Welcome to Shaker Meadows, a historic 18th century Berkshires farm. This chalet-style suite in the farm’s charming 1940s farmhouse creamery has a loft, full kitchen, & deck looking out onto the Berkshire mountains. Explore winding paths around 20 acres of farmland or drive 10 mins to Hancock Shaker Village, 15 mins to Tanglewood or Jiminy Peak—a wonderful base for exploring the art, music, and history of the Berkshires. Great for couples, families, & solo adventurers. Kid- and pet-friendly.

Shaker Meadows farmhouse and creamery are nestled in 50 acres of land that includes forested mountains, farmland, and a willow-lined pond that feeds into the Shaker Meadows wetlands. Walking and hiking trails run around the edges of the fields and through the hills.

The Birch Suite is situated in the farm’s 1940s creamery. It has a bedroom (queen bed), en suite bathroom, full kitchen, upstairs loft bedroom (queen, two rollaway single beds), and shared deck overlooking the fields & mountains. Note that the suite is accessed by walking up a flight of stairs. The suite is heated by baseboards and cooled by in-window air conditioners in the summer.

In the mid-20th century, the southern building served as a creamery, processing and bottling milk for local dairies. It now houses four guest units-- in addition to the Birch suite, the building houses the main Creamery unit, a second loft apartment, and an attached carriage house.

We live a few hours away and spend many of our weekends at Shaker Meadows. If we’re not there at the same time, we’re easily accessible by phone & email and are happy to answer any questions about the neighborhood and share our family’s recommendations for favorite activities, restaurants, ice cream, etc.

Know before you book:
-WiFi & cell coverage: Cell coverage is uneven in rural NY and varies by provider. You may have very weak cell coverage depending on your provider.
Wifi: We have upgraded to the ISP's highest level of service. We have consistently been able to have multiple adults on video conferences for hours at a time. However, some guests have reported inconsistent access to Wifi, possibly influenced by so many people in the area working from home and using video.

-Noise: State Rt 22 runs right past the farm (see aerial map). The noise from the road is audible.

-Other guests: The Creamery building contains 4 units. 100 ft away is the farm's 18th century farmhouse, that may also be hosting guests.

-Condition: The creamery units were renovated in the 1980s, and are well maintained but rustic/dated in some respects.

-Accessibility: The Creamery's two loft units are accessed by a set of stairs. The Carriage Suite is ground level with a few shallow interior and exterior steps.

-Pets: We allow guests to bring well-behaved pets with them. Guests with allergies may want to be aware that buildings may have previously had pets in them.

-Animals & bugs: Keep in mind that Shaker Meadows is a farm with lots of animals and insects around. You may be able to see deer, fireflies, rabbits, barn swallows, and redwinged blackbirds...and may also encounter ladybugs (who love to come inside where it's warm), mosquitos, and ticks. We recommend wearing bug spray when exploring the outdoor spaces! We clean the farmhouse consistently, but bugs and critters often find their way inside, so please help us by keeping doors closed.

-No commercial use, loud parties: We do not allow guests to make bookings with clients or use the AirBnb for commercial purposes. Large or loud parties are prohibited.
This apartment is located in New Lebanon. Tanglewood Music Center and Hancock Shaker Village are cultural highlights, and some of the area's attractions include Zema's Nursery and Bousquet Ski Area. Ebenezer II Gifts and Antiques and Hotchkiss Mobile Studio are also worth visiting.
