My husband and I had the priviledge and pleasure to spend two different stays with Loretta and Paul in this beautiful establishment. The rooms we stayed in were very different but both lovely. We stayed in the Blue Harvest Moon a slightly smaller but perfect first floor room and the Rose Garden Room on the second floor that was larger and with a stand alone shower. Loretta has soooo very much knowledge about the area and is more than willing to share that and her recipe for the wonderful Apple Walnut Cake. Breakfast is buffet style so you can pick and choose and believe me you have more than enough to choose from. Loretta is a quilter and is working on a beautiful masterpiece for Christmas. If you stay here you will not regret it. Oh yes and it is so very quiet!!

Our first visit to the Barn Inn and we enjoyed it very much! Great location, you truly feel like you are in the country. Quiet and relaxing. Enjoyed walking the grounds and crossing the river and going and sitting in the gazebo. Room was cozy and very clean. The Inn itself is wonderful. Paul and Loretta made us feel right at home. Breakfast was delicious and Loretta's talk was very imformative. We hope to be back in the near future and stay a couple of days, not just one! Would highly recommend!

My Boyfriend and I stayed one night at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast what a wonderful place. Loretta and Paul made us feel right at home. Their hospitality was exceptional. They let us choose our room "The Garden" so breath taking. Thanks Paul for the late night coffee it was definitely the best and thank you Loretta for the family style dining Easter breakfast and mailing my Chi flat iron to me that I had forgotten. We have already begun to plan our next stay with you and Paul. Thanks for everything.
5 on April 04, 2014
We wanted to share that we truly enjoyed our stay this week. The hospitality was outstanding, food incredible, rooms immaculate. We will be back to stay with Loretta and Paul on our next trip to Amish country. David & Sherry, MI

My family and I recently took a weekend trip to Amish Country and I can't tell you how much we enjoyed staying at The Barn Inn. If you stay in the farmhouse, be sure to read about the history of the property... very interesting how it all started! The owners are very kind and such wonderful hosts. You'll feel relaxed and right at home the minute you get there. Breakfast is at 8:30am and it's delicious so make sure you don't miss out. :)
5 on October 20, 2013
We just spent a week at The Barn Inn. Amazing experience. Paul and Loretta are so knowledgable about the area and the Amish population. Breakfast was wonderful every morning. The room was clean and very comfortable. We would highly recommend staying at The Barn Inn. We will be returning Can't wait.
5 on September 22, 2013
This was our first stay in a Bed and Breakfast and the bar has been set very high for all others! Beautiful furnishings, very clean, delicious food for breakfast and always snacks, baked goods and drinks available at no charge. The best part was Loretta and Paul's information and recommendations at breakfast. There are so many places to see in a short time so the recommendations were very helpful. It is obvious why they have won so many awards.
5 on September 08, 2013
This bed and breakfast was clean, had friendly innkeepers, and the breakfast each morning was delicious. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful atmosphere to get away for a short or long vacation, this is the place you want to pick. The Barn Inn is located right outside of Berlin and Millersburg (in the middle) and is convenient to all the area attractions. It is on a country road that allows you to see true Amish country. Loretta and Paul are great at what they have been doing for years and made our stay exceptionally comfortable. My husband and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary here and stayed in the Country Charm room. This room was very nice and had a large 2 person jacuzzi tub. If you want to relax there is a large back yard and furniture on your porch to do so. I highly recommend going to the Barn Inn bed and breakfast. You will not be disappointed. One last tip- don't miss breakfast. The innkeepers are very good cooks and you will be fed well. After breakfast each day Loretta gives you info about the area and things to do.

Two old time friends left our hubbies behind and went for a few days girlfriend time, it was great. Loretta was so knowledgeable and helpful. Our few days were outstanding. Had a great time. Bummed we did not plan long enough ahead to get a room there this year.
5 on August 05, 2013
WE STAYED 5 DAYS AND WERE PLEASED WITH EVERYTHING! PAUL AND LORETTA WERE GREAT HOSTS AND LORETTA'S MORNING TALKS WERE WORTH THE PRICE OF THE STAY .FOOD WAS GREAT AND WE WERE IMPRESSED WITH THE NUMBER OF FOLKS THAT WERE BACK FOR A REPEAT STAY.
5 on August 05, 2013
We stayed at The Barn Inn which was lovely! The B&B has wonderful, antiqu furnishings There are adorable, well placed knicknacks every where. The bed was so comfortable! Loretta spent time talking with us and really made us feel at home. Her talk on where to go was so helpful. We ended up going to a place she recommended and bought a tv stand that is beautifully made. It was a terrific stay, nd I would recommend this B&B to any one who wants a clean, lovely, well maintained, place to stay.
5 on July 31, 2013
We researched quite a few B&Bs before deciding on the Barn Inn. My only regret was that it wasn't available for both of the nights we stay in the area. First of all Loretta is the ultimate hostess (never met Paul!). You will find so many of her touches throughout the Inn that others just don't think about. The room was much larger than expected and the comfort was simply splendid. The breakfast served was the best meal we had but what made the breakfast and entire stay a one of a kind B&B was the talk Loretta gave about the area complete with a three page list of things to do (many of which you won't find with any casual search). We used her suggestions and it significantly upgraded the quality of our trip. Can't recommend highly enough. Oh, and the price of the room we stay in was right in line, if not better than many other Inns.
5 on July 30, 2013
Pleasent, quite surroundings, clean and confortable, biggest surprise was our knowledgabe host, she gave alot of local information not the tourist trap stuff. We enjoyed our time and will be back.
4.8 on July 29, 2013
- Each room's decor was different and homey. - Bathrobes and whirlpool bath were added luxuries. - Breakfast was phenomenal. - List of places to see in the area was extremely useful.
5 on July 27, 2013
We recently stayed at The Barn Inn and it was by far the best B&B we've ever stayed at. In fact, we feel in many ways our experiences at future B&Bs will always be compared to this one. The room itself was very nice, spotless and comfortable. The food was incredible - each morning we were provided with a fantastic variety of different options: yummy breads, locally-made meats, amazing main dishes. But what really makes this B&B experience unique are owners Paul and Loretta. Loretta is so knowledgeable about the area and the Amish/Mennonite communities that your stay will be a learning experience in Amish culture and history as much as it will be relaxing and rejuvenating. Not to mention that she is an amazing cook. We plan to return to Ohio Amish country in future years and will always plan to stay at The Barn Inn from now on. In an area where B&Bs are plenty, this place definitely tops them all.
5 on July 23, 2013
The rooms are great. Loretta and Paul are such nice people. We have been to the Barn Inn several times and it never disappoints!
5 on July 22, 2013
A great place to spend our 55 th wedding anniversity
5 on July 21, 2013
We had a great time at the Inn. Just like home. Loretta and Paul were very helpful in accomadating my husband (who is in a wheelchair) with close parking,a bigger room and table seating at breakfast. Everything was more then nice. We hope to return again Thanks !!!!
3.2 on July 20, 2013
We loved the history behind The Barn Inn and how it is just a short drive from everything but secluded enough to make it a good choice. The area is beautiful. Our room was a little small but better than staying in a hotel. We would suggest adding black out blinds on the windows to help darken the room at night. We enjoyed the printed information on restaurants and activities but would have preferred the innkeeper asking if anyone had any questions about the Amish culture instead of her giving what seemed like a sales pitch to encourage guests to buy certain products.
5 on July 17, 2013
This was a women's trip from our church in Southern WV. Not only did we enjoy our stay in the most gorgeous, well furnished and comfortable rooms but the fellowship with the owners Paul and Loretta was the most memorable moments of my life. She led sent us on a visit that was so touching and was definitely the highlight of our trip! A MUST VISIT!!!
4.8 on July 15, 2013
We stayed at the Barn Inn recently for the second time. This B&B gives comfortable Accomodations in the middle beautiful Amish country. Each room has a private entrance from a beautiful balcony and beautifully decorated rooms. Following a great breakfast, Loretta gives information about places to see in the area. Many are off the tourist path and include visits to Amish homes where you can purchase handmade items like baskets, rugs, etc. It is a very peaceful place with first class service.
5 on July 14, 2013
We've started looking for bed and breakfasts to stay in when we are traveling and this is definitely high on our list. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch after dark watching the fireflies and sharing a bottle of wine. The breakfast was served family style and it was nice to chat with the other couples who were staying there. Loretta gave a very informative chat on the things to do in the area. It is a little out of the way, but our GPS got us right there with no problems. We enjoyed the quiet and serenity of the country atmosphere.
5 on July 09, 2013
My wife and I stayed at the Red Barn Inn and had a wonderful experience. Loretta greeted us warmly and gave great orientation to the Inn. The room was beautiful and spotless with everything we could possibly need. She recommended a number of restaurants and the one we chose was superb. On Sunday morning we were served a delicious breakfast with a number of different hot and cold options. Near the end of the breakfast Loretta and Paul gave a brief but informative history of the area and the people. We will definitely be back to the Red Barn Inn.
4.2 on July 06, 2013
only stayed overnight..stay should be atleast 2 nights to enjoy the atmosphere of the lovely inn and surrounding tourism. very nice stay.
5 on July 04, 2013
We stayed at The Barn seven years ago and always vowed to return. Our memories did not fail us! Our stay in July 2013 was every bit as wonderful as it was when we first visited. If you want to add to your understanding of the Amish culture, know how to plan your time in Holmes County, while enjoying a first class Bed and Breakfast experience, you can do no better then The Barn. We will be back some day!

Very peaceful and quite.loved the countryside.the people were very nice.
5 on June 28, 2013
What an excellent place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! The Barn Inn is elegant, beautiful, peaceful, quiet and close to all of the interesting places to go in Amish country of Holmes County. Our host and hostess were wonderful, especially the morning tidbits from Loretta about Amish background and her list of things to see and places to go that aren't readily known in published literature. Don't hesitate to stay here, it is the greatest B&B we've stayed in. And the breakfast was hearty and excellent!
5 on June 25, 2013
Nice quiet location with very knowledgeable innkeepers of the area. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Enjoyed our stay and we'll definitely stay there again!
5 on June 23, 2013
The Barn Inn B & B was an absolute delight! I went there not so much for the Amish country, but to find a quiet, relaxing place to rest, which I found. Paul and Loretta are so friendly and welcoming. The whole place exudes a place of warmth, beauty and peacefulness. Loretta's presentation on things to do and see in the local area is an added bonus to staying at the Barn Inn. Their breakfasts are sumptuous, something to look forward to every morning. I dont think ive ever had a nicer room anywhere! I felt very pampered and spoiled! Whenever I come back to Amish country, this is where I'll stay! Thank you!
5 on June 16, 2013
The room was very welcoming and we were able to relax easily. My husband settled into the recliner, just like home, with the remote control and found channels we do not receive at home. We walked around the grounds, nestled in a hollow, with the many birds singing happily. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very tasteful and interesting to meet other guests. We would definitely consider visiting The Barn Inn B & B, again!
4.4 on June 14, 2013
Very happy with our stay at the barn inn, it was quiet, clean, more food than we could eat. Loretta is a huge supporter of the amish coummity. She has very good recomendations for where to visit, and sites to see. Will return again!

A very pleasant,extremly clean, beautifully decorated inn. A quiet, relaxing atmosphere, delicious breakfast.
5 on June 11, 2013
This was the first time we ever stayed at a B&B. We were more than happy with everything. The room was absolutely beautiful. The atmosphere was so peaceful. The breakfasts were wonderful and Loretta and Paul would give us information on local attractions and some Amish history right after breakfast. Being new to the area, we found that most helpful. We would recommend the Barn Inn to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway. Thanks so much to Loretta and Paul for their warm hospitality.
5 on June 05, 2013
A nice peaceful stay at the Barn Inn!!
5 on June 02, 2013
A wonderfully charming Bed and Breakfast, The Barn Inn offers hospitality like no other. The live-in owners make it their mission to ensure each guest feels at home by providing ameneties not found at any other place. My wife and I were pleased to find an amazing room with a luxurious hot tub, heavenly bath robes, and one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. Breakfast was a great time giving the opportunity to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal and to socialize with the other guests. Close to local tourist attractions, the convenient location allowed us to spend our time enjoying the area instead of getting to it. A definite must for anyone visiting the Amish Country!
5 on June 01, 2013
The Barn Inn for us initially was a good place from which to explore the sights and stores in the surrounding Amish country. In returning for a 6th time this past May, the Barn Inn has become for us a place where we can relax, enjoy the hospitality of Loretta and Paul, relish the home cooked breakfasts (with commentary by Loretta) and to take pleasure in any of the extraordinarily appointed rooms, including the grand guest room. We highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
5 on May 31, 2013
We decided on a spur of the moment getaway and were able to book a room online. We had a very pleasant stay, beautiful room, friendly people and a very good breakfast.
4.6 on May 23, 2013
If you are seeking a quiet, restful base for Amish country exploration, The Barn Inn B&B is a top pick! This quaint Inn and adjacent Fred Gherig House offer competent, friendly service in a great location along a country lane, just moments from Millersburg and Berlin. Owners offer inside info into the lifestyle and beliefs of nine regional Amish groups, and tips for visiting off the beaten track. Kids loved the resident goat and Alpaca! Mom loved the Gherig house's privacy and space for everyone to retreat at the end of a long day.
4.8 on May 22, 2013
Great service, quite atmosphere, relaxing all around. Paul, Loretta and staff were wonderful hosts. Was a quite weekend retreat for my husband and me. Would recommend The Barn Inn to anyone looking for a nice and helpful place to stay while in Amish Ohio.
4.8 on May 20, 2013
Peaceful, roomy, cozy, and quiet. The rooms were immaculate and everythhing was thought of beforehand so we did not need any room service. The breakfast was delicious and the sharing time afterwards was fun.
5 on May 16, 2013
Wonderful stay-Great service-Great Food-Beautiful well kept room. Highly recommend!!!
5 on May 14, 2013
This is a wonderful B&B. The innkeepers provide a wealth of info on the surrounding area and a breakfast that is out of this world. The king-size bed was so comfortable and the room so clean and pretty. Although several other couples were staying there at the same time we did, it was very quiet. Definitely the best experience we've had with a B&B. After a couple of less than good experiences with B&Bs, I'm glad we decided to try once more with this one.
5 on May 14, 2013
We were extremely pleased with our stay at the Barn Inn. We decided to go there for our 1 year anniversary, and could not have been happier with our decision. As soon as we walked in the door Paul and Loretta made us feel so welcome and comfortable. The atmosphere was refreshing and the rooms were spotless! We were also treated to a delicious home-made breakfast! We will definately go back!
5 on May 13, 2013
We had a wonderful time and plan on visiting again. The room and the staff were fantastic. A beautiful, charming place in the country. Loretta and Paul made everyone feel welcomed and have a incredible Inn. Please keep up the good work!
5 on May 08, 2013
This was our first stay but certainly not our last! Our son recommended The Barn Inn B& B after he and his wife celebrated their anniversary there and then gave us a gift certificate as a Christmas gift. We really enjoyed out stay and would like to return in the fall. Our hosts were full of knowledge about the area and eager to share. We would highly recommend this B & B!.
5 on May 07, 2013
This was much more than what we exspected . Very nice , very quiet , very friendly host . We like the rustic look . Will stay there again , have recogmended it to our family already .
5 on May 06, 2013
The greatest part of our stay was the sharing of Loretta with all of us at the breakfast table. Her knowledge and love of her guests was also outstanding. God's blessings on their current Inn and on their new adventures.
5 on May 05, 2013
My new husband and I stayed at The Barn Inn in late April 2013 for our honeymoon. We could not have been more pleased! Loretta was incredibly warm and welcoming, the B&B was charming and peaceful, and the breakfast was delicious. We highly recommend staying here and we would definitely do it again ourselves.

This hostess & host will fulfill your every wish.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Barn Inn and plan to do it again.
5 on April 23, 2013
The innkeepers are friendly and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Loretta is a great cook and the breakfasts are wonderful. She and her husband are very knowledgeable about the Amish and the surrounding area. They always have great places to visit or if you are looking for something in particular, they know the places to go. We have stayed there numerous times and will do so again.
4.8 on April 22, 2013
This was our first visit to The barn Inn. WE loved everything about it. WE especially liked the discussioin at breakfast (ymummy) by the owner, Loretta, about the area, points of interest, history, culture of the Amish. she handed ourt a 3 page list of interesting places to visit. We will have to return more than once to cover all of those places. And, we shall!!
5 on April 18, 2013
we stayed here for our honeymoon and found everything so comforting, relaxing and worth the stay. we will be returning on our anniversary.
5 on April 16, 2013
This was my third visit to The Barn Inn in three years. My sister and I love visiting Amish Country and would not stay anywhere else! Loretta and Paul are such gracious hosts. You can tell they love what they do and are very knowledgeable about the Amish background, places to go, and out of the way things to do.. The Inn is beautiful and very clean. Every single room that we have stayed in always looks brand new like it has never been used. If you are going to visit Holmes County, you must stay at the Barn Inn!
5 on April 15, 2013
Paul & Loretta have a beautiful inn. Set in the rolling countryside of Holmes County, the inn is surrounded by wonderful scenery. Paul & Loretta are very welcoming and are great to talk to. They give you inside recommendations on places to go while you are visiting the area. The rooms were clean and peaceful. The breakfast was very tasty, especially the baked oatmeal. We would definitely come back again.
5 on April 15, 2013
Interesting barn structure converted to an Inn. The Inn was warm, cozy and had an open feel. Every aspect of the Inn was done to perfection. The Barn Inn name name, logo was found on the bar soaps, pillowcases, wine glasses, etc. Food was great - snacks, coffee, tea, etc. available at night. Breakfast in the morning was superb. Owners provided an informative talk in the morning about the Amish and the area. They provided a list of attractions with anecdotes and personal stories. Site includes some farm animals, back area with path leading to wooded picnic area. A winner and superb place to stay for R & R.
4.6 on April 12, 2013
The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast was wonderful. The ambiance was warm and friendly. The treats left out at night were delicious as were the breakfasts. The hosts were wonderful - they have a nice highlight every morning over breakfast about the area. We have been to Amish country many times before but because of the Inn Keepers, Paul and Loretta, we were able to experience a more heartfelt and intimate visit this time. It made our 35th Wedding Anniversary weekend all the more special. We will be back!!!
4.8 on April 12, 2013
We brought our friends here to experience their first B&B experience. None of us were disappointed. Loretta was very helpful with ideas of things in the area off the beaten path to do. Our breakfast was superb as usual. The beautiful weather when we were there allowed us to relax on the balcony and have a good time of fellowship.
5 on April 12, 2013
Paul and Loretta are the perfect B&B hosts! They have done a great job keeping the Amish atmosphere and experience for their guests. This was our first bed and breakfast stay and it was all that I hoped it would be.
4.4 on March 28, 2013
We were blessed to be able to spend a wonderful evening at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. The owners were wonderful people. The accomodations were absolutely beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and the knowledge that Loretta shared of Amish and Mennonite culture was so informative. I will highly recommend it to anyone looking to take a step back in time with the modern amenities. Thank you Paul and Loretta! Dorrie and Camdyn M.

Our first B&B experience and it was more than we could have ever wanted or expected! Paul & Loretta are excellent hosts! We would definitely do it again. We can only imagine how much more beautiful it would be in Spring bloom or in full Fall splendor! ~ Don & Marsha Mowery

As first time visitors to the Barn Inn, we were extremely impressed. We have stayed in B & Bs around Ohio and would rate this one at the top of our list. The owners were great, the room and breakfast were without equal. We will be returning for sure. Fred & Terri , Marion , Ohio
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. It gives us great pleasure to show gracious hospitality to wonderful people like the two of you and many others who frequent The Barn Inn.

4.6 on January 25, 2013
Arrived late and received a warm welcoming by Loretta the owner. She showed us around the inn and made us feel very welcome. Awoke in the morning to the smell of breakfast which was great. After breakfast Lorreta provided information for interesting places to see and places to eat. She gave an interesting talk on what being Amish was like. The inn is located in a beatifully secluded area and backs up to a small wooded area. The inside is full of quilts and antiques. The entire experience was great. Not everyone can say they have slept in a barn!
4.6 on January 17, 2013
Would use all the superlatives you can think of. Great location, very clean/comfortable, cozy, modern amenities, delicious (above ordinary) breakfast, and very congenial proprietors. The Barn Inn was recommended to us, and we will be doing the same for others as well as thinking of it for our own future visit. You won't be disappointed.
5 on December 30, 2012
I wish I could visit The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast more often. My hubby and I have stayed there two times and have had the most wonderful experiences there. So peaceful and friendly. Paul and Loretta are outstanding host and the food is absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this place to anybody wishing for a different experience aside from your normal stays in a hotel. My very best wishes to Loretta and Paul for the New Year and hope to see you both in 2013. God Bless!
5 on December 29, 2012
We enjoyed our stay at the Barn Inn. The service was fantastic. This was our first stay at a B&B and you can be sure it will not be the last!

The Barn Inn was very clean and inviting and we look forward to visiting again.

We haven't been big bed and breakfast people in the past; but, we fell in love with this place. Everything from our room furnishings to the great breakfast was simply phenomenal. The seasonal Christmas decor throughout the Inn was picture perfect. Finally, it was an experience to get to know the owners during our breakfast time.

My husband and I were priveleged to stay at the Barn Inn B&B for a much needed getaway. Unfortunately, we ended up having a miscarriage while we were there. The innkeepers offered to refund our room, there were flowers waiting in our room expressing sympathy, and they provided a much needed family-like experience for us while we grieved and rested. The inn is constantly being updated, it is luxurious, and you feel like you are just part of the family while you are there. I will be a lifetime customer...

As always our stay at the Barn Inn in Amish country was awesome!

My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at the Barn Inn....a beautiful get-a-way. My husband works long hours and takes work related phone calls 24/7....he shut his phone off and just relaxed for the day & night. What a perfect time together.. I only wish we could have stayed one more night. The B & B was perfect in every way. Paul and Loretta thought of everything to make it a wonderful stay. We will be back....

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast. The Barn Inn was the perfect place to relax . The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the innkeepers Paul and Loretta were as well. The homemade breakfasts are delicious and all the stories about local folk are great to listen to.We appreciated the suggestions for sightseeing and shopping. We definitely want to come back and are recommending them to our friends and families.
4.4 on October 11, 2012
This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and my husband and I (along with 2 other couples) were VERY impressed! It was much more personalized than staying in a hotel--we were given a tour upon checking in and additionally was shown where the snacks and drinks were for the evening. They left a table unset for breakfast for us to play cards on that evening--very obliging with any needs or wants we had. It was very clean, neat and tidy with a whole lot of personality! There was even an area in the back to walk and take pictures, which was very nice with the fall foliage and weather. I am gluten intolerant and when my husband called a couple of days previous to our visit and asked if a microwave was available for me to heat up my GF food, she informed him she was gluten intolerant as well and would make pancakes especially for me! They were wonderful!! I have to say I felt pretty special!! lol After breakfast, she proceeded to give us a history of the Amish community that we would see and experience for the day. LOVED our visit!! Highly recommend it!!

We spent the last weekend in Millersburg, OH, where we stayed at The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast. Paul and Loretta Coblentz do a great job of effectively running this B&B, making their guests feel welcome; giving them needed attention without being overbearing. A delightful mix of thoughtful amenities (such as popcorn, hot chocolate and movies always available), and rustic charm. What we found impressive was talking to guests at breakfast and finding out that many of them were guests who continually return to The Barn Inn. We will, in the future, be among those guests returning to this lovely, cozy and comfortable, home away from home. Sherri and David Crowell Dayton, Oh

My 60th Birthday weekend with my friends, A Bus Tiur was one of the exciting part of the whole weekend plus staying at The Barn Inn.
5 on September 25, 2012
we enjoyed ourselves very much and have recommended it to others
4.8 on September 22, 2012
We were welcomed as soon as we arrived. We were settled into our room and given a quick tour and a list of good places to eat. After we got back from one of those recommended places we relaxed and talked with Paul. Then we made some popcorn and hot chocolate and watched a movie. All provided for us. We were served a wonderful breakfast in the morning and given some great advice on what to see and do. We will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Barn Inn. From walking in the door and taking in the warm atmosphere, the gracious welcome, and the lovely and comfortable rooms, we were certainly pleased. Private entrance in the back to our room, with a picturesque view of Llama and sheep grazing. Loretta had a delicious breakfast buffet each morning, and gave us an informative briefing of Amish history and lifestyles, and provided directions to many must see attractions. The location was convenient to travel to all the towns we visited.
5 on September 21, 2012
This was our third stay at The Barn Inn. We enjoy the 'at home' feeling. Our room was cozy and comfortable. The quiet, country setting is so relaxing and the morning aroma of Loretta's delicious breakfast is something to look forward to. Loretta's talk about the Amish way of life and the countryside was very informative. We look forward to a return visit. B. Garrett

The most relaxing stay my wife and I have had ANYWHERE. From our walk through the woods and feeding the animals, to the most comfortable bed I had ever slept in on the road. Going to sleep with a cool breeze blowing through the window and waking up to the smell of an amazing breakfast. Loretta's after breakfast talk hit the nail on the head with suggestions on where to go and what to see. No question was left unanswered. She was the ideal host.
4.8 on September 18, 2012
My husband and I stayed in the "blue room" and it was perfect. The room was beautiful, the innkeepers were so kind and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful. We walked the grounds and sat on the deck and read. We will definately make a point of coming back!
4.4 on September 18, 2012
We stay at the Barn Inn at least once annually. Our experiences with the Barrn Inn have always been excellent. We always look forward to our return visits.

My.best friend and I came down for a night and we stayed at The.Barn Inn. The olace is so relaxing and elegent. From the nice quiet place where its located, the gazebo out back and tne beautiful rooms, a person could not ask for more. Oh and the breakfast in the morning, WOW!!! I will stay there again and again!!
5 on September 12, 2012
By far this is the best place to stay in Amish country. Loretta could not have been more accomodating. We will return.
4.8 on September 11, 2012
We stayed in the Cottage Suite and enjoyed the privacy it afforded. We missed the wonderful breakfast at the Barn Inn but had a supply of fresh fuits and muffins. The extra room was worth missing the breakfast.
5 on September 09, 2012
We had a wonderful time celebrating our 20th anniversary at the Barn Inn in Millersburg, Ohio. We are from Wooster ~ so not too far away. However, the remoteness and the Amish atmosphere of Holmes County made us feel as if we were a million miles away and without a care in the world. It was fantastic. The wonderful spread of food for breakfast was scrumptous and beyond compare. We loved being able to grab a quilt from the trunk in the hall, grab a movie from the cabinet and curl up on the sofa in our room for "date night." It was fantastic!
5 on August 29, 2012
Could not ask for more wonderful people and very friendly Also gives plenty of Info on the area and the culture.
4.4 on August 27, 2012
We spent the night in the Memory Lane room and I must say my husband was more than pleased (now that's saying something!). Beautiful property, very informative hosts. I would have to say the one drawback would be the TV. Our breakfast was a wonderful experience and Loretta & Paul provide more than information on the area, you also get a few life lessons as well. Thanks for a wonderful stay & we hope to visit again.
3.6 on August 27, 2012
Itwas a nice B&B. My son who also went with us was anxiously awaiting a fabulous breakfast but it was just ordmary
5 on August 24, 2012
We loved our visit to The Barn Inn, Millersburg, OH. The innkeepers were gracious & welcoming. The rooms and the inn in general were very lovely. Breakfast was outstanding!
4.6 on August 22, 2012
An incredible B & B in the middle of a beautfiul countryside. Looking out our suite, we were looking at cows, goats, alpaca's, etc. It was quiet, rustic and clean. What else can you ask for....Paul and Loretta work way too hard and do a great job making your experience special. Recommend it to everyone!
5 on August 20, 2012
Beautiful country setting. Clean, beautifully decorated room. Friendly innkeepers. Excellent breakfast. Would highly recommend!! Great romantic get-a-way!!
4.8 on August 15, 2012
This was the first visit to the Amish Country for my husband and I. Staying at The Barn Inn was a great decision. The rooms were comfortable, the food was great and Loretta was a wonderful hostess as well helpful with helping us plan what to visit. I would highly recommend The Barn Inn to anyone visiting the area!
4.2 on August 14, 2012
I stayed at The Barn Inn for 2 days as a "mommy getaway". It was my first visit to a bed and breakfast but will definately not be my last. Loretta and Paul were so friendly and inviting. The room was clean and cozy. The breakfast was delicious, only wish there had been more. I would absolutely stay here again. Maybe I'll even bring my husband next time, maybe!!!
5 on August 08, 2012
We have stayed at The Barn Inn for three consecutive years after picking our daughter up at Camp. We stay in the Fred Gehrig house which affords our family plenty of space and opportunity to "recover" from camp. We keep returning as The Barn Inn has such a low key style while providing rich opportunities to learn more about the surrounding area in more than a touristy way. The recommendations that Paul and Loretta provide are ones that give you a true feel of how the Amish live, work and play. We will return again.
4.4 on July 29, 2012
My stay at The Barn Inn B&B was wonderful! The rooms are decorated great, and the food is great. Paul and Loretta were the best hosts! Friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and local customs. Looking forward to my next stay!
4.4 on July 29, 2012
Very welcoming and friendly. Great knowledge of the area and Amish life.
5 on July 24, 2012
Wonderful place close to everything. Great food, rooms, and of course owners! We will be back soon.
5 on July 24, 2012
My wife and I just stayed in the Memory Lane room to celebrate our 11th anniversary. The room was so romantic and much more than we expected. Paul walked us to our room and made us feel right at home. Breakfast was great, I highly recommend the oatmeal. My wife and I are looking forward to staying there next year as well.
5 on July 22, 2012
Setting is unique, rooms are comfortable and cozy. Morning breakfast comes with informational session with Loretta that provided us with great insight into the Amish community and where to go to buy different items without using the normal big city retail markets. We enjoyed our stay tremendously; look forward to making a repeat visit soon.
4.8 on July 20, 2012
We enjoyed a great overnight stay at The Barn Inn. The staff upon arrival & at breakfast was very friendly & helpful. We hope to return sometime in future.
4.6 on July 17, 2012
My stay was peaceful, quiet, relaxing, everything I needed seem to be right at my finger tips! I only wish I would've had phone service. Once I arrived and noticed that there's no Tmobile tower in the area, I was told only Verizon phones work. This would be helpful information at the time of making a reservation. I couldn't relax the way I wanted because I was worried about my Son not being able to contact me. But all and all, everything was great! The staff was very helpful and I will be back! With a prepaid Verizon phone! LOL...
4.6 on July 15, 2012
Everything was wonderful! The entire place was very clean, everyone was friendly, and every detail possible was considered by the staff during our stay. We would strongly recommend The Barn Inn! :)
4.8 on July 12, 2012
This was a getaway for my wife and I. We could not have picked a better place. Our hosts were friendly and informative. Would go back angain and have already recommended it to friends.
5 on July 10, 2012
Our room was very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room was very clean and despite the extreme heat it was very comfortable which made our stay very pleasant. The breakfast's were excelletn lots of variety and plenty of food. The host's were gracious and very helpful with information for the area and suggestions on what to do and see. We give it an outstanding rating.
5 on July 09, 2012
This is a fantastic B&B! Wonderful rooms, friendly staff, beautiful grounds, and fantastic food. Truly a place to revisit time and again.
5 on July 04, 2012
We were just at The Barn Inn last week for a 2 night stay. We will definitely be going back. The innkeepers, Loretta and Paul are very nice and share their knowledge of the area with you each morning at the wonderful breakfast they prepare for you. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this unique inn and the nice couple that run the inn......a definite must see!
3.8 on July 04, 2012
If you want to gain some wisdom about the Amish, this is the place. The innkeepers/owners fill you in every morning about what is going on in the area and also give some Amish history and personal stories about the Amish. Loved it and did't want to go home. We stayed in the Gehrig house and it was so nice. Big porch, had everything you need. Can't wait to stay again.
5 on June 29, 2012
1. We were welcomed warmly. 2. We were shown around the facility having all of the special accommodations were explained and pointed out to us. 3. Multiple "extras" were available and enjoyed by us. 4. Breakfast was unique and delicious. 5. Host and Hostess extremely warm, helpful and a pleasure to get to know them. They shared their time and knowledge of the area with us, that made touring easy and more meaningful.

Very enjoyable. The Inn is out in the country which made for a very quiet and peaceful stay.

Very nice place to stay, people were friendly and ready to help if any questions. Nice surroundings and reasonably priced.

Amazing breakfast, very friendly service, and extremely accommodating. We will be back and tell everyone we know to visit.
5 on June 22, 2012
This has been the second time we have had accommodations at The Barn Inn and we had a super vacation! Loretta serves the most delicious breakfast (and she gladly takes food allergies into consideration). There are snacks galore and coffee available at all times. She has a short presentation on "suggested" sites to see or visit which has been very beneficial to us. Will be back for another tour of Amish country.
4.8 on June 22, 2012
I enjoyed a wonderful stay at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. Loretta was so sweet and eager to help us find things to do . She gave a informative talk about Amish history after our fantastic breakfast of quiche, homegrown sausage, oatmeal, oatmeal pancakes with cherry syrup, and fresh fruit. The Barn Inn is a beautiful, clean, and a wonderful place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes a awesome country experience.
4.8 on June 20, 2012
This is an excellent getaway literally in the heart of Amish Country in Holmes County, Ohio. The Barn Inn is comfortable and clean, quiet, and beautiful. The owners maintain it immaculately and are clearly motivated to ensure their guests enjoy their stay. Breakfast is fabulous, and the hosts tell stories and answer questions about the Amish. Highly recommended!
2.8 on June 16, 2012
We enjoyed our one night stay at the Barn Inn...standard rooms were a little small...room could have used a little bit of a spruce up especially in the bathroom which seemed outdated. Breakfast and talk about Amish was great as well as the peacefull setting...
5 on June 12, 2012
I have traveled throughout the USA and Europe and The Barn Inn by far surpasses any experience I have had. Paul and Loretta were wonderful host/hostess, we will definitely be returning.
5 on June 10, 2012
I have spent many nights enjoying the Amish culture, but always from the comforts of a nice hotel. I have always wondered what the attraction was of a Bed and Breakfast, what could they possibly offer. All it took for me was one night at the Barn Inn, and I know now that while I'm in Berlin, The Barn Inn is where I'll always go. Our experiences with the tranquility, our very gracious hostess, Loretta, one of the most delectable breakfasts I've ever enjoyed and the ambience enjoyed from the different rooms all decorated differently are so inviting that one trip will not suffice. Did I mention breakfast? Loretta went out of her way to make a special breakfast for Jim to accommodate his dietary needs. I have been asked before about reccommendations from our past visits, and I can say that The Barn Inn will always be at the top of my list. Thank you Paul and Loretta for a most wonderful time, we will be back soon.
5 on May 31, 2012
So we went down to Amish Country just for a romantic over-nighter...my boyfriend had never been to amish country before, and neither of us had ever been to a B&B. The Barn Inn served both up on a silver platter. Some adjectives to describe our accomodations...charming, cozy, gorgeous country setting...we stayed in the Memory Lane VIP Suite, and it was worth every penny - it was enchanting - and all of this was accompanied by extremely friendly, helpful, informed hosts, who kept the place very clean and prepared a lovely breakfast. They also provided a tour guide list for those of us interested in exploring and learning more about the Amish lifestyle. They made it a comfortable, accomodating, lovely place to stay to enjoy the beautiful setting in Millersburg. It was a wonderful experience, if only we could have stayed longer at the Barn Inn.
5 on May 28, 2012
Paul and Loretta provide a welcoming atmosphere for weary travelers or energetic vacationers! The warm welcome, detailed and personalized information about the local area were much appreciated. Met a gentleman at breakfast who was on his 21st stay at The Barn. I understand why! This will be a place you'll want to return to many times over. With gratitude, Rev. Catherine Daniels - www.OhioWeddingLady.com - Minister/Officiant
5 on May 25, 2012
We have stayed there numerous times and each visit has been great. In addition to great food and wonderful accommodations, there are many interesting places to visit in the area. The owners are very helpful in providing the information necessary
5 on May 23, 2012
This was our second time staying at the wonderful Barn Inn. The place is beautifully decorated! I was particularly taken with all the quilts. Breakfast was delicious!. After breakfast, Loretta and Paul told those staying there about the area and gave pointers of places to visit. Some of the places are not publicized, so you go off the "beaten path". Something we really enjoy! So sorry that this time we were only able to spend one night at the Barn Inn, but we'll be back. Thanks, Loretta and Paul, for your very warm hospitality!
5 on May 21, 2012
My husband and I just got home from a three night stay at the Barn Inn. Since it was our first experience with a B & B we did not know what to expect, but it certainly was not that we would be treated like a member of their family! How friendly that was! I especially enjoyed the not-planned chats in the dining room in the afternoons and the information about the area activities that was given when we had our wonderful breakfasts in the mornings! When we left, we were wished well, given a hug, and invited to come back. I noticed many of the visitors there were people who had returned, and one day I would like to be counted in that number also.
4.8 on May 19, 2012
This is my absolute favorite place to stay. It is beautiful and clean and the inn keepers are amazing. We have been going for many years and they have become like family. They tell the greatest stories and Loretta's breakfasts are beyond wonderful. Melinda Columbus, OH
4.6 on May 16, 2012
We had a lovely time at The Barn Inn in Millersburg, Ohio. The Innkeepers were quite congenial. The accomodations were very comfortable, with beautiful antique pieces placed throughout the Inn. The homecooked breakfast was a delight to all. We were celebrating our daughter's graduation from college, so our stay at The Barn Inn was a special part of an exciting weekend.
4.8 on May 15, 2012
I recently stayed at the Barn Inn with 2 of my friends for a Girls' weekend. We stayed in the Fred Gehrig house. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. We visited several places in Amish Country that were recommended by Loretta, and her recommendations were wonderful. The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this Inn!
5 on May 14, 2012
We always enjoy our time at The Barn Inn. The hospitality is excellent. Loretta always shares the Amish culture and has many different places to visit throughout the area. The food is outstanding. The decor of the Barn Inn is beautiful. What a wonderful place to visit!

