My wife and I have been staying at Amishview Inn since 2005. We go at least twice a year. What I like most about Amishview Inn is that it is very relaxing and you are so close to many places for shopping, entertainment, and exploring. The rooms are clean and open, though not modern. It would be nice if they upgraded the TVs from the old CRTs to flatpanels. However, I don't go to Amishview Inn to watch TV. I go because it is relaxing and the environment is so peaceful. The bathrooms are always clean--nothing fancy. We typically stay in the one room suite though in 2010 we stayed in the two room suite on one trip because my parents were with us.
The beds are comfortable in that I've never had a problem sleeping. The view is incredible (See my photos). The kitchen is ok. We didn't really use it much--Hey we were on vacation! The service is very good in that they are responsive when we call. We haven't had to call much. Housekeeping is very friendly and nice.
Though the rooms are very nice, what I liked most about staying at Amishview Inn is the outside area. I love walking outside and taking in the view of the farm across the street (Rt 340), the garden right on the premises (large garden), and the general feel of the place. It is very peaceful to me. The Plain & Fancy restaurant is on premise and they have a very nice gift shop. You can also get a buggy ride right on the premises.
The breakfast is nice. Typically they have omlets to order, sausage, baked oatmeal, muffins, cakes, cereals, fruit, etc. They have waffles too. I don't think I've ever had pancakes there. We sometimes go up to Millers for a fuller breakfast. The exercise room is ok--small. They have a few treadmills, and eliptical, bike, free weights, and a Universal machine. The swimming pool is nice too.
There is a choice for dinner. You can go to Bird-n-Hand Family restaurant a couple of miles or so up the road, Millers, or of course Plain and Fancy. There are other places relatively close by too.
The shopping. You are very close the the outlets, Kitchen Kettle Village, and a plethora of stores on Rt. 30. There are also little shops on 340 and back roads too. You are not too far from the Crystal Cave or Hershey Park.
I love going to Intercourse/Bird-n-Hand and I love staying at the Amishview Inn. I highly recommend it. Oh. One more thing. It is a bit pricy relatively speaking. However, it is worth it. For example, this past thanksgiving (2010) we had originally made reservations with Eden Resorts, but just couldn't pull myself away from Amishview Inn. I cancelled the Eden Resorts reservations and made new ones with Amishview Inn (not that Eden Resorts is bad. It is more modern than Amishview Inn, but the environment isn't as peaceful and relaxing, which I really want and need).
