This is a regular stop for us, because it's just lovely. Strolling along tree lined walkways, taking in the restored buildings, rolling hills, gardens, and farm animals. The craftspeople are so very friendly and informative. We are thinking about staying overnight on our next visit.

Such a fun stop on a day trip. It was a self guided tour and the home and grounds were just wonderful.

Going to Shaker Village never gets old! It is a scenic step back in time. The architecture, the food, the gift shops, the special programs are all spot on! A must for any traveler in the central Kentucky area!

3 Gift Shops, Restaurant and a Hotel....lots of locked up buildings on an old timey farm. Not a lot to do here but walk and walk and walk. Don't expect any Shakers...they're all dead! Still not sure what the admission price was for.

Yes, there are a couple of waterfalls that you can hike to. They were hard to find but after asking several staff members we were successful in finding them.

We stayed at the Beaumont Inn in Harrodsburg. There are stairs but also an elevator. About 10/15 minutes away.
