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

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

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

Outstanding in every way

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

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

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

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!!!
