Since 2007, the Cookie Tour has given all of its net proceeds to local charities, such as the Holmes County Education Foundation and LifeCare Hospice. Tickets are $35 for a single day, or $50 for a two-day pass, and went on sale on the Cookie Tour website on October 3rd. Visitors are free to travel to as many inns as they choose during their tour, from 1pm-7pm on Saturday and 1pm-6pm on Sunday. Each inn will have a different cookie, and the recipes for those cookies will go into the Cookie Tour Cookbook, which every guest will receive along with their tickets.
This tour is a chance for these local inns to decorate, dress up, and show off the very best they have to offer. The Amish Country Lodging Council, operating under the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce for this event, is a network dedicated to excellence in hospitality. If you plan to be in the area in December, this event is a must-see! Tickets typically sell out within the first week or two of sales, so it is recommended that you purchase them as soon as possible. As one of the featured inns, The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast looks forward to hosting and greeting guests warmly as we enter the winter Holiday season!