Loretta & Paul are gracious hosts, Loretta's breakfasts are legendary - healthy & delicious. The rooms in this lovely renovated barn are tastefully decorated and have all modern conveniences. This was our 5th stay and it won't be our last. Loretta is warm & engaging, she provides information about the local Amish/Mennonite community and will advise guests of places to visit.

I ranked each category as Outstanding, because this B & B is truly outstanding! Paul & Loretta make one feel right at home. The inn is beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast is superb. And Loretta's talk, which gives a view of Amish life in a nutshell, is invaluable (I learned a lot even though I have lived and worked with great Amish friends in Holmes County).
5 on May 02, 2012
We spent a great relaxing week end at The Barn Inn! Breakfast was delicious and the information given about the area by Loretta and Paul was fantastic! This was a gift from our son and daughter-in-law.. We stayed in Memory Lane..... We are in Amish country frequently... on motorcycles .... This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast! Will return again!
5 on May 02, 2012
Every time we come to this beautiful county, we always want to stay with Paul and Loretta. Our children live in other states, so our short getaways are just a few hours away. We've sent guest to the Barn Inn and they agree with us, it's great. We look forward to bringing our sons and daughters in law to enjoy this very special place.
5 on April 23, 2012
My husband and I stayed at The Barn Inn and were very impressed. Loretta and her husband were very accommodating and yet respectful of privacy. The food was delicious, the rooms were beautiful and every attempt was made to make us feel at home. We can't wait to go back!!

We absolutely loved this bed and breakfast. Rooms were clean and had a very personal feel to them. The breakfast was amazing. Loretta and Paul were incredible hosts and made us feel like family.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Barn Inn. We were celebrating Valentine's Day and our 47th wedding anniversary. We found roses and a card waiting in our room when we checked in and a candle on our table for dining. This was our second visit and we will definitely return. probably in warmer weather so we can sit on the balcony and also use the gazebo. Very relaxing. We felt like we were at home.

The night we stayed at the Barn Inn exceeded beyond our expectations. The Inn is gorgeously decorated, from room to room, and yet we experienced such a warm and home-like atmosphere - especially with Loretta's Christmas cookies baking in the kitchen. We enjoyed conversation with both Paul and Loretta in our short visit and look forward to spending time with them next year. Thank you so much, Loretta and Paul

We have ghone to The Barn Inn every year since they opened in 1997 for our anniversary. What a great way to release the stresses of everyday life! Time after time Loretta and Paul give their best to you as a guest at the Inn. GO THERE!!!

My daughter and I stayed at the Barn Inn on the weekend of the BandB Cookie tour. It is a beautiful place and the food was phenomenal!! The owners were so friendly and helpful! I would definitely stay again. The only negative was the mattress. It was very hard and we both had a hard time sleeping. Memory foam mattress toppers would be a help.
Thank you for posting a review. In studying our stays for the weekend in reference, I believe I have determined which room you slept in. Most of the inn's beds have been updated with mattresses that have an additional memory foam pillow tops. These mattresses are so thick and plush that we must purchase the extra deep fitted sheets for them. Thank you for bringing the need for an update in the referenced room to our attention. You can be assured that we will replace it very quickly and hope you will visit us again.
5 on November 30, 2011
This was our 5th stay with Paul and Loretta, every thing was great and as we had expected. The Inn is wonderful and the food could not be beat! The area is so charming, I wish WE could have stayed longer. Looking forward to our next visit.

My wife and I are on a year long celebration of our 5oth wedding anniversary and we are very glad to be able to include The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast experience in that celebration. Our kind hosts arranged side-by-side massages at our request. They showed up right on time and gave us full value for our money. These were the best massages we have ever had. The weather was perfect and accomodations were outstanding. We will definitely arrange to stay here again.

We were at the Bed & Breakfast to celebrate our 23rd Anniversary. The accomodations & the friendliness of the host were outstanding.

My wife and I stayed there just last night and what a great stay it was! We were greeted at the door and were treated like a King and Queen.

For many years our Girls Night Out has met in Amish country. And for many years management has asked us to "Quiet down". This year the separate house at The Barn Inn was booked by some of the women, with the remaining women staying in The Barn Inn. The use of a kitchen, refrigerator, large downstairs, and a building away from the other guests was great. It allowed us the opportunity to cook our own meal (actually pizza was ordered), eat together, store our salads, drinks and snacks, and~ most importantly~ laugh as loudly as we wanted! And no one knocked on the door requesting us to be quiet. The welcome we received from Loretta and Paul was phenomenal. The breakfast was five star and the Amish discussion presented by Loretta was worth every cent of our bill. The lengthy list of area Amish businesses is one I will treasure AND use. The Barn Inn is certainly "Good value for your money."

After a very busy summer of grass mowing, planting flowers, trimming gardens and then raking leaves in the autumn, I was ready for a little rest and relaxation. I got these at the Barn Inn B&B!! Together with delicious breakfasts, hints on where to shop and the best Amish services, I truly spent a great time with Loretta and Paul Coblentz and their staff. It was like being a queen and having my staff serving me. Tasty food and wonderful commentary to assist in my sightseeing and visiting. Kudos to the Barn Inn!!
5 on November 21, 2011
I hardly know where to begin to describe our wonderful stay. Loretta showed us our room & explained how everything worked which was very helpful. Our room was very clean & so beautiful. The coffee maker & popcorn were a nice extra. Breakfast was very good & it was very helpful to have Loretta talk about the area. I have been to Amish country before but she told us about places to see that I didn't know about. Paul & Loretta are wonderful inn keepers and are always so helpful. I would highly recommend this bed & breakfast above all others in the area. OUTSTANDING!!!!!
5 on November 20, 2011
This was our first visit to a Bed & Breakfast -- and we started at the top! We've already made our reservations for next year. The room was fantastic, the bed was comfortable, my husband enjoyed the recliner, and there was a desk and chair for my computer! The breakfast buffet was fantastic! We enjoyed Loretta's educating us on the Amish culture. She does a short (sometimes not long enough) talk right after breakfast, about the area, the culture and things to see. She gave us printouts of places to go and so much information! We understood and appreciated what we saw on our travels so much more because of the information she provided each morning. The common areas are beautiful and very comfortable. We were there with a group and used the long dining room table to play cards far into the night. Such fun!! Thanks Loretta, Paul, and staff -- we're looking forward to next year!
5 on November 19, 2011
My husband and I are both teachers, and we just needed to get away for the weekend. The Barn Inn is always the place we think about for a getaway. Loretta and Paul make us feel as though we are family. On this weekend trip, Loretta had arranged for us to go into an Amish home for a meal. It was an amazing experience! We will be back!

What a low key, warm and friendly stay it was at The Barn Inn.Loretta and Paul made our stay with them great by even setting up supper on saturday evening at an Amish home. That was an experience in it self.The food was very tasteful and plentiful. But the country breakfast at the Inn was the best,homemade sausage,cinnamon raisin french toast,different breads and more.We would do it again in a heart beat.Highly reccomended!!

Lovely visit with lovely hosts. Loretta provided us with great options for our visit to Amish country and graciously worked with our multi-party group -- different arrivals, different bills. Our stay in the farmhouse provided us with personal space for the late night chats of our cousins' weekend and began each day with a delicious breakfast for a very reasonable cost. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

We have stayed at The Barn Inn since 2003 at least 15 times and it is our favorite place to stay in the area. Paul & Loretta always share something new with us. This time we saw the love of Christ flow through them as they seek to help a couple in the area get a badly needed stove. We are blessed to call them friends & share in helping this family in need.

Syl and I celebrated our 43rd anniversary on October 27th at the BARN INN B&B as we did last year. Loretta and Paul have always made us feel special when we are at their B&B. She has gone way beyond what makes an enjoyable stay with them. she even made a special diet for me. these things make their place above any other. Irwin and Sylvia

We have stayed at the barn inn every year for the past 10 years. We have stayed at at least 10 other b&b , inns or hotels in that same time period. This is our favorite for several reasons. The b&b is attractive , very clean and very comfortable. The owners take the time to help you find the authentic points of interest that you would be interested in. We have made purchases of rugs , glassware , brooms and leather goods from Amish homes at much lower prices than in the markets (even the flea markets). The quality is excellent. Loretta's cooking is excellent and always has surprises. The treats at night are great. It is the best place to soak up the local atmosphere and meet the locals. You will not regret this choice. It has always been the highest quality and the most enjoyable b&b in the area. Marc and Vivian. Steve and linda

Everything about The Barn Inn was wonderful from the inviting common area to the absolutely beautiful room, excellent homemade food and georgeous scenery. Loved the meadow with the grazing animals and the bridges to walk around and explore. Loretta's suggestions of places to visit and shop were great. Did not want to leave. Truly a memorable experience for our 50th anniversary.
4.8 on October 27, 2011
Paul and Loretta were so nice and very helpful giving us maps and directions to the amish areas when we first arrived. It was our very first time staying at a B&B and our first time visting the area. The room was beautiful and very clean. The food was AWESOME!!! The grounds were so pretty and relaxing.. WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER OUR 29th ANNIVERSARY, AND WE WILL RETURN!!!!!! THANKS

My husband and I had a nice stay here. Paul and Loretta were great and we enjoyed the breakfast and listening to them talk about the area and their recommendations. Overall, this was a great place to stay and we would definitely consider going back.
5 on October 27, 2011
The Barn Inn was highly recommended by a friend who visits the area. We were thrilled by the rooms, service, cleanliness, and food. My expectations were more than fully satisfied. It was a wonderful value for the money. I highly recommend staying there.
4.6 on October 26, 2011
This was our first B & B. We loved it. We felt very comfortable....like being in our own home. Loretta and Paul were so welcoming.

We went to The Barn Inn B&B last year and was very impressed, so we went back this year to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary! Paul and Loretta brought a lovely rose arrangment to our room for our special anniversary and was very gracious as always. We always enjoy the evening snacks and the great country breakfast with all the other guests. A beautiful Inn and lovely settings!!!
5 on October 24, 2011
We have been staying at The Barn Inn for many years now as we visit Holmes County each fall. Paul and Loretta Coblentz continue to go out of their way to make sure that our stay is as comfortable and fun as possible. Breakfast with Loretta is a wonderful experience every time, with her delicious homemade creations and her descriptions of the local attractions. We wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else!
4.2 on October 23, 2011
Our room at the Barn Inn was very cozy. The mattress was wonderful and gave us a great night's sleep. The nice, thick bath towels were a welcome touch. Breakfast was very good, and we greatly enjoyed Loretta's after-breakfast talk on highlights of the area. We followed her advice and were not disappointed.
4.8 on October 23, 2011
We chose to celebrate (for the 3rd year)our anniversary at the inn. We had a wonderful time celebrating our 44th with the wonderful guests and innkeepers--the food and hospitality was THE BEST! Just like home--only better! Bob & Bonnie H.
5 on October 21, 2011
This place was fabulous. We stay at a lot of Inns however this is first time we've had an Innkeeper talk to us about what to do in the area. Paul was wonderful in making us feel welcome and we really enjoyed Loretta's talk about what to do and the Amish families in the area. We've been coming to Millersburg and Berlin for years and we learned new things because of Loretta's talk. We will certainly come again. This by far is our new favorite Inn. Thanks.

Very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere with wonderful accomodations and breakfasts.
3.6 on October 19, 2011
The Barn Inn has a quaint down home feel. This is my third visit and I will definitely return. Paul and Loretta couldn't be more welcoming or accommodating. Both are extremely friendly and helpful. Loretta's orientations on the Amish and places to visit ensures your time it well spent. We really like the Barn Inn.

Neither of us had ever stayed in a B&B and my husband had never been to Amish Country. Although, always having a desire to stay in a B&B you are somewhat skeptical. We arrived late around 10pm on a Friday evening apologizing that we couldn't get away from town any sooner. Paul and Loretta greeted us and and from that first moment made us feel so very welcome. We asked how late we could get in as we needed to get something to eat we were just going to run out for a pizza they told us we could have a pizza delivered even offered us coupon's for the local pizza place. Loretta showed us to our room and what a beautiful room it was, showed us around how to work the TV right down to how the dimmer light worked in the bathroom where to two person jacuzzi was. The breakfast each morning was fabulous topped with a talk about the local Amish and sites to visit. This had to have been the best trip to Amish country I have ever had. Not only did I have the privilege of staying in what has to be the best B&B (I'm now spoiled) but I learned so much about the Amish and got away from the commercial aspect of Amish country. You gain a respect for the culture and a love for the people you meet. My husband and I had a truly wonderful time celebrating our first wedding anniversary and look forward to going back again. Thank you Paul and Loretta.

Anyone who is looking for a relaxing stay this is the place. Close enough to all stores and sites, but far enough for peace and quiet. The innkeepers were wonderful. Breakfast was GREAT and everyone staying there that evening make friends.
5 on October 15, 2011
We stayed with Paul and Loretta for the first time this past week. We have been coming to the Berlin area for many years for our anniversary, and this was our first stay at the Barn Inn. We have nothing but great things to say about our stay there. The room was very clean, and quiet. The Inn itself and the grounds around it were a pleasure to explore. Paul and Loretta were the best hosts we have had in all our time coming here. The breakfast was to die for, and we both left the table stuffed for sure. Lorettas' talk after breakfast about the surrounding Amish culture and special places to go even included some things we had not tried yet. We will definetly keep this place as our number one choice to stay at whenever we come back to Berlin. Thank you once again Paul and Loretta for making our anniversary a very special one. The Peros'

There were 3 of us and we were assigned to the "Manager's Retreat." It worked perfectly for us with 2 bedrooms, a living room, a full kitchen. The breakfast was outstanding, and the talk Loretta gave afterwards was very interesting and informative. On top of all that, we each received a gift of a small jar of jam and a card to receive a free gift from a merchant in Kidron that was a beautiful Christmas ornament worth $12.00 with an Amish family on it--very nice and totally unexpected. This stay will remain in our memories forever!

I have been to Holmes County a number of times but my stay at The Barn Inn B&B far exceeded any other time. When my friend and I arrived at the Inn, 2 young men with draft horses were cutting and bailing straw directly across the road. One came over afterward to talk with a group of us staying at the Inn. He allowed us to take pictures of his horses and machinery. The accommodations were much to our liking and breakfast the following morning was outstanding - best scones I have ever eaten. The pecan bars that were served in the afternoon were also superb. Loretta and Paul (our hosts) were great. The information they gave us about the Amish people was so enlightening. We were directed to some wonderful places to see, one being a farm run by a family of the strictest Amish sect who sold wonderfully handcrafted baskets out of their home. We met most of the family members and were able to observe the way they worked and lived. It was definitely a highlight of the trip. We plan to return with more people next year.

The Barn Inn was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and there was a lot of it. There was always fresh desserts or popcorn to snack on. After breakfast the Inn keepers talked about things to do in the area and gave a list of there favorite places to visit. We took there advise and had a wonderful time eating, shopping and getting great deals. We learned a lot about the Amish way of life and enjoyed our stay. We will go back.
5 on October 10, 2011
WE stayed one night at this bed and breakfast and would stay there again. Not only was the room cosy and clean but the whole building was welcoming. The breakfast was good and we really enjoyed the inn keepers short talk about the way of life of the amish but also what was going on that day or the next in the area. We definately will be back!!
4.4 on October 10, 2011
We went here during the prime weekend in Amish Country. All communications with the innkeepers were very pleasant and helpful. Very friendly owners. We especially loved the delicious breakfast and the historical information that the innkeeper shared with everyone after breakfast. It was excellent! We will definitely return and will take friends/family with us next time! thank you for an awesome stay and weekend!

First the location is just right. The owners were very pleasent, they made you feel relaxed and at home. Breakfast was a treat, home made. I love the information that Loretta gave us about the area. I recomend the Barn Inn to every one who likes a step back in time. my wife and i will be going back there for sure!!!!

Loretta and Paul make you fill at home. Looking forward to going back some day.

Great hosts, great food, great information, an exceptional place A must place to visit

This was the first time my husband and I have stayed at a Bed & Breakfast. I have to say that The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast has set the bar high for other B&Bs. We stayed in the Rennaisance room and it was fit for a King. The breakfasts are extremely good and plentiful. After breakfast the Innkeepers give background information about the Amish and highlight some of their favorite sights. This trip was one of the best we have taken and would not have been as good if it was not for the accomodations and information received. Thank you Paul and Loretta for a great time.

My wife and I could not get a lot of time off so we located The Barn Inn in Millersburg, Ohio. It is right in the middle of Ohio Amish Country. The INN was incredible. The look on my wife's face when we were shown our room was wortht the trip in itself. The ambience, the location, the amenities and especially our host were the best we have every had at any of the B&B's that we have stayed. It was actually a Barn that was rebuilt and redone. Our room was the Vintage Rose. A suite with King bed, fireplace, outside deck, refigerator, couch and recliner and a full size bathroom with a shower and two person jacuzzi. Each morning with our brakfast the host Loretta was very interesting an knowledeable about the area the life styles and the tradition. She told us of places off the beaten path that were very enjoyable. Actually because we were trying to relax we really didn't need to leave the grounds or our room. It was like a fantasy weelend for us. www.thebarninn.com The Bertram's Rick and Brenda

I felt welcome as soon as I walked in the inn. I appreciated the warm greetings and genuine concern. The breakfast and atmosphere was more than I expected. The explanation given by Loretta and Paul about the area attractions was very helpful. We had been in Millersburg before but it was interesting to find out some of the places we missed. I truly appreciated being a guest at the Barn Inn and I will return.
5 on September 26, 2011
My husband and I joined another couple for a two night stay at The Barn Inn. Everything was outstanding. We especially liked Loretta's informative talks each morning along with the scrumptuous breakfasts. We also enjoyed being close to the Inn at Honey Run where we dined both evenings. Although we didn't see everything we wanted to in Amish Country, we hope to return for another stay at the Barn Inn and more touring.

Since we've stayed here before, we knew what to expect. We will always be satsified with our visits to the Barn Inn. Ted & Betty Dahlke Lima , Ohio

We were so pleased with our stay. From the room to the great breakfast.The minute we walked in we felt the warmth of the Inn and the hosts. Sharing breakfast with the other guests and Loretta letting us know some of her favorite places to visit was a real treat. thanks, Todd & Sheri Tucker
5 on September 19, 2011
This Inn is a "must" if you are planning a trip to Holmes County. The innkeepers give an insiders view of the Amish community and great tips on where to go while in Holmes County. The day always starts with a fantastic breakfast to start the day and ends with a relaxing evening around the campfire or fireplace.
5 on September 18, 2011
My husband and I just returned from our second visit to the Barn Inn. What a wonderful place! Everything is very clean, the food is wonderful, Paul & Loretta are great and have so much information to share about the area! We will be going back!
4.8 on September 18, 2011
The setting and the architecture get you off to a great start.The rooms are pleasant and spotless and the common areas are unique to a barn with their openess and feeling of space.The food is excellent,warm and a good variety. The coffee,tea,cookies and even popcorn can be had during the day The main attraction to The Barn for us,was the Innkeepers.They are there,visable and available. Each morning during breakfast the inn keeper gives a pleasant and informative view of the day. What is happening and events that are available, questions of the detail of the culture of the area and gives directions on how to get where you want to go,which is a blessing in that part of the state.They are versed in the culture of the area and are willing to share that with you.You can also enjoy the llama, goat, and sheep in the near by pasture. The only sugestion I have is you might consider placing a grab bar inside of the shower to assist us oldsters. Russ & Nancy Beal,Maumee Ohio

My wife and I went to the barn inn for our honeymoon. The experience more than exceeded our expectations. It was outstanding. I recommend the barn inn to anyone who wants a good value for their money and a great experience. We plan on returning many times in the future.
4.4 on September 11, 2011
The Inn kind of felt like home, therefore I was very comfortable and not worried about cleanliness. It felt so good to know everything was taken care of by someone who cared. I felt like I was a guest in someone's home and they were glad I had come to visit. I also loved the country setting! Phyllis

A great place for adult couples to stay while visiting Ohio's amish country. Wonderful county style breakfast with great tps for places to see and things to do during your stay. Will be staying here again in the future.
5 on September 11, 2011
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city this is a great place to visit. If you are wanting to go to a fifth ave hotel with room service then I do not recommend coming here. When you check in you are met by the nicest folks(also there is always some type of homemade treat like cookies or lemon bars)available as soon as you walk in the door. All are private large rooms with sitting areas outside to enjoy. You are within 15 minutes of the local downtown area that is in the midst of Amish Country. In the morning you are greeted by a fantastic family style breakfast where you get to meet others who are also staying at the inn. You meet people from all over the country, staying for one night to a couple we met who were staying there for 10 days. Each morning during breakfast the owners talk about what is going on in the area to do, their heritage as being at one time part of the Amish Community and their familiies still and how they interact etc. We staying for a weekend and it was very relaxing, home type feeling. We hated to leave but will surely go back again.

This was a great place to stay. Quiet, peaceful surroundings, outstanding food.

Paul and Loretta make you feel so welcome. They are so knowledgable of the area and the amish culture it makes your visit even more wonderful!
5 on September 06, 2011
This was our 2nd visit in a year. We still learn so much about the area from Paul and Loretta, which makes the experience truly memorable. Both the Innkeepers and their staff are very attentive to your needs. They even called around town on the night of Labor Day weekend trying to find us a place to dine...now that's service! We'll be back next year!
4.6 on September 05, 2011
Always enjoy our stay, Paul and Loretta are wonderful hosts. The food is always delicious. The bed in Old World Room was very noisy when you moved. The room was beautifully decorated. We always recommend the Barn Inn to our friends. We will plan to go back soon.
3.8 on September 05, 2011
The list of places to go and things to do that she hands out at breakfast exceeded everything I could have hoped for. We had been to a number of places the day before that Loretta recommended and were pleased. We changed our itinerary based on what she recommended and we were so glad that we did. She truly knows the best places to go and eat. I would highly recommend this place. Colleen
4.8 on September 02, 2011
Would have love to have stayed longer in this beautiful area & wonderful B&B. Room & food were excellent in this peaceful setting. Culture talks by Loretta along with interraction with other guests at breakfast helped us plan what places we knew we didn't want to miss. Hope to go back sometime! ...from Salisbury, NC

The Barn Inn is a wonderful, relaxing bed and breakfast - we have stayed here twice now and cannot wait until we return once again. Paul and Loretta are so friendly and the breakfast is amazing - always lots of food to eat. Loretta takes time after breakfast to talk about places to visit around the area - she meets with some of the Amish people who offer different items and adds them to the list - just a wonderful place!! :)

My husband surprised me with an overnight stay at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast for our 34th anniversary! What a wonderful surprise it was to be able to stay in such a beautiful place. We both needed some quiet time away, and that was just what we got. The breakfast was awesome, and Paul gave us the most interesting talk about the Amish traditions. All in all it was a fun trip, and hope to return again soon. Amy A. Morgan

This was a VERY relaxing and quiet weekend not to mention informative. During the breakfast hour the inn keeper gave many ideas of things to do in the area and talked a lot about the Amish culture. We had a great time and the inn and surrounding area is beautiful!!
4.8 on August 28, 2011
Recently stayed at The Barn for 2 nights in Aug. It is near many attractions yet in the country where you can escape and relax. We always stay in B & B's and this one rates at the top. The special experience here is during breakfast, Loretta, will give you wonderful information on Amish life and point out places that are not in any quide book. She speaks from experience as she and Paul were once Amish and still have a love and respect for them. Absolutely will return.
4.8 on August 24, 2011
Our stay at The Barn Inn was exceptional. Our room was beautiful. The owners are wonderful people who go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Exceptional breakfast every morning! I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay. We will definitly visit them again and highly recommend them to anyone staying in this area of the country.

I was not a fan of B&Bs until my husband and I along with another couple stayed at The Barn. The experience could not have been more positive, nor enjoyable. Everything was fresh, clean, cozy, and very welcoming. I could have sat on the back porch watching those sheep graze peacefully for an entire day. Thank you Loretta for a wonderful and memorable experience.

Been coming to The Barn Inn about once a year since they opened 15 years ago. Paul and Loretta are exceptional hosts for your visit to Amish country. Not only can they direct you to the best places to visit on and off the beaten path and with stories about their upbringing in the Amish community. Add a historic barn, rebuilt and expanded to offer nice B&B rooms with an excellent country breakfast each day.

We stayed in the Vintage Rose suite. It was so quiet and peaceful in and around the inn. The bed was super comfortable. The jacuzzi tub was quite relaxing. The hospitality and the breakfasts were fabulous!
5 on August 18, 2011
We stayed here a few years ago. Don't know why we didn't come back sooner. This small inn on a back county road is a great place for folks who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and find refuge and rest in a quiet spot in the midst of Ohio Amish country.
5 on August 18, 2011
This was our first visit to the The Barn Inn but it won't be our last! Paul and Loretta run an outstanding B&B. They made us feel at home right from the start. Sharing their knowledge about the Amish lifestyle with us was a plus. In addition, they recommended some of the best places to go to learn more about the Amish people and to interact with them. Our room was spotless and so comfortable plus the homemade breakfast was delicious. Our two-night stay was fabulous!
4.8 on August 17, 2011
My friend and I came to the Barn Inn for some much needed rest. From the moment we arrived Loretta made us feel at home. Breakfast with the other guests was fun and the food delicious. Loretta and Paul know the area and the Amish people. Their information was accurate and detailed. All rooms are decorated beautifully.

Paul and Loretta both made you feel very weclome and at homje. Justlike a big happy family

We stayed at the Barn Inn for our anniversary. What a wonderful place. The food was really good. The rooms are lovely, comfortable and very clean. Loretta, the owner, was really informative about the area and the best places to eat, sight see and shop. We will be back and will recommend The Barn Inn to our friends.

I loved our stay at The Barn Inn! It was so very relaxing and just what my husband & I needed before our baby girl arrives in 2 months. It was very peaceful and away from the city. I would definetly go back!
5 on August 15, 2011
The Barn Inn provided myself and my two girl friends the perfect spot to enjoy one another's company. It allowed us to laugh together, rest, and enjoy a wonderful breakfast. The information provided on the attractions in the area was a great help in planning our day. The Inn keepers, were warm and friendly. Thank you for a great stay!
4.8 on August 14, 2011
The Barn Inn was so unique in the fact that the owners are either former Amish or related to Amish. Therefore, they were very open to share historical facts about the area and people who live in Holmes County, OH. They actually gave each guest a 4 page listing of great places to visit while in the area. I have had the privilege of staying in several B & B's in the USA and also in Europe, and would rank this one right up at the top.
5 on August 14, 2011
This is the greatest Christmas present if someone is looking for the perfect gift. You can't beat this place for quiet, relaxing, great food and fantastic accomodations. We love it and go back every year. Loretta is a fantastic hostess, personalble and gives a great amish history with your breakfast. She also gives hints and directions to different places to visit if you like to do something out of the ordinary.
4.8 on August 13, 2011
From the moment we got to the The Barn Inn until we left, we were made to feel welcome. The whole B&B was very clean and the furnishings were beautiful. We needed a quiet place to relax and we were not disappointed.
4.8 on August 13, 2011
Since we’ve travelled to Holmes County and the Amish Country many times, we thought we knew everything there was to know about the area. Boy, were we wrong! Not only was the atmosphere of this B & B more relaxed and conducive to our group’s gathering, but the proprietors’ knowledge about the Amish and Mennonite religions gave us a true feel for the region that we’d never had before. Another bonus was the help of the owners in finding “back country’ Amish families that had beautiful crafts for sale that we would never have found in Berlin or Walnut Creek. They made the whole county seem like our back yard! This inn and its owners are true gems! We’ll be back.
5 on August 12, 2011
Loretta is such a sweet and pleasant Inn Keeper. Sharing her stores of the history of the area and the Inn. She gives you the best information for shopping and sight seeing in area. The Barn Inn is a great place to eat, relax and enjoy a breath taking view. My suite was just beautiful and sorry the on-line pictures does really do it justice. It was even better to see it in person. I will definitely make a return visit and I've passed the information to all my co-workers. Thanks for a great get a way!!!!

We stayed in the farm house adjacent to barn. Very private, clean and comfortable with modern conveniences. Close to town for shopping, tours, and wineries. The innkeepers are very hospitable and share a lot of info about the Amish and Mennonite cultures. Very enjoyable stay!
4.2 on August 09, 2011
Everything was good from the moment we walked in. The inn keeper took the time to show us around and shared information with us about our room. Our room was decorated very nicely and everything was clean. Breakfast was yummy and conversation at breakfast was great with a lot of information from the inn keeper. I do not sleep well on hard beds. So, if you are a soft bed sleeper you won't like the bed. Not sure if all beds in the inn are alike. They also need to replace their bath towels they have a bad oder when they get wet. Other wise everything was good. I would stay again.

This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised. At breakfast, Loretta shared her knowledge of the Amish which was very interesting. Note: There is little to no AT&T cell service in Amish country, none at The Barn Inn.
4.6 on August 03, 2011
For my first experience at a B&B I thought it was like home. Everyone was like your extended family. I will be going back for a second stay.
3.2 on August 03, 2011
If you want a quaint place with that homey feel then The Barn is the place to stay. The rooms were clean and well dressed. We did have an issue with the room temperature, a little to warm. The sign on the room air conditioner warned us that if it was too hot , then we were out of luck because the air was centrally controlled. The breakfast was good and the history of the Amish culture and insight to the surrounding area and it's residenet was facinating. Lots to do in the area and certainly warrants a second trip.
For clarification purposes, it is only in the Innkeeper's Retreat where the temperature is centrally controlled. All other guestrooms have their own individual climate control. We appreciate knowing that it was too warm, and we'll be certain to turn it cooler for future guests. We are sorry that we did not know that it was too warm, as we would have turned it cooler for you. Thank you for your review.

My husband and I stayed at The Barn Inn for our 23rd wedding anniversay. The rooms, environment and cleanliness were above expectations. We loved the breakfat and the after breakfast information that was shared about the Amish way of life. Awesome place and look forward to going back sometime.

My wife & I stayed at The Barn Inn for three days and two nights. The owners were fantastic and accomadating, the service was wonderful. We can't wait to stop in again! We also enjoyed the country side and the peace & quite. Most highly recommended.

Having travelled extensively and stayed in hundreds of hotels, motels and B&Bs this is the most outstanding plcae of all. It is truly amazing, the surrounding countryside is a beautiful and tranquil place to waken in. The moment you set foot in The Barn you know you have entered a place of exceptional quality, the furnishings are of high standard and opulent. We stayed in the French Country room with an antique bed and furniture to match, it is so comfortable that you dont want to leave and the home cooked country breakfast is a delicious feast. The hosts have thought of everything to make you feel comfortable and at home, they have an extensive knowledge of the surrounding areas and Amish Artisans and will guide you in the right direction to meet your needs. I could go on for ever singing the highest accolades for The Barn, the hosts and staff but will leave it here by saying it is a place everyone should visit and stay and one of the most truly amazing places we have visited and would highly recommend it to anyone

The Barn Inn was just beautiful from the appointment of the room to the surrounding countryside. The Coblentzs' were delightful and full of great information. Breakfast was good each day and we enjoyed the morning discussions. A wonderful place to stay and we would go there again as well as recommend it to others.

Loretta and Paul were amazing inn keepers with stories and experiences to share. I had a wonderful stay!!
4.4 on July 29, 2011
2nd time at the Barn Inn for our anniversary. a great place, quiet, relaxing, just what we needed. the food is excellent and a highlight of the trip. the Coblentz's are very helpful with information and places to go in the area. we highly recommend this B&B!
5 on July 28, 2011
This is the first time we have stayed at a B&B and if they are all like this place-then we will do it more oftern. The owners are marvelous people. Our room was clean and welcoming. And the breakfast was great. The place is beautiful and we will be coming back here again very soon.

We stayed at the Barn Inn--you may wonder why a barn?? The renovation of the barn was perfect. Everything is done beautifully. The Inn keepers were very hospitable. They have a warm personality and were helpful with any question we had. They provided us with a wonderful hot breakfast and information about the are. If you want to do any shopping I suggest that you get out there on Friday so you can do shopping on Saturday, as most shops are closed on Sunday. If you enjoy the contry this is one place you will want to explore.
5 on July 27, 2011
This is TOP of the places to stay. The inkeeper was so informative about the area that I could have listen to her for hours. The place is clean and the food was great. Will go back again and again.
3.8 on July 26, 2011
Never having stayed in a B&B, we were very pleased with the experience. The beds were very large and comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding. We will definitely stay here again when we are in Ohio.
4.4 on July 25, 2011
Since there were three of us, staying at the cheese maker's house was perfect. We had plenty of room. The rooms and decor were really nice. I also liked the full kitchen and back deck. The only thing I would change is the musty odor that I noticed in the house.
4.8 on July 23, 2011
This was our first time staying in a B&B. What a lovely experience! Loretta spoiled us with her excellent breakfasts and her morning information sessions on things to do, "must-sees", local custom and history. Our room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a nicer time.
4.8 on July 22, 2011
Loretta's information session at breakfast was fascinating. She directed us to Amish homes that sell baskets, furniture and quilts out in the country away from the tourist shops. Breakfast was delicious and her stories about the local Amish folks were so interesting. Holmes Co. is a charming place and so is this Inn. We definitely will return!
5 on July 20, 2011
A nice place to share with friends after a day of sightseeing and eating! Nice and quiet with good amenities.
4.8 on July 20, 2011
Great time, one night in the area and really enjoyed the grounds. They have a gazebo and a lot of things to do are provided in the total cost. Great experience overall with my girlfriend at this nice bed and breakfast. These are the kind of people who will wait on you hand and foot if you'd like, their very nice.
5 on July 20, 2011
The best bed & breakfast we have ever enjoyed. The home made breakfast was excellent and the history and culture of the area by Loretta was priceless.
5 on July 19, 2011
My husband took me back to The Barn Inn for my birthday after we stayed there in April for our anniversary. I've been to many B&Bs, but The Barn Inn is far and away my favorite! The two rooms that we've stayed in couldn't have been any nicer (Country Charm and Memory Lane); each had a fireplace in the room and a large jacuzzi in the private bath. But the real treat is breakfast! While the food is delicious, Loretta's daily talk is wonderful! She lets everyone know what is going on that day, offers suggestions on places to visit and things to see, and gives a little insight into the Amish people. On a morning in April, we watched through the windows during breakfast as an Amish farmer plow the fields across the road. The location is perfect! Every where you want to go is within an easy drive. We will definitely be going back again and again.
4.6 on July 19, 2011
We stayed one night at the Fred Gehrig house next to the Barn Inn. The house was wonderfully decorated and clean. It was nice for the three of us to have our own rooms, yet shared common areas - kitchen, living and dining rooms and 1 and half baths. Since we were there on Sunday night, we were able to get groceries and have a light dinner at the house. The area was quiet, relaxing, and nice to walk around. We enjoyed breakfast at the Inn and hearing Loretta share information about the area. We will go back!
4.4 on July 16, 2011
Far exceeded my expectations, breakfasts were varied and delicious. Each morning, the host/hostess would talk about places to visit and answer questions. The best part was the discussions regarding the Amish and Mennonite cultures, how they lived, worked, played and how the interacted as a family group and within the community. A truly educational experience.
4.8 on July 16, 2011
Loved the balcony outside my room where I could sit in the cool of the morning and read, or have conversation with my neighbor. My stay was a gift from a precious friend for my 48th wedding anniversary. Loved the coziness of the inn. Felt right at home.
4.6 on July 13, 2011
My wife and I badly needed a quiet weekend away from a very busy daily routine and found just what we were looking for at The Barn Inn. Quiet, clean, and comfortable are the qualities that we were searching for and managed to experience all of them, and much more. We will be returning in the Fall for another stay during our most favorite time of the year.
5 on July 13, 2011
We loved the setting. Very peaceful. Loretta and Paul made the visit a delight. The breakfast was fantastic. I would suggest this B&B to anyone who wants a great experience in Holmes county.
4.2 on July 12, 2011
We had six in our group and we all had an excellent stay in the heart of Amish Country. Loretta and Paul are very good hosts and they made our stay a pleasure and Loretta's talks at breakfast were very enlightening about the area. We will come back again to enjoy this country adventure.
5 on July 12, 2011
My fiance and I make a yearly trip to Sugar Creek and Millersburg, Ohio to visit the cheese chalets and bakeries. However, this year we thought we would stay overnight. We stumbled across The Barn Inn online and to our luck, they had a VIP room available. When we arrived, we felt as if we were home. The Barn Inn was so peaceful, tranquil, and beautiful! The innkeepers, Loretta and Paul were so welcoming and so informative about the Amish and Menonite communities. They shared personal stories and answered any questions that we may have had. As for the breakfast they cooked, it was fantastic! Lastly, the room that we stayed in was beautiful! It had such a relaxing feel and was very clean! So, I would definately recommend this to anyone!!! I know we will definately be back to stay at The Barn Inn! Thanks Loretta and Paul for a relaxing stay!
5 on July 12, 2011
Needing a stress free time away, my husband and I booked a room at the Barn Inn. Never having stayed there before, nor having known anything about the inn, we booked our room anyways. We are so thankful we did. Our stay was definitely stress free and just what we needed. Loretta and Paul immediately made us feel at "home" and asked what our goals were for our stay. Once we shared our goals, they found ways to meet them with ease, as a result of having everything so organized at the inn. During out stay, we were treated with goodies and care that far exceeded our expectations. We are already planning another trip in just a few months at the inn. I can say that this will become a place we stay at as much as we can.
5 on July 08, 2011
The Inn Keeper, Loretta greeted us by name, outside, even opened our car door and helped us in. the rooms were so warm, inviting and cozy, the grounds were beautiful with flowers and garden decor, and the breakfast was wonderful!! I recommend this place to all my friends!!

