Accommodations
The Innkeepers designed this suite around the lovely 19th century leaded glass surround pictured. The bathroom features a large claw-foot tub with a brass shower unit. Guests of our suite enjoy the option of having our gourmet breakfast brought to them in the privacy of their sitting room. "Many travelers take one of the Shelburne's antique garden rooms, fuel upon the robust breakfast, and spend the day on the long nearby beaches." Esquire. China Beach Retreat is an additional off-site property with three guest rooms, all featuring views of the mouth of the Columbia River. "Oh the joy! Ocian in view!" Merriwether Lewis, 1805.
Breakfast
Each morning guests savor the complimentary and renowned Innkeepers' Country Breakfast, served daily in the antique-furnished Lobby. A verbal menu changes each morning to reflect what is fresh and in season. Herbs from the garden enhance many of the preparations. Typical morning fare might include a fresh Willapa Bay Oyster Hangtown Fry, Razor Clam Fritters with poached eggs, Smoked Salmon Omelette with local watercress, and the Innkeeper's Sourdough Pancakes topped with fresh local berries. "The Shelburne is filled with warmth--from both fireside and friendship...The breakfasts are said to be the best in the entire Pacific Northwest...The inn is north of the Columbia River and only a breath from the longest beach in North America--a photographer's dream, with lighthouses, bluffs, jetties." Los Angeles Times
Dining
The Shoalwater Restaurant, located in the Inn is heralded as one of America's culinary treasures. It bases its cuisine on an abundance of fresh, locally harvested foods. The Shoalwater also offers an extensive, award-winning wine list which emphasizes wines of the Northwest. The adjacent Heron and Beaver Pub features lighter fare, espresso, hand-mixed cocktails, and a thirst-quenching selection of Northwest specialty beers and wines by the glass. "The Inn's Shoalwater Restaurant has stirred up Pacific Northwest cuisine...If you can't wait until dinner, get started with one of the best breakfasts anywhere." Travel & Leisure
Local Attractions
Located between the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean on the Long Beach Peninsula, The Shelburne Inn is surrounded by stunning scenery, just a short walk from the inn's front door. The Peninsula, an unspoiled 28-mile stretch of wild Pacific Coast known as the longest, continuous beach in the United States, is a natural paradise complete with bird sanctuaries, lighthouses, and panoramic vistas. Willapa Bay, just east of the Inn, is a pristine haven for waterfowl, and Ilwaco's nearby docks provide access to sport fishing for the famous Pacific salmon and white sturgeon. "Long overdue for a weekend alone, my husband and I managed to escape to the Washington coast. Never mind that winter was still firmly entrenched. The poignant solitude that inhabits a seaside town in the off-season seemed just right for our plans, which beyond sleeping late, were vague and potentially at odds; He was looking for adventure; I was hoping for romance. We found both at the Shelburne Inn." AAA Journey Magazine
Of Special Interest
Just 5 miles from The Shelburne Inn, at the culmination of the Lewis and Clark Discovery Trail, China Beach Retreat nestles in a small cove and is the perfect place to unwind. Each room has a spa tub and a stunning view of the mouth of the Columbia River. "Imagine waking to views of the very spot where Lewis and Clark first reached the Pacific Ocean in 1805 from safe inside this charming Craftsman cottage. China Beach Retreat is a very special place, lovingly transformed into an intimate three-bedroom hideaway." Karen Brown's Guides, Charming Places to Stay: Pacific Northwest
