It was a very special trip "home" to the Berkshires from Los Angeles. After being away for over 15 years, to return for the 4th of July weekend at Tangelwood was a dream for me. For my husband and 7 year old son to find it as perfect as I did made the trip better than I ever expected. Bob and Mary are delightful people and their sheltie Annie was a perfect hostess. We have recommended this place to everyone who is planning a trip to the Berkshires. The Inn was clean and lovely, well designed for comfort and convenience and we were absolutely pampered.
We enjoyed our stay and plan to return as soon as we can.

We found the Shaker Mill Inn as a base for a wedding celebration for ourselves and several family members. The Inn is tucked into the quaint village of West Stockbridge and the place is more of a jewel than anything else--the rooms are quite large, beautifully decorated (not in New England Chintz but much more tasteful) and the attention to detail is quite incredible (e.g. umbrella standing in the door if it rained, etc.). The rooms seem to have all been recently done and are well fitted out with microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, TV, DVD player, etc. The breakfast was a bit different than a typical B&B with the food delivered to your room and the owners quite willing to adapt to our needs.

The owners, Bob and Mary were extremely accommodating before and during our stay--they treated us as if we were long time friends or family--attentive to all our needs and very pleasant to talk with.

The location is quite good especially for Tanglewood, Lenox, Stockbridge and Great Barrington-all within a scenic 15 minute ride or less.

We plan on returning and found this place to be one of the best values we've experienced.

My wife and I just returned from a two night stay in the Berkshires and had the pleasure and good fortune of staying at the Shaker Mill Inn. The owners, Bob and Mary Thibeault have put theirs hearts and souls into this wonderful place and it shows. Tirelessly (and I mean tirelessly) working into the night to make your stay as perfect as possible, everything is thought of and anticipated right down to the smallest detail. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, an immaculate room that was as well-appointed as any we've stayed in with a small dinette, kitchenette, living area (with couch and fireplace), king sized bed and gorgeous bathroom with jacuzzi. A basket of muffins, scones, bagels and, occasionally quiche, is placed in the room (and the refrigerator) for the next morning. The Inn is dog friendly and welcomed our pup, Mollie, with open arms, a doggy basket (with towels and blankets and treats), tons of dog toys for playing on the property and lots of help finding places to eat and hike with the pup. The Inn is also close to everything (Stockbridge, Lenox and Tanglewood) but far away enough to afford a respite at the end of the day. Altogether a wonderful, wonderful experience. Whether traveling with a dog or not, the Inn is a terrific place to be your home while you explore the Berkshires. We definitely recommend you give this wonderful place and these wonderful people a call.

Wonderful experience at the Shaker Mill Inn, West Stockbridge, MA. Bob and Mary were wonderful hosts, very comfortable accommodations, immaculate and charming rooms. Cozy, country setting, path that leads to center of town. Pet friendly complete with doggie treats to welcome our Golden Retriever. They thought of everything! Three miles from Tanglewood, five minutes to Stockbridge Center, off the beaten path yet convenient to everything we wanted. I would gladly stay here again. FYI: wonderful breakfast at Caffe Pomo D'Oro in town - don't miss it!

We stayed here on our way home from the NH White Mountains. With our 1 yr old and my elderly mother, we needed to travel at a more leisurely pace. This was an ideal stopover. West Stockbridge is a charming and secluded little town in the Berkshires and the Inn was like staying at a friend's apartment (while the friend's away). The decore is contemporary and inviting, the room spacious, and the innkeepers took care to stock the kitchenette and dining area with all the basic necessities (dishes, silverware, and glassware, microwave (and popcorn!), toaster oven, coffee maker, paper towels, sponge and dish soap. All this alongside the generous in-room continental breakfast (fresh pastries from local bakeries) and assorted beverages all help to ensure the comforts of home.
We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this place.

The only caveat I would advise is - the ceiling is a bit thin so you can hear traffic in the upstairs room (which was occupied by another family with an active toddler on the night of our stay). Since our own little one was quite lively as well during his waking hours, we really can't complain - and the noises quited down as soon as the child was put to bed. For those who MAY be bothered by such noises, I would recommend staying on the 2nd floor.

Wow, what a great place ! With most of the rooms in being renovated, we booked the "honeymoon suite" to celebrate our anniversay. It was a one night booking... wish we could have stayed a week. Not your typical B&B. This room was huge, cozy with a gas fireplace, king bed AND two person jacuzzi !!!. You can have your breakfast ( continental items supplied ) RIGHT in your room . Within walking distance of a great little French Restaurant. Do not be worried about the ambience of the grounds. The room is the key !!! Next visit will be at least a week.

The Inn is the perfect spot for discerning travellers who are chintzophobic about overly dainty B&B's and tired of cookie cutter motel chains. Shaker Mill offers charm without cramped, Victorian clutter and the privacy and comfort of a modern motel simultaneously.

Our room, actually a generous mini suite had a very comfortable couch with good lighting for reading, a breakfast table for 4 and a lovely private patio. We enjoyed our 'snack area' with counter, wet bar, mini fridge, toaster oven and microwave. The room was thoughtfully stocked with gourmet coffees,&teas, milk, juices, sweet rolls, scones and oatmeal. A special touch were yogurt parfaits.

The inn keepers are wonderful. They love and know the area, handling reservations and details effortlessly for you. We encountered some troubling, nosiy guests and were astonished by the lenghts they went to in rectifying the situation for us.

The village center is a short, pleasant walk away with wonderful shopping and restaurants ( especially Rouge, a French restaurant). If you are looking for an affordable ( a rarity in the Berkshires!) & comfortable setting, I wholly recommend the Shaker Mill.
