Explore Amish Country
We're the 1st bed and breakfast in Ohio to purchase our own tour bus in order to offer tours exclusively for our guests. We have several options to choose from: 2-Hour Tour: Departs on Tuesday or Thursday at 10 a.m. (or by appointment) Learn how the Amish live in "church districts", about their education, weddings, funerals and how they work without electricity. Make a couple of stops at Amish-owned businesses for shopping opportunities. 4-Hour Tour: Departs on Monday and Wednesday at 1 p.m. (or by appointment) This is a longer version of our 2-hour tour with more stops at Amish shops and more things to see on a longer itinerary. 4-Hour Highlights of Amish Country: Departs Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. from November - April 2012 (or by appointment). As the cold weather sets in let us do the driving to all of the major attractions in Amish Country! Visit a Christmas store, chocolate factory, cheese factory, Lehmans, bulk foods, Wendell August Forge, and more. Sunday Sunset Tour: This 2-hour tour offers a relaxing ride through the beautiful, rolling hills of Holmes County. Along the way you will learn about Amish lifestyle and customs as we point out things of interest along the way. We even offer something to snack on while you take your tour. Visit our website or call us for pricing.
Bet you never thought you could find great golfing in Ohio's Amish Country?
Well, think again! There are several courses in our area, and they range from flat, simple courses for the beginner to highly rated and challenging courses.
Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast works with a couple of courses to offer Golf Packages to our guests. We have something for all budgets! Black Diamond Golf Course was rated one of the Top 25 Ohio Golf Courses in 2002 Golf Digest! They were nominated for America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses for 2003 Golf Digest. Have you ever played a Par 6 up to 720 yards? You can play 9 holes, 18 holes, or even play all day!
Fire Ridge Golf Course has 18 scenic rolling holes with superb playing conditions. It is located just a few miles from our B&B. It was built in 1930 and is a Par 72. It offers bluegrass fairways and large bent grass greens. You're going to love playing this course!
Other area golf courses include:
Oak Shadows Golf Club, New Philadelphia, Ohio
Hawks Nest Golf Club, Creston, Ohio
The Pines, Orrville, Ohio
Wilkshire Golf Club, Bolivar, Ohio
Zoar Village Golf Course, Zoar, Ohio
Just let us know when you want to come and how many rounds of golf you would like to play, and we will set everything up. For your convenience, we'll offer one package price for everything, and you won't have to worry about paying separately at the golf courses.
After a long day of golfing, come back to the Garden Gate Get-A-Way and relax around our evening campfire. When you are taking a break from golfing, let us set up a narrated, back roads tour of Amish Country, massages, or perhaps horseback riding is your thing!
Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast offers murder mystery packages where you play one of the characters! See our Seasonal Packages page on our own website for pricing, package descriptions, and details on specific dates that we have planned, or you can get a group of friends and family together and we'll set up a mystery just for your group! We suggest making reservations 1 month prior to the murder mystery date to allow us enough time to mail you character and costume information and for you to prepare your character.
