Carriage Corner Bed and Breakfast is a five-minute walk from the "Amish Capital" Village of Intercourse in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and is a perfect introduction to the original concept of Bed and Breakfast: affordable lodging, genuine hospitality, delicious food and immaculate housekeeping.

A bright, airy and inviting home built as a bed and breakfast in 1980, it has been owned by Gordon and Gwen Schuit since 1992. There is a warm friendly atmosphere. Guests refer to the bed and breakfast as being "comfortable" and appreciate the highlights of the tasteful country theme and Amish quilt hangings in each guest room.

The Inn has five air-conditioned guest accommodations, each with a private bath and high speed Wireless Internet access. With tasteful hand-crafted touches of folk-art, Carriage Corner offers a relaxing country atmosphere. Each room has cable TV.

Breakfasts vary daily, but might include juice, fresh fruit, or pecan baked apples; sausage, bacon, or scrapple fresh from the Stoltzfus meat market; omelets, French toast, baked oatmeal, oatmeal pancakes, or egg and sausage souffle; accompanied by raisin scones, Irish soda bread, buttermilk rolls, homemade bread toast or bran muffins with local jams. "Breakfast is a time of wonderful food and conversation" says one of the guests. International guests frequent the B&B, and are taking more to the backroads of the U.S.A. these days, so one may find themselves conversing with a German, Italian, English, or French visitor. Neighbor folks from the Provinces north also make their regular route this way.

Intercourse is a bustling Village from yesteryear with Amish buggies converging. The phone booth at Zimmerman's food store is favorite photo spot, as the movie Witness had one of its scenes shot here. Locally crafted furniture, crafts, pottery, tin, decoy shops, and art galleries as well as fine and family-farm restaurants fill the town. Kitchen Kettle Village lures all visitors to its unique shops. On a drive through the countryside, one can experience plain people who work tirelessly with horse and plow, or needle and thread. One guest described it as being "right in the middle of Amish country with carriages rolling by, Amish boys on scooters, and girls in bonnets playing games."

Just west of the Village is The Amish Experience Theater. The dramatic tale of an Amish family's efforts to preserve a lifestyle and a culture is unforgettably told through the high-tech, multi-media production of Jacob's Choice.

The presentation captures both the facts and the soul of the Inn's Amish neighbors, answering many questions and documenting the reasons behind these people's lives.

Gordon and Gwen have found that many of those coming their way consider sympathetically their expressions of faith. Virtues which tend to pass us by in the fast pace of life are practiced here, such as modesty, humility, and obedience to God's will, are lived out in the community of faith. Thus, guests of the bed and breakfast leave the tranquillity of the area and a peaceable people having been touched by it in some way. And many return again and again to consider what the Psalmist says: "...The meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace."
