We invite you to experience the charm and graciousness of our Award Winning Registered Heritage Property (c1784) built just one year after the original Loyalists stepped ashore in Shelburne Harbour and created a town from the wilderness.
Located in the historic waterfront area of Shelburne, Nova Scotia, the Cooper’s Inn offers QUALITY ACCOMMODATION WITH PRIVATE BATHS AND SUMPTUOUS FULL BREAKFAST EACH MORNING.
The Cooper’s Inn is within easy reach of fine beaches, harbour tours, the pristine Roseway River system, a riverside golf course and the Shelburne historical museum complex.
For the history buff, our Bed & Breakfast Inn is situated on Shelburne's Walking Tour and across the street from an active cooper's shop, The Barrel Factory, where the craft is still practiced.
The house was built in 1784 by the Loyalist George Gracie, a merchant a ship-owner from Boston. He went on to sit as a representative in the first Legislative Assembly in Nova Scotia. For more information see The History of the Inn here.
Over the years the Inn has been the home of mariners, shipbuilders, gentlemen esquires,
merchants and of course, coopers.
The Cooper's Inn is not only your home while here, but our home as well. The Inn has been lovingly restored and maintains the best of yesteryear but with all of today's modern amenities and the only Hotel on the Waterfront.
Dollar for Dollar the Cooper's Inn is your best Accommodation value in Shelburne and our Discounts and Packages offer even more savings.
