This house was by far the most cleanest house. Rooms are huge and lots of sunlight. The hosts- Sadie was very friendly and so as her daughter Lydia and smiled all the time. We were 2 families with 3 small kids and we had a blast. Touring the barn and watching the cows being milked was perfect experience for the kids. Everything you see in the pictures is the way you will find.
I would definitely recommend this house and we can't wait to return to this house.
Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your Amish Farm Stay at the Killdeer Farm Guesthouse.
We were excited to return to Killdeer Farm and it was even more amazing than our first stay. The first morning we woke up in time to watch the birth of a calf and a few hours later witnessed a second birth. We were allowed to participate in the daily chores of milking, feeding and cleaning the cows, horses and mules. Which is done twice a day by the entire family. The Esh family exudes love and faith in everything they do. We consider Sylvan, Sadie, Abram and Lydia very special friends.
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your return visit to Killdeer Farm!
Never have I stayed anywhere that can compare to Killdeer Farm and it’s lovely owners. Sadie and Sylvan graciously opened their doors and treated me like family. This is the cleanest and nicest B&B I have ever been in. It is lovely and comfortable, and the peace and tranquillity one will find here is exceptional! In the four nights I was there I completely fell in love with this family. The children are so sweet and so kind and a breath of fresh air. Even their animals are kind and gentle and oh how I loved petting their little Corgie pups.
Touring the barn and watching the cows being milked was awesome! Being from a rural area in NC it wasn’t the first time I’ve seen a cow being milked but I loved listening to Slyvan and Sadie explain the lineage of their animals and the amount of milk each cow produces per day.
I had an opportunity to see Abram, Sadie and Sylvan’s son get ready for his first night going to the youth group. What an exciting time that was!! Lydia, their daughter, is a beautiful young lady and a talented quilter even at her young age. She gladly showed her mother’s quilting room and explained how she marked her material. It was fascinating from start to finish.!!
This B&B is as authentic as it gets if you are looking to learn more about the Old Order Amish. This B&B is easily a five star accommodation and I would go as high as a ten.
On a personal note the quiet time I spent there was the most wonderful quiet I have had in years. I could feel the presence of God and knew that at that moment in time I was exactly where I was supposed to be.🙂
I will be back again to visit with this amazing family.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. I'm glad you had a memorable stay!
We enjoyed our stay at the Esh Family farm - it was a great experience - just wish we had more time to converse with them - too many other things to do in Lancaster County and too little time! Us ladies enjoyed our conversations with Sadie and Lydia - dad got to hang in barn a bit during milking with Sylvan! Only thing that could have made it better was if warmer and we could sit on porch - and just take it all in!! The house was very clean and everything you needed was there!
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you may return sometime!
Guesthouse is beautiful and spotless. Each room was very spacious and beds were very comfortable. The entire family was so kind we really enjoyed spending time with them in the evening. We kept Sylvan up way past his bedtime but he was still up before the sun milking the cows. Sadie makes the most beautiful quilts and Lydia is a great quilter as well. Abram was a little more quiet but has an amazing work ethic for such a young man. We cannot wait to go back for another visit.
Glad you enjoyed the Killdeer Farm Guesthouse. Thanks for the review!
We stayed at the Killdeer Farm Guesthouse at the end of July and had the most wonderful time.
The guesthouse is huge and so lovely decorated.
Our 5 year old daughter enjoyed the playground and fell in love with the baby cows. She was even allowed to feed one with the bottle that was just born the day before.
At dawn we saw so many fireflies it was like tiny fireworks.
Thank you to Sylvan, Sadie and the children who made our stay so memorable.
Thank you for your Amish Farm Stay review!
We had an amazing stay at Killdeer Farm starting with the birth of a baby cow during our tour of the farm. The host family is very welcoming and friendly. The guesthouse is huge. I also enjoy running on the roads around the farm (there is a covered bridge a mile from the farm). We'll be back!
Glad you had such a good time - thanks for the review!
Came for last night of daughter’s family’s stay to spend time with them. The guesthouse is very spacious and well appointed for visitors’ needs. The host family is very gracious and friendly. For the 3 grandchildren there were sooo many memorable experiences. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, even on my own, and highly recommend it. Blessings to this host family.
P.S. Wish I had seen a killdeer - they are beautiful birds and great parents!
Thanks for your review. I'm glad all of you enjoyed it so much!
What a nice relaxing stay on the farm. My husband and his brother grew up on a dairy farm and were so interested in a different way of farming. Sylvan was so great to visit with regarding farming, and Sadie and the kids were so friendly and welcoming. It was so relaxing sitting on the porch in the evening air. The guest home was beautiful. Thank you for a great getaway. We’ll definitely be back!
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review of your stay at the Killdeer Farm Guesthouse!
The days we spent at this farm were wonderful! The guesthouse is very beautiful and pleasant to stay in. Also, it's in the middle of a working farm, which makes it very interesting and wonderful for children as well, with a lot of animals, and even a very cute little dog, who adores attention 😊.
Sylvan and Sadie are such great hosts, they gave us a very warm welcome and made as feel at home straight away.
It was wonderful to stay at this farm, it was an experience never to forget!
Thank you very much!
We're glad you enjoyed this newest addition to the Amish Farm Stay website!
