Thank you for visiting our new website. We look forward to using this blog in the future to highlight events and other special information about the Inn.
Ours is a quiet, little town and especially so in Winter. So, the Shelburne Restaurant & Pub is doing its part to liven things up. We have three regularly scheduled events on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.
On Tuesday nights in the Pub you’ll find crooner, Brian O’Connor singing and playing guitar. Brian’s mellow, soothing voice and nimble fingers create a fun and relaxing atmosphere. His musical selections can be nostalgic, as he covers many of his favorites from the ’60′s. His interpretations of the songs from prior generations breathe new life into them. You just might want to get up and dance. Continue reading

While researching recipes for our Eastern European tea recently, I came across one for a spicy Lithuanian spirit, Krupnikas. Not being a round-the-clock tea-totaller, the recipe intrigued me because of its use of all of the spices we associate with the smells and tastes of the holiday season. I opted to use Vodka instead of 190-proof grain alcohol in the batch I made. I like to photograph my cooking and baking endeavors and as it happened, while I was setting up the photograph below, our local listener supported radio station, KCPB was airing a classical concert program hosted by Alec Baldwin. He happened to be playing the music of eastern European composers as I staged my photo. A little shot of Krupnikas, and all I could hear was the passion of Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Rachmaninoff. Krupnikas is often served slightly heated. Here’s the recipe:
EASTERN EUROPEAN TEA AND MUSIC THIS
SATURDAY, DEC 11TH, 3 – 5 PM
We have two more SpecialTeas remaining in our series of holiday teas,
the Eastern European Tea and the Scandinavian Tea.
This weekend, why not counteract the affects of these dark days of winter
with the soulful tradition of an Eastern European Tea?
Let candlelight, a steaming Samovar brewing satisfying tea, and our selection of delicate savory and sweet treats
warm and lift your spirits this holiday season.
In addition, we’re thrilled to have the young and extraordinarily talented Madison Baker perform
some musical selections acapella during this tea.
Madison will choose some of her favorite songs from her
ever-widening repertoire to suit the occasion.
Long Live the Samovar!
The monumental Russian tribute to tea is the mighty
samovar. The samovar is an adaptation of the 13th
century Mongolian hot pot, and the name means
“self-cooker.” A tea concentrate is brewed in a pot
atop the samovar and it is diluted with hot water
from the urn below it. It is traditional to sweeten the
tea with jam or a sugar lump held between
Please join us in this celebration of the

KATU Television’s Restaurant of the Week traveled to Seaview, Washingtonon November 2nd to record a series of three of these popular culinary features for AM Northwest and for KATU News. The Portland station’s award winning Creative Services Department visited The Depot Restaurant, The Shelburne Inn, Restaurant & Pub, and The 42nd Street Cafe and recorded documentary style segments that featured owners and chefs showcasing the high points of the restaurants, signature menu items, wine selection and restaurants’ atmosphere.
Steve Denari, Director of KATU creative Services had this to say, “Restaurant of the Week has been a tremendous success for both AM Northwest and the restaurants featured in the segments. The concept is simple…viewers get an insider’s look into the kitchens of top local restaurants. The owner or Chef are able to tell their own story and present their favorite dishes and desserts to the audience. One of the biggest compliments we get is how great the dishes look on camera. Using a film style of shooting, our photographer, Bryon Garvin, is able to capture the dishes using very little equipment.” Continue reading
The Shelburne Inn was built in 1896 as a hotel with a dining room.
This year, 2010, marks the 114th year of business for the Shelburne Inn, Restaurant & Pub. It is the oldest continuously operating hotel in Washington State. Many of our guests ask about the details of that history, so we printed up a flyer that offers up some of the Shelburne’s colorful past, though not as colorful as some have imagined–to our knowledge it never was a brothel. It has always been our goal, in any of our projects here at the inn, to maintain the design integrity of the past while accommodating the modern traveler. We’ve run the inn since 1977, and in that time have developed a relationship with it that is more animate than inanimate, or shall we say innanimate? Needless to say, we like old things. When properly cared for, they exude a certain comfort and character that is difficult to recreate in new construction. Here’s a brief history… Continue reading
