Sarah and John's property was extremely clean and very accommodating. I highly recommend it!
Ben and Emma were extraordinary hosts. Since our arrival they made us feel right at home. Comfortable bed for me and my husband ( mattress was very good!). Hot water available. Peaceful. Woke up to the smell of fresh baking goods. Delicous breakfast, made with fresh ingredients all from the farm. Enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the company of sheeps, horses, chickens, cows as well. The best part was spending time with our hosts, talking and sharing around the table. We are looking forward to coming back!
Thank you, we're glad you enjoyed your stay!
This was our third or fourth stay at Killdeer Farm, this time we spent the Easter week-end. Sylvan and family were as always very friendly, as interested in us as we are in their lives. The house was super clean, spacious and well supplied (even the fridge). We enjoyed the peace, the scenery, the conversations, the activities and all the animals. Our stay included our grandchildren, and they also loved the experience. Dave Hanson is also very helpful and kind, so we plan to return again and again. Thank you for everything!
Thank you Bill. We're glad you enjoyed your stay!
Sylvan and his family were very welcoming. Enjoyed the conversations but was not pleased with cleanliness of farm. Was not happy being charged with cleaning of guest house when it wasn’t cleaned to start. Is considered a bed and breakfast but you are not served a breakfast. This was disappointing.
Thank you for your review. The guesthouse is always cleaned before guests arrive. In our email exchange before your arrival, I tried to explain that we do have other B&B's where a full breakfast is served. Since we never want guests to be disappointed, we are careful to state on the "What to Expect" page of our website, "Staying in an Amish guesthouse or B&B is ideal for those who are interested in observing the Amish way of life “up close and personal”, and who are willing to forego some of the creature comforts, conveniences & connection to technological gadgets that we are used to. For most, it is a very enlightening and memorable experience, but it’s not for everyone".
Killdeer guesthouse was so magical and inspiring. Sylvan and his family are so hospitable and welcoming. The farm is massive with so much to explore and there is just so much to be inspired by -- the animals are amazing and majestic (everything from pigs to horses to dogs and cats, cows, chickens, you name it!).
The actual house itself was immaculately clean and they keep it very cozy and warm inside.
I recommend a stay at Killdeer for anyone who wants a change of pace from normal city life -- or for anyone who wants to see the beauty of a working amish farm!
Thank you Malcolm. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay!
To Chris & Katie; Thank you for sharing your home with us. Congratulations on providing one of our most memorable vacations. To say we were pleased would be an understatement. I'd love to say "Keep up the good work", but instead, let's just say "Enjoy your retirement." To everyone else; we'd like to say, "If you haven't had the privilege of staying here, you missed out on the most relaxing times of your life." No TV, no internet, no phone, no worries. Can't wait until we come back in September. Pet Lucy for us.
We decided to stay at Otterbein farm because it was NOT in Lancaster County. We wanted to get an authentic Amish experience away from all the tourists in Lancaster and that is what we got!! Jon and Lena could not have been any more hospitable!! We talked with them for extended periods of time about the Amish way of life and they were also interested in learning about us. Our children got a chance to play with their litter of puppies and pick raspberries and watch as Jon herded in the sheep with his border collie. We also got to chat with their daughter and her family down the road and take a buggy ride. The homemade breakfast was delicious! The property was peaceful and the house was sparkling clean. If you want to really experience Amish life look no further!! This is the place to go away from the crowds in Lancaster. Can't wait to go back for another visit!
Thank you for your review of Otterbein Acres Amish Bed & Breakfast!
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful long weekend in the Primrose Room at Olde Stone Guesthouse.
The room was large and very clean with everything we needed to prepare some lunches and dinners and enjoy the expansive view of the cornfields from our private patio. Our host Florence made incredible breakfasts every morning and made sure to ask us what we would like the next morning and when we would like to eat. Most mornings we ate with Florence and we were thankful for the good conversation and cultural exchange (I am from Canada and my wife is from France). The farm and property are well kept and the garden has clearly been cultivated with affection. The result is a magical property perfect for a weekend getaway.
We would have loved to have stayed longer and hope to return soon. A big warm thank you!
I'm glad you enjoyed your Lancaster PA Bed & Breakfast experience at the Olde Stone Guesthouse!
Perfect weekend with my daughters. Sadie and her family were fantastic hosts. The farm house was immaculate. Sadie was very accommodating and couldn’t have been nicer. I’ve been going to Lancaster for 35 years and this was by far the nicest, cleanest and most spacious place we have ever stayed. It is truly a beautiful farm. The location was fabulous. Also, Dave Hanson was very attentive. I had to contact him before we arrived and his responses getting back to me was within an hour, even though it was a Saturday. Can not wait until our return trip back.
Thank you for your review! I'm glad the Killdeer Farm Guesthouse worked out so well for you.
I stayed at Ben and Emma’s house for three nights, everything was excellent, i have no words to describe how much I enjoyed my stay there. Ben is a excellent host and showed me around all the farms and the Amish style of life. We went for a buggy ride, ride a horse, went for a walk every morning... Emma is an awesome cook, all of the meals were delicious and I also spent thanksgiving with them. I had a chance to dress like an Amish girl too which was an awesome experience! I definitely recommend this place and I can’t wait to be back!!
