In the heart of the Bluegrass region, Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill offers a leisurely pace to relax and unwind. Surrounded by 3,000 acres of rolling hills near Lexington, Shaker Village features newly refurbished guest rooms at the inn, suites and private cottages spread throughout 13 restored 19th century buildings. Furnished with Shaker reproductions, rooms have Tempur-Pedic mattresses and TVs that unobtrusively tuck away in cabinetry. For more info, go to www.shakervillageky.org.

Paducah, where an arts renaissance has been unfolding over the past decade, boasts a wealth of opportunities geared to gal pals. You can schedule workshops with a range of artists and crafters in the vibrant LowerTown arts district.
