The Simple Gifts of Shaker Village
Overnight guests stay in the same buildings where Shakers worked and slept, supping on Kentucky corn pudding and tart lemon pie. The bedrooms and suites, though comfortable, reflect the essence of Shaker simplicity. Hand-woven rugs cover oak floors, and sunlight pours through rippled glass behind muslin curtains. What might seem barren in winter feels perfect in spring, a season for throwing open sash windows, breathing deeply and renewing the spirit.
