AmishView Inn & Suites
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Bird in Hand
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2008

Stayed for two nights in a suite here in July. The room was as described, very comfortable with a large hot tub and great views across farmland. We really couldn't fault the accommodation, and we had dinner on one evening next door in Plain and Fancy, which was very good. On another night we did as one other reviewer did and dined at Millers Smorgasboard. This was not so good; the food was bland albeit plentiful. It was disgusting however to watch a lot of very obese people gorging themsleves on far too much food. Maybe we hit the place on a bad night, but the restaurant seemed to be full of people with disgusting eating habits.
To get back to the Amish View Inn though, it would have been perfect except for one thing. The breakfast was served on high quality but disposable plates and cutlery. A man was fully occupied with removing sackfuls of these items, what a waste! It all seemed so out of place with the nice environmnet just outside the window.
The hotel pool is small but never crowded. There is also a good laundry room there as well. All in all, a great place except for the wasteful practices of the breakfast operation. It would cost less to use normal plates and cutlery, so why don't they do it? It would stop me staying there again, unless I was assured that this had stopped.

This place was fantastic! It was so nice to stay in such a great place. This hotel had everything for our family. The pool was great. They had a laundry facility that we used. Only one washer and dryer, so we had to wait until the next morning to do laundry. It was clean, quiet and perfect for us! The breakfast was great too. Loved it!

We enjoyed the pool so much that it was too late to find someplace to eat that wasn't closed by 8pm, so that was our only disappointment. We would have loved to have an authentic Amish meal, but instead we were stuck with a chain restaurant that was open later.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this property. The front desk employees are very polite and helpful. We had a studio suite with a whirlpool. This is a wonderful room to stay in. We had a king size wrought iron bed. Bed was absolutely wonderful to sleep in. Also in our room we had a sleeper sofa, small kitchen area with microwave and refrigerator. Whirlpool/jacuzzi was very relaxing after a long day. Hotel supplies you with personal items such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc. from Bath and Body Works. Complimentary breakfast is made to order eggs and omletts, waffles, bacon and ham, fried potatoes, etc. Very nice breakfast included with room rate. Only bad thing of entire stay was the price of room. This place is very pricey (at least $200 a night) but it is a very nice, relaxing stay. Will not go there every time we need to have a hotel, but occasionally for a special occasion. Great place for anniversaries, wedding nights, or any other special occasion. Package plans available, so check them out.

Rooms are much larger than a typical hotel room. They have fridges and microwaves as well as DVD players. Free in-room Internet access Rooms are clean, well-kept and nicely-furnished. Hallways luxurious, with paintings on the walls and nice furniture. Cozy eating area off the lobby with good choices for breakfast, including eggs made to order. Breakfast included in room rate. Eating area has great view of Amish farm.
The woman who checked us in was really nice. She gave us coupons for free meals at nearby Miller's to make up for not being able to get us adjacent rooms, even though we hadn't even requested rooms together. The coupons were worth about $30 each.
Lobby requires card access at night.
Only drawbacks: DVD player made odd sound when playing; shops and Amish theater adjacent to hotel are not open during the winter.
The hotel is in the middle of Amish country and close to Mill'er's Smorgasbord --- a terrific buffet restaurant. Amish buggy rides are nearby (recommended). Rates are pretty low during the off-season.
Overall, a nice place to stay.

We picked the Amish View Inn for our 40th wedding anniversary based on the consistently positive reviews here. Except for some minor details, our choice was rewarded. The $200/night average rate compares poorly to other fine B&B's we have enjoyed, however, we did get a medium sized suite for the fare. I agree with so many others who have said it is very clean. The lone exception was a dirty coffeemaker the first day. Breakfast was good but not the gourmet versions we have been served at more traditional B&B's. Location could not have been better. For those inclined to order wine, the only white wine offered is white zinfandel. It was chilled in the fridge when we arrived, however, I asked them to switch it out to champagne when I found that it was the only white.
