What a unique place to visit! If you love religious history, you will love this. Has lots and lots and old houses, eating and cooking utensils, farming equipment goes on and on. You must visit their meeting house. One of the tour guides sings the old Shaker hymns as you enter and gives you all the background on their beliefs.... More

we stayed overnight at shakertown and enjoyed the room.we also did the tours in the morning although a bit disorganized were very complete. We also made reservation for breakfast-very disappointing-it was buffet style which is ok-but no selection and food very bland-the service was none-existent -had to ask more than once for coffee refill and when we asked for water...

We chose Shaker Village's special farm-to-table dinner to celebrate my birthday. Unfortunately, it was a less-than-celebratory experience. The setting was delightful. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Alcohol flowed generously. If basing this review on that alone, I would have given it a "5." The food, though....came up way short of our expectations. It was definitely a "1." We don't particularly... More

This is a 3,000 acre village with a number of original buildings from the original Shaker village that was on the grounds. You can stay overnight at a reasonable price. The food is a little pricey and so are a number of things at their Craft Store. You can sign-up for activities and actual help make something or do a... More

I love to visit places that have lots of history and stories to tell. Shaker village did not disappoint. The buildings have been restored and it's an easy village to get around. In most of the buildings were guides to explain things and answere questions. Many artifacts were on display with lots af printed stories. Several builds had working craftsman.... More

We stayed in the cooper's suite as a brief stop-over on our drive from Ontario to Florida. Price was only slightly more expensive than a regular hotel, in an great atmosphere. Beautiful landscape, comfortable rooms, plenty of activities for both kids and adults to see and do. The horse-drawn wagon tour was interesting, though a bit expensive. Highly recommend this...

This attraction should not be missed. A very interested history of an almost extinct sect is presented in a very engaging way. The communal and chaste practices of the Shakers are examined and their way of life explained. There are many original buildings to explore and many focused presentations during the day. We stayed for 3 hours and wished we... More

Budget cuts have made this attraction free on Mondays because you can't view the inside of the houses and nothing is going on but if you wish to just walk the grounds, then it's ok. The dining room and gift shops are open.

Our family has been visiting Shaker Village for years. It is the perfect place to visit any time of the year. The events and attractions go hand in hand with the seasons. Go in the winter and it is all about Christmas. Go in the fall and it is all about pumpkins, harvest, leaves and halloween. Well, you get the... More
