    [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.

“We come once a year and stay at the Village Inn & Suites for six or seven days, planning around July 4, because we like to go to the big Amish auction. We bought a little table hutch there one time, and my wife’s bought some handmade towels. We enjoy participating in the auction and we enjoy the food. We stay all day. We like just driving back in the country, and we have some antique stores we like to visit. I’m a milk bottle collector, and I actually found one of my best milk bottles at a yard sale here. We always find something that we haven’t seen before.”

— Terry White, Morristown, TN

Experience Old-World Hospitality

Shed the stresses of today’s world and step back in time. Our 18th Century Inn is listed in both the Lancaster County Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. What used to be an 11-room Lancaster County bed and breakfast built in 1852 has been expanded to a 24-room Amish Country inn. Each of the meticulously-decorated rooms and suites are tastefully decorated with period furnishings and modern amenities, and are located in four carefully-preserved historic buildings in the quaint village of Bird-in-Hand, PA. They provide the perfect retreat for relaxation in comfort and privacy, while putting you within walking distance of our popular Restaurant & Smorgasbord and our Bakery & Cafe, as well as a local farmer’s market, antique gallery, old-fashioned country store, hot air balloon rides and more. Treat yourself to our wine-tasting package or, for an authentic Lancaster County experience, ask about our Farm-to-Fork and Harvest tours. And our innkeeper is always glad to make suggestions to help you get the most from your stay.

 

Welcome From Our Innkeepers

Guests often gather on the sun porch for relaxed reading and conversation while overlooking the rolling farmland. Opposite the original Inn, across Old Philadelphia Pike, are three 19th-century buildings that were restored and renovated in 2003. Featuring three suites, the Desmond House combines Victorian charm with 21st-century comfort and conveniences. The Ressler House offers six rooms and suites and a breakfast room where our Guests can enjoy a deluxe continental breakfast and evening snacks. Behind them, adjacent to Amish farmlands, the Carriage House offers four two-room suites with kitchenettes, making it your perfect choice for an extended stay.

Because we have just 24 rooms and suites, we can offer a level of service and attention to detail that you will rarely find anywhere else. Whether you are planning a weekend getaway or a longer stay, celebrating an anniversary, organizing a girlfriends’ retreat or simply looking for a romantic bed and breakfast near Lancaster, PA, we can help you select the ideal room or suite for your visit to Amish Country.

A Great Place For Gatherings

If you’re hosting a business meeting or a baby or bridal shower, we have the perfect place for group gatherings. The conference and meeting space in our Desmond House can accommodate up to 35 people theatre style, with a variety of other seating and set-up options available. Our accessible space offers convenient parking and a self-contained, first-floor location with adjoining restroom facilities. We offer attractive rental rates, and our meeting room is available free when you book 10 rooms or more.
