We spent three nights at the Fisher family's lovely guest house. We were warmly welcomed and we had all we needed. Mary kindly left us home baked cookies, vanilla yogurt, home baked bread, and delicious jam. The peace and quiet were heavenly and the only sound we heard was the clipclop of horses on the road. The house was beautifully decorated with inspirational verses on the walls. Mary had a shelf of Amish novels in our bedroom and I read several while I was there. What a delight to wake up to yogurt and granola, warm toast and jam. We loved the location, as it was quiet and private, and yet also close to the tourist attractions and the city of Lancaster. We enjoyed a lovely Amish meal with a very kind lady named Sadie and learned a bit about how the Amish people live. She explained about energy sources and scooters and showed us her wringer washing machine. We truly enjoyed this stay and feel blessed to have met Mary and her family. Thank you for all you did to make our visit so memorable. We hope to stay with you again!
We're glad you enjoyed your stay at the Dutch Homestead and your Amish dinner with Sadie!
When we heard we could dine WITH AN AMISH FAMILY, our Lancaster trip was complete! The dinner was only 10 minutes from our lodging and GPS got us there without a problem.
They hosted 13 people that evening, representing 5 different countries; China, Japan, Germany, Canada and USA!!
Sarah brought dish after dish of food straight from the stove or oven right to the table... she was very prepared:) Her husband ate with us and was quite a good conversationalist. Their 3 young children ate in another room due to space issues. We were served chicken, meatballs (store bought), mashed potatoes (maybe see tore bought) and gravy, green bean casserole, bread (store bought), her own strawberry preserves, applesauce, her own pickled beets and carrot salad all on real dishes, not Chinet! Dessert was Boston Cream Cake with ice cream and her own raspberry sauce! Everything was "all you can eat" and we did!!!
After dinner, Sarah played her harmonica for us and answered any questions we had. Due to language barriers, the q & a was short.
One family bought a dozen eggs from the Beilers before we left.
All in all, it was pleasant.... yet disappointing. The meal was advertised "The food is traditional Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine and there’s plenty for all". While the second half was true, our party of 5 questioned whether the Amish truly ate that much store bought food. If some of our meal was store bought, how much more was also store bought? A big part of me just didn't want to know.
We spent (donated) $100.00. Was it worth it?
Thank you for your review. After reading your great description of the meal and the interesting gathering of people from different countries & cultures (including live music), I would say for me, yes, it would definitely be worth the donation of $20 per person. However it's helpful to know that we all have different expectations & tastes, so the Amish dinner experience may not be for everyone.
Since we were here in January 2019, we were happy to have more than adequate heating throughout the entire apt! The fils out couch was uncomfortable, but most of them are anyway. Extremely clean place. Many items provided: coffee, real cream, Bottled Spring Water, shampoo, soap, an array of personal products, fantastic king size bed with very comfortable mattress, granola bars, hot choc packs, etc! The cost of the apt itself was reasonable, but the various taxes were excessive. I would highly recommend this website and location to others and will use it myself again:)
Thank you for this first review of the Coachman's Suite. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay!
I have been interested in Amish for a long time since I had lived in Ohio with my family. So staying in Amish home had been a dream for me for a long time. Finally my dream came true!
I stayed in Country Lane Farm Guesthouse with my husband. It was such a very good experience. The atmosphere of the farm, all facilities in the guesthouse, warm hospitality of the owners and so on......we were satisfied with all of them. We hope that we must come back in the future!
Moreover it was so good we could contact the arranger (or organizer) named Dave smoothly. Whenever we asked some questions, he wrote us back promptly. We asked him to let us know another Amish farm tour and correct address and time of Amish dinner. He answered promptly and concisely. It was so helpful. Thank you, Dave!
A dinner served by Sarah, her sister and their children was so wonderful, and a tour in Old Windmill Farm was also splendid and impressive. We will never forget.
Again, we will come back in the future. We appreciate Mr.and Mrs. Stoltzfus. Dave and all that we met!
Thank you for your review of the Country Lane Farm Guesthouse. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay there, as well as your Amish dinner and Amish farm tour. I hope you may return again in the near future for another visit!
We really enjoyed our stay! Sara is very nice and brought us every morning a nice homemade breakfast. The children are adorable, The bed and breakfast is very comfortable and clean. We stayed for 3 days but I would have loved to stay longer. If you are interested in amish life and culture It is a special experience to stay in an Amish b&b.
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your Amish Bed & Breakfast experience in Lancaster County Pennsylvania!
Our week stay was a pure blessing. The serenity of the rolling hills and horse pasture in front off the guest house, watching the cows being milked and crops harvested outweighed not having a tv or WiFi. The guesthouse was cozy and comfortable with plenty of room. Our host family was precious and we were served fresh yogurt parfaits, homemade bread and jam every morning except Sunday when we cooked for ourselves including eggs from their hens. We had 3 dinners scheduled in Amish homes which were delicious and special in that we got to hear their stories. We highly recommend staying longer than a couple of days for an opportunity to take in all the farm life. Great communications with Dave Hanson who suggested things to see and do. We will definitely be returning!
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a memorable stay at Beacon Hollow Farm. I wish everyone could stay for a week like you did!
Our visit was just perfect. The guesthouse was very clean and well taken care of. My daughter loved being able to interact with the younger Fisher children. I loved the time I had to talk to the mom Mary. The fresh made bread was amazing! Thank you for fulfilling my dream of getting to stay with the Amish.
Thank you for your review of the Dutch Homestead Guesthouse. I'm glad you enjoyed your time with the Fisher family.
Being at Ben & Emma's for four nights was a pleasure. They were kind, genuine and well-read. We went knowing that we would be "unplugged" and it was a very good change from being in NYC. We went to bed early and got up early to a wonderful breakfast. The entire visit was completely down-to-earth with no outside pressures. We learned about their lifestyle and what morals they believe in. We were able to tour the countryside with somebody (Ben) of Amish heritage. After the tour, we were able to commune with the sheep, chickens, quail, and Misty the horse. We experienced a horse and buggy ride also. In the evening we got to see the fireflies and hear the crickets. What an awesome time! It should definitely be on your bucket list!!
Thank you for your informative review of the Amish Homestay Bed & Breakfast!
The apartment was clean, comfortable, and an amazingly restful place for our family of four. We have two infants who enjoyed playing in the apartment, exploring the farm, and enjoying fun sights near the farm. Our host was kind and quick to help us with whatever we needed but we felt very private in our apartment. We hope to return in the fall!
Thank you for this 1st review of our newest Amish farm B&B!
If you are in the Paradise PA area and looking for a place to stay, you have found your spot if you are looking for a peaceful, serene and beautiful space. The guest house has everything that you need for a respite from the craziness of life today. No Wifi or TV which was wonderful because we were there to be together and not have intrusive outside noise. They have horses and chickens, the most gorgeous flowers, and hospitality that cannot be beat. We had a loaf of fresh bread, fresh eggs, homemade yogurt, homemade granola, coffee, homemade strawberry jam and fruit provided for our breakfast and snacking pleasure as well. You cannot go wrong staying at the Dutch Homestead. Loved it!!
