  • Guest Comments

    Below you’ll find just few of the nice messages left to us by our wonderful guests.

    What a wonderful place to stay! We really enjoyed these cabins, especially since our family of 12 stayed in all the cabins and celebrated Christmas here! We even had the pleasure of experiencing snow here! Thank you for all of the extras! You really make these cabins feel like a home away from home.

    We had a real nice time. We were also surprised by what we found when we got here because your pictures on the internet didn’t do it justice. Thanks for your hospitality.

    What a lovely place – so comfortable, quiet and a view to die for!

    Blessings Lodge was a great place to relax. We were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. We felt right at home. We all enjoyed our stay. Thank you for the hospitality. The kids enjoyed watching the horse and buggies go up and down the road, and we really enjoyed the cookies.

    Thank you for the wonderful hospitality. Your place was more that we could ever have imagined, and the cookies were out of this world. We truly believe that our children are a gift from God, and spending time together is something we always treasure, so the time were spent together at Blessings Lodge and the pictures we took will surely be memories that will last a lifetime.

    What a memorable trip! The Joy room is more than we ever expected. Beautiful room décor and the view! The scrumptious cookies is just what we needed after a long car ride here. We definitely will be back for another relaxing stay.

    What a great first trip to Amish Country. Couldn’t have chosen a better place to stay and will pass the word around about this great place. So relaxing. A great place to get away from the stress of pasturing any life’s rush. I love the quality of the towels and washcloths; hard to find anywhere . Everything was 1st class. Cookies were great.

    My husband took me here for my 40th birthday, and it met and exceeded all my expectations! I have stayed in many cabins in Holmes County, and yours is the most beautiful, roomy, tastefully decorated and reasonable priced lodging that can be found. We liked it so much, we stayed an extra night. This was the perfect birthday gift in every way!

    It has been many years since I was in Berlin, and the accommodations were not even close to what I had the pleasure of experiencing at the Blessings Lodge. You have done yourselves in making your guests feel very welcome, very comfortable and right at home. The warmth we felt from the moment we walked in only carried over into the people we encountered on our entire trip.
