Perfect get away for a dose of Christmas cheers & relaxation. We enjoyed the various local shops at Kitchen Kettle & found some gifts for friends & family. We had a lovely lunch by the fire at Kling restaurant then headed to Country Heart B & B where we were welcomed by our hosts Bonnie & David. The inn is a well preserved piece of Lancaster county history. We settled in our beautiful room which featured a jacuzzi, Amish quit and antique furniture. We then joined our friends for wine in the living room by the Christmas tree. Our host David gave us insights into the home history & local history as well. David is a history buff especially Lancaster County & WWII. We had arranged with Bonnie at the time of booking for dinner at an Amish home. The experience was truly memorable. We were welcomed into the home of an Amish family where we enjoyed a home cook feast and a fun time with the whole family. We returned to the Country Heart for a night cap then a restful sleep to sounds of logs crackling in the heart of our bedroom fireplace . Next morning, Bonnie treated us to a delicious breakfast featuring some of her Amish recipes. We came back rejuvenated & with wonderful memories. Definitely, will go back .
