Great inn, sweetest inn keeper!

Very cute inn, with an amazing inn keeper. She was the sweetest. Made us a great breakfast in the morning, and before we left she gave us a snack for the road. I will be back!

Loved staying at The Olde Square Inn! The new innkeeper, Nancy, was so welcoming and will, no doubt, transform this already wonderful B&B into a magnificent inn ... she has a wonderful sense of style! The room and bed were warm and comfortable. The downstairs living/dining area was comfortable, coffee and tea always available ... and breakfast was fantastic! Best of luck to you, Nancy! ... Marie


Great B&B

My husband and I stayed in the Antebellum room. It was a great choice, but from what we could tell, all of the rooms are wonderful. Breakfast was delicious, be sure not to miss it! Overall, a great experience - we highly recommend this B&B if you are in the Mount Joy area. Be sure to check out Bube's Brewery - our reason for visiting. We also learned that we should have checked out Zuckfoltzfus Brewery also right in town, sorry we missed it - next time! Thanks Georgie for a wonderful stay at your lovely B&B.


Bridal Bliss

5 on November 02, 2014

We rented four rooms for our daughter's bridal party and it was a wonderful experience for all of us. The rooms were beautiful with very tasteful decor and the breakfast was made fresh, delicious, and was worked into our morning wedding schedule. The bride slept amazingly sound in her Elizabeth Anne bed!


Be careful.....You may not want to go home!!!

What a wonderful weekend at the Olde Square Inn in Mt. Joy, PA. My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone needing accommodations in the area. One of the best features is location - it is near (within ½ hour) many of the more popular Lancaster County attractions, yet you feel that when you retire for the evening that you are “getting away from it all” in a small town feel. We stayed here so we could walk to Bube’s Brewery, since we had reservations to eat at the Catacombs on Saturday evening. It was an easy walking distance (about 4-5 blocks) in good weather. The inn itself is a beautiful old building with charm and character. We stayed in the Antebellum room and found it was a good size and quite comfortable. I liked that there were sufficient shelf space to place our toiletries, etc. The whole inn was very clean and well cared for. I liked that there were many places you could relax, including the “great room” in the communal area, a beautiful veranda, a balcony on the 2nd floor available to all patrons, and a lovely backyard area with seating. We felt welcome to make use of any of these areas. We had an opportunity to make use of the pool, which was refreshing on a hot summer afternoon! One suggestion is that if you are planning on using the pool, pack your own towels. The inn does not provide towels for use at the pool. Breakfasts were WONDERFUL! Many compliments to Georgie for her delicious preparations! Having breakfast at 8:30 was a perfect time – not too early, but yet early enough that you can get a start on your day. The innkeepers, Georgie and Paul, are very helpful to their guests in making suggestions on things to do. They are able to steer you to restaurants/attractions in the area that they would personally recommend. Overall, I would definitely stay again and would recommend to family and friends. We are very satisfied customers!


You'll love the "Carriage House"

4.6 on July 30, 2014

July 29, 2014 IF a cottage all to your self with an amazing jacuzzi is a hot button, don't hesitate to book the "Carriage House". Clean and hand painted walls and oil paintings add to the experience. As for breakfast, Georgie will make you wish she also made lunch and supper it's that good. Also, has double sinks and a tiled shower that could literally fit the whole family in at once. We toured the main house which is a 1920's Colonial loaded with antiques and history. If you like vintage, your heart will melt!! Thanks for a wonderful stay!!


what a great time

All I can say can't wait to visit again really loved it


charming and comfortable

The Old Square Inn is a lovely old home that has been updated with all modern conveniences. The period furnishings are interesting and beautiful, but it has a homey comfort, its not a museum. Breakfast was very tasty, served on the side porch, looking out to the garden. Location is great for touring the Lancaster area, but Mount Joy is a nicely walkable and quiet town with shops and restaurants nearby, to escape the bustle of the more touristy towns. Our 3 day stay was very enjoyable and I recommend it.
