Guggisberg Riding Stables offers Guided Trail Rides
Travelers coming to Amish Country generally arrive with just 2 things in mind: Shopping... and some peace and quiet in the country.
Just 4 miles from downtown Berlin, Guggisberg Swiss Inn in Charm can undeniably be characterized as the best of Both Worlds.
Such an experience it is to spend the day in downtown Berlin, Charm or Walnut Creek taking in the sights and sounds of passing buggies all while enjoying all the unique stores and homemade treats. All that shopping combined with the delicious Amish cooking is enough to make even the most energetic traveler bushed and ready to relax!
Guests of Guggisberg Swiss Inn find that they really do get quite an experience once they retire for the night: Staying away from the local traffic and noise, visitors overlooking the lush farmland of the Doughty Valley delight in the fact that this beautiful place seems to be a "world away", yet so close to the activities Holmes County has to offer.
Guests also have the distinct pleasure of interacting with the Inn's resident horses, a treat you really can't find anywhere else. The herd of about 20 seems to be part of the scenery as they gracefully roam the grounds freely without a care, enticing visitors to do the same. We also can't forget about Clyde & Friday, the two donkeys who complete the herd.
Twenty-four beautifully decorated rooms qualify this as a quaint country Inn, with all the comforts of home. All rates include breakfast and an evening snack of coffee, cookies, cheese and crackers.
