“Simplicity at its' Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I like taking rides to the Amish Country and seeing the differences in the hospitality showed and received there versus Wyomissing, West Reading, Shillington, Sinking Spring, Exeter, Muhlenberg and Reading. Amish Country reminds me of the south very much: simple, trusting, very pleasant, kind, beautiful, taken care of and not trashed. They are grateful for what they have and they take care of it. I believe everyone should take time to learn from them and visit the area!

“Just Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The Amish Country is so beautiful and the people are so nice. We came up from DC and had a great time up here. We stayed in the Econo Lodge Hotel which has a Amish Farm right behind the hotel. It was just great to see the sunrise from the window. The Amish are nice people and ride in a horse and buggy. That's a must see. We plan to bring the grandkids in the summer.

“Good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Overall, the buggy ride was pretty good! I was a little dissapointed that the "cookie run" wasnt being offered on the day we went, but it was a Sunday so I was glad that it was even open in the first place. The ride was very relaxing and it was so nice to see the pastures. The driver, although not dressed in Amish garb, was Mennonite and gave us a lot of interesting information regarding his background. Overall, it was a great time and I would definitely do this again!