Outstanding getaway, excellent foot, fine high class and clean rooms spacious rooms, excellent breakfast, informational about the area sharing during breakfast very helpful with shopping and seeing area. Will visit again in the future. Requested from Loretta if there was fine dining to celebrate 25th wedding anniversary and recommend the Honey Inn food and staff was excellent 5 star dining by reservation only she called and made reservation for us. Fabulous getaway. THANK YOU!!!!!
5 on July 02, 2011
We enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Barn. It was beautiful, cozy and just plain great. We would not hesitate to return again if the opportunity arises. Loretta and the staff were very helpful and so gracious to us. Larry and Kathy Sexauer, Alliance, OH
5 on July 02, 2011
My wife and I visit Amish country once a year. We can't imagine staying anywhere other than the Barn Inn. Loretta and Paul are the perfect hosts. The breakfast is fantastic and the rooms immaculate.
5 on July 02, 2011
This was my first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. This Inn is a breathtaking experience. It is exquisitely decorated and the relaxing, at home atmosphere is the best. Loretta detailed places to go, along with directions to those places, with a background of the families at some of the places we decided to visit. You will be relaxed and refreshed when you leave. Alan and Roxanne Hillard
5 on June 29, 2011
We stayed at the Barn Inn for 2 nights in the French Country room. This was a lovely place to stay. Loretta couldn't have been nicer ~ and her breakfasts are outstanding. We appreciated all of the information about Amish country that Loretta shared at breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer!
4.6 on June 28, 2011
celebrating our 35th anniversary a the Barn Inn was very nice it made the time in Holmes County very pleasant The view was wonderful. Very relaxing.
5 on June 27, 2011
Made reservations on advice of friends. Everyone was very friendly, greeted us warmly and was very knowledgeble about the area. Food was delicious. Enjoyed Loretta's morning talks, her sharing of the customs and history of the people in the area. Our room was nicely decorated and we really enjoyed sitting on the "back porch". Would highly recommend The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast.
5 on June 27, 2011
Only place where you relax as soon as you arrive. Atmosphere is peaceful and soothing- like staying with your best friend.
5 on June 27, 2011
Wonderful breakfast and Loretta provided us with her favorite places to visit and a lot of information about the Amish community. Our room was lovely, as was the rest of the inn.
4.6 on June 25, 2011
Our visit at The Barn Inn, Millersburg, Ohio was wonderful. We found it beautiful, comfortable, peaceful! The only complaint we have - the bed pillows at the Gehrig House are flat).
5 on June 23, 2011
Loretta is the perfect hostess. She makes her guests feel welcome and at home. Her knowledge of the area which she shares with her guests is priceless. Breakfast was creative and delicious, and our room was delightful. This is truly a perfect get-a-way place to stay.
5 on June 23, 2011
Very easy to locate, outstanding hospitality and home cooked breakfast. The rooms are decorated with precise detail and very clean. The Innkeepers are very friendly, knowledgeable, very happy to have you come back. This is our third visit and this time we brought a couple new to the area. WOW is all they could say! We are planning to bring another couple back real soon!
5 on June 20, 2011
Our two night stay was a delight. Hosts Paul and Loretta went out of their way to make us feel welcome, like kings and queens. Their hospitality was outstanding, their gift of hospitality was demonstrated time and time again. Friendly, caring, full of love, generous, humorous, lots of charisma. Shared their lives with us over hot breakfast, excellent homemade goodies. Pointed out local places to tour and provided directions to get there. Gave insight and history into the area in their breakfast presentations. Learned to much about Amish culture from them. Suggested local restaurants that were excellent and reasonably priced! Would go back again and again because of Paul and Loretta!
3.4 on June 20, 2011
our family enjoyed the quiet country atmosphere coupled with superb bed and breakfast experience which is our 1st one. Loretta and Paul were xcellent hosts.felt at home.the whole Amish country experience was absolutely great which is also our 1st .we have great respect for the Amish and their traditions.
4.6 on June 19, 2011
We enjoyed our visit immensely. We stayed in the two bedroom unit and it was very comfortable and homey. We would recommend it very highly! Thank you for a great getaway!
5 on June 18, 2011
A wonderful peaceful and quiet place to spend time with the one you love for life. Everything perfect, the room, the hospitality, and especially the breakfast in the morning. Our hostess also gave an informative talk on the Amish and points of interest in the area. Do visit this Bed and Breakfast soon. We will be back. Jan & Dale Locke
4.6 on June 18, 2011
The Barn Inn is a very well maintained B&B! The grounds, rooms, food, service and area information was terrrific. The home is tastefully decorated and blends well with the community. We enjoyed the few livestock on site; goats, sheep, alpaca. The wooded area across the bridge and creek is very nice. I especially took notice of the metal and glass chandelier hanging in the wooden gazebo with a large fluffy birds nest in it. Quite a contrast of elements! We were very happy with our choice of this B&B. Thank you!
4.6 on June 17, 2011
Our room was wonderful! The location is in the countryside with a beautiful view. The breakfast each morning was great! Loretta is a wonderful host and gave us a great list of places to see as well as info about the area. We were able to see Holmes County and meet local people thanks to Loretta's expert guidance and suggestions. We will definitely recommend them to our friends. A wonderful place to stay!
5 on June 17, 2011
We were totally satisfied with the room, cleanliness, and service. It is by far the best B & B we've ever stayed at. Looking for to another trip to the Barn Inn...
5 on June 16, 2011
Loretta was great. Food was great. We visited some of the places that Loretta suggested, out of the way but much more informative of the area. Room was beautiful, way beyond our expectations. We explored the beautiful grounds as well. We will be back and will be at the Barn Inn.
4.6 on June 15, 2011
We stayed in the Innkeeper's Retreat suite and it was delightful, as was the rest of the inn, the walk through the woods, and even the llama (though she had no interest in visiting with me). Even better were the talks our hostess, Loretta, gave at breakfast. Not only did she give us tips on places to visit that appealed to our love of history, and where to get the best deals and meals. She also shared lots of information and stories about Amish and Mennonite history and culture. The Barn Inn is definitely an inn we'd like to visit again.
5 on June 15, 2011
My husband and I were due a little time for ourselves. We had both been busy working at our jobs and at home. We decided to take a weekend for ourselves and visit Amish Country and stay in the Barn Inn B&B. We were delighted with our clean, charming room and the peace and quiet. Paul and Loretta are such wonderful hosts and make you feel so comfortable and at ease. We can't wait to go back!
4.6 on June 13, 2011
My husband surprised me with a Birthday Getaway from Columbus Ohio. It was a perfect distance to Amish Country, I felt like I was on a different planet! Lorretta helped us figure out our day plans. Her B&B was immaculate! She had a cake in our room for my special day and the room was beautiful! We truly had a glorious time!
5 on June 12, 2011
The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast was a fantastic place to stay while visiting Holmes County. The atmosphere is comfortable, peaceful, and the owners make you feel at home. I would definately recommend this location to all!
5 on June 12, 2011
Our stay at the Our stay at The Barm Inn was wonderful. It was like a home away from home. It was close to all the places we wanted to go and see. Loretta always made up welcome and shared a lot of information about the Omish people. The breakfast every morning was very good. Thank you for a wonderful 5 days.
4.6 on June 12, 2011
Our stay at The Barn Inn was my husband and I first experience with a Bed & Breakfast. We are extremely happy and more than satisfied with our experience!!! The Barn Inn is located in a nice quite country setting, within 5 mins of all the shops. Loretta (the owner/innkeeper) was very knowledgeable, helpful and kind! Thank You! We will definitely stay again!!
4.6 on June 11, 2011
This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and because of this experience it will not be our last. We really enjoyed it.
4.2 on June 10, 2011
Every year for our anniversary my husband and I pick a B&B, usually off the beaten path, to escape for a few days. Our friends totally make fun of us for this - they have no idea what they're missing - especially this year when we chose The Barn Inn B&B. It was hands down the best one we have been to yet. We loved the room, the setting, our host and the other guests. (We exchanged contact info with some quests from Georgia - we've never done that before but totally enjoyed our new southern friends.) We also enjoyed the Amish surroundings and many antique stores. Would highly recommend a stay here if you have the opportunity.
4.4 on June 07, 2011
The Barn Inn is SO CLEAN. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms and it fit our need very well. All rooms have a door into the common area or an inside hallway and a door to the back porch area. The common ares is clean, open and inviting. The porch area has chairs for sitting and it faces the wooded area of the property. It is a beautiful setting. There ia a short path way that you can walk back into the woods and a foot bridge over a creek, a very pretty area. Loretta and Paul were very helpful and very knowledgable of the area. After they told us what there was to do and where there was to go, we realized we did not allow ourselves enough time to spend in the area. The food was outstanding and Paul makes a very good waiter! They have a Llama and some sheep on the property. It was a great experience.
3.4 on June 03, 2011
I can see why The Barn Inn is rated #1 in the area-the location is perfect for visiting the different towns, the accomodations were wonderful, the breakfasts are fantastic and Loretta was our own personal tour planner. My friend and I wanted to experience Amish country, and Loretta provided so much useful information and suggestions that we truly got to have a look into the lifestyle and culture of the area. We spent some time in the "commercial" shops but really focused on visits to local homes offering baskets, gifts, and tours. We got to meet and talk with very friendly, welcoming Amish families. If it had not been for Loretta, we would not have known about these unadvertised homes we visited, and we would have come away knowing only the commercial side rather than the "behind the scenes" side of the area. We stayed in The Gehrig House next to The Barn and it was perfect for us with common living areas and 2 bedrooms. I would definately stay at The Barn Inn if I make a return visit to the area.
4.8 on June 03, 2011
We really enjoyed our stay at "The Barn Inn B&B". it's located in the quiet country side outside on Millersburg yet close to other area attractions and towns. The food, service and room was perfect. The renovation of the old barn was beautiful. We will be returning here again soon. The hospitality was just great! We've been recommending this place to all our friends and family since our return home.

Though our stay was short, it was certainly unforgettable. From the moment we walked in the door, we treated like family. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. The innkeeper was extremely friendly and offered us many suggestions of places to go and things to do in the area. The setting was gorgeous and the inn was perfectly clean. What a wonderful place!
4.6 on May 28, 2011
We loved the room! It was very warm & comfortable. We had everything we needed and then some. I would recomend The Barn Inn to anyone that was interested in staying in Holmes Cty. The price was a little high for us, but, we were doing something special for our anniversary. We would probably stay there again. The breakfast was fantastic and our hostess, Loretta was very informative about the community and where to find great deals. Thank You so much for your wonderful hospitality. Woody & Linda
5 on May 27, 2011
This was the first time we've visited a B&B, and we were certainly not disappointed with the Barn Inn. Loretta was kind, friendly and shared her knowledge with us about the area. This place was absolutely beautiful and we plan on coming back here at least once a year! The rooms were spotless, and the breakfast was divine! Worth every penny.
5 on May 27, 2011
This is a wonderful location to stay for day trips. The owners are a great couple and are very informative with places to see and places to go in the area. The history given during the wonderful breakfast is priceless. We would stay again and again.
5 on May 26, 2011
We found out the the Barn Inn was built by the Amish and the craftmanship is excellent. The breakfast was very good and our Innkeeper gave everyone information of local places to visit. We plan on stopping again.
5 on May 24, 2011
This is the second time we have had the pleasure of staying at The Barn. Each time we stay it is a learning experience. Loretta is very knowledgeable about the Amish and their lifestyles. We will continue to stay there and enjoy everything there is around us.
5 on May 23, 2011
Our stay at THE BARN was like coming home! Paul and Loretta are so WELCOMING. We've been staying at THE BARN for at least 10 years and every visit we come away with such SPECIAL FEELINGS. Our breakfasts are ALWAYS DELICIOUS and Loretta always tells everyone what is going on in the area with directions so as not top get lost. We've been BLESSED to have found this MAGICAL B & B!!!!
4.6 on May 23, 2011
We enjoyed our weekend at The Barn Inn. It is located in the heart of Amish country. We really enjoyed Loretta's informational talks every morning during breakfast. She has a lot of knowledge about the area and the Amish. We will be recommending this inn to everyone and will be returning ourselves!
4.4 on May 23, 2011
I visited Amish Country for a weekend getaway and had the most wonderful time at The Barn Inn. Everything about it was comfortable and cozy. Loretta and Paul (innkeepers) are so sweet and knowledgeable - they make you feel right at home from the get-go. Just a wonderful experience all-around. I can't wait to get back!
5 on May 22, 2011
The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast is absolutely beautiful. It was a very nice relaxing stay at the inn which was located in a very quiet country area but close to many differant tourist activities. Paul and Loretta were wonderful hosts and made our stay feel like a home away from home. Breakfast was delicious and followed each morning by Loretta telling about some of her favorite places to visit and giving a short explination of some of the local culture. I learned quite a bit about the local Amish culture just by listening to her in the morning. We got to visit a lot of things that we would not have otherwise thought of or found were it not for Loretta's suggestions. Our room was gorgeous and a very comfortable place to come back to after a day of touring the area. I have already reccomended this place to my friends and family. We cannot wait to get to go back again!!! Trish and Dustin May 22nd 2011

A very nice place to stay in the country with great people and service
4.8 on May 16, 2011
My wife and I have stayed here twice before while visiting the Amish country and this experience was as wonderful as the others. Loretta and Paul are fantastic hosts and very knowledgeable about the Amish life style and happenings in the area. The breakfast is incredible! If you don't go away stuffed it's your own fault. The Barn Inn is not so close to town that you feel like you are in the middle of things, but close enough to the attractions to make them very easy to get to. The only thing I would like to see improved on would be the tv's upgraded, but they work just fine for all the longer we stayed in our room. If you are considering coming to this beautiful area and experience the Amish lifestyle this is the place you want to stay at.
5 on May 14, 2011
This was our first visit to The Barn Inn and I can't say enough about the warm and inviting atmosphere. Paul and Loretta were so friendly and helpful with the information they provided us. The breakfast - oh my gosh - delicious. We will definitely come again. Great Job !!!
5 on May 11, 2011
I planned this trip as a surprise to my mom, sister, aunt and niece. They had no idea where they were going. I sent them clues were we were going and they still did not know. When we arrived at The Barn Inn we were all amazed and I even knew where we were going. What a beautiful place. The surroundings and the inn itself. Paul and Loretta were amazing. They got it right when they created this special place. I would highly recommend staying here and seeing the culture. By the way, my family really enjoyed the trip. Thank you, Tracy Bridges Middletown, Ohio
5 on May 10, 2011
Once again Paul and Loretta provided a great experience for us. We have stayed at many B&B's but ALWAYS judge them by the Barn Inn's standards. We always feel welcome and have never been disappointed. You will not find better in Amish country.

Very comfortable and great food. Great ideas for area day trips.
4.8 on May 10, 2011

Was suprised to find no bureau for clothes storage and didn't like the 2 faucet sink. Other than that everything else was outstanding. Would recomend the Barn Inn very highly.
5 on May 08, 2011
Everything was just beautiful. We would highly recommend you to all of our friends. It was very quaint and very relaxing. The view of everything was beautiful. The speech that Loretta gave was very informative. When we come back we are planning to stay for two days to relax and enjoy the Inn.
5 on May 08, 2011
The innkeepers did more than just help us keep to our schedule. Loretta gave "talks" every evening to help us understand "amish" living. The breakfasts were scrumptious and never ending. We stayed in the Fred Gehrig house and it felt like "home". My family will return for a stay and visit some more of Loretta's recommendations.
4.0 on May 03, 2011
We enjoyed our stay very much . The Coblentz's were extremely loving and really made us feel relaxed and at home. The setting in the hills of Holmes county is breathtaking and the information we were given on what to see really topped off our visit. Also the food itself would be reason enough to go back, it was delicious.
5 on May 03, 2011
Everything at The Barn Inn was outstanding. We'd go back.

best part of stay was the innkeepers extensive knowledge of the amish culture. often you want to get away from the tourist traps and really get to see how what makes the culture really work. paul and loretta help you do that, and see some really out of the way places and help people, too!

This is the friendliest place to vist. The hostess and host are the greatest. From the huge great room for gatering or playing games to the fantastic breakfasts that are served. It does not get any better.

On the positive side, the Barn is centrally located, quaint and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was well equipped. Amenities outside the room included a soda machine, ice, tea, microwave, popcorn and a nice selection of movies you could play in your room. On the other hand, there were several shortcomings. For instance we stayed in the Renaissance room, one of the premier suites, only to be constantly disturbed by the ice and soda machine which were directly outside our door. In addition, the room air conditioner was incapable of maintaining a comfortable temperature. You could set it for 70, leave for the day and the temperature would drop from 76 to 73... The cold food and pastries were tasty and of good quality however, the cooked food was not fresh and almost seemed to have been previously frozen. Breakfast was under the direction of one of the inn keepers. In other words, you were literally told where to sit. It did not feel like you were paying $225 night for comfort and pampering.
Thank you for your stay and response. For clarification, guests typically have gotten their ice by 9:30 to 10 p.m. Very little sound can be heard from the ice machine, and no one else has ever complained of hearing it. We have other VIP Suites away from the ice machine, if that is a problem. You did not mention if you ran the fireplace or not. We turned off the pilot; perhaps it made the room too warm (since it's warmer outside). Without the pilot, the AC can easily cool down the room. Food is made fresh daily and where we receive the most compliments. In regard to seating, most restaurants seat people. We do have a table for two that people occasionally request when they see our dining room. You did not mention a preference. We must plan our seating to accommodate parties that are together, otherwise we do have some flexibility, and certainly would have seated accordingly.

My friend and I really enjoyed the hospitality of the Coblentz's. They made our stay a very relaxing and fun time. We also enjoyed the wonderful and informitive stories that they shared during breakfast. They are very knowledable about the area and culture. We will definatly be returning!

Extremely peaceful and quiet! We had a wonderful time and hope to visit again in the near future. Would highly recommend the Barn Inn!

Loretta was very informative about the community and the life style of the Amish. She even told us about a family in need and strongly suggested that if we were in the area and needed to purchase a woven basket, it would help the family as their dairy cows became diseased. The nine children in this family were just as interested in us as we were in them. Loretta has some beautiful quilts and great suggestions for quilt stores. It was a very enjoyable visit.

This is a very homey place and the people who run it are very hospitable. The breakfasts are wonderful. You are given a lot of information about the Amish people in the area. The rooms are decorated very tastefully. It was a wonderful experience for me. I would recommend it highly.
4.6 on April 23, 2011
My wife and I decided to stay here after hearing a frind talk about it. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Loretta talked about her Amish experience and had a handout of places to see. We'll be back.

This was the best B&B we've stayed in. The hospitality and breakfast was outstanding. The innkeepers went out of their way to make our breakfast fantastic. I would highly recommend this B&B and would love to return.
5 on April 22, 2011
Loretta always does a wonderful job - seeing to the needs of every guest. The Inn is wonderful, comfortable, beautiful and peaceful. A very relaxed and rejuvinating experience. Her home made breakfast was outstanding as usual. She gives a wonderful talk about the area and its' people and had a hand out that is very helpful for visiting local attractions, including wonderful directions. We will definately be back for many more visits.
5 on April 21, 2011
What a wonderful place to stay! Reasonably priced, very clean and "homey," great innkeepers and hospitality! The days we were there, we could look out the window of the inn and watch the Amish farmers tilling and planting their field right across the road from us. A bonus was innkeeper Loretta's information and question-answering time after breakfast...being raised Amish and from the community, she gave us a lot of tips and some destinations that most tourists would never know about. We would definitely stay there again!
4.4 on April 18, 2011
Loretta and Paul are wonderful hosts , their history about the area and their experiences living with the Amish , made for a Wonderful weekend. Delicious breakfast too . We will definitely be back , Thanks for everything , Leo and Karen

This was my second visit to The Barn Inn and it was just as pleasant, comfortable, and homey as I remembered my first visit being. The breakfasts are very good, the rooms very clean. As it is out in the country, it is very peacful and quiet. I can't wait until I can go back for the third time.
4.2 on April 14, 2011
The quarters and main lobby are a renovated barn that exceedes all expectations. No ruffing it here. The hospitality and Breakfast was about as good as I have experence in B&B. Not hard to see why this place is so highly rated. Since this was our 1st stay, we were booked into a standard room. Nicely adorned with linens/bed that made a night's sleep a pleasure. After touring the "suites" , it readilly apparent the upcharge would be worth the additional cost. Overall , a 9 out of 10

My husband and I received a gift certificate for a 2 night stay. What a pleasant experience we had. Loretta & Paul make you feel like family. The Inn is decorated in so many heirlooms from the original land owners. Loretta was very informative about the Amish culture and guided us to several amish homes where we could purchase their handmade products. We truly enjoyed our visit and enjoyed staying on the backroads getting to know the Amish better. The food was excellent and in spite of the cold Spring weather it was joyful at The Barn Inn. Thanks for a splendid time and we will come again!
5 on April 10, 2011
This was our first experience with a B&B and it far exceeded our expectations (and more than quelled our fears). The hosts could not have been more accommodating yet were not overbearing. We especially liked having our own entrance to the outside and a private bath. The breakfast was delicious and very filling each morning. The best part was the information about the area, Amish heritage, and off-the-beaten path places to visit. It was a great weekend and will keep us considering B&B's as future destinations.

From the moment that we walked in the door the service was excellent. The inn keepers, Paul and Loretta made us feel comfortable and we enjoyed a relaxing weekend in Ohio Amish Country. The attention to detail displayed in the rennovations to the barn were excellent. Paul and Loretta's willingness to share their knowledge of the area and personal stories made this well worth the trip. We also enjoyed an excellent breakfast each morning. I would recommend this experience to anyone wishing to have a relaxing weekend or wanting to learn more abut this interesting area.

We try to get to The Barn Inn at least once a year. After staying at other bed and breakfasts, we found the one we love. Everything about the stays at the barn are great. Paul and Lorreta are the best. They make you feel like family. The breakfasts are always great, with Lorreta adding some new surprises each time. Thank you for having a place like this we can get away to, to relax and have fun.
4.6 on April 05, 2011
This place was lovely. The owners were incredibly nice and knowledgeable about the area and the Amish. The breakfasts were great, service was great, and the rooms were very cozy and very clean! My only complaint is that the bed was a little too hard, but other than that, I really enjoyed this place and would highly recommend!
5 on April 04, 2011
The rooms are fabulous. It was our third time visiting the Barn and will continue to return. Paul and Loretta are the best we have ever met.
5 on April 03, 2011
We were welcomed with a homey atmosphere. The greeter was very courteous and guided us to our room. The room was very clean and welcoming. We enjoy the fellowship with the innkeepers and other patrons. We will be back.
5 on April 03, 2011
We just spent a relaxing time in Amish Country while staying at The Barn Inn. Our room was cozy and inviting. The breakfasts were yummy. I needed a little change in the menu due to GF diet and the Innkeepers made the effort, which was much appreciated. At breakfast we were all given a list of places with information, that we could add to our own, if we'd like. It will be a resource that I will use for further trips. If you're looking for a sweet spot to spend some time in while exploring Amish Country, check them out!
5 on April 02, 2011
This was our second stay at The Barn Inn. The hospitality, cleanliness and great breakfasts brought us back! Loretta and Paul will make your stay very enjoyable. Their knowledge and information about the Amish way of life is an added bonus. If headed to Amish country, this is an excellent choice for accommodations. Liz and Stephen London, Ohio

We visited The Barn Inn In March to escape cabin fever. It's location was very convenient to surrounding activities and restaurants. The room was pleasant , clean, and quiet. The beds were king and queen size, as well as comfortable. Loretta,s breakfasts were delicious and so were her snacks that she baked fresh everyday.

My wife and I travel around the world for both business and pleasure and we couldn't ask for a better place to forget about work, relax and then explore the lovely countryside around The Barn Inn. As all the other reviewers have commented, Loretta and Paul's presence and guidance ensured an interesting and pleasant two day experience in Amish country.
4.6 on March 21, 2011
I was concerned about the loudness of the common room, however the folks wrapped it up around eleven which I appreciated.
5 on March 15, 2011
I came at the last minute for a little getaway from taking care of my mom. (She has Alzheimer's and dementia) The Barn Inn was just what the doctor ordered! I could relax, go explore Amish Country, or just sit and talk. I felt like Loretta and Paul were old friends I had never met. They were delightful.
4.6 on March 15, 2011
Our stay at the Barn Inn was wonderful as the room and food were really great. But what added the most to the enjoyment was the keen insight into the Amish community that Loretta and Paul were able to provide. Loretta was raised Amish and they both still have close ties to the community. They also made good recommendations on places for us to visit, including on Sunday when the Amish businesses were closed. Thanks Loretta & Paul!
5 on March 15, 2011
Great stay. Very nice rooms; breakfast was great. Both Paul and Loretta are friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the brief history of the Amish. For bicycle riders, there is a first class bicycle shop within two miles of the Barn called Raber's bike shop
4.4 on March 14, 2011
This was my first time going to a bed & breakfast so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was great! The room was so cute....and clean. Loretta and Paul were very welcoming. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful and learning about the Amish was really neat. It almost felt like staying at grandma's house, that's how cozy it was. I definately recommend staying here. We will be staying again ourselves.

Loretta and Paul create a cozy, but beautifully appointed B&B in Holmes County. The Barn Inn provides a wonderful getaway where special occasion meets the comforts of home!

We've been holding our Stitching Retreat at The Barn Inn for more than 10 years. It just keeps getting better. It's like a family reunion. Paul and Loretta leave nothing to chance. Loretta manages to surpass the previous year's hospitality and the breakfasts are unmatched anywhere. The only downside is having to leave to go home. They deserve a 10-star rating!!!

What an awsome place to stay during the christmas holidays! The Inkeepers make you feel extremely welcome and the staff as well. Lots of local knowledge and what a charming barn.

My husband and I decided to take an overnight get away. I went on line for places to stay in Amish and found The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast. It looked like a quiet and cozy place to stay. What a wonderful and beautiful place to stay! We were greeted by Paul and Loretta-the Inn Keepers. They showed us around the Inn and took us to our room-the French Country. Our room was perfect! Warm and relaxing! In the morning we awoke to the smells of breakfast cooking! Breakfast was very tasty and filling. After breakfast, Loretta gave us a little presentation on the Amish culture and some must see places to visit while there. Over all we had a wonderful stay and plan on returning in the summer for our Anniversary!

My wife and I just stayed two nights at the Barn Inn, Millersburg, Ohio. We stayed in the Victorian Romance room. We had excellent accomodations; the room was very clean and neat. We received excellent service of our room. And, you cannot find a better breakfast than the one provided by these inn keeprs, Paul and Loretta Coblentz. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
5 on February 18, 2011
Our two night stay exceeded our expectations in every way. The breakfast was outstanding both mornings. We really appreciated the care, openness, and time Loretta took in talking about the Amish culture, her families background, and all the questions we had. It was a great 2 nights and we hope we can get back soon.

January 28-30, 2011 We enjoyed our stay at the Barn Inn immensely! Our hosts, Loretta and Paul, were so friendly and helpful. The room was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and had nice soaps, shampoos, and plenty of towels already in the room. The breakfast was huge, and delicious – home style cooking at its best! It was the perfect start to our day of exploring the Ohio Amish Countryside. After breakfast, the hosts give you a list of places that are open that day (lots of places are closed Sunday, so thank goodness for their list!) and will recommend their favorites, and are happy to provide directions if you need them. Our favorite stop was to buy baskets from an Amish home – we never would have done that if it were not for the recommendation and directions – the experience is so much better than buying a basket from an unknown maker at a franchised store! To sum it up, this is a 5 star establishment in all categories and we had a fabulous and relaxing stay – just what we needed!
3.2 on February 17, 2011
We enjoyed our stay at "The Barn Inn B&B"; & gift basket (optional extra) was very, very nice. Buffet style breakfast was ok; but we much prefer breafast served individually to each guest at their table. This inn had an extra bonus of a short talk by innkeeper about surrouding Amish area & their way of life. Nice common area; but had to share with innkeeper. There were also too many warning signs in rooms & common areas - "don't do this or don't do that" type messages. Wall heater in our room was noisy & blew cold air across bed area. Complimentary evening snack was not too good; but each guest did receive a small jar of jam as they were leaving - nice touch. As a B&B on a scale of 1 to 10, we would rate The Barn as a 6 or 7.
4.6 on February 17, 2011
The innkeepers made us feel very comfortable and welcome. The food was outstanding and whole experience was wonderful. I will be going back to the Barn Inn again. Thanks for a wonderful time!

Just returned from Valentines weekend at The Barn Inn. Loved every minute! Owners Paul and Loretta were wonderful host/hostess and served delicious breakfast in a clean homey environment. Gave wonderful insight to Amish/Mennonite culture and also provided special directions to special places to go that we had not visited despite traveling to Amish Country for about 15 years.
5 on February 13, 2011
Paul and Loretta have a very nice way of presenting the Amish culture to their guests. They also give information about the attractions close by. Their neighbors who may sell things our highlighlted and information is given about them so their guests can support them if they so choose. The breakfast is exceptional and their hospitally, knowledge of the area and Amish people is a definite asset to staying at The Barn Inn. The cleanliness and room decorating make this a vwey enjoyable place to stay. We have stayed at many B&B's in the area and The Barn Inn is the best we have experienced.
5 on February 13, 2011
We love The Barn Inn!! Loretta and Paul are great. We meet a lot of great people here. The food and service is excellent. We enjoy the quietness and learning the Amish way from stories by Loretta and Paul. They are always ready to accomodate. We will return again and again!

My husband and I went for a one night stay as a short get away from our busy lives in Columbus. This place exceeded our expectations on every level! The room was gorgeous. Loved the fireplace. And of course the chandelier over the jacuzzi was a nice touch. Breakfast the next morning, also incredible. We would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast and we will certainly be back there again. (P.S. We stayed in the Renaissance room)

Having spent much time and many stays in Amish country the past eight years, we found The Barn Inn to be the "best". We have stayed at motels, inns, and other bed and breakfast.

The Barn Inn was a comfortable place to be for a much needed getaway in the middle of winter. It was nestled in the heart of Amish country and privately placed with a beautifully scenic view. Our room was vintagely decorated and spacious with a corner fireplace. It was a perfect room for us and provided a delightfully restful atmosphere but a little overpriced for the season. The gourmet breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Paul & Loretta were personable and informative concerning the Amish culture and the community surrounding them and provided a list of unusual places to visit. They and the staff were friendly and professional and answered all our inquiries. We had an amazing experience and would recommend The Barn Inn to all our friends and family.

My wife and I like to take a weekend vacation in January after the busy holiday season. The Barn Inn web site was extensive and very informative. After a brief study of the property, I decided this was the place for us and booked a two night stay in the "Memory Lane" room. The room was beyond our expectations including a Jacuzzi tub for two and gas fireplace. The front room is impressive with high ceilings and country decorations. The whole place is filled with antiques and unique designs. The food was just the best country cooking ever! Our Host and Hostess took the time to suggest local attractions and shared about their personal lives. We will be planning another trip to the Barn Inn soon and recommend it as a must stay destination.
4.6 on January 19, 2011
We had an opportunity to stay at the Inn Jan 14th and 15th with friends and family for a winter get away. The Inn keepers were helpful and the service they provided us was outstanding. No negative experiences and we plan to stay again!

Great rooms, great food, great location, superb service. Inn Keepers Paul and Loretta are truly excellent hosts and have created a B&B way above the norm. Their many added personal touches make this the place to stay when visiting Amish country.

We stayed 2 nights. Paul and Loretta were extremely professional and friendly. The breakfasts were fantastic and plentiful. After breakfast each morning Paul and Loretta would tell about the Amish culture and make suggestions on places to go and things to do in the area. Having been raised Amish allowed them to give us first hand knowledge of the Amish lifestyle. We have been making the 3 hour trip to Amish country for several years and I have to say that we learned more and experienced more of the lifestyle than ever before thanks to Paul and Loretta. We highly recommend the Barn Inn and plan to go back. It truely is a great value.

My husband and I are from Punxsutawney, Pa. We just got back today (01/17/2011) from our weekend getaway at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast in Millersburg, Ohio. The ratings we gave for this gem was not enough. Wish we could have had higher ratings! We drove about 4 hours to get there and arrived at the Inn around 8pm because my husband had to work on Sat. Loretta and Paul Coblentz were there to greet us even though we came late. They both made us feel right at home. We had stayed in the "Memory Lane" room. It is the part of the newest wing of the Inn. Loretta showed us to our room and what a beautiful and exquisite room! The gas fireplace was cozy and warm, the bed divine, so soft and comfortable, hubby used the jaqcuzzi, he loved it! The bath made me feel like I was in Italy. The place was very clean and exceptionally quiet. Loretta and Paul were so hospitable. Loretta makes a mean oatmeal pancake that is out of this world! The vegetable quiche was also good. It still makes my mouth water thinking about it. Loretta is so informative on what is happening around town. Paul and Loretta shared stories about themselves and gave us printouts of what was open on that particular day. We stayed two nights. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank You Loretta and Paul for making our getaway weekend a special one. We will soon not forget. The Barn Inn is a must stay when you are in the area. We will certainly let our friends and family know of this diamond in the rough. Thanks again, Dave and Lynne

Living just an hour away, we don't often stay overnight when visiting Amish Country, but we decided to make a small vacation of this visit. We like to try new (to us) inns when we travel, and we chose The Barn Inn for this visit. Though we were there in the winner and couldn't fully appreciate all of he pleasantries of a visit to Holmes County, we enjoyed our stay at the inn and couldn't have wanted more. A unique asset for the inn is the information about the Amish provided by our innkeepers, the Coblentz'. They have lived the culture and spoke knowledgeably of it. Though I thought I knew a lot for being English, I still learned from them. An excellent inn and highly recommended.

It was our first visit to The Barn Inn but it definitely will not be our last. The accommodations, food, and hospitality were outstanding. Loretta and Paul were tremendous hosts which made for a very pleasant stay. The insight that Loretta provide on the Amish culture and history was extremely intersting. We have stayed at numerous bed and breakfasts throughout the US and Canada and The Bank Inn ranks among the best.

We stayed in one of their suites and, although it was more expensive than the other rooms, we would highly recommend staying in one of the suites. The food was outstanding and the owners very friendly and informative. We look forward to staying here again!
5 on January 02, 2011
We were blown away by the beauty and detail of our room...the bedding, the free-hand mural on the wall, the TV, the fridge! But above all was the involvement of the owners, Loretta and Paul! They gave us insight into the Amish that surround the Inn, and the businesses that were within a close proximity of the Inn. We enjoyed their company as well as making new friends and eating! The meals were beyond our expectations...there was plenty of food that was seasoned to perfection and it was home made, something you don't always get these days. From the cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit, eggs, potatoes and fresh sausage. Even the breads were not the normal white bread, they were pecan and raisin and wheat. What a great time we had. We look forward to our next bed and breakfast experience, but it will be hard to beat this wonderful time we experienced at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast! Loretta, you made sure to address every detail....even movies, popcorn and drinks if you wanted privacy in your room. Great time! We will be back to see you!

Stayed a night at the Barn Inn in the French Country room. Beautifully decorated in antiques, with whirlpool tub and gas fireplace. have stayed there before, and found the Inn consistently offering a personal touch by the Owners, a beautiful inn, and great breakfast. Have stayed in the Ohio Amish Counbtry area often in B&B's and Inn's in the area, and the Barn Inn offers the most in what a traveller appreciates in a unique stay in a very tranquil setting.

My husband and I were planning a weekend and found The Barn Inn by chance from a list of places to stay in Amish Country. Everything was so amazing! We were very glad to experience both comfort and luxury without losing genuine rural flavor. The local area was very busy with tourists, being the weekend after Thanksgiving. I was afraid our stay would end up being frantic and crowded as a result, but The Barn Inn provided the perfect atmosphere for a wonderful time "away" for my husband and I, a wonderful place removed from the hustle and bustle of bargain hunters in antique malls and quilt shops. We still enjoyed the flavor of Amish culture, got to appreciate the area, and purchased a few items to remember our time without having to be part of the touristy mob.

We had a very relaxing stay in the Vintage Rose Suite. Beautiful room, excellent service, and quiet atmosphere. Very clean rooms that make you feel right at home. Also, a delicious breakfast served in the morning. Look forward to a return visit!

The innkeeper was extremely gracious and helpful. Her talk at breakfast gave us so many good ideas on how to spend our day that we'll have to return many times to do everything we want to do. The setting of the inn is very peaceful and the breakfast was delicious.
4.2 on December 08, 2010
This was our first bed & breakfast experience. The accommodations and the service were top notch. Will definitely do B&B again. We would (and have) recommend The Barn to our friends & family!
4.8 on December 06, 2010
A romantic and relaxing getaway in a beautiful home. The breakfast was fabulous and the inn keepers were incredibly hospitable and shared lots of hints and tips on what to see and do in amish country. We will go back for sure!

Our stay at the Barn Inn was wonderful. Paul and Loretta were by far the most hospitable B&B Owners we have met. The Barn is beautiful and the rooms were comfortable and cozy.

Hello Paul and Lorettta, We will never forget our experience with you. We had such a restful and wonderful time. Your Inn was decorated so pretty, it took our breath away and the tree in the room was such a nice personal touch. Our thanks also for the diapers. Our daughter was excited, with triplets coming....diapers and formula is a little scary. We do hope to visit with you again. In the many visits to Amish Country, we never had that personal information that you shared. We loved it and hope to visit each one on the list in future visits. Thank you again so very much. Ray & Linda Amore

The stay was great! We had a wonderful time and we will be back.

Paul and Loretta are very warm and inviting hosts, and keep a great home. It was a pleasure to experience the food and atmosphere of this place. They truly have the Bed and Breakfast idea down to a T!
5 on November 28, 2010
This was my first time to stay at the Barn Inn and it was absolutely beautiful! I brought my sister who had never been to Holmes County before and I was so happy we decided to stay here! It made my sister's first visit to Amish country a weekend to remember! Loretta and Paul were so gracious! I have already told several friends about it and I will definately bring my husband for another stay!

