Amish Acres barn An art competition, live entertainment and an Indiana Amish Country setting combine to form the annual Amish Acres Arts & Crafts Festival.

This event is ideal for art lovers wanting to combine their appreciation for arts and crafts with exploration of the Indiana Amish Country.  The outdoor festival and market takes place at the Amish Acres farm’s pond.

Not content to rest on the artistic laurels of last year’s golden anniversary, the theme of the 2013 Amish Acres Arts & Crafts Festival is “Proud as a Peacock’s Plumage: The Colorful World of Art.” The festival draws its inspiration for the theme from the “It’s A-Peelin’ Apple Art,” an outdoor exhibit created by local artists and featuring a four foot tall apple sculpture of a peacock in full plumage.  This Amish Acres historic Kuhn’s Apple Cider Mill, which is ranked in the Top 10 Cider Mills in America.

Attendance of this event is expected to be sky high once again, so it is recommended you reserve your lodging right away.  Scottish Bed & Breakfast is just down the road a few miles from the festival and currently has rooms available through the festival weekend.

Notre Dame Graduation Weekend – Guestrooms Still Available

May 4th, 2013 by Scottish B&B

Notre Dame graduation means another school year over and the students are excited to go home and work their summer away. When I worked at Notre Dame for sixteen years, I remember how sad I was to see the students leave. I always got close to several of them, because they worked in the same department as I did.  The atmosphere around campus was different in the summer. I could not wait until they came back in the Fall.  Notre Dame has changed a lot since I worked there, but the spirit of excitement to learn brought an energy that just can’t be defined or replaced. The students kept me young. I will never forget my years working at Notre Dame.

We still have guest rooms available at the Scottish Bed and Breakfast for Notre Dame Graduation weekend May 17 – 18, 2013. We are only 25 minutes from campus and offer a gourmet breakfast each morning, safe parking, king/queen select comfort number beds, private baths, indoor heated pool, garden patio.
