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!
Our stay with Ben and his family was so much fun. His wife served us a delicious breakfast every morning, and dinner when we first arrived. They both were so nice and fun to talk with. Ben gave us a ride in his buggy and also gave us a tour of several places in the area, including a farm, quilt shop, and a road stop. Ben is retired so he has more time to spend with visitors. My daughter and I really enjoyed the stay.

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.)
