  • It was so much fun to come visit here. The views are phenomenal. The staff are all super friendly and kind. The farm-to-table restaurant is fantastic. This place is just super special. It's also very interesting to learn about the Shaker Village and its history!
  • There are not enough stars on this site to convey how amazing this place is! Between their historic property to their wonderful restaurant and staff (seriously, ask for Kelly she was amazing too!), everything about this place perfection. They had live music tonight, Carrie and Taylor are always the best addition to any event, but tonight I couldn't have asked for better. Get the buttermilk pie it is out of this world.
  • Love the history and the architecture at this place. There are numerous tours you can take, so you could easily plan an entire day here. Learning about the Shakers while on the property is a great experience. Parking is easy, and restrooms are clean. You can even stay here overnight if you wanted to in an original Shaker building (with some modern amenities).
  • Gorgeous place. Very interesting and Historic. I definitely recommend the tours. The food at the restaurant was delicious.
  • One of my favorite places in the US. Not a rebuilt village but the actual village in which the Shakers once lived. The architecture and state of restoration is amazing and you can even stay overnight on the grounds. Be sure to eat at the Refectory and allow yourself to go to a simpler way of life. Beautiful !!!
