Not your typical Amish Country accommodation!
Walnut Creek, Ohio is known for rolling hills, idyllic farmland, craft shops, and family-style foods. It’s a hospitable place, one oozing with country-styled B & Bs and hotels. That’s absolutely awesome- if that is your style. But if you’re looking for something a little more edgy, shiny, and modern- I recommend taking a closer look at The Wallhouse Hotel.
We stayed as guests of The Wallhouse in a premium corner suite. The two-room suite was extra large. I don’t know about you, but this mama can get a little crabby when we’re all packed in like sardines, don’t worry, you will have plenty of space here.
The fridge is also a helpful size for storing leftovers (oh, those hearty Amish meals) and there was a microwave as well.
The sofa was a pull-out bed. Our kids are used to sleeping on these when we stay in smaller suites so they volunteered to sleep in the living room. This was probably so they could get their own TV. Nonetheless, there are two TVs in the suite, which means the kiddos can be watching Disney Jr, while you and the hubs relax with a little Chip & Joanna Gaines.
The bedroom was large enough to sleep 4. I loved the little office nook. The window there offered a great view of the valley:
My only complaint about the room was the bathroom. Now, don’t get me wrong, the bathroom is roomy and high-end. I love the title work throughout and the huge, walk-in shower. Here’s the deal, though- the bathroom ONLY has a shower. It isn’t a deal breaker for us because our youngest is old enough to stand in the shower, but if I was traveling with a baby or toddler, I’d want to know ahead of time. So, now you know!
The Wallhouse Hotel builds “fresh” into their hotel by using solid surfaces that can be wiped clean. You can see that the above bathroom is immaculate, but even common seating areas and the lobby screamed “clean.” No moldy looking fake flowers in these spaces! As a mom, knowing that everything can be easily disinfected (did you see the dura-leather sofa in the suite?) is a HUGE perk.
My kids were also totally smitten by the pool. If you follow me on Facebook, I posted that when my kids were headed for the pool, an employee saw them and offered up a giant basket of pool noodles and floaties. Be still my mama heart! They would have stayed all day if we had let them!
I love food almost as much as I love my family #jokingnotjoking. Breakfast is included at the hotel and it’s not just some cereal and a donut, it’s a full, hearty meal. I always look for hotels that offer a full breakfast because it saves us money in the long run. If all of our bellies are full we avoid extra snacking and an early lunch, which also helps with the extra calories after those maple-glazed cinnamon rolls! Haha!
I think The Wallhouse Hotel would be a great stop for your family on your next Amish Country adventure. If you live nearby, it would also make the perfect staycation. Give me my own TV and some cinnamon rolls and I am SOLD!
Have you been to Amish Country before? Have you ever done a staycation? Maybe you’re mad for cinnamon maple rolls like me?
