The Miller Family
About The Miller Family
Doc Dan and Doc Mary began their lifelong commitment to Amish Country in 1967 when Daniel Miller accepted a call to come back and open a doctor's office in Walnut Creek. Raising four children and being the only physician for miles meant that life wasn't exactly relaxing for the Miller family. But a caring community and a peaceful setting helped. Building their first house "back in the woods" just below the Manor where their son and family still live, the Miller children could camp and play endlessly in the woods and creek. The children grew...and soon a tennis court with basketball hoops was added to keep the high school kids busy. But motorbikes and other fun things aside, Cindy, Bart, Eric and Heidi all remember a childhood both of fun AND work, like mending fences, mowing, hours of music lessons and other daily chores. By 1991, all of the children had moved from home with families of their own. Becoming involved with the Walnut Creek Der Dutchman restaurant and working with the company only deepened Dan and Mary's sense of gratitude and commitment to the area's business community, church, the Amish community and visitors who come to enjoy such a unique area. After selling some of the successful family businesses that were started by Mary's parents, the "house on the hill", now known as Miller Manor, was built in 1999, fulfilling a dream to live a still-busy retirement in the sunshine and breezes, to wake up everyday to a beautiful view, and to host family and friends when they all come home. Daniel and Mary were given an opportunity to relocate to Walnut Hills Retirement Community in 2015, where they continue to reside today. They continue to walk over 3 miles each morning and are active still in family businesses, church and the community. The decision was made by the family to maintain the property as a vacation rental, in order to share the wonderful location and setting with others for family gatherings and more.
The Miller Family purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2015
Why The Miller Family chose Sugarcreek
Have we mentioned the views? They are spectacular. But just as important are the reasons behind the decision to make this property a vacation rental available to guests. There are no better memories in the Miller family than 10 grandchildren gathering together to play in Grandpa and Grandma's house. Sardines, shield dodgeball, winkum, hide and seek, tag, scavenger hunts, Baby Monkey and many other activities involving candy or running or hiding were the norm. Family music concerts, singing hymns, and Christmas dinner in the dining room were holiday traditions. Our family has made countless wonderful memories gathering together at Miller Manor. We hope that others may also experience family and friends in a peaceful setting that fosters growth and joy in relationships.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The peaceful setting of Miller Manor is remarkable. From the lovely bedrooms and large common areas inside the home where children and adults can relax and enjoy to the firepit in the front courtyard with a never ending view of rolling hills and frequent crimson sunsets, this is where you'll want to spend your time! It will be difficult to pull yourself away, however, there are many activities and ways to be entertained in the neighboring towns of Walnut Creek, Berlin, Sugarcreek and beyond. This is an area full of delights for all ages. Having a "home base" like Miller Manor will be a treat for all looking to get away from routine and the hustle and bustle of daily life. One of the owners shares a driveway with the Manor and is within view of the property. The owners are always happy to give recommendations of area attractions and restaurant suggestions. Also, the owners have two young goats that they take on walks and who are happy to have visitors greet them outside their pasture.

Another great trip
This was the fourth time we have spent a long weekend at Miller Manor. The property is always in top notch condition and the property manager is easy to get a hold of and responds to messages very quickly. We have a group of 18 and have plenty of room to spread out and not be right on top of each other. However, there are also rooms large enough that all 18 of us can be together to play a board game or eat a meal. There are lots of things to do at the Manor (movie room, ping pong, billiards, treadmills, tennis, basketball) and lots of shops and things to do in the surrounding areas. We love spending time here and plan to come back for years to come.
Thank you for returning annually. We’ll need to recognize and celebrate your fifth stay next year! We love to host friend (or family) groups because the Manor Is the perfect space for spending quality time together without feeling any sense of crowding. We appreciate that you treat the Manor with such care so that it can be enjoyed by groups like yours for years to come. We’ll look forward to hosting you again next year!
We have gone annually to the Miller Manor for our BSA Staff Conference. Staying together in this location lets us learn more about each other and plan for the upcoming year. It is a great location!
We have enjoyed hosting your group annually. We hope you will continue to consider the Manor for your conferences or other group events. Thank you.
After Christmas getaway
A great time was had by all! The house was gorgeous and decorated so beautiful for Christmas. Several members of our immediate family were able to be in one house together from a 2 year old to 85 year old. Thank you for the experience of staying in this beautiful house.
We are so glad you were all able to stay together to celebrate Christmas. We hope you will return for future gatherings!
