Charming B & B

4.6 on May 28, 2015

The B&B reminded me of my grandmother's bedroom. The proprietor could not have been nicer. Clearview Farm is located on a picturesque farm. It was very clean, attractive, breakfast was excellent - more than I usually eat for breakfast. I would recommend highly.

Simply lovely & relaxing

We loved our night in this beautiful home! The grounds were so lovely, too. The hosts were very helpful with eating suggestions for the evening meal. The rooms were immaculate and the breakfast table setting was beautiful and the breakfast delicious. We have stayed in quite a few B and B's and would put Clearview Farms at the top of our list. Wish we could return next week!

Great stay!!

Amish B&B Retreat

Clearview Farm is a wonderful B&B run by a lovely couple. My wife and I enjoyed our weekend getaway by browsing the nearby towns and attractions. We recommend this B&B highly.

Clearview Farm - relax!

My husband and I stayed at the Clearview Farm while visiting the area for antiquing. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The innkeepers were very gracious and we would love to go back! I highly recommend this inn to anyone staying in the area.

What a terrific stay!

This is an outstanding b&b. The photo does not do justice to how attractive this nearly 200 year old stone home is and the interior is just as good. It's enough out in the country that, while you can see traffic, it is not near enough to intrude. The breakfast was very satisfying (and great coffee!). The Washington room was beautiful with exposed stone walls and a private bath. This was a superior experience - my wife and I highly recommend it.

One outstanding weekend.

The trip to Clearview Farm Bed and Breakfast was wonderful. Arriving there we were greeted by Cheryl Wissler. Made to feel at home the moment we entered their door. The decor was simply stunning, it made you feel as you entered another time. Our room and private bath was beautiful and very comfortable. The pond in front of the home was a major draw for us as we both enjoy fishing. Both of us caught fish! Service was wonderful. Cheryl and her son were of great help to both of us. Worth every penny, we can't wait to go back in the fall. Dot & Larry

Highly recommended

I stayed here for a night a couple of weeks ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place is beautiful. The rooms are gorgeous, but my favorite part was sitting out on a large lawn in the evening, looking through the trees to a lake, with the cornfields in the distance, while the fireflies flashed around me. I recommend this B&B wholeheartedly.
