Shipshewana, a short drive from Mirror Lake B&B

Spring and summer will soon be here and we will all be making vacation plans. Shipshewana is a small town a short drive from Mirror lake B&B. It was built up around an Amish community, their lifestyle and their trades.
This tree is on the main level of the recently rebuilt Davis Mercantile, it has a basement and 3 floors with about 25 stores. Jo-Jo pretzel's, candles, Vera Bradley, Antiques, quality Quilting supplies, a Scrap booking store, Bakery and Candy and much much more!!!

This is just one of many places to get Quilt material and supplies. If you can't find it here I'm sure there's another store just around the corner.

This Merry-Go-Round is built on the top floor and really works. Many of the horses are hand carved. After your ride you can go to a Puppet show just down the hall.

This is just one of the many ice sculptures that were placed around Shipshewana. This one is in front of the very popular Yoder's department store. It also has a material and variety store, across the way is the Yoder's Hardware and Yoder's grocery store all in one stop.

My husband's name is Jed he and his brother Jim are the owners and operators of Hog Back Hill Holstein. They are dairy and crop farmers we live on a 150 acre farm in northeastern Indiana and we are surrounded by Amish farmers.I enjoy working in my garden or one of my flower beds. Jed and I were both 10 year 4-her's and so were all three of the kids. Our favorites were showing sheep and contest horses we went to MANY show. I also enjoy riding horses we are lucky to have many trails through the woods or work in an arena. We enjoy the rustic, private and peaceful atmosphere, paddle boat rides, fishing, setting around the campfire and watching beautiful sun sets on Mirror Lake. Coming to Mirror lake is more then a destination.... it’s an awaking a life style almost forgotten.
