Wonderful As Always!

I arrived at The Alden House a little early on a Friday and left on Sunday. My early arrival was no problem for John and Lynndell. I also requested a room change at the last minute, and this also was not a problem. The house is very charming, I love the creeky wooden floors, and the homey feel when I enter the door. I feel so relaxed when I enter. The town of Lititz is just out the front door, and everything is within walking distance. This was my second stay, and am looking forward to returning again. The breakfast was delicious. And Lynndell is very willing to change the menu to meet your dietary needs. The rooms are very well decorated and the cleanliness is outstanding!. If you want a place to relax and enjoy the town of Lititz, this is your go to place!....Thank you John and Lynndell for making my stay an enjoyable one once again!.

The nicest place to stay in Lititz

We have been coming here regularly at Thanksgiving and we keep coming back. The location is great, they have a parking lot and the property is well maintained. The breakfast is excellent. The only issue we found was that one room (the Parlour Suite, I believe) has stairs to the bathroom. It is very easy to hit your head on your way up.

Pleasant and Very Accommodating

We were in town for Thanksgiving weekend and were surprised that we were able to book just one night here on that busy weekend. We are very grateful that Alden House didn't have a 2-night minimum. It made life easy. We are also thankful that the hosts were able to accommodate our vegan diets for breakfast, which was delicious. Parking was easy and plentiful and their location is convenient and ideal. When we arrived, we just had to walk a block to the General Sutter Inn for a late dinner. We'll return in the future, I'm sure.

Comfortable room, perfect temperature, good bed, lights, tables, outlets where I needed them. Slept great! Easy checkin and checkout. Hospitable but not intrusive inn-keepers. Breakfast for grown-ups (not huge, not carb-focused).

A great place to stay in this lovely little town.

Beautiful place with lovely, clean, comfy rooms. Bedding luxurious. Breakfast combines traditional foods with interesting others. Very organized and easy to check in, out, navigate. Little candy stashes are yummy. Reasonable pricing. Cool outdoor spiral staircase to upper porch. We'll be back.

Very nice location in Lititz, PA as we went for a little get-away for the Second Friday in Lititz. The suite was very nice. Room was too warm for our liking but there ws a second floor balcony porch we could open the door a bit to cool the suite down. If we would need a place to stay in Lititz again, I would stay at Alden House again.

Close to town

Charming B&B in historic Lititz. The B&B is well situated in town with good dining and shopping opportunities a few steps away. Wilbur Chocolates, the Wolf Sanctuaty at Speedwell Forge, the Ephrata Cloisters, the Green Dragon Flea Market and scenic Lancaster County were highlights of our trip. Looking forward to another visit to this area.

Get away weekend!
