Amish country is heading into its most colorful and vibrant time of the year. The beautiful foliage attracts thousands of travelers to the area every year and fall marks the busiest season in Amish country as the shops prepare their stores for holiday sales. Use this edition of Amish Heartland to plan your fall travels to Amish country.

Berlin Hotel and Suites is on its way to becoming a high class resort. With over 60 rooms and more to come in the future, Berlin Hotel and Suites offers top-notch amenities. 17,000 square feet of fitness facilities, indoor pool area and the only hotel in Ohio to have its own indoor theater are just a few of its finest accommodations. Check out the story on page 6 to see what is in store for the future of Berlin Hotel.

Berlin Furniture is not your typical furniture store. You won't find a large show room of the perfect living room set-up or fine dining establishment. Instead you will find a small assortment of beautifully hand crafted end tables, jewelry boxes and clocks. You will also find that Reuben Miller has taken on a new hobby of crafting specialty novelty pieces such as model airplanes and small stools.

The Wanda E. Brunstetter novel, "The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club" comes to life at the Carlisle Inn, Sugarcreek. In September, the Carlisle Inn kicked off the second half of their season with a new Amish musical about an unlikely group of people that come together for a quilting class taught by an Amish widow. There wasn't a dry eye in the audience as laughter filled the theater and a touch of drama kept viewers on the edge of their seat until the climatic ending.

So there you have it! A place to stay, a place to shop and a little entertainment for you to schedule into your fall trip to Amish country. Check out our calendar of events for even more things to do during your visit and stop in to some of our advertised shops for holiday deals.
