Located between the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean on the Long Beach Peninsula in Seaview, The Shelburne Inn is surrounded by stunning scenery just minutes away. The Peninsula is known for its 28 miles of sandy beach, festivals, oyster farming, cranberry growing and recreation. Browsing the many antique shops, bookstores, galleries and second-hand places in the Peninsula villages can net some very special “finds,” or take a walk on the beach for a moment of quiet contemplation.
Outdoor activities around Long Beach include clamming (in season), picnicking, surf fishing, golfing, boating, deep-sea fishing, horseback riding on the beach, hiking, wild mushroom hunting, kayaking, and birdwatching.

“Painted a crisp green with white trim, the 15-room Shelburne particularly pleases those who understand the quiet charms of a well-kept, wooden Victorian structure. [Owners] David Campiche and Laurie Anderson are also fine cooks. Before you head out for the day, they’ll serve a complimentary breakfast of fresh salmon omelette, homemade sausage, potatoes sautéed with red onions and garden tarragon and just baked pastries.”
