About

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.

Quiet weekend getaway

5 on July 24, 2014

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.


"A Home away from Home"

4.8 on March 18, 2014

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.


Lovely Hosts, great bed

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.


Unexpected comfort off the beaten track

5 on July 24, 2013

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.


Exceeds expectations

Beautiful landscaping, old shaker home, beautifully decorated. Innkeepers very friendly. Breakfasts over the top each morning. Enjoyed dining with other guests and meeting them.


The best B & B breakfasts ever!

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


Felt like home

4.6 on July 30, 2012

Warm, inviting B&B with gracious and attentive hosts. Outstanding 'made from scratch' breakfasts! Wood exposed floors and staircase, along with an abundance of appropriately placed antiques, make for a cozy dwelling. Artistically designed gardens on extensive grounds. Memorable stay and hope to visit again.


This Plaec Has It All

A gem hidden in a small town that is central to so much in the area. Run by 2 warm & welcoming people. Rooms are large, filled with antiques. View of lake from large porch is restful. Best breakfast anywhere. We are regulars here.


A wonderful way station.

I wish we'd had more than one might to spend. We stayed at this lovely spot on our travels between visiting friends. The old house is wonderful and Nancy and Al are great hosts. After a delicious breakfast, we went to the Shaker Museum across the lake and had a very educational visit.
