Amish Country attracts people for many reasons - scenery, crafts, quilts and furniture, to name a few. But at the heart of it all is the food. The outside world calls it "comfort food." We just call it dinner. Amish cooks have been blending simple ingredients into delicious treats for generations, and now you can enjoy them too, whether it's sharing a family-style meal reminiscent of grandma's house, or sinking your teeth into a cream-filled "whoopee pie."
The rolling hills and beautiful scenery are only half of the story of Ohio's Amish Country. Spend the night with us and you'll discover dark, starlit skies and peace and quiet you never knew existed. A wide variety of lodging experiences await you, from cabins in the country to luxury lodging just steps away from shopping and dining. Enjoy your day, but spend the night. You'll be glad you did.
