Our visit was wonderful. Everything about our experience was quite unique. The setting is gorgeous and Michael, the owner, made sure that my partner and I would be comfortable in every way. I give this place 10 stars!

We visited for a concert at Tanglewood. This isn’t a luxury B&B, but harkens back to its Shaker roots. Decently sized rooms, with adequate en-suite baths. The property is rustic, but welcoming. It’s evolving to they ways of the world,, but it’s not a boutique B&B. And we were glad for that. If you care about the land and the history, you will be happy here. If you expect the innkeepers to bow and scrape after you…maybe not. Lots of things t do and craft food and drink in the area.

If you love historical buildings, peace and quiet, and meeting some of the nicest people on the planet you’re in the right place! Michael, the owner was so accommodating of my husband, me and our two golden retrievers. Manager Chuck was also welcoming and a pleasure to chat with over morning coffee. The room was rustic but clean and comfortable. They have a vision for this building and grounds that is being thoughtfully put into place. Check out their website! It’s not the Hilton (why be bored by a run of the mill hotel?!) We’d stay again, no question.

My family of about 20 rented out the entire Inn for Thanksgiving and it was one of the best Thanksgivings we've ever had. Michael gave us full access to the kitchen which made all our cooking go incredibly smoothly. The space was great, especially the beautiful living room area that looked out to the falls. We found a great hike only 8 miles away. I was able to easily run into Pittsfield to pick up some groceries, and my father-in-law was able to fly into Albany which is only 45 minutes away. We were able to totally avoid all the crazy Thanksgiving traffic. Perfect location.

We just returned from a retreat held at the Inn. It was an exceptional experience, meeting all of our expectations. Walking through the front door we entered another world; it was a place of peace and nurturing. There was hot coffee, tea and tasty treats. A family was playing a board game with their child, and there was quiet laughter. A quiet hum embraced us. We then entered the main room and saw the brook that Shakers used to create the mill, in which we were standing. The brook was cascading down the hill, as it has for centuries. The spirit of the Shakers who built the house from the stones harvested from the hard ground, embedded the Inn. We were witnesses to a time past. Books of every type lined the walls - focusing on enlightenment and self-healing; never mind the complete works of Shakespeare. The curator of this eclectic connection is Michael. It was his vision that created this refuge. He willingly shares both his knowledge of the Shaker tradition and Eastern meditative practices. He also shares his passion for tasty vegetarian cooking - ranging the globe- like a local 7 herb soup, Thai Curry and a Sicilian eggplant dish; delicious and to be shared in a communal setting with other guests.

We had a lovely family vacation at the Inn. It is an old mill with rustic rooms. There are sitting areas and lots of books. The living room has a beautiful view of the stream. The Inn is in a perfect location to enjoy the Berkshires while being in a quiet rural setting.

we lodged two nights at The Inn, which is a twenty-minute car ride to Tanglewood. The facility served as a grist mill in years past, and innkeeper Michael couldn't be friendlier or more accessible. We stayed in Room 11 on the front side of the inn, it was very quiet and led to a wonderful night's sleep. The waterfall is not audible from the front side, so if you're looking for that constant rush, request a room on the river side. We arrived late both nights and enjoyed a glass of wine on the terrace. We chose to breakfast at a local bakery (Blueberry Hill Cafe) which was quite good. The Inn at Shaker Mill is cost-efficient and restful - a good combination!

Michael is a lovely man and a generous soul who made our experience renting the Inn out so wonderful. We had such a great retreat there with everyone feeling so cared for and safe in his beautiful place. His spirit watched over us as he left us alone to do deep meditation work and was unobtrusive but there if we needed anything. The land was perfect for a quiet, deep time for our participants and the whole staff was so helpful and kind. Sitting by the stream, eating outdoors, gathering in the yard, it was all perfect and serene. His spirit is infused in everything there and he is so supportive and open to any kind of healing work. He lives a life of service and is truly happy to help people grow and flourish on his land. THank you Michael!

The nature that surrounds Shaker Mill was music to my soul. I gathered here for a weekend with 21 fellow yogi’s and we handed over our electronics for 72 hours - willingly ;) it was a digital detox yoga retreat. This experience was beautifully supported by the great variety of ways to interact with Mother Earth available at Shaker Mill. The sound of moving water that emanated from the creek inspired waterfall behind the home offered a great sense of peace. It was an epic meditation location. The dining hall opened us up to a sense of closeness and connection; it was also the perfect space for doing workshops and playing games. As we gathered in the common area for yoga and chanting sessions the residents always treated us with great care and attention - it was a full on family vibe. I was deeply inspired by the pond which was filled with wildlife resembling a band of wind and string instruments. We also found the fire pit and hammock to be wonderful relaxation locations. And it’s close to some unique activities. We went hiking, found a rope swing on a beautiful lake. . . And one day I went rouge and ended up at a race, speeding in a go kart around the kiddie track - my inner child was quite pleased! Shaker Mill will always hold a place in my heart ♥️
