By virtue of our small number of rooms, we can provide exceptional hospitality and a truly bespoke experience encompassing a wide range of guests' needs. The Shortiss, is a place where one should desire to lay down their luggage! Far from the hotel stereotypes, a true-life place where each room was imagined differently, so the traveler can constantly renew his/her experience. Treating yourself to a guest room, feeling at home, unwinding in a relaxing ambiance or taking advantage of all the many activities in the area, the Shortiss offers it all.
Originally built as 'the Shortiss Hotel' in the mid 1800's, it was picked up off its foundation closer to the lake and moved to its current location in the late 1880's. You can still see the quirkiness in the building's slightly skewed front entrance. It has had an extensive history, since then, being turned into a plethora of businesses and residential apartments. But shortly after purchasing it, once we found out the building was originally a hotel when it was first built, we knew we had to return it to its intended purpose. Today, the building has been completely renovated and decorated with our personal taste and passion and with an uncompromising focus on the details and with an eclectic mix of contemporary, vintage, and antique décor items scattered throughout all the spaces.
As one of the oldest buildings on the street, the Shortiss has been designed as a country house, a second home, if you will. It's a place to feel great, a place you won't want to leave, a place where you can't wait to come back to. It’s an intimate house, full of emotions, with a soul, and a story.
The Shortiss is located in the charming town of Beaverton, Ontario, on its historical main downtown Simcoe Street. Conveniently situated among boutique shops and cafes and only a short walk to the shores of Lake Simcoe. In summer relax on the beach with a good book, soak up the sun and take a dip in the water. You will love the location as we are just a short walk to local public beaches. Beach-goers have been spotted wind surfing or kite boarding here on windy days. Rent a boat or seadoo, or bring your own and use the local launch, and enjoy a day on the water! In the winter, the lake does not disappoint. It’s world renowned for the ice fishing and gorgeous views of ice fishing huts sprinkled across the lake. There are many ice fishing excursions that are based right here in the town of Beaverton. The locals are more than happy to offer you the full experience. No matter the season you can always enjoy the most gorgeous sunsets here!
