The Shaker village is great. There are numerous buildings, but many are part of the hotel complex. There are several buildings of importance to focus on. Go directly to where it says admission, restaurant and hotel check in. This is the Trustees Building, where they have the restaurant. The other buildings are the Meeting Hall where a young woman sang... More

We stayed here on a very cold weekend. The check in process was smooth. Our room was large and tastefully decorated. The bathroom amenities was of excellent quality. This place is pet-friendly, we had our dogs with us. We ate at The Trustee's Table and loved the food. Our server was very knowledgeable. We will certainly be staying here again.

We were looking for something to do on a chilly day and we went to Shaker Village. It was very cool to see the history and walk from house to house. There were animals outside to see as well. We ended with lunch at the restaurant on site.

Not only is this place completely beautiful but it's completely fascinating. The tours are informative and fun. A woman preformed the songs they used to sing and talk about their religious practices, I think she only signs once a day around 11am so don't miss it! They have so many things going on all the time, they had a class... More

A beautiful place to visit and learn about history as well! They have great walking trails and a great pond to watch the lovely waterfowl that visit the region. They have very educational tours and live demonstrations of the way things used to be done. It really makes you appreciate being able to turn up the thermostat!

This past Saturday, a couple of girlfriends and I paid our first time ever visit to Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill. We started our visit with lunch at the "Trustee's Table". Our lunch began with an unusual and quite delicious slaw made with the last of the garden cabbage and served with miniature cornbread muffins. Then we sampled the tomato/celery... More

My daughter lives in Lexington and I visit annually. We had Shaker Village on our to-do list for a few years but never got there. This past October we decided it was time. We began our experience with a Spirit Stroll, which was such fun and I've written about in another review. Then we went back to spend a day... More

We had a nice trip to Shaker Village other than not paying attention to the fact that our lodging was on the 3rd floor and there were not elevators. They were very sweet and offered to let us cancel our reservation since they were full and couldn't move us to a lower floor. But overall the walk through the Village... More
