Amish Country Bed and Breakfast Poised for Christmas Cookie Tour of Inns

The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast, located in the Heart of Amish Country, is decorated for the holiday season; dressed up and poised for the 6th Annual Christmas Cookie Tour of Inns taking place Sunday and Monday, December 8 and 9, 2013.

Teacup Gingerbread House

Participating in this year's gingerbread-themed event will be 12 Inns including The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast, The Berlin Grande Hotel, Berlin Hotel and Suites, Carlisle Inn Sugarcreek, Carlisle Inn Walnut Creek, Comfort Suites Berlin, Ferngully Creek, The Grapevine House Bed and Breakfast, Guggisberg Swiss Inn, Hannah's House Retreat, The Wallhouse Hotel, and Zinck's Main Street Lodging.

Musicians at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast

Plan now to be inspired and celebrate the holiday season during an afternoon of progressive cookie tasting and touring through the twelve festively decorated inns, and help raise money to be given away to deserving local charities. Exquisite gingerbread houses built by Dr. John Learner will be featured this year along with a gingerbread house contest by Akron University culinary students and faculty.  Tour guests will receive one specialty cookie at each inn, as well as other snacks along the way. 

Innkeepers invite you to their properties from 12:30 pm. - 6:00 pm. You will begin your self-paced tour at any inn of your choice. To best utilize your time, we recommend that you take time to plan your route. Your ticket will be punched at the door of each inn, please do not lose your ticket, as lost tickets cannot be replaced.  A stop at Hannah's House B and B includes a horse-drawn wagon shuttle to the inn.  Hot chocolate will be available at that stop.

Beautiful Table Setting

Tickets are date specific. Sunday tickets and two day passes are sold out; however, Monday tickets are still available.  Click here to purchase your Monday ticket!

The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast always features fine table settings and dining ideas.
