We were at the village during off season and I am unable to rate everything at the village. We did go to the restaurant and winery and the food was excellent. The woman working there was Dutch and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

We came in the "off-season" so they are only open on the weekends and have limited hours. While we were there there were maybe another 15 people and while the village was beautiful, the high school kids that work throughout the park seemed to be phoning it in. When you enter you are given a list of things to do... More

We visited on a cold Saturday morning. It wasn't very busy. Most of the staff is extremely friendly. The candle making is remarkable. There is a carousel, swings, a big slide and ferris wheel included with admission. They do a Dutch dance every couple hours and they teach you to do it. You get free popcorn from the dance area...

Our husbands did not want to pay the $10 entry fee but we went and had a nice time. Kind of cute with information about the area I didn't know about. Glad we went.

It doesn't look big but we found there is lot to see and to do there. Kids have enough games and rides to enjoy, the wood shoe dance was enjoyed by everyone. One surprisingly nice attraction is the hand carved candle shop, the candles have multiple colored layers, then hand carved and twisted to make beautiful shapes. Make sure you... More

My husband, two year old daughter, and I visited on a rainy day. It didn't dampen her spirits. She had a raincoat and boots and had a blast. Petted animals, rode the carousal, ran in puddles and danced with the Dutch dancers. Everyone was very nice!

I didnt expect that I will enjoy this attraction. My wife just found out about this in a tour website and we check this out when we went in a midwest road trip. The entrance fee is very reasonable and this includes the unlimited ride to their carousel and swing ride. Children may even pet and feed farm animals like... More

We had a wonderful visit to the Dutch Village with our three school age kids. There was enough to see and do for almost three hours without doing anything twice! (And we did do some stuff twice at the end because the kids enjoyed it so much!) We watched a Dutch tradition dance and got to participate in learning the... More

We have passed by Dutch Village for a number of years, but thought while our kids and grandchild were in town, we'd make it one of our day trips. We were so glad we did. You get a small sampling of a number of Dutch traditions with a few small village fair experiences thrown in. Grandson was not overwhelmed by... More
