My 14 year old daughter and I booked 2 nights at an Amish Bed and Breakfast (Ben and Emma's home) at the end of a week-long road trip from DC to Niagara Falls. The idea of two days totally off the grid, without electricity (and social media!) sounded unappealing to my daughter at first, but as soon as we met Ben and Emma, I knew we were in good hands and that we wouldn't miss our phones! Emma prepared a lovely meal for us on our first night. I had told her we were vegetarian, but that we could just eat the side dishes and not to worry, but Emma made a delicous and entirely vegetarian meal for us, including slaw, mashed potatoes, pickled beats, green beans, homemade bread and jam, and delicious peaches and chocolate zucchini bread with ice cream for dessert. It was the best meal of our weeklong trip! They don't normally serve dinner to guests, but since we were arriving on a Saturday evening and Sunday was church day and they wouldn't be serving us breakfast that morning, they wanted to make up for it with a full meal. Anyway, we explored the area on Sunday while they were at church (all day), but we enjoyed a delicious full breakfast on Monday morning--eggs, fruit, bread, and more! Then Ben took us on a buggy ride, after which we drove (in our car) to a couple of Amish farms and shops that we would never have found on our own. We both learned so much about the Amish during our short two day stay. Ben and Emma shared stories about their life together, their religion and customs, their children as well as their family history. Ben especially loves to talk about the Amish way of life--education, food, farminig practices, traditions, and more. We observed a traditional silent grace at the beginning and end of each meal. We asked questions about weddings (the bride doesn't wear white!), education (everyone goes to school through 8th grade only), and differences between the Amish and their Mennonite friends (Mennonites use tractors for farming; Amish use horses). Oh, and we learned that we are referred to as "English" which we found to be quite amusing. Although they don't use electricity, they do have battery and solar-operated lights. We are definitely planning to go back!
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful & detailed review. I'm sure it will be very helpful to prospective future guests! (You may find information & photos of this lodging on our sister AmishBnB.com website.)
My family thoroughly enjoyed the farm. It was super serene as it is not a working farm. The hosts spent lots of time chatting with us; which was our favorite part of the stay. We got to feed the horse and had free run of the whole property. My kids really enjoyed the bikes and the games that were available. The views and the scents were spectacular! We will definitely be returning someday.
Thank you for your review. I agree that Dave & Lena, and the Pleasant View Farm Guesthouse are wonderful!
This place deserves more than 5 stars! The Fisher family were all so nice and we throughly enjoyed our stay! The apartment had everything we could’ve needed. Mary even left us homemade bread and jam which was amazing. We will definitely be staying here again!
We're glad you enjoyed your stay at the Dutch Homestead Guesthouse!
We had a lovely time at the Lapp Family Amish Guesthouse. Our spacious house was welcoming along with the kind hosts. We enjoyed sharing conversation and desserts one evening around their firepit. Our children loved the provided toys and crib while we relished the beautiful views and generous hospitality. Our hosts, John and Linda, eagerly answered all our questions. Our family made many wonderful memories. Thanks so much!

My husband and I stayed here for a 2 night anniversary trip. The house was exceptionally clean and John was a fantastic host. The views are amazing and the house is conveniently located near everything we wanted to do. The basket of goodies on the table was a nice surprise. We can't wait to come back next year and plan to book this same house. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
Thank you for your review of the Lapp Family Amish Guesthouse!
To add to the review I just submitted for Country Road Flowers Guesthouse, I wanted to give a shout out to Dave for his coordination of our accommodations - both the lodging and the evening meal. We ate at a different location, Beacon Hollow, which was a very short and pleasant walk from our lodging. Our dinner was great fun! Loved the hospitality (Mary was very gracious), chatting with the other guests (from England, India, Germany, CA and then us), and the food kept coming and coming and coming - deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelicious! There wasn't anything we would change at all. We are excited to return for another Lancaster area visit!
Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. I'm glad your Amish experience in Lancaster County PA was so much to your liking!
We absolutely loved the location of the Country Roads Flowers Guesthouse and Beacon Hollow Farm (dinner). In fact, after our dinner, we walked back to our lodging.
The Guesthouse was very homey with plenty of space to spread out. Mary was quite accommodating and patient with all my questions. And her Shoo-Fly Muffins were a pleasant surprise and yummy!
There wasn't anything we would change at all. We can't wait to come back! Thanks again.
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very comfortable, all modern amenities available. It was sparkly clean.
John had made sure the air conditioners were running and the house was very cool when we arrived.
We enjoyed the views and the peaceful setting.
John was an incredibly generous host. I had brought my Australian parents and he showed us all around, introduced us to his horses, shared some ice cream with us, and made us feel very welcome and at ease.
John's mother also stepped out to meet us. We were enchanted.
Thank you for your review of the Lapp Family Amish Guesthouse. I'm glad you had such a nice experience!
We had a most enjoyable stay at Pleasant View. Lovely hosts Dave and Lena. Beautiful farm. Clean and well-equipped accommodation. Most reasonable fee.
Thank you for posting this review of your stay at the Pleasant View Farm Guesthouse. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
There's a bit too much to put in this review page but suffice it to say that our stay at Daniel and Ruth-Ann's guesthouse was a highlight of the trip for our family.
We loved the tranquil location and the house fit our family (of 8) quite well - we could really use a kitchen that size in our house!
The kids had fun gathering eggs from the chicken house with the girls, I (dad) had a great time talking farm operations with Daniel (who has a really well thought out operation running) while my wife had some really good time with Ruth Ann talking family etc.
We cannot recommend staying at the Stoltzfus' enough - I anticipate it wont be the last time that we do : )
Thank you for taking the time to post this review of the Amishtown Farm Guesthouse. I'm glad you had such a good time with your family!
