Sugar Creek and Walnut Creek Ohio
We are working hard on visiting various places here and there that look interesting. There are still a ton of places on our list that we would like to see as soon as possible.
BUT there are other places that we travel to, and we realize, we need to visit as often as possible.
The Sugarcreek/Walnut Creek Ohio area fits into that category.
I mentioned this area a LOT here and here. Since I wrote about it before, I will try not to be too repetitive...... but we just love this area.
We again stayed at the Carlisle Inn in Walnut Creek. We had a nice suite on the 3rd floor with a great view of the rural farming area. There was a storm one of the nights we were there, and it was so relaxing watching over the green hills from our balcony as lightning flashed in the distance.
A short walk from the Carlisle Inn is the Der Dutchman. If you like good food, and A LOT of it, this is the place. We went one evening and had a rib special that was perfect. The meat fell off the bones with no effort. Der Dutchman always has a line at popular times, but its worth the wait.
Also a short walk from the Carlisle Inn are some great gift shops, and a nice antique mall (I have had some good finds there!).
We stopped by Sugarcreek to see the World's Largest Cuckoo Clock again. That's always fun.
Sadly, our old Amish pal Leroy was not driving his cart around, doing his tour! We were a bit heart broken to see the cart with a "for sale" sign on it! I do hope that Leroy and his family are doing OK. I would really appreciate an update from anyone who might know whats going on.... Leroy would pick up tourists in his horse drawn cart and give them a very nice tour of the Sugarcreek area. There was no official fee charged, but he did have a tip jar. This was a very unique experience for travelers to this part of Ohio.
AND, we got to visit one of my all time favorite café/coffee shops- Wallhouse Coffee. It is kind of hard to put into words how much I love this place. I talked about it before, but the place is simply perfect. We ended up stopping by here on each day while in town, and I am already missing their smooth coffee, great sandwiches, and ice cream. This is easily the most delicious restaurant around that is still a secret.
We are already talking about a trip to this area again soon.....
