“Fun Murder Mystery & Wonderful Room”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Lisa and I stayed at the Garden gate Get-A-Way B&B the weekend afetr Valentines, and signed up for their Murder Mystery package. We stayed in the Garden Suite Room, and really enjoyed the accomodations. The room includes both a gas fireplace and a jacuzzi, and over the course of the weekend, we used both quite a few times. It was also nice in that it had a private entrance, and was not attached to the common room. Just for that extra dab of romance that we were looking for.

The murder mystery was quite fun, and we enjoyed dressing up and playing our parts. Unfortunately, some of the other "cast" monopolized some of the time, and were somewhat annoying, but that was not the fault of the hostess. The dinner that went along with the murder mystery was fair, but nothing special.

However, both Lisa and I enjoyed both of the breakfasts that we ate there. The B&B has a small buffet-style breakfast, and the entrees and muffins/coffee cae provided were just right for both of us. There was also granola and fresh fruit, and the fruit was excellent. lisa and I sat with the B&B owner and her mother both days, and really enjoyed the conversations about both her experiences running the B&B, and also comparing all of our various travel experiences.

They also have two indivividual cottages that they rent, and Lisa and I were so happy with our stay there that we are hoping to plan a return with another couple during the warmer weather, and try out those cabins (and their jacuzzi tubs!). And maybe this time also get to enjoy their nightly outdoor campfires.

Room Tip: I believe the only rooms with jacuzzis are the Garden Suite and the two cottages. I think theB&B...

We're glad that your experience was good enough to want to return.

I would like to comment about the dinner menu for the murder mystery just in case anyone reading this. We serve one menu for everyone and unfortunately some people don't care for our choices. This particular dinner menu included:
Wine & Port Wine Cheese Spread on crackers as a welcome
Mediterranean Pinwheel Appetizer with crescent rolls, salami, feta, fresh basil
Dinner Salad with mixed greens, red onion, dried cranberries and mandarin oranges with a poppyseed dressing
Entree included Baked Breaded Chicken with a vegetable medley that included baked seasoned sweet potatoes and zucchini, along with "Red Lobster" garlic cheddar bisquits
Dessert was wedding cake
Each murder mystery has a different menu and we try to choose foods that go with the theme of the mystery

My husband booked the Falls Kiss cottage as a surprise weekend getaway, and I was pleasantly surprised! It is located on the corner of Amish country back roads, with rolling fields behind it. We saw multiple horse buggies on the road, and beautiful horses grazing during the day providing a very serene view from the back porch. The accommodations were exquisitely well thought out. The fireplace creates the ambience of romance in every direction. We had no trouble snuggling on the couch with a glass of wine, and each others company. Each detail set the mood for comfort and romance including luxurious bedding, delicious chocolates, yummy homemade baked goods, soft bath robes, and the tub. The jacuzzi tub was by far my favorite of all the amenities. I felt like a Roman goddess! The service was wonderful. Breakfast was delivered to us unless we wanted to join the main house. Tons of visitor information was provided, and Carol was available at any moment for us. It was just what we needed to get unplugged, and enjoy time together.

We are so thrilled that your romantic getaway was perfect for you. We would like to clarify the breakfast options for future guests:
Breakfast in the main house is not an option since it is a separate business. For guests that want to get on the road early we can provide a homemade Continental Breakfast in the cottage. For guests who can wait until about 9:45-11 a.m. we can provide a full hot breakfast delivered to your cottage...you pick the time.
We hope that others looking for a romantic getaway filled with pampering will call us!

What an incredible trip we had to the beautiful Amish countryside during Thanksgiving week 2011! Blown away by the rolling hills, Amish farms, and easy access to nearby attractions. We stayed in the Garden Gate Suite/room, which is quite possibly the finest room in a B&B we've yet seen, anywhere. Carol & Herb were extremely gracious and accommodating, with impeccable service. Another highlight was they may have the ONLY guided tour in the area with its own BUS! The bus even gives each rider their own cubby to store your new Amish purchases or gear. Loved the tours of the winery, cheese & chocolate factories, as well as the Warther Museum (most amazing wood carvings). Back at the Garden Gate, it was so nice to simply be near an Amish farm, with neighbors walking & buggy'ing, going about their day. This B&B has all you need and more to experience another world that you won't soon forget. Cheers!

Room Tip: We got a tour of all the rooms, which were equally inviting and tastefull, but we stayed in the Gard...

I have purchased several Living Social vouchers and they each provide something a little extra. Well, let me tell you, Herb & Carol don't provide a little extra - they go the extra mile! We had a POUND of chocolates, and a dozen ROSES, as well as sparkling cider and a cheese & cracker tray waiting when we arrived. Did we feel special or what!

We had a double jacuzzi in our room (The Garden Gate Suite) as well as a fireplace (although to tell you the truth it was too warm to use - oh well, next time!). They think of everything, from the jacuzzi friendly "oil" and fireman friendly candles (read battery operated but with plenty of ambience) to the cookies waiting after a day of sightseeing.

Breakfast was served buffet style and I don't usually care for that but this one was so good I asked for the recipe to one of the dishes and plan to serve it Christmas morning! Herb and Carol sat and talked with the guests during breakfast and it was such a pleasure - they are extremely knowledgable about the area and can answer any question thrown their way.

They also have several different package deals - our next trip will take advantage of the one for wineries!

Room Tip: If you stay in the Garden Gate Suite find & sign the dollar bill. :-)

We had a fantastic weekend in Amish country. The hosts were outstanding and really took care of us. The shuttle bus (yep, I said shuttle bus!) tour took us everywhere we'd want to go and was narrated with great information.

We'd highly recommend this B&B to family and friends!

This beautiful bed & breakfast in the heart of Ohio's Amish country is a must stay! Off the beaten path, yet close to shopping and many wonderful Amish style restaurants.
Each room has it's own theme.
You will really enjoy the evening social hour around the traditional nightly "campfire". It was great fun to get to know guests from other parts of the country. Inn Keepers Herb & Carol kept the conversation lively. They know every road and buggy trail there is in Millersburg and surrounding area. They really are experts on the area and local culture.
You will love this place!

Let's face it, they roll up the streets at 5pm in Holmes County. So, when you stay at the Garden Gate, sit back and relax at the campfire with Carol and Herb and the other guests and talk about your day and make some smores. I had a chocolate chip cookie smore. Yum. This is our second stay at Garden Gate and they are very welcoming. Carol makes a very delicous breakfast and makes you feel right at home. The hosts are very knowledgeable about the Amish and the area and will help you find the best treasures of Holmes County. The rooms are on the small side but, very well decorated and extremely clean. We stayed in the Rose Garden Room, very comfortable king size bed, nice tv and fireplace. They provide nice soaps, lotions, bath salts and yummy chocolate at your bedside, coffee, tea, cookies, popcorn and smores. All for a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: They also have cottages that are larger.
