Nestled in the heart of Amish Country, this apartment gives you the peace of the country while being conveniently located only 4/10 of a mile from the center of Berlin. The apartment is a full walkout basement with lots of windows, two bedrooms, a bath, and an open floor plan. Our desire is to provide a peaceful place to come home to after an enjoyable day of visiting all the quaint shops, seeing some great shows, sampling delicious bakeries and eating home-cooked meals at local restaurants.
The photos are accurate of what you will see when you get here. We desire to provide you with what you will need for a restful stay. There are no steps to access so it's very convenient. You will have a full kitchen, full refrigerator, stove and some cooking supplies. A large TV with Netflix and a wii (upon request) if you want to relax in the evenings. Or you can sit on the front porch and hear the clip clop of buggies going by. Two bedrooms with queen-sized beds, a futon, an air mattress and large couch.
Our area is visited by people looking for quilts, crafts, family-friendly activities and shows, furniture stores, and seeing the Amish way of life. My husband and I both come from an Amish heritage. Our grandparents were Amish and our parents were Amish until after they were married. We have been pastors for over 20 years and due to health reasons are retired from the pastorate.
From our home you can visit Berlin 1 minute, Walnut Creek 5-7 minutes, Mt. Hope 10 minutes, Charm 10 minutes, Millersburg 10 minutes, Sugarcreek 15 minutes, New Philadelphia 35 minutes, Wooster 35 minutes. There is a Dollar General within walking distance and grocery stores within 1-3 minutes driving (walkable if you want). We are on the same road as Coblentz Country Cabins and Water's Edge Cabin.
We do have a small yorkie-poo that you might hear click across the ceiling if everything is quiet, and you will hear footsteps as we live upstairs. If you are looking for a home away from home then this fits the bill! Come and make memories in your private 1200 sq ft. getaway. Enjoy fun, laughter, music and games.
We look forward to being part of the memories you will make here in Berlin, Ohio.
Easy to get to all the places we wanted to visit in the area. Very clean and nice communication with owner.
Second time staying here, every bit as good as first. The Yoders are wonderful people, very conscientious, and the rental was far better than a hotel plus has personal nuances that make it further appealing. Very very clean, spacious, peaceful, and very comfortable beds. Perfect to relax and soak in the community. Also right off the main drag. Can't recommend it enough.
Great weekend, centrally located, wonderful hosts!!
nice location and very quite
The listing is just as described and then some. The owners went above and beyond to make our weekend great. Can't wait for the chance to go back and stay with them.
This Home A-way from Home was the perfect size for my family. The layout was exactly what we needed, with a big kitchen/dining area and open area living room for family time. The location is perfect! It is ust a short drive to everything we love to visit in the Amish Country. This is our 5th trip to Ohio's Amish country and this is our favorite place to stay by far! James & Carol have thought of everything. From extra linens to DVDs, a play area to laundry facility, it has everything you need. It has all the comforts of home and so much cleaner than a hotel. We could not have been more pleased. We will definitely be back!
Gorgeous place, very comfortable and homey. We will return.
Great location. Clean and cozy. Quiet and easy to find. Close to lots of shopping and restaurants.
Extremely nice,everything we could have desired. Accurate advertising of property. James do kind and helpful at drop of pin.We will not hesitate to use this propeysgsin, Safest ever and so accommodating.
Was great ! Little extras made it even more special. Will definitely stay again.
Everything was as advertised. It was the perfect location. It was very clean and James and Carol were wonderful to work with.
This was just as advertised. Clean, comfortable and great hosts. Fresh bread and snacks on the counter was a nice touch. Looking forward to another visit.
The location is perfect for visiting downtown Berlin. It is well within walking distance. The property was very clean and well-stocked with coffee, snacks and treats. There was a loaf of complimentary homemade bread!! Thank you Carol and James for your wonderful hospitality!
Easy and exactly how described.
