The Shaker Tavern, built in 1869 as a business venture for the South Union Shakers, housed a hotel for the “people of the world.” For more than 30 years, the Shaker Tavern maintained a thriving business, catering to the Victorian railroad travelers who stopped at South Union. Today, the Shaker Tavern is open once again to the public for overnight accommodations. A dedication to Shaker goodness combines with the “worldly” Victorian atmosphere to provide a unique bed & breakfast experience.

This package includes

  • Exclusive use of the 1869 Shaker Tavern, the grounds and public areas on the first floor. The Shaker Tavern will seat up to 60 guests in the dining rooms and 15-20 guests on the grand porch. There are 18 acres surrounding the Shaker Tavern, allowing space for parking, pictures, and a wonderful time! Tent rental and setup to accommodate guests is possible on the lawn adjacent to the Tavern. Rental of the tent is not part of this agreement and must be arranged by the party.
  • 8 hour rental of the 1869 Shaker Tavern & surrounding grounds and public areas on the first floor and one hour rehearsal the day before the event
  • Electric service
  • Space for guests & parking

PLEASE NOTE: The Shaker Tavern operates as a Bed & Breakfast offering six rooms year round. Your event will need to coordinate with the Shaker Tavern’s guests. These rooms are available for rent for your event through reservations. By law, we cannot allow any party to use the kitchen but caterers can prep or store food the day of the event.
