Nancy greeted us like we were part of her family. She gave us a tour of her beautiful inn before showing us to our room (Antebellum). It was large, clean, and decorated with period furniture. The bathroom was large and airy. There were several windows in the room overlooking the quaint Mt. Joy street below. The breakfasts were delicious. Nancy... More

Loved having both of you stay with us, and we were happy to be able to serve you something you enjoyed at breakfast. Antiquing at Burning Bridge and Tollbooth Antiques and all the other great places in Columbia is so much fun, but I thought I'd share a little bit of my vinyl collection with you! I'm looking forward to... More

Everything we hoped for and then some! Nancy, the owner, made us feel so welcome and at home. The entire Inn was so elegant and clean with period antiques and early 20th century charm. We enjoyed our stay in the Elizabeth Ann, a cozy room with a great view of the garden and swimming pool. We especially enjoyed the scrumptious... More

Nancy the owner was a very sweet and accommodating host, and the rooms were superclean. The breakfast was very creative and tasty, and most of all their beds and pillows where the most comfortable I've ever slept on, it was like sleeping on air.

My wife and I spent just one night at The Olde Square Inn. Too bad only one night. We would have loved to stay longer. The hostess, Nancy, was the kindest, friendliest lady.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful and relaxing experience at Nancy's B&B. Nancy was extremely nice and helpful. The room was very spacious and the sheets on the bed were so soft. The two meals we had were delicious. We would definitely return this coming Spring. Albert R. and Eileen C.

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
