Bed and Breakfast in Millersburg,Ohio Recommends Lehmans

According to a bed and breakfast in Millersburg, Ohio, just about everyone that comes to Amish Country wants to visit Lehmans.   When the store started in 1955 it was more of a hardware store and it catered to the local Amish providing items that they can use that didn't require electricity.  Today they have a 32,000 square foot store in Kidron, Ohio, that still caters to the Amish but has so much more that tourists love to shop there.  It is an adventure to walk through the store because if you look up and around you will find museum-quality antiques throughout the store.  When it comes to shopping you will find old stove and refrigerator reproductions, wood stoves, kitchen gadgets, one of the largest selections of cookie cutters anywhere, oil lamps, toys, books, pottery, oil lamps, and more!  If you have old oil lamps or even an apple peeler with broken parts you are likely to find replacement parts for them at Lehmans.  One of the most unusual shoppers they have had is Hollywood.  Set designers from Hollywood have purchased items from Lehmans for props in movies such as Broke Back Mountain.  They are located on Kidron Road (CR52) just south of State Route 30 and North of State Route 241.

Amish Country Inn Among B&B's with Free Rooms for Veterans

For the last couple of years a group of Innkeepers associated with the "Better Way to Stay" have donated some, or all, of their guest rooms on Veterans Day to both Active Military and Veterans for free.  It is part of a campaign called B&Bs for Vets.  Our Amish Country Inn is among the participants.  This year we have offered the best rooms in the bed and breakfast as part of this National offer.  As of this writing we still have availability.  All the Veterans have to do is present valid military ID when they check-in and the room is free.  The 2012 date for B&Bs for Vets is Sunday, November 11, 2012.  This gift to Veterans started with one innkeeper in West Virginia and has snow-balled in to a National offer from bed and breakfasts in every State.  For more information on Better Way to Stay visit this link.  (Advanced reservations are required.  Cancel policies may apply a some B&Bs.)

Poetic Guest Review of Amish Country Ohio Bed and Breakfast

After a Texas guest checked out of our Amish Country Ohio Bed and Breakfast we found a great review of her stay in a poetic form:

Garden Gate GetAway

Away from all the city rush and noise
is a bed ad breakfast that's a favorite choice

Visit in Spring when the roses bloom or 
in Summer months for the birds sweet tune

The most glorious season is Autumn when all the leaves change
the oranges, golds, and reds let the winds rearrange

Look out to the hills with green fields to tend
behind them trees in fall colors that never end

Snuggle at night in a room so quaint
every detail is perfect from furnishings to paint

Herb and Carol, the owners, are as friendly as can be
give suggestions and maps and business names for free

Each bed with clean linens as fresh as new snow
tempting cookies and candy, where ever you go

If you're in the area you must stop and stay
in Millersburg, Ohio at the Garden Gate Get-A-Way
