Wow, Ronks, Pennsylvania is the epicenter of Amish-themed tourism. It had been years since I had been to Ronks and it has changed. Big box stores, outlet malls, and upscale hotels give this area around the Dutch Wonderland theme park an almost Pigeon Forge feel.

So if you want an inexpensive, no-frills bed and shower while you are in Amish country than look no further than Ye Olde Amish Inn. Here are some of my photos:
