Exploring Lancaster County, Amish Country

Less than an hour away from the Inn is Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, home to the oldest Amish settlement in America. A visit can take you back to a time when the horse & buggy was the main form of transportation and farming was the primary way of life. You can see and experience what that life was like at attractions like The Amish Village, a fun time for the family... and there is much more to see and do in Lancaster.

Lancaster outlet shopping is a tradition for many who make their home in the Brandywine Valley.

If you want to take home a souvenier of your trip to Amish Country, there is nothing better than an authentic Lancaster quilt. Hand-made Lancaster quilts, created by Amish and Mennonite women, are examples of fine craftsmanship and quality. What began as practical objects made for warmth or for gifts or dowry items are now regarded as works of art, collected and appreciated by people around the world. There are so many places to shop for these amazing quilts it is best to consult the online guide. See below.

You can sample the local food and Amish specialties at the country's oldest farmers' market, Lancaster's Central Market located in the heart of Amish country in an iconic 120 year old red brick building bursting with local character. It's a place to shop, people watch and enjoy great food. It's also a place where people just socialize and don't buy anything... coming just to be a part of Market.
