5 Winter Activities in Ohio Amish Country 20 Feb 2015, 10:50 am

Holmes County offers winter activities in Ohio to keep you warm in the heart of Amish Country.  Here are our favorite

5 Winter Activities in Ohio

Winery at Perennial Vineyards
  1. Take a sleigh ride at The Farm at Walnut Creek.  The horse-drawn sleigh rides travel through the exotic animal area so you might see some animals along your trip.
  2. Two of the best museums in Ohio offer indoor amazement:  Warther Museum in Dover and David Warther Carvings in Sugarcreek.  These master carver works will leave you speechless.
  3. Sip some wine and indulge in homemade pizza while warming in front of the fireplace at the Winery at Perennial Vineyards near Brewster.
  4. Visit Heini’s Cheese near Berlin.  Watch cheese being made through a glass viewing gallery, sample up to 50 kinds of cheese, and shop in their gift shop.
  5. Drool as you watch chocolates being made at Coblentz Chocolate Factory in Walnut Creek, Ohio.  When you are ready to shop and take home some chocolate you can choose from pre-boxed assortments or visit the counter and design your own box with your favorites.

There are so many shops, museums, historical homes, antiques, etc., to visit that you could easily spend several days.  The above mentioned are just 5 winter activities in Ohio that are favorites of ours.

Thanksgiving in Ohio Amish Country 13 Oct 2014, 9:39 am

If you are a “Thanksgiving orphan” where family and friends are going elsewhere leaving you alone for the holiday then why not spend Thanksgiving in Ohio Amish Country?  We suggest arriving on Wednesday so that you can explore the area, pick up some cheese to snack on or local baked goods.  On Thursday some of our local restaurants have wonderful Thanksgiving dinner options.  Those restaurants include Farmstead in Berlin, Tarragon in Millersburg, or Chalet in the Valley near Charm.  Don’t rush home after the holiday because on Friday is the annual living Nativity parade in Berlin in the evenings. The shops will be open at night after the parade and providing refreshments.  On Saturday P. Graham Dunn, and many other stores, kick off the holiday shopping season with open houses, sales, and new merchandise.
