Reviewed 22 May 2009

Have you ever stayed at a place that felt like home? This is the place. We like to take weekend getaways with our Old English Bulldogge and this was the find of a lifetime. We immediately fell in love with the Inn and the Inn Keepers. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and we felt we could move right in and live there forever. The first thing you notice when you enter, with the owner at the helm, is the cleanliness. The decor is warm and cozy and the bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up in the morning. I loved the spa tub and I have decided that this is my dream bathroom. There were snacks, coffee and wine left for us, no extra charge. They even had a "Doggie Basket" filled with natural doggie treats, towels, and a book on area dog friendly activities.

Bob and Mary, the owners, are very warm and friendly people. We asked about different activities in the area and they were accomodating to say the least. I left a travel mug and they were kind enough to send it to me. I can't wait for a return visit. Koodos to this wonderfl couple - Thank you !!!!!!

We stayed in the honeymoon suite, and we were really impressed! The suite was big, clean, and had fresh flowers and lit candles when we arrived. Bob and Mary are great hosts and genuinely nice people. Bob helped us find some good hiking trails. Overall, a nice place to go relax, which is exactly what we wanted to do. The free wi-fi was also a nice plus.

One thing to note, however, is that the breakfast is put in the room the day before. Muffins, bagels, fresh fruit, yogurt, and the like. Nothing too impressive, but if you're still hungry you can have them bring you more food. I usually eat a lot, and I wasn't. Also, the bed isn't very cushioned, and we slept only OK in it. But that's more a matter of preference.

Bob and Mary are outstanding hosts, the rooms are very clean, romantic,comfortable and they are even pet friendly. When we arrived Bob greeted us with a warm and personal touch, the room had the fireplace on, subtle music on playing a beautiful stereo, a great TV, refreshments, fruits, sweets and a stocked fridge for a breakfast. We had our dog which also had a wonderful welcome basket !! Quiet, beautiful, with plenty to or just relax. We can't wait to return.

We can't possibly say enough about the Shaker Mill Inn! Bob and Mary, the innkeepers, are fantastic! We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite for a mid-week mini-vacation and it was perfect. Bob greeted us enthusiastically and showed us to our room as soon as we arrived. The fireplace was on, candles were lit, classical music was playing and the lighting was perfect. There were fresh cut flowers throughout the the Suite, which were absolutely lovely. They had left us treats for breakfast (scones, croissants, muffins, orange juice, fresh cut fruit) and there were clean dishes and plates with an assortment of teas, hot chocolates, and coffees. The room was spotless and the decor incredibly relaxing. They had even printed out the weather report, a list of activities in the area for the days we were there, and some menus for suggested restaurants. When we asked about the local winery and if it would be open on a Sunday, Bob was back within 5 minutes with a print-out and directions. How could you ask for more? It was all of these details that came together to make for an extremely peaceful, relaxing, and enjoyable getaway. We highly recommend this Inn; you will certainly have a wonderful experience!

Simply put, go to The Shaker Mill Inn. The rooms are big, clean and very nice. The efficiency-style setup of the rooms is extremely convenient and the breakfasts provided are great. Makes for nice, relaxing mornings. Bob & Mary are extremely friendly and helpful. West Stockbridge is close to everything as well as being in a nice, quiet area. The Berkshires are a great place to visit, with many things to do. The Shaker Mill Inn is the perfect place to come back to each day. Whether you’re traveling with kids or just adults, The Shaker Mill Inn is the place. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in the Honeymoon suite. Very clean. Big room, had everything we needed for a pleasant 3 days. All nicely decorated, up to date and clean. Excellent location in West Srockbridge. Bob, the owner, was most accommodating. Set us up with the gluten free breakfast I need. He even brushed off guests cars after it snowed.

We found the Shaker Mill Inn thanks to Tripadvisor reviewers. The location is excellent. The rooms large and comfortable. It felt like staying in a small apartment complete with a small balcony with table and chairs. Our room had a kitchenette stocked with coffee, tea, honey, juice, cereal, milk, fruit. Bagels, muffins and pastry are delivered to the room each day. Two slices of delicious quiche were also in the refrigerator when we arrived and next day fresh fruit salad appeared in the refrigerator. The owners are genuinely interested in making sure you enjoy your stay. We used the Shaker Mill Inn as a base for 3 days/2nights as we explored the Berkshires. The Norman Rockwell museum, Edith Wharton's estate, The Mount, and a fabulous dinner at the Spanish restaurant Viva in nearby Glendale were the highlights of our trip.
