Here's a chance to learn more about the Amish way of life. You get a 20 minute tour of an Amish home and can ask questions. Afterwards take a leisurely walk on the grounds. Not good for more than about hour and two. A good short break. Best to go early in the day!

We didn't take the tours provided at the Amish village but went for a buggy ride with a local tour provider called Ed's buggy. The ride, I felt was a little over priced ($16 per person for an hr ride) but all in all it was a good experience!

My wife and I went to visit the Amish village. The tour lasted around 15 minutes and was almost 10 dollars each. The guide was a young girl probably doing this on her vacation. Although she tried one could tell that it was not her profession. After that we were allowed to look at several things which were interesting :... More

Our visit to this village was informative, really a treasure. Our guide grew up Amish but became Mennonite, and spoke with authority, experience, and appreciation. She took us through the house, explained how some "electric" machines can be used with gas, how the family life is, and then let us go to the village. I speak German, so the school... More

Great little place to see what a typical Amish home would be like. Can't get over gas lighting and refridgeration. The school house reminded me om earlier years in school except for the gas lights and wood stove.

Great little gift shops and the tour of the Amish house and their way of life was very informative. We didn't take the tour bus, but took a buggy ride later in our trip. I would recommend the actual buggy rides!

The actual village was pretty cool, but we took one of their tour buses into the Amish country side, and I had to elbow my husband to keep him awake. My father actually woke himself up snoring!! To say the least, It wasn't what I expected, and we wasted $20 and 2 hours of our vacation time...
