This bed & breakfast is a wonderful place to rest. Sure you can find isolated beaches, mountainside cabins and the like, for some peace and quiet. If your looking for that peace & quiet with easy access to delightful restaurants and outlet shopping... Country View is for you!
Eli and Barbara Smucker (yes - that recognized product name from the store is from their clan), are absolutely down to earth, peaceful, loving, honest folks that God has put on earth. I can say this because I've been going there for several years.
My wife and I stay over when we want to enjoy the Sight & Sound Theater, Amish food and the shopping outlet.... but that's another review I'll write another time.
Country View is very clean and comfortable. They do have tv's and dvd/vhs players but no tv broadcast/cablecast reception - that is why it is soooooooo peaceful. But on the upside.... there is free wi-fi (not the fastest but not the slowest either). Every so often you'll just hear the clippety clappety sound of horses going by, towing the Amish and their buggy. If you're bringing kids, Country View also has some animals on hand for the kiddies to get an up-close/feeding experience!
Barbara's breakfast is limited but it really is scrumptious. I don't always eat oatmeal but her baked blueberry oatmeal really makes me a convert!! There are also a variety of breakfast cereals, fresh fruit, yogart etc... I can really be a pig about the breakfast I eat but there are other visitors there too, so I have to share and be considerate about my portion - which is good. If I ate too big of a breakfast, my Amish lunch would be so far off schedule!
When you have the amenities of home and you want more... well, there are certainly other places for you to go to. The value they provide can't be beat! I know the adage, 'You get what you pay for' but that will depend on what YOU value as well.
