Great Stay at Alden House

We had a terrific 2-night stay at Alden House in the Lilac Room. Service, room and breakfasts were great. We will return!!


Great weekend away

My sister purchased two nights at Alden House for my husband and I as a wedding gift. It was a great weekend away visiting the countryside and small town charm. We enjoyed our room at Alden House and the cozy gaslight fire. The bed was comfortable and everything was very clean. It was a treat to have breakfast ready each morning and sit down with other guests to talk, but we struggled to make it to 8:30 breakfast both mornings and would have enjoyed an extra snooze on vacation since nothing in town opens until 10am. Location was awesome - right downtown walking distance to everything! I would recommend this place to any visitors!

We have stayed at Alden House twice. It is a delightful old home right on the main street with shops, and restaurants nearby. The breakfasts are delicious and the dessert option is fun! We enjoyed our conversations with Lynndell and felt very welcomed and pampered.


Alden B&B was wonderful!

Country Inn with great location

4.2 on October 21, 2016

We stayed in the Lilac & Lace room & it was cozy. Has an extra alcove with a bed. We like Lititz & it was central to all the things we wanted to do in Lancaster County. We lived in Lancaster Co. many decades, now live in Fl, and the Alden House is a home away from home. The inn is in the most convenient location possible for shopping, dining, ice cream & candy shops, & Wilbur Chocolate! The owners are very nice & don't bother you too much, very good breakfasts--it's all just right! We will return.


Another Outstanding Stay

We stayed one night for a wedding and had a good experience. The rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast is not very good, but there are plenty of good restaurants nearby to help you out.
