  • Don't forget to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking a room. This site will compare countless booking web sites and normally will have prices much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This place is the best rated in the area. I've been staying here for a very long time. If you stay for a few days you definitely won't be disappointed. A great place for adding culture and history to any vacation in the area. Beautiful grounds to explore, delicious food to enjoy and tours that are all worth while. The staff is knowledgeable and are all required to do their own research on the shakers using journals kept by the shakers themselves. Super cool!
