Well, we're living here in Allentown....well not really, we are really in Bethlehem, a small, pretty town 4 miles away that Billy Joel did not write a song about. The town nearly died too when the Bethlehem Steel Company went belly up. The company even owned the Bethlehem historic hotel we are staying in. It closed for 2 years until a local consortium revived it. Would you believe, the next town is called Nazareth so ...
... so there must be something in their simplicity that leans towards "capitalism". None the less, very polite people and one amish stall holder welcomed her photo being taken (hope she didn't expect a tip). Nah! Life is simple! Tomorrow will explore the amish farms and lifestyle so should be very interesting. John is wondering if they have a golf course or a wine shop doing business?? John is also looking forward to Intercourse (more ...
Yesterday we left our RV at the KOA and drove 90 miles to Atlantic City for one night. We got a comp room because we are Total Rewards Members and we left there with more money than we brought so it was a fun trip. Ahhh, large beds and a regular shower.
... tour of the city. First stop was the Liberty Bell center. Here the Liberty bell is housed. I was lucky here and didn't have to line up for very long to get inside. Inside there is lots of information about the symbolism of the bell and how it has been used over the years by different groups as a symbol for their cause. There is also a lot of information about the crack in the bell and the different attempts to repair it. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews AmishView Inn & Suites Bird in Hand
We just returned from 2 nites at the Amish View Inn & Suites in Lancaster County PA. It was quite nice - very new, clean & nicely decorated- not the usual horrid 70's motif that you usually see in PA. Our room was clean, nice dk. wood furniture (kinda crowded the room). Price was higher than the other places but this place offers a hot breakfast every morning. Indoor pool (small)the staff was ok- had a little dispute over why we were charged for a 3 year old meal when the restaurant said under age 4 - he ate for free but we pre paid in our meal plan. ??I still feel we were over charged and I will follow up later. Front desk staffers had a fake smile and a rehersed "NO" in monotone answer when I asked for discount coupons for Dutch Wonderland. Oh well- Next time I'll book ahead and try the Willows. This place was not giving me the "warm Fuzzys" and it felt like they catered to the "older crowd with no kids"
Second Time is a Charm
We just returned from our week long vacation June 4-11, 2005 at the Amish View Inn and Suites. We really loved it! Stayed here during Thanksgiving last year for 4 days, but it was not long enough. The rooms are gorgeous and the view from our room was absolutely stunning. We enjoyed the breakfast every day. The staff was very friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel.
In two weeks, my children and I traveled through 5 states and stayed at 6 different hotels, some of which were well-known hotel chains. The quaint Amish View Inn & Suites was by far the most impressive. I was impressed from the moment we walked into the lobby which resembled a country living room. The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. I completely fell in love with the room - the furniture, decor, and the amenities (Bath & Body Works soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotions). We were able to take advantage of their special winter mid-week package which was my initial draw to the inn, but upon arriving, I felt I was in a luxury hotel and should have been paying way more. They were also able to provide excellent discounts with surrounding restaurants and stores. We checked in during the evening, so we weren't able to fully appreciate what we were about to awaken to in the morning. The view out of our window was simply breathtaking! It was a wide open field with farms in the horizon, clear sky, and flocks of birds flying. All the other services combined to make our stay pleasurable. The indoor pool, arcade, fitness, and laundry rooms were in close vicinity of each other so I was able to supervise my children while doing laundry. The breakfast was again far superior to the other hotels- made-to-order omelettes, baked oatmeal, array of meats, pastries, fruits, cereals, and beverages. Complimentary cookies were also available as well as movies in the lobby. We felt right at home. I usually don't take photos of hotels, but I definitely took a few shots during our stay there. We definitely want to return to Lancaster and Amish View Inn & Suites will definitely be where we'll be staying!
Amish View Inn and Suites
Just returned and had to write while its still fresh in my mind...had a great time here and staff was super friendly..so much so that woman at front desk sat in lobby with me on New Years Eve and talked!!!! Rooms were very nice, clean, furnished with all the modern necessities, iron, micro, fridge, hairdryer...a really nice place and will return here again next year.
We were blessed with a HUGE room, in a new hotel for our recent stay at AmishView Inn and Suites. Fireplace in the room was nice and romantic. The room was gorgeous and very spacious, and was met with lots of oohs and aahs.
...two things marred our recent stay at the Amish View (Nov. 2004):
Wonderful place to stay and relax
A church group of 28 (mostly seniors) stayed two nights (Oct 5 & 6).
Everyone enjoyed their stay here. I (the tour leader) had no complaints from anyone. Indeed, to many, this hotel was the highlight of the church group tour.
A nice upscale family friendly place
visited early summer and will be staying again in december. new hotel w/nice size rooms that have new furniture & comfortable beds. indoor pool-very clean. breakfast, which is included, is serve yourself & very pleasant.
stay with a package plan-the tax is included & is a good deal considering the meals are for millers & plain & fancy-which they can make reservations for.
we have been visiting a couple times a year-early summer & december for the christmas festivities(hershey's christmas candylane is great for young kids-pay one price or get tickets for the kids going on rides, adults are free!!)and amishview has become our favorite place. many hotels are dated or very much big box economy motels-this is a welcome change of pace.