Home was very comfortable and well prepared for guests. Easy access and away from traffic noise. Looking forward to return visit.
I would highly recommend this place to stay. We were there for two nights, and found it to be very clean, comfortable and conveniently located for visiting Holmes County. We enjoyed the snacks that were provided by our hosts, and felt very at home in the cozy apartment. My only disappointment was that we were not greeted by the hosts upon arrival, which has never been our VRBO experience before. We were provided with ample directions for parking and the keypad code well in advance of our arrival, but we were looking forward to meeting our hosts, but that didn't happen. I appreciate that they were respecting our privacy, and perhaps our arrival was at an inconvenient time, but not having met them made a chance encounter feel extremely awkward. They were very available via texts to answer questions and offer help, so communication was fine. Not having met them formally would be the only negative about this apartment experience. It was wonderful, and as I said, I highly recommend this as a place to stay in Holmes County.
The property is exactly as described and then some added perks.
Thoughtful and gracious hosts. Convenient to everything but still very quiet. Lots of personal touches very much appreciated. Clean, comfortable and roomy. Highly recommend...unless you are booking the same time we want. LOL
Clean, comfortable, stylish. Lots of room. Enjoyed our stay very much. Hope to return again.
We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the complimentary bread, snacks, and water!
Perfect location, spacious living area, met our needs exactly! We’ll be back!
Our stay was wonderful. James and Carol were very nice hosts. We enjoyed learning about their Amish back ground and visiting Carol’s candle making Shop. If we are back to this area we will differently stay again! Thanks for the wonder accommodations!
The Yoders went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable and to make us feel welcome. We cannot wait to go back. The home, the view, and the hosts could not have been better. It's the kind of stay you don't get in a hotel.
Cozy apartment right in the heart of Berlin. It was clean, comfortable and convenient to everything. Communication with the owners was excellent!!! Great home away from home!!!
The rental was as seen in their listing. Couldn't have been any better. The Hosts were like family. The area was great and we can't wait to go back.
We could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay than Yoders. Perfect location, right off the Main Street, clean, spacious and welcoming. There was a fresh loaf of bakery bread, snacks and a bowl of chocolates. The apartment was very comfortable, the beds were comfortable and the owners were friendly and helpful. We would absolutely stay here again.
James and Carol’s place was the perfect place for our weekend in Amish Country. It’s very close to town but yet so quiet. It was very clean and so homey with charming decorations. There was plenty of room for the five of us. It’s obvious they take pride in their rental and have it well stocked for visitors. There were even rain ponchos for us to use! This is definitely a place we will return!
The rental was great. I would highly recommend it! The location was very convenient. The apartment was easily accessible and very very comfortable. Neat as a pin and very clean.
Thank you for having us. We did dishes so you wouldn’t have too, we will be back when it gets warmer.
This is now my favorite place to stay. Thank you so much. I will be staying with you in the future. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.
Property was exactly as stated convenient comfortable and ideal for myself husband and friends
This apartment was a perfect place to stay in Amish country. It was warm and inviting with perfect touches of hospitality. All the conveniences of home are included in this perfect place to get away!
We had a wonderful time and hope to return in the future. Owners were very friendly and welcoming.
It’s in the heart of Amish Country. You could walk to Main Street if you wanted. Basement apartment is perfect for a getaway. Completely furnished.
THE APARTMENT WAS VERY SUITABLE FOR THE 3 OF US. WE EACH HAD OUR OWN SPACE, BUT WE GATHERED AT THE TABLE. THE LOCATION IS PERFECT FOR GETTING AROUND AMISH COUNTRY.
We loved our stay in Berlin! Thoroughly enjoyed the Amish country. We also loved our accomodations in the home if James & Carol Yoder. Very spacious, clean, and great location. Also enjoyed meeting the Yoder's--very nice people! Hope to return next year!
Nice and clean place with very detailed instructions for everything!👍
The property is easily accessed. Within walking distance of downtown Berlin, but with a feel of being away from town. Move in ready and move out easy! Spacious, open floor plan with all the amenities of home. You can't go wrong staying here.