Our first Thanksgiving Day away from home could not have been more enjoyable.From our checkin in the exceptionally appointed greatroom and comfortable room to the delicious breakfasts,Thanksgiving dinner, evening leftovers and the interesting and informative after meal topics presented by our hosts,we were excited to commit to a return visit.
4.6 on November 24, 2010
Short stay, extremely paisant,educative, inspirational. Our visit of the nearby Amish famaly was a unic experience. We will be back
4.8 on November 23, 2010
We were blessed to be able to stay only one night - but what a lovely experience we had. The Inn is outstanding in design, furnishings and yet you felt like you were visiting family. My friend had never experienced a B&B stay prior to this and was pleased by our stay. We are hoping and planning on returning in 2011 with our husbands and hopefully have a longer stay to enjoy the Inn, the hospitality of Loretta and the wonderful hospitality of the people in Ohio. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
5 on November 22, 2010
My sister and I stayed at The Barn Inn one night in November 2010 and will definitely be returning (hopefully with our husbands on our next trip!). Paul and Loretta Coblentz were very gracious hosts! The Inn was beautiful, words or pictures can not describe how beautiful it is. The entire Inn was spotless. The breakfast was delicious! Loretta and Paul gave us wonderful suggestions for places to visit. We were so busy visiting Amish family homes and buying beautiful baskets from them, we never even made it to shop in Berlin that day!!!!!! So, I guess we will HAVE to return to the Inn for a stay so we can visit Berlin this next time!
5 on November 21, 2010
Wonderful, relaxing weekend! Would definitely recommend!
4.6 on November 21, 2010
The Barn Inn is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. But the best part of our experience was Loretta's hospitality as well as her wonderful breakfast. We will certainly return to The Barn Inn every chance we get. Highly recommend it.

Excellent B&B. Rooms were very clean and spacious. It was a wonderful visit and one we will repeat I am sure many times.
4.6 on November 18, 2010
My husband booked one of the VIP rooms at the Barn Inn for my birthday. I have to say that the pictures on line do not do the Barn Inn justice, you really have to see it in person to appreciate all of the detail and care that went into the decor. Our host's Paul and Loretta made us feel so comfortable, they met and exceeded my every expectation. Breakfast was delicious, one morning Loretta made stuffed french toast, an egg casserole and locally made sausage add to that the fresh fruit cup, coffee and variety of juices, and we were set and ready for the rest of our day. We stayed in the Memory Lane suite and it was absolutely beautiful, I took so many pictures of just the room itself. If you are in Holmes County you have to stay at the Barn Inn, you will miss a truly wonderful experience if you stay anywhere else. Oh and don't forget to add on the "Spoiled Rotten" package to your room, we hadn't eaten dinner out in town and didn't need to. When we returned to our room that evening and saw the gift basket full of cheeses, crackers, chocolates, and cashews we knew we were all set. After our foot massage, Paul brought up a tray of hot hors d'oeurves, it was much more than we could eat. In all we had an amazing stay at the Barn Inn!!
4.0 on November 15, 2010
We rented the farmhouse and we were very pleased and satisfied. It was clean, everything needed for a comfortable weekend was supplied. The hosts were extremely friendly, helpful, and made us feel at home. We would certainly come back again.
5 on November 13, 2010
Loretta was very friendly, and gave a nice explanation of the different amish sects! She also gave us guidence on places to visit and eat!
5 on November 09, 2010
The Barn Inn is, by far, the best B&B! The room was great, the food was wonderful, and the hosts were exceptional. Paul & Loretta are the perfect couple to own a B&B. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We can not wait to stay again. You will not be disappointed!!!!!
5 on November 09, 2010
We stayed at The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast for my birthday and 14th wedding anniversary. We could not have asked for a more perfect weekend. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. Paul & Loretta are wonderful hosts and Loretta's talk was very informative. We will definitely make a return visit and will also tell our family and friends about it. Mark & Kim
4.6 on November 09, 2010
My husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary this past Saturday night at the Barn Inn... it was a fabulous stay! Our room was extra clean and there were lots of little touches to make the Inn special. We would stay there again!
5 on November 09, 2010
The Barn Inn offers coffees and a selection of teas with various desserts throughout the day. Breakfast included cheesey scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, the best sausage I have ever eaten, fresh fruit and juices, a berry cobbler, plus various breads, sperads and jellies. (I was so impressed with the quality of the food I asked Loretta if she had a cook book for sale that contained her recipes. She promised to work on that project!) At breakfast we were also provided with printed material regarding all the places to visit, farms that provide tours, stores, resturants, their hours of operation and directions on how to get there. If you are planning a vist to beautiful farm country, and are in need of a place to stay where you will be a welcomed guest, we highly recommend The Barn Inn. You will not be disappointed.

We needed a quiet getaway Inn and we certainly found it at the Barn Bed and Breakfast in Millersburg, OH. Thanks for a great time!
5 on November 08, 2010
The room was beautiful, and very clean.The food was great. Paul and Loretta were very helpful, and the area has many wonderful places to visit
5 on November 07, 2010
The room was a dream come true. We woke up early in the morning and turned on the fireplace. It was so romantic and cozy. I also was impressed with how clean the room and bathroom were. I felt like we were staying in a brand new room!
5 on November 06, 2010
The food was excellent and the talks in the morning about places to go was most informative.

The most impressive was the morning talks about things to see, places to go and a very formative lesson on the local culture.

Rooms were very nice. Extremely clean. Staff very helpful.
4.8 on November 01, 2010
My husband and I just stayed at The Barn Inn. I will just echo the previous raving reviews. Despite being Holmes County "frequent fliers", we really enjoyed Loretta's presentation on places not to be missed discovering somewhere new to us. Breakfast was wonderful especially the carrot cake pancakes with cream cheese topping. My only regret was not booking a room in the West wing as I am a light sleeper.
5 on November 01, 2010
My husband and I return the The Barn Inn, time after time, and it's a wonderful experience each time!!! We were lucky enough to share it this time with some longtime friends visiting from FL. They, also, were truly impressed with the whole experience!! The accomodations are always great, the food is AMAZING, and Loretta and Paul are the perfect hosts! They're so gracious and welcoming, and very imformative as to what is available in the area to see and do. We've stayed at over 30 B & Bs (all over the world), and The Barn Inn is one of the very best!!
4.8 on October 31, 2010
This is an amazing place in the middle of the Amish Country in Ohio. It is the best of both worlds. You have your privacy in a beautifully appointed room but, you have the owners, Loretta and Paul, who know the ins and outs of the Amish Community and share this with their patrons after an amazing home cooked meal each morning. We have travelled all over the world and would strongly recommend this wonderful experience.
5 on October 26, 2010
We had another wonderful stay at The Barn Inn this weekend and couldn't be happier that this wonderful B&B is so consistent in it's excellent service! We've been visiting Loretta and Paul's inn for over ten years and have never been disappointed. Every year just makes it feel homier to us. We can't wait to return next Fall! Debbie and Mike Arcaro
4.4 on October 26, 2010
very impressive inn.we would stay again very nice loacation.
5 on October 25, 2010
When we first walked into the room, it took our breathe away. Pictures or words can not tell how nice it really is. Loretta took the time to show us around and where everything is. Breakfast was way over the top too. While enjoying the best breakfast I have ever eaten, we were given a list of must see places and told in detail about them. Not just the main attractions, but off the beaten path places too which was very helpful on a weekend that the main places were jam packed. We can't wait to go again!
5 on October 24, 2010
That about sums it up. Absolutely wonderful. The food, the rooms, the beds, the service....and Loretta and Paul. I can't say enough to give the Barn Inn the credit it derserves. You must go and experience it for yourself!!!
5 on October 22, 2010
The food was excellent. We were there 2 days in October 2010. The room we had was very nice and had everything we needed. The Inn keepers were great and gave us a lot of information regarding the area and things to see and do. The other guest were very friendly, also, and we really enjoyed our time at The Barn Inn.
3.6 on October 22, 2010
Very nice, close to everything, good food. Enjoyed breakfast and very informative about local places to visit.
4.2 on October 20, 2010
My husband took me for a suprise visit to The Barn Inn. I was very pleased. It was so quaint and beautiful and decorated so nicely. Everything was very clean. The surroundings were peaceful and we enjoyed a little walk. It was fun to see animals in the fields and watch them. The Barn Inn has a special feel to it and you can tell that Paul and Loretta take pride in what they do and that they want their guests to have a really good time. I really liked how at breakfast Loretta gave us all a sheet of interesting places to think about visiting and explained some facts about the Amish and their traditions. The only thing I would suggest is that breakfast might be served a little later for people like me who are not early risers. Breakfast at 8:ooam was too early for me and I, of course was 15 minutes late. However, The Barn Inn is an excellent place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone. I also cannot wait to visit again.
We appreciate this wonderful review and wish to clarify breakfast time. Our breakfast dining service is open during the summer from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., in the winter, from 8:30 to 9:30. Guests may come as late as 9 a.m. or 9:30 depending on the season. Guests may come at the end of the ding hour and eat in the dining room or take a tray to their private guestroom. Obviously we did not explain that well enough for you; we have breakfast times posted in the dining room. Most people do want to be out in time for my "area information" time, which is always 1/2 hour after breakfast service begins. When we have fewer guests, we ask for their preferred serving time and have private seatings accordingly, and anytime, couples can request a later breakfast service. We are here to serve you, our guest.

Very excellent stay at the Barn Inn and Breakfast. Food fantastic for breakfast. Would definitely recommend
5 on October 19, 2010
Very Relaxing, and Paul and Loretta made us feel at home. My wife will be having major surgery on the 25th, and we needed this weekend to relax. Paul and Loretta made it happen. Thank You so much. We will return.
5 on October 19, 2010
The room was fanastic The room was fantastic, the food was really good. But one of the things that was very helpful was the talk that Loretta gave in the morning. It gave us an understanding of the culture and good places to go that we were never found on our own. The whole atmosphere of the BARN made it feel like when we came back in the evening that we were coming “home” not just to a place to stay.
5 on October 18, 2010
Paul and Lorreta were just outstanding people. We enjoyed the gatherings at breakfast and found the information very helpful and it made our stay more relaxing. Fred gave this to me as my birthday gift and I could not have asked for a better gift. Thank you for making my birthday the best.

Spent our anniversary night at the Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast. We stayed in the Memory Lane suite which was very nice. Totally enjoyed the informational breakfast in the morning with Loretta. Would recommend this Bed & Breakfast to family and friends.
5 on October 18, 2010
breakfast is homecooked and excellant. your host loretta is very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area . she will suggest many out of the way places to see that give you a real taste for the amish lifestyle. the location is beautiful and the bed and breakfast is very clean. there is a common area with a tv and tv in every room. we stay in the smaller rooms (camelot) and it is quite nice. loretta always has a baked treat to snack on and there is popcorn for those wanting salty. we have been staying there for over 10 years and come every fall when the leaves turn.see walthurs museum if you come. he was a genius in his field and it is very interesting. we have stayed at hotels , other b&b , and this our favorite. marc and vivian
5 on October 17, 2010
We had our family reunion in Millersberg, Ohio and after staying at The Barn Inn, I am dying to go back and have another taste of the innkeeper's generous (and not obtrusive) and genuine hospitality. We went to places we NEVER would have known about in Amish country and came home knowing we had been able to immerse ourselves in the area vs. going to tourist traps. The Inn is wonderful, beautiful and the only place I will ever stay when we go back.

The rooms were charming and clean but the neatest thing was the owners spoke to us as if we were family, introducing us to the people, culture and their beliefs.. a very informative pleasant experience.

A wonderful stay. Very relaxing, the common room is so inviting. We will surly tell our friends about this B&B
4.8 on October 13, 2010
Loretta and Paul helped so much in making this the perfect weekend away. Tips on where to go and how to stay away from the crowds were priceless. We will stay here again!
4.6 on October 11, 2010
My husband and I spent three nights at this beautiful, warm inn and loved it. Innkeepers Loretta and Paul were most helpful with their recommendations on where to find the unique Amish owned businesses off the beaten path. The whole atmosphere is serene and refreshing.
4.2 on October 11, 2010
My husband I recently stayed at the Barn Inn B&B for two nights. We could have stayed at a motel in the same area for the same rate but opted for the bed and breakfast and we are so glad we did!!! It was so relaxing and the barn was beautifully decorated and reminded us of staying in someones home. The food was delicious each morning and was sure a good way to start the day. Paul and Loretta were so welcoming and helpful with their suggestions of places to see. We already made reservations for next month when we have more vacation time!!!
4.6 on October 11, 2010
We stayed in the 2 bedroom "Innkeeper's Retreat" that has a kitchenette and sitting area. It was very nice and clean, as was the public areas of this B&B. Loretta and Paul served delicious breakfasts and are wonderful hosts. Breakfast is served at 8:00 and at 8:30, Loretta passes out a list and talks about places of interest to visit in the area, if you are interested. That was interesting and helpful. No need to search further - you will enjoy your stay here!
5 on October 09, 2010
My husband and I just spent 2 nights at the Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. The Inn was beautiful and very clean. The breakfast was wonderful, especially listening to Loretta telling all the places that we needed to visit. Very informant, and what a delightful person she was. Our room was wonderful including a jacuzzi tub, and a cozy fireplace. We would definitely would return for another romantic getaway.

Friendly and accomadating staff. Really appreciated the brief ntroduction to Amish life and area attractions after the breakfast. Would definitely stay at the Barn Inn again.

This was our first visit at the Barn Inn and we loved it! It is an absolutely picture perfect setting. Our room was beautiful and just so cozy! Loretta and Paul were so interesting to talk with and had many stories to tell. They were the perfect Innkeepers! Breakfasts were delicious. I can't think of one thing to change other than our time there was too short. Loretta and Paul directed us to the local places to visit as well as great places to eat. THey did not steer as wrong - each place we visited was wonderful! Can't wait to go again. Jenny and Marshall
5 on October 03, 2010
We spent three nights at The Barn Inn. We have stayed at several B&B's in Holmes County. This was our first at The Barn Inn, but I am sure not our last. The place is beautiful, the food delicious, and Loretta and Paul such gracious and infromative hosts.

My husband and I have stayed at this bed and breakfast four times! The property is maintained beautifully, the interior is decorated with lovely antiques and kept spotless and the innkeepers are wonderful people who love sharing this treasure with others. Thank you and we look forward to our next visit!
5 on October 02, 2010
The Barn Inn's wonderful Innkeepers, Paul and Loretta Coblentz, combined with the beautifully appointed rooms, the country setting, delicious breakfasts made for a very enjoyable stay. Loretta and Paul were so gracious in providing the perfect setting for our family reunion. They and their staff genuinely care about each guest's comfort. Loretta and Paul shared valuable historical and cultural information to increase our knowledge and enjoyment of the area. It was an experience we will treasure for years to come.
4.2 on October 01, 2010
Loretta and Paul have created an exceptional retreat at "The Barn". We especially enjoyed Loretta's informative talks after breakfast each morning. Her tips on places to visit in Amish country were spot on including finding the shopping values. And, her insights (from an insiders perspective) beat anything you will learn elsewhere about the amish and Mennonite beliefs, practices and traditions. We look forward to a return visit soon!
5 on October 01, 2010
Excellent experience on our first stay at The Barn Inn. Very clean and neat, rooms and food outstanding. Having a friendly and knowledgable innkeeper who provided us with advice and tips about where to go and what to see was an great asset and made our visit to Holmes County a trip to remember.

Wonderful introductory talks by our hostess giving us a feel for the Amish and guiding us to the best sites for shopping, dining, and seeing the Amish at home. Superb breakfasts.

We were most pleased with the knowledge the innkeepers had. They were extremely helpful in suggesting places to see, dine at, and explore. We loved our room and the space for us outside our door. It was a great experience.

We loved every minute of our stay at The Barn Inn. The interior was charmingly decorated and clean, the food was delicious, and the hosts were knowledgeable about the area and most helpful. We recommend it without hesitation.
4.6 on September 28, 2010
The mattress was too hard for me and after one night I was very stiff the next morning. We are early risers and we could not use the jazzuci tub that would have helped with the stiffness until after 7 am because of the noise and respect to other guests so that was a little disappointing. Otherwise, our stay was great. Thanks.
5 on September 27, 2010
Paul and Loretta are wonderful innkeepers and the breakfasts were wonderful plus the snacks Loretta had out in the afternoon. So restful and peaceful. We had the French Room and it was great.
5 on September 27, 2010
We loved the local traveling tips from our innkeeper. The Inn was exceptionally clean...rooms, grounds, patios. The food was incredibly delicious...and fun!! The anemities were fabulous! We were made to feel very welcome and right at home...luxuriously.
5 on September 27, 2010
Lovely, historic nature setting, quiet rooms, delightful innkeepers
5 on September 27, 2010
This Inn is set right in the middle of the most beautiful scenery I have ever traveled to. The inn is the biggest one I have ever seen yet you feel right at home. Our room was so Victorian and romantic that you loved coming in at the end of a day and just getting into the jacuzzi tub and relaxing with your spouse. Loretta and Paul are the inn keepers and she can cook like nobodies business! She makes carrot cake pancakes with her own special cream cheese sauce that is better than anything we have had at a five star restaurant. Their knowledge of the Amish and the culture is amazing and they sent us to the most interesting places. I think anyone who has never been to this part of the country should make this place a must. This Inn will exceed anyone's expectations and all the myths of the Amish will be gone and the truth will amaze you and make you start wondering about what really is important in your everyday life and in your family.
4.8 on September 26, 2010
This is the best B&B. The rooms are very nice and the serivce is great. The breakfast is out of this world. We have been back several times and every time we stay it has been wonderful. I would not think of going to any other B&B or hotel in the area.
4.2 on September 24, 2010
Great local knowledge by Loretta and Paul. In a closed in valley, so there are no scenic views, but if your looking for off the beaten path, you're looking at the right place.
5 on September 24, 2010
We had a lovely evening on the porch reading and watching Dolly Llama and her friends. The breakfast next morning was great and we appreciated all the information on the local area and the Amish.
4.6 on September 23, 2010
Enjoyed every minute of it. My wife and I had a great time. Bob & Martha Corwin

We were planning to visit Holmes County, Ohio for a few days and saw an ad for The Barn Inn and went on line to see the Inn and were very pleased so called for reservations. The Inn was wonderful and Loretta, the Inn Keeper was very gracious and gave us so much information about the area and what to do and also some of her favorite places to visit which were run by the Amish. The breakfasts were the best we have ever had, can't wait to return for another visit.
5 on September 22, 2010
The owners Paul & Loretta are absolutly wonderful. The breakfasts are fabulous. The Inn is spectacular. What a great place to stay. You couldn't ask for a better place.

Beautiful room, quiet surroundings, sumptuous breakfast and exceedingly pleasant hosts. They even gave our car a jump start when we had a dead battery the next morning and directed us to the nearest place to buy a new one.

We stayed at the inn with my sister and her hsuband for the Labor D ay weekend We had stayed once before at the inn and we wanted to bring them to Amish countryand to the inn so they could experience the relaxing atmosphere and tranquility of the country They are from Fla and they do not get to see the beauty of the country It did prove to be very relaxing and comfortable for them at the inn It was an excellent inn and we reccommend it to everyone looking for a peaceful and lovely place in the Amish country
5 on September 21, 2010
This was our third visit to The Barn Inn. Even though we have come to expect outstanding accomodations at the Barn, our expectations have always been exceeded by Paul and Loretta - truly excellent innkeepers.
4.2 on September 20, 2010
We were very pleased with our stay at The Barn Inn. Paul & Loretta Coblentz, the owners, made every effort to make their guests feel right at home.

EVERYTHING about our stay was WONDERFUL!!!! And THANKS so much for the information about what was in the area. The basket family were charming. So glad to make a purchase!!!

Never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast before and the was a great experience. Would recommend to anyone.
5 on September 18, 2010
On the way home we were already planning our next visit. We planned early dinners so we could go back and enjoy the evening at the "BARN". Treat yourself to this wonderful hide a way, and you too will be planning your next trip back. Georgie
4.2 on September 17, 2010
This was our first visit to the Barn Inn and it was great. Lorretta has so much knowledge of the Amish people and where to visit the Amish and buy there goods. We like the prayer before breakfast and that really starts your day off in a spiritual way. Make sure you visit the Millers where they make baskets. Paul, Lorretta husband was nice to visit with when is was around. Paul & Lorretta put a lot of work into the renovating the Barn Inn. We are planning on coming back next Sept. 2011 and staying at the Barn. OH Lorretta you make the most beautiful quilts.
4.8 on September 16, 2010
We really enjoyed our overnight stay at the Barn Inn. Everything was wonderful, the rooms were fantastic, and the breakfast was divine!!! Loretta, the inn keeper gives a 30 minute talk every night about the sites to see in the area. We found a wonderful Amish family that makes baskets and enjoyed meeting them and seeing their home and purchased 3 baskets for gifts. We intend to return next year and stay longer at the Barn Inn as we enjoyed it immensely. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay we highly recommend it. It was our first time staying at a B&B and it wont be our last.
4.6 on September 13, 2010
We have stayed in B&Bs in Ohio Amish country before, but Lorretta & Paul have the best advantage to being inn-keepers in the area because they were Amish. They gave us a long list of places to visit that weren't on the tourist maps and told us what to expect at each location. They also answered questions about Amish life with great compassion, instead of some of the cynical answers we received from other uninformed innkeepers. Their service was excellent (they'll even pour your coffee) as well as their hospitality. The inn is beautiful and very quiet with lots of history about the barn posted. We will definitely be staying again with our next trip to Amish country!
5 on September 12, 2010
Paul and Loretta were wonderful hosts. They make you feel very welcome. The food was great, breakfasts and snacks. During breakfast time Loretta shares and recommends places to visit and patronize various businesses. She shares a list of things to do while visiting. Very informative. We did visit places we had not been to in other visits to Holmes County. GREAT place to stay. Would recommend to others looking for a relaxing weekend.

We have been staying in B & B's for about 20 years and have never stayed anywhere as friendly as The Barn Inn. Loretta and Paul are excellent hosts. They have valuable knowledge about the Amish and the area they live in. Their suggestions of where to go and what to see made our short two day stay memorable. If we ever get a chance to return to Holms County, we will be staying at The Barn Inn B and B

This is a beautiful Inn in Ohio Amish Country. Rooms were well appointed, the Inn was nicely decorated and breakfast was great. The innkeepers are very knowledgeable of the area and provide great recommendations. Will be back!

I found The Barn Inn online and just from the pictures and reviews alone, felt it would be a nice place to stay. Well, it far exceeded the pictures and reviews! You really cannot understand and feel the warmth, the exquisite cuisine, the lovely decorating of each room, and most of all- the caring innkeepers, Loretta and Paul, until you have actually stayed a night, or two or three, or more! It is located on a secluded and very peaceful road, just minutes from Berlin and most any Amish-run establishments, homes, tours, etc. When you walk into The Barn Inn, you will definitely be pleased with the awesome spaciousness of the main lobby and the comfortable furniture will invite you to sit and relax and sip your coffee for a while:) We met several other couples while staying there. The ambience of the large lobby with it's high ceilings lends itself to relaxation in any form - whether talking to someone you've never met, or just sitting in the corner reading a newspaper or book, or watching television. We LOVED our room.......it became very evident that every tiny detail was very important to Loretta, our innkeeper. They will meet any need you have to the very best of their abilities. One thing I particularly enjoyed was the breakfast time. Loretta is an excellent cook and so you had a good variety of homemade foods to choose from. About half-way through breakfast, she gives you a lot of information about the Amish, their behaviors, their dress, the different sects within the Amish country, which we found to be extremely helpful. As you can see, can't seem to say enough good things about The Barn Inn. But, you need to try it for yourself and enjoy the best B&B experience ever! We will definitely return! K. Flint, NC

The Barn Inn is a wonderful place to stay in Ohio's Amish country. Loretta and Paul are like family after just one day there and a wealth of information. The breakfast was excellent and so were their tips on places and people to see.

The accomodations were wonderful. Paul and Loretta were so helpful in telling us about the culture and giving us a list of places to visit. Great trip!

Loretta and Paul are more than just inkeepers. At breakfast time each day they give you interesting places to go and do. Staying at the Barn INN is more like visiting family. Being of Amish decent they give you insights into the Amish community in Holmes County, Ohio.

My recent stay at The Barn Inn was just what I needed: a nice, quiet, relaxing and “homey” atmosphere. Loretta and Paul were very gracious hosts and welcomed me as soon as I walked in the door. Even though I checked in late and my paperwork was not prepared by their employee that was gone for the day, they took my confirmation and gift certificate without question and began to show me around. The amenities were very clean and comfortable. My first night Loretta even drove me to Millersburg to get dinner to bring back because it was getting late. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the hospitality was extraordinary. They offered free dessert, popcorn, coffee, hot tea, and 50 cent can pop. What I liked most was that they were Christians not just because they professed it, but by the fact that they showed true love and concern for each guest and their community. Each day Loretta and Paul would recommend local merchants and their goods; they most recently discovered a local Amish family almost living an impoverished lifestyle who sold baskets. After breakfast I decided to venture to find the home and bless the family even if I didn’t need a basket. Much to my surprise there were two couples from my breakfast table already there and one who pulled up behind me. It truly blessed me to see how grateful this family was and that they would have funds to help them through the winter months. Not to mention the fact that the baskets were good quality, attractive and affordable. I bought two! If I could change one thing it would be the early 8:00am breakfast. When I vacation I like to sleep in a little. Of course this is not a deal breaker for me and I do plan to return. If the time isn’t changed I will just do what I did this time: go back to bed for a few hours AFTER breakfast. (Smile) Thanks, Loretta & Paul for helping get just what I needed. I am now rejuvenated and ready to get back in the saddle!
It was truly a pleasure to serve this guest. For clarification, I would like this guest and others to know that if a they desire a later breakfast, we happily accommodate them at their time of choice. Otherwise, when we have a full house, breakfast is served buffet style and open for one hour, sometimes 8:30-9:30. My area information is shared 1/2 hour after serving time begins, so many guests choose to come out early for that informational time.

We visited The Barn Inn last February when we were in Amish country staying at another hotel. We drove by and stopped in to see what it was like since we go to Holmes County a couple times a year. Even tough the Inn had no vacancies Paul showed us around and was just great in every way!! We told a couple friends and the 6 of us booked Labor Day weekend. Our stay was outstanding, the breakfast was excellent, rooms were comfortable and clean and the setting was second to none. Best stay in Holmes county ever. After Breakfast Loretta told us things to do and places to go and told stories of the Amish along with explaining some of the culture. She did a great job. we were able to experience things we would have never known about. Thanks Loretta and Paul for an amazing stay.

We received this as a gift and it was one of the best gifts we've ever received. My husband and I needed a little get away, and it was the perfect relaxing weekend. Loretta and her husband were great hosts!

The rooms are spotless and comfortable. The breakfast was phenomenal . The hospitality was great also. Loretta and her husband went out of their way to assist us with special things in the area to see and do.
5 on September 04, 2010
We found the Inn with out much problem, rooms are clean and spacious. During breakfast, Loretta let us know about places we should visit that are not listed in the guides. The places she spoke about were a great way so see more of the non-tourist places that are just secretes of the local area. If you come to Amish Country, come stay here.
5 on September 04, 2010
This was my fouth stay at "The Barn" and I have never been disappointed with any aspect of the accomadtions or the friendlness of Loretta and her husband, also all of the help are always there for you. I hope to come back again and again. Thank you, Sincerely, Glenna King
5 on September 02, 2010
This bed and breakfast is the absolute best we have ever stayed at. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We would love to stay there again.
5 on September 01, 2010
Loretta went above and beyond my expectations in making my family members feel welcome and accommodating their special needs. Her recommendations for places to visit allow for a combination of an Amish cultural experience along with shopping. The basket places she recommends are exceptional and Rebecca's Bistro in Walnut Creek was delicious. R. W. Leather was very helpful in making matching belts for a grandpa & grandson.

My husband and I visited The Barn Inn on a recommendation from our daughter & son-in-law who had visited in April. We had a wonderful stay. We stayed 3 nights and by the 3rd day, I did not want to leave. It was beginning to feel like home. The breakfasts were delicious, Loretta is a wealth of information and our room was so cozy. We will definitely be back!

The Barn Inn was great! Loretta was very helpful in telling us about the area and where to go for shopping and dining. Our room was very nice and very clean! Breakfast was a little early though. Will definitely return to the Barn Inn in future stays.
5 on August 30, 2010
This was our third time at the Inn. It was, as always, even better than before.
5 on August 27, 2010
yes - second time around. love the atmosphere and quaintness. we have our own private suite in the basement and especially enjoy the kitchen - just in case we didn't go out for dinner. Breakfast usually will last a goodly portion of the day. quite filling. Thanks again for a great time.
5 on August 25, 2010
We have stayed at many of the Holmes County Inns and The Barn is far superior to the rest.
5 on August 25, 2010
Extremely comfortable room, excellent breakfasts, well-detailed suggestions and directions in written form as to interesting places in the area to visit. Guests are well-treated, as if we are a part of the family.

Lovely rooms. A/C a little noisy. Proprietors very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast! Would definitely visit again.

We had the distinct pleasure of staying in the Gehrig house on the property and were extrememly pleased and surprised. We had gone to this area to pick our daughter up from Farm Camp and wanted to spend some extra time in Holmes County. What an absolute treat. Paul and Loretta not only provided a comfortable and relaxing environment but also put significant work into helping us to truely expereince the area. We were provided with a listing of Amish experiences, including visiting with an Amish mother and her 9 children. My son enjoyed the time so much that he asked when the Amish children could come to his house to play. It was a life experience we will not forget.
5 on August 23, 2010
we had a great visit. was the second time for us. Always neat, clean and good food and she even shared the recipes.
5 on August 23, 2010
My family and I recently stayed at this beautiful inn and were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness, comfortability, delicious breakfast, and wealth of information the owners have about the area and families. You will not get your "run of the mill" tourist advice on where to go, but will learn where to go to truly immerse yourself into the Amish culture if you so desire. We will be back and my children can't wait to do so! Thank-you.
4.6 on August 22, 2010
Four of us went on a 'girls vacation' and stayed at the rennovated house adjacent to The Barn. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!! Same breakfast service as The Barn, except we had a seperate place for all of us to sleep, plus the use of a kitchen. Loretta a knowledgable and gracious innkeeper. Availabe to answer all questions and give suggestions. Would go back again in a heartbeat! The Four Girls from Michigan's Eastern UP
5 on August 22, 2010
Our 3 days spent at The Barn Inn was nothing less than a "blessing". Stepping back in time to a slower pace, the serene beauty of the countryside, and becoming a part of the Amish experience allowed us to "stop and smell the roses" if only for a brief time. Each morning during breakfast Loretta shares unique customs and explains beliefs of the Amish culture. Having been raised Amish, she brings the Amish ways to life. Additionally, she answers all those questions that you might have about Amish customs, and directs you to personally recommended Amish-run businesses at Amish homes. The accommodations are beyond comparison, the rooms are exquisite. Our visit to an Amish home that sells baskets was the experience of a lifetime....the hightlight of our trip. Folks, don't hesitate to stay at The Barn Inn..you will be delighted at the reasonable room rates at this very special place, which includes an elegant breakfast! Joyce Sorey Cocoa, FL
5 on August 21, 2010
Obviously we feel that The Barn Inn is the best B & B around. Anytime my husband and I are wanting to get away from our busy lives, we automatically think of The Barn Inn. To us it is like going to visit old friends. We absolutely love this B & B and really feel like we have forged a friendship with Paul and Loretta, the innkeepers. It is just like going home, only much better. I would highly recommend this B & B to anyone willing to listen.

This was our 4th time to stay, we go to the area alot, 3-4 times a yr., but Loretta always knows of something New & different. We also found a veg. stand with wonderful mum's for sale, besides visiting the Miller family that makes Baskets, great prices both places. We like to travel more backroads than the Berlin thing, more true Amish places. The Breakfast was Wonderful, and so was the fresh Baked Chocolate Crinkle Cookies the evening. Keep up the Great Job, I'm sure we'll be back.

This was my 1st visit to Holmes County and Barn Inn was highly recommended. Location was perfect - just want I like and wanted -- quiet place on a lonely country road. Room was unique/beautiful likewise the dining and living rooms. Even like the cute "smoke house" and fountain and bridge over creek. Breakfast was great and liked the personal touch given by Loretta over breakfast ---- she was so informative and made everyone truly feel like a guest in their home. Should I ever return to Holmes County I will definitely return to the Barn Inn and on the same token recommend it to everyone I know.
5 on August 16, 2010
We found The Barn to be the nicest bed and breakfast ever. Loretta and Paul were wonderful hosts, and Loretta's information each morning about the Amish and places to go was the most helpful. We would have liked having more time to visit with them! The room was clean and comfortable.
4.8 on August 15, 2010
What a wonderful place to stay. Will come again and stay longer. Enjoyed the talk with Loretta in the morning. We felt more comfortable visiting the Amish homes businesses after hearing from Loretta. Enjoyed taking a walk on the beautifully landscaped property.

This was our first trip to Holmes County Amish country and stay at the Barn Inn. We did not know what to expect since we only saw the pictures of the Barn and rooms on the internet but we were pleasantly surprised and happy with our room and our hosts, Loretta and Paul Coblentz. We stayed in the Renaissance room which was decorated beautifully and very comfortable. The bath was roomy and very pretty with the chandelier over the tub. The room was very clean too which is so important to me. Our breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Loretta gave us so much information about places to visit that other people coming to Holmes County would not have know about. We visited several and they turned out to be the highlight of our trip. We will definitely return to the Barn Inn again on our next trip to Holmes County. It was a wonderful 2 days and the only thing I would have changed is a little cooler weather so we could have enjoyed the balcony more. Karol

We have been to many B & B's and the Barn was quite an experience. The neat thing is talking with the other couples over the good homemade breakfast. We also noticed that the soap that was provided made the shower floor very slippery and we forgot to mention it that next morning.
5 on August 13, 2010
We had a wonderful visit at The Barn. It was very comfortable and unique. To know that in the past it was an actual barn. The owners have done a great job with all the rooms plus th downstairs sitting area is very cozy. We had a full delicious breakfast and during the day there was always coffee, tea and some wonderful cookies/bars available along with popcorn. After breakfast our hostess gave us a talk about the Amish/Menonites and mentioned some places to visit. We did and were very pleased with her suggestions. We would recommend this Inn for a delightful experience.

Loretta has a lot of insite to share about the area and what the Amish have to offer locally. It was great to have the information that was shared with us in the morning over a wonderful breakfast. We enjoyed all the options off the list that day and would go back to see how our new Amish friends are doing next year!

We had stayed the night before at The Inn at Honey Run which is a very peaceful, forest-surrounded facility with nature all around. We stayed the next two nights at The Barn Inn and liked it even better as the rooms exceeded our expectations--very large, nicely-furnished room, a great whirlpool spa tub, and a terrific bed. It was very quiet and the breakfast was a delight to experience in the morning. The innkeepers surround you with just the right amount of attention--extremely welcoming yet respecting your privacy. We will definitely stay at The Barn Inn again.
4.2 on August 09, 2010
This was the most educational and informative vacation about the Amish we have ever experienced. Because the resident innkeepers were born and raised in the area, we were able to see up close and personal how the Amish work in their homes and on their farms. We came home rested, refreshed, and reflecting on life that is so beautifully simple, tranquil and FULL of God's handiwork.
4.8 on August 09, 2010
The Barn Inn is a wonderful place to stay if you are visiting the Amish country of Ohio or if you just wish to stay in a very relaxed place in the countryside. The breakfast meals are the best and are set up so that the guests have an opportunity to meet each other and compare notes on local attractions. Loretta is a great host and provides excellent recommendations concerning places to eat, shoppping locations, and perspectives on Amish culture.
5 on August 09, 2010
We had a very nice stay at the Barn Inn. The place is in a beautiful setting in a beautiful barn. Breakfast was delicious. Loretta gave a talk about the area and some of their recommendations about what to see and do. Even though we have been to the area several times it was very helpful. We enjoyed staying there and hope to stay again. The Yoders
4.4 on August 09, 2010
The Barn Inn is a wonderful place to stay while while visiting the Amish country. Each morning Loretta talks about local places to go which are not the normal tourist attractions. Many times these are the homes of the Amish. She and her husband grew up Amish. Because of this we saw much of the Amish culture that the normal tourist would not see. Going into local Amish homes and talking with them is truly a wonderful and educational experience. Thanks Loretta!
5 on August 08, 2010
This was our very first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. Overall, we were so pleased with our weekend stay. Great fellowship, wonderful food, charming rooms and absolutely beautiful countryside!! From the moment that we stepped into the inn, we were made to feel so welcome by the innkeepers and their staff. For us, this was a truly "priceless" experience.
3.2 on August 07, 2010
My friend and I spent 3 nights at The Barn Inn. We booked the "Innkeepers Suite" which was perfect for two women because we both wanted our own bedroom. The best part about the Barn Inn was Loretta. Each morning at breakfast she tells the guests about the Amish and also where to go to find unique crafts, etc., many sold at people's homes. We would never have found some of our favorite places without Loretta's help! We will definitely be back.
4.8 on August 06, 2010
Our suite (Renaissance) was amazing!! Our breakfast was delicious!! My wife and I appreciated Loretta sharing things to do around town after we had our breakfast. She gave us all a typed list with her area recommendations. She didn't talk about the big popular stores. Instead she talked about the people working out of their homes handmaking their own products. One store that we enjoyed was Mrs. Hershberger's Farmerstown Broom & Book Store in Sugarcreek. This is a must see place to visit. She takes you back in the shop and shows you the process of making her brooms. Don't miss the opportunity to own one of her hand made brooms and hear her story. You can't go wrong with staying at the Barn Inn. Loretta and Paul are wonderful innkeepers. Thanks for sharing your home and for the amazing time we had. We will be back!! Mike & Susie - Perry, Ohio

Great place to stay. Great hosts and wonderful food! Very clean rooms and lovely grounds.

