    It’s a shame that you didn’t have more time, you could’ve driven to the Shady Maple! It’s an experience!

      Believe me, I REALLY wanted to check out Shady Maple, but I just decided I didn’t have time….I was bummed for sure!

    I agree their pie is wonderful. We have camped at Country acres just down the road. Our favorite Amish store is Countryside Road Stand on Stumptown Road, Ronks. If you want a great restaurant try Good & Plenty at the family style dining room. it’s on 896 Smoketown Road.

    Seeing your visit to Dutch Haven brought tears to my eyes. I’m guessing my first visit there was probably 1955 or so. It was a traditional lunch stop on the way to the Jersey shore. A bbq sandwich, root beer and shoo fly pie with whipped cream. Unfortunately, I no longer live in central PA, and am craving the above right now. My Mother loved the Shady Maple too. Thanks for your great posts.

      Mary, wow, you basically have been going to Dutch Haven as long as it has been around…I am envious that you were able to visit back then before it become so touristy…I mean, I love the area now, but back then I bet it was pure paradise! – Kevin

    Thank you for the pictures. Saw the shoo-fly pie and my mouth watered. Looks so good. Bet it would be great with ice cream too.
