My family and I love this place! We always stop by every time we venture up to Lancaster. The best homemade root beer ever! They carry a little bit of everything! From quilts to crafts to jarred foods and bake goods. You won't be disappointed here! Also, you can feed the animal out back behind the shop. Very well kept... More

We stopped there with 100 people in two buses. All bought something. There homemade pies and candies are wonderful. Many types of arts and crafts, also. Home made ice cream and pretzels were a hit with all ages. we go there every time we visit.

There's something for everyone. Lots of quilllos to choose from. Not as many quilts as elsewhere (Riehls and Log Cabin had the most) but many quilted objects. Delicious baked goods too. Frosted raisin bread is yummy. Great birdhouse and woodcraft selection.

Nice, but small area to move around inside. Many word working items-bird houses, stands, etc. homemade sewn items, and baked goods inside. If you want a delicious warm pretzel, must stand in line outside. Busy place as were there with 2busses...

The shop has a great variety and good prices on homemade soap. I always try to stock up whenever I visit. The baked goods are also delicious esp. the molasses cookies! There is also a large variety of crafts.

This was off the main drag, so we thought it would be small.... We were wrong....it even had a parking lot. Their claim to fame is that there were two Amish girls making soft pretzels. We got one to share and didn't start eating it until we drove away.....we should have EACH gotten one! They were so delicious! We also... More

My husband and I were driving on back roads throughout Lancaster county looking for quaint, off-the-beaten-path places, and stumbled across this roadside stand. A sign outside says "Buses Welcome." That was an immediate turn-off. What turned us off even more than the tourist trap environment was the attitude of the owner. He was cold and indifferent. We have been to... More

This shop was a bit out of the way but well worth the drive. We purchased more items here then any of the other shops we visited. The pretzels were great.

Referred here by Amish buggy driver. Off the main roads, worth the drive. Truly Amish goods and employees, except for a few items made in China or elsewhere. Not sure why they'd offer them. But they do have authentic delicious fresh hot pretzels!
