Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast we recommend to our guests, local attractions and unique Amish home industries to visit. Available in almost every brochure rack and local buinesses is the Holmes County Map & Visitors' Guide, a free publication of the holmes County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau. This comprehensive map and guide, complete with GPS coordinates and business descriptions, offers valuable information about goods, services, and attractions in the area and will prove most valuable in helping you find local points of interest.
This region is the largest community of Amish anywhere in the world. They are doubling in size every twenty to
twenty-two years, with only about 10% farming anymore. Vocations today include many facets of the woodworking industry, manufacturing, carriage making, food production, and tourism, and more. Come visit Amish Country where you will experience a "Patchwork" of interesting people and businesses.
A map we highly recommend is the very detailed and comprehensive Amish Highways and Byways Map featuring well-defined towns and state roads, county roads, and township roads in the region we call Ohio's Amish Country. We favor this map because it has an index of all of the road names and numbers. This Highways and Byways map not only includes all of Holmes County, but also portions of adjoining counties; Wayne, Stark, Tuscarawas, Coshocton, Knox, and Ashland Counties, where other communities of Amish reside. Additional features of the Amish Highways and Byways Map include tourism information and an extensive lodging directory listing. At a cost of $3.95, this map is "Worth it's weight in gold"! Consider how our roads wind around hills and corners, bringing you to places you've never seen before or leading you to lanes that you don't know if it's a road or not!
So, I say, "Go ahead, explore and get lost in Amish Country!" With this map you'll find your way back to wherever you want to be! This map may be purchased at local businesses such as The Barn Inn or you may purchase on line.
