Except for the Penn Alps Restaurant, this isn't worth the stop. About the only interesting artisan was the smithy - an artist with unique (and expensive) creations. Other than that, the shops in the Village offer pretty much that's in the Penn Alps Restaurant shop...More

A very old area that could use a refresh. Not new buildings, but clapboards that have fallen off many years ago and weeds growing in the gutters. In Sept, like Deep Creek, this place is empty. Of the limited number of stores, 5 were closed...More

Small little walk through a log cabin town. Very educational. People are very willing to explain what they are doing or the history of the buildings.

What a cute place to visit, just walking around outside and taking pictures of the individual shops was just as enjoyable as going inside to see what they were selling. We did not eat there so I can’t comment on the food.

Beautiful setting. Wonderful artisans. Get place to loose yourself in history for an afternoon. The Yoder House is especially interesting & is staffed with people to answer your questions. Must see when in the area. Great place to find unique Christmas gifts or unusual items...More

There were a few artisans there today, and I enjoyed seeing their work. The environment, with old cabins and tall trees is interesting and refreshing. Sort of a trip back in time.

My wife and I visited these artists while on an excursion with Deer Valley YMCA family camp. The bird carver was really cool. My wife and I bought some soap at the soap business. If money was no object I would have bought several birds....More

I would say yes as it’s made up of lots of little hut like houses with a nice out door walkway between them all.
