Activities & Attractions


The Inn at Shaker Mill Falls is located near the small town of New Lebanon, in northeastern Columbia County, New York. Woodland trails around the Inn provide the perfect setting for walking or sitting.  A waterfall outside the Inn’s back door rushes down into a small stream.  Nearby is Queechy Lake for swimming and boating and the Berkshire Mountains for hiking and skiing. ​ Our location in the foothills of the Berkshires along the eastern side of the Hudson Valley region in New York provides endless opportunity for entertainment, exploration, leisure, and memorable experience of all kinds.  Just to the east of us is the highly creative and scenic Berkshire region of Western Massachusetts. To our west lies the patchwork rural countryside and characteristic villages of the middle Hudson Valley, reaching up to the Albany capital region. Each of these has so much to offer the new or seasoned visitor.  The following brief listing of top area attractions may give you some ideas in planning your visit. We also host a variety of classes, workshops, and retreats. Find additional detail below and you can always CONTACT us directly for information, recommendations or unique experiences!
