Killdeer Guesthouse is an amazing vacation for the entire family! We absolutely loved experiencing Amish life. We have 2 boys and they really enjoyed the farm. We woke-up early to watch the milking of the cows. Our city boys got to see another way of life. We loved not having a television! We had family time playing cards and games at night. The house is large and has plenty of room. We went in August and didn't need air conditioning at all. Open windows made for a great sleep! The restaurants in town are soooo good! You can't go wrong with any of them. We went out for every meal and ate very well! We took an Amish house tour and later sat with the Esh family at night and talked about all the things we were told that were wrong on the tour!! HA. The Eshs are very friendly and really make you feel at home. They are open to sharing their way of life and happy to show you the farm. Our boys loved running around with the dogs too! We can't wait to come back and visit again.
Thank you for your review!
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!!

My wife and I were looking to take our three year old daughter to Amish Country. We were hoping for a unique Amish experience. Luckily I came across this site. Dave the owner responded to my calls and e-mails right away. There were so many great options to choose from! He was able to find us an amazing farm that offered everything we wanted - beautiful scenery, interaction with farm animals, a warm caring family to stay with and a delicious home cooked breakfast. We thought it was a wonderful value. The service and hospitality from beginning to end was outstanding. We'll definitely go through this site again the next time we plan an Amish getaway!
We had a wonder stay at the Killdeer Farm with the Esh Family. The hospitality was beyond what we expected. The 3 level guesthouse was nicely renovated with plenty of rooms that provided hot water for showers, electricity, gas stove, refrigerator and plenty more. We felt completely safe the entire time we were there. We will definitely book with the Killdeer Farm's Esh Family again. Can't wait to visit them again. Thank you.
We had a wonderful time at the Killdeer farm. The house and farm far exceeded our expectations. The house was beautiful, newly renovated very spacious and very clean. We had more than enough room for our family of nine.
The Esh family was very warm and welcoming and my kids had a great time holding the puppies and feeding a calf a bottle.
This was definitely on our list of all time great experiences and we can't wait to do it again!
I'm glad you had such a good time at the Killdeer Farm Guesthouse!
