Beautiful Inn

5 on October 23, 2017

We stayed 2 nights at this Inn during September and our stay was one of the highlights of our trip. Room was very clean and comfortable. Even though the temperature was unseasonably warm our room temperature was fine. Joe and Cathy were very gracious hosts, we came as strangers and left as friends. The breakfast was excellent. They made us very welcome in their home. We would definitely stay again if in the area.

Excellent stay

5 on October 01, 2017

My friend and I recently spent two nights here. Joe and Cathy immediately made us feel at home. Although the weather was unseasonably warm our room was very comfortable. Their home is beautiful, clean, welcoming and they were very accommodating. Beds and furniture were very comfortable. Breakfast both days was excellent-both in presentation and quality/taste of food. This was one of the highlights of our vacation and we definitely would stay here again if in the area.

Charming Inn

My husband, daughter and I stayed in this bed & breakfast on our recent trip to New England. The breakfasts were exceptional and our hosts went above and beyond in their accommodations. The only thing I would recommend is that guests have a car. We took Amtrak and were only able to do local activities. The Shaker museum is very interesting and the lake was beautiful. Very pretty area. Lyn Brock

The Shaker Farm B&B was a delightful find on our trip through NH. Cathy and Joe were lovely hosts. There was a slight nip in the air, so the deck was a perfect spot for evening, blankets and a fire pit! Cathy prepared a delicious and beautiful breakfast. Would definitely stay at Shaker Farm again!

Reunion Weekend

3.6 on June 25, 2017

Very pleasant stay. Food and Hospitality were more than we anticipated.

Outstanding in every way

5 on June 18, 2017

Our stay at this quintessential bed and breakfast was defined by its friendly and gracious hosts, superb breakfasts (different each of our five mornings there), lovely old Shaker farmhouse, elegant decor (our room's theme was the "fox hunt"), comfortable bed, and lovely, convenient location near Dartmouth College. We enjoyed listening to the wind in the trees from the back deck's comfy chairs, watching the rose-breasted grosbeaks feed at the bird feeders, and talking with hosts Cathy and Joe and the other guests. It was a wonderful experience! We will go back often!

Very nice

Hostess, Kathy, is very nice. Food is great. Too many items in room. Cluttered but clean.

Birthday weekend October 2016

4.6 on October 10, 2016

Joe and Kathy couldn't have been nicer. They were so welcoming and made you feel as though you were part of a big family. The place oozes with charm and the nicely decorated rooms are filled with creature comforts and coziness. Our room had an adjoining sitting room which was right off a private side deck. At night, a fire pit was lit outside for anyone who wanted to sit outside under the stars. The true highlight, however, had to be the amazing breakfast they served. It was so delicious each morning. It's a winner. We loved it and would go back again.

Our first Bed and Breakfast stay

4.6 on July 24, 2016

This was our first B&B stay. I can only say that if they are all like this experience, I will be staying at B&B more often. The Gasparik's are phenomenal hosts.

Excellent stay

5 on January 07, 2015

My husband and I needed a place to stay last weekend because we didn't want to travel 5+ hours in one day for a family event in Vermont. We had the entire house to ourselves, which was very nice. The rooms are very nice and all have private bathrooms. The breakfasts were wonderful and extra care was taken so that I could adhere to my gluten-free diet, which was a plus since I ate salad for all other meals as there weren't many gluten-free options at the local restaurants. Some of the rooms have updated flat screen tvs, but the room we stayed in was lacking an HDMI wire so they picture wasn't in HD. Also, the rooms do not have locks, which I guess may be OK in NH, but that would've been an issue for me if there were others staying in the house since it was too cold to lock up my electronics in the car. Other than that, we loved our stay and look forward to coming back in the spring. If you visit, check out the Shaker Museum up the road, it is AMAZING and the curator, Mike, has a wealth of information on the history, etc. We were there for hours!!!

Superb in every way. The rooms, food and hospitality were great. Kathy and Joe were so warm and genuine!

Love this place!

Friendly hosts, gracious home and a generous, delicious breakfast. All I needed!

