“Shaker Mill Inn: Nice, quiet, almost like being at home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2007

When my brother and I went antiquing in early May in the Berkshires, I was looking for something better priced than two single rooms and that offered more privacy than sharing a double. What I found on the Internet was the Shaker Mill Inn in West Stockbridge, where we had the “Executive Suite” at a $140 plus tax at the off-season rate. Prior to arriving I had several phone calls and e-mails with the owners Lori and Michael who were quite nice and helpful.

The Executive Suite was on the second floor in the back of the building up a flight of stairs. We went down a little flight of stairs to enter the suite. On the left was a bedroom area with a queen bed, two night stands, a chest of drawers, a television and a little terrace that overlooked the small parking lot with a nice view beyond it. In the center of the suite was a closet and the bathroom, and to the right was another bedroom area with queen bed, television, etc. That space also included a kitchenette with microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator and sink, but no stove or hot plate. There was decent supply of dishes and flatware, but no paper towels or dish towels. The bathroom was fine with lots of light and a fairly strong shower. The room came with breakfast which included coffee for the coffeemaker, orange juice, fruit, cereal and croissants.

It was a very pleasant and comfortable room, and extremely quiet, which is of the ultimate importance to me. One of the things that I particularly liked about the Executive Suite was that there were wastebaskets and outlets galore as well as many lights, which took us a while to figure out how to turn on. Light was certainly abundant in the suite because there were skylights everywhere, and that for me was the only drawback. I’m used to sleeping in a very dark room, and with a skylight above my head I unhappily woke up at the crack of dawn.

I would highly recommend the Shaker Mill Inn to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in West Stockbridge. By the way, the Rouge Restaurant in town was great.

  • Liked — Space, light, quiet
  • Disliked — Skylights in Executive Suite gave too much light too early in the morning

What a wonderful find! We love this place. The rooms are really comfortable and with the kitchenette we were able to bring along all our sons favorite snacks. By the way the breakfasts were just what we wanted. Thanks again

Stayed December 2006

Checked in around 6 pm to the honeymoon suite for our 27th anniversary. Room was enormous and had a lot of amenities. Unfortunately the amenities did not work so well. Went to use the FM stereo but could not get any stations (no antenna). Went to use the gas fireplace (Cool night) but the fireplace did not work. The support staffs came and fixed the fireplace but were no help on the stereo.

The staff was quite nice but the room could have used a more complete cleaning. Stuff in the couch, dirty glass top table...that sort of thing. Breakfast was delivered the night before and included cold cereal, croissants wrapped in plastic wrap and fruit. Not the breakfast I imagined but it tasted fine.

At the end of the day I think I got what I paid for. A reasonably priced room on Labor Day weekend. W. Stockbridge is a funky little town that we enjoyed very much and the Inn is ideally located for walking it.

During height of tourist season, I found this lovely, quiet retreat that is about a 20 min. drive to Stockbridge. The price was VERY economical. Rooms are Shaker decor and small but worked well for me as I was travelling alone. Host was very personable and accommodating. Homey and the view of stars at night was fabulous. No cellular service for me but a great get-away place--will gladly return.
