Let the Games Begin!

It all starts in Nova Scotia's Shelburne County.

Pack your Imagination. Pick your Toys from The Cooper's 'trunk'.

Let the games begin.... You'll arrive at The Cooper's Inn B&B in Shelburne, NS on the shore of world renowned Shelburne Harbour.

Check in before 5PM. Social Hour in the Garden runs from 5 to 6 PM ... good weather conditions ~ anticipated.

Social Hour is a great way to connect with other Guests, your Hosts, Community insights an often much more. It's your first opportunity to settle  into the 'calming' experience so often celebrated in Nova Scotia's historic Shelburne Town and County.

You'll relate to the story of the Tortoise and the Hare...that was pretty fast when compared to the pace of the Shelburne Submarine Races.

After Social Hour you'll likely wander along Dock Street to take in the views and decide on an eatery for your evening meal.

Sunsets are remarkable here. And full moons stunning. Or capture the  Clouds if the weather dictates. Keep your camera near at hand.

Place your breakfast order before 9 this evening. Will your breakfast appetizer be an early morning stroll? Breakfast dining is just the beginning of tomorrow's fun....

Cooper Loves Picnics

A Shore Thing is a trip to one or more of Shelburne County's  local beaches....right after breakfast.


Your Cooper's Picnic will be packed for the occasion. {it's part of the package}. You'll need to keep hydrated and energized.

For the kid in you there's a Kite packed with your picnic...no assembly required...just a fair beach breeze and you'll be up, up and away.  A day to dream and play.

When your Kite needs a rest it may be the time to take in your Taproom Experience at Boxing Rock Brewing Company.

...taste the differences..

Taproom Experiences are available at 2, 3 and 4 PM, and  advance booking is required.  Linger after 5PM and you may miss the  Race at the Inn.

Today's Submarine Race, aka Social Hour, is simply the warm up for your evening's activities. Will a  Kayak Tour on the Harbour be part of your plan? Watch for those submarines...

The 'calming' you feel can't be purchased. Dinner and Sunset experiences rarely disappoint.

Yes, your daily plans are flexible. It is Your Getaway.

Add Local History

Rain isn't required to call it a 'rain day'. Roll with your freedom.

Visit Shelburne's Museums by the Sea, check out the Black Loyalist Heritage Centre....discover the Acadian Village in West Pubnico or perhaps the natural history and calming sense found in our parks and along our shores.

Options abound: Birders may 'plover'...Artists discover...photo ops to explore....or a good book ...there's always more.

Is that your Kite calling?

Lunch choices abound. A picnic option works too.


Yes the Submarine Races happen every day, no matter the weather...some come early to observe the warm up laps.

Reward yourself with a special meal today. Lobster Boil, Fine and Casual Feast,

or use the voucher to extend your stay another day....

Today's Social Hour is simply one option. Any schedule is  flexible. Will this be the time for a walk in the Park? Islands Park is just across from the inn and affords great Town views too.

Celebrate the Calm

Will you shift gears into 'relaxation' mode right away? Some of us  take a little longer.

Camera in your Hand. Yes

Phone placed back on the Night Stand or stowed in the Dashboard. Yes


Sometimes we really have to 'disconnect' before we 'reconnect'. Shelburne Town and County are often the most effective presciption. A combination of mind and body therapy.                    


Petangue... Beach rematch?

Today may be a hiking or biking day. There are 2 Bikes available for our Inn-Spired Guests.

Boxing Rock.jpg

Wander at will or choose from a number of  routes. Low to moderately challenging has a good sound to it. {...there are helmets too.}

Did someone say Whirligig?

Today you might paint and assemble your new Whirligig. 'Shelburne Submarine Cooper', aka SS Cooper in your colours...

Everybody gets bragging rights at The Cooper's Inn. Captain your Sub, wherever you please.

Don't forget. Daily plans are flexible. It IS Your Getaway.
