Hershberger Quilt Shop

There have been so many people I have met that were looking for this quilt shop. This lady brings a lot of the local population an out let to sell there quilts. I also have been told the quilts are very good at a reasonable price.

The lady is amish, So I dont have a phone number for you, but I have the address

It is located at 6024 on 77 in bunker hill, ohio. It is also just a little north of Heini's cheese and right next to the school. There is a pretty good sized sign at the drive way, so it is impossible to miss this place.

Lehman's Hardware

If you have one day to spend down in amish country, this is one of the places you might want to try. It has a huge collection of goods and services that amish might use. It will take you the whole day to go through the whole thing, because of the huge size of the whole complex.

You will find them in kidron ohio. A word of note if you are not into auctions, then check to see if there is one there on that day. The town is small, but the acutions are huge. If you dont like the crowds stay away. If you dont mind the crowds, i would go for it.

This is an another post about great store.

The Inn at Honey Run

I see the signs all the time on the way to work. I was wondering why these signs were pointing to this place in the middle of the country. Me and my wife decided to drive by there. It is off the beaton pass, so you are not going to be hit by any crowds. We also like the looks of the buildings, being in a peaceful setting. I also heard a lot of great comments of people that have stayed there.

If you need a place to stay, it should be worth looking at.

Landoll's Castle

This is a very unique place to visit and/or stay while you are in amish country. It is actually near loudonville on the south side, and in the woods.

I had the pleasure to see this place being put together and was mesmorized by all the stuff he was putting into this wonderful building.

The danger of staying at some place so increadible, is that you may not want to leave. Oh well, you are just going to have to plan another trip.
