The Carriage Corner B&B is located on a quiet corner just before all the shops on the main drag. The split-level home is quaint and immaculate. The decor is very tasteful country without being kitschy. Gordon, the owner, is very warm and inviting and knowledgeable of the area. We were presented with a map where he outlined some activities based on our tastes and he highlighted which options were open on a Sunday.

We stayed in the Cranberry room, which is the only room upstairs, along with the common area and dining room. There are four additional rooms downstairs. Our room had a private bathroom which was very roomy. Gordon kindly asked us to fold back the quilt before sitting on or placing luggage on the bed and for good reason: The quilt was a hand-stitched Amish quilt which was beautifully done and quite expensive. In the room were lots of nice little touches like a black makeup towel in the restroom, extra pillows in the closet and a folder with a brief history of the area along with local restaurants, shops and activities. Downstairs are the four additional rooms, which I believe only one of them does not have an en-suite a bath. There is also an outside deck in the rear with tables and chairs, and a gazebo out front. Both are decorated with clear Christmas lights for a romantic feeling.

Different B&B's have differing styles of breakfast. Some places lay out a buffet, others serve you like a restaurant but at the Carriage Corner Gordon prefers to serve a family-style breakfast. While there may not be any choices, there was some variety. Fruit and bread is served before the main breakfast. We stayed for two days and on day one we had an egg frittata with turkey ham and on day two we had pancakes and sausage. Both days the breakfast was really, really delicious. Gordon does ask his guests about food allergies upon check-in. I am glad I read the other review who mentioned the saying of grace as it would have caught us a bit off guard had we not known otherwise. Grace is said on Sundays and though we are non-religious, we respect other people's right to religion so we just sat quietly until it was done. Quite frankly, if you are uncomfortable with overt displays of Christianity then you shouldn't be vacationing in Amish country. Breakfast is served promptly at 8:30 am which may be early for some but since everything shuts down so early in the area, we found ourselves going to bed earlier than normal anyway.

All in all, Gordon is a wonderful host and considering the location, decor, food and value I will not hesitate to stay at the Carriage Corner again.

Room Tip: The Cranberry room (#5) is the only room upstairs. The other 4 rooms are downstairs in the split level home. I believe two of the downstairs rooms have a private bath and two share a common bath. The house is kept in immaculate condition.

This B&B is easy to find, close to everything, immaculate and tastefully decorated. The host was helpful with directions and travel tips, and was accommodating to my jumbled schedule of middle of the night arrivals and departures. I stayed in the Pineapple Room with private bathroom across the hall. The home was quiet and comfortable.

We were made to feel very welcome by Gordon when we arrived at this guest house. He showed us a map of the local area and made recommendations of where to visit/eat during our short stay. Our cosy room had a private bathroom across the corridor, both very clean and had nice Amish touches. There were plenty of Amish books in room to read and find out more about the local area. A good selection of tea and coffee was available in the kitchen as well as a lounge area to sit and read or meet other guests. Gordon served a very tasty breakfast at 8.30am which gave us a chance to chat to the other guests. The guest house is in a fantastic location, close to the main sights and we enjoyed a nice walks in the nearby park to walk off the 'all you can eat' dinner (also recommended by Gordon). Parking available free of charge. Gordon was the perfect host and we would definitely stay there again if in the area.
