We had the opportunity recently to stay a night at The Amish View Inn and have to say that the place is sqeaky clean like a good Swiss or German hotel...very nice! The location is wonderful out in the middle of farmland. Our room had a beautiful & peaceful view, as did the breakfast room. Our room was very large with a King bed and sleeper sofa, nice TV & DVD player that we used, and frig & microwave; but the decor was a bit over-the-top for us. We love how the Amish View Inn looks from the outside but the heavy ornate furniture just didn't seem to go with the architecture. We realize they are trying to give it an antique bed& breakfast feel and in that they have done a good job, but we would have liked a more simple decor. We also would have preferred to have the bed triple sheeted or with a fresh duvet rather than a bedspread.
The halls are all very clean and well kept and the indoor pool was very warm and immaculate and even though they had a full house while we were there, the hotel was very quiet and we never heard any noise in the halls or from our room. The public area is nice and the coffee set up was welcoming but there is only one sofa and a couple of club chairs in front of the fireplace and the rest of fthe lobby is tables & chairs...good for cards and board games but not for relaxing with a good book. Breakfast was very nice with a great variety of delicious items and a there was a good attention to detail, but it was very crowded.
We travel a lot and stay in hotels approx. 7-10 nights a month and are very picky about celanliness, decor and design and although the Amish View was nice, I'm note sure we would choose it again unless we were going for Christmas and looking for that Dickens style decor. But we can recommend it for it's value for money, cleanliness and great breakfast.
