A nice place to visit for any age. Those with lots of energy have plenty of space and freedom to roam freely. The pace is leisurely and the country setting is serene. You feel as if you've stepped back in time to the best there was to offer. The architecture is impressive and the inventiveness of the Shaker people is to be admired. I would recommend doing the guided tours, at least for your first visit. This will raise your appreciation of the Shaker lifestyle. Also, be sure to enjoy a meal while there. I would recommend trying a cooked, plate type meal, rather than a club sandwich type fare....get some home cooking, it will be worth it. The atmosphere itself is worth the sit down.
Visiting during a special event is fun, too. We like to visit the Apple Harvest Fest in September. Shaker Village is a place I visit repeatedly.
