Shaker Hill Bed and Breakfast

259 Shaker Hill Road , Enfield, NH 03748 USA (Show map)


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.

Wonderful Stay

5 on August 29, 2016

My husband and I feel so lucky to have stayed here. Nancy is a warm, gracious host who goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome and comfortable. Her breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented. Nancy has maintained the character of her home but updated it with modern conveniences. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and highly recommend the Shaker Hill B&B.

Great place to stay!

We had a terrific stay the the Shaker Hill B & B. Nancy is a wonderful hostess and her breakfasts are super. The house is lovely, full of antiques of all kinds. Nancy was very helpful with things to do in the area, and her dogs were very friendly and well behaved. Would love to return! Rod and Gail

Highly Recommended!

Our room (and bathroom) was beautifully decorated and very clean. (I remember the white nice crisp sheets) Many, many antiques all through the house, it was fun just to look around. Nancy, the owner, went through extra effort to make such a nice breakfast for us (stuffed warm pears, yum!) We were there in mid October so experienced the colorful leaves and foliage, gorgeous! There are several big dogs in the house, but they are very well behaved and friendly. Worth the money! Very pleasant, very clean and friendly staff. Visitors from Stetsonville, WI

Dog Lovers Delight!

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

Best Ever

5 on October 13, 2014

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.

Felt like home!

Quiet weekend getaway

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"

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.
