A land of fresh-baked goods, cozy cottages and horsedrawn wagon rides isn't just a thing of the past. That's what Kitchen Kettle Village is for.
Located in Pennsylvania's Dutch region, Kitchen Kettle Village features 42 shops (most of them outdoors), two restaurants and 17 lodging rooms.
Kitchen Kettle is known for its homemade goods most of all, because most items sold there are made by someone who lives in the village, whether it's food, clothing, quilts or gifts.

When you shop there, you're know you're buying local. The famous Canning Kitchen offers up cookie mixes, salsas and soups, as well as Dutch Gold Honey and peach amaretto honey butter. You can watch the staff canning goods throughout the day as well as learn how to conduct your own canning.
As for lodging, the town has a handful of options to choose from. You won't see any large hotel chains -- think small bed and breakfasts and country inns. You can check out all your lodging needsby calling one number for reservations (855-STAY-KKV). All rooms come with complimentary country breakfasts (Monday-Saturday) and a special gift for guests.
