Nice Inn. Lobby areas are cozy with fireplaces and comfy furniture. Rooms were clean, but some of the furniture placement made it hard to get around. Pool area was clean. Meeting rooms were adequate. Nice Breakfast area and choices. We enjoyed our stay very much and already have plans to return next year. :)

Stayed here for the weekend with a large group of family members of all ages. Rooms are adequate and clean. Staff is friendly. Lots of things to do at the hotel itself--basketball, pingpong, swimming pool (with enclosed, smaller pool for toddlers). Has an adequate breakfast in the morning with a nicely-sized dining area. That all being said, it's a great... More

If you are interested in staying in the heart of Amish Country, you couldn't find a better spot than the Farmstead Inn. The hotel has a very warm, family-style environment. It is very clean. The staff are exceptionally nice. This hotel is basically right across the street from several Amish oriented businesses that sell a variety of hand made furniture... More

This past weekend, I stayed at the Farmstead Inn for a Scrapbook Weekend and was snowed in. I cannot believe the kindness of the owner and his staff. First off, he offered us a reduced rate to stay an extra night and not drive home in the blizzard. Then they allowed us to continue using the conference room without charge.... More

I have stayed here several times and the staff goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Rooms are nice and clean and the included breakfasts are always great. Went with a group and used the conference areas. They were well set up. Staff was available to add or change anything we needed.

For the past 3 yrs we have stayed at the Farmstead for 3 day scrapbook events! We have a wonderful time! This year we got snowed in and were offered a more than generous rate to stay an unplanned extra day. Then toward the evening as we were learning that all the restaurants were closed due to weather, a very... More

I went there for a convention, January 2015, the room was the cleanest I'd ever stayed in. Employees are very kind and the breakfast was really good. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. We were snowed in on Sunday and they offered a discounted rate for us to stay until the storm passed. I'd stay there... More

Stayed here for a weekend crop. It snowed a ton over the weekend and they gave those who wanted to stay an extra night a discounted room rate and free extended use of the conference room where we were all crafting. And being in Amish country the area restaurants were closed as it was Sunday. When the owner heard some... More

This is the fourth year I've held our three day scrapbooking retreats at the Farmstead. Each time we are well cared for by the hotel staff (especially Elaine). Rooms are clean, breakfast is good and the staff bend over backwards to make sure we're happy. This past weekend was the best. We were snowed in and the hotel offered us... More
