Century farmhouse near Holmes County Ohio Amish country. Situated on a working farm in Wayne County, Ohio, you can sit on the shaded lawn and enjoy rural life at its best. The house features beautiful hardwood floors and old fashioned woodwork. Please note that we do not have a/c, we have ceiling fans in all bedrooms and there is a fair air flow through the house normally.
We are near many golf courses, museums, shopping and much more. Cedar Point, the Cleveland, Columbus and Akron zoos are easy day trips from our location.

This is the house that we grew up in. We have enjoyed renovating it to share with travelers.
Helen Brown (e-mail) or Lois Brown (phone) purchased this farmhouse in 1946
Our family has owned this house since the mid 1940's and farmed the land around it until the mid 1990's.
There are no words to describe how perfect Honeytown Homestead has been for us! We have now stayed there twice and have already booked our third stay. The home is absolutely beautiful and has an intangible quality that you would never find in any modern home. Lois and Helen are fantastic hostesses and we consider their home as precious as our own.
The house was awesome. If you love being away from it all, out in the country in an old huge farm house this is the place to stay on your trip to Amish Country. It seems way out of town but was about 10 minutes to everything. Smuckers, Millersburg, Berlin and all the shopping. Driving to the sites you will see the Amish living their lives. Lots of horsedrawn buggies and farmers working the fields. Lois came to meet us the night of our arrival. She couldn't have been nicer. Thanks to her and her sister Helen for sharing their childhood home with us.
We had family from 5 states gathering to enjoy my daughter's performance at The University of Akron/Wayne College in Orrville. Her American Shakespeare Center troupe was visiting from Staunton, Virginia. Honeytown Homestead was perfect for us. It was big enough for all of us to feel comfortable and it had all the amenities we needed....plus cows as neighbors! :-) The Homestead was clean and just as it was pictured....but better! We snapped many photos of the architectural extras....beautiful, tall, carved wooden door frames, gorgeous doorknobs, lovely wood on the expansive stairs and banister, etc. The stream added to the tranquil setting and the sights and sounds of horses pulling Amish buggies click clacking down the road added to the quaint setting. We were very pleased and would certainly be eager to stay at Honeytown Homestead again.
We stayed at this beautiful old home for our sister's weekend. We all had a wonderful and relaxing stay. The location in the country was perfect for us and close to the things we wanted to do. The beds were all comfortable--we all slept well. The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. The owner lives close by and she stopped to introduce herself after our arrival. She was very friendly and helpful. We hope to return here next year.
We had a wonderful 3 day stay at Honeytown Homestead. Lois and Helen were very helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was more than adequate for the three couples, and we loved the peaceful setting. It was close to all the things that we wanted to see, and it was nice to be able to do our own meals without having to eat out all the time.
This was the second time my friend and I have stayed here. It was like coming home - just so very relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed the new shades in the bedrooms and the new patio table and chairs and ate nearly every meal outside overlooking gently rolling countryside. We spent a lot of time watching the cows! Just about everything you could want in a kitchen is there, and it is nice to find a few basics, like salt, pepper, sugar, vinegar, coffee, etc in the cupboard. Lots of maps and other visitor info is waiting in a rack. Lois or Helen will quickly respond if there are questions or problems. The folks at the library and stores in Fredericksburg were very friendly and we enjoyed shopping there - though the best general grocery is in Millersburg. Great place to spread out, feel at home and relax.
