We needed to get away for a weekend. My husband just got put a 2nd shift - so we were used to seeing alot of each other for the past 13 years. Now, we were catching each other for 1/2 an hour in the evenings for supper. We stumbled across this when we googled and it's website does not do it justice! This place is what bed and breakfasts are all about. It is on a 37 acre piece of land and you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere - yet you have the conviences of the wonderful shops of Shipshewana! You are only a walk - yes, a walk, they have a trail that leads right to the Essenhouse restaurant! The rooms were more than we could ask for. What really topped it though was the wonderful couple that ran it. Debi and Dave are just THE BEST! They are warm, friendly, gracious - wonderful cooks!! This just tops them all - please take heed to this review and book a night ( we will do two nights next time) - you will not regret it!
By the way - the room we originally booked had the air go out - so they upgraded us at no charged and emailed us ahead of time to make sure that was okay!
You just feel at home and feel friendly there! They have a huge stocked pond - wonderful for fishing ( you must throw them back). We didn't take our poles but will next time - there are 4 foot grass carp in there - wonderful trails to walk or even run! Just the best! I will upload photos later, but please, you have to try this place out!
