The pond and gardens add a special serenity to our Amish Farmland Views.

Spring Has Sprung

As many of you have received our April 2nd email, you will note the similarity in theme going on here at the Inn! This sign was a big surprise gift to us from our young 11 year old Amish helper.  He likes working outdoors and is helping us get our gardens ready  for planting.  We planted this sign and some pansies yesterday.  Our next venture is to empty out and clean the pond!  (Arlen is excited!)  Enjoyed my kitchen prep this weekend while chatting with Mary R.   Thanks, Mary, for making my work go quickly!

An extra special Easter

Posted on: April 7, 2015 at 2:09 pm, in

We spent a delightful Easter with our guests. Easter Egg dying took on new meaning this year!   We received seven dozen new “spring chick” brown eggs and needed to think “Outside the Box.” Grand daughter Julia and Mom Mom Chris searched and searched and found Gold Aztec style tattoos; don’t you think they could be on “Pinterest”?  Dinner at Lily’s on Main shared with Maureen and John was extra special as we were able sit with our guests and eat a meal  that someone else prepared! Thanks Steve eggsand company at Lily’s.  And thanks Julia and Andrew for helping with Easter Breakfast!
