Exceptional Garden Omelet, seasoned well with herbs, fresh vegetables just right for my palate. Wonderful conversation with the owner! Enjoyed the grounds and watching the paddle tennis championship matches. We wish Shelter Harbor Inn success. A beautiful spot near many ocean joys!

This is an actual historic-quality inn...w/ a wonderful restaurant and large bar for socializing. The food is very good and the restaurant offers a varied menu w/ emphasis on New England comfort food. Go, enjoy the traditional atmosphere, easy parking, central location, beautiful grounds, and the good eats & drinks.

Really did not enjoy our stay at the Shelter Harbor Inn. I rarely give 1 star ratings but this really was one of our worst stays anywhere in the world. First of all, while the main floor of the inn is definitely charming, the rooms are extremely outdated. Though I must say the hotel was clean so no complains on...

If you've ever seen the movie White Christmas, or (better) Holiday Inn, you will know that even in the 1940's the rural New England inn was considered anachronistic, and not many survive with their charm and idiosyncrasy intact. As of October, 2016, I am pleased to report that the Shelter Harbor Inn is still its charming, if idiosyncratic, self. My...

This is a hard review to write. On one hand the staff was great, the room was clean and quiet, and the food was great. On the down side, the room was small, the bed was small and the doors were very low. I hit my head going into the bathroom and I'm only 6' 2". The other problem I...

Upon our arrival, we found that the room we booked was double booked, and we had to be relocated to a room on the third floor, which was ok, but not what we expected. We later found that the people who got our original room had to change their room as well, since their a/c broke. There were stairs up...

We have been coming here for a week in August for 13 years. It used to be great; a local gem. But gone was the life and community it used to provide. This summer we booked our room months in advanced, as it used to be so busy in August, but this time barely anyone was there. The complimentary breakfast...

We paid 225.00 for one night in room 13 in the barn. The room was tiny. Not anything like the pictures made it look. It was also very old and musty smelling. Apparently the built in AC/heat unit was broken, because their was a tiny window unit that was filthy and rattled and did not work very well. It was...

My husband and I booked 4 days over the fourth of July weekend and will not return to the Shelter Harbor Inn. It appears the Inn may have been a great experience in the past. However, the property has been neglected and needs painting and staining inside and out. The grounds are unkempt. The hot tub was disgusting and should...
