“Wonderful place to relax and unwind”
Reviewed January 7, 2010

We stayed at Graystone Cottages, Lofty Places, for two days between visiting relatives in Cleveland and Columbus, and it was just what we needed. The cottage was light and airy, decorated nicely, comfy beds, three flat screen TVs, a jazzuzi, a fireplace, free internet hookup, and a great location in the town of Berlin where we could walk to the local restaurant where the "locals eat". Lofty Places was super clean and well maintained. Milk, juice, bagels,coffee, hot chocolate, granola and cinnamon rolls were provided for breakfast. The town of Berlin itself is very commercialized but we still enjoyed walking around the town. Lofty Places is the largest cottage and the only one actually facing the road. In wamer weather the rocking chairs on the porch would provide a great view of all the buggies going by. There is also a neat little cheese, grocery and bulk foods store right next door to the cottage where the locals shop. There was usually a buggy or two tied up next to our cottage with the owners shopping in the store. If you want a clean, delightful place to stay while visitng the Ohio Amish, skip the motels and stay at Graystone Cottages. I recommend Graystone Cottages 100%.

Okay, so although I'm not as intrigued with the Amish as others, this is now my second time at Graystone! The first time I was spending a gift certificate that I received. The second trip I made was because they won me over completely!

It was a short trip for me (2 hours), easy to get to and in the middle of this darling community of Berlin. Everything about the cottage is just so comfortable, but with every ammenity you would want. Their website is easy to navigate, reservations simple, and love the idea of a code to enter your room.

Graystone Cottages are a delight, and I would refer them to anyone - wonderful pricing, too. Thank you for everything!

This year, experiencing the fall colors that flood the rolling hills of Ohio's Holmes County got easier and even more rewarding, thanks to this relatively new group of cottages. Located in the heart of Amish Country in downtown Berlin, each of these spaces is like a miniature home away from home, with a kitchenette, TVs, full bath and even a separate candlelit Jacuzzi. And you can sit on a covered front porch or walk a block to Main Street with all its unique shops and Amish food stores.

Our first morning, we opened the blinds by our breakfast table to see a horse looking back at us just ten feet away, tethered to a hitching post and pulling a buggy. She was joined by three other horse-and-buggy combos soon after, as their owners left to shop in nearby bulk food stores. Quite an experience.

We signed up for a steak-potatoes-veggies dinner one evening, and I grilled two prepared rib-eyes on an electric grill on the front porch. Although the marinate was too salty for our tastes, the overall dining experience was a comfortable combination of "homey" and "get-away," all in one... which kind of sums up our stay in this cottage as well.

You can find more affordable October accommodations in colorful Amish country. But if you want a separate home base conveniently located near the shops, museums, forests and people of Holmes County, these Graystone Cottages are a perfect choice. For sure, we'll be staying there again sometime soon.

We stayed in the Lofty Places Cottage which was right on the street, it was perfect! All the shopping in Berlin, Ohio was just a door down to the main street which was jam packed with beautiful quaint shops of all kinds, all within walking distance!! This was great so our family could split up and go to different shops if needed and could meet back at the cottage at anytime, and we didn't have to fight to find a parking spot. No shops are open on Sundays and the majority close at 5:00 p.m. every evening, but it didn't put a damper on our adventure...check out is at 11:00 a.m. which allowed us time to sleep in or go to Church, which was right on the corner, then explore the breath-taking adjacent towns and countryside. Although we were right on the street, the cottage was extremely quiet and peaceful. Woke to the Amish horse and buggies on Sunday morning going to Church, but it was a pleasant sound, not loud, just could faintly hear them enough to know what it was and it bring a smile to your face. The cottage was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated with a gas fire place for warmth as well as ambiance! Did I mention that the cinnamon rolls were awesome! Will I stay at Graystone Cottages again? Most definitely!! I'm already looking forward to it!

We really enjoyed our getaway. The cottage is centrally located to all the shopping. If you enjoy hiking the mohican state park is not far away and had some good easy trails. Be sure to eat at the numerous amish restaurants, check out the local wineries and chocolate shop. The cottage was clean, cozy and comfortable. We will return and recommend to friends who are looking for a simple time away.
