I received this wonderful review of a visitor’s stay at the Pond View Farm, and asked her permission to share it with you, our readers! If you’ve ever thought about staying at a B&B, especially one where you can learn more about the Amish way of life, this would be a wonderful one to try!
“We stayed one night with Pondview B&B. John and Nancy Fisher and their children were lovely.
The guest house is 4 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath, huge kitchen (full kitchen with all appliances except a microwave oven) electricity throughout the house, living room, huge dining room. Beautiful grounds. The family gave us a tour of their dairy farm operations which was very informative.
There’s plenty of things for kids to do. The farmer’s kids can take children on a pony ride, and to visit with their pet rabbits, cats, dogs, etc. We fed the calves with giant baby bottles and that was fun for us as adults, but of course, it would be a lot of fun for kids to do.
It was $95.00 for the two of us (2 adults) to stay there, but the house is huge and can accommodate a lot more people. I think they said the price is different for a larger group. They accept cash or money orders only.
One of the bedrooms is downstairs, and the rest are upstairs. There’s no air conditioning, but we opened the windows and they had box fans for us to use, so we were comfortable.
Their 63 acre property is beautiful, well manicured, and there’s a shaded area for a picnic. Most importantly, the family was really sweet, and answered all our questions about Amish life. They were a real joy to meet.”
