Whenever I'm in Kentucky I always try to have at least two meals at Shaker Village. The historic setting is delightful for me. For dessert I always get the lemon pie, an original Shaker recipe. In addition to the meals I eat at the Trustees Dining room, I try to spend some nights in one of the historic rooms in... More

This is a favorite stopping point in our travels from South to North or the opposite. Friendly service, great food from their dining room and fun people providing a look back into the history of the Shakers.

My husband and I stayed here on our 28th Anniversary. They have kept the village well maintained. It is very peaceful and low keyed. They have numerous events, demonstrations and presentation that would interest families, couples or solo travelers. We stayed on the first floor with a queen bed and sitting room. The room was clean and very spacious. I... More

Shaker Village is a great experience for the entire family. I took my Mom and daughter there for breakfast and later toured the village. It was so interesting. The craft shops were filled with gifts for friends and family members, and the food was delicious. Definitely a return trip is pending in our future.

My husband and I went there for dinner and had the best fried chicken of our lives. I also ordered a mint julep and it was fantastic. The grounds were gorgeous for walking around.

We went out of our way for miles to go here. Route 65 out of Indianapolis was a mess and rainy, dangerous highway to be on. The Village is in the country and we saw mansions with beautiful pastures and horses. Check in was simple and our very spacious room was beautiful, clean with a comfortable bed. The humidity was...

Stayed here for an extended weekend with friends. I've been here 3 times already and every time I still learn something new. So many buildings to visit, staff to speak with, and trails to walk. A calm, peaceful place to relax.

This is a good place for a leisurely visit. The craft demonstrations are interesting. The fees to get in are most reasonable. If I were taking a family - or even just a couple - this is a good place for a break. The restaurant was very good. I especially enjoyed the bees.

I can't believe I had never been here before now! Beautiful historic area. We went as a group. We toured the buildings. Very interesting. Enjoyed watching the craftspeople. We ate a nice lunch in the restaurant. It was delicious. Also we took the boat ride. I really enjoyed riding on the Kentucky River.