Wonderful New Hampshire stay!

4.8 on September 12, 2014

My husband and I stayed at this inn during a weekend away in New Hampshire. The rooms are all very well furnished and the bed was super comfy. The owner Cathy was very friendly and gave us a really delicious breakfast. She and her husband weren't talkative, but that is to be expected when they have so many guests going through. It seems like they use the same common space as the guests for their home.

unique B&B in a beautiful section of NH

4.4 on August 11, 2014

Nice stay; great hosts and unique property - Interesting to see the construction of this old farmhouse and the owners have done a great job making it guest friendly. Had a beautiful evening over a glass of wine on their deck one evening.

Loved it!

5 on February 16, 2014

We booked at the last minute in order to beat a snowstorm. The house was beautifully appointed and our room was so comfy. There was an aroma of fresh baked wonderfulness and our communal breakfast was delicious and very entertaining! Hope our son's lacrosse team plays up here again next year so we can come back and bring some of our team's parents!

Warm welcome at cozy Inn

5 on December 19, 2013

Cathy & Joe are friendly folks in a 200 year old Shaker Farmhouse. Bedrooms are roomy with many thoughtful touches- nightlight in bathroom, clock/radio easy to program, lots of magazines, airy deck out back, great bed. Delicious breakfast, and coffee & cookies, always available. A real find!

Great with accommodations as well as a fantastic breakfast. A wonderful place to stay!!!!

Excellent experience at the Enfield Shaker Farm!

4.6 on December 03, 2013

My fiancee and I stayed at the Enfield Shaker Farm for the night before and after our wedding at the Shaker Museum down the road. We had an amazing experience. The hosts and the breakfast were great. Both of my parents stayed here, as well. My groomsmen and I got ready in our room before the wedding and it made for a great place to hang out and prepare. Highly recommended.

Excellent B&B

4.0 on November 25, 2013

Lovely old Shaker house. Hosts were very warm and welcoming; provided lots of info tips, and delicious cookies! Breakfasts were delicious, nicely balanced with fruit as well as some different recipes. Would definitely go again.

Lovely place to stay in a beautiful setting

5 on October 26, 2013

Shaker Farm is everything you would want in a NH getaway. The house and our room were beautiful, and we slept incredibly well in the comfortable king size bed. Our hosts were charming and welcoming. Breakfast was a wonderful treat, with a wide variety of delicious treats served in a lovely dining room - everything from fresh fruit and juices to freshly made German pancake and homemade crumb cake and bacon - it was a perfect way to start the day. Set in an idyllic location in the countryside, it is only a 15-minute drive from Dartmouth College, and we will definitely stay here again when we visit the school.

Lovely experience

5 on October 17, 2013

Very nice B&B and Innkeepers. Magnificent breakfast. Will come back some day.

Our hosts, Joe and Cathy were lovely

4.4 on October 15, 2013

The room was large, comfortable and breakfasts were delicious and elegantly presented. We even had fresh cookies waiting for us! We would definitely go back!

A great and rejuvenating stop!

5 on August 28, 2013

After a long drive during a road-trip vacation, I felt like I had landed with family. The hosts were genuinely welcoming and friendly. The accommodation perfect for a weary traveler. Breakfast next morning was scrumptious along with delightful banter from other guests.

Excellent stay!

5 on August 28, 2013

Cathy and Joe couldn't have been nicer! We were given an awesome breakfast and on our schedule! Our best B&B stay ever.

Historic Home

5 on August 28, 2013

Lovely rooms, sumptuous breakfasts and accommodating hosts. Only recommendation would be for more reading lamps but host allowed us to move one from another room.

Outstanding B&B

4.8 on August 27, 2013

Our hosts Joe and Cathy were wonderful, friendly, gracious, helpful and understanding. Coupled with delicious gourmet breakfasts served in an elegant setting. Clean and charming rooms, it was a memorable visit.

Comfy spot and wonderful hosts!

Everything especially the bed and the elegant breakfat were perfect. We especially liked the company at our communal breakfast.

