Something To Look Forward To

As many of us are still under a "Stay at Home Order" and getting a little stir crazy - now is the time to plan for some future fun. The time when we can leave our homes and make a few random stops at our favorite coffee shop, retail store, market or restaurant. When we can worry less about germs and more about the fun we will be having this weekend, next weekend and in three months. We have the time now, so why not start doing a little research and planning for when we are allowed to break out of our homes? If you always wanted to visit Charleston, NC - start looking at hotels, restaurants and attractions and putting together a future itinerary.

Why not start planning your next trip to Lancaster County, PA? If you have visited before, you might want to stay a little longer or plan a few day trips to our area because there is so much to see and do. Of course we want you to come to Kitchen Kettle Village when all of this is over and we can safely welcome you back. And, I will remind you of all the virtues in case you forgot since we have been closed since March 17th.

1. Free - It doesn’t cost anything to visit or take in the beauty of the Village. It would be hard to leave without picking up a few of your favorite jams, pickles, salsa, fudge, popcorn or wine, but you can do it on a budget. You can also try our new “Contactless Pick-Up” that allows you to place an order online and schedule a pick-up time.

2. Fun - We usually have live music, plenty of fresh air, open spaces and interesting events. Check out the new events section of our website. Unfortunately we have had to cancel some spring events, but hope to offer events later this summer, fall and Christmastime. Check out the new events section of our website & don’t miss our delicious Tasting Tours.

3. Easy - With plenty of free parking, restaurants and lodging options you can come for a few hours of spend a few days when you stay at The Inn at Kitchen Kettle Village.

4. Shopping - With 40+ shops in the Village featuring everything from locally made furniture, food, quilts, leather goods & pottery - we have something for everyone on your list.
