ADDRESS: 2113 MAIN ST./US ROUTE 62, Winesburg, OH 44690 (for direction on how to find this address, please scroll down to "Location")

Within minutes from Berlin, Sugar Creek, Millersburg, and Charm, Ohio, The Chestnut Barn is located in the heart of Amish country in the quaint and historic farming town of Winesburg, Ohio. Approximately 7 miles from the bustling tourist area (Berlin), the Chestnut Barn provides a true picture of Amish life in Holmes County. Surrounded by farms and rolling hills, long walks are a wonderful experience. Although our little town does not even boast a traffic light, you will be just steps away from the Winesburg Park which has a large playground and picnic pavilion. A few steps in the other direction is our historic general store. Not only will you find a deli serving Amish meats and cheeses, our general store also has a carry out which serves a varied menu that includes the area's most popular pizza, roasted chicken, and a full service ice cream shop. Amish restaurants and shops are just a short drive in any direction.

Please be advised that even though it is quite a spacious house, it is not suitable for small children or the elderly. It is not handicap accessible. On the main (ground) floor the downstairs bedroom is one step down from the rest of the floor (not quite evident in pictures) and the shower room is also one step bellow the main level. For people using a walker or a wheelchair, we regret to inform you that unfortunately this is not an ideal property to rent.

Located In the back yard of a c.1830 (chestnut) log house, this recently transformed barn has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a giant kitchen and a great room which can be used for gatherings, seminars, or group meetings and fun get togethers.

There are numerous sites to see and Amish country life to be experienced here in Holmes county all in the vicinity of this old barn with modern comforts and furnishings.

Great place to stay, very clean and well appointed! Only problem was an electrical out in first floor bath didn’t work and television was temperamental. All in all I would recommend this ‘Barn’. Awesome getaway, close to everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us and leaving us such wonderful words of your experience with us. We are so sorry for the tripped fuse in the fusebox for the downstairs powder room. We will try to have it fixed as soon as possible. We are not sure about the temperamental wifi Smart TV, we have never heard of or experienced this problem before. And again, we will try to find out what the problem might be and see if it is fixable. We look forward to hosting you again, either next year or even before that, if your schedule allows.

The outside was not too impressive but the inside was very nice and plenty of room for 7 of us.

A few issues that come with an older building but it provided exactly what we were looking for. A place for the entire family to be able to relax, have some nice meals and spend time together.

Surprisingly wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and comfortable, close to everything Amish. Alex was friendly and very nice, we never had a chance to meet Jean but maybe next time. The house was large and clean and the best pizza we ever ate was right on the corner. Parking was tight with two SUV's but it worked!

This is a great place to stay! Alex was friendly and super helpful. The house was clean and well-maintained. The location is central to all the area attractions. It was more cost effective to stay here than in a hotel, and we benefitted from the amenities of home!

Spacious, Comfortable Home

  • 4 of 5

My parents, 14 year old son and I stayed here for a few days while we were discovering Amish country. The house had everything we needed. Plenty of space for everyone. My son and I were in the upstairs bedrooms and my parents used the downstairs bedroom. There was a large kitchen with all modern appliances and a coffee maker and microwave. There was dish soap and dishwashing detergent provided in the kitchen. Paper towels are also provided. We didn't do much cooking because we ate too much at the Amish buffets in the surrounding areas. The mattresses were comfortable. There were plenty of towels in the bathrooms. Everything was provided, including the shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The house was very comfortable and Alex, the owner, is right next door if needed. You just need to bring your clothes and whatever food you want to cook and you will feel right at home.
