This is one of our favorite B & Bs, and we have returned often. Each season provides not only a different atmosphere at the Inn, but the countryside surrounding it reveals a unique beauty with seasonal changes. You'll also find yourself within 20 miles of Amish farms and stores. The in is run by a husband and wife team, he a professional chef, with rooms decorated with antique furniture and accessories. Our favorite stay was during the Christmas season when holiday decorations made for a postcard setting. Although there are unattached cottages available we have always requested a room in the main house, the Wakeman House built in 1873. The food is delicious and very eye catching. An accomplished amatuer pianist, Chef Gerard, grew up in South Africa has taught culinary arts around the world, has been head chef at numerous restaurants in major cities including Chicage, nad has had television shows. If you lucky he will sit down at the piano during dinner and provide a wide range of musical numbers. Dinner is prepared only on Saturday nights, except for groups, but there are other nearby restaurants to accomodate your needs. Expect to spend some time once you start a conversation. Both husband and wife are great conversationalists with a wide background of adventures to share and take an interst in their guests.
