When wearing the other shoe, traveling as Guests, we know good surprises are key to a fulfilling and satisfying escape.


"A fabulous, relaxing, charming location with kind and accommodating hosts. Its clear that they put their heart and soul into their business. Strolling on the waterfront and enjoying the Inn's garden courtyard were highlights. It was so quiet at night! Very comfortable bed. Scrumptious breakfasts with good selection and accommodation for dietary issues." ~ Anne I, Autumn 2021

Tradition is the guiding light, both here at the Inn and in the rich historic nature of greater Shelburne Town, County, and Nova Scotia community.

The Cooper's Inn is not a gracious estate type of home. It is a modest and typically humble dwelling as was generally the case in c1785. It's simple, comfortable and inviting.

When we say B&B or Bed and Breakfast, often we think of the beds. After all a good nights sleep is key. Our sleep sets are replaced regularly with that in mind.

The other 'B' stands for Breakfast. Recognizing and respecting tradition, Cooper's Breakfast Menu reflects the type of cuisine you might have enjoyed while visiting Nova Scotia two or more centuries ago. You'll appreciate contemporary twists along with a vastly local and healthy selection.


Dietary needs and preferences along with a concern for allergies are important considerations. Guests with Gluten Free needs love our menu. Vegetarian and Vegan dietary preferences are addressed as well. Please help us understand your allergies and dietary preferences in advance. Together, we optimize your experience.

The challenges our industry has faced were dramatic in 2020 and 2021. Keeping that in mind please give careful consideration to our 2 to 7 Day Getaway Packages. That's where you'll discover our Best Values and most interesting Experiences. Buy Local. By Local. We do.

Shelburne, Nova Scotia is a remarkable community and region and we feel very privileged to call it and The Cooper's Inn home.

Safe Travels!
