We won't book any actual reservations from this form, but this will give us an idea of what interests you and your group and we can work up an offering for your consideration. Nothing at this point is binding in any way on you. If things are to your liking we'll get down to reservations later.

But, if you are making plans for a larger group or an extended trip that will include this area, we should develop the itinerary together. If this is your first time planning for a group tour, this information will get us started and we can work up a good itinerary for you to consider. In either case, to begin, we need to gather more detailed information to help you plan the details of your tour.

Advance planning will aid in arranging the best possible experience. We work with reservations up to a year in advance, and we recommend at least two weeks advance notice to arrange the best possible experience. We can work with less time but some options may not be available.


I am only seeking general information on the Illinois Amish Area. I do not have a specific date in mind and do not have any specific information needs at this time but would like general information for future planning purposes.

OR if you are seeking more detailed information for a more specific travel plan tell us more below...

   Bed & Breakfast - we have a number of nice selections in and about the area to work with depending on timing, your activities and general area interests. Be advised that many of the B&B's book early so advance planning is helpful.
   Group lodging for conferences or larger family groups.

    I am thinking of approximately
        1.     2.      3.      4.     More than 4 
                      nights accommodations in the area.
