“I’ve stayed at Hiltons, Marriotts, Embassy Suites…. I’ll take Amish Country Motel over any of them. We have been staying there almost every year since the late ‘80s. People always greet you with a smile. You feel welcome when you walk in. They make you feel like you’re family. I can’t say enough about the staff. They are always professional. And every year they are doing new improvements, so it keeps getting better.”

— Bob & Natalie Ruggiero, Bradenton, FL

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.
