    [post_content] => A small Pennsylvania town is shaken when Zack Fisher, the infant son of a prominent Amish family, is kidnapped. Accusations fly. Although everyone comes under suspicion, the case goes cold. Zack’s sister Naomi, who was supposed to be watching him, blames herself for the next 20 years – then takes matters into her own hands. Packed with a cast of interesting and complex characters, including a quirky, noir-style detective and an amateur Amish sleuth, this musical mystery tells a moving story about learning to forgive yourself.

Presented in partnership with Blue Gate Musicals, with a script by Martha Bolton based on Wanda Brunstetter’s best-selling Daughters of Lancaster County series, this light-hearted whodunit is brought to life by a talented cast of professionals. Chosen from 5,000 hopefuls at auditions across the country, our cast members have appeared at Sight & Sound Theatres, Ozark Actors Theatre, Peach State Summer Theatre, Lexington Children’s Theatre, South Bend Civic Theatre and other venues. This production includes several veterans of the Bird-in-Hand Stage.

If faith, family and self-forgiveness matter to you, Stolen will steal your heart.

“I visit three times a year and try to stay about five days. When I’m not staying with Amish friends, I stay at Amish Country Motel. I eat breakfast on Sunday mornings at the Restaurant buffet. I love the banana bread and the coffee is the best I ever tasted. I go to the theaters, shop at the outlets and the flea markets. Sometimes I go sit out front and just enjoy being here. It was snowing last year when we got there, and it was so pretty. ”

Experience Life’s Simple Pleasures in Amish Country, PA

A sparkling clean room. A comfortable bed. A location that gives you easy access to everything you want to see and do in Lancaster’s Amish Country. What more could you want? Did we mention exceptional value? You’ll find all that and more at Amish Country Motel. No wonder so many of our Guests often stay an extra day or two – and return year after year.

Midway between the picturesque villages of Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse, our Bird-in-Hand motel is surrounded by rolling Lancaster County farmlands, one-room schoolhouses, horse-drawn buggies and small farms powered by windmills. Our convenient motel location puts you just minutes from farmers’ markets, antique shops, museums, outlet malls, theatres and Pennsylvania Dutch buffet (smorgasbord) restaurants. We’re just minutes from Kitchen Kettle Village, Sight & Sound Theatres, Dutch Wonderland, Strasburg Railroad and the outlets. Stop at roadside stands for fresh produce or homemade root beer and lemonade. Spend your days exploring or grab a lounge chair and relax by the pool while enjoying a postcard-perfect view of the scenic surrounding farmlands. A Lancaster County vacation doesn’t get any more authentic than this. For more insight into this rural way of life, take a free two-hour tour of Amish farmlands that we exclusively offer to our Guests. As our Guest, you also have access to all of the recreational amenities at the nearby Bird-in-Hand Family Inn (including two indoor pools and another outdoor pool).

Experience Smucker family hospitality. For even greater value, ask about seasonal specials and our VIP program when you make your reservation at Amish Country Motel.