Better than at home

5 on August 23, 2013

Joe and Cathy made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. Were helpful, informative, wonderful cooks. Every attention to detail and need for your stay had been thought of and provided. Wish we had stayed longer - they definitely get 12 out of 10.

Historic farmhouse b&b

4.6 on August 20, 2013

Cathy and Joe are wonderful hosts, and their 6 room b&b provides comfortable, quiet accommodations with an excellent breakfast. Rooms are generously proportioned, although the bathrooms, carved out of limited space in an old farmhouse are small. Rooms are air-conditioned, lighting is good, and clock radio proved easy to program. Hosts have a dog, but he is gentle and does not bark.


5 on August 17, 2013

Great place to stay, very friendly, clean. Great breakfast.


5 on August 17, 2013

The Shaker Farm B&B was fabulous! Large room, friendly hosts, comfortable atmosphere.


5 on February 24, 2013

All Innkeepers should spend time with Joe & Cathy and learn the true meaning of warmth, courtesy, professionalism, and joy.

Very hospitable. Great breakfast and bed very comfortable.

Home Away from Home

5 on January 15, 2013

This charming 200-year-old home is rich with history and lovely antiques and comfortable beds, and displays special New England touches that made it a great choice for our fall visit to see the foliage. Each morning the owners Cathy and Joe welcomed us downstairs with fresh fruit and home-baked pastries. As we looked out the bay window and sipped coffee, we watched the colorful birds at the front yard feeder. This B&B's location was perfect for a jaunt into Vermont or through New Hampshire with easy access to major freeways. It was a delightful and memorable home away from home.

A delightful find in the middle of a beautiful area. Joe & Cathy make you feel part of the family and are so helpful. Best B&B I've stayed at!

Quintessential New England

4.8 on November 01, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at this quaint B & B. Joe and Cathy were extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were fabulous!!! Would highly recommend.

Shaker Farm B&B

5 on October 13, 2012

Very friendly -- owners super . Breakfast -- fabulous. 2 courses. 5 stars.

The delight is in the details

5 on October 09, 2012

Cookies warm from the oven, hot teas and coffees are the norm for a fall stay in a New England B&B. Vintage pieces and tasteful linens are expected. What makes this B&B exceptional is the attention to detail in the presentation and service at breakfast. Cathy made sure that the food and the guests were definitely center stage...a dining experience far exceeding what one would expect from a moderately priced establishment. A most beautiful and scrumptious breakfast! A great value!

Fabulous place to stay!

4.8 on October 05, 2012

This was my husband's first time at a B&B. It couldn't have been more pleasant. He's sold. Cathy and Joe are delightful hosts, Cathy's an extraordinary cook, and we will definitely go back if we're in the area.

Gathering with our Coffee Club

Very welcoming, large rooms, breakfasts were amazing. Owners delightful. Truly a great experience.


5 on July 12, 2012

Cathy and Joe were very gracious and accommodating. Their equisite breakfasts were eloquently presented and delicious. Our room was tastefully appointed in a hunt theme with access to a comfortable sitting room and outdoor deck. Truly special.

Best B&B we have ever stayed at.

5 on June 27, 2012

Robert & Gina Reger, We stayed on June 21, 2012. From the moment we walked in the door we were impressed with how friendly Cathy & Joe to the sparking clean room. We were just happy with everything. Then in the morning came the best, breakfast, which was simply amazing. The care and love that these folks put into this B&B is evident throughout. We would certainly stay here again. Thanks very much Cathy and Joe.

Relaxing and Comfort

3.8 on November 07, 2011

We enjoyed a very comfortable two nights at Shaker Farm. Cathy is a very good hostess and served delicious breakfast. Very attentive and charming company.

Wonderful Place for Respite

5 on August 16, 2011

We came to the Shaker Farm Bed and Breakfast for a 5 day respite vacation. We had a wonderful time enjoying the fine breakfasts and the company of fellow guests in the formal dining room. Owners Cathy and Joe were friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend staying at this historic Shaker Bed and Breakfast and would stay their again.

