During our 8,000 km trip around Canada's maritime provinces this summer, finding this inn was certainly a happy accident. We had planned to visit Shelburne, N.S. but did not plan on staying there. We actually had reservation out of town, but upon seeing The Cooper's Inn, we had to ask if there was a room available. Luck was with us as they had one vacancy which as soon as we saw it, we snapped up and cancelled our previous reservation.

The inn is situated in a heritage property (ca. 1785) and is very competently run but Paul and Pat Dewar. Our room was very comfortable and clean and provided everything we needs for a great stay. We also found a complimentary bottle of Nova Scotia wine, cookies and chocolates waiting for us. Paul recommended that we make reservations at Lothar's Cafe in town, it being the best place to eat and tended to fill up quickly. We took his advice and were not disappointed. The meal there was excellent and reasonably priced. The Mocha cheesecake was the perfect end to the meal!

Breakfast was included with the room and was the best we had on our trip this year. The full menu is on their web site, thecoopersinn.com, but let me just say that the selection is great, the presentation was perfect and the quality was high.

We were very pleased with the accommodations and breakfast and consider it to be an excellent value. We have no hesitation in recommending this inn and will certainly stay there again, given the opportunity.

My boyfriend and I traveled along the Evangeline trail staying at inns and B&Bs, and this was the nicest one we stayed at.

The inn is located in the historic district of charming Shelburne right across the street from the harbor. There is a barrel-making factory between the inn and the water, but the inn has great water views on either side of the building. The inn has private garden with plenty of available seating. We greatly enjoyed sitting in the garden to play cards and read. There are also benches right across the street along the shore to sit and watch the boats and ducks go by.

We stayed in the McGill room, on the second floor of the "Cooperage" section of the building. Although we were in the rear of the building, we had a great view of the water out our window. The room was a little on the cozy side, but nicely decorated and very clean. We really appreciated all the extra touches that went into making our stay more enjoyable: robes hanging in the closet, complimentary wine, chocolate, and biscuits, and a handwritten note welcoming both of us by name.

Breakfast was amazing, easily the best breakfast we had all trip. The hostess started us off with our own french press of coffee, cranberry juice and fresh-squeezed orange juice, and a basket of warm, delicious muffins. They serve a variety of items, including yogurt, fresh fruit, eggs, french toast, pancakes, and breakfast sandwiches. They are very accommodating and guests are welcome to order as many items as they would like or include special requests.

We really loved this inn and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

We just returned from a 10 day driving tour around the Lighthouse and Evangeline Routes. Our 4th night (May 30) was spent at the Coopers Inn B&B. This is a Registered Heritage Property built around 1785. I reserved the Thomas Crowell Room which is dockside and overlooks a barrel making barn and the river. The room has a nice bay window with a seating area and queen size bed complete with a small bottle of red wine and a selection of biscuits and chocolates. Pat Dewar (owner) prepared us the best french toast breakfast I've ever had - do not miss! Apparently, just about everything opens in Shelburne after June 1st; so if you are planning on seeing the museums and other attractions, come after that date. Have Pat make you dinner reservations as there are only 2 restaurants in town. This is an above average B&B and we would definitely stay here again. Cost - $135 +13%tax per night.

We only stayed one night, but wish we could have spent a week. The room was very large and bright. The location was incredible, right on the bay. This Inn is a Heritage property and each room feels like you are back in time. We could go on and on about the breakfast and the very nice couple, Pat and Paul that were our hosts. But if you are going to the wonderful little town of Shelburne, try this inn.
