Shaker Mill Books
Clean and thoroughly organized, the Shaker Mill bookstore covers an array of genres that will have you browsing for hours. A couple of comfortable chairs are conveniently placed so that the tour of books is more relaxing. This is a one-floor building featuring a couple of rooms where books that are either new or slightly used can be found. Perfect for book-worms, a lot of the books are discounted to ensure that no one leaves empty-handed. Some antique pieces can be found here, which is perfect for the historic mill building. The open doors and windows show a beautiful river and trees that complement the bookstore.
The Shaker Mill bookstore is hosted by Eric Wilska (the owner) who gives a helping hand when you’re looking for something in particular or just clueless about where to start. The rocking chairs give you a chance to sample a book without moving too far from your current browsing point. You won’t miss this but the book art and creative book sculptures in here enliven the book store and its books. Local writers’ work is featured which makes the store much more personable. Regional items are to look out for, such as Pure Maple Syrup.
Conveniently, after you’ve spent a couple of hours with your nose in a book, it’d be best to grab a cup of coffee and a quick bite. Just a minute down the road is Six Depot Roastery and Cafe. It’s close enough to fill your tummy and brood over your findings then come right back in after. If you’re looking to stay in West Stockbridge a little longer then consider Shaker Mill Inn for accommodation. It’s a walking distance from restaurants and a few attractions around that might be interesting. Do visit the Diana Felber Gallery if you’re artsy and love paintings. It’s just 4 minutes away from the Inn and Shaker Mill Books.
