lovely artisan village in log cabins...the concept is wonderful and charming, however the prices are quite unreasonable...although we appreciate the skill and artistry, they seem a little zealous w/pricing...we only bought a couple things, but most certainly would have bought more if the price was right...we overheard 2 or 3 couples discussing this same issue as we walked around campus...something...

On Route 40 but easy to get to from Interstate 68. Several restored cabins moved from other locations now used as shops for various local artisans--wood turner, pottery, paper cutter, quilter, blacksmith and more. All (except blacksmith) willing to talk about their craft. Wood turner had some very nice bowls and pepper mills. The restaurant also had a nice selection... More

I've been her a few times before, but this last time I was fortunate enough to have arrived when the Miller House had a docent and the larger house was open. The docent was full of information and since he was there, we were allowed to go upstairs. In the big house, there was a beautiful root cellar which blew... More

We've enjoyed visiting the Artisan Village since it was first opened. It's fascinating to watch the craftspeople at work. Our house has lots of arts and crafts purchased over the years at the Village. Our granddaughter insists we visit every time we are traveling through Grantsville. She loves the fairy doors installed on some of the trees, which I'd never... More

A created village of rescued and restored - many log historic buildings is a charming setting for a variety of displays and craftsman. Mature trees offer ample shade. Path is flat and easy to walk. Meets the artists and see demos. Most are eager to discuss their work. Great stop for all ages.

We had our grandchildren and they enjoyed seeing the old buildings and crafts that are produced during that time period. Everything is free for those on a budget with gift shops available in each building. Very educational

We strolled through this small, but unique "village" after having lunch at Penn Alps. Even though not all the cabins were open, we stopped & chatted with artisans. It was a very pleasant & informative tour. Very entertaining & educational.

We stopped, with two kids. Artisans were all very nice. Most were open, but not all. Everyone was working on something and didn't mind us watching. Old buildings were very neat, especially the old Yoder house and the root cellar. Worth stopping and stretching your legs a bit.

This amazing place was one we happened upon when taking a random break from driving through the mountains. And wow, we fell in love. This restored village offers a chance to stroll through historic buildings and little cabins and talk with resident artisans about their work. Really enjoyed the ingenious construction of the Yoder House. The 1830s one room school... More

Great place to stop for a hot day of strolling ! The scenery is the best part of this little visit! Be sure to eat at the Penn Alps restaurant right there for a wonderful meal, salad bar and dessert bar !
