The Aaronsburg Inn

100 East Aaron Square , Aaronsburg, PA 16820 USA (Show map)


Built in the Federal style circa 1802, the Aaronsburg Inn, a Central PA area bed and breakfast, was restored to welcome the traveler whose pronounced taste for comfort is matched with their eye for quality. We are tucked away in the village of Aaronsburg, Pennsylvania. Those who stay with us will be able to enjoy a retreat in a charming atmosphere with modern amenities and welcoming hosts. At The Aaronsburg Inn you will find a choice of immaculately prepared, professionally decorated rooms - each with its own private bathroom, soft pressed sheets and plush Egyptian cotton towels. For breakfast you will find exceptional fare, delightful presentation and generous portions. The Aaronsburg Inn is located on Route 45 (The Purple Heart Highway) in the National Historic District of Aaronsburg. A refreshing alternative to a typical hotel stay, our B and B is conveniently located between Penn State University and Bucknell University. The Centre County Region offers every attraction imaginable, from an abundance of outdoor activities to America's only water cavern. Every season has its charms. There is plenty to do ... or not to do as the mood strikes.

Always a wonderful stay

We stay with Jack and Jayne for Penn State football games. It is a pleasant 35 minute or so ride to State College and away from the crowds and traffic. The inn is spotless and comfortable. Jack, as host, is so accommodating and spends the time to get to know his guests. His breakfasts are yummy as well! Jack is always trying to innovate and improve upon what he offers but there is really no need. The Aaronsburg Inn is a real gem!!

We have stayed at the Aaronsburg Inn every summer the night before my family reunion. This area of PA is so beautiful with all the Amish farms and mountain views that we always enjoy our morning walk in the country. Just this past Sunday on our walk we saw a doe and her 2 fawns, a rabbit, a herd of draft horses, and a mole, LOL. Three Amish families passed us going to church in their horse drawn buggies and they all waved to us. The Inn is a perfect place to stay and the hospitality cannot be beat. I only wish it was closer to us as we are 10 hours away, but can't wait for our next visit in August 2018.

Incredible find!

A rare and incredible place hidden in the middle of PA! This place is great. Very well maintained, incredible decor, comfortable beds and bathrooms, and great TV service. The food was amazing, and the proprietor (who lives just offsite) was warm and engaging. We will definitely be back!

My family has been staying at the Aaronsburg Inn for years. We love the Inn, the hospitality, the food, and the local area. The proprietors are terrific - friendly, accommodating and efficient. The Inn is charming and comfortable without being fussy. Highly recommended. JM, Chevy Chase, MD

Another wonderful stay

Jack once again was a gracious host for a PSU football weekend! The inn is spotless and breakfast is yummy. Numerous selections are available. Given the high cost of just average hotel rooms in State College for home football games, the Aaronsburg Inn is a bargain. Everyone should give this wonderful inn a try.

Aaronsburg Inn - Another Great Stay

Excellent B&B close to Penn State University in College Park, PA. We stay with Jack and Jane when we visit our daughter at school and it is great to get away from the hustle and bustle of campus for a relaxing stay. The breakfast is incredible. Delicious every time with unique gourmet offerings cooked to order. We recommend Aaronsburg Inn for everyone.

Fall Festival visit to the Inn

Awesome place-the hospitality and caring attitude of the owner, Jack, makes this our "go-to" place when we visit the area. The breakfast menu is world class so be prepared to enjoy a memorable breakfast! We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in the valley.

Hidden Gem in Aaronsburg!

Our host Jack was very, very friendly. Made you feel right at home. We stayed in room 7, which was the top floor - you instantly get the sense you are staying in a classic, Centre County, Penns Valley attic suite, with very very comfortable accommodations. Private bath was very clean and modern as one would expect. Recommend paring stay with a visit to the Elk Creek Cafe in Millheim for dinner during stay.

Perfect Stay

Stayed just one night on our travels through central PA. Jack was a most gracious host and his breakfast was awesome!
