Touring Pennsylvania Dutch Country
Amish towns in the central Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania’s Amish communities provide a glimpse of a simpler time. Driving from town to town is easy, and ideal in the fall when leaf peeping is at its peak.
King's Cottage B&B Inn
The Majestic Chambre has inlaid-wood furniture and a double whirlpool bath, which can be drawn for you and floated with rose petals while you’re at dinner. All rooms are equipped with fireplaces, and, on a practical note, come with free WiFi.
Aaron and Jessica's Amish Buggy Rides
Run by people of Mennonite and Amish descent, the tour takes you through the covered bridges of the Dutch German countryside to visit noncommercial working farms.
The Olde Greenfield Inn
Nuzzle in secret at one of only two tables in the wine cellar of this 1780 farmhouse, and choose from rustic dishes like the lamb rack Dijonaise and papardelle tossed with asparagus, wild mushrooms, and basil.
Kids can try their hands at a pint-size machine-shop assembly line, or play in a make-believe grocery store.
Bird-in-Hand Farmers Market
Snack on homemade shoofly pie while shopping for souvenirs such as scented candles and old-fashioned candies.
If you have a big group (10 or more), join an Amish family, the Fishers, at their farm for a family-style dinner of chicken, mashed potatoes, and homemade ice cream.
Leaman's Country Lodging
Wake up to a vista of cornfields and gardens after a night at this family owned, five-bedroom inn on a 200-year-old farm.
