We can offer you Amish country tours by horse & carriage, a sleigh ride, weather permitting or a romantic excursion in our romantic Vis-a-vis carriage. If desired, we'll share with you the customs of "Big Valley". You can visit our barnyard family & sit by the creek or just take a lovely stroll through our town that time forgot, days gone by.
The Belleville flea market 7 miles south of us is on Wednesdays and is a must see experience. There you can see the 3 different sects of Amish that live in our beautiful Valley. You can buy new and used items here plus watch them sell all types of animals from goats, sheep, pigs, cows, horses, rabbits, chickens and the list goes on. It's best to arrive early around 8 a.m. because it starts winding down around 1 p.m.
Around 20 miles from us visit Lincoln Caverns.
No parties. Friends are welcome within a reasonable limit but we prefer small families 5 or 6 or couple stays. No pets, alcohol or smoking.
Happily married wife & mother. I enjoy sharing the beauty of our "Big Valley" through my hobby, photography. Check out our carriage and see us on Dayze Gone Bye.
