                                                              The property was exactly what we expected and what we needed.

                                                              Michael H.

                                                              This site is a perfect place for several families to meet at a halfway point. We had 6 adults, 4 children under the age of 7 and 3 dogs. There was plenty of room to play and the kids had a blast. There were plenty of bedrooms for all of us. The mood was enhanced with the cows mooing and the cats wanting some attention. Of course, the countryside was beautiful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our trips to shop and see the Amish families as they travelled the community.

                                                              Fourth time, just as magical as the first three!

                                                              My wife and I just completed our fourth visit to Honeytown Homestead, and if that doesn't say enough, I don't know what could. Helen is an ideal host. The house is huge and warm. The property is massive, with plenty of room for our dog to run. The quiet, the friendly locals, the quaint country store in Apple Creek: all of these things make every trip back here better and better. Thanks for another great stay!

                                                              So Relaxing - So Inviting!

                                                              This is a wonderful old house with the classic styling of its era, and our family thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing Thanksgiving away from the city. A step back in time with still all the modern comforts of home. Clean, well-kept. Nicely equipped kitchen. We did tote in our drinking water because of the well water, but everything else was “just right.” The kids truly loved watching and “talking with” all the cats and cows (from a distance of course).

                                                              The owners were great to deal with throughout the process and it was great meeting Helen. Thank You!

                                                              Beautiful setting but the house and furniture were dated. Some areas of the house were clean and others were a little dirty. Bedrooms were dusty.

                                                              Comfortable old farmhouse

                                                              We had a great time in Ohio's Amish country, and the Honeytown Homestead was a perfect place for our family. We were able to easily get back and forth to activities at the College of Wooster where my son is a student, and also enjoy the lovely rolling hills of the country. Waking up to the (somewhat loud!) sounds of the cows and the clip clop of the horse drawn carriages passing by was a new and fun experience for us. And my son who got the room with the sitting area was especially happy. He now wants to upgrade his space at home! Thanks to our host Helen for a welcoming and relaxing weekend.

                                                              Big space to play and chill

                                                              We enjoy but couldn't make loud noises, almost got kicked out by police and owner. If you are going for party don't go.
