10 Acres of Hospitality Surrounded by Amish Farmland

AmishView Inn & Suites

The Amish Experience is located at Plain & Fancy Farm, a 10 acre site along Route 340 (AAA Scenic Cultural Byway) completely surrounded by Amish Farmland.  Plain & Fancy Farm is also home to AmishView Inn & Suites and two restaurants.  AmishView is an award-winning hotel offering 85 rooms, all of which have an amazing view of multi-generational Amish farms, complete with an Amish one-room school in the distance.  Rooms come in different formats, perfect for both families traveling together, or couples wishing to enjoy a private getaway.  One half of the hotel is adults only, while the other half is family-friendly.  The famous “Grand King” room is a much-appreciated feature of the adults-only wing.  Every guest is treated to a next-level all-you-care-to-eat breakfast, with made-to-order eggs and omelets, and many hot and cold self-serve options as well.  AmishView has been named America’s number 1 three-star hotel by travel site Trivago, and voted the number one hotel in Lancaster County by TripAdvisor 5 years in a row. 

Smokehouse BBQ and Brews

Smokehouse BBQ and Brews is one of the restaurant options on site, offering a mouth-watering selection of low-and-slow smoked meats and delicious sides.  No reservations are required.  A large, well-stocked country store is attached to the restaurant.  Just walk in and get a table for a great meal. 

Plain & Fancy Restaurant

Plain and Fancy Restaurant is the other dining option on site, which is exclusively for groups of 25 or more people.  Reservations are required.  In 2023, we are very excited to announce Plain & Fancy Restaurant is bringing back all-you-care-to-eat, family-style dining.  Plain & Fancy is Lancaster County’s original family-style restaurant.  Individually plated meals replaced family-style dining in 2020, but in 2023, Plain & Fancy is reintroducing the much-loved “pass-the-platter” dining experience.  Group rates include tax, tip, and beverages for an all-inclusive price.  The Amish Experience provides group reservations for Plain & Fancy Restaurant.  Call 717-768-8400 extension 217 to book your group.