I give it the three cee's - clean, comfortable and cozy. Had A wonderful time and can't think of anything negative to say about our stay. Would absolutely recommend it. The Yoder's are very gracious to open their home to travelers.
From start to finish this was a wonderful experience. The owners go above and beyond. I work in customer service so that aspect is personally very important to me. I have to say it’s rare today to find people who care enough to go the extra mile but these people do! Thank you for letting us share your place it was awesome! Be sure to stop by der bake oven. We ate there everyday!!! It was absolutely delicious. Hope to stay again!
It felt like home away from home...excellent hosts and very hospitable. We will definitely return 😊
My girlfriends and I stayed here for a girls weekend away in Amish Country. The apartment was very lovely and homey. I met James briefly did not have the pleasure of meeting Carol as we were gone alot exploring. Wonderful hosts made themselves readily available if you needed something but also gave you your privacy. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Amish Country for a couple of days. You will love it! I will definitely return for my future visits. Thank you James and Carol for sharing your wonderful home.
Nice 2 bedroom base! Only issue the air conditioner wasn’t great! The owners was outstanding, was in contact with us on the way there!
When i say our family thouroughly enjoyed our weekend stay! The Yoder’s and their beautiful home are truly a blessing for anyone who pass through! Mrs. Yoder baked us delicious chocolate cookies that were gone that night lol! There are people you meet in this world who just have the ability to make you feel so welcomed and the Yoder’s are definitely those people! Thank you again and god bless!
The Yoder’s are an extremely kind and gracious couple to rent from. The cozy apartment was very clean and nicely stocked. So many little touches, it’s hard to name them all. I would however like to suggest they retro fit the shower with safety bars, nothing to hold onto getting in and out of the tub. Also, a luggage rack in the green bedroom would have been nice, nowhere to put a suitcase. We really liked the YouTube tv, I may look into that in my area. Thanks again, we had a lovely stay.
Really cute apartment. Very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.
Although our stay was shortened due to an illness, everything was just wonderful. I highly recommend this as the place to stay in Berlin. We hope to return as soon as possible.
Plenty of room for the three of us. Close to everything. Walking distance to town (Berlin). We will return next year!
My husband and I and another couple had a wonderful surprise when we rented this property. We were warmly greeted by James when we arrived. This is a very spacious and very clean property. We felt at home right away. We were just minutes away from Berlin and Millersburg. We would definitely rent this property again and would highly recommend this property. After we left, Carol discovered that my husband forgot his phone charger in the bedroom. James contacted us right away and arranged to mail it back to us in Toledo. Thank you James and Carol for such a lovely visit.
We enjoyed the basement apartment, fully furnished, close to town as well as to farmland and rural attractions. Very helpful owners were available if needed but not intrusive. Had a really nice time there.
My sister and I stayed here for 4 nights (May 14-18) and wish we could have stayed longer. This home was the perfect location to walk into town and to visit everything in the area. It was very clean and neat and the kitchen was wonderful as well (even though we did very little cooking.) The beds were comfortable and the whole place was just so cozy. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio during the evening and watching the birds and smelling the spring flowers. Carol even took some time out of her busy day to give us a little tour of their candle-making business that they operate in their barn. We loved this place so much we are already planning our visit for next year. Thanks again James and Carol for the amazing time!
I brought My Mother and three sisters up for the weekend and this was our first time staying at The Yoder's. We were very pleased with our stay the place was very clean and well stocked with everything we could ever need. It is conveniently located to everything in Berlin and was a nice middle ground to go to Millersburg or Sugarcreek. We will definitely be staying here the next time we come to town.
