    Shelburne Vacation Rentals near JC Williams Dory Shop Museum

    Shelburne vacation rentals are mostly new houses, though a few Shelburne cottages may date as far back as the late 1700s and early 1800s. Surprisingly, in 1784, Shelburne became a haven for individuals fleeing the United States as a result of the Revolutionary War. However, the economy was not stable enough to offer these loyalists homes so they had to move on from Nova Scotia and Cape Breton. Today, visitors to Shelburne beach rentals can visit JC Williams Dory Shop Museum to see artifacts left behind by early settlers, including the loyalists.
