  • 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.