Great property! Nice and clean and convenient to all we wanted to do in Amish country. Had everything we needed to make our stay wonderful. Very roomy for the 4 of us. Thanks so much.
we were able to relax after spending the day site seeing and shopping, would highly recommend and will stay again. thank you
WE found the perfect place for mom and daughters, from NY and Ohio to meet for a wonderful weekend together. My siblings leave the accommodations to me, because I can usually find a wonderful place. I did not fail this time. James and Carol were responsive, informative and welcoming from the initial contact. The lower level of their home was perfect with some of the most comfortable bedding we have slept in. I said it was better than my own home. The seating allowed us to spread out and enjoy a few movies . The kitchen had all we needed to prepare a meal and have some appetizers. They even supplied us with some snacks and water bottles. This location was right off the main street of Berlin, so after shopping , it was easy to get to. It was a peaceful place to relax and catch up with family. Thanks so much
I brought my teen daughter and her friend to Amish Country for a couple of days over spring break. I wanted two bedrooms vs. a hotel so I could have my privacy from two teens. This apartment worked out wonderful. It was nice and clean and had everything we needed. The location was great and close to everything. Unfortunately, the time of year we came a lot of things were not open yet and we also had rain the whole visit. We stayed in the apartment more than we planned but it was nice and comfortable so that really helped our rainy visit be more comfortable.
Owner was very nice and easy to contact. So glad we found this place to stay when we come from Florida to visit family. We will be back again.
We enjoyed our stay in Amish Country. This rental (a lower apartment) was spacious, clean and well supplied. The furniture was very comfortable. The owners were also very accommodating in answering questions and even offered up their Roku to allow watching a sports channel that wasn't included in the satellite package in the apartment. We would rent this unit again in the future.
The owners were extremely nice and accomodating. The place was unbelievably clean, is very spacious, perfect for feeling free and relaxed. It is quite simply a home away from home. Plenty of little perks and personal touches that will make it exceed ones expectations. Close to any place you're looking to visit in the area. Beds are super comfortable and the property in a perfect setting just off main drag but private entrance and natural appeal with pine trees around the house. My family didn't want to leave. It would be a crime to compare this to any hotel. Also plenty to keep kids busy, who doesn't like that? Brian S (Benwood, WV)
The stay is very close to Berlin. I was able to walk to shops, coffee houses and restaurants. The living area was big and could easily fit a large family.
Wonderful time!!....lots of room for us all to spread out. Kids loved the movies and Wii, the yard and swingset. So close to everything! Cute and cozy little place. Simply decorated, but tasteful... incredibly kind owners!!! Enjoyed seeing their candle barn...and just LOVED everything about this rental!!!
Beautiful property and felt right at home! All amenities were nice and the location was perfect!
We had a wonderful stay, very clean and conveniently located to the local shops
It was great! Def more than we expected! And they were so friendly to make sure we got settled in. Will be booking more than 1 night this year for my bday wkend! This space seemed so small until u walked thru the door....then it all opened up! Just nice little touches u wouldnt get at the local hotels or Inns. Please book with Carol and John..u wont be sorry. But dont take my wkend! Lol
This place is awesome. It was so cozy, super clean, and quiet with all the perks of being at home. There's a beautiful full-size kitchen, dining area, and living room to enjoy after your day of shopping and sightseeing. The bedrooms were beautiful and the beds were so comfortable. The Yoder's were wonderful people who owned this rental. They made us feel right at home. Our stay was way too short. We plan on going back in the spring for a week.
Little sis and I just returned from an awesome time in amish country. this lovely home offers so much, a great view, a small walk into town. The décor is beautiful, and the longated living room and kitchen area are phenomenal, one huge room, to which we loved. I recommend this place, you will not be disappointed, you will not want to leave, thanks James & Carol
James and Carol are fantastic hosts who make you feel right at home. You can go and do a lot of shopping and looking or stick close to relax and recuperate. We loved the spaciousness of the apartment. It is well appointed,and clean. The beds are very comfortable and cozy. Top on our list was the front porch where we spent a lot of time, reading, watching horsedrawn buggies go by and munching. We will be returning at some point.
