The smell alone should deter anyone from staying here. The beds are wildly uncomfortable and the shower is like being in a coffin. The overall vibe is creepy. Hands down the worst place I have ever stayed.

This place is not for everybody but it fit our needs perfectly. The grounds are beautiful with views of the mountains and a running stream in the backyard. It's atmosphere makes you feel totally surrounded by nature. The downstairs living rooms are the house's most outstanding feature. A huge circular fireplace in the middle of the room gives the house... More

Shaker Mill Farm Inn is one of my favorite places to stay in all upstate. The setting is fabulous - you arrive down a small lane to the two and a half century old stone old mill house, far back from Route 22, with views across a meadow to a beautiful hill. The back of the property is adjacent to... More

The inn is located by a beautiful stream and is managed by a delightful husband and wife innkeeping team. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a large bed which afforded a restful night's sleep. A plus was the fact that this is a historic building with thick stone walls and refreshingly simple decor. Many B&Bs are too frilly... More

My wife and I were visiting grand kids at camp and this B&B was one that did not require 2 night minimum....The website made the place look and sound worth taking a chance...we were aghast at their "no frills" accomodations.....the room was slightly better than I imagine a jail cell to be....the smell was not pleasant....the furniture in the den...

Ingram and Tricia are not only excellent innkeepers, they are up on almost every issue on the American political landscape. It is a perfect place for a writing seminar. It has a magical fireplace that inspires conversation and general good feeling. And to top it off, the huge sunroom in the inn has perfect view of a waterfall that flows... More

We stayed at the Inn after my parents recommended it (they had stayed here ten years ago) and it didn’t disappoint us a decade later. It’s located conveniently close to the Taconic State Parkway (for a hassle free ride into New York city), right next to the fascinating Shaker villages of Hancock and Mt Lebanon (for those who are culturally/historically...

My wife and I found this inn in 2002 on our first trip to the Berkshires. I was drawn to its historical pedigree (I admit I am a history professor), and the building did not disappoint. The place is rustic, and it suits both it and the innkeeper, Ingram, who is a fascinating and friendly fellow. The landscape itself is... More

I recently stayed at this Inn for a few days with my partner and adult children. The innkeeper Ingram was very nice and pretty helpful. The rooms are basic, no frills to be sure. The bathrooms/showers are tiny and the stalls pretty run down. The Inn is a combination of quaint charm and dated ambience. Carpet is worn, furnishings are... More

I couldn't have a more different experience than the previous review. Perhaps we were fortunate to get a room on the first floor, in which the floors were wood and not carpeted, but we found this place to be a real gem (not to mention blissfully chintz-free), and a very good deal. The rooms are simple but pleasant, and the... More
