A very kind friend is putting me up for the WEG and I will not need my room during the Eventing dates of the WEG.

It is a room with two double beds at the Inn At Shaker Village (http://www.shakervillageky.org/the_inn_at_shaker_village/accommodations/). The cost is $199/night plus taxes, which brings the total to $902.82.

The Inn at Shaker Village is nicer and/or closer than other hotels in its price range for the WEG. (For comparisons go to https://www.planningpoint.net/V2/Registrations/index.cfm?EventID=976 ) You will not be staying in a dingy old motel but will instead have:

Shaker Reproduction Furniture
Hardwood Floors
Contemporary Private Bathrooms
Tempur-Pedic Swedish Mattresses
Feather Pillows
Television (satellite television in select rooms and in public sitting room)
Gilchrist & Soames Soaps, Conditioning Shampoo & Lotion
Hair Dryer
Daily Housekeeping Service
Complimentary High-Speed Wireless Internet Access (in select rooms and in public sitting room)http://www.shakervillageky.org/i/_.gifI have already paid for half of the cost. You would be responsible for taking over the remaining two payments and for reimbursing me for what I have already paid. After the end of this month, I will have paid 75% of the cost, so you would reimburse me for 75% and owe the hotel 25% (through the WEG Housing Bureau).

The Inn at Shaker Village is nicer and/or closer than other hotels in its price range for the WEG.

I should qualify this with the words "nicer and/or closer than other currently available hotels in its price range." Some bargain-hunting detectives were able to book nice rooms that are closer in for less, but I was never able to find such a deal and I think this one is about as good as it gets!

I've had some questions about the location. The WEG parking will be at UKY's Coldstream Research Campus. Here are directions from the Inn to the parking:
