Beautiful home and waterfall. The host was way too casual and ruined the entire trip for me: from getting inches from my face in conversation, serving me bread in a ziplock bag that was wet with a mystery fluid on the inside, and lounging on the couch with no lamps/lights on during the early morning and suddenly pulling his blanket up when I came back inside from outside. If they get rid of the host and get someone else, it'd be good.

The Inn at Shaker Mill Falls is a quiet, cosy retreat in a beautiful area with a convenient Berkshires location. My family of 5 spent 2 nights here in August. The grounds are lovely – set back from the road with a waterfall literally running through the back yard. The Inn is not a pristine hotel – but rather a seasoned and soulful old building filled to the brim with books, art, spiritual tchotchkes and lived in furniture. We felt like we were staying in a friend’s home – my kids found it a bit magical and mysterious. If that’s what you’re looking for – then the Inn is for you. If however very modern amenities and a sparse, immaculate hotel is your cup of tea - this isn't the place for you. In the area we enjoyed Mt. Greylock, the Shaker Farm and Mass MOCA. We loved the food at Blueberry Hill (near the Inn) and at Public and Korean Garden in Adams near Mass MOCA.

Do you love organic cooking? Do you want to stay in a space that has a history over hundreds of years? Do you like good beds but don’t care about the ambience in the room or the space of the bathroom? Then this place is for you. The Inn is just a 10 minute drive from Tanglewood, so three of us couples stayed there after our July 3 concert. We loved the fact that it was so close and easy to drive both to the venue and home. The grounds are lovely with lots of flowerbeds gardens and beautiful Falls. Michael is welcoming, and will tell you a great deal about the history of the house and his plans for creating gardens and making the space a wholesome place to visit. We slept well. All the rooms have king-size beds and although there wasn’t air-conditioning, there were fans; the evenings cool down well enough even in July to make it comfortable. Take time to wander around the gardens and enjoy the spaces, the books, a little nooks and crannies that this historic building has to offer. Breakfast was a baked French toast, blueberry muffins, fresh coffee, and fresh fruit. You might be able to find cheaper places to stay, or more spacious rooms, or fancier bathrooms. But if this is what you love, enjoy it.

Where do I even begin? The Woodhall School launched our first ever grade retreats this past March. When I reached out to several venues to find a special place for our seniors to go for an overnight retreat--it was proving impossible. Then...I found the Inn at Shaker Mill Falls and all I can say is WOW! Della reached out first and she was incredible. She was attentive to the vision, got the concept, took meticulous notes and worked to make everything happen. They gave us a VERY reasonable fee for housing 8 students, 2 adults, and feeding dinner, smores, breakfast, and lunch. Now here is the thing...we then arrived at the Inn and were greeted by Michael. I spoke to Michael before arrival to plan meals and I knew he was running this business because it spoke to his heart. Well, upon arrival that only became more self-evident! The food was DELICIOUS! He even made a special cake for the boys and added all these little extra touches along the way. He took the time to explain the details of each room to me and really created an oasis of peace and self-reflection for our group. We felt at home. We felt community. That's the thing--if you want a unique and custom tailored experience with superb food, quality service, and a place you feel as though you have gained new family...this is the place to go! We enjoyed being able to help clean-up and took pride in giving back to this very special place. This is the beginning of a wonderful tradition and relationship with Woodhall. The only change for next year...Mike is going to have to speak with the boys planned on schedule, he joined us for some farewell words and threw in some wonderful wisdom and advice for the boys. This was an AMAZING and INCREDIBLE experience.

Michael is a great host! “Love all and feed all” is his mantra and he follows it with a genreous heart! Highly recommend! Came second time with a group of 12 and 10 kids, will come again! Great access to the jimney peak ski resort!
