Easy to get to in Nappannee, IN this is a unique tourist attraction. An historic feel, but a glimpse into the life and culture of the Amish people, who are very common in the surrounding area. Beautiful grounds and ancient buildings, a restaurant with exceptional...More

We came here for the Theater and decided to enjoy a real "Homespun Meal". If you are wanting to sample some Amish food right off the farm, you will find it here. Leave you "Diet plan" at the door and loosen your belt cause they...More

Bought a package which included the musical Fiddler on the Roof at the round barn theatre, a Thrashers supper, and tours of the grounds. Musical was excellent. Thought the seating was uncomfortable for such a long production. The grounds are very interesting, containing an Amish...More

We loved the idea of learning about Amish customs. The people at Amish Acres are very friendly and knowledgeable. The actual attractions seem warn. We loved the theatre. The Thresher's meal at the restaurant was ho-hum...and hot foods were at best tepid.More

Response from CindyPalatine_IL | Reviewed this property |
I think it's about 175 miles from Palatine, so probably arouond 170 from Arlington Heights. Took us just about 3 1/2 hours, but we hit some of the morning traffic around Chicago. (We left our house at 6 am).
