The Round Barn at Amish Acres

There are lots of ways to explore the Amish and their fascinating, historic way of life. One of the most popular attractions is Amish Acres, a 80-acre farmstead listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This is a great place for families to visit and partake in guided tours and documentary films. Enjoy farm wagon ride, view broom making and quilting. Of course there is a family style dinner available, and the large and well-known Round Barn theater is a destination for live Broadway-quality musicals. If you are planning a summer trip, the 46th annual Amish Acres Arts and Crafts Festival is August 5 – 8, 2010.

There is nice shopping available there, or visit another favorite for our Nappanee Inn guests, the Borkholder Dutch Village. Much more than a flea market, this is a collection of vendors, over 300, in an air-conditioned hall. Find everything from crafts, furniture, antiques, collectibles and more. Borkholder also hosts weekly indoor antique auctions and flea markets. They also have a Dutch kitchen / Village Restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch, as well as delectable apple dumplings. Borkholder Village is less than 2 miles from our Hotel in Nappanee.
