Travelers' Choice
Our award-winning Bed & Breakfast began life as a mini mansion for businessman Howard Longenecker. The building still retains its distinctive architectural features including original doors, thick mouldings and columns, built-in cabinets, and even a butler’s call station in the kitchen. You'll enjoy our casual, welcoming elegance. Relax in the common area, put your feet up, grab a cup of coffee and a snack, and make yourself at home in front of the fireplace. In the summer our delicious three-course breakfast is served on the side porch. You might even hear the clip-clop of a horse and buggy moving down Main Street! You can enjoy the ambiance of the porch throughout the day, step up to the Grand Balcony, or sit poolside. Awarded the 2017 American Small Business Champion, the Inn is also an ideal venue for hosting retreats, small weddings, and special celebrations. We know you’ll love all aspects of this graceful Inn. And, as we say, you’ll “Enter as guests, leave as friends!

Hubby and I spent two nights at the Inn. Nancy was so friendly and welcoming. The home is a mix of old charm, filled with beautiful, interesting antiques and modern, high-end amenities. Beautiful maintained, inside and out. I loved the antiques scattered all around the house. The grounds were beautiful! After the grand tour of the house, we were shown to our room. Our room was lovely and the breakfast was a 3 course, gourmet breakfast including dessert. All made by our lovely host Nancy. She poured her heart into each breakfast, which she personally made herself. It was delicious, and decadent!! The advice on where to go and what to see was spot on. We ate locally Friday at Mosby’s Pub (great food), Saturday, after an amazing breakfast outside on the beautiful veranda, we explored locally (the town of Lititz, PA, which is a quaint little town with lots of shops and restaurants) then went to a wedding. Sunday, we had another amazing meal and headed back home. It was a lovely time. Can’t wait to go back! Next time, I would like to stay longer, explore Lancaster, and visit Sight and Sound Theater! 5 stars for the entire stay!

My wife and I chose Olde Square Inn for our honeymoon...and could not have been more pleased with our stay! Our room was clean and comfortable. The hostess was very thoughtful and accommodating. And the meals were incredible! We enjoyed meeting other guests and had a variety of travel and entertainment options, within a short walk or drive.

My Mom and I were on a trip touring Lancaster and knew we wanted to stay in a Bed and Breakfast. After looking up a few, we chose this one because of its location to the Sight and Sound Theater as well as its location near a few small towns we were planning on visiting. We were immediately welcomed by Mrs. Nancy, her smile said it all. Her kindness and warmth were just what we needed after a long drive. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the 2nd story balcony as well as her wonderful hospitality. The three-course breakfast meals were delicious...a highlight for sure. If we are back in the air, we will give Mrs. Nancy a call!

My husband and I recently spent time at the beautiful, historic Old Square Inn. We were immediately welcomed by the warm and friendly innkeeper, Nancy. She showed us around the inn and shared its history with us. The breakfast menu for the following morning was posted ahead of time and Nancy was very willing to make any dietary adjustments if needed. Speaking of the food, the breakfasts that Nancy prepared were in a class of their own. Her culinary skills and warm presentation of each of the three courses were wonderful. We stayed in a beautiful room equipped with a mini fridge, cold water, a very comfortable bed, cookies, plush, high quality linens, and a complimentary carafe of wine just to name a few amenities. We also enjoyed time in and by the clean pool, as well as time in the lounge chairs on the grand balcony. The area of Mount Joy itself gives a refreshing small town feel and we thoroughly enjoyed walking in the town. If you like Mexican food, Tres Hermanos is a delicious and reasonable spot for lunch or dinner. Overall, our stay at Olde Square Inn was remarkable and provided the rest and relaxation we were hoping for. We would definitely recommend Olde Square Inn to our friends and family.

My husband and I stayed at the Olde Square Inn for three nights. The owner, Nancy, was so welcoming and cooked amazing gourmet 3 course breakfasts. We so enjoyed our conversations with Nancy and the other guests. Our stay was in the midst of a heat wave and after touring in the morning, we would come back each afternoon to cool off in the pool in the backyard. The backyard was a quiet little oasis. We stayed in the Carriage House and the air conditioner was very quiet and kept the room very cool. The room was quite large and beautifully decorated. I would highly recommend staying at the Olde Square Inn.

We had the pleasure of spending one night at the Olde SquareInn recently I wish we could have stayed longer. The host Nancy was incredibly accommodating to our situation. We arrived very late but our key was waiting for us so we could check in on our own. Snacks and cold water were in the room and downstairs as well. The bed was very comfortable with high quality linens. The towels and toiletries were high quality as well. Everything was sparking clean and well thought out. Little touches could be seen throughout the B&B. In the morning, we enjoyed a lovely homemade breakfast served to us by Nancy. It was a short, but wonderful stay. We highly recommend this Inn near Lancaster.

We stayed at the Olde Square Inn for a small family getaway/mini birthday celebration. It is a beautiful old home with lovely gardens and a pool. It is immaculately kept and conveniently located near all Lancaster county has to offer. The innkeeper, Nancy, is a gem. She goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is comfortable, is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and cooks a delicious breakfast. We can not say enough good things— highly recommend!

We stayed at the carriage house section of the B&B. Lovely Garden and pool to relax by. The Inn keeper (Nancy) always goes the extra mile to make your stay the best it can be. The breakfasts are nicely done as well. Nice little town with cool shops and plenty of nice places to eat. Highly recommend staying here, Will & Jenn
