Just came home yesterday from this motel after spending an extended weekend there and must say all three of us loved it. We had an 8 year old with us who had a blast.
I checked out the Trip Advisor reviews before booking it and whil the reviews were great, we had a slight concern in regards to the dates of the reviews. It had been a while since someone had posted one but I will say they were spot on.
We loved the location of this motel. It is right on Route 340, (Old Phila Pike) in the heart of Amish country. There is an Amish farm right across the highway from this motel with cows and horses that are cool to watch right from the comfort of your room or the patio. My lone complaint; and this is far from the motel's fault, is the amount of trucks on this highway that can make your cow viewing experience a little noisy. Other than that though, no complaints.
We booked the two day package which I would highly recommend doing. It is a fantastic value for sure and we also booked an individual night as well. We had such a great time here that we stayed an extra night.
The location of this motel is outstanding. We are not fans of Route 30 and all the commercialism that has overtaken that highway. If we wanted traffic, chain restaurants and obnoxious people in a rush, we can just stay home. The Amish Country Motel is right near the Bird In Hand Farmer's Market, Kitchen Kettle Village, the Plain and Fancy restaurant, Water's Edge Mini Golf, etc. It is also only a ten or 15 minute drive to other great spots like the National Christmas Center and Dutch Wonderland.
As a guest here you are allowed to use the facilities of the Bird In Hand family Inn which has 2 great indoor pools, a nice outdoor pool, a small game room and fitness room and an awesome spa. The food here was also pretty good as well. This setup is nice because the Amish Country Motel does not have much to do on their grounds. There is a small outdoor pool and an old swingset/slide and that is about it. The Bird In Hand Family Inn is not even a mile down the road so the arrangement is very convenient.
I joined the VIP Club for this family of Inns when I left and definitely plan on going back. The location, price/value and the friendliness of the staff is unmatched as far as we were concerned. Oh yeah, there is also a small petting zoo and Buggy Rides only a few hundred feet from the Motel that the little one enjoyed over and over again.