Our stay was relaxing in both the common room and the patio outside our room. The area is quiet and the rooms are comfortable. It is just like being at home or a favorite relative's house. Loretta and Paul make you feel like you are family and Loretta serves a fabulous breakfast every morning along with places to see in the area. This was at least our seventh stay at The Barn Inn and we have already booked our trip for next year. Hopefully we will have a chance to visit before next year but for right now we will definitely be back.

My husband wanted to give me a special birthday gift, and so he arranged for us to stay a night at The Barn Inn B & B, and he asked two special friends to go with us. We had a wonderful experience. It was relaxing and fun, and Loretta made sure we had a list of interesting places to see during the time we were in Ohio Amish Country. Loved looking at the animals from our back deck, chatting with Loretta and the other guests, and relaxing in our beautiful room. Breakfast was delicious. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.
5 on July 31, 2010
I have always dreamed of visiting the Amish country! Our experience at the Barn Inn alone was fabulous - very relaxing, country atmosphere (the place is beautifully decorated and the food is superb)! We also feel that staying at the Barn Inn truly gave us an advantage to learning and experiencing more about the Amish. Each morning after breakfast, our hostess, Loretta, shared about the history of the territory and people and her suggestions of places to visit was wonderful. We visited as many of the places she recommended as we could and were not at all disappointed. We are already planning another trip back!
5 on July 30, 2010
We were skeptical of going to another Bed and Breakfast because of a previous experiance we had a few years ago. But our daughter purchased this gift certificate for us for a Christmas gift. We had such a nice time that we will definately be returning.

We had hoped to stay at the Inn but they were booked so we were offered the guest house. Unfortunately, it was not of the caliber that we have heard as that of the Inn. It was simply an old farm house, however, the bathrooms were modernized and very nice. The reason for the rating was our discomfort. We made the mistake of selecting one bedroom over another and the window AC unit did little to cool the stiffling air. Plus we both found the mattress to be soft. At 3 a.m. we gave up and changed bedrooms. The AC worked very well but the mattress was again soft. When we finally decided to get on with our day we were exhausted and I had a sore back. We would love to try the Inn but be wary of the House.

My wife and I enjoyed the Ohio Amish country and our stay at the Barn Inn B & B. The innkeeper was pleasant and helpful. The room and service were outstanding. Words cannot describe the gourmet breakfast that was served in a warm and friendly environment. The oatmeal pancakes and quiche were the best I have ever had.
5 on July 27, 2010
This was our third visit to the Barn Inn. Everytime we have had an excellent time. Rooms were Cozy and Clean. Bealfast was ecxcellent and informative. Loretta and Paul are so friendly and helpful. Will always stay here when comming to Holmes Co.

What can I say other than "we'll be back"! The Barn Inn was everything we'd hoped for and more. From the proprietors Loretta and Paul, to the room, the location, and of course, the country breakfasts, this was truly an enjoyable experience for us. We were celebrating our tenth anniversary, and wanted a special place to stay, and we were not disappointed. We will highly recommend this bed and breakfast to everyone we know!
4.8 on July 26, 2010
It was my 60th birthday and my husband and I wanted a quiet, relaxing weekend get-away joined by my brother and sister-in-law. We found The Barn Inn on your website and fell in love with the photos. We chose the French Country room and the Camelot specifically because they were adjoining rooms to enjoy eaqch others' company. The rooms were extremely clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Even though the Inn was filled during our stay, it was very quiet. The attention to extra details were lovely, such as the area to make "inn supplied" microwave popcorn, and the small basket of complimentary pain relievers and antacids. Many of the other B & B's in the area offered only a continental breakfast on Sunday as opposed to The Barn Inn's wonderfully delicious full breakfast. Innkeepers, Paul and Loretta were welcoming hosts and shared great local information of "must see" places to visit. We most definitely would recommend and again visit this lovely country haven.
5 on July 25, 2010
We stayed in the Gehrig House one night-that was certainly not long enough! The rooms were beautiful, quiet and comfortable. All of us enjoyed the flowers, garden and barnyard animals. Loretta Coblentz was a gracious hostess and excellant cook!

We have just came fron a Stay at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. It was a cozy Inn. The weather in Ohio happened to be close to 100 degrees and it was quite nice to be able to get out of the heat and humidity and relax. We will make a return trip here.

My friend and I went to Amish Country for a girl's getaway. The Inn was perfect. The rooms are very spacious and unique. The breakfast was a huge country yummy meal and the inn keeper was friendly and very knowledgable of the area. We could not have asked for a better time. I highly recommend the Inn.

Very enjoyable stay at The Barn Inn. Paul and Loretta were absolutely wonderful hosts! The food was delicious, and it was a great location to "all things Amish". Definitely recommend staying there.

During research, wasn't sure if I wanted a "barn vacation," but upon arrival, they won our hearts in 60 seconds. We arrived at 10 pm, but Paul & Loretta had waited up to receive us graciously. It even appears that they waited to see us drive up before they put my previously ordered flowers and gift basket in the room (for freshness). As an architect, I appreciated the quality finishes of the project. So often cheap materials are used to mimic the quality of an older character. Not so here. The Barn Inn has been sensitively designed and constructed. The food was great; interaction with guests was pleasant and we had enough privacy and elbow room to have a personal experience. Close-by to all things Amish. Our 30th wedding anniversary was an inspiring success.
5 on July 23, 2010
July 21-22, 2010 My husband located this inn online and what a excellent choice this was. Loretta was so informative of the Amish lifestyle and things to see while in the area. The breakfast was great and we really enjoyed the company of the guests staying there. We will make this a place to stay on future visits to the area and recommend to our family and friends. Thanks for a great stay! :)

Paul & Lauretta made our first ever bed and breakfast an experience that we will never forget. They welcomed us with open arms and made us feel like their house was our house. The homemade breakfast each morning was amazing. We enjoyed sitting around the table and talking with everyone that was staying there. Lauretta is very knowledgable about the area and also the culture of the county. We took her advice on where to go and what to see. Paul and Lauretta have a wonderful relationship with the community and very well liked by all. When ever we mentioned we were staying at The Barn Inn we heard nothing but good things from the people. This was our first ever experience with a bed and breakfast and also with the Amish community. We are already planning a trip back and I am sure it won't just be one more! Thank you Paul & Loretta you have an awesome place and you are great people!!!

My husband and I were at the Berlin Hotel looking for a room to stay in for the night. Everything we tried was completly booked. The desk clerk saud he just had a call from a local Bed and Breakfast and called the Inn keeper for us. She said she had a room available and that if we wanted the room she needed our credit card number because another couple wanted the room but, refused to give thier number over the phone. Needless to say, we gave the number and passed the other couple that didnt hold it with their credit card!! We were warmly greeted by Loretta and she told us we were going to be staying in the "Farmhouse". What a wonderful surprise...a whole entire house to ourselves! It was beautifully decorated and super clean. She shared information and places to go at breakfast with the guests and her husband, Paul was so friendly. We can't wait until our next visit and this time, we'll take the kids!!

Greeted as soon as we entered. Given a tour and taken to our room with was absolutely beautiful (Renaissance). Enjoyed our evenings on the balcony overlooking the gardens and fountain. I enjoyed the presentation of the breakfast as well as the food. The Barn Inn is a must for anyone who loves B&B's or would like to go to one. Thanks Paul & Loretta we look forward to another visit to your Inn in the future. Charlie & Sheri

It was my our first stay at The Barn Inn and we couldn't have asked for more. Nice, clean rooms... friendly and helpful staff. Loretta added an extra bonus by expressing her real passion for the Amish and the area.

Our InnKeeper ,Loretta Corblentz, made this charming inn experience that much more enjoyable with her outstanding breakfast and places to see and things to do respentation.What a great champion of the local businesses and attractions.
5 on July 14, 2010
Clean, well equipped, nicely decorated rooms. We are from the big city and the very quiet setting is so relaxing as you sit out on the balcony and take it in after a long drive. The innkeeper was very warm and inviting along with a very informative talk about the surrounding area while eating a very delicious breakfast. I would highly recommend staying here it is well worth the stay.
4.4 on July 13, 2010
I was truly astonished to see such a wonderful sophistication in a place with a rustic name. The owners are quite polished and pay closee attention to detail. The innkeepers are friendly and truly devoted to making their guests feel at home and welcomed. At breakfast, Loretta gives a short rundown to her guests on things to see and do in the area and points them in the direction of understated gems to explore in Amisg country and the county.
4.8 on July 13, 2010
Quiet setting, Great food, Entertaining Hosts that make you feel welcomed, very clean.

Loretta's oatmeal/m'n'm cookies were fantastic and she liberally shared her baking secrets. The surrounding towns were charming and only surpassed by the charm of The Barn itself. We'll be back!
4.6 on July 12, 2010
My husband and I finally had the opportunity to get away for a weekend with dear, long time friends. What a fantastic place to relax in a quite, serene location and atmosphere. Paul and Loretta are very gracious hosts - you feel like you are truly guests in there home. The food was fantastic, they were helpful to all guests on what sights to see and when. There hearts are in their community
5 on July 11, 2010
The scenery was beautiful, the Inn was gorgeous, and the food was fabulous. The quilts that were displayed throughout the Inn were skillfully crafted. The information that the innkeepers shared with their guests every morning after breakfast was very much appreciated. They helped you find your way to out of the way places that were wonderful. I would go to this Inn again in a heartbeat and I would recommend it to others.

Loretta and Paul run an excellent B&B Friendly warm people in a soothing relaxing atmosphere
4.8 on July 10, 2010
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful one night stay at the Barn Inn. Beginning with an entry into a tastefully decorated great room, we were shown our room before we decided to take it. All the amenities were included from the usual ironing utensils, hairdryer, coffee pot to the chocolate candies and electric fireplace. Breakfast was out of this world. The price was less than $10 difference than the Hampton Inn room we booked the following evening, which wasn't nearly as pleasant as our stay at the Barn. I highly recommend it!!

We enjoyed the peace and quiet we found at The Barn Inn as well as the hospitality. We really liked the breakfasts. We met several nice people staying there. We will return.
4.2 on July 07, 2010
A lovely unique Bed and Breakfast. The owners gave a wealth of information of the area and places to see.
5 on July 05, 2010
The Barn Inn provided a comfortable and private getaway. The hosts, Paul & Loretta made us feel so welcome. The accomodations were outstanding. The rooms open out to the main lobby/frontroom, but also have private entrances onto a beautiful balcony. Each morning, after a delicious breakfast, Loretta provided touring tips and shared about the area. This was very helpful, allowing us to find some out-of-the-way places we otherwise may not have found.
4.2 on July 04, 2010
Enjoyed our overnight stay in the Rose Room. Loved the whirlpool tub. During breakfast, Loretta gave us some suggestions on places to visit. The information was most helpful.
5 on July 04, 2010
The Barn Inn was the perfect place for my husband and I to get away and relax. We needed a break! The Inn was full at the time but you never would have known it. It was quiet, and the service and food was excellent. Loretta and Paul provided wonderful advice and information on the area and the Amish People. On the way home we were already planning our next trip to Barn Inn.
4.8 on July 03, 2010
Fantastic, relaxing atmosphere. Centrally located in Amish country Ohio. Delicious breakfasts. We would return to it.
5 on July 02, 2010
We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary there. Breakfasts were delicious. Loretta was well-informed with local contacts for the best Amish homes in which to tour and shop for handmade crafts. We highly recommend The Barn Inn to others interested in the Amish culture or just a quiet relaxing vacation.
4.0 on July 02, 2010
The Barn Inn is located in a beautiful, pastoral setting in Holmes County. Our room was nicely appointed, comfortable and quiet. Our host and owner, Loretta Coblentz was charming and helpful. Breakfasts were excellent and freshly made. Loretta provided a very informative list of local places to visit and gave a brief and very informative talk and answered questions after breakfast. The entire experience was very satisfactory.
5 on June 29, 2010
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at The Barn Inn. I am originally from Ohio, he is from California and we currently live in New York City. The Barn Inn is centrally located in Amish country and true scenic bliss. It was a relaxing and extremely tasty trip for both of us (WOW, breakfast was Deeelish!). I learned things that I never knew about the Amish and Ohio in general. My husband truly enjoyed his first real country trip. I highly recommend this B&B and think we will be back soon for another stay. - Christina & Michael
5 on June 29, 2010
Our stay was wonderful, from beginning to end. The innkeeper was a well of information in regard to the local culture, as well as directing us to local places of interest. The breakfasts were delicious, service outstanding. YES...you should stay here.
4.4 on June 29, 2010
We expected a country setting and weren't disappointed it is beautiful and serene; the Inn, clean, lots of interesting memorabilia and cozy; the room was wonderful, cozy while feeling elegant. What touched us the most was the feeling of family from the owners. Not only did they see to our comforts: a specially prepared salt free meal for my husband, but after breakfast a wonderful talk from Loretta about sights and activities in the area.
5 on June 28, 2010
This was our fourth trip to the Barn Inn, and as usual, everything was fabulous. The rooms are by far the cleanest you will ever come across as well as being perfectly apppointed. The location is ideal in that it's in the country but still close enough if you'd like to drive into town. However, every time we go, we end up not really wanting to much of anything except enjoy the tranquil surroundings at The Barn Inn.
4.6 on June 27, 2010
The Inn has beautiful rooms and decor and a delicious full breakfast. In addition, the owner will talk about the area and give a list of "must-see" places off the beaten path that are interesting and good values for purchases.
4.8 on June 27, 2010
What a unique and peaceful place to stay! We celebrated our 43rd anniversary there. Everything from check in to check out was perfect. It was clean and inviting, the breakfasts and afternoon snacks yummy, and the information shared by our hosts, Paul and Loretta Coblentz, was so helpful! Our three nights just went by too quickly....we will have to return. Paul and Janet Dingman
5 on June 27, 2010
If you want to experience Holmes County the RIGHT way, the Barn Inn is a must. The Innkeepers, Paul & Loretta Coblentz go out of there way to make you comfortable and feel like family, and the Inn itself is nestled right in the heart of a peaceful Amish community. Staying at the Inn is an experience itself, and when you visit, make sure you stay for breakfast; you won't want to miss Loretta's introduction to Holmes County and the area's best kept secrets:)
5 on June 27, 2010
Luxurious and private rooms with a cozy home like atmosphere. Breakfast was wonderful along with the service and the innkeepers knowledge of the area and places to visit was outstanding.

We had a great, relaxing stay. Our hosts were helpful and informative. The amenities were outstanding.
5 on June 23, 2010
A lovely inn located in a beautiful setting. The breakfast was homemade and delicious. The owners were friendly and helpful- even providing us with a list of things to do in the area.
4.6 on June 22, 2010
We have been here several times and loved our stay each time. This year we came to celebrate our 31st anniversary. I chose the French Country room and it was more beautiful than the pictures led us to believe. Upon arrival, the hosts were very helpful in directing us to a place for dinner and, as always, the information given at breakfast was delightful. Loretta educates her guests about the Amish people and why they live the way they do, and she gives helpful info on where to shop, eat, and how to find the hidden treasures of the area. This is one of the most relaxed atmospheres of any B & Bs where we have stayed. A favorite!
5 on June 22, 2010
The innkeepers Paul & Loretta Coblenz are very familiar with the area and take the time to inform their guests about local attractions, amish businesses, and events taking place that day (or during the time you're staying at the inn). The breakfasts are so delicious and come from local businesses (eggs, sausage, etc). The rooms are beautifully decorated including the spacious and inviting common area. This was my third visit to The Barn Inn and I plan to keep it a tradition. Paul and Loretta also accomodated my 10 month old daughter by setting a place for her at the breakfast table...her very own highchair!
4.4 on June 22, 2010
The Barn Inn is in an ideal location, very peaceful and with a welcoming atmosphere. The information given us about interesting places to visit was so helpful and we would not have found some of them without Loretta's wonderful assistance
4.4 on June 22, 2010
This B&B is in a renovated barn, which sounds rustic but in fact is very charming, and much roomier than expected. Located in the heart of Amish country in Holmes County Ohio, decor reflects and supports the Amish community. Quilts are displayed, a small assortment of Amish made goods are available for purchase; yet the amenities are strictly 21st century. We stayed one night, and Paul and Loretta were very helpful and accommodating. Trouble with the sattelite TV brought Paul to our room instantly and after he rebooted the system, we had no further problems. Breakfast was a full country style, with home made biscuits, breads, eggs, sausage, hash browns and fruits. Snacks and beverages (available 24/7) included some home made cookies (yum!) and other bakery, with Coblentz chocolates in our room. We met a couple who were visiting for the 17th time, having come all the way from Massachusetts. Loretta gives a little description of the area and some of the highlights of places to visit; she recommended a particular leather maker where we got some great bargains--and it helps to support the economy of the Amish. If you come, try to spend more than one night; there's plenty to see and do in the area.
5 on June 21, 2010
We stayed in the farmhouse and had a wonderful time! What a treat it was to sit on the porch and see the Amish community around us. The horse and buggies rode right in front of us. There were goats, sheep, and horses all around us also. Wow, we were so impressed! The following morning we had breakfast served to us on the deck. It was fabulous! We had hashbrowns, eggs, fresh fruit, sweet rolls, juice and more! The hospitality we were shown by the staff was unbelievable! We were given specific places to make sure we visited while in the Amish countryside with directions on how to get there. I highly recommend "The Barn Inn" to anyone visiting in the area. (A GPS is also a Godsend in this area!!)
5 on June 21, 2010
Everything in all respects was excellent
5 on June 20, 2010
Loretta & Paul are wonderful hosts. Both are very knowledgable about the area. This was our third stay with them & probably won't be our last.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and it was amazing!! Our room was wonderful, and breakfast was fantastic! The area is so picturesque and the hosts were very informative. Everywhere they suggusted to visit was excellent. They were very nice and accommodating. We had a great time and will definitely try to come back!

We have stayed at the Barn Inn several times and in all honesty wouldn't stay anywhere else. Paul and Loretta go out of their way to make the stay exceptional.
5 on June 17, 2010
Inkeepers Loreta & Paul share their time with guest, telling interesting & informative things about Holmes county and the Amish culture. Breakfast is always a different, delicious treat. We have returned five times and find new things to enjoy each trip.

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 30th anniversary in the Amish Country, Ohio. A friend told us to stay at "The Barn Inn" in Millersburg. We are so glad that we did. The room was beautiful and so romantic. the Inn offers a large selection of movies to watch for free. We watched a good movie and also got to enjoy the jacuzzi that was in our VIP Suite. A very good experience. We will be back.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Barn Inn. The breakfasts were wonderful and the rooms were very clean and relaxing. The added information which was given to us was very helpful and the service was great. It was a home away from home! I would go there again or recommend it to a friend.
3.6 on June 14, 2010
We stayed in the Camelot room and had a miserable nights sleep. The bed was very uncomfortable. The mattress dips in the middle! The scenery and decor is beautiful and the Barn Inn offers little nciites that made our visit memorable. Breakfast was very taste and the food plentiful. It would have been a perfect visit if not for the mattress issue. Hoepfully the owners will resolve this issue since it was also noted in April as a problem.
Thank you for your stay and your comments regarding the mattress in the your room. We appreciated your telling us prior to leaving, and on the day of your departure we went shopping; and have purchased a new set for that room. It is only when guests tell us that they have experienced a problem, that we become aware of the need. Your reference about a previous guest comment was in regard to another guestroom, in which the mattress was replaced at that time. Please know that guest comfort and satisfaction are of paramount importance to us. As soon as we learn of any discomfort by anyone, and if it is something that we can remedy, we do so immediately. In the last year, five rooms have beds replaced with deluxe mattresses, all upgrades,these offering additional foam, and some with pillow tops. Thank you again for your candid review, and if you would like to redeem the offer I gave you in my email to you, we'd be pleased if we could serve you again.
5 on June 14, 2010
This was my 3rd visit to The Barn Inn. Needless to say, I love coming here. The rooms are beautiful and comforable. The Innkeepers, Loretta and Paul are friendly and knowledgeable about all the exciting things happening in the area. The eggs and sausage are from local farms and suppliers and is very appetizing and substantial. I encourage everyone to try The Barn Inn. This visit I brought my 10 month old granddaughter and Loretta and Paul were so gracious and helpful. Carol Jones
5 on June 13, 2010
An amazing hidden getaway spot. The Barn Inn is a very homey envirnment to spend a quit, private weekend. Paul and Loretta go out of their way to serve an immaculate breakfast and inform everyone of all the local attractions going on. Thank you for a wonderful getaway, we had a great time and plan to return in the future. We will definatley recommend to friends and family.
5 on June 12, 2010
I called while on our way to Millersburg and Loretta was so pleasant, helpful and accomodating that I decided to look no further. The place is absolulely beautiful and her husband Paul was as pleasant a host and Loretta is a hostess. The food was the best we've ever been served at a B&B and the price was which was a special was too tempting to pass up. They were informative to all of the guests about the area and we took their advice and found some wonderful bargains at the Basket Home. The Farm at Walnut Creek was awsome! I would highly recommend staying at The Barn Inn with Loretta and Paul. The Madonna's from Sterling Heights, MI

My grandmother and I just returned yesterday from a two day stay. We just got to enjoy the bed and breakfast one night. I already thought the inn-keepers were very nice from speaking with them on the phone. They were friendly and answered all of my questions in a very business-like but nice way. I was impressed that someone called me back hours after I booked to see if we would like to take part in an Amish-style home cooked meal close by. We could not, but it was nice to see they gave their guests that kind of attention. I LOVED the movie selection that was offered there for the dvd player! The breakfast the next day was AMAZING!! Thank you for the friendliness, cleanliness, great hospitality, and amazing food.
4.8 on June 11, 2010
The Barn Inn is a wonderful place to relax and feel pampered. Loretta and Paul, the inkeepers, were such wonderful hosts! The rooms were the cleanest of any place my husband and I have ever stayed. The food was absolutely marvelous and Loretta gave us her choice of places to visit around the area. Quite a few places that no one would really know about unless you were a local. I appreciated the beautiful view off of our balcony of the water fountain and wooded area. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone. I hope to return soon.
5 on June 09, 2010
The hospitality was wonderful! Everyone was so friendly and answered any questions I had! The food was also more than enough, and tasted fantastic.
4.6 on June 08, 2010
We had a very relaxing stay at the Barn Inn. Loretta and Paul are excellent hosts and we enjoyed our stay very much. The food was very good and I really enjoyed the discussions that Loretta gave each morning outlining various things to do in the area. Her suggestions were very insightful and the discussions on the culture of the Amish people were very informative. I would definately recommend the Barn Inn as a good place to stay.
5 on June 08, 2010
Our stay was above & beyond our expectations. Will be back again!!!
5 on June 08, 2010
When we arrived we were greeted by Loretta (the owner) and offered a fresh cup of coffee. She immediately showed us to our room and then suggested we might be more comfortable if she brought in an additional rollaway bed (we were traveling with our two teen age children). The room was charming! It was a lot bigger than I had expected. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and, she even provided a late night snack of fresh sour cream coffee cake!! The room was on the lower floor with a private entrance. We could walk out to the garden and enjoy the outdoors without being bothered! They have a creek behind them, a fountain, a fire pit and you could watch the sheep graze! The inn is pretty as a picture!! It's just what you would expect a country inn to be. Lastly, the breakfast was outstanding!!! We have already talked about it and, if we can afford it, we would like to go back again this fall!
4.0 on June 08, 2010
The Inn is a very beautiful and peaceful place to stay.Loretta and Paul are friendly and helpful.They are very knowledgeable of the area and Amish way of life and will assist you with experiencing that way of life.We would go back again.
5 on June 07, 2010
Loretta and Paul were very conscientious about making sure we were comfortable and were familiar with the accommodations, down to showing us exactly how to work the remote for the TV, the thermostat for the A/C in our room, etc. Loretta directed us to a nearby path for taking a walk, and then we relaxed at the patio table and chairs outside our room, listening to the birds and enjoying nature. We were impressed with the attention to every little detail in the room, and we loved the relaxing two-person Jacuzzi in the Country Charm suite. After the delicious hot breakfast, Loretta gave a short talk about the Amish, told us about interesting things to see and do in the area, and gave us a nice print-out of the places she told us about. Wonderful stay at a beautiful Inn!

Just finished two wonderful days and nights at The Barn Inn. The room and hospitality could not have been better. Beautiful and extremely clean rooms. Even our breakfast table partners were talking about how clean everything was. Good cookies for late night, popcorn available 24 hours. Back porch was soooooo relaxing to sit and enjoy the trees, the fountain, and the sheep next door. Can't wait to return for another stay.
4.8 on June 05, 2010
We very much enjoyed our stay. In fact we were so happy we plan on coming back next year in the fall and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
5 on June 04, 2010
My husband and I along with my parents stayed at The Barn Inn in April 2010 for three nights. What a wonderful place to stay. We have stayed in B&B's before but this one is different. Loretta's tips about the area and the Amish ways at breakfast are very helpful and interesting. I think the best part was to start the meal off with a blessing from Loretta was the best. What a blessing. I know we will return to the Barn Inn someday for another vacation.
4.6 on June 01, 2010
Although this was our first stay in a B&B, it was a wonderful experience. We stayed in Vintage Rose, and found everything very relaxing. Really enjoyed the jacuzzi, popcorn, and breakfast in the morning. We hope to return again in the future!

My husband and I recently stayed at The Barn Inn. We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. We were looking for a nice, quiet get away. We found that and much more. The room was wonderful and the atmosphere so peaceful. I kept telling my husband I was in Heaven. Paul and Loretta were very inviting and the most gracious hosts. I look forward to being able to visit the Inn again soon.

Loretta & Paul were very friendly, and knowledgeable of the community. We appreciated their help in locating attractions and sights, not to mention the delicious breakfast we were served. Thank you!
5 on May 24, 2010
We received a gift certificate to the Barn Inn as a gift, and it was such a nice surprise. We stayed in the Camelot room-very affordable and comfortable. The grounds and the rooms are immaculate, the house is very well designed and decorated, and the innkeepers were so kind, treating us like family. Breakfast was delicious! We definitely plan to stop back again soon. I just hope that The Barn Inn hasn't spoiled us for other B&Bs.
4.8 on May 23, 2010
We really enjoyed our recent stay. We should have stayed longer. We felt happy when we woke up and hearing birds' twitting. We really want to come back and stay longer in the future. Thank you Loretta and Paul.

5 on May 21, 2010
I cannot imagine a more perfect place to stay than at the Barn Inn!! The Inn is beautifully furnished with antiques and quilts made by Loretta. The setting is ideal! Loretta and Paul are such terrific hosts. We especially enjoyed Loretta's little talks in the morning about what to do in the area. We went to places we would have never found on our own. The breakfasts are delicious! We skipped lunch everyday--no need for lunch after such a wonderful breakfast. My husband also enjoyed the cookies in the afternoon after we returned. Thanks, Loretta and Paul, for creating such a beautiful and serene place. We definitely plan to return!!
5 on May 20, 2010
we felt right at home with the hostess and her husband. very clean, romantic, and relaxing. we had a great breakfast with all the fine foods from the local area. while at our breakfast, the hostess educated us on the nearby attractions and amish lifestyles. you have to try the "spoiled rotten" package, it's well worth the $$!!!! there was nothing negative about this place. THESE FOLKS KNOW WHAT THEIR DOING HERE AT THE FARM!!!!!
4.8 on May 19, 2010
We would highly reccommend The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast. Holmes County is such a beautiful scenic area and staying at The Barn Inn for 3 days really spoiled us. Loretta and Paul were super hosts. Breakfasts were all delicious and very filling. Coffee, Tea, cookies, popcorn all complimentary throughout the day and evening. Movies available to borrow . Each morning after breakfast Loretta would share information about places to visit and stories about the Amish people. Our rooms were decorated beautifully and the beds were very comfortable. Everything very clean! Kudos to Loretta and Paul. We travelled from Upstate New York and hope to get back again someday.
5 on May 18, 2010
Our stay was the most peaceful and Relaxing ever. This has to be the top of line bed and Breakfast places you can go too. Our only regret, that we did not stay longer. We are planning on going back for at least 3 days next time. Paul & Loretta you guys have done a great job with your place you should be proud to have a place like this, keep up the good work . See you soon. Don and Josee

My wife and I stayed at The Barn Inn based on a recommendation by a friend and his wife. We had an exceptional time and want to go back. Paul and Loretta are wonderful hosts and made us feel like old friends. We were exceedingly blessed by our visit to Amish Country and The Barn Inn.
5 on May 16, 2010
We love Amish Country in every season, in all kinds of conditions. Rain outside, as the latest day we stayed, never dampens the spirits inside the Barn Inn. Hosts Loretta and Paul Coblenz see to that. Every detail is lovingly attended to as they strive tirelessly to make everyone's stay perfect. Whether visiting with the hosts or chatting with other guests, everyone is made to feel as if the Great Room is their own living room and all are family. Thanks again for a great stay!
5 on May 16, 2010
My wife and I had a very nice experience staying at the Barn Inn. And we have recommended the Inn to all our friends and family. We hope to get back to the Barn Inn for another stay this year. Chris and Ruthellen

...and well worth the effort! This was our first visit to a bed and breakfast, and may never stay in a hotel again! Our hostess Loretta was very friendly and helpful, and a mean cook as well! The rooms vary in price from 109.00 to 179.00. We stayed in the Renaissance Room, and it was worth the 179.00. It was rustic and homey, with exposed wood beams, lovely furniture, and spacious. There was a walk out to a balcony and stairs to the yard behind the property. The setting was pure country, serene and quiet. We woke to birds singing in the morning - better than any alarm clock. Breakfast was family style and featured locally made sausage. The lobby decor was all exposed beam architecture and wood paneling with a very comfortable sitting area and dining room. We were there to meet an old navy buddy and we sat and talked for hours in the sitting room. In an area full of B&B (Amish County Ohio), we found a hidden gem!

Paul & Loretta are very accommodating. They know alot about the Amish culture & they are very interesting. The things that they do for you are way above expectations. Like they have literature printed up for you to take with you that have buisiness names & addresses for you to find them as you go about your day. They have a special time set aside each morning to go over places they reccommend, and they take the time to answer any questions you might have. And not to mention they have a DELICIOUS breakfast every morning! We really like their style. We have been there twice & will be going back. Thanks Paul & Loretta

Our stay was very relaxing. Rooms are clean and decorated in a country manner according to their names. Breakfast was substantial and delicious. The innkeepers gave guests valuable insight into what to see and do in the area. Will make a return visit sometime in the future.
4.6 on May 07, 2010
Everything was above anything I expected as I took my wife to this splendid little hide-a-way of a place! The room was exceptional along with our hosts. We really enjoyed their insight in the Amish/Mennonite communities as we ate our breakfast.
4.6 on May 05, 2010
To celebrate my husband's retirement, we spent three nights at the Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. Loretta and Paul were very gracious hosts and we learned a lot about the area. Breakfast each morning was wonderful and we toured the area with insight from Paul and Loretta of things to see and do in the area and some were off the beaten path. This Inn is a beautiful and relaxing place to visit, and we will definitely return again soon. I highly recommend the Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable and unique place to stay in the area. All the little extras make this quite a special place. We plan to take my parents back for a visit again soon.

Our church provided a gift certificate for a nights stay for my wife and I and we were very pleased with the stay. The fellowship at breakfast along with the food was tremendous. We will be back!
4.8 on May 03, 2010
Great place for a romantic anniversary getaway! The room was beautiful, food was great, and the atmosphere was very relaxing and private. Hosts were wonderful and informative. Well worth the "little extra" in cost to ensure perfection. Definitely on the list of places to return.

Lots to do in a very relaxing setting. Beautiful scenery and super friendly people.

My husband surprised me for my 50th birthday with a stay here.I had looked at this inn a couple times before but we never went. It exceeded my expectations and the innkeepers are great.You feel like you are staying with friends. Do yourself a favor & visit this unique spot.
5 on April 26, 2010
I have been staying here once a year for the last ten years and would not consider any other place to stay. The Inn Keeper is the best and will do anything to accomodate you. She is there to serve and make your stay the best. It gets better every year.
4.8 on April 26, 2010
paul and loretta made us feel special and right at home from the time we checked in until the time we checked out. we felt welcome in their beautiful,spacious home. our room was immaculate with all the amenities we could want. breakfast in the morning was plentiful and tasty. just what we needed to start our busy day in the area. loretta's informative talk in the morning helped us plan our day. what a great, relaxing way to treat ourselves.
3.2 on April 26, 2010
Room was clean & attractive, but couldn't get jacuzzi jets to work. Very good home-cooked breakfast. Innkeeper was very informative about area & provided printed handout of local atttractions. Visited in Mid-April & grounds were not yet ready for use.
4.8 on April 26, 2010
We were greated promptly and paid attention to always. Hot coffee and cookies were continously found in the great room. A warm breakfast with talks about the area by the inn keeper were provided daily. A warm and friendly place.
5 on April 21, 2010
Our "old friends" card club travel twice a year to state parks and B&B around the State of OHio. The Barn Inn has topped them all - above and beyond - with warm hospitality, service and delicious foods. Innkeepers Loretta and Paul are "honorary" members of the Old Friends; they made us feel right at home and part of the family.
4.8 on April 20, 2010
Our group has gathered at various spots around Ohio for the past 11 years. We value a place with individual character as well as hosts that are friendly and seem glad to share hospitality with us. This past weekend we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Loretta Coblentz's Barn Inn! Loretta and her husband were very warm and relaxed and available to relay information about the local Amish culture and places to visit. In addition, Loretta's breakfasts were definitely the very best we've been served! This is a place we'd look forward to returning some day!
5 on April 19, 2010
I stayed at the Barn Inn with 2 of my girlfriends for a get-a-way and do some shooping and we were very impressed with this place. It was gorgeous and could not have been more clean. The breakfast was fantastic and the owners were very friendly. We would go back for sure!
3.4 on April 19, 2010
We are at the mercy as to where we stay - because our friends picked this place for our get-together. We were pleasantly surprised with the warm hospitality and personal attention given to us for our whole stay (2 nights)
4.4 on April 19, 2010
This is a beautiful B&B! Breakfast was excellent - the best scrambled eggs we have ever had! Inn Keepers were very friendly and offered wonderful in site to the area and it's attractions. Our only complaint, the beds were not comfortable. We stayed in Memory Lane and Victorian Romance. We would highly recommend this B&B to friends and family. If we return to the area, we would stay here again.
5 on April 18, 2010
We have never known innkeepers to go above and beyond to the degree that Loretta and Paul did that for us this weekend! Absolutely outstanding! Thank you!
4.6 on April 15, 2010
Very good service and a quiet relaxing time. The food was very good also.
5 on April 14, 2010
We have stayed at many B&B's over the last 15 years or so, but The Barn Inn remains our favorite. We stayed for our 30th anniversary recently. The rooms are beautiful & impeccably clean. The home cooked breakfast was delicious. The atmosphere is very relaxing. The Inn Keepers, Loretta & Paul Cobletz, make it a very special place. they are warm & welcoming. Loretta gives you 3 sheets with info about their favorite places to visit in Amish Country. Some are Amish homes on the backroads that sell bentwood rockers, handmade rugs & baskets, candles, jams & jellies. Places that we certainly wouldn't have known about had she not told us. We came home with a bentwood rocker that glides & swivels. We couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience at The Barn Inn.
5 on April 13, 2010
Beautiful, comfortable rooms; friendly, welcoming atmosphere; helpful info about surrounding area.
4.4 on April 13, 2010
I made reservations just days ahead and was very pleased with the facility and the hospitality of the hosts, Paul & Loretta. We would definitely consider staying here again for more than just the one night that we were able to get away this time.
5 on April 12, 2010
We loved our stay at the Barn Inn. We felt it was "home away from home," only better because I didn't have to cook! The hospitality and breakfast were wonderful. The evening snack of cookies and cake were also greatly appreciated! We will certainly return in the future!
4.8 on April 10, 2010
it was a delight. The Inn was absolutely beautiful. The Inn keepers were a delight and very informative. We felt right at home. We will definitely return.
4.6 on April 09, 2010
We loved the barn. Loretta and Paul are great hosts, they know the area and the amish in the area. They will help you in any way they can and will talk with you like family. I can't say enough about breakfast (wow,wow,wow). We will be going back. Jim Lawrence
5 on April 08, 2010
We didn't know what to expect since this was our first stay at a B&B. We really enjoyed our stay at the Barn Inn. We are looking forward to coming back again.
4.4 on April 05, 2010
My girlfriend and I had a perfect evening at the Barn Inn. You might think - "oh it's a barn...it'll be rundown and falling apart." This could not be further from the truth. The building is solid like a rock and kept up better then many newer B&B's I've been in. It has also been updated with the latest in safety and technical features (Fire Alarms, Satellite TV, and Wireless Internet). Our room was clean and quiet. Our breakfast was lovingly made and tasted yummy (quiche, sausages, baked oatmeal). All in all - more then we hoped for. Thanks Loretta!
5 on April 05, 2010
This was a retirement gift for the both of us from my wife's teaching staff. It was a wonderful evening. This was our third trip to the Barn and we will be back.
5 on April 04, 2010
Absolutely Wonderful! A great relaxing getaway with fantastic rooms, luxury bedding, home cooked breakfast and beautiful location.
4.2 on April 02, 2010
Our room was wonderfully quiet with a great jacuzzi tub and fireplace....many interesting details added to the "homeyness" of our room. Our room was also "well mirrored" which is often a problem when we travel--not enough mirrors for make-up/hair/etc. Breakfast was delicious and ample; my only complaint was that it was served buffet style which we have not run into before at a bed and breakfast. Being served definitely adds to the b&b experience. Our innkeepers provided (extensive) verbal and written information about the area. Although we had been to Berlin and Millersburg many times, we learned of many new places to visit....and interesting details about the Amish. I would also note that our room was extremely dry especially for sleeping even though we never had the heater running. We also removed the plastic pillow protectors for sleeping as there was not a prayer that we would have slept with the constant "crinkling." The coffee, tea, hot chocolate and homemade treats that were available during the day and evening were a great addition!
5 on April 02, 2010
Our stay was for our 30th wedding anniversary. This was our first B&B. The other guests were repeaters and shared their stories of other B&Bs and rate this one at the top. Even the couple from Canada that go to only B&Bs. The Innkeepers were so interesting and willing to go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. Our room, The Renaissance, was furnished so nicely and was very clean. This Inn is located in the heart of Amish Country and the Innkeepers provided us with the history of the area and the culture. We will be back and we're bringing our friends.
4.4 on April 01, 2010
We spent our honeymoon there five years ago. We wanted to go back because of the excellent service, delicious breakfast, attention to details and confortable environment. They really make you feel at home and among family. I highly recommend it.
5 on April 01, 2010
This was our first visit to The Barn Inn B&B and we will definitely return. Outstanding accomodations and the breakfast was wonderful. Loretta & Paul gave us many tips on places to visit during our stay. We especially liked the Amish Farm selling beautiful baskets, which we purchased. The innkeepers bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. We can't wait till we can return for another visit.
4.0 on April 01, 2010
Our family of four just returned from The Barn Inn and had a wonderful stay. Our two boys, 8 and 5, were with us and the room we had was perfect for a family. A two bedroom, one bath along with a kitchen, perfect for my boys. The breakfasts were delicious...enough food to last you till dinner!! We will definitly return to this bed and breakfast!
5 on March 30, 2010
My mom and I had a great stay. We learned so much about the area and the culture. We loved to hear about all of the great places to visit. The Amish home baskets was wonderful. Without the innkeepers, we would not have known the hot spots to visit!!!
4.2 on March 29, 2010
Located in the heart of the world's largest Amish community, this property is truly a barn that has been converted to a B-n-B. You frequently see Amish horse and buggies clop, clop, clopping on the road. (I just love that sound.) This was out second stay. And just like the first stay, the owners, Paul and Loretta, were very friendly and very helpful. During the bountiful breakfast, they talk with you about the area, the Amish culture, and things you can do that day. We love this place and will definitely return in the near future.
5 on March 29, 2010
Awesome place. Very warm and welcoming. Comfortable, clean, and tastefully decorated. Highly recommend to anyone. Looking forward to going again.

