I enjoyed the day here and have been several times but I have seen it change. It is losing some of the unique draw due to demands from the public. I enjoy the food there although I do think it is a bit pricey. Take a step back in time here while you still can.

Stopped off on our way home through Kentucky. Spent a lovely night in the inn. We had a room in one of the old buildings. Rooms are sparse in the Shaker style but well equipped. Beds were comfy. Each room has its own nice bathroom with the usual amenities. Rooms have coffee makers. Ate a really tasty meal at the... More

Room was great, service was great, food just okay. We watched a singing and Shacker education performance in the Meeting House and it was wonderful the lady who performed was great used to be a teacher and it showed.😄

This is a bit of a step back in time. We LOVED every minute of or stay with them. Our room was very humbly & sparsely furnish with exactly what you needed. The beds were very comfortable. Only a few channels on TV. Rooms are NOT equipped with wi-fi. It just would ruin the ambience. There are a few places... More

Upon moving south to Kentucky, we took our family for a historic day out to Shakers Village. I highly recommend this location for a family outing with lots of living examples in the meeting house, gardens, gift shop, ..etc. we did not spend the night so I can not speak to the accommodations. We took a boat trip down the... More

We have visited and lodged at Shaker Village for many years now......the pleasant in Pleasant Hill is correct.......if you are expecting to be pampered and on your wi fi and cells 24/7.....don't visit here.....and don't request this place to adapt....you have missed the whole point of visiting a Shaker Village if you are expecting plush accommodations and spas and hot...

Enjoy staying right in the midst of this 3000 acre National Historic Landmark. Our room was quiet, peaceful, spotlessly clean - furnished with hand made reproductions of period furniture. Up to date bathroom. Deer greeted us upon arrival, and the human staff was warmly welcoming and professional. Sunday luncheon was amazing. Gift shop features locally made brooms, woven items, pottery,... More

We have stayed at Shaker Village numerous times over the last 20 years. The village is beautiful, but services have been drastically cut back. Ten months ago I booked 4 rooms for a weekend. Unfortunately, the rooms were spread from one end of the village to the other. The price has increased 20% and overnight guests now have to pay... More

Our room was in the main building where you check in, on the 3rd floor. It was a GORGEOUS (and clean)room with shaker style furniture, a memory foam mattress, a curved wall and beautiful floors. However, being upstairs from the main check in area, dining room and gift shop was very noisy. Not at bedtime because no one was down... More

Visiting the village is nice. If it is raining, there are no close parking lots to the Trustees Hall for eating and it is a walk from accommodations that are in the old restored buildings. We stayed last weekend and it was quite chilly. I asked why the heat was blowing cold air and I was told that the heating... More
