The Shoreham Inn sits right in the village center of Shoreham, VT, a rural community on the west edge of the state near Lake Champlain. It has been open as a bed and breakfast since the ‘70’s, and has had many write-ups in travel books, magazines, and newspapers.
The whole town of Shoreham (including The Shoreham Inn) is featured on Chronicles "Main Streets and Backroads of New England" program (November 2015)
" ...the Shoreham is a favorite spot of bikers. Plop down in one of the Adirondack chairs with a glass of locally made Switchback Ale on tap and you immediately understand the attraction after a day of biking...." Boston Globe June 2, 2013
"Smoke wafted from the chimney, and two benches in front sat empty. I opened the red front door and to my surprise, about a dozen people were inside, waiting for dinner and sipping wine. The warm smell of comfort food wafted from the restaurant. The inn was exactly what I had imagined: creaky wooden floors, wood-beamed ceilings and a living room with cozy couches and a piano." New York Times October 18, 2009
"The Shoreham Inn has an excellent restaurant. The menu changes frequently, but has included top-notch burgers, whole baked fish and an array of interesting desserts such as Banoffi pie, a banana, cream and toffee concoction" Wall Street Journal July 16, 2009
The Inn over 220 years old. It is a true country inn that maintains its aged charm of creaky, uneven floors and steep staircases. There is a main sitting room on the first floor as well as a pub, which offers a full bar and light snack to in-house guests.
All of the rooms in the main house are located on the second and third floors. The rooms are quaint, yet comfortable, and each is uniquely decorated with its own private en suite bathroom, as well as individual air-conditioning units during warmer months. While there are no televisions in the inn, there is free wi-fi throughout the house. There are also plenty of games, puzzles, books and magazines that can be enjoyed in the main sitting room, sitting by the fireplace during the winter, or outside on the deck in the summer.
