Shaker Village is one of those places we just keep returning to. We love it so much we became members. Very beautiful grounds and restored buildings in addition to miles of hiking. Come for a visit and stay the day.

This is a great place to walk and view this unique property. Everything is well maintained. This would be a great place to eat lunch or take a picnic lunch.

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