Welcome to Shaker Village

Explore 3,000 Acres of Discovery

Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill is a landmark destination that shares 3,000 acres of discovery in the spirit of the Kentucky Shakers. Home to the third largest Shaker community in the United States between 1805 and 1910, the vibrant site offers experiences designed to ignite curiosity, expand imaginations and inspire generations. This is where discovery starts—but it doesn’t end until your hands are dirty and you’ve tried something new. Plan a visit to Shaker Village this year and find the explorer in you. Spirited hospitality, fresh-air adventures and great discoveries are just around the corner.


Great discoveries call for great explorers and today, Shaker Village is reconnecting its campus to inspire a new community of adventurers, learners, makers and doers. Just like Shaker farms were hubs of agricultural ingenuity, The Historic CentreThe Farm and The Preserve are centers of exploration—jumping-off points for trailblazing experiences.

Find architectural wonders, plan a backyard garden, try your hand at SUP Yoga, then taste a new dish fresh-from-the-garden. Bring the kids and discover spaces to learn and play, while searching for critters in the creek, finding new four-legged friends and discovering your own simple gifts.

Shaker Village has been a warm beacon of hospitality for more than 200 years. Named a top hidden travel destination by BBC News, The Inn is much more than a traditional hotel. Guest rooms, suites and private cottages—each offering distinct character—are located in 13 restored Shaker buildings. Rooms are comfortably appointed with Shaker reproduction furniture, original hardwood floors and spectacular countryside views.

Visit The Inn


Dine on traditional favorites and seasonal Kentucky dishes prepared with straight-from-the-garden ingredients.
