Nestled on the banks of The Williams River is the charming historic Berkshire village of West Stockbridge Massachusetts. Home to the Shaker Mill Inn, a West Stockbridge Massachusetts bed & breakfast for sale. The Inn offers popularly priced yet extensively well-appointed and spacious efficiency guest rooms and suites. All 9 accommodations include either kitchenettes or full kitchens, equipped with mini frig, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. Many of the rooms have fireplaces and the Honeymoon Suite has a two person whirlpool tub. Eight of the rooms feature private patios, decks or balconies. The Inn is family friendly (pet friendly too!) Some of the rooms have optional connecting doorways and sofa beds, perfectly situated to accommodate families.
The property features beautifully landscaped gardens with a walking path and water feature. A fire pit and gas grill are located on a good sized lawn area where families and couples enjoy lawn games or just relaxing.
The Berkshires are a four season destination where visitors want to be out and about. Visitors love the warm days and moderate evenings in the summer and early fall. One reason why the Boston Symphony Orchestra made Tanglewood and the Berkshires their summer home! Tanglewood’s entrance is minutes away from the Inn. The close proximity to all the attractions in Lenox, Lee, and greater Stockbridge is a major plus.
In the winter months the Inn’s comfortable rooms are perfect to retreat too after enjoying Butternut, Catamount and Jiminy Peak Mountains for snowboarding, tubing, cross country skiing and moderate downhill ski trails. The ‘average’ room is over 500 square feet, offering beds, sitting areas and abundant space to stretch out and enjoy your getaway!
The small historic village of West Stockbridge has some wonderful qualities. Great little places to dine and explore. How about the oldest family owned hardware store in the Berkshires, or an art gallery coffee shop owned by a renowned National Geographic photographer. The nearby Shaker Mill Tavern is perfect to walk to for a casual meal. In addition there are other village dining options plus an eclectic mix of galleries and shops. The small town qualities of West Stockbridge offer innkeepers a wonderful lifestyle. A great town to own and grow a business in.
Guests staying at the Shaker Mill Inn enjoy their breakfast in the privacy of their rooms. The rooms are stocked with breakfast items. Baskets with baked goods, fresh fruit, quiches and tarts. Here is what one guest review said about their breakfast experience:
“…we really enjoyed having a light breakfast in our room (quiche in the fridge and bagels/muffins in a basket). The coffee was excellent, and we got to enjoy it in our pajamas in front of the fireplace!”
Current innkeepers have developed a lodging business model that affords guests to remain private, if they choose.
- Self check-in and check-out
- Breakfast in the privacy of their room or outside deck or patio
- A wealth of amenities are provided in the guest rooms plus a list of ‘extras’ available on request
- Spacious guest rooms allow guests to ‘spread out’ and ‘cocoon’ if desired
This business model also allows innkeepers more free time. Without daily breakfast prep, serving and clean up. Yet the current innkeepers are always available and in communication with their guests. The welcoming personal touch is very evident at the Shaker Mill Inn!
A recent and valuable feature was the renovation of the Owner’s Quarters. This area includes an open floor plan, living room and large eat-in kitchen with all new equipment and expansive counters. There is the master bedroom, private deck with mountain views and master bath and laundry room. The quarters are very private affording the innkeepers a secluded retreat from the Inn.
There is a ground floor utility room that houses laundry equipment, refrigeration, sink, work counter, storage area and mechanicals. There are monitored heat, smoke, CO and cold alarms for the building as a safety feature.