GPS lead us to the past

5 on August 08, 2011

The "hotel" option on our GPS provided the Shaker Farm B&B as a choice. We spent the night in an authentic Shaker house that still had pegs on the bedroom walls -- formerly for hanging up the furniture. Joe & Cathy treated us like friends, and Cathy made a wonderful breakfast. Serendipity -- loved it!

Shaker Farm Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on November 28, 2010

An older farmhouse, so not all of the angles are square and the upstairs ceiling is low, but that's part of the charm. We loved it. Cathy, our hostess, was perfect. Her food was delicious.

Perfect Getaway

5 on October 18, 2010

Our stay began with a warm welcome by innkeepers Joe and Cathy. We had a charmingly decorated, quiet, comfortable room with a king sized bed and love seat. A fluffy down comforter was perfect for the chill of mid-October nights. The dining room with exposed old beams was welcoming and the beautifully set table made us feel like guests at a special event. The full breakfasts were delicious shared with interesting guests. Our two days at Shaker Farm felt like a true vacation. We highly recommend it!

Visit on 10/3/2010

4.2 on October 10, 2010

Arrived at this delightful B & B and was met immediately by Cathy. A warm welcome and tour of the home with delicious chocolate chip cookies to snack on. Our room was tastefully decorated in fox hunting motif with an adjoining sitting room overlooking the yard. Asking for recommendations for dinner, Cathy told us about a wonderful Italian restaurant in town that was excellent. The rest of our evening was very comfortable in our room and sitting room as we went on-line to check e-mails and caught a little football on TV. Very comfortable bed, made for a good night's sleep. The breakfast Cathy served was delicious and the table setting was very elegant. Beginning with fresh strawberries in a long stemmed glass, to die for zucchini bread and wonderfully presented eggs benedict. We would highly recommend staying at this charming and historic B & B.

Peaceful and Historical

5 on August 23, 2010

A splendid B&B with outstanding, gracious hosts. It was like going back in history, bringing back early memories of growing up in the farmlands of New York and Maine. The physical facilities were clean, tastefully and appropriately decorated and very convenient for loading and unloading luggage. The breakfast (and fellow guests that day) was superb and beautifully presented. Hats off to the hardworking Innkeepers for making our stay so memorable. Only complaint--our stay was too short!

Awesome stay!

5 on August 20, 2010

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in August 2010 while we were visiting our daughter in the area. The hosts were wonderful and the room was great. We loved their home and hospitality and look forward to staying there again.

Terrific Place

Gracious hosts, pleasant surroundings, comfortable room.

Short stay

3.4 on October 14, 2009

A few days away to a small B&B, a few miles away, not too much driving time looking for relaxation and fall viewing. It was worth it and glad we had the opportunity to meet 2 nice owners.

Warm & Inviting

5 on October 09, 2009

Joe & Cathy were so friendly and accomodating. The breakfasts were feasts! The banana walnut French toast was my favorite. The original exposed beams in the dining room and kitchen provided a cozy, warm atmosphere and the original Shaker pegs around our bedroom made me feel like I had gone back in time.

stay here for sure!

We had a wonderful weekend at Shaker Farm. The Gaspariks were friendly and hospitable. They made all the guests feel right at home. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The decorating of the whole house was very nicely done and fit the "period" of the house. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!

Bed, Breakfast & Beyond!

5 on July 31, 2009

Shaker Farm & its owners provided everything I needed: A beautiful place to relax, wonderful hospitality, fantastic breakfasts, helpful suggestions as to what to see & where to go in the area, & the freedom to do what I wanted to do when I wanted to. I look forward to returning!

Elegant Surprise

5 on July 28, 2009

You wouldn't expect a B&B named "Shaker Farm" to be elegant, but that is exactly what you find. From the elegant setting of the dining room table on which the delicious & bountiful breakfasts are served, to the furnishings & decor of the guest rooms. Innkeepers Joe & Cathy make you feel right at home & wanting to return.

Excellent Bed & Breakfast

5 on July 22, 2009

Wonderful B&B!! It is a home away from home- very comfortable and relaxing, with an amazing full breakfast every morning! The couple who run it are great, they were very helpful in finding local places to explore.
