“Celebrating the New Year in West Stockbridge”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

For the third year in a row my wife and I spent New Year's weekend at the Shaker Mill Inn in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts. This Berkshires gem features a handful of rooms, each tastefully decorated with custom furnishings. Some rooms have fireplaces, others, like ours, had a gas fireplace, which is really nice in the dead of winter. The innkeepers stock the room with the makings for a very nice breakfast, including things like a fresh quiche, bagels, croissants, and turnovers, as well as fresh milk and juice. There's a fridge, toaster oven, and microwave in each room. The place is very well appointed, and there's a great restaurant right out the front door.

We made a last minute reservation at the Shaker Mill Inn and we were so happy with the stay and experience. The rooms were very clean and tidy. The owners thought about every little thing you might need for your stay to be the most comfortable -- even to littlest details like a flashlight. They also helped us pick a wonderful restaurant for our birthday dinner.
Our dog was just as happy that she could travel with us. When we arrived there was a doggie welcome basket with goodies, food bowl and a book of local walks for dogs! We were all VERY happy. We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: A few rooms have lots of stairs to the entrance... be sure to ask in advance.

We stayed in the Tanglewood room in December. The kitchenette and the electric fireplace were wonderful features. The bathroom and the overall atmosphere were very nice. We recommend bringing sippers being the bare floors were cold and the throw rugs were dirty. The pre-cooked breakfast wasn't impressive. We were disappointed with the 7:30am jumpers above us (children I presume) and the outside lights that shined in through the windows (no blackout curtains). Our stay at the Shaker Mill Inn wasn't the worst but not quite the best. However, we would recommend it to friends and family if they were looking for a private stay in Stockbridge.

Like recent reviewers, there are many extra's that make the inn a convenient place to stay including the microwave, toaster oven and bar sink. The room is very spacious and it's nice to have two beds for a family (with children) and the small table for breakfast and anytime meals not to mention a small couch. The continental breakfasts were a change of pace compared to the typical B&B. The advantage is that it is convenient and ample. The disadvantage is that you are not served a culinary delight on fine china and the opportunity to chat with other guests which we do enjoy. FYI, if you are traveling with small children, there are shower stalls not tubs, at least in the Queensboro and Catamount Rooms. It was great having the connecting rooms when visiting with another couple. Small and quaint describes the hamlet of West Stockbridge of which the inn is part of.

Room Tip: The Catamount was more private in comparison to the Queensboro. The Queensboro is in the back of th...

When we walked into our inviting suite at the Shaker Mill Inn music was playing and a low light was on - very inviting! The suite was roomy yet cozy, and had all of the little "extras" (cuddly robes, hot chocolate, wine, movies, etc.) to make our stay as comfortable as could be. The suite included a frig, coffee maker, micro, toaster oven, extra blankets and pillows, free movies, and a wonderful shower and comfortable beds. To top it all off, the Inn was only a few steps away from a great restaurant/tavern which served a delicious cheese/bread plate and chili. The Inn was so nice that we wished we were staying in the area more than one night! The Shaker Mill Inn has to be the best bargain in the Berkshires!

Room Tip: Look at the pictures on line and choose the one you want - that's what we did.

My friend and I liked everything about the Inn. Well cared for and attractive, the Inn is within walking distance of good restaurants and shops. We stayed in the Queensboro Room which is on ground level and opens through sliding doors to a shaded patio. In room refridgerator, coffee maker, micro and toaster oven let us lounge in our room with the breakfast provided for us....good quiche and assorted baked goods. We liked the privacy of the room, which you could access without going through any common areas. Even though we arrived with the first big snow storm of this winter, Bob was ready with his snow blower, shook the snow off the trees near our entryway and we were free to wander West Stockbridge, Stockbridge and Lenox. Mary was responding to a guest complaint posted on this web site about coffee quality and the coffee she provided us for use in our coffee pot was very good. Beds extremely comfortable, room bright and cheerful during the day. We'd love to go back.
