A Long-Expected Party Registration Information

You will not be able to reserve through the Inn at Shaker Village web site as all of the accommodations have been reserved for us. They will be assigned on a first come-first served basis. Attendees age 16 and under room for free if staying in the same room as their parents.

Should you wish to extend your stay beyond the Thursday night to Sunday morning you will be able to do so at our special rates. We strongly suggest to reserve early in that case as the rooms are blocked off for us only during the Thursday night through Sunday morning period, so room space may fill up with other guests not related to the party.

You can read more about the rooms here.


All meals from Thursday night dinner through to the Sunday morning breakfast are included in the registration fee. Of course this will be topped off with the banquet at Bilbo and Frodo's Birthday Party. This also includes all taxes and gratuities.
