My wife and I just got back from a two night stay at Country View! This was our first time staying there, but I am sure it will not be our last. We stayed in the Victorian Suite which featured a whirlpool tub in the bathroom. The room itself was basic, but nicely decorated and very clean. The only "issue" with the room as I noticed on previous reviews is the fact that the televisions do not get any channels, but there is a DVD/VCR hook up. There are movies available to watch, but I would recommend bringing some if you are the type of person who likes to unwind in front of the television at the end of your day.
The location of the bed and breakfast was perfect! It was very peaceful, off the beaten track yet close enough to get to all of the major attractions but far enough away that you were never tempted to sneak back to the bed and breakfast for a nap. While in Kinzers be sure to stop by the thrift store down the road, the Amish grocery store just up the road, and the general store within walking distance.
Eli and Barbara were great hosts. Very warm and welcoming and just genuiely nice people! They made great suggestions of what to do and helped to make our stay better. The breakfast in the morning was good! They call it a continental breakfast, but it is more than that. There is cereal, oatmeal, bagels, pastries, and at least one hot dish. Be sure to get the baked oatmeal recipe!
My only disappointment was the weather was a bit cold, so I didn't get to enjoy reading out on the front porch which I envisioned. Oh well, if that is my only complant I am doing well!
