My husband and I stayed for two nights. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast alone was worth the stay. Nancy treated us like family and had recommendations for places to visit and where to eat. She made us feel very welcome and we would definitely go back.

We went to the Olde Square Inn for a getaway to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays which all fall in to the same couple of weeks. Nancy had champagne ready for us and couldn't have been more helpful, informative, and kind. The inn is fantastic - we had the opportunity to see several of the rooms and they are individually...

Hi, Joe, Sorry that I missed you and Cara and the rest of the gang, but I'm confident Joan took great care of you during your stay. I'm so glad that you had a relaxing and refreshing stay, and you know that if you've been here once, you're automatically family (except we won't make you take the garbage out, haha!)....

This beautiful home transformed into a Victorian style B&B makes visiting Lancaster feel like a first class getaway. We sparked friendships by the fireplace, woke up to new fallen snow, and ate a delicious breakfast in the den. The hospitality at the olde square inn made us feel like we were staying with family. Thank you for a memorable weekend!

Hi, Kathy! It was great to see you and Jim again for the holidays. So glad that you were happy with my dinner recommendation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Olde Square Inn, our Lancaster County bed and breakfast, is a beautifully restored architectural gem of the Colonial Revival era. Setting our accommodations apart from other area B&Bs, we offer a hot, three-course breakfast, coffee and treats available 24 hours, an in-ground pool during the summer months, and handicap accessibility in the child-friendly Carriage House. The Inn is also a beautiful venue for hosting retreats, small weddings, and special celebrations. A pleasant departure from hotels, Olde Square Inn is conveniently located on the historic square of this quaint, but expanding, town. We are just minutes from Highway 283/30 that leads to Hershey, Lancaster, Spooky Nook Sports, York, and Gettysburg. Amtrak, slotted for a $27.5 million update, is located only two blocks away. Our lovely suites and rooms include private baths, mini refrigerators, TV, wireless internet, queen or king beds, air conditioning, and fireplaces or stoves. If you are planning a special occasion, anniversary, or birthday, be sure to check out the Carriage House as the ultimate in privacy and luxury for your Lancaster County getaway. ... more   less
