We live in nearby Falmouth, Maine and the Shaker Village at Sabbathday Lake is a place we often take guests, especially international guests who have never heard of the Shakers. They are always fascinated. The Village is about 25 miles from downtown Portland, a 40 minute drive. The docents who give the tours are very competent. In the fall, the small store at the Village sometimes sells the honeycrisp apples grown on the Shaker farm. Those apples are simply the best I have had in my 73 years of sampling all over the world. We have not visited in the last year but have been five or six times in all over the past nine years.
