Vacation Rental Home choice - Nickel Mines or Intercourse?

Intercourse will be in the heart of the Tourist area. If the home is on 340 or 772 there will be a large amount of traffic.

Intercourse is surrounded by Amish farms, so if the house is out of town you will see a good deal of Amish activity.

Nickel Mines is completely out of the tourist area.However almost all of the farms in the area are Amish. No restaurants and very few shops in the immediate area.

Thanks for that...

Do you know if Leacock Road would be a good location? Is this Intercourse or Paradise? Or are they both the same... I am thinking they are totally different places but from the way they are advertised it is confusing!

Thank you :)

Intercourse is North of Paradise and Old Leecock Rd. Connects the two. You go thru Gordonville on the way.

Having not seen the ads you refer to its difficult for me to reply exactly However:

The main "TOURIST ATTRACTIONS" are along Routes 30 and 340. which parrallel each other (340 is 2 OR 3 miles north of 30) In between is the historic heart of the Amish settlement, with farms that have been Amish for over 200 years, and small crosroad hamlets.

Intercourrse is on the Eastern end of the tourist area on 340. Paradise is on the Eastern end of the Tourist area on 30.

Intercourse is more upmarket than Paradise, higher end shops. Paradise

shops tend to be more of the flea market variety.

The only Leacock Road I know heads northwest from Pardise towards the crossroad hamlet of Gordonville.

Unless your house is in Paradise itself, it should be in the Country surrounded by Amish farms.

As mentioned, Nickel Mines is considerably more rural. The Amish farms here have only been established within the last 40 or 50 years(The Amish population has been growing rapidly) and the tourist attractions have yet to follow them.

I would go with Intercourse, solely for the reason of being in the middle of everything. It's a good location.
