& My B&B
with all new beds, pillows, bedding, fresh paint, and new floors. Great for a women’s weekend getaway!
I was drawn to the Shipshewana area for its tourist feel, but it is on a small scale, so it is not overly busy. I love the uniqueness of the town and the small-town feel; everyone is so kind and friendly. I love how the Amish work together to help each other out. It is a thriving, kind hearted community. I am inspired by the kind and gentle ways of the Amish; it makes you want to be a better person. I am inspired to help people and give back to the community. It is truly an honor to get to work alongside the Amish people in town and learning more about their way of living. I love the Amish ways of working together as a family and helping each other out, that is how the world used to be. They never complain, they just get the work done. I have an open-door policy so that my guests are comfortable to talk with me if they wish.
