As the number of coronavirus cases steadily declines, people are starting to travel again. It’s exciting to know Lancaster County tourism continues to emerge from COVID-19 and visitors from surrounding counties and states are once again discovering the beauty of Amish Country.
People are ready to shed their cabin fever: Families coming to Lancaster for the Amish experience or to see shows at American Music Theater or Sight & Sound, couples looking for a romantic getaway, outdoor enthusiasts exploring nearby hiking and biking trails, and so many others.
Some folks are so ready to venture away from home that they’ve created a new way to travel: Bikepacking. It’s a mix between camping, biking, and backpacking, with a sub-niche called “credit card bikepacking” for those who carry their belongings but, instead of roughing it at a campsite, they stay in hotels and eat at restaurants.
We welcome them all! Even better, the safety precautions we’ve taken — and continue to take — to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 could make an overnight stay at AmishView Inn even safer than that backyard barbecue your neighborhood planned.
It’s OK to Take that Roadtrip
While our award-winning hotel staff and those at other local venues follow CDC recommendations and government guidelines to ensure the safety of guests, we feel confident that Lancaster County is the ideal post-quarantine destination. There’s a reason why we’re ranked the best hotel in Lancaster County by TripAdvisor. Actually, there are many reasons.
Here are just some of the many precautions our hotel is taking to make sure our guests enjoy an affordable boutique-inn experience, confident that their overnight stay in Amish Country is just as safe, if not more, than a backyard barbecue.
- Staff undergoes a comprehensive training program that includes detailed information about the coronavirus and how to control its spread. Our entire staff is required to participate in this two-hour training program before returning to work
- Masks are always worn by staff. You’ll still get the exceptional customer service that keeps repeat guests coming back to us each year, but you’ll have to look at the smiles in our eyes for now.
- Guests are required to wear masks (except when seated to eat in our Great Room)
- Staff and guests are maintaining safe social distances, 6 feet between you and other guests/staff.
- We remind guests to frequently wash hands; staff is required to do so.
- Hand sanitizer and gloves are available throughout the hotel for any guests who wish to use them.
Enjoy a Country Breakfast
Nothing says “spoil me” better than a delicious, hot breakfast to start the day.
AmishView Inn and Suites has nearly 1,500 “excellent” traveler ratings onTripAdvisor.com and our amazingly delicious country breakfast buffet is often one of the reasons hotel guests love to stay at our 3-diamond hotel in Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania.
