Amish & Mennonite Culture

Many visitors to Lancaster County come here because it's "Amish Country" (or Pennsylvania Dutch Country). With many Amish and Mennonite families in our community, it's inevitable that you'll come across a few during your stay. You'll see (and hear!) their carriages and buggies pass by the bed and breakfast. You'll shop beside an Amish family at a thrift store or quilt shop. Maybe you'll visit the New Holland Sales Stables (just a 10 minute walk away at 101 West Fulton Street) and watch local farmers buy and sell livestock.

But if you're looking for a dedicated experience, there are several options all within a short drive and mostly centered around the town of Intercourse, PA (10 minutes south).
