Fields of Home

I have stayed in many beautiful cabins and inns on my Amish travels, but every now and then I come across a place so special it simply takes my breath away. Fields of Home Lodge & Cabins in Millersburg, Ohio is such a place. With only five rooms and two small cabins, Fields of Home…

Get Busy

It’s been 15 months since I’ve written in this blog. When the pandemic first began, I decided to take a break from travel reviewing since most people weren’t traveling at that time due to state restrictions. Well. I do believe it’s time for me to get busy and get back to doing what I love:…

Be Still

The world is full of uncertainty right now. I saw firsthand the effects of fear in my own community yesterday as I ventured into the grocery store where shelves of cleaning supplies and personal necessities stood bare. Certain scriptures came to mind as I drove home, and my heart was thankful for God’s unending love…

Holmes County Trail

When my husband suggested we take a bike ride through Amish country, I actually laughed out loud. Although the thought of seeing this lovely area from a unique angle was intriguing, it had been 30+ years since I’d been on a bicycle. I eventually agreed to go with him and our youngest daughter, and I’m…

My husband and I discovered the Simple Life Cabins while driving some of the back roads in Amish Ohio. Needless to say, I immediately knew I had to stay here. πŸ™‚ The location was perfect for photographing the Amish, with a multitude of buggies traveling by the cabins. Three quaint log cabins, spaced adequately apart,…

Simple Sundays: Faith

“Faith is the light that guides you through the darkness.” “He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” β€”Matthew 17:20…

The Stone Cottage

The Stone Cottage, run by lovely hostess Martha Swartzentruber, sits by a small pond on Lower Trail Rd in Dundee, Ohio. My husband and I had the chance to spend a weekend here in August 2019, and I instantly fell in love with the location. This was our first time staying in Dundee, a lovely…

Oak Ridge Inn at Walnut Creek

The Oak Ridge Inn at Walnut Creek is a beautiful country inn consisting of a mere 8 rooms. My husband and I traveled here for our 25th anniversary in September of 2017. We chose the Presidential Suite, a surprisingly affordable room to stay in considering it’s as large as an apartment. πŸ™‚ With a living…
