Shaker Hill B&B is a lovingly updated 1790's colonial home set on 24 acres in the Upper Valley of New England. The original wide board floors set off the charm of each of the four bedrooms. All of the rooms are unique and designed for comfort with down comforters and pillows, comfortable chairs, and plenty of light for reading. The house is wrapped in a large covered porch, perfect for relaxing after a busy day. Join us at the end of the day for refreshments - a home baked treat to satisfy that sweet craving. The living room is to be enjoyed and is stocked with books, games, television and VCR. Breakfast is served in the paneled dining room - in front of a crackling fire during the chilly winter months. Centrally located with ready access to many attractions and events in both New Hampshire and Vermont, the Shaker Hill Bed and Breakfast is designed to make your stay a special one.

This was our first stay at a B&B and we will definitely continue!! The bed was awesome, the food delicious, Nancy & Lindsey were extremely friendly and informative about the area, and the dogs made us feel like we were at home! Gertie, Bo, Ben and Jake welcomed us "home" each day and greeted us in the morning after breakfast. And Nancy was great to chat with in the evenings and share a glass of wine - we felt like a part of the family! Thanks again for a wonderful vacation stay!! James & Bert

With nearly 60 years of travel experience in all 50 states, Europe, Canada, Mexico, and South America we rate this establishment at the top of our list for recommended places to stay. The building is a perfect example of early american construction with tasteful updating which has preserved the details of period craftsmanship. Rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, and the extensive gardens on the property are well worth spending time in. If you are an animal lover, the 4 resident dogs are friendly and will make you feel at home instantly. Breakfast menus were varied and contained plenty of locally produced foods with enhancements from flower and herb gardens on the property.

This was our first bed and breakfast. We didn't know what to expect and it was excellent! The place was quiet and the food excellent! Perfect weekend getaway before our second baby arrives this fall.

We've been staying at B & B's for over 25 years and have found Shaker Hill to be among the best. The location, the incredible view of the lake and mountains and the warm feeling of being "home" as you relax in your comfortable room, makes for great experiences in themselves. Add to this the care for every guest need that Nancy provides, from afternoon tea to an incredible breakfast, and you can't help but enjoy yourself. Playing with the resident vizslas, Ben, Bo and Gertie, add to any pet lovers stay. We look forward to returning! Bob & Laura B.

I forgot to write this. My husband and I stayed here last Spring, My mom lives at Kendal in Hanover. The drive back and forth took 15 minutes or so, not bad. After the first time or two it did get easier and we tried different routes. The bed was fabulous. Breakfast was super delicious, hosts fun to talk to, non-intrusive.

He happened upon Shaker Hill after another B&B for which we had reservations was flooded out by heavy rains. We were very pleased with the outcome. I was familiar with the Dartmouth area, having been a student there many years ago, But I had never visited Enfield. The town is quiet, and the B&B is nicely situated on the top of a hill with good views over the countryside. The location is convenient to anything in the Dartmouth/Lebanon area. The hosts were very pleasant and welcoming, the room was clean and comfortable (and had AC, to my pleasant surprise), and the breakfasts were delicious. They have three viszla dogs, very friendly and energetic, which is a plus for dog-lovers (as we are) but could be a bit much for the dog-averse.

The setting is really pretty, close to Dartmouth. The cookies and breakfast were "I want the recipe" good, and the owners were comfortable, friendly, and easy to be around. Very, very nice, we highly recommend
