 Sugarcreek, Ohio

On Wednesday afternoon we left Glenville and headed to Sugarcreek, Ohio, to visit the Amish craftsmen of that area.  Yes, my good wife wanted an oak table with pole lamp for her side of the couch.  (I still have to use a candle on my side!)  

We checked in at the Dutch Host Inn around 7 P.M.  The motel is the first place we stayed when we first visited this area over 35 years ago.  It has many memories.  We often took Mom and Dad Musgrave and Mom and Dad Meads to this area and used this motel as our base for exploring this region.  During the next several days I shall relate to you our adventures in this area.

Food is an important aspect of Holmes County and one of our favorite eateries has to be the Der Dutchman!

On Thursday morning, we were off to find Schlabach Furniture.  This is located out in the country not far from Kidron.  Well, our map was not a very detailed critter.  Do you know how many little country roads there are in Holmes County?  What should have taken us less than an hour from our motel, turned into an over two hour experience.

Finally we arrived at our destination and we were not disappointed.
