Verdant View Farm Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 4 Strasburg B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 9, 2013

On our first trip to the Amish country, we decided to stay at the Verdant View Farm, and it was an amazing experience. Don and Ginny are wonderful hosts, who definitely make you feel like part of their family. We stayed at the main house, and had a great country-style bedroom, which was much better than a "dull" hotel room. Breakfast is served each morning family style in the main house dining room, and you have the opportunity to meet with travelers from all over the world. The kids were outside all day, in the barn milking cows, playing with the barn cats, and wandering the property. The farm is close to all the Amish attractions, so they are easy drives. It's a unique experience to wake up in the morning to the sound of horse-drawn carriages out your window! We had such a great time at the farm, we went back 4 months later for a longer stay. If you are looking for a great place to stay, with the feeling of home, this is the place to stay when you are in the area.

Ever since the first time I brought my then 2nd grader (who will be entering the 8th grade next fall) to stay with Ginny, Don and their family, we have enjoyed visiting every summer. We enjoy the comraderie of the family, the staff and the guests all sitting around the same breakfast table, sharing their life and travel stories and tips, singing the "Johnny Appleseed Song", as well as the scrumptious, fresh, family style breakfasts made with locally procured ingredients. Even when we stayed there without my husband,we felt comfortable and safe in the clean, economical, comfortable, and well appointed rooms. It is wonderful to feel comfortable enough to allow our son to roam the property on his own. We always enjoy the farm tour, the breakfast wagon, feeding the goats, the donkey, the chickens, the bunnies and especially the calves. The hearts of the children are always won over by the kittens. It is a wonderful learning experience for young children to see where milk comes from, first hand, and to milk the cows and feed the calves alongside their parents.We highly recommend the Verdant View for families of with young children, visiting the beautiful country side of the Penn Dutch, especially those who appreciate Thomas the Tank Engine, since the train can be seen from the property. It is convenient to Hershey Park as well.

We loved staying here, where we connected with something often missing from today's life. Simple, decent, safe, interesting, with one of the best breakfasts we have ever had. Ginny and Don made us feel like family members. The farm, milking a cow, and walking around were exactly what we were looking for...we will be back!

We did not stay at the bed and breakfast but we did do a farm tour.. We found out on a Saturday that what I booked online for Sunday morning was not going to happen because they do not do tours on Sunday mornings. So the woman I spoke to asked if we wanted to come that afternoon and we said yes. The young women that gave us the tour was fantastic. She knew the farm well. She answered all of our questions. Our teenage girls throughly enjoyed themselves. We met and feed a calf. Held bunnies and kittens. Met goats, chickens the dog, Scoobie. Then we saw the cows, learned how they were milked and we got to milk a cow. Crazy I know but it was on my daughter and my bucket list. It was the best part of our trip to Lancaster!

My wife and I had planned a weekend in Lancaster County. I saw Verdant farm on-line and my wife Irene being an animal lover, I thought she would enjoy staying there. I was right we both had a very enjoyable time. Don & Ginny were very friendly and showed us what it was like to run a Dairy Farm. We had a great time. We met a lot of very nice people and learned a lot of new things. The room was clean and comfortable. We plan to go back again in the near future.

The best Bed and Breakfast! We stayed in the small house and rented out two rooms but basically we had the whole house to ourselves in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch country (all Amish neighbors). The place was decorated in a contemporary country fashion and it looked like an interior designer had made the plans. The big screen TV was great for the grandparents to relax at while the kids enjoyed the farm. The farm was all that I had expected. We got a hay ride, tractor ride, history lesson on cows/tobacco, and a delicious, homemade (farm fresh) breakfast daily. The kids especially enjoyed chasing/petting Scooby, the cats, the cows, the calf, the goats, the hens, the sheep, and the rabbits. We also milked a cow, fed some calves, and helped the owners pick some black walnuts. Besides all of the amenities the place has to offer the neighboring community is a real "hot spot". Cherry Crest Farm had bounce houses, a maze, farm games, and everything that you can imagine to entertain kids. The Amish viewing was incredible and we even spoke with several of them as they passed by the house. The steam engine train ride really fascinated the kids and it ran right through the farm. Ginny, the owner, recommended an Amish dinner at a local house and it was superb. We will definitely be back.

Thanks for a lovey trip!!!
