“Absolutely wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

We stayed 2 nights and really didn't want to leave! This is the best B&B ever for us. Carol has thought of every detail and everything is first class. Her breakfasts were delicious, plentiful and the home baked breads were awesome. We are planning our return trip. Her knowledge of the area was unbelievable. There is a binder book in the room that gives details of the area and how to get around.

We wanted to get away from the crowds for Labor Day and Herb and Carol had the perfect place!! Lovely setting in Amish country -- only the sounds of crickets and the clip-clop of the horse-drawn buggies -- yet close enough to play golf and shop to your heart's content. We stayed in one of the cottages and they are most definitely worth the price.

Room Tip: The 2-room suite is nice, but there are no closets or dressers -- one of the cottages is definitely...

We're thrilled that this guest had a great weekend.
If anyone is considering our B&B vs. our Cottages, please note that the 4 original rooms were built by the previous owner with hooks & hangers on the wall instead of a closet. I guess that was part of the "Plain People" living in Amish Country. If guests need additional hangers they are available. The Garden Gate Suite and Cottages were built by us and each have a closet to hang your clothes instead of hooks & hangers.
For those considering a stay at our B&B we want you to know that the 2-room suite that this guest stayed in the first night has a king bed with pillow-soft mattress, 600 thread-count cotton sateen bed sheets, luxury bath robes and bath amenities, rocking-reclining Lazyboy microsuede chairs, 32" flat screen TV with Satellite, Coblentz Chocolates by your bed-side, and a kitchenette with a mini-refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave. The kitchenette is stocked with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and bottled water. So please don't shy away from a B&B stay due to the lack of closet.

I stayed at the Garden Gate Get-a-Way from an early checkin (before noon) on Aug 7 to also an early checkout (before 8 am) on Aug 14, 2013. I was in the area to attend a continuing education class to maintain my license for Massage Therapy, so I left before breakfast every day I was there. Carol put out a very nice breakfast every evening for my early rise. I woke to start my Tai Chi Chih every morning in the garden. The stars were out when I started and 30 minutes later as I was wrapping up the sun was out and the horses next door were completely visable, the birds were singing and the Amish wagons were making there way to their meeting place. In the evening when I got back there was a camp fire going in the garden and many guests to share the day with.
The innkeepers Herb & Carol Steffey made very good recomendations for places to go for dinner and they also joined in at the campfire in the garden. They went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable and meaningful. I really liked the atmosphere and the views of the country side. I had an amazing stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very nice

Who'd believe a camp fire in July would be so relaxing? The Garden Gate is run by a wonderful innkeeper, Carol (with her husband) who is an expert on Amish area culture. The Garden Gate was tucked away and quiet. Our room was a perfect, clean and well designed. Breakfast was made by Carol for five quests, fresh and with great selections of pastries, and fruit and a fantastic baked egg dish. Carol is amazing. She is sincere, intelligent and seems to completely enjoy her work. She is entertaining (I suggested she do a reality show), but absolutely respectful of her Amish neighbors. She had the skill of listening to the rhythm of her quests--she was never overbearing in her conversation, and was able to lead us to many places we had never seen. This advice made our getaway perfect. The down side of writing such a glowing review is that this spot will be "discovered". It certainly deserves to be.

Room Tip: We plan to visit in January or Feb. Autumn seems very booked!

If you don't like the chaos in Berlin and are looking for a nice place to relax by the campfire with the owners and other guests, this is the place for you. Carol will make you a delicious breakfast and give you suggestions for your visit to Amish Country. Our favorite part of the day is the evening campfire. The rooms are on the small side but, very clean and well decorated. Try something new, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Room Tip: Check the internet for pictures and descriptions, there's something for everyone.

We are thrilled that our campfires and breakfast were such a big hit! For anyone reading about our small rooms I would like to let people know that we have several room types: standard, deluxe, and Jacuzzi suite, plus a 2-room suite. Our standard rooms are about 12' x 14' however we also have a 17' x 23' Jacuzzi suite, and then our 2-room suite is even larger. Thus we have something for everyone.

It was my wife and I's first time with a Bed & Breakfast. We will definitely recommend and go back here. Carol met us at check in and we were treated like family. The nightly bonfire was a neat touch. The room was comfortable with a queen bed and two chairs. The flat screen was easy to watch and use, and the fireplace was great for the ambiance. The morning buffet breakfast was more than I expected. Thank you for a very relaxing stay!

my husband and i had a restful and relaxing stay the the "fall's kiss" cottage for 2 days recently. the cottage was beautifully decorated and had wooden floors and a raised wood ceiling, a powerful gas fireplace open on 3 sides, and great pastoral views from 2 windows and 2 glass doors to the porch. the bed was superlative - with 600 count sheets that felt like satin, and the bathroom had a giant whirlpool tub and double sinks.
Carol is a wonderful host - she had a box of chocolates, chilled sparkling apple juice, a cheese and cracker plate and coffee/tea/and hot chocolate ready for use on arrival. ( and 2 mint chocolates by the bed for turn down). There is a kitchenette with a microwave and frig for use also.
she walked a hot yummy breakfast to the cottage every morning.
on top of that was the binder full of information about the area she had in the cottage for our use - we took it with us during our rambles through the country side and it was a terrific guide to the best in the area. the location is easier to get to than it appears - right off rte 39 between berlin and millersburg.

Room Tip: cottages are great for privacy and sense of getting away from it all
