This property was very unique in that it was run by Amish people. It was beautifully decorated with scenes from Amish life, Amish art, etc. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were so nice. Our room was much larger than a typical hotel room and we enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit outside. It was an excellent stay with all the amenities we needed to be comfortable. My only complaint was that the pillows were too thick.

Second stay at this beautiful, quiet place. Will return!

pERFECT STAY AND THE PROPERTY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS, CLEAN STAFF WONDERFUL

Very friendly staff. The cleanest hotel I’ve ever stayed at.

We stayed here for 8 nights and super impressed. Its the cleanest hotel I have seen and we stayed at many 4-5 star hotels and this one is on top of their game keeping guests happy. Their breakfast is very good serve eggs, sausage, hash browns, donuts, bagels, breads, yogurt, many fruits, cereals, and all kinds of juices and coffee. For the price you cant get better. The rooms have lots of space and beds are super comfortable and pillows. They clean daily rooms. The pool and Jacuzzi are also nice which stay open until 10pm and fire pit at night. If it was close to the beach it would be rated a 5 star I'm sure but its only maybe 8 miles to drive to beach which is worth it since your not paying hotel fees, parking is free and breakfast. Its worth it completely! If you go to beach go early and best spot is beach access #5 at Siesta Key.

This is the cleanest hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Loved the settle colors they choose for furniture and walls, loved Amish art and photos. Breakfast was good, pool and hot tub as well. Big rooms (we had one with kitchenette, had utensils and pots, pans, dishes and cups. Only 2 things that were not there were cutting board and knife). Full size refrigerator was nice as well. They do supply full size rollaway bed for $10 per night (current charge) and that bed is also very comfortable. I loved to see Amish community, it definitely made me want to wear more dresses :) I would definitely stay there again!

Very very clean and kind people, could have better breakfast and hot tub was not hot with no temperature control

Very clean place and friendly staff, conveniently located by Der Dutchman restaurant and bakery. Breakfasts were delicious as well!

Very clean and well run. I wold stay there again and will recommend it to family.

sue at the front desk was great, very helpful. the shower was fiberglass surround and the bottom portion was cracked and probably not very clean. Also their attempt to conserve water (which is a great idea) was overboard on the conservative side. It was almost impossible to rinse out the shampoo, had to spent extra time under the water to rinse out.

Beds were a little hard, a lot of light in room at night. EXCELLENT Donuts for breakfast best I've ever had and VERY clean place!

Very clean . Friendly staff . Easy check in and check out . Good breakfast .

Lovely, clean property with super nice staff. Would definitely stay there again.
