Great Day

We had a great day at the Shaker Village. We took lots of photos. We sat by the magnolia tree and had lunch. It was a perfect day!

Interesting village. We thought it would take longer to tour. We had hoped to see more crafts than we did. The wagon ride is over-priced. Admission is $10 each as was the wagon right. skip the wagon

The Shakers were a dedicated hardworking bunch that made contributions to U S history. This is the largest collection of historical building in the country. Paired up with the river boat ride & lunch made for an enjoyable day. Lots to absorb and recommend the 30 minute guided info's at the meeting house & walking tour. There is much to... More

One draw back...both bathrooms are upstairs and we had to climb a steep stairway to go upstairs. The house has AC, kitchen, two large upstairs bedrooms/bathroom, dining room and a large living room area for us to sit and visit. We toured... More

The rooms were nicely decorated but in traditional Shaker style. The building we were in had 2 large gathering areas where our family could get together and talk. We were there for my brother's wedding. There were so many fun activities when we weren't doing wedding activities. The animals were fun to see. We're cat lovers and there were several... More

This is a wonderful place to visit. It is absolutely gorgeous. If you do not want to pay to go inside and look around you can just wander around on the grounds just outside. There are hiking and biking trails and there's a beautiful waterfall off of one of the trails. It is very peaceful and relaxing here.

I recently had the opportunity to spend a few days at Shaker Village for a business retreat. The accommodations were wonderful! You have to remember this is an experience! The bed may be smaller and the room more sparse but it is the perfect place to unplug and unwind! The food was amazing in both the restaurant and through the... More