4.4 on March 29, 2010
Spent a night here with my husband as a quick get-away, and as a base for exploring Amish country. The Inn is beautifully decorated, the hosts inviting and helpful, and the location provides easy access to many different places to go.
4.4 on March 28, 2010
It was a wonderful relaxing stay. The area is secluded and senic.
5 on March 28, 2010
The Inn Keepers made the experience the greatest traveling treat of our adult lives. The rooms were clean, comfortable and appropiately accented. Our breakfast was delicious, warm and nutritous. Our Inn Keepers took the time to tell us about the area and the many things we find interesting about the different sects of Amish in the region.

My sister and I make small trips here and there in making memories to treasure later on. We headed for Millersburg on a beautiful sunny spring day. But, when we decided to stay over all the Hotels were booked. We were recommended the Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast! It was a twisty drive to find it, but oh what a delight from the moment we drove up to the Barn! I would have to say that our Inn-Keepers made it like the frosting on the cake! They were like family right away! It may be a bit of a drive from all the shops, but how nice at the end of the day to venture to a place surrounded by only the hills and grass and trees..........breakfast in the morning was delicious and we were off!
4.6 on March 23, 2010
We stayed in the Rose Garden room. It was lovely. The breakfast was fantastic. We had a package that included a foot massage which was devine and well worth the price. I loved everything about our stay there. We'll definitely go back.
5 on March 23, 2010
This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and I couldn't have been more pleased! Being in the country is just what we needed and the breakfast was divine!!
4.6 on March 21, 2010
great place to base yourself when traveling throughout Amish country.
4.2 on March 21, 2010
Great Amish Getaway in the heart of Amish country. Paul and Loretta Coblentz run a classy bed and breakfast close to all of the shops and sights. The breakfast was prepared perfectly and the hospitality was heartwarming. Thanks for a great stay!!
4.6 on March 15, 2010
Loretta and Paul are wonderful hosts! The breakfasts are fabulous! We were absolutely delighted by the breakfasts. The quiche is to die for. Loretta's morning talks and recommendations of sites to see in the area proved to be fantastic! We visited several of the recommended places and they proved to be just as wonderful as the inn itself. The room we stayed in the vintage rose was very smartly decorated and was extremely comfortable.. The cookies at night were yummy too! Paul and Loretta are great! Highly recommended.
4.6 on March 15, 2010
Paul and Loretta were wonderful hosts. My husband and I got away for the weekend without the kids and found the inn to be very relaxing, clean, and informative. The breakfasts were just wonderful. We didn't need to eat lunch! We will definitely recommend the inn to family & friends. Thanks Paul and Loretta!
5 on March 13, 2010
If you want to get away but feel like you went to stay with family, this is the place. Paul and Loretta are simply the best!
5 on March 12, 2010
We have visted Ohio three year in a row and never look for anyplace else. The people at The Barn Inn, treat you like what you wantto be treated. And will be back next year!

Just loved to talk to Paul and Loretta. When we needed something they jumped on it right away. Loved our stay and we will be back. Thanks
5 on March 09, 2010
The innkeepers were so accomodating and friendly. My husband and I arrived at The Barn Inn without reservations after 10 pm and were welcomed warmly. Each morning, we were treated to a tasty homemade breakfast just like Mom's! This could not have been a better experience. What a great value!
4.4 on March 08, 2010
We enjoyed the back-off the main road privacy very much. The Barn Inn is in a very natural country setting. You seem to loose track of time. The Inn is very clean, just like your own home: With the luxury of a two person juccuzi and a real fire place in your own bedroom! Very romantic and relaxing.
4.8 on March 07, 2010
Had a great time , this is the best place to stay.
4.8 on March 06, 2010
We've been coming to Holmes County for over 20 years. This has become our favorite place to stay and compares to no other. Everything about it is perfect and Loretta and Paul are so kind! We've lost count how many times we stayed but it's never enough. This truly is the best Bed and Breakfast around! It feels like home!. Dale and Linda ~ Urbana, OH
5 on March 03, 2010
The Barn Inn provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere where we like to get away. Service is wonderful, very accomodating. The breakfast is always very delicious and much more than others provide. Paul and Loretta are very informative regarding must-see's in the area. We will continue to go there year after year.
5 on March 02, 2010
Loretta and Paul were more than accomodating to our group of 14 friends from the Midpark High School "Class of '71". We laughed, shopped, ate and had a great time at The Barn. Loretta is a fabulous cook. The breakfasts' were wonderful! We loved the stories of the Amish lifestyle that were told by Loretta and Paul. It was an excellent weekend of fun! We hope to meet there again.
5 on March 02, 2010
We loved our two night stay at the inn. It exceeded my expectations. Loretta and Paul were lovely hosts. I was not interested in the second morning's talk about Amish religion as I heard it the day before. It would have been nice to continue to talk with our group without having to listen again. It was our last morning together before we parted ways. Thanks!
5 on March 02, 2010
My sister and I had a wonderful weekend away. It was the first time for both she and I to stay at a Bed & Breakfast. Everything we wonderful and very friendly.
5 on March 02, 2010
Loretta was so welcoming when we walked in the door I felt as though we came home to visit mom and dad! She took time to sit with us and get to know our interests so that she could plan a day of events for us that catered to what we liked and it far exceeded our expectations! We took a sleigh ride at The Farm which was so much fun! I really feel that God has plans for our lives and he led us to Loretta and come to find out we went to the same school growing up, what a blessing she and her husband have been to us. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts and we will definately be back in the summer! Love Todd and Tonya Manion
4.8 on February 27, 2010

4.8 on February 17, 2010
The Inn was very warm and cozy, just what we needed after a long week at work. It was so nice to be able to enjoy the peace and quietness of the inn.Our room was very clean and comfortable, though we both agreed the bed pillows were not very comfortable. We stayed in the Rose Garden room and loved it as well as the tub--- yes the water is as soft as stated.We had a hard time leaving it!! We are excited to have our extended family come and to share a weekend here soon. Paul and Loretta did an outstanding job in helping to make our trip wonderful.Breakfast was delicious,can't say enough about the maple sausage.
5 on February 16, 2010
We loved our stay at the Barn. Paul and Loretta were very gracious and made sure we were comfortable. The room was spotless and decorated in a homey country look. The towels and bath mat were plush and coconut-lime verbana sample products were yummy. The bed was so comfortable that we didn't want to get out of it in the morning - but we didn't want to miss the delicious breakfasts that were served, such as quiche, stuffed french toast, sausage, and coffee cake or cinnamon rolls. We were all given detailed information sheets on places to go and visit while we were finishing breakfast, and our questions were answered about the Amish and Mennonite ways of life. I would recommend the Barn as a great place to stay for anyone.
4.6 on February 16, 2010
The service we received at The Barn Inn was much more than I could have hoped for. The owners were outstanding. Everything was very clean and we had all we needed to enjoy our trip in Amish Country!

This was our first time at the Barn Inn and we were more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The room was wonderfullly decorated and the pictures on the web site just do not do them justice. The owners, Loretta and Paul, were just wonderful and will do anything to make your stay as comfortable and informative as possible. While this was our first stay at the Inn, it certainly will not be our last! I almost hate to tell everyone how nice it is as it will be all booked up the next time we want to go!!! Thanks for a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend!!! Jim and Patty
5 on February 16, 2010
We have stayed at the Barn Inn 3 times now and are looking forward to our 4th! We love the coziness atmosphere and the wonderful food! Thank you Paul and Loretta!

The Barn Inn is beautiful and the service was beyond our expectitions. I have never stayed in a place so clean and well run. Will definitely return for another visit.
5 on February 12, 2010
I could never get my husband to agree to stay at a B&B (he didn't want to share a bathroom, etc.) Our anniversary is in February and I convinced him to stay at The Barn Inn for a short getaway. We both have farm backgrounds and the idea of staying in a converted dairy barn was appealing. We enjoyed our stay, even though there was so much snow that the shops and most restaurants were closed. We will definitely recommend The Barn Inn to our friends and family.
4.4 on February 09, 2010
We were at the Barn Inn during the big snow storm the first of February. Loretta made lunch for all the guests, even thogh she did not have to do it. Loretta and Paul had excellent information about the community. Even though we have been to the area before, we learned things we did not know.
5 on February 02, 2010
The Inn proprietors take care to see that their guests are well cared for. I highly recommend staying at The Barn Inn
5 on February 01, 2010
Our stay at The Barn Inn in Millersburg, Ohio was the most enjoyable away from home experience we have had as a couple. This charming B&B offers so many hospitable extras! Definately worth checking out!

Attention to detail and charming knowledgable hosts make this a winner for anyone wanting to visit Holmes' County and the Amish area of Ohio. The rooms are elegantly decorated and the breakfast is scrumptious.

Very nice bed & breakfast experience. The Inn owners were knowledgeable about the area and made some excellent sight-seeing recommendations. The excellent service was topped off by the snow being cleared from our car windows on the day of our departure. We are planning on returning for future stays at this beautiful Inn.
4.8 on January 26, 2010
We just got home from another weekend at The Barn Inn. It was our 5th stay and as expected it was a great time! It is a wonderful place to "get away from it all", which we both needed! We are always made to feel welcome and comfortable either in our room or in the main room. Thank you to Loretta and Paul for keeping it simple and keeping it the same!

My husband and I stayed at the Barn Inn over New Years weekend. The innkeepers were accomodating and welcoming. The room was beautiful and relaxing with a fireplace and jacuzzi. The room was spacious and clean. We enjoyed lounging around in the luxury robes provided and relaxing by the fireplace after coming in from a cold day of shopping and sightseeing. The food was amazing and so filling that we skipped lunch. Scrumptious baked goods in the evening made a great ending to our days spent at the Barn Inn. I highly recommend this Inn for a getaway in any season.
4.8 on January 03, 2010
If you like country then this is the place for you. We have stayed there 3 years in a row on New Years and could not have chosen a better place to spend New Years. It's cozy, warm, charming. The Innkeepers and warm and very professional, they have knowledge of the area and are very informative. Enjoy your stay.

This Is A Very Nice Bed & Breakfast With Dinner Served On New Years Eve Which Is Outstanding, We Would Recommend This Bed & Breakfast To Anyone Who Enjoys Bed & Breakfasts.

We were first time visitors and had no idea our stay would be as wonderful, comfortable and relaxing as it was. Paul and Lorretta were excellent hosts that made you feel very welcome and actually part of their family. Breakfast was excellent and we appreciated their help with all the imformation, directions to sites to see and history of the Amish culture. We will definitely return and highly recommend this B & B to anyone seeking a wonderful, comfortable and relaxing experience.

The main areas are clean, well kept and quite nice. We stayed in the Vintage Rose suite which is spectacular and very comfy. The king mattress was a bit different from ours, so sleeping was a slight issue, but otherwise, a beautiful room and very clean. Huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub and separate shower. There was only one bathrobe in the closet, but a nice touch. Love that you can go outside your room onto the porch to where they have a table & chairs. It was winter, so we didn't do get to enjoy it, though. Paul & Loretta are very welcoming and kind and serve a lovely breakfast in the morning. Loretta is full of ideas on the best places to visit in the area. Will definitely go back to The Barn Inn on a future visit to Amish Country!
5 on December 31, 2009
This is a fabulous place to stay. The innkeepers are very friendly and helpful. They gave us directions to places to visit and shop. Our family enjoyed the open living room to do puzzles and play games.
5 on December 31, 2009
We had a blast, Paul and Lorreta are very personable and knowledgeable about the area. they had many tips as to what places to vist. Our room was the nicest we have stayed in. We were looking to spend a relaxing weekend, and it certainly was. We would definitely return to The Barn Inn
4.8 on December 30, 2009
This is our first stay at the Barn Inn and we will definitely be staying again! It was very clean and quiet, much better than staying at a Hotel! The jacuzzi and heated tile floor was wonderful. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas, Loretta sure knows how to decorate! It is also very easy to locate. We will definitely be recommending this Bed and Breakfast to others...
5 on December 30, 2009
This was our fourth visit to the Barn Inn, and we were not disappointed. Paul and Loretta go above and beyond to create a warm, inviting experience, and their knowledge of the area is outstanding. We look forward to our next visit!
5 on December 28, 2009
We had a wonderful time at the Barn Inn. Loretta was fantastic. Great breakfast and beautiful decor. Would recommend to anyone looking for a B&B in Amish country. Loved it so much,we bought a gift certificate for our son to enjoy.
5 on December 23, 2009
Great room, excellent overnight getaway. Innkeepers very hospitable and knowledgeable about local Amish culture. Highly recommended.

My husband and I spent Sunday, Dec. 6, 2009 at The Barn Inn. We were “first-timers” brought by that “fun lady from Indiana”!! Everything she has always told us about the inn was true and we were wowed. Paul and Loretta certainly make you feel at home. I would describe the décor as rustic elegance – the rooms are beautiful, clean and very romantic. Conversely, the inn has a warm, family atmosphere where you feel very comfortable. We were in Amish Country for the Cookie Walk, which was a great way to sample different cookie recipes and view 10 B & B’s/lodging facilities. Because The Barn Inn was on the Cookie Walk, we were not able to check into our room until later and Loretta served a light soup dinner, which was much more than just a light soup dinner – delicious! The breakfast was amazing as well. We appreciated prayer before meals and Loretta’s descriptions of Amish life, as well as, recommended points of interest. We can’t wait to return – highly recommended.
5 on December 20, 2009
This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and we will definetly return to the The Barn Inn. Everything was perfect. The breakfast was really great! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a bed and breakfast in Holmes county.
5 on December 20, 2009
We have been staying at The Barn Inn since 2003. We ONLY stay at there & Paul & Loretta have become dear friends. We usually go in November & March (after the farming & before it begins.) Many times we take another couple with us who have not been to there & they are amazed. NObody makes breakfast like Loretta!!! We will continue to stay at The Barn Inn whenever we travel to the area.
4.8 on December 14, 2009
Second time at the Barn Inn and just as happy as first visit. The Inn is beautifully decorated for Christmas including a lighted tree and fireplace garland in our room! (We stayed in the Renaissance Room) Our room had a jacuzzi tub that was spotless and sooo comfortable. The breakfast consisted of stuffed french toast with delicious homemade blueberry topping, along with quiche lorraine and maple sausage, juice and coffee. All was served beautifully and delicious. The Inn Keeper-Loretta shares information on local shopping favorites and is very friendly. There is nothing I can think that would have made our stay more comfortable. Everything was truly lovely and we will definitely return in the future for a special occasion.
4.6 on December 13, 2009
My husband and I were recently on our way to the Cleveland Clinic and made a reservation at The Barn Inn to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary. What a wonderful experience! The room was very comfortable and breakfast was outstanding. Loretta and Paul were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Located in Amish country, we were able to visit lots of craft stores and enjoy good Amish food. We would recommend this B&B to everyone.
5 on December 10, 2009
Beautiful rooms. Exceptional attention to details. Welcomed as though we were family. Awoke to the smell of delicious breakfast. Absolutely beautiful!
4.4 on December 09, 2009
My husband and I stayed at the Barn Inn for our anniversary. Our room was absolutely beautiful and we loved having a romantic fireplace. The owners were so friendly and very helpful in giving us tips as to where to visit in the area. They gave us lots of insight into the lives of the Amish. The breakfast was good. There wasn't a huge selection but everything was very tasty. We would definitely stay here again.
5 on December 09, 2009
We received a gift certificate 3 years ago and for various reasons were not able to use it. Not only did they honor it but the morning of our departure from home we discovered that we didn't have it. So we fully expected to pay for our nights stay. Paul and Loretta were gracious and took time to look up the original purchase in their records. They went above and beyond the call. Also because of the cookie tour we were not able to get into our room until late so after the cookie tour she had a "lite" meal for all the guests that night. The soup, sandwiches, salad and dessert were wonderful! Here Christmas decorations were beautiful as was our room. It really was one of the best if not the best B&B's we have visited and plan to go back.
5 on December 07, 2009
The hospitality was excellent. Look forward to going back soon.
4.6 on December 07, 2009
The Innkeepers are wonderful when sharing ideas after breakfast on where to go and what to see in the area. We appreciated their suggestions, as well as, the privacy of our stay at the Inn.
3.2 on December 07, 2009
The room was very nice, clean and larger than expected. General sitting area and dining area are very large and comfortable. Hosts are very friendly and informative about the Amish and the area. Nicely decorated for Christmas. Easy to find with a GPS, might need good directions other wise.
5 on December 07, 2009
It was my first experience with a B&B and I was very impressed. There was a great room, wonderful meal and maintain of privacy.
5 on December 06, 2009
The Barn Inn will definitely not disappoint. We had a suite there and could not have loved it more. The owners, Loretta and Paul, could not be more attentive and welcoming. Loretta's talks each morning are the best & you learn a lot about the Amish as well as things to see & do. Trust her recommendations, they are great. The breakfasts are fantastic & each afternoon she puts out cookies or some type of homemade sweets. There are also coffees, teas, hot chocolate, for your convenience. Loretta even provides a microwave (and popcorn) to use & has a nice array of books & videos about the Amish for use in your room. The Barn Inn is great, you will feel right at home & you could never find better hosts than Loretta & Paul. If you are there on a Sunday night, try the "Raid the Kitchen" at the Inn at Honey Run. It's really good! Loretta will give you the info. They really go the extra mile at the Inn, from the owners to the staff. As far as we are concerned, it is the only place to stay in Amish country!
4.6 on December 05, 2009
Lorette made us feel right at home and can she COOK!!
4.8 on December 04, 2009
WE HAVE NEVER STAYED AT A B&B BEFORE. WE WERE VERY IMPRESSED ON THE ACCOMODATIONS AND ATMOSPHERE WE EXPERIENCED. WE WILL RECOMMEND THE BARN TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS! IT WAS RELAXING, QUIET, WE FELT COMFORTABLE W/ THE OTHER GUEST STAYING AND ENJOYED THE COMPANY OF OTHERS AT BREAKFAST W/ US. EVEN MY HUSBAND WAS RELAXED AND ENJOYED HIMSELF!
5 on December 01, 2009
I walked into the room and it was overwhelmed by how romantic it was. We stayed in the Vintage Rose room for two nights on our honeymoon. You couldn't ask for a more romantic place. They even had a cd with Amish music in the room to add to the ambience.
5 on December 01, 2009
We had gotten married on November 28th and arrived at The Barn Inn on the 29th. We stayed in the Vintage Rose room, and we could not have imagined how romantic this setting would be. When my new bride saw the room for the first time her initial response was, "WOW". I had seen pictures of the room on their website but that cannot compare to being there in person.
4.6 on December 01, 2009
My husband & I recently stayed (11/2009) here & were very pleased with the service, location & accomodations. The staff is exceptionally helpful & friendly. For anyone staying in Holmes County, I would recommend this as the first choice for accomodations that reflect & share information on the local culture.
5 on November 30, 2009
Hello we stayed Sat Nov 28th at the inn.We stayed in the Memory Lane roon.It was very clean super nice and lots of room.But i do feel the reason the Barn Inn is a 5-Star B&B .Is because Paul and Loretta are very nice down to earth people with lots of information to share with there guest.Loretta your cooking is Top notch . The Cozy Up Winter soup Package was great. Thank you both So much Andy and Laura
4.8 on November 29, 2009
I found The Barn Inn to be very hospitable. The rooms were very clean, there was a very nice sitting area were you could sit and visit, with the owners or other guest or you could pick out a movie, pop popcorn and sit in your room. The owners are very friendly, I throughly enjoyed the information that was given to us during breakfast, on what there was to see and do in the area. The drive out to the Inn is very interesting, and you see some beautiful countryside. I will definetly stay there again.
5 on November 24, 2009
Escape from the kids, the city, and best of all, work!!! Everything is done for you, except the relaxation in front of the fire place, maybe take in a movie that they supply in a large libriary. We had our own table out side of our room to sit and drink our coffee watching the morning come alive on the mountain side. Thank You for having us as your guests. The Jepson's
5 on November 24, 2009
This is our second time staying at the Barn Inn, my wife and I just love the entire environment that is created there. It's a couple of days of peace and quiet, with incredible food and accommodations. It's a wonderful place to just go and exhale and relax.
5 on November 24, 2009
Having stayed at other B&B,s in this area in the past and here at the Barn Inn three times now, we have found our HOME for each visit to this wonderful area of God's creation. The grading scale could include a listing titled BEYOND BELEIF, for that is exactly what our entire stay was each and every time, Paul and Loretta, we thank you and look forward to another stay in your part of Heaven soon.
5 on November 23, 2009
My husband and I were very happy with the atmosphere, as soon as we walked through the door, we were welcomed by smiling faces! Our room was wonderful, and our breakfast was superb!!! We wil be back........ S. Martin
4.6 on November 23, 2009
Never been to a B&B before. It really did exceed my expectations.
5 on November 23, 2009
Our last minute plans & reservation at The Barn Inn B&B was a true blessing. An attractive oasis of peace & quiet we so greatly needed to begin our trip back east. Loreetta was a perfect hostess, directing and educating us on the details of the beautiful Amish countryside, points of interest and amazing Amish culture. We would have stayed longer if possible. My husband & I look forward to returning soon. Truly one of the best B&B stays we have had within the US. Paul & Rebecca -Indianapolis, IN
5 on November 23, 2009
We are part of a group consisting of four couples that take an annual trek to Amish country for a mini getaway before the holiday frenzy. We wanted to do something different than the usual hotels and in researching discovered The Barn Inn. What a treat we were in for! Paul and Loretta are wonderful hosts and we were treated like family. The home-like atmosphere was so welcoming , it was easy to relax and enjoy ourselves. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Loretta gave us a new perspective on the Amish and a list of new places to visit - all "off the beaten path". We plan to return next year, as well as tell others about The Barn Inn and how welcomed we were.
4.8 on November 22, 2009
My wife and I met with three other couple for a wonderful nights stay with Paul and Loretta. The rooms are beautiful and the setting is fantastic. We immediately felt like family as soon as we walked in the front door. We visit Holmes County attractions quite often and some of the not so well traveled. That being said, Loretta is an encyclopedia of great buys/places to visit that we never would have known about or found. Thank you again Paul and Loretta, we will be back!
5 on November 21, 2009
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast...the accomodations were excellent and the staff wasfirst rate....we will be back
5 on November 21, 2009
A delightful respot for 3 female friends shopping and traveling through the beautiful Amish areas of Holmes Country. Loretta's breakfasts are superb! Her tips after breakfast led us to some more delightful Amish homes where our families and friends will enjoy the gifts during the holiday season. A true delight at the end of a quaint country road.... just what everyone needs after a full day shopping! (Her quilts are amazing in detail too!) We'll be back!
5 on November 18, 2009
Our stay at the Barn Inn was one of the best times we have had anywhere. The room was outstanding, the food was delicious, and Loretta and Paul are wonderful hosts. We have been to Holmes Country many times but this time was our best.
5 on November 18, 2009
We were delighted with the lovely Victorian Rose room. It was immaculate and like new. Though the room was large, it was cozy. Paul and Loretta made all of their guests feel at home and served an amazing breakfast (perhaps the best I've ever had!) We will return as soon as we can.
4.6 on November 18, 2009
What a nice stay we had at the Barn Inn. The rooms were elegant, comfortable and very clean. It was great to explore the surrounding area and then come home and relax. The breakfast was delicious. The innkeepers so helpful with suggestions of places to visit. We will definitely be going back.
5 on November 18, 2009
Our visit to The Barn Inn exceeded our expectations. Walking through the barn doors took us into a beautiful Great Room, already being decorated for Christmas. Our room was beautiful, and the breakfast was delicious. It was so easy to see why it is rated in the Top 10! Loretta and Paul were gracious hosts. Loretta gathered us all together in the evening and shared some very interesting insight into the Amish way of life, as well as giving us some tips on shopping locally. We will be making The Barn one of our special favorites.
4.8 on November 17, 2009
We completely enjoyed our visit. The room was impeccable, and the food out of this world! thank you. We'll be back.
5 on November 17, 2009
My wife and I joined another couple for a couple of days of shopping and exploring in Amish Country. The Barn made that experience even more special. The friendliness and quality of service are exceptional. The location is perfect. Just off the main path for a secluded and quiet feel, yet close enough to the attractions of the area to be convenient. This is going to be one of our main getaway spots.
4.8 on November 17, 2009
Room was clean, attractive and comfortable. Resident innkeepers very friendly and informative. Great value - our Victorian Romance was $119 which included breakfast. Breakfast was served buffet style and was delicious plus a chance to meet other guests and enjoy an informative talk on Amish culture by the innkeepers.
5 on November 17, 2009
We got a gift certificate as a wedding gift to stay here. It was our first time staying at a B&B and we loved it! The Coblentz are wonderful people and made us feel at home as soon as we walked in the door.
4.2 on November 16, 2009
It was a friendly and cozy place to stay. Everything was exellent..The only thing i was a little disapointed in was breakfast.. Don't get me wrong the food was great..I just expected a little more meat and differnt kinds of eggs. All in all i would recomend it and would go back
4.6 on November 16, 2009
We had a great time. The Barn Inn is a wonderful place. Beautiful countryside, nicely decorated rooms and Paul and Loretta are so friendly. Everything is very,very clean. I highly recommend The Barn Inn. If you stay once, you will definitely want to go back again and again.
5 on November 15, 2009
The Barn Inn is so great that we have stayed there at least six times (every time we go to Holmes County) Loretta and Paul are wonderful hosts. The food is always outstanding. Loretta is always so informative about the best places to shop. We love the Barn Inn
4.8 on November 15, 2009
We were in the area just overnight; but being away fir the hustle and bustle of the tourist area was great!! The innkeepers-Loretta and Paul took the time to talk and answer questions. The breakfast "lecture" was different-we have never stayed at a B & B that did this!! The decor was beautiful! One could tell that Paul and Loretta really enjoyed what they were doing!! Thanks so much for helping to make 24 hrs. a memorable get-away for us!!
5 on November 15, 2009
This was our third stay at The Barn Inn. Very nicely decorated room, excellent breakfast and snacks (breakfast sausage is the best ever!), and friendly inkeepers who are very helpful in sharing information about the surrounding area. We'll be back!
4.8 on November 13, 2009
what a pleasant evening and morning! the innkeepers are precious, definitely will return for another visit!
4.8 on November 13, 2009
Our stay at the The Barn Inn bed and breakfast blew us away. Loretta was like a visiting an aunt in the country. The breakfasts were amazing. The room was well appointed and cleaner than any hotel room we've stayed in. Her knowledge of the area was a huge help. We will be back.
4.8 on November 11, 2009
We chose to celebrate our 28th Wedding Anniversary by getting away from the normalcy of our chaotic life and enjoyed every moment. The charm and peacefully of The Barn Inn B&B was just what we needed. The Innkeepers were gracious and helpful in making our visit to Holmes County one that we look forward to planning again.
4.4 on November 10, 2009
The owners are very nice. They are also very helpful in sharing information about out of the way places to go.

4.6 on November 10, 2009
Paul & Loretta, we had such a great stay at the Barn Inn. This was our first time at a Bed & Breakfast and it was perfect. The room was the best, the breakfast was awesome. Thanks for all the tips on places to visit. We loved our stay.
4.6 on November 09, 2009
It was a very relaxing and fun weekend get-away. Would love to come back.
5 on November 09, 2009
I am from Queensland in Australia so have been on many wonderful holidays, many of them including some of the World's most beautiful beaches. This, however, was the most amazing getaway I have ever been on - the room was beautifully set out and the owners, Paul and Loretta were so welcoming and helpful - not only did they go out of their way to meet my dietary requirements, but the food was delicious as well!! It was wonderful sharing this experience with my husband of three months and we totally recommend it as a romantic getaway!
5 on November 08, 2009
The Barn Inn B&B is a wonderful place to call "home" as you travel Amish country. My wife and I found it charming and homey as well as centrally located to most of the attractions we wanted to see in Holmes County. Innkeepers Loretta and Paul were cordial hosts and had lots of interesting tips for places to see. In addition, Loretta added a wealth of personal knowledge about the Amish during our wonderful breakfasts. We plan to return!
4.0 on November 07, 2009
The accommodations and setting and hospitality were awesome. Breakfast and the review of the area by Loretta was exceptional. If you haven't visited the Barn Inn make it your next Bed & Breakfast selection you won't regret it.
5 on November 05, 2009
fantastic food,quiet and serene, hostess is very knowledgable of the areaand very gracious, rooms are beautifully decorated
5 on November 03, 2009
We have stayed at other B&B's in the area, however none are as excellent as The Barn Inn. It is always at it's best. Rooms are well decorated, clean, and inviting. Breakfast is plentiful and GOOD. You will always enjoyed your stay, and want to return.
5 on November 03, 2009
Excellent accommodations and food. Warm and hospitable hosts. Would never stay in another place in the area.
4.2 on November 03, 2009
My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary on 10/30 and 10/31/2009. Our Innkeepers apartment was ready when we checked in at 2:30. This apartment does not have a view, but if we wanted pictures, we just had to walk outside. There is a full kitchen and we utilized that for snacks while we watched the World Series after we settled in for the night. Loretta and Paul were both very hospitable and you could tell they pay attention to details. The breakfasts were wonderful! I had the best quiche I've ever had in my life. The sausage is to die for and Paul said he purchases it from a local farmer. Stuffed french toast on Sunday was a great way to start out the day. Loretta and Paul gave a little talk during breakfast about things to do in and around Millersburg and gave us some bakground on the Amish and Mennonites. Very informative. They were very helpful with those who needed directions to various sites. Just found out today as reported in the Cleveland Plain Dealer (11/3/09) that The Red Barn Inn was named one of the country's 10 Best Bed & Breakfasts! CONGRATULATIONS LORETTA AND PAUL! We will definitely come back again to stay at the inn. There is so much to see and do in the area, that it will take more than one trip. Loretta's suggestion to go to the Miller Bakery was a great choice. We bought home a wheat bread that is out of this world. I wish I had bought more and froze them at home! We also went to the Guggisberg Cheese Factory and bought some swiss cheese. Somehow the Amish cheese always tastes better than what you get in the stores at home. All in all, it was a great weekend to get away and relax in the calm of rolling hills and fresh air. Nancy Nageotte
5 on November 02, 2009
We so enjoy our visits to Millersburg and The Barn Inn! As always, everything is perfect from the immaculately clean room to the delicious breakfast served by Loretta in the morning. We're already looking forward to our next stay. Debbie and Mike
4.6 on November 02, 2009
What a delightful experience!! The sincere and warm hospitality made us feel as if we were home away from home. The room was elegant , the breakfast delicious and the shopping tips invaluable! We plan to make this an annual trip!!
4.2 on November 01, 2009
Our second stay at The Barn Inn was as pleasant and peaceful as the first. The accomodations are warm and inviting and reflect the personality and charm of the innkeepers, Paul and Loretta. We look forward to our next stay in Holmes County and the Barn Inn will be atop the list.
5 on November 01, 2009
We have stayed here many times. The first time we came, my hubby actually planned our trip to Holmes County, Ohio for our anniversary. He found this B&B on the Internet (this is so unlike him to do this) and from that time, many years ago, we have come back over & over again!! No wonder they have won awards!! They are the sweetest couple, and the effort Loretta puts into sharing the area "must-see" places is so appreciated. Of course, their treats and breakfasts are the best!! What a lovely place and what a lovely host & hostess. We have taken our Oregon friends there, and next year are planning to bring two other couples with us!! Thank you, Paul & Loretta, for a wonderful time every time!!! W&V Lehman Adams County Indiana
5 on November 01, 2009
We were impressed by every aspect of our visit. The hosts wer incredibly friendly and informative. I'd been to Amish Country many times but learned so much from their morning talk. The room was beautiful, relaxing, well appointed and just what we needed. I'd go back and I recommend it to any one who needs a little R&R in a very peaceful setting.
5 on October 31, 2009
Truly,The Barn Inn and Paul and Loretta are outstanding to say the least. What a wonderful experience !!! Loretta is so gifted with so many talents and such a gracious host and Paul was such a blessing to visit with and I learned so much more about the culture. The Barn is located in such beautiful surroundings .The pictures do not do justice to the Barn..Rooms were beautiful and I was able to sleep in the lounge chair with my bad back and it is very unusual to find a lounge chair at a Inn--Thanks Paul and Loretta--We stayed in the Holmes Co. room and was decorated beautiful.The food was delicious. Would go back in a HEART BEAT--God bless you both--you have the perfect job--Thanks again,Loujean and John
4.6 on October 31, 2009
The Barn Inn is a great place to stay for a quiet get a way.
5 on October 31, 2009
This was my first stay at The Barn Inn and I was so pleasantly surprised by the personal touches and personal service that I will definitely be back. Loretta is a wonderful hostess. At breakfast, which was delicious, she told stories about the Mennonite and Amish traditions. She suggested places to see and visit and shop while we were in Amish Country. Everyone we met were friendly. It was like one big happy family. The Inn was unique and beautiful. I went there for R & R, and I left with so much more.
5 on October 30, 2009
THIS WAS MY SECOND VISIT TO THE BARN INN I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR ONE OF THE NICES PLACES I HAVE VISITED OVER THE YEARS THANKS FOR EVERYTHING
3.2 on October 30, 2009
The Barn Inn is in the rolling countryside of Millersburg, Ohio. The innkeeper is gracious and helpful. She is enthusiastic about the area, the Amish people and their customs and traditions. The breakfast food was delicious!
4.8 on October 29, 2009
Very clean, friendly, and comfortable -- lovely in every way. Innkeeper's recommendations for places to visit in Holmes County were "right on". You'll be happy there.
4.0 on October 29, 2009
I am a frequent visitor to the US from the UK and was absolutely delighted with the warm welcome and standard of comfort offered at The Barn Inn. I have no hesitation in recommending it you anyone wanting to explore Amish country in and around Holmes County. The room, the bed, the jacuzzi and the furniture are all first class. The little home comforts such as soaps and oils and fluffy towels are the kind of pleasures that make you feel as if your are an honoured guest in someone's home. This is one to note!
4.8 on October 28, 2009
My husband and I celebrated our 5th anniversary at the inn. We had a wonderfully relaxing overnight stay. The breakfast was fabulous and Loretta's morning information was very informative. We would love to go back again in the future.
4.2 on October 28, 2009
Lovely people, lovely area. We enjoyed our relatively short stay. We will be back.
5 on October 27, 2009
Came to the Inn stressed and left totally relaxed. Did not think about work the time we were there. The owners, Loretta and Paul were wonderful hosts, making everyone comfortable and spent so much time with their guests. The breakfast was incredible and Loretta's quilts are something to see. Loretta is an artist and anyone who has a passion for quilts cannot miss out by not making a trip. I would recommend this inn to everyone both young and old. To me both Paul and Loretta are Millersburg's "gems".
4.4 on October 27, 2009
Excellent acccommodations. Very helpful in giving guidance to places to visit in the aea. The food was outstanding.
4.6 on October 27, 2009

5 on October 26, 2009
Beautiful Scenery. Wonderful, warm home feeling. Clean and wonderfully decorated rooms. Service was outstanding. Snacks and Breakfast was out of this world. We certainly will go back again.
5 on October 26, 2009
We have stayed at the The Barn Inn between 11-15 times. We are one of those frequent stayers. It feels like home and since we stayed at the Inn we can't stay at any other place. We are spoiled!!
5 on October 25, 2009
Loretta out did herself...again! I brought a group of ladies from the Society of Air Force nurses in 2008 and told my Red Hat Lady friends about the trip...so I brought them in 2009. Loretta helped we WOW both groups with her beautiful "barn" and delicious food and her gracious hospitality. Next, I need to bring the husbands!! Kay
5 on October 23, 2009
Enjoyed the stay at The Barn Inn this fall. Everything was beautiful and the stay was great. Loretta's breakfast information talks along with information from husband was intersting. This was our second visit. We will return.
4.8 on October 23, 2009
This was the first time that we stayed at a B&B it won't be the last. Service and hospitality were wonderfull. Loretta and Paul shared many great stories about Holmes County and the people who reside there, We stayed in thr inkeepers room and loved it. My wife has a bad back and this room was very easy for her to access., PS "Retts" cookies were enough to make me go off my diet for the day.
5 on October 23, 2009
We came back again this year due to our great experience last year. Paul and Loretta are wonderful at making sure you have everything you need, answering questions about the Amish and things to do in the area. They told us of out of the way places not listed in the guidebooks and saved me lots of money on a furniture purchase with their recommendation of a family business. The food is amazing, beds comfortable, WIFI convenient, and Paul and Loretta's knowledge of the area is priceless!

