Shaker Hill Bed and Breakfast

Shaker Hill Bed and Breakfast ~ 877-516-1370
259 Shaker Hill Road, Enfield NH
Welcoming, restored country inn with comfortable accommodations and sumptuous breakfasts. We make you kindly welcome.

We invite you to be our guests in our comfortable, recently updated 1790's colonial style home. Originally home to a Revolutionary War colonel and his family of seven children, the house has been modified over the years. Most notable was the addition of a wonderful wraparound porch where you can relax and unwind from your day's travel. The house sits on 24 acres which abound with wildlife.

We are committed to assuring your stay will be relaxing and memorable. All guest rooms are newly renovated - each one is distinctive. All have private baths, restful chairs and lots of light. The original wide-board floors set off the easy charm of the carefully selected antique furnishings which make each room unique. The living room is yours to enjoy with games, puzzles, books or television.

Start your day with a hearty, homemade breakfast - fresh-baked scones, muffins or coffeecakes, specially prepared fruits, with hot pancakes, waffles, or any of a number of wonderful egg dishes. Coffee, tea, and the always-full cookie jar are available at any time. Afternoon tea features more fresh-baked goodies and either hot or cold drinks. The Shaker Hill Bed and Breakfast is in the heart of the Upper Valley, your gateway to a perfect New England Vacation. Let us be your guide.

Enjoy activities at Dartmouth in nearby Hanover (we are 15 minutes from the college), the Hood Museum and Hopkins Center. Visit the White Mountains or the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Hike local trails in the summer or cross-country ski in winter. Enjoy downhill skiing with a choice of slopes located from a few minutes to an hour away. Browse the antique centers in Quechee and Woodstock, VT (20-30 minutes from the Inn). Witness nature's beauty in the flaming colors of fall. Attend country auctions, craft fairs, farmers' markets, church bazaars and local events. Visit LaSalette Shrine and the Lower Shaker Village of Enfield, the Shaker Museum and the Great Stone Dwelling. Visit St. Gaudens National Historic Site and the longest covered bridge in the country.

Go bicycling or hiking in our beautiful parks and countryside. Enjoy boating and fishing; golf at any of our fine local courses or just practice your putting on our on-site putting green. Mascoma Lake is just down the hill and Crystal Lake is nearby. Take a short drive to visit either Lake Sunapee, Lake Winnipesaukee or the Cog Railway at Mt. Washington. You can participate in local foot or bicycle races; secure bicycle storage is available.
