With the boom in Berkshire tourism some years ago, West Stockbridge developed into an arts-and-crafts browsing and shopping town.

The town of West Stockbridge MA is a different municipality altogether from Stockbridge, 4 miles to the east, and neighboring Lenox (map).

With the broad Shaker Mill Pond to the north, emptying into the Williams River which wends its way southward through the village, it's a picturesque spot.

Most visitors enjoy their time here, meandering along the short streets, peering in windows and shops, having a meal or a cool refresher.

A small Information Kiosk is set up on Albany Road opposite the historic red-barn Shaker Mill with details on local businesses, shops, inns and restaurants.

Check out the two old-time Baldwin stores facing one another on Center Street: Arthur W Baldwin Hardware and Charles Baldwin & Sons, makers of pure vanilla extract.

Two long-time restaurants are Truc Orient Express serving Vietnamese cuisine; Rouge Restaurant & Bistro specializing in French-inspired cuisine; and the Shaker Mill Tavern for burgers, steaks, pasta and pizza.

For lodgings, there's the 4-star, 9-room Shaker Mill Inn, a luxury bed-and-breakfast. Guest rooms have fireplaces and kitchenettes, and some have skylights and jacuzzis. More...
