Amish Country Getaway is the first bed and breakfast in Ohio to purchase a tour bus and offer special tours exclusively to B&B guests. In 2013 there is a brand new tour package called Culture, Customs, and Cuisine. This weekend package includes a 3 hour tour where guests will learn how the Amish live and why they honor certain customs. Did you ever wonder why the Amish live in "Church Districts"? Do you want to know why their education stops at the 8th grade? Ever wonder if an Amish wedding includes a bridal gown, bands, caterers, etc.? What takes place at an Amish funeral? How can a man run a prosperous business without electricity? The tour ends with dinner in a private Amish home for just the bed and breakfast group. The 2013 tour package schedule starts in February and ends in June.
