More about Travelodge Lancaster Amish Country

One of the BEST bed and breakfasts around

by keida84 about The Churchtown Inn

We have stayed many times at the Churchtown Inn. In the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish country, this inn is our favorite east coast bed and breakfast. Owners Michael & Diane Franco exude warm hospitality and welcome. The inn, built before the time of the American Revolution, 1735, has a grace and charm of it's own.

The rooms are unique and well appointed, several of our favorites are the Davies room, the Griffin room, the Jacobs room, don't forget the Clarkson room. My gosh, that is about the whole 2nd floor.

Diane is a marvelous cook and her multi course breakfast is a wonder in itself but the dining location is in a glass solarium which overlooks the farmlands which is so beautiful summer, fall, winter or spring.

The room rates are most reasonable, and it is a place to visit time and time again. Matter of fact on any given visit I'll wager there is at least 1 couple that has been there more than once. The main reason? Michael and Diane Lying in bed you can hear the "clip clop" of the horse's hooves as the amish carts go by. By all means make sure you try the homemade granola, a staple at the Churchtown Inn, I always have Diane set aside "three bags full" to take home.

Each room now has access for high speed wireless internet.

UPDATE: September 2005: Michael and Diane are no longer the owners of the Churchtown Inn, however the new owners were guests of the Inn and Diane told me that they loved the Inn and put an offer in the day it went up for sale. We wish all the best to the new owners and to Michael and Diane, we will see you one of these days in Puerto Rico

Amish country

I visited the Lancaster area, where there are many Amish people.

They live in a world very different than I am used to. Great to see the horse and buggies and they way they live with no electricity or cars.

Philly cheese sandwhiches ARE THE BEST!

In the Amish country

by GUYON

The Amish people came in America during the 16° Century to flee the persecution of both catholics and protestants. They are anabaptists such as they are baptized only when they are adults.

It is a Frenchman who was at the origin of the Amish religion and its separating between the Mennonits during the 17° Century. Jacob Amman was borned at Sainte Marie aux Mines and he spread a rule closer to the Bible.

An Amish man is dressed simply with a shirt and a hat, black in Winter and a straw hat in Summer. He has a beard without mustach because their persecutors had one. The woman has a long modest gown, often black or grey and her hair is covered by a headgear. The young children have no shoes in Summer.

They are known to refuse the modern life (for some aspects only) and the violence, even to protect themselve.

Their religion prohibits the human image and they normaly refuse to be photographed. Anyway, we were not in a zoo and we did not take photographs of them. This one is a postcard.

They are 16.000 in the Lancaster county and the film "Witness" (with Harisson Ford) gave them a worldwide fame.

Amish Country in Pennsylvania

"Pretzels, Family Style Dining, and Horse & Buggies"

Visiting Amish country in Pennsylvania is a great way to take a step back in time and even wish for the simple things in life....work, family, faith. The Amish folk are very pleasant and welcoming. Driving through the quiet farmlands and getting caught behind a horse and buggy and double yellow lines in the road force you to slow down and take time to soak in the culture. Visit a working farm, take a buggy ride, and spend the night in the caboose of a grounded train. There's pretzel twisting and dining family style, too for a great Amish experience.

Lancaster, Amish Country

by Easty

"Pennsylvania Dutch Country"

This page will focus on Lancaster County more than Lancaster City. Lancaster County is the center of the Amish culture in America. Going through the countryside of Lancaster County is a trip back in time. It is also where modern culture clashes with 19th century like culture. The beautiful farmland and quaint villages make Lancaster County a great place to visit.

Buggy Tours

by cattinni

Is there a Buggy tour that leaves from the town of Lancaster?I am taking the train there,so I will not have transportation.Most of the tours seem like they are out of the main city area.Any suggestions???

Re: Buggy Tours

by nicolaitan

all things taken equal, you really need a car to appreciate the Amish country and should consider renting one if only for the time you are here.

I also agree that it is difficult to get around for a buggy tour without a car. Most of the buggy rides that I am familiar with are either in Bird-in-hand or Smoketown. There is a lovely market in center city on Saturdays if you are going to be in Lancaster City on Saturday.

Places to live in Lancaster

by hisrae

My wife recently got a job in Lancaster, PA. I'm wondering where a good place to live would be in Lancaster or the nearby area. We have a 3 year old daughter, and we would like to live away from industry, in a safe, low-crime area that has some places (restaurants, shops) within walking distance. Please advise.

Re: Places to live in Lancaster

by Docu2001

Well ... two out of three isn't bad ... Lancaster, PA is in the middle of the countryside - farming and discount shopping are the main industries and there is little or no crime - you are in Amish country there - real country!

You could try Elizabethtown ... there is a small college there and a train station ... but you better get used to driving ... or riding a horse ... there are not many towns where you can walk to nice shops and restaurants from your home ...

I used to live in the Pocono Mountains, lancaster is prime amish country and it's beautiful! Anywhere close by will be low-crime and safe...not much industry nearby at all.

Things to do in the Summer?

by bc416

Hey all,

I'm coming up to Lancaster, PA on Friday for a family reunion on Thursday, and I was wondering what would be some fun things to do around town? The one thing that I have planned is to see Bonerama at the Marion Court Room on the Sunday, 22.

Thanks for your help!
