This 200 year old house is a quarter hour drive from Dartmouth. Nancy the owner lets out 3 spacious rooms. I’ve never slept better. Her breakfasts are fantastic. Very good value. She and her two dogs make you feel right at home.
We stayed here for a getaway weekend. Joe and Cathy are excellent and gracious hosts. We had lovely chats with them both, and Cathy filled us in on some local spots of interest we would have otherwise missed. Our breakfasts were yummy, and 'treats' were always available. The room we had in this 1800's farmhouse was spotless and comfortable. The house is tastefully decorated and an amazing amount of renovation has brought this home back to its roots while keeping up with modern day amenities. We will absolutely return! Sheila and Dan
I love this B&B. The owners are a delight, the rooms clean and quaint. It is an authentic New England Farmhouse B&B. The food was most enjoyable and plentiful. The hostess goes out of her way to make sure everything is just right. All the food is fresh some from her own garden, which she takes delight in maintaining. If you are in the area I highly recommend staying at this typical New England B&B.
Just down the road from the Shaker Museum, the Shaker Farm B&B is a classic New England farmhouse that has retained all its charm. Breakfasts are to die for! Would return anytime. (Warning: stairs to upper floors are steep & narrow, but if you don’t have a problem navigating the climb, the rooms on the 2nd & 3rd floors are well worth it).
First, let me say that I really don't like B&B's... But this one was different; I actually enjoyed it and found it a bit of a romantic interlude in our trip. It is historically significant, as the property was once the sight of a Shaker settlement. The house is old, old, old, but loving restored and highly functioning. The attention to detail is obvious. The hostess is a font of knowledge about the area, and can recommend things to do that are fitting for you. She keeps the place impeccably clean, and the grounds simply lovely. She even uses the fruits of her own garden to feed you! (This includes the flowers - which are delicious!) She makes trips to the local farmers market to find the rest of what she needs, so the food tastes incredibly fresh - and you know what - it makes a big difference. I don't think a lot of us really know what a fresh egg tastes like. And feed you she does! The breakfast is a gourmet treat every morning! We had three breakfasts there and each was a delight. Breakfast is at 8:30, and is served in the dining room at a central table. The hostess plates all the breakfasts to your specification; this is not a "family style" serving. It is a good opportunity to chat with the other guests who all seem to have interesting stories to tell. Coffee is usually available by around 7:30 to take up to your room. She makes a delicious fair trade blend which is excellent. The rooms are comfortably furnished with historical pieces. The beds are good by B&B standards. If you are in need of something the hostess will find it for you in a hurry. There are two dogs which are a happy tail-wagging twosome - Gertie and Bo, So pretty they have been in calendars! If you are in the area, this place is worth a stay for a couple of days. Good location, yet quiet and off the beaten path.…
