My husband and I were in Danville , Ky this weekend visiting our son at Centre College. We decided did not want to stay at one of the generic hotel chains like we did last year and instead went down the road to the Shaker Inn.
The Inn is part of the Shaker Village which is a lovingly restored living monument to the "Shakers" that lived there until about 1910.
While the Shaker Inn will never be a "five star hotel" it was a delightful place to stay. The charm of the old style rooms (but happily with up to date facilities, TV etc.) and the really wonderful staff make for a very comfortable stay. It was wonderful to wake up in a place that looks like a Norman Rockwell painting! Too beautiful to describe!