The house was close to so many shops and attractions. It was an awesome place to relax and regroup. The Yoder' s were very accommodating.
Nice roomy apartment with everything you need for your stay. Quiet peaceful location near Berlin. Wonderful comfortable beds. Great selection of movies plus Netflix. James and Carol were great hosts. Will definitely be back.
We loved the place beautifully decorated and so comfortable ! Everything was absolutely wonderful. I could not have picked a better place to stay. Thank you for everything, from helping to find things to do with the kids to everything in general. The family Reunion we had in Big Prairie was not too far had lots of fun. We will be back to visit. Thank you from Arkansas
From the moment we arrived and received a personal greeting, we felt welcome at the Yoder's home. The apartment is spacious and well-equipped. Our hosts provided thoughtful touches -- videos, snacks, toiletries, for example -- that made this truly seem like home away from home. Outside, there is even a hammock and play area that our young children thoroughly enjoyed. The apartment is comfortably furnished and has been decorated with numerous personal touches. Our daughter immediately fell in love with the princess bed in one of the bedrooms. The kitchen and dining area are very large, perfect if you intend to cook some of your own meals. This home is conveniently located in the heart of Ohio's Amish attractions and is less than an hour's drive to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We enjoyed easy access to both shopping and dining, with a number of offerings less than a couple of miles away. If you like to sew or quilt, you will be in heaven visiting Zinck's, which is unlike any fabric store I have ever seen! Also within a reasonable drive are antique shops, delicious bakeries (try Miller's), cheese factories, and a wonderful Christmas shop (check out the candles made by the owners of this property -- they smell amazing!). I can't say enough positive things about this area and these accommodations. Our kids are already asking when we can return!
James and Carol were so nice and accommodating. They had great recommendations specific for us. It was great having a place that had a kitchen and my sister and I each had our own bedroom. We had a great time. Thanks James and Carol!
This a great place to stay for couples or families. The decor and furnishings are of the highest quality and make for a really comfortable place to relax after a busy day The owners were friendly and helpful. It's very close to all the local attractions. One small complaint is that there isn't much to watch on the satellite TV but there were plenty of movies and Netflix. My family and I will definitely visit this rental again and would happily recommend it!
I rented this place for my mom and her friends. They stayed two night with the Yoders and they said they felt so welcomed. This house is right in the midst of the little Amish town and convenient too many other little Amish towns. They said the house was very accommodating for the six of them. We would definitely recommend staying here.
We enjoyed the weekend at James and Carol's place. It is conveniently located in Berlin and a short walk to anywhere in town. James and Carol were very accommodating and quick to respond to all messages. The apartment is spacious with plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was well-provisioned, and the whole place was spotless! We were delighted to get a quick visit from Carol who brought us a plate of delicious brownies...what a surprise!
Let me tell you we had a wonderful experience, from the first email to the good bye. These people know how to do it right. Walk in the door to a very comfortable room with the a.c. on. Everything was very clean. A small cart of snacks welcomed you to the kitchen. The cold bottles water in the refrigerator was so thoughtful of the hosts. The Coffee and 2 coffee makers await you for your first cup of joe. The beds were so comfortable and the bathroom clean with a nice selection of towels and wash clothes (not just 3 like a motel). The location is perfect, you could easily walk to downtown. The instructions were very detailed for anything in the house like, tv game system coffee pot and other things. Overall loved this place and highly recommend this place and the hosts. Thanks Luke
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at James and Carol's basement apartment. They've done such a nice job at making it comfortable and homey. We appreciated the fact that there were plenty of sleeping options for our family of five. Their place is so close and convenient to everything in the Berlin, Millersburg, Walnut Creek area. Unfortunately we had to leave our rental early due to health reasons but James was very kind and understanding about our change of plans. We would definitely recommend their place to anyone visiting the area if you're looking for quiet, comfort, and convenience. We hope to be back sometime in the near future and look forward to it.
