As we pulled into the parking area of Shaker Mill in in West Stockbridge, MA, the affable and friendly innkeeper came to greet us. Bob and his equally warm and pleasant wife Mary showed us around, then escorted us to our room, the honeymoon suite. During our weekend there, they checked occasionally to make certain that all was well but were not intrusive. They were helpful in pointing out attractions and restaurants that might be of interest to us.
We were very pleased with the accoutrements. There is plenty of room: a nicely appointed kitchenette with comfortable chairs and a table, a cozy living area with a couch positioned in front of a fireplace, a comfortable king-sized bed. French doors lead to a semi-private patio.
The bath area is roomy as well, with a nice-sized sink area, a full shower, and a large jacuzzi that is set in a raised area sitting beneath a skylight. The toilet is tucked into an alcove, a nice feature.
Most importantly, the suite is immaculate.
Service included simple but delicious continental breakfasts which awaited us each morning. Bagels, croissants, muffins, fruit, yogurt, quiche, oatmeal, coffee, tea, hot chocolate---something different every morning.
There are appliances to complete the meal: a coffee maker, small refrigerator, toaster oven and small sink.
The grounds feature lovely plantings among beautiful rock formations and walkways.
Just outside of Stockbridge, Shaker Mill Inn is not in the middle of the hubbub of that busy town, pleasing to those of us who appreciate a quiet setting. Yet several good restaurants are within walking distance. Also nearby are a few nice shops and a wonderful bookstore. The inn is not far from many of the attractions in the breathtakingly beautiful Berkshire mountains.
We'd go back in a heartbeat.
