Amish Country Furniture

We recently dropped by the Amish Country Furniture store, just outside Danville. It’s only about a 15 minute drive from the inn, and we ordered all the furniture for our cottages from there. Well, all we can say is that we always thought the furniture was great quality and value before, but now it’s over the top. The store is now under new owner Raymond Weaver. Raymond is justifiably proud of the workmanship and design that goes into all of his pieces. From his nearby workshop his Amish workers make heirloom-quality furniture that is sold and shipped all over the country. We were particularly impressed with one bedroom suite, made out of solid white oak, (no particle board or veneer in any of Raymond’s work) and with a design that is so special there’s a patent pending. The smaller of the two dressers in the set weighs 350 lbs! This is furniture that will last for generations.

I was kicking myself for not remembering to bring my camera along so I could take some pictures to show everyone on here. Next time, I promise.

In addition to furniture, the store also sells beautiful Polish Pottery pieces like the one pictured below.
In the same location as the furniture store is the Gateway To Amish Country travel and tourism information center. Visitors to the area will be able to pick up maps and brochures of many local points of interest.

The store is located right on highway 62, between Danville and Brinkhaven. And before we end up in a “who’s on first?” type routine, and you start asking, “But Yvonne, what’s the name of the Amish Country Furniture store?”, the name really is Amish Country Furniture.
