I was pleased to learn that the overnight accommodations in the Great Stone Dwelling will be available on a more frequent basis than in the past. Having spent several nights in your historic and gracious dwelling, I found the rooms to be spacious and very well maintained. Thank you for maintaining such a lovely property, inside and out. The peaceful surroundings provide a quiet respite from the hectic world. —Helen Bates


After a long beautiful day riding our bikes on the northern rail trail, the Shaker room was a nice ending. As one might expect of the Shakers, the room was simple but comfortably furnished. Everything was clean and in order. There was far more space than we expected. Enfield and the lake also add to the overall experience. Would highly recommend the Museum for a stay. —AirBnB Customer, August 2015

What a great experience! A night in a real live Museum! The accommodations were sparse, but more than adequate. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful in telling us about things to do in the area. Michael even gave us a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum! I highly recommend this as a place to have an unusual experience! We have been telling everyone about it. —AirBnB Customer, September 2015

My husband and I stayed as overnight guests on May 28th. Being able to stay in a peaceful place with so much history was a real treat. The room was spacious and clean. The hostess did a just right job of being helpful and friendly. I will be spreading the word. Thank you! —Catherine W.
