The Lapp- family gave us a warm welcome in the form of a homemade bread, bacon and eggs. The bread was enough for 1 breakfast, the bacon and eggs lasted for our 3 breakfasts that we had.
The house is large. The beds are a bit squeaky and with some we wondered how long they would hold but it's all part of the experience. We weren't expecting something fancy.
Although the air conditioning was wonderful.
The Lapp children took us for a buggy ride, gave us a tour around the farm and gave us a great tip for a family restaurant to go eat.
As they were building a barn there was lots of noise, starting at 6am, which means we missed out on the pace and quiet part of the experience.
But overall we would highly recommend.
Hartelijk dank voor jullie recensie. Wij zijn blij dat jullie hebben genoten!
OMG! The experience was so surreal, the kind of peace and tranquillity, I experience was next to none.
The host was beyond polite, the facility was was pristine, the welcome, the tours, the town, oh I swear I’m going back.
Thanks guys for this Amish experience, I will never ever forget y’all.
Love and blessings.
We only stayed one night at this great place - just passing through - but we very much appreciated the size of the house and the autonomy we were given there. Good communication and no-hassle check-in. There were condiments, coffee, and creamer waiting and so much space to spread out after a long flight from the West Coast. I lived in Lancaster for 5 years back in the 1980's (one of those years on an Amish farm), and it was so nice to have a sweet, if short, trip back down Memory Lane. Thanks, CRFGH!
Thank you for your review. We hope you can return for another stay!
There was no power except for one outlet that was inside of a cabinet. When we stayed we were only there for 2 hours before the one outlet went out and we had no power at all. The only light source we had was battery powered lanterns and those also stopped working as well.
Thank you for your review. This is a good reminder for guests to click on the "Details" tab on our booking page in order to read the description of each lodging before making a reservation. If you had done so, you would have read that this lodging has "only one electrical outlet & battery operated lights". I'm sorry you had trouble using the outlet & operating the lamps. Elam or I could have helped you if you had tried to contact either of us.
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.
