More about Inn At Amish Acres Hotel

Amish Acres Restaurant Barn

by AngieJeff about Amish Acres Restaurant Barn

This origianl barn was built over 100 years ago and dismantled and relocated to the historic farm. The atmosphere is warm and cozy with natural lighting coming through the numerous windows facing the orchard. Lots of space for kids. Extraordinary value in the set price of $14.95 for all you care to eat including dessert and beverage! The menu is served family style - all you care to eat. The warm homemade hearth bread with locally made apple butter is delicious. But so are the green beans, sage dressing and egg noodles with beef. You choose two of four meat selections - turkey, ham, chicken, beef.

Amish Acres Annual Arts and Crafts Fair

by riorich55

Over a 4 day period every year at the end of July/beginning of August, the Amish community of Nappanee, Indiana has an Arts and Crafts festival with the usual offerings of fair food and entertainment.

The fair is held on the grounds of Amish Acres which is home to a recreated Amish Village of the 1800's. The Village is complete with an old one room school house, cow barn, meat and cheese shop, ice cream and fudge shop, a community players theatre in a round barn, full service Amish restaurant among others.

We spent several hours at the fair having a lunch of a pulled pork sandwich (Rich) and 1/2 slap of ribs (Sue) along with purchasing the standard fair food of Kettle Corn (PICTURE 3) and Roasted and Flavored German nuts (we got the variety pack).

Entertainment we saw included, The Whip Guy, who has been on the Tonite Show and is still in the running (as of August, 2009) in the America's Got Talent program, period singers and musicians (see VT video), and a puppeteers show. (PICTURE 2)

Take a Walk Around Town

by riorich55

After our visit to Amish Acres we decided to walk around town a bit, since we wanted to get a few more pictures of the area. Sue also got some shopping in as we stopped in one of the antique stores where Sue found a McDonalds' plate the depicted scenes of McDonald's from the 60's and 70's when we would frequent it as high school and college students.

The other pictures and a brief description as follows:

Picture #1 - The Post Office had a very original totem type sign that was carved from a tree that had been standing there, but probably had sustained some damage at one time.

Picture #2 - The Movie Theatre with showings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. As I was taking this picture I met the owner's wife who mentioned the cooled air sign was an original from the 1930's.

Picture #3 - An old Bank Building (not sure what is in there now), but liked the shoe sign on the side of the building and the alarm box on the top left side.

Picture #4 - One of the houses on a side street. Sue took the picture while I bought 2 glasses of lemonade for 25 cents each across the street from 2 girls who showed us their new puppy.

Picture #5 - The Amish are know for quilt making and these representations were on the side of a building as we entered the downtown area.

Home cookin'

by staindesign about Restaurant Barn @ Amish Acres

Amish Acres is a great place to visit with families. In the summer there are a lot of things to do, buggy rides & historic tours, as well as a huge Arts & Crafts fair. I recently had the opportunity to eat at the restaurant, named "Restaurant Barn". The lunch is great because there are 2 options: $12-14 per person with a huge buffet that is brought to your table or $8.95 with a choice of one of 5 options. We went for the latter, it included our choice of the beef stew, 2 biscuits, sweet pickles, sweet & sour cabbage salad, & a drink. All of the items are homemade, so that pretty much means they are delicious!!

Another cute side note: the waitresses dress up in long dresses simular to the style pioneer days. The best thing in the whole place is the apple butter!

Northern Indiana in September - 2009

by sgoet

We will be staying a week at our timeshare in Mishawaka. The itinerary so far is maybe a day in Southbend (nortre dame, studebaker), a day in Shipshewana/Amish country, a day at Indiana Dunes Nat'l Park, a day to visit relatives in Fort Wayne. We'll have 2 or 3 more days. Any ideas within a 50-100 miles of Mishawaka? We like to hike and ride bikes, and taste wine. Any restaurant suggestions?

They have a summer theatre in Warsaw, Indiana called the Wagon Wheel which is 50 miles south east of Mishawaka. Check out summer shows and times at their website http://www.wagonwheeltheatre.com/Index/index.php. Also you can check out the Indiana Dunes State Park. VT member DABS has more information about that on her pages along with info on Shipshewana.

Also in South Bend is the College Football Hall of Fame. They have their Enshrinement Festival on July 17 and 18. More information at www.ExploreSouthBend.org.

Here's a link for Indiana festivals, if you are here for the blueberry festival (sept 4-7), there is a bike ride that we do every year that is fun

http://www.indianafestivals.org/september.html

If you are looking for organized bike rides in Indiana and the surrounding area, Chicago is probably a little too far for you to go, but the BLT on Sept 13th is an excellent ride, it goes through the southside and all the grand boulevards, lots of interesting architecture and parks and things visitors to Chicago usually don't see

In Mishawaka, you are not far from the Michigan border, you might have a look at some of the towns along Lake Michigan like Saugatuck and South Haven. They are a little touristy but by mid September all of the crowds are gone.

In Shipshewana, if you schedule your visit for a Wednesday you can see the auction and the flea market, I think the auction is interesting to see. A good place to eat out that way is Essenhaus in Middlebury, there is also Amish Acres but I haven't been there in many years. I defy anyone to leave Essenhaus' bakery without something, all kinds of pies, cookies, bread, their awesome sweet and sour dressing and special peanut butter.
