Not much left after storm
Oct 2020
I rated 3 stars because there is nothing there only a few shops and two restaurants. According to the information posted, the village has not recovered from the storm. However, if you are in the area visiting the Castleman River Bridge State Park, just walk across the bridge to the village to see nice structures and/or to enjoy yourself at the two restaurants.

This lovely little village offers a glimpse into history as the artisans practice their crafts in the way of our forefathers. And, best yet, it's free! If you are looking for unique gifts from the area, this is the place to shop!

A Hidden Gem in the Trees
Oct 2019
We drove by and happened to see a hint of older shops back in the trees so we turned around and stopped. Amongst a small forest are little, rustic cabins and artisan shops. The shops held their own artist including: color pencil artest, metal worker, wooden creations. Outside the woods are a couple additional special shops of foods and crafts. Also is a 3 story older early Amercian home featuring the history of the Yoder Family and early American house and farm furnishings.

A brief walk back in time amidst a spruce forest!
Sep 2019
We enjoy walking thru the spruce forest and admiring all the craftmanship in the small cabins. Definitely worth a visit!! And nearby is a grist mill. I make a point of buying whole wheat flour when there.

A Must See
Aug 2019
Traditional mountain crafts. The bird carver does intricate work. For example, he carves each vane on each feather. His work is exemplary. I wish I could afford to buy one, and wish I had an appropriate place to display it properly. Other artisans do iron work and quilts.

Very interesting artisans

Loved visiting Spruce Forest. The artisans are varied and interesting. Spent a long time talking to two of them and admiring their work. The little craft cottages are adorable. Enjoyed seeing the Yoder house. Someplace we love to take guests.

Nice place to stop and look around.
Aug 2019 • Family
Unfortunately, I arrived early in the day and a few of the artisan shops were not open yet. However, the ones that were open were populated with friendly and talented folks who were happy to chat about their arts and the history of the place. The flour mill was quite interesting, and the very short trek up the historic bridge yielded a pretty view. If you are in the area, go ahead and give it a look.

Cute Village for a quick stop.
Jul 2019 • Family
We stopped here with out ten and seven year olds bought them some ice cream and walked around the cute little village shops. Easy walking paths and you can go up on the bridge for some pictures. Worth the stop if your looking for a quick break out of the car.
