This was my second visit to Shaker Village, and I learned things I had either forgotten or hadn't heard before. Many of the buildings are open and some have guides to give you more information. The grounds are beautiful. They have several farm animals and a lovely garden area.

We recently visited for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. We took the horse drawn carriage tour and our guides were very knowledgeable and engaging. I wish we had allotted more time for our visit because there is so much to see, do and experience. Will definitely try to get back for another visit on a future trip... More

We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and learning about the history of Shaker Village. I did not know much about Shakers prior to this visit but the guide provided us with very good information.

I had been here a couple of times a long time ago. It is much nicer now. However, web page made it very clear that I would not be able to do many things as I have trouble climbing stairs. While my friends stayed here, we stayed in a downtown motel. The first night we ate dinner and had a... More

Extremely well maintained, friendly, knowledgeable staff, simply beautiful, and a great value! I have only been there a couple times in the fall, but it's absolutely gorgeous. And a trip with one adult and two kids (full day at Shaker Village and an hour long river cruise on the Dixie Belle) was only $40. We packed snacks and a picnic... More

My daughter & I decided just before my annual visit that we'd like to do the spirit stroll at Shaker Village. We got to the village shortly before the stroll & were pleased to discover that the admission after 5:00 is half off - though we were prepared to pay full price. The walk took place at dusk. Adult group... More

It was a perfect fall day and the area is gorgeous. The tour guide was very educated on the history of the place and the shakers. the best part was just being outside in a beautiful place.

My friend and I were hanging around Dansville, Kentucky, while our husbands participated in a Civil War reenactment in Perryville this last weekend and decided to visit. Arriving just after 12:00 pm, we were able to experience a horse drawn ride around the village and the two young lady drivers were very knowledgeable about the history. Ate a late lunch... More

I visited the dining hall with four friends. The menu said that they would add 18% to checks of groups of six. So we had 5. My bill was $21.09. I added $4 as a tip. when the charge came in on my bank account, the charge was $28.00. When I called to resolve the issue, I was completely disregarded.
