water. We definitely hope to be back and will highly recommend The Coopers Inn to all of our friends.