We stayed in the Camelot. The pictures do not do this Inn justice. It is very pretty, Very clean and Loretta and Paul are wonderful. The food was great. We woke up everymorning to the wonderful smells of breakfast. Very homey atmosphere. Meet lots of new friends. We had a wonderful time. We plan on going back to this Inn again.
5 on October 20, 2009
Our overnight stay in the Innkeepers Retreat was most enjoyable. Very impressed with The Barn Inn and with the suite we stayed in. Loretta and Paul were very gracious. We truly enjoyed the breakfast gathering with the other guests in the morning. The food was delicious. We can't wait for our return visit.

A very unique place to stay, a converted barn The accommodations were very nice and the breakfast was wonderful.
4.6 on October 20, 2009
Our quarters were totally all we could have ever needed and in a way it gave us more time to visit. However, Dave and I missed having our own bathroom and being able to look out at the countryside around the inn (which is how it was with our first stay). I SO enjoy being able to talk to the two of you about the history of the area and have you share things from your life history and "inside" perspectives.
Thank you for your review. For the sake of people reading this post, I wish to explain that this is 2 bedroom/1 bath suite which is sold to one party or family group only. It is sold as a 2b/1b suite and is ideal for a family with children or a couple and a parent. Throughout the rest of the inn each single guest room has a private bath. Again, thank you for your post.
5 on October 19, 2009
This was our second stay. We appreciate the open space of the living room, the chance to share with others, (FYI-we met a new neighbor, lives right around the corner) and especially Paul and Loretta's sharing at breakfast about the Amish area so we understand what we do all day and it has more meaning. See you next year.

My friend fround this place for the 6 of us to continue our week together. We have been friends since the first grade. We found that the atmosphere of this end lent itself to our needs and time together.

Clearly the best place to stay in Amish land!

Our stay was a perfect place to share our perfect moment of our honeymoon as we begin our lives together as husband and wife. The Barn Inn is truly a special place that shall remain in our hearts forever. Rev. M. Anderson of WedForU Wedding Services

We enjoyed everything about our stay at The Barn Inn. We especially enjoyed meeting and talking with Loretta and thought her suggestions for visiting places was outstanding. Also, the way she answered questions and the information she gave was very interesting.
5 on October 16, 2009
We had a very comfortable stay at the Inn. The food was excellent. We want to make a return trip soon.
5 on October 14, 2009
We had a fabulous time while we stayed at the B & B. The innkeepers were wonderful...friendly and made you feel at home. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and far exceeded our expectations.

The pictures do not do it justice. The Inn Keepers are friendly and the food is great. You will not be disappointed in the stay.
5 on October 12, 2009
This was a sisters 3 day event ~ it was awesome. The Inn Keepers were so helpful in giving us suggested place to see and they were great. Would go back anytime.
5 on October 11, 2009
Our friends told us about B&Bs but we always took tours and never gave them a thought. We were so pleasantly shocked by the beautiful Red Barn and its owners, Loretta and Paul. The food was excellent and plentiful and Loretta's talks about the community were so helpful in finding the best places to visit in the vicinity. Another thing, she is an acconmplished quilter and I am a retiring one, so we had a lot in common. We met people at the Inn who drove 4 hours just to spend a night because they found it so delightful. That speeks a lot. The location was great, we could take in so many communities and still get back to the Inn without a problem. I will recommend the Inn to anyone I know who is going up that way. The decorations that Loretta put up were so beautiful and tasteful. She is a master at many things, especially making her guests feel at home. We had a wonderful experience there and willl never forget it. Thanks for a great time and pleasel treat my ashes with respect when DY brings them up. Getting old is for only the strongest, of which I am not one of them. But I do enjoy life and all the plalces we have been and seen.
4.8 on October 10, 2009
Loretta is a great cook and loves what she does. Paul was very helpful. The day we stayed it rained so he helped with breakfast. The breakfast was oustanding. Her information of the area shows how much she cares. They are open year round and give the help year round employment. The extra touches she has around the common area and the rooms are so informative. Plus Loretta nad Paul are very pround grandparents.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and hospitality of the Barn Inn. Everything was 5 star quality including the fine Amish style breakfast. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others.

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at The Barn Inn. Everything was fantastic! This was our first experience at a bed and breakfast and we had decided to try it for my birthday. I am so happy that we did. Loretta & Paul are such gracious hosts and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Their attention to small details shows and it is the reason this place is so delightful. The breakfast was awesome! We especially enjoyed the stuffed raisin bread french toast with blueberry sauce! We definitely hope to stay here again in the future.
4.6 on October 03, 2009
The Barn Inn was a wonderful place to stay with friends. The atmosphere was one of peace and quite. Breakfast was outstanding and Loretta made my first stay in a B&B oneI will never forget.
5 on October 03, 2009
Everything was a plus at this inn. The room was very nice. The balconey and the view behind the inn were very nice. We enjoyed a stroll out to the gazebo located in the adjacent woods. This was a value considering how nice everything was. Loretta does a great job as hostess. She had a lot of information about the area, and tips for special places to go. The food was very good. We would stay in this inn again if we ever return to the area.
3.6 on October 03, 2009
Nice place, clean and friendly.
5 on October 02, 2009
The Barn Inn's photographs cannot even do it justice! The decorating and attention to detail are phenomenol. The hospitality of the hostess, Loretta, goes above and beyond any bed and breakfast we've ever stayed in. She gives all the guests a great deal of information about the sights and activities in the surrounding area, as well as a history of the Amish people. Also, the quality and quantity of the delicious breakfast buffet is outstanding. Loretta and Paul and their staff have "raised the bar" for Bed and Breakfasts to a new level!
4.6 on October 02, 2009
What a pleasure to stay at The Barn Inn! We could not have been treated better. Loretta and Paul are a delight. We felt as if we had known them forever. Great place to stay! Linda, Lisa, Carleen and Carolyn
5 on September 30, 2009
The Barn Inn is a wonderful establishment. The atmosphere is serene. The rooms are clean and comforting. The service and hospitality of Loretta and Paul made us feel like they were old friends of ours that invited us into their home. Loretta's oatmeal pancakes... what can I say, I would have made the 2 hr one way drive just for those pancakes! Our weekend away quickly deteriorated when the the facility that we origionally had reservations at screwed up our arrival date. when we arrived they said there was nothing they could do and that we needed to stay else where. To our pleasure, there had been 2 openings at The Barn Inn for that night and we took them, site unseen. When we arrived, The Barn Inn surpassed our expectations and quickly made us forget about the unfortunate incidents of that morning. Loretta went out of her way to make us feel at home. Truely a great experience. We will definitely be visiting The Barn Inn again!!
3.8 on September 30, 2009
The Barn Inn decor is very nice and detailed. Breakfast, snacks and service were excellent. But probably would not stay again, as pillows felt like a lump of staw from a barn, and lighting was poor. Rooms were accessible, but no accessible parking was available, as parking was on another lower level, creating taking stairways to rooms, or many steps to go to front entry. TV did not work in friends room. Chocolate candy in room and departure gift were appreciated.
4.8 on September 30, 2009
Loretta and Paul are so welcoming and informative. The room was very comfortable and accomodating. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. I will definately recommend The Barn Inn to anyone traveling to Amish Country.
4.4 on September 30, 2009
Despite a persistent rain all weekend long, our trip to Amish country and the Barn Inn was fantastic thanks in large part to our gracious and informative hosts Loretta and Paul. We stayed in the Olde World room, which was very quaint and comfortable - being at the end of the hallway also meant having a neighboring room on just one side. Each morning at breakfast, Loretta shares with the guests her favorite places to go, which include several terrific locations not on the tourist map. Paul and Loretta are a cute couple who enjoy socializing with their guests and have interesting stories to share regarding their connections to the Amish and Mennonite cultures. I could see that Paul and Loretta are detail oriented as I noticed the umbrellas and flyswatters they left on the common balcony for guests who may need these items. Overall, the grounds of The Barn Inn are also quite nice. Breakfast each morning was tasty and included items such as quiche, eggs, toast, hash browns, fruit cup, coffee, OJ, and sausage. We stayed at the Barn Inn with another couple and would highly recommend the Barn Inn for such occasions.
4.4 on September 29, 2009
Room was outstanding, had all amenitiies I hoped it would have. Food was out of this world, especially the Oatmeal pancakes, Paul and Loretta were very accomadating and helpful with any question that we had. We are making plans for going back again next year around the same time (we celebrated our anniversary)
5 on September 29, 2009
Friday night we happened to pick the Barn Inn. We came into the area with no lodging planned. We were in luck they had a room. It was the best decision we had made. I have never stayed at a B & B and my friend had but had mixed feelings. From the time Paul gave us our room key and showed us around to the time we had to leave we were treated like long lost family. Our accomadations were the best ever. THe food was spectacular. We had a beautiful view. There was nothing that could be said or done to improve on our stay. My only regret was we had onlyone night to stay but we have both agreeed that we will be back. My friend felt she knew the area quite well but the extra history lesson/education from Lorettta made it more interesting and gave us the lead on many things she did not know. I have planned vacation just to come there for a few days and that is something because I never take vacation.
4.8 on September 29, 2009
We loved everything about this inn. We were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary and it was perfect for us!
4.8 on September 29, 2009
When entering the B&B we were greeted warmly, with a smile and wonderful conversation. After signing in we were given a tour of the facility, shown what was available to use for our enjoyment and then taken to our room. We liked the location of The Barn Inn, the privacy and met great people for conversation. Plus the area is so beautiful. Thanks to Loretta for sharing her knowledge of what should be on our list visit. Thanks to her and the staff for making our stay that will be unforgettable. Joe & Ginny
3.6 on September 28, 2009
This is the first stay at a bed and breakfast for my wife while celebrating her birthday. She gives a big thumbs up for the whole experience. The stay was very relaxing and our only regret was that we did not book for 2 nights.
5 on September 27, 2009
From the moment we walked into The Barn we felt right at home & like we were part of Loretta & Paul's extended family. Loretta's breakfast on both days were the best I have ever eaten. Her knowledge of the area & suggestions of where to go go were dead on! If you want a B & B with character, good people & superb food, then treat your self to the Barn Inn! Sally & Kent, Columbus, Ohio
5 on September 27, 2009
From the moment you arrive at The Barn Inn, you'll feel "at home". We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and surroundings here. Loretta and Paul, the Innkeepers, are the most personable and knowlegable people of Amish country. We enjoyed having privacy and the fact that Loretta and Paul were available at all times if needed. You couldn't ask for a better B&B. We thought it was pricey when booking but once we were awarded such wonderful hospitality and their knowledge and history of Amish country, it was well worth the money. We highly recommend staying at this B&B and will do so again ourselves. We can't thank Loretta and Paul enough for such an enjoyable stay and their home cooking (breakfast) was wonderful aand enjoyed as well.
5 on September 26, 2009
Best bed and breakfast experience in Amish country. Hospitality plus. Lorraine and Paul make you feel like one of the family and very welcome.

Have visited Amish country many times and have always been very pleased with the places we have stayed. The Barn Inn raised the bar. Lorreta and Paul offer not just a place to operate from in visiting all the cultural experiences that Amish country offers, they also provide a home away from home. There rooms are all unique and well appointed. The breakfast is a family affair.
4.8 on September 23, 2009
We have gone to Barn Inn on several occasions, and each time it is like "goinghome." Loretta Coblentz, the innkeeper, makes you feel like you are a guest in her home rather than a "paying customer" in one of the beatiful rooms. She provides mid-day snacks of sweets and fresh coffee for when you return from shopping - and each morning starts the day with a blessing before the food is served. It is such a fantastic loving environment and starts the day off right each time. She provides interesting tidbits on where to go and what to see in the Amish Countryside - things you may never have thought of on your own. We willl definitely be back again - and again. Judy Hudson, Kettering, Ohio
4.8 on September 22, 2009
It was a great visit, but the air conditiioners are noisy. It would be great if dining was available. Service is excellent, and we really felt at home.
5 on September 22, 2009
We couldn't have asked for any better service and lodging. So very friendly and informative about the amish country. Pefect in every way. Will be back for sure!
5 on September 22, 2009
We stayed at the Barn Inn for the first time. Everything was totally awesome. The Inn is cozy and beautiful in every way. All the services provided were excellent. Breakfast was superb....Loretta is quite the cook. The location of the Inn is secluded, peaceful and relaxing. We will DEFINATELY stay there in the near future.
4.2 on September 21, 2009
We had the Memory Lane room and it was outstanding - lots of room, 2-person jacuzzi, private entrance, satellite TV, couch and recliner, etc. Loretta answered numerous questions about the inn and local area prior to our visit and the information & recommendations she provided were extremely helpful. Delicious snacks were provided each evening and there was a wide variety of tasty & plentiful breakfast offerings. Both Paul and Loretta offered interesting insights into the Amish culture each morning during breakfast. The barn itself is very nicely done and it is in a nice quiet area while still being close to many Amish attractions and shopping opportunities. Overall, one of the better B&Bs we have stayed in (and we tend to use them all the time) and we would highly recommend it.
5 on September 21, 2009
The room was beautiful, the food was excellent and the hostess, Loretta, was kind, friendly, helpful and informative. I would encourage a stay at he Barn Inn to anyone who wants an 'at home' atmosphere. This is where I plan to stay on my future visits to Mt. Hope.
5 on September 20, 2009
This was our first time to a B&B and it won't be our last. The Innkeepers, Loretta and Paul, were very nice and offered places to visit in the area. We got upgraded to a VIP room to accomodate other visitors. We stayed in the Vintage Rose room and it was absolutely beautiful and clean.The inn is back in the country and away from all the hustle and bustle of tourism traffic. Needless to say it was quiet and relaxing. We celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary and are already planning to go back next year. What a beautiful place to go to get away.
4.2 on September 20, 2009
When you stay here the owners will give you that feeling on not wanting to leave. You will have total comfort and peace. Your wish is their command. This is about the 10 year of staying there. The rooms and ammenities are first class. The combination of all the things they offer makes it a wonderful place to stay and be pampered.
5 on September 20, 2009
One word says it all....Awesome... from the time you drive up to the main door till you leave I felt so comfortable..like visiting old friends. The rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was surperb and Loretta and Paul were great .. their knowlege of the area was out standing and very helpful.. I am defilniatley going back to Holmes County and The Barn Inn.. Thanks Loretta and Paul

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and we were very happy with our experience at The Barn Inn! Paul and Loretta are great hosts and very helpful in giving locations of places to go during our stay. The rooms are very clean and the breakfasts were very good. We plan to come back!

Our stay at the Barn Inn was most enjoyable. We were treated like family and the food was tasty and very well served. Loretta and Paul are excellent hosts and the staff seems to be hand picked. Loretta answered all our questions about the Amish people and directed us to homes where we shopped. Our first but not the last trip to the Barn Inn. We are also inviting our friends to visit this wonderful find in the heart of the Amish country. Edith and Mary Alice Bailey, Greenup, KY.
5 on September 19, 2009
My husband and I stayed for our second anniversary and we will be back! We were so impressed with our room and the jacuzzi was such a wonderful addition to the room. It was so nice to be somewhere quiet and peaceful with just the two of us. Loretta's breakfast was amazing... I wish I had her scrambled egg recipe! :-) We will definitely be back to visit!
5 on September 18, 2009
After having lived a lifetime within a hours drive of the largest global Amish community, my wife and I finally decided to visit and see what it was all about. Both of us have high stress jobs working for large global businesses in the Akron Ohio area. Before we even arrived at The Barn Inn, the drive through picturesque Wayne and Holmes county helped begin to shed the weight from our shoulders. The Barn Inn itself was a true delight with clean and amenable rooms which are conducive to intimate moments. What really made it special though was the hospitality of the Innkeeper, Loretta. Her local knowledge and understanding of the community made the visit complete. I haven't had a more relaxing time in years. And what a breakfast! Heartily recommended for those that want to escape the pressures of everyday life and gain insight into the spirit of a community of folks that have chosen to live in in a more stress free way for their entire lives.
5 on September 18, 2009
This was my first experience at a Bed and Breakfast Inn and was delighted in every way. Situated in the middle of Amish farm country, it was surreal observing the numerous Amish in their working environment. A highlight was Loretta giving us information about a local very conservative Amish farm where we could purchase baskets. They were well made, reasonably priced, and a treasure because of having seen their actual weavers. I'll definitely be revisiting this top-of-the-line inn in its memorable setting.
4.6 on September 18, 2009
the owners were very helpful with directions and things to do. they opened their home to us made us feel like family.

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast. A very wonderful experience. We have stayed in many homes, and hotels and this was the cleanest of them all. I am very picky about having a clean room, and this place was spotless. The food was wonderful, Lorettas breakfasts were tasty, and very filling. We loved Loretta and Pauls stories about the Amish, and the great advice about places to visit while in town. I would HIGHLY recommend The Barn Inn, it is easy to see why it is one of the top Inns in the country.
4.6 on September 13, 2009
This Barn Inn is a beautiful restoration of a 1919 dairy barn in the heart of the Ohio Amish country. The breakfasts were great, and the friendly owners shared interesting stories of their Amish and Mennonite backgrounds.

This was our first time at the Barn Inn and in Holmes County. Loretta and Paul were wonderful and such interesting hosts. We had the Renaissance Room and it was exquisite. The breakfasts that Loretta made were out of this world. She and Paul were so helpful in telling us the most interesting places to go and the best deals around. Their Amish history was very entertaining as well. I can't wait to go back. There's so much more we would like to experience. We definitely plan on returning to the Barn Inn. Thank you Loretta and Paul for making our 1st visit so memorable.
4.4 on September 10, 2009
We used the GPS co-ordinates form the Inn websight and that was great. Our reception was first class and the room was well located and clean. We enjoyed the home made breakfasts and the interaction with the other guests. Overall we had a very pleasant stay and Loretta and Paul were excellent hosts and very valuable resources for local information. We plan to return and will recommend the Inn to our friends.

We visited the first year The Barn Inn opened and have returned many time. It is always our home away from home in Holmes County. Paul and Loretta are great hosts and the breakfast is awesome. Could not be better.
5 on September 09, 2009
To receive an education about the wonderful Amish People is a delight. No matter what our differences we are all a part of God's Plan. A beautiful part of Ohio farmland and scenery was so enjoyable as well as meeting such wonderful people from all walks of life. It was very calm and serene which leaves you refreshed and renewed to return to our seperate lives where we can be inspirational to those we live and work with. Thank you for working so hard to give that to us.

This was a return visit to The Barn Inn. Everything was even better than the first visit. Even with all of the bed and breakfasts in the area I would not stay anywhere else. It was truly a comfortable and relaxing stay.
4.6 on September 05, 2009
My wife and I stayed here a couple of nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. We have only stayed at a B&B one other time but The Barn Inn exceeded all our expectations. We reserved one of the smaller rooms but still found it very roomy, the bed was very comfortable, and everything was neat as a pin. Each room opens out to the back deck so we were able to enjoy the pleasant evenings on the "back porch". The large front room or lobby was great to hang out in as well. As a side note, the wireless internet speed was very fast. The food was outstanding. Each morning brought a hearty breakfast, and the sausage was amazing. My wife and I left "stuffed" every morning. And there were always cakes, muffins, or cookies for snacks each evening. Every morning after breakfast Loretta would tell us about great little "out of the way" places to go in Amish country. Neat places and people we would never have found on our own. She also included great facts, history, and personal anecdotes about her Amish experiences and friends. We can't wait to go back. It was the perfect blend of Restful and Fun. Thanks Paul & Loretta for inviting us into your home!
4.6 on September 04, 2009
Thank you for a wonderful tri a peaceful setting. My family (including 3 small children) felt welcome and accomodated. We LOVED the room, breakfast and exploring the gardens around the barn. Most of all, we appreciate your insight and willingness to explain the Amish customs and lifestyle. We've stayed in different hotels and inns in Amish country, but we've found our new, favorite place to stay!

We were on holiday from the north east coast of Scotland. Friends booked and we thought it excellent. (Aug.2009)The room was lovely and so clean. Everything was there including (make up removal wipes)which I had forgotten to take! The staff were so nice and the lady herself (loretta) was lovely. She thought of everything. We are christians and the morning brreakfast began with an introduction all round and a beautiful prayer. The food was excellent. We met and talked with others and the atmosphere was so friendly. will always remember our stay and would tell others to go if in the area. Elma & Jack Fraser. Scotland.

We had a wonderful time while staying at The Barn Inn. We loved how Loretta came and talked while we had breakfast and explained many things about the Amish. It made it more personal that she took the time to do this. We will definitely be back and in fact we are coming back in October with 3 other couples. Thank you again for the great hospitality.

Loretta and Paul welcome you into their 24 room home. You feel like family. This beautiful restored 1939 barn offers hominess and luxury at the same time. Each day you have a wonderful country breakfast. Then Loretta and Paul share the sights that you won't want to miss in the county of the Amish. The Inn is tucked away to offer a quiet and restful atmosphere, but it is easily accessible to all area attractions. Don't miss this wonderful stay while in Northern Ohio. We will definitely go back.

The room we stayed in, The Renaissance was exquisite! Very tastefully decorated and not lacking a single ammenity. Satellite TV, DVD player, VCR player, unusual lighting, and wonderful Jaccuzi. Could not have asked for anything better. The breakfast was great and Amish Information provided by the Innkeeper and her husband was very heartfelt and accurate. Gave insight into a People only an hours drive from home that I had not heard before. Overall a top notch experience!!!

Heavenly experience. Pleasant surroundings. Courtious staff. Clean..clean...clean. Great food. Lovely host and hostess. Fabulous accomodations.They couldn't do enough for us. Peaceful country environment. One of the most memorable vacations I've had. We plan on re-visiting.We loved all the special touches and morning chats. Thanks to Loretta and Paul for a charming experience.

I wish we could have spent more time at the Inn; we were only there for one evening and breakfast. It was a beautiful environment, with many unique and historical pieces around. And the countryside on the way there was breathtaking. I look forward to being able to visit there again.

We happened upon this inn by fate and am extremely thankful we did! I accidently reserved the wrong date at another hotel in the area and was referred to The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast and truly believe my mistake was our benefit! Loretta and Paul were extremely gracious hosts and were extremely knowledgeable of the area and the Amish way of life. We experienced car trouble on a Friday night when all repair shops were closed. Paul was able to locate an establishment to repair our vehicle on Saturday. While we were without a vehicle Loretta generously allowed us unlimited use of one of their vehicles! Truly exceptional customer service. The inn is absolutely beautiful and well kept. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, historical, romantic, off-the beaten-path getaway - this is exactly what you're looking for! If I ever return to Holmes County I will be visiting The Barn Inn again. Thanks Loretta & Paul!

The best place I have ever stayed! The room was clean and very well apointed. The owners even helped me when I had car trouble!
4.6 on September 01, 2009
We stayed in one of the simpler rooms, an amazing value considering the exquisite breakfast that was included in the price. The Barn Inn's strong point is the wonderful hospitality of the owners. Couple that with the serene atmosphere, the lovely setting, the beautiful rooms and the overall great value, and The Barn Inn is a place we will be sure to return to and would recommend to all friends! Morris and Beth Book

Wonderful welcoming innkeepers, peaceful setting and the cleanist room I've ever stayed in.... very very comfortable please to say.

Our stay at The Barn Inn was wonderful. We had never been there before so we weren't sure what to expect. We thought it was going to be one of those places you only dream about going to, expecting the rates to be way over your head. But we were pleasantly surprised. If it wasn't for the reasonable rates, we probably would not have considered it. Besides the rates, the residents, Loretta & Paul were so pleasant and knowledgeable about the area. The country breakfast was very good. The next time we take a trip to the Amish country, this is where we will stay. Thank you so much, Rod & Melanie R., Bucyrus, Ohio
5 on August 31, 2009
We had such an awsome time staying here and would most definitely come back. The owners treated us like family, even went out of there way to inform us with the history of the surrounding community with heart and soul. We even was treated to a class on making Christmas cookies it was just so awsome Thank You all Teena and Cindy From Dayton and Tampa

Always used hotels in the past. Our wonderful experience will have us looking for Bed and Breakfast in future travels. Needless to say when we return to "Amish Country" we"ll be staying here!
4.4 on August 30, 2009
This beautiful setting was a great stat to our weekend. Breakfast was great and the informative talk by Loretta and Paul was most helpful in getting around the area. I have been to the area since I was a child at least 3-4 times a year but Loretta pointed out so many things I've never seen and enjoyed so much! Make sure to aks her about the Baskets! We will be back!

My family and I were looking for an infant friendly B&B in Amish country and this was one of the few who not only advertised itself to be "kid" friendly but who truly delivered on that promise. I highly recommend this establishment.
5 on August 27, 2009
A beautiful bed and breakfast describes The Barn Inn. An idyllic setting in the heart of Amish country. Offers a restful, quiet and tranquil stay off the beaten path of the busy highways. Loretta and Paul made us welcome and feel at home. Each breakfast was great with delicious food, meats, breads, juices, fruit, tea and coffee. Every morning, each quest introduced themselves to other guests and then after breakfast, Loretta and Paul would talk about the surrounding countryside, describing the lives and customs of the Amish people, where to shop and recommend restaurants serving lunch and dinner. They would also answer questions by the guests and direct them to specific areas of interest. The rooms are furnished with antique furniture, bathrooms and HD TV with Dish availability/VCR/DVD players. In conclusion, an enjoyable stay at a great bed and breakfast. I would heartily recommend The Barn Inn to anyone who wants a first class establishment to spend a few days sightseeing and relaxing.

My husband and I were always wanting to try a Bed and Breakfast what an awesome treat and so relaxing as well. Loretta was so knowledgable and advised where to go to see things. We's like to come back soon thanks for an awesome time.

Our stay at The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast was outstanding! We appreciated the amenities available, the privacy of the rooms, and the hospitality of Loretta and Paul. We definitely plan to return!

The quantity of meat for breakfast was not enough for the amount of people that they were serving.
Thank you for your recent stay and your review. I am sorry that you did not have enough ham or sausage. In preparing for guests, I always calculate two pieces of meat per person, and I am always prepared, upon request, to provide more from the kitchen. Typically we have meat left over. I am so very sorry if there were not two servings available for you. We try to keep an eye on the server to make sure that servings are adequate. We hope you will consider another stay. Keep in mind that from January - about April we offer our special Maple-flavored sausage that is "To Die For".
5 on August 25, 2009
My husband and I recently stayed at The Barn Inn and this cozy little hideway far exceeded our expectations. It was undoubtedly the cleanest place we have ever stayed. Loretta and Paul were great proprietors. We were served a wonderful home-cooked breakfast each morning and they would share where to visit within the area, share their stories, and educated us about the Amish. We plan to return and stay at The Barn Inn in the future. I've already recommended this place to many friends.
5 on August 24, 2009
The Barn Inn was our first visit to a B & B and we were pleased beyond our expectations. The innkeeper's insight to the region and her willingness to share the history as well as recommended stops made our trip to the area very rewarding. We look forward to returning for another stay.
4.6 on August 24, 2009
The one and only thing I had to even complain about is that the mattresses are not very comfortable in the standard rooms. Have stayed there before and they definitely need an upgrade on the bedding in the original rooms.
Thank you for your stay with us and for your comments. Your comfort is of utmost importance to us. This summer we have replaced a few mattresses in the standard rooms, upgrading to plush luxury pillow-top mattresses. It would be most helpful if you would email me to tell me which room you were in, so that we know which mattress to replace next. Again, thank you for your review. It is only through your honesty that we are aware of needed improvements and learn how we can contribute to an exceptional customer experience.

Wow! This is one of the nicest bed and breakfast we have ever visited. However, we really had no idea what places to visit in the Amish community. Check in was not until later, but we stopped to ask if they could steer us in the right direction for places to see in the area. They did not let us down! We visited some of the best places within the community that we would have never found on our own. Kuddos to the wonderful place to stay, super breakfast and awesome hospitality!
5 on August 23, 2009
We are still talking about our recent stay at the Barn Inn. Paul and Loretta's gracious hospitality have made our stay most memorable. The rooms were filled with country charm and atmosphere. Their dedication to keeping guests comfortable made me feel like I was at home. The breakfasts were truly delicious and we hope to get many of her recipes. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean. We followed Loretta's recommendations shared with us at breakfast about places to go in the local community and felt all her advice allowed us to truly experience the Amish way of life. When we left, I felt like we made friends with Loretta and Paul and look forward to visiting again.

we had a wonderful stay and enjoyed Loretta's morning talk about where to go and tips on the area. Ernie & Judy Parent
4.2 on August 22, 2009
We picked The Barn for our 16th anniversary get-away, and had a wonderful time. This was our first visit to The Barn and won't be the last! We had a delicious dinner in an Amish home. Loretta made the reservations for us. The French Country room was pleasant and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and Loretta's information on Amish culture and off the beaten path shops and sights was very helpful. We really appreciated the handout with specific directions. Couldn't have found places like Yoder's Bargain Store without the directions and GPS!! Thanks so much for an enjoyable time!!
4.8 on August 21, 2009
Our stay at The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast more than exceeded our expectations! Both Loretta and Paul were outstanding host and definitely made us feel a part of a family environment. From the time we arrived and they greeted us, to the morning we left. They really met every request we had and made us feel write at home. We were travelling on motorcycles and they were so willing to allow us to have full use of their facility. It was just as if we were at home. The evening snacks that Loretta made were always a great ending to our day. She made superb breakfast meals and her history of the Amish Country was always very intriguing. She was always able to give personal experiences and really made it very interesting. there was so much right at the Inn to enjoy you could just stay there and relax, which most people forget to do during their vacation. If you want a place to stay where you can relax yet close to all the sights, this is the place to stay. We would definitely visit Holmes County again and there is not doubt where we would stay; The Barn Inn. We are considering going to the first Saturday in December for the Christmas Inn Celebration, it sounds so inviting. Loretta, thank you for making our visit such a wonderful, relaxing and definitely enjoying time. You and Paul are the best!! May God bless you until the next time we are there. Take care.
5 on August 20, 2009
My wife and I first visited the Barn Inn 12 years ago, shortly after Loretta and Paul opened this outstanding B&B. We were totally pleased with all aspects of the Inn, especially the wonderful breakfasts included during our 4 days here. We looked forward to our return visit to compare it to the first one. This time even surpassed our first experience! You can be assured we won't wait very long this time before enjoying Loretta and Paul's hospitality. They have anticipated a guest's every need. The decor of each guest room is outstanding, and the grounds also are lovely, lending a very peaceful ambiance.
4.8 on August 19, 2009
My husband and I were very pleased with not only the quality of the room and facility but with the friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts. While we only stayed one evening, this will not be our last visit. God Bless,

Loretta Coblentz and her husband, Paul, are natives of the area. Their hospitality is warm, their knowledge of Holmes County is substantial, their helpfulness beyond question. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them.
4.8 on August 18, 2009
This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast Inn. We spent two nights and wished it would have been more. The accommodations were outstanding and the hospitality shown by Paul and Loretta was much appreciated. Loretta was very knowledgeable about the Amish lifestyle and her insights into the culture were quite fascinating. She was also very helpful in recommending places of interest to see and shop. All in all, four thumbs up from this satisfied couple.
5 on August 18, 2009
The Barn Inn is a lovely and very quiet Inn. The room was very plush and comfortable. The bed was nice and comfortable.The setting is out in the country and a very nice place to return to after visiting in the Amish area. Breakfast was delicious each morning. After breakfast each morning Loretta, the Innkeeper would spend about 30 minutes talking about different places to see in the area and about Amish customs. A lovely Inn.
4.6 on August 17, 2009
Loretta & Paul have created a wonderful, friendly, outstanding inn. We loved their sharing of the Amish lifestyle during the breakfasts, which were delicious. They provided a lot of information from a different perspective than we had experienced. They made wonderful suggestions of places to visit during our stay. We will definitely make a return visit!

My name is Joe Hamelin. I do not usually utilize B & B's. My first venture was one in Lancaster Pa. which proved to be a good experience. I searched th Holmes County area for a B&B and to my good fortune discovered the Barn Inn. The experience has made me a converted B&B enthusiast. Thed room was very well appointed, service was great as well as the food and the way it was presented. All that aside I really feel that the most impressive thing was the feeling that we were in a family "home" rather than an inn. All I can say is "Loretta we love you and we will be back".
4.8 on August 15, 2009
A wonderful quiet and peaceful retreat. Paul and Loretta's hospitality made you feel at home. They were very knowledgeable about what to see and do in the area. Delicious breakfast and tasty afternoon snacks. We will be going back in the Fall.
5 on August 15, 2009
The owners of the Barn Inn donated a night's stay to our grandchildren's school for a fund raiser. My wife's parents had lived in the farmhouse in the early 1940's and farmed the land. She now got to sleep in the barn. The stay was most pleasant, breakfast was delicious, and the room was tastefully decorated. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed everything about the stay.
5 on August 14, 2009
We have stayed in B&b's in several countries, and the Barn Inn is the best of all. The innkeeper is welcoming and extremely knowledgeable conderning attractions in the area. Her breakfast would make the top chefs in New York City jealous. The rooms look as if they were decorated by a team of professionals. KThe Barn Inn is the place to stay if you are anywhere near Homes County Ohio.
4.8 on August 12, 2009
in the beautiful countryside the Barn is the perfect place to stay. The breakfast was the very best you can have!

They have a beautiful B&B and could not be more gracious hosts. We had a wonderful time and will definately come back again. Rosanne & Dave Beveridge
4.6 on August 11, 2009
A luxurious home away from home. The room and jacuzzi were spotless and comfortable. We looked forward to the wonderfully cooked breakfast each morning. It was all the little touches that will make us returning guests. The inn keepers have a wealth of information about the area and will send you to places that the average tourist would never know about. We were able to raid the movie cabinet every night and also enjoyed multiple books/videos about the history of the area. We also loved looking at all the details concerning the construction and decorating of the inn.
5 on August 10, 2009
This was one of the most charming and romantic trips my husband and I have ever taken and we have traveled quite extensively. We thoroughly enjoyed The Barn Inn and would go back "in a flash" if it wasn't for this "pesky little thing" called WORK. Anyway, tastefully decorated "to the tee", our hosts were hospitable 150% plus, and the setting was absolutely serene... just "what the doctor ordered" for two people that work way too hard on a regular basis. What a lovely "break in the action." We would highly recommend The Barn Inn to others for an experience you are not soon to forget! Enjoy!!!
5 on August 09, 2009
Paul and Loretta at the Barn Inn were wonderful hosts and they also provided a list of Amish places to visit and places to pick up wonderful Amish made baskets and rugs at very low prices. Their country breakfasts were out of this world. Thank You
3.2 on August 08, 2009
It was a comfortable place; peaceful and I was able to rest, relax, refresh and enjoy.
5 on August 07, 2009
The Barn looks very simple from the outside but as you walk in the front door you are surrounded by an overwhelming feeling of peace, comfort, and nourishment. Your stress and cares immediately melt away, unlike most vacations where it takes days to really relax and find relief. The facility is beautiful but the real beauty is the atmosphere which renews your spirit and feeds your soul. It feels like a safe haven, a retreat, not a typical B&B.
5 on August 05, 2009
The Barn Inn is a perfect place to stay when visiting Amish Country. The inn itself is amazingly clean and comfy! Loretta and Paul are very friendly and helpful. The inn is peaceful, yet access to the local communities is top notch. The breakfast is definitely worth waking up for! I would HIGHLY recommend The Barn Inn to anyone!
5 on August 04, 2009
My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this past weekend and as I'm over a 1000 miles away I was torn as to what to get them for this special day. A frame? dinner? What could I do that would celebrate this special occassion? Then I found a website for The Barn Inn.....what a great find. I was able to pay for 2 nights for them and I just got the call after their trip....they had a fantastic time! They loved the quaint and relaxing atmosphere and said the room was "swanky"... lol... Thanks so much Paul and Loretta! You were a life saver.
4.2 on August 03, 2009
To find such a peaceful and blessed place it is truley a gift for us to have spent time with Loretta and Paul. We absolutly cannot wait to return for another weekend. The Barn Inn should be put at the top of anyones list of things to do and places to go. Believe me when i say that you will not find anything finer that this place. and come there hungry because if anyhting else, Loretta's cooking and Paul's jokes will keep you comming back for more.

We have stayed at many B & B's, but this is by far the best. I cannot think of one thing that I would change. We can't wait to go back!

We've been to the Barn Inn at least four times since they opened. Each time we think it won't be the same....and it isn't. It just keeps getting better. Very relaxing, family owned and in a peaceful setting. Great breakfast and an exceptionally clean throughout. Can't wait to go again.

We wanted to get away from the hussle & bussle of everyday life and chose The Barn Inn after checking many over the Internet. As we drove along the country road, we wondered what we had gotten into, but as we came upon the Barn Inn we were not disappointed. We spent 2 wonderful nights at the Inn and Loretta and her staff prepared a wonderful breakfast for us as well as insight into the beautiful area of Holmes County, Ohio. We hope to go back to the Barn Inn many times in the future!

