Experience the warmth of Dutchman Hospitality this Winter
Take in the theater, visit quaint gift shops, savor Amish-kitchen cooking and enjoy a warm and cozy stay at the inns.
Daylight is in short supply. It is dark as you walk out the door in the morning and dark when returning home. It’s time to create a plan for navigating the cold, dark months of winter. If skiing and sledding are not your idea of fun, read on.
Feel the need to escape your own four walls but not travel too far? Ohio’s Amish Country has a long history in the memory-making department and Dutchman Hospitality offers everything you need for a warm winter experience. Go to the App Store and download the free Dutchman Hospitality app. There you will find information about our restaurants, shops, inns and theater. Using the app, you can purchase theater tickets, book a room, and order carryout meals on nights when cooking just isn’t your thing.
For inspirational entertainment, the Ohio Star Theater in Sugarcreek has "The Christmas Tree Ship" musical on stage through December 31. Inspired by a true story, the musical tells the story of the Schuenemann family, known for bringing Christmas trees to Chicago in the early 1900’s, despite the cold, wintry weather and the dangers of crossing Lake Michigan. They loaded their ship with Christmas trees from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and set sail across the lake. This is a story you won’t soon forget.
Coming to the Ohio Star Theater stage Dec. 17 and 18, is "The Prophecy Show: A Trans-Siberian Orchestra Tribute" and the 2022 concert series begins Feb. 11 and 12, 2022 with live performances by Fernando Ortega. Information about additional 2022 shows is available on the app or online.
If an overnight visit in a warm, cozy Inn is just what the doctor ordered, Carlisle Inn Sugarcreek is located just steps away from the Ohio Star Theater, Dutch Valley Restaurant and Bakery, Dutch Valley Gifts and Dutch Valley Market. Once you arrive on the campus, there is no need to drive anywhere else.
With a pool and a fitness room, there are no excuses for eating too much and exercising too little. The beautiful all-season pool and hot tub enclosed behind glass walls means you can relax in the pool or hot tub as you watch the snow pile up outside. Whether you are cozied up by the fireplace or sitting in the hot tub, it’s warm as wool at Carlisle Inn Sugarcreek. You can also check out Carlisle Inn Walnut Creek, Ohio and Carlisle Inn Sarasota for warm winter nights.
It’s been a long time since things felt normal. Now is the time to create an experience and celebrate living!
