Breakfast served Daily at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast

We here at the Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast are known for our morning  orientations and discussions about the culture and unique people here - the Amish and the Mennonites. Every morning after breakfast, we innkeepers, Paul and Loretta Coblentz, distribute our listing of preferred places to visit and give a short orientation about the area that highlights some of the lesser-known locations in Amish Country, as well as providing meaningful insights into the Amish way of life. A sampling of a few of the questions and topics we address are:

   What is the difference between Amish and Mennonite?
   Do you know a man is married because he has a beard?
Amish boys walking home from church
   Why do the Amish men not have mustaches?
   How do the Amish resolve conflict?
   What about cell phone use?
   How many sects of Amish are in the area?
   Can one marry someone from another sect?
   Can non-Amish people join the Amish?
   Why can one person use things and another not?
   Do the Amish pay taxes?
   Do the Amish utilize modern medical services?
   Do the Amish still shun?
   What about the use of solar?
   What language do they speak?
   How far do they go in school?
   Can someone who is Amish become a doctor or lawyer, etc?
   Do they have a central bishop over all their people?
   How do they select their ministers?
   Are marriages arranged?
   What about church traditions?
   What about tobacco use or wine consumption?
   Do the Amish vote?

There are many more subjects that could be discussed.  All of the above topics are gateways and often lead to extensive discussion.  Each morning, only one or a few can be touched upon. Topic after topic and story after story simply lead into more stories.  We recommend visiting the Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center in Berlin for an informative European history of our people.

You can be assured that your loved ones will enjoy a special getaway here at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast, and certainly will become more informed.
