My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Inn at Shaker Mill Farm to take advantage of the Fall foliage and quaint little towns in the area. The Inn is a beautiful stone building from the 1800's that stands on a little hill near a running brook and lots of greenery. Upon stepping inside, one is greeted with warm lighting,... More

Our recent trip to the Inn was a very peaceful and pleasant one! It's a good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The grounds have a beautiful babbling brook in the back of the property and we had a view from our room of it. There's a meadow with wild flowers and a picturesque... More

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