Enjoy your visit- we certainly did!- Cheri, Springfield VA

When first walking up to The Barn, you are in amazement at how wonderful the place is. As you continue through the doors you are warmly greeted by a smiling face excited that you are there. Once you are checked in and shown around the Inn you are free, and strongly encouraged, to make yourself at home. Everything about the Inn is beyond what one might expect. The warm and friendly atmosphere is wonderful. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for somewhere to spend some time where cell phones may not reach!!! ~Kristin & Roger

My girlfriend and I spent the night at The Barn Inn last night. What a delightful place to stay. It was very clean, very quiet, and they tried to accomodate every need that might occur. My friend did go to breakfast this morning and said it was delicious and that the hostess shared many interesting facts about the area. We definitely plan to return to this location.

4 women chose the Barn Inn from google and the internet and we were so very happy with our choice - we had 2 rooms at one end of the inn and were all to ourselves - frig and all --- Loreta was the perfect house - didn't meet her husband but even though she was not feeling well she gave a beautiful talk each morning after breakfast that lead us to some wonderful basket, leather, and cheese shopping. We would love to visit the Barn Inn again some time -- you are really missing out if you don't try this place - even if just for the carrotcake pancakes!!!
4.8 on July 21, 2009
This was the second stay at The Barn Inn. It was as relaxing and refreshing as the first. The rooms are wonderful and the breakfast is out of this world. We find the history of the area and recommended sites to visit very helpful.

The atmosphere was amazing Paul and Lorreta are the greatest. The breakfast was excellent. My wife and I will definately be back.

Our introduction to The Barn Inn was through our chidren - They gave us (plus my 91 yr. old mother) a one night stay, dinner at Mrs. Yoder's, and another gift certificate at Heini's Cheese for a Christmas present. We added another day and we were overwhelmed by the hospitality, and over-all setting of The Barn Inn. Breakfast wasn't breakfast but "brunch" - we had so much wonderful food that lunch was always much later in the afternoon. Our room was beyond our expectations. We had the "suite" with fridge, stove, & microwave - plus a separate equally beautifully designed bedroom. The entire facility was a work of art, comfort, & elegance. We highly recommend the Barn Inn for your next stay.... We plan to go back next year. Thank you and God Bless..... jwk,gek, emw

We were thrilled to enjoy the serenity and quiet of the Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast to celebrate out fifth wedding anniversary. The elegance and seclusion of this oasis were everything that the website offered. The owner Loretta was a joy to meet and share breakfast with. She entertained us with helpful information about the local area and her personal stories were the "icing on the cake." We could easily recommend this get away without hesitation. Thanks for giving us a memorable time!

Friendly, welcoming, enthusiastic owner. Beautifully decorated Victorian. The evening snack of pecan pie was to die for. The "from scratch" breakfast seemed to never end and was beyond delicious. The owner was so informative re the Amish culture.
5 on July 18, 2009
What an experience! It was just what we needed for a getaway vacation. The peacefulness, friendliness, and awesome breakfasts were just what we needed. Can't wait to come back.
5 on July 18, 2009
Upon arriving at the inn, the atmosphere was inviting and our host was wonderful. Each day Loretta's talks concerning the area sights to see was informative and interesting. I would go back tomorrow if i could.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Barn Inn. Our room was beautiful (The Renaissance), and HUGE, with a back entrance onto the balcony. We loved the chocolates that were left for us, and our breakfast was hot and delicious. LOVED the carrot pancakes, with cream cheese spread! Loretta was VERY helpful in directing us to the interesting places. We purchased a $4 map of the area from her (with backroads detailed), and she gave us a 3 page handout of places to see. She is so knowledgable of the area, and made our wanderings very fruitful! Every morning, she gives a "talk", recommending things to see. We were able to go into an Amish home and purchase BEAUTIFUL, well-crafted baskets. We would not have found this shop without Loretta! I would DEFINITELY stay here, again! -Brad and Melinda

We had another great visit. We love trying all the different rooms. Loved the new addition of the garden and fountain in the rear of the property. The potted flowers on the porches are just beautiful.
4.6 on July 16, 2009
This was our second trip to the Barn Inn and we would easily go back again. This is a perfect inn to learn about the Amish community. The innkeepers both came from Amish families. It is also a perfect place to rest and "regroup" your life. Bring a book, relax and enjoy the near-by goats, sheep and woods. The surrounding area is great if you are a quilter or a woodworker. The innkeepers will lead you to near-by hardware stores/quilt shops/lumber yards and any other place of interest.
5 on July 16, 2009
We were in awe at the beauty of "The Barn". We were greeted warmly and made to feel at home. Loertta is a gracious hostess. Breakfast is a relaxed meal and sooooo good. Loved our stay!
4.4 on July 15, 2009
I've stayed at many B & B's across the country and this is definitely the most unique since it was an actual barn prior to being renovated. It is also one of the cleanest I've ever seen. The owners are delightful; they clearly enjoy being hosts and have thought of every last detail- right down to supplying an instructional diagram of the satellite television remote for the technologically challenged! Overall, this was a very pleasant experience- just wish I could have stayed longer than one night!
5 on July 15, 2009
Beautiful and peacful! Excellent customer service with all the comforts of home. We were on our motorcycle when we called the Barn to see if they had any available rooms. When we arrived and Loretta realized we were on a motorcycle, she offered a parking spot under cover of the Barn for the motorcycle; not many places are that accommodating! We were provided with a tour of the Barn and its history. Our room was first rate..clean, comfortable, beautiful, with a patio and a patio table for our use; and we can not leave out the in room Jacuzzis! The delicious breakfast the next morning, along with the innkeeper, Loretta's, presentation regarding the area, left us ready to start our day. We will definitely return to the Barn Inn and have already recommended it to numerous people! Karen, Ohio
5 on July 15, 2009
My husband I stayed here for our 16th anniversary, and we loved it! The Coblentz's are the perfect hosts, and the inn itself is full of charm and comfort. I highly recommend staying here if you're visiting Holmes county.
4.4 on July 15, 2009
LORETTA & PAUL ARE WONDERFUL HOSTS THE BREAKFASTS WERE OUT OF THIS WORLD THEY WERE VERY HELPFUL WITH HISTORY OF THE AREA AND GOOD PLACES TO VISIT THE ROOMS ARE GORGEOUS WOULD RECOMMEND STAYING HERE AND WILL STAY AGAIN WHEN IN THE AREA
4.8 on July 14, 2009
Our second visit, we were again rewarded with a warm and friendly place to stay. We saw many improvements to the Inn, including aexpaded capacity, in-room DVDs and VHS movies, and suggestions on palces to visit.
5 on July 14, 2009
We always get the most wonderful greeting when signing in! Loretta makes us feel like a part of her and Pauls family.The rooms are the nicest we have ever stayed in. The food is really excellent and gives you a lot of choices. The decorating is aone, Loretta has the magic touch. We have stayed at the Inn 6 or 7 times. We recommend it to anyone who enjoys being treated like a king or queen

My first stay at the Barn Inn was quite memorable. As we entered this quietly situated lodge, we were greeted by Loretta, the owner, cook, and tour guide. She welcomed us with freshly baked pastries & cookies every evening, and led us to a library full of movies to enjoy. Pop corn and various tea and drinks were available complimentary to all guest. The room was nice and we enjoyed the quiet setting. The best part was waking up to the smell of fresh farmer's breakfast buffet. Everything was so delicious and made the trip wonderful. Thank you, Barn Inn.
5 on July 13, 2009
My husband and I are hooked, we will be back soon. The Barn Inn is such a beautiful and relaxing place to be. The location is of the Inn is so picturesque , we did not want to come home. We found this place on a whim and could not believe how fortunate we were to take are chances on visiting somewhere we knew nothing about. Since coming home, we have told all of our friends and family about this place and now we have everyone curious and wanting to visit as well. The rooms are decorated beautifully, the breakfast was delicious and the service is most friendly. You have got to visit this place at least once.
5 on July 13, 2009
We had the most perfect anniversary here at The Barn Inn. Our experience exceeded our expectations and couldn't have been better. How interesting to learn of the culture from Loretta and Paul. Having come from Amish backgrounds, they know a lot! We would recommend this to anyone desiring a quiet, clean, romantic spot with outstanding breakfasts.
5 on July 13, 2009
It met my needs to get away to a peaceful setting. There was a very warm welcome and yet it wasn't overbearing. It was a wonderful experience. I would go back again.
5 on July 12, 2009
Not only are the staff very cordial and helpful, but they go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. We felt very pampered and enjoyed all the amenities. We'll definitely stay again!
4.2 on July 11, 2009
This Inn exceeded our expections, for a quiet, relaxing country setting. The staff were amazingly helpful. Handicapped access and functionality was fairly good compared to many B&B's. Would recommend a few minor changes to improve accessibility & functionality for those with limited mobility. Will definately return to The Barn Inn again!
5 on July 11, 2009
The scenery around the inn is lovely. The inn is decorated so nicely and Loretta pays attention to little details that make your stay there so charming. There was a picture in our bedroom of the former owners of the original barn and their children. There was a DVD about the Amish people who could borrow and watch in your room. Loretta pointed out places to drive to see the beautiful countryside. I loved all those touches. We loved the balcony and the breakfast was fantastic!!!!! I would highly recommend this inn to anyone staying in Homes County.
4.2 on July 11, 2009
Owners are very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

We went to The Barn Inn on an anniversary get away. We totally loved the atmosphere, the history behind the barn, and the great talk during breakfast about the Amish communities! We would recommend The Barn Inn to anyone. We are even thinking of it as a possible gift for our adult children at some point. Thanks for providing such a great getaway! --The Zimmers from Marietta, Ohio. PS - The breakfast was fantastic!

It is nice, quiet, and peaceful! The rooms are very comfortable. There are places to get snacks and pop popcorn. I loved that they had popcorn for the guests! It is very romantic to go to if a couple is needing a little time away from kids and time together!

nice little place in very quite country setting, Great experience. Definately reccommended.
5 on July 07, 2009
The Barn Inn is one of our favorite places to stay because of the service, quality of the rooms and the excellent breakfast. We especially enjoy the time that Loretta and Paul make for each of their guests and getting Loretta's tips for places to go in the area.
5 on July 07, 2009
The Barn Hosts provide the most informative and rewarding picture of the area places and people along with the most friendly service and inspiring breakfasts. They go out of their way to be of service and you feel at home.

My husband and I had the wonderful experience and pleasure of staying at the "Barn Inn". Our room was the beautiful Renaissance room. It was outstanding to say the very least! Loretta and Paul were wonderful hosts. The Inn was extremely clean, both inside and out. We have found a new home away from home!!! Katie and Larry Patton
4.8 on July 06, 2009
The Barn Inn was such a perfect fit for our first anniversary together. The stay was very relaxing and enjoyable. I don't have enough words to describe the great breakfast we had. A return visit is a must. Thanks Lorretta and Paul. John and Becky
4.2 on July 05, 2009
All four of us loved our one night stay at the Barn Inn and tried to get a second night but they were all booked. Very comfortable, clean and extremely helpful and friendly. Would love to stay here again.
5 on July 05, 2009
Friendly, accommodating service. Clean rooms. Peaceful surroundings. The breakfasts were served in a dining area where everyone ate together. The Innkeeper did such a nice job of introducing each person and making you feel at home and connected. After a delicious breakfast of stuffed French toast with cherry sauce, fruit cups, sausage, toast and coffee or tea we were given a “what to do in Holmes County” talk filled with information and options for our day. We followed Loretta’s advice and had such a wonderful experience while in the area. We would certainly recommend this Inn to anyone and we are already dreaming of our next opportunity to stay there again.
5 on July 05, 2009
This was a beautiful place....the rooms were gorgeous and had such a "welcoming" feel to them..I am fussy about staying away...and let me tell you it was so clean....i mean clean , clean...the inkeepers were wonderful...the breakfast was so good and it was such so wonderful....so i would have to say it took my breath away........Thank you for a wonderstay...we have not stopped about talking about it to friends and family....we will be back.....:) The Young's from PA :)

4.4 on June 29, 2009
We came up here with no expectations. Our inn keepers directed us on where to go and what to do. Everything was wonderful, the atmosphere, the accommodations, and the experience was very relaxing. Yet there was a peaceful romantic flare to our room. We will return to this wonderful place away from the hustle and bustle where you can breathe in the fresh country air, eat wonderful food, and find true refreshment for your souls.
5 on June 28, 2009
We stayed at the Barn Inn while celebrating our first anniversary. Loretta and Paul, the innkeepers, had roses waiting in our room. The room was beautiful with a jacuzzi tub. The breakfast was wonderful and a special dietary meal was made for us. Loretta gave highlights of the area to visit after breakfast each morning and it made the visit unique. We saw places that were off the commercial trail and gave us an up close look at Amish living. The Barn Inn is wonderful, and the area is incredible. It was a nice anniversary.
5 on June 28, 2009
Clean,quiet, wonderful breakfast. I liked being able to access the room from 2 doors, inside and outside.

Fantastic place to rest at a great price.
5 on June 28, 2009
We have been to this Area 5 times now, each time staying at a different B&B or Inn. The Barn Inn is SUPERIOR!! The solitude in it's location offers anyone the ability to disconnect from the craziness of today's lifestyles. Yet, the Innkeepers make you feel like your "coming home"! And the value of what you get for your money is unmatched! I could just stay forever! My husband I know I we will be returning to the area over and over again, now we also know where we will be staying over and over again! Thank You Loretta and Paul for creating such a wonderful Treasure and sharing it as you do!! It's FANTASTIC and so are the two of you! Sincerely, The Horstmans
4.2 on June 28, 2009
With a bottle of wine, cheese & grapes on the balcony, we had a nice relaxing stay in beautiful Amish country.
5 on June 28, 2009
We have stayed twice now at Paul and Loretta's home and will continue when we are in the county. Their hospitality is so refreshing! Very down to earth and very gracious. Their information given at breakfast helps tremendously in knowing where the best areas are to enjoy. The room we have is gorgeous and so clean. We love the jacuzzi after a full day on our feet. I highly recommend staying in the Country Charm room. Thank you, Paul and Loretta for a perfect getaway!! Fred and Nancy Houston, Pa.
5 on June 24, 2009
This is the most outstanding place I have ever stayed. The Barn Inn helped make our 30th wedding anniversary a truly memorable occassion. We are planning a return trip in the fall.
3.6 on June 23, 2009
The surroundings of the Inn went well with what I would expect of a bed and breakfast. Our room was clean and nicely decorated. Owner are very personal and enjoy talking about the history of the Inn. We were treated with carrot pecan pancake w/cream chesse topping for breakfast. Great!
5 on June 23, 2009
A WONDERFUL, RELAXING BED & BREAKFAST. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR A QUIET, PEACEFUL AND EDUCATIONAL VACATION. THE OWNERS PROVIDED INFORMATION ABOUT THE AREA AS WELL AS PROVIDING A WONDERFUL, HOME COOKED BREAKFAST. THE ROOMS WERE EXCEPTIONAL AND THE WATER THEY USE WAS SOFT AND REFRESHING.
5 on June 23, 2009
The Barn Inn is a perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway or for your whole vacation. The Barn is beautifully decorated in antiques and the rooms are immaculate. Loretta and Paul make you feel right at home. We highly recommend it as your next place to stay while in Ohio Amish Country. Oh & be sure to stop in at the basket house while there.
4.6 on June 22, 2009
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this spacious, clean B&B. The room was delightful, the service excellent, and breakfasts delicious! We appreciated the hosts and all they offered. They went above and beyond to give us an insider's view of the local culture. Very impressive!

5 on June 21, 2009
This was our first trip to Holmes County and it definitely will not be our last. We will come back and will stay at the Barn Inn on our next visit. Everything was very impressive from the minute we arrived - the friendliness and knowledge of the innkeepers, the beautiful room, the complimentary snacks and movies, and the delicious breakfast the next morning. My in-laws are planning a trip to Holmes County in the fall and we have already recommended that they stay at the Barn Inn. It was definitely one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. We will be back!!!
5 on June 21, 2009
We stayed in the renessance room and it was the best that I have ever stayed in. It is one of the most expensive rooms but well worth it. Just to be able to come back to your room and relax in a jacuzzi, then sit in a recliner or on a couch instead of the bed was great. It was enjoyabe to sit on the balcony and look at the farm land, the trees and hear the birds chirping. Loretta and Paul are the most hospitable and nicest people you ever want to meet. The breakfast was outstanding. Love her scarmbled eggs and saussage. Will definately stay again.
5 on June 21, 2009
The atmosphere at The Barn Inn is so warm and yet very private. The Innkeepers will make your stay extra special.
5 on June 20, 2009
This "barn" is by no means cold and drafty. What a beautiful facility! The rooms were all the comforts of home, very clean, well equiped, quiet and spacious. The breakfast was exceptional, not just cold cereals and pastries. The innkeepers were very personable and friendly but not in your space. Nestled amoung the hills, the view was spectacular. We were within just a few miles of all the places to visit. What's not to love about The Barn Inn? We couldn't find a thing. I recomend you stay if you get the opportunity, you will not regret it.
4.6 on June 18, 2009
We chose to celebrate our 35th anniversary at the Barn Inn because we loved the idea of staying in a renovated barn.We were not disappointed. The decor in our room"Country Charm "was beautiful. We enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was a country feast . We sat at a farmhouse table with other delightful guests. The Innkeeper ,Loretta and her husband were exceptionally hospitable. Loretta gave a talk at breakfast highlighting local Amish businesses and tourist attractions.We felt very much at home. It is definitely the best place we've ever stayed!
4.4 on June 17, 2009
The hospitality and friendliness of Loretta and Paul was outstanding. The breakfast in the morning was excellent and Loretta's talk about the area was very informative. Our only complaint is that the bed in the Camelot room was terribly uncomfortable. We didn't sleep well at all. We would definitely go back if they got a new mattress!

5 on June 17, 2009
Our stay at The Barn Inn was a gift for Christmas from our daughter and son-in-law. From the time we entered this homespun inn until we left, we felt as if we were special guests of the innkeepers. I recommend Barn Inn for any Holmes County visitors as a quiet, country setting that matches the Amish community.
5 on June 14, 2009
Great stay and wonderful information during breakfast!
5 on June 13, 2009
My husband and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and stayed here for one night out of 15 on the road. It was one of my favorite places that we stayed. I am very picky about cleanliness and I was very satisfied!! My ONLY complaint really had nothing to do with the inn itself, there was no cell phone signal at all in that area. The owners are very friendly and make you very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious! I would stay there again and recommend it to everyone!!
5 on June 13, 2009
Joe and I felt the unwinding process begin as soon as we drove up to the front door. We really needed to ease into vacation mode after a particulary rough 2 weeks at work leading up to our leaving. Loretta and Paul made us feel right at home. Our room was perfect. Country living style with a touch of elegance. All amenities taken care of. Our bed was very comfortable. Both Joe and I have conditions that interfere with a good nights sleep. I was happy to say that the featherbed topper we brought with us was not needed. Yay!! Breakfast was scrumptious. Eggs, exceptionally good sausage,fruit, pancakes, etc.. Coffee was always on and fresh!! I cannot say enough about the tranquility and hospitality the Barn Inn B&B offers vacationers and travelers alike. We actually chose to stay an extra night to enjoy the Inn and the surrounding area. Our room had already been booked for someone else but Loretta offered another room in the new addition at the same rate. That room would normally book at a higher rate and we were extremely pleased and grateful to be treated to the upgrade. Loretta saw to it that our luggage was moved to the new room, while we went out to explore more of the beautiful countryside and gracious people. We found exactly what we needed for the first stop on our amazing vacation/wedding/honeymoon, trip. It was an ahhhhhhh experience from the very first moment. Thank you Loretta and Paul!
4.2 on June 12, 2009
A brief one night stay which was most enjoyable. The Inn Keeper is friendly and interesting to visit with. The room was as one should expect, clean and provisioned. Breakfast was a treat.

We had the best time ever at The Barn Inn!! We can't say enough about the hospitality Loretta & Paul showed. Their insight to the Amish & Loretta's top picks made our visit. Thanks to her we came home with beautiful baskets & a wonderful pie safe at such reasonable prices it was unbelievable. As for breakfast it was beyond superb every day & we were there 4 days. We will certainly tell all my friends & hope to return to Loretta & Paul's hospitality. They really helped make our 40th Anniversary very very special. Doug & Jessie Brassel Blairsville, GA
5 on June 09, 2009
My husband and I recently stayed at The Barn Inn and absolutely fell in love with the inn and everything around it. Paul and Loretta were there to fill any need that we had as well as giving us information about the area. This was our 1st visit to the Amish Country and Loretta helped us to know what sites were a must and gave directions on how to get there. Both Paul and Loretta understood the characteristics of the amish and menonite churches and taught us much of their beliefs. This being our 1st time away from the kids, my husband and I decided to get the "Spoil me Rotten" package which I HIGHLY recommend. The food was wonderful and the reflexologist was out of this world. I recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone wishing to get the most out of their weekend.
5 on June 08, 2009
We have stayed at B&B's before but found The Barn Inn to be one of, if not the best that we have ever e joyed. The price is absolutely attractive. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT!
5 on June 08, 2009
The Barn is a perfect place to just get away and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Amish area in Ohio. Paul and Loretta have seen that The Barn is truly a relaxing get away. Thank you for sharing "The Barn" with us.
3.6 on June 07, 2009
We were made to feel at home in this wonderful, tranquil setting. The perfect getaway for us! Thanks to Loretta and Paul for working so hard to provide a comfortable inn that allowed us to relax and recharge!

I totally enjoyed my stay at The Barn Inn. It is so relaxing there, and so elegant. A wonderful place to get away from it all, and just let the peace wash over you. I hope to go back again. The place was so clean that I felt at home, the food excellent, and the host very friendly and informative!

The Barn Inn provides a warm friendly atmosphere conducive of a great vacation. Loretta and Paul Coblentz are eager to accomodate you in any way. The breakfast is absolutely fantastic! Loretta provides you with multiple suggestions of interesting and entertaining sights and shopping in the area (she is also familiar with Amish culture and eager to share). We never were in doubt when a restaurant was recommended by either Paul or Loretta. The inn's rooms are inviting and beautifully decorated. In the evening there was always a delicious snack and coffee. I would reccommended this bed and breakfast to eveyone!!
4.4 on June 03, 2009
We were quite pleased by the area in which The Barn Inn is located. Loretta is very knowledgeable about the areas points of interest. We stayed in The Rose Garden and the room was very nice. Loretta's breakfasts, very, very good!

Our room was beautifully appointed, and extremely clean. The grounds around the outside were well cared for in a beautiful country setting. The breakfast, though I have never tasted oatmeal pancakes until my recent stay, they were a highlight to the start of my day. I would without a doubt strongly suggest The Barn Inn as a place to stay while visiting the area.
4.4 on May 29, 2009
I was so totally impressed with The Barn Inn! My husband and I were staying in the area and happened to drive by The Barn and I said, "I want to stay there!" I called that very evening for reservations for the next day and Loretta invited us over the next morning to join her guests after breakfast as she told about the Amish culture and gave tips on where to go and what to see. I listened to Loretta 3 mornings..and I learned something new every morning as she shared her knowledge of the area. The information shared was invaluable! Without knowing the ends and outs... we would have thought the Holmes County Amish country consisted only of the main streets in the little communities...we soon realized some of the shops in the little towns were tourist traps..unlike the Amish homes we traveled to (which Loretta recommended) where we purchased goods 1/2 the price they were in town! Okay, about the Inn... we loved staying there! The Barn Inn was so homey, peaceful and top notch...and the breakfast was absolutely fabulous! Loretta's personal touches could be seen throughout the Inn and made all the difference. Having said all that, it was Loretta's prayer at breakfast that sealed my respect for Loretta and what she represents. I have stayed in many B&B's and never has anyone taken the time to pray over the breakfast and speak blessings to all. We will definitely vist The Barn Inn again when we return to Holmes County and I will be recommending it to anyone who will listen. Melody Schutz-Sanderfield, Springfield, IL

Our stay at the Barn Inn in Millersburg, OH was the best we have every experienced in any B & B. The room was well-appointed without being fussy and the room temperature was perfect after a very hot day. A television, DVD player and tape player were available in our room with a video library complete with information about the area. The setting is lovely and the hosts are charming and informative. The food was delicious and snacks readily available. This delightful inn is sure to please and we will return if we are ever in the area again.

We stayed in the Rose Garden room which was beautiful and elegant. It was immaculate. Loeretta and her husband made us feel very much at home. The serenity was a welcome get away from the daily hussle and bustle. I will recommend The Barn B&B to all my friends.
4.8 on May 22, 2009
The most outstanding feature of the barn is the family atmosphere. Loretta and Paul Coblentz treat the guests like family. They join the guests who sit in the living room. They are helpful in identifying places to go and things to do in the area.

This was our third stay at the Barn Inn, so it's obvious that we love it there. Loretta is so kind and welcoming; it feels like we are visiting good friends. Everything about our stay was lovely from the beautiful guest room to the delicious country breakfast. In addition, each morning Loretta shares with the guests her expert knowledge on the Amish culture. Facinating!

Rose Garden room was warm, cozy and extremely comfortable. From the moment we arrived, we were treated to first class, personal and friendly service. Our dinner reservations at a local Inn were arranged for us and breakfast was gourmet quality. We will definitely stay again.

This was my husband and I's first stay at a B&B, and it wont be our last. And it wont be our last to the barn inn. This was truely a wonderful place to stay. The place was so neat and clean, absolutely no hints of past guests. The service and hospitality were one of a kind. Paul and loretta seem to really enjoy what they do. they make you feel like you are right at home. And the food was amazing!

If you are seeking a B&B in a beautiful, rural location, one that provides a home-like atmosphere, serves great food, and promotes total relaxation, the Barn Inn is for you. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful two-night stay.

My 85 year old mother and I stayed four nights in May 2009. The inn is very accessible for the elderly, except for the low toilet in our room, but there was a grab bar to help. The innkeepers are very helpful and have a great knowledge of the area. The breakfasts were great and a nice start to each day.
5 on May 18, 2009
The atmosphere was wonderful and relaxing, and details in both the common areas and our room incomparable. The Barn Inn has so much character that it was more than I could ask for. Loretta was friendly and helpful and gave excellent tips on the locals. I would recommend this to the pickiest person without hesitation.
5 on May 18, 2009
I have never been to a B & B before so this is my first experience and an impressionable one! The family atmosphere the minute you walk in the door was such a welcome! Paul and Loretta are wonderful hosts and appear to really love what they are doing. The cleanliness of the Barn Inn was far above expectation. No hints of past guests, I felt like I was visiting my family's home and needed to leave my room neat and tiddy as a way to say thank you for such a great stay!! We stayed in the Rose Garden Room which was fabulos! All the rooms had an in and out-door entrance. The balcony had little tables and chairs so we could sit outside in the fresh country air and listen to nature, or watch the animals. The grounds are nicely landscaped and well taken care of! Breakfast was a rare treat! Loretta made some extrodinary quich and stuffed french toast which was mouth watering! As a special treat, Loretta had a little wedding cake for us during breakfast. How thoughtful!! Loretta and Paul go out of their way to make each person's stay a memorable one! We most definitely will be back!!

A stay at The Barn Inn makes a visit to Holmes County complete. Comfort, friendliness, helpfulness, attention to every detail will make your stay here one of the highlights of your visit.
5 on May 16, 2009
From the time we walked in the front door, we were treated very well. We received information on local tourist attractions, restaurants, etc. The conversation was so pleasant. The entire place was exceptionally clean. Our stay was restful. We could go on and on. It is a great place to stay, and we hope to go back again.

Great place to stay if you want to enjoy the Amish country. It is not far out of the way but not close enough to all the hustle and bustle to make you feel like you are in the middle of everything. The cleanliness was amazing and the rooms are beautifully decorated. Loretta and Paul are a wealth of information about the Amish and can really help you understand this lifestyle. The breakfast was fantastic! The only thing I would like to see improved would be to upgrade the TV set in the room. It was a little hard to see the TV from the bed. I would like to see maybe a 32" flat screen in the room. Me and my wife stayed in Country Charm and the jacuzzi tub was very relaxing after a long day of walking. I highly recomend this B&B to everyone. You will not be dissapointed.
4.8 on May 08, 2009
We had a outstanding time on our three day stay at the Barn Inn. Loretta arranged our tours and a meal with a Amish family. She was very knowledgeable on local attractions and out of the way craftmen (craftwomen). Completely enjoyed our stay and the wonderful breakfasts to start out our day in Amish Country.
4.8 on May 07, 2009
Having decided to try a new B&B we tried The Barn and were surprised and delighted at the entire experience. Loretta is great and is running the Inn very well. We will definitely return.
4.8 on May 06, 2009
It was my third time to visit. My sister-in-law and family gave us a gift card for our 50th Anniv. She traveled with us this time. Loretta is so gracious & knowledgeable about the area . What a cook!! Just ask and she will do what she can to make your stay even better, if that is possible. We will be returning again. We especially enjoyed the deck this time.

We loved the information after breakfast of unusual places to go. Also the history of the Amish and Menonite faith was very interesting to us. We thoroughly enjoyed the Amish tour and dinner with the Amish family.

Very clean, very friendly
3.8 on May 05, 2009
Loretta and Paul have the perfect personalities to be running a bed and breakfast in an Amish community. They each have relatives who are part of one of the Amish or Mennonite communities, and Loretta's remarks at breakfast are very good to ease the guests into an appreciation of the values and the various different outlooks of some of the subgroups of the Amish and Mennonites. I came away with a better understanding of the motivation for their way of life. Also touring the area in the springtime, it is apparent what a solid contribution to the country's agricultural productivity comes from the efficiently run Amish farms.
5 on May 05, 2009
We celebrated our anniversary here. The Inn is so comfortable...truly capturing the feeling of home with the added pleasure of being pampered. Loretta is so terrific...very warm and full of knowledge of the area and it's people. Our room was above description...absolutely Fabulous!! You would never be disappointed with a stay here...we HIGHLY recommend it!!

Room and B & B was awesome. Everything we could have wanted and more. Innkeepers were available at all times and very helpful. Overall, we loved the place and would recommend to friends and family and go back again. Had a great time visiting the Yoder Amish Farm as suggested by the Innkeeper. Morning breakfast was VERY good - just loved it overall.
5 on May 04, 2009
We stayed for a week at this lovely restored barn B & B. Loretta's breakfasts are too fantastic for words. She and Paul made us feel welcome in their lovely home. Loretta's helpful hints of where to visit gave us experiences we would not have known about on our own or from published pamphlets. This was our third visit and it won't be our last!!
4.4 on May 04, 2009
I gave some gift certificates to my boys and their wifes for Christmas. They asked me to join them and we had a wonderfull time. We asked about a fire outside and Loretta went and started it for us. We couldn't of been happer with the room and the good advise on enjoying the area that we received. I will tell all our friends to go.

Outstanding and quiet, restful place to stay when visiting Holmes county area. Breakfast is fantastic and the information about the area attractions given by Loretta is very helpful and interesting. Will stay here every time we go to the area. The time on the balcony is time well spent.

Loretta was very nice and went out of her way to share background and information on the area and the lifestyles within the community. For the price, although the standard rooms are small, was well worth it!

Loretta and Paul were like old friends from the moment we set foot in the door! Great food and amenities. Be sure to ask Loretta about things to see (but only if you have a little time ;-)

This was our 2nd time staying with Paul and Loretta. They provide an excellent atmosphere to get away and relax. Breakfast every morning is wonderful, and I don't normally even eat breakfast! They are very knowledgable about the area and can provide you with plenty of ideas of places to go to make your stay very interesting. The rooms are wonderful and the price is great. We will definitely return again in the future as the area is wonderful to visit and the Barn Inn is the best around.
5 on April 27, 2009
Owners are extremely courteous and helpful. Provided worthwhile information on the locale. Provided a beautiful room and delicious food. Will reurn again.

This was our first Bed & Breakfast experience, and I credit it to divine providence that we ended up staying at The Barn Inn. We were traveling with another couple to go sightseeing in Amish Country and The Barn Inn was one of the few B & B's that had two rooms available for the weekend that we would be in the area. We are exceptionally glad that we were able to stay at The Barn Inn, otherwise our overnight adventure would not have been as wonderful. We were beyond pleasantly surprised when we checked in. The Barn Inn used to be a working barn that has been elegantly redecorated and provides an atmosphere of peacefulness and serenity. Our room, which is themed "Olde World", was cozy and inviting. We felt right at home the second we entered the room. The Inn keepers, Paul and Loretta, were meticulous in providing numerous amenities that enhanced our overall B & B experience. There is nothing more welcoming than arriving to freshly brewed coffee, freshly baked cookies and lemon bars! One of the highlights of staying at The Barn Inn was getting to know Paul and Loretta as they freely shared their personal knowledge of the Amish way of life and various stories from their life experiences. Their personal attention to our questions and casual conversation made our stay as delightful as it could possibly be. Loretta also shared a vast amount of historical knowledge concerning The Barn Inn and various Amish traditions during the community breakfast time. At the end of her talk, she gave an excellent summary of many of the Amish attractions in the area and provided us with an area map complete with detailed directions to the specific attractions we planned on going to. We highly recommend The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast to anyone traveling to Holmes County, but you must be forewarned...even before you check out, you will already be planning your next trip back! Mark & Donna

Paul and Loretta are always gracious hosts. We loved our stay there. Paul and Loretta are so helpful in showing us points of interest and truly caring for their guests. Every aspect of our trip was outstanding!

It was a wonderful three night get-away for spring break. We had an enjoyable time and thanks to recommendations from Paul and Loretta we had some wonderful, different tourist adventures. My husband is ready to come back, but first I plan to take advantage of a get-away with my college girlfriends in June. I'm already dreaming of some more excellent breakfasts. See you soon!
5 on April 26, 2009
What a perfect place to spend our honeymoon. The room was so romantic and the jacuzzi was outstanding. Food was great and the tour and shopping information given by Loretta each morning after breakfast was so helpful for planning our day. We hope to return for a visit in the winter.
5 on April 26, 2009
This was our 3rd stay at the Barn Inn. We love it! The host Paul and Loretta are very friendly and can tell you all the good places to visit and shop in the area. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is wonderful. The Inn is affordable and has great service. We will return again.

The Barn B&B is one of our highlights of Amish country. Initially this was a gift for helping our daughter with the birth of her firstborn (8 years ago!) and we have been returning ever since, and bringing friends. Loretta & Paul are lovely people, who love people, and it is a delight to call them friends.

Loretta and Paul were good hosts. Excellent attraction suggestions and directions came easily from Loretta. Sunday morning breakfast was hearty and delicious. Our room, The Renaissance, was tidy and well stocked with towels. I could have done without the abundance of Christmas decorations (plastic ivy, fake pine boughs, metallic ribbons, and strings of lights) scattered in the lobby, hallway, and our room. After all it is April, Christmas was four months ago. Upon entering our room for the first time Loretta addressed a shower curtain rod issue. Yet, the shower curtain rod fell three times while my husband was showering on Sunday morning. It was a tension rod past its prime. Upon departing The Barn Inn, I advised Paul of the shower curtain rod issue and he said "thanks, goodbye." Perhaps he was busy seeing to other guests. But, I would have been impressed if he would have seemed to empathize with us a bit more.

Warm, welcoming, relaxing, bucolic atmosphere. Breakfast was delicious - what you might get at a five-star hotel. My room, named "French Country" was beautiful and a welcome respite after touring and shopping all day. Paul and Loretta did everything to make my stay comfortable and memorable!

The setting of this B & B is lovely. Country at it's best and this property is set up to enjoy the outdoors. Lovely covered porch with chairs to sit on and look out over the pasture and the woods. Can't say enough about Paul and Loretta, our hosts. They go out of their way to make your trip enjoyable. The Inn was clean and comfortable and the breakfast delicious. We would stay there again.

This was our second stay at this b&b. Just as great this time around. The breakfast was awesome and the inn keepers were great. Other b&b we have stayed at maybe serve you a roll or pastry for breakfast, here it is truly a b&b.

Stayed 2 nights over Easter. Beuatiful old restored barn in peaceful country location -- a bit tough to find though. Hosts were very friendly and helpful, providing guests with a bit of information on the area and the Amish each day after breakfast, which was delicious. Pleanty of amenities, including tea, movies and popcorn available in the hall any tiime you wanted it. Only one issue -- the floors aren't very soundproof and noise from upper floors (jacuzzi etc) carries to lower rooms. All in all a very nice palce
5 on April 13, 2009
Phenomenal hot breakfast on site! Loretta's tips about the area were extremely helpful. We visited several out of the way spots she highlighted for us and had an intimate look at the Amish culture without feeling intrusive.
4.4 on April 13, 2009
The best part of the stay was that after breakfast our innkeeper told us various places to visit that were local and off the beaten path. We enjoyed the pastries at night and the dvds. What i did not like was that the walls were thin and you could hear conversations going on down in the great room. I would come here again though.
5 on April 12, 2009
It is not often in the places that we stay that we are truly surprised at the level of service and quality that we receive. Whoever heard of having microwave popping corn in a basket if you wanted it, or how a bottle of Tylenol, or a delicious brownie to snack on. How about a rack of over a 100 good quality videos to choose from for your room at no charge ? How about delightfully decorated inn, with historical pictures of the area, and curios ? The innkeeper took 30 minutes in the morning telling the guests about the history of the area, where they could find the best deals, and answereing questions. What an absolutely delightful time we had ! They were above and beyond anything we ever expected !
4.8 on April 12, 2009
The Barn Inn Bed & Breakfast was outstanding! Loretta has a flair for decorating and making the B&B very homey, yet very classy. Coffee and tea were always freshly made,along with goodies in the afternoon and evening. Beautiful area!
