About

The Olde Square Inn, our Lancaster County bed & breakfast, was build in the early 1920's in the Colonial Revival style. 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.

wonderful experience

My Partner and I spent a night in this wonderful place on our road trip from Kansas. Nancy is a wonderful, generous hostess and she made our experience perfect. Our room was charming (the old Parlor) and breakfast on the porch was very special. Mount Joy is a charming town and I highly recommend that you stop here for the night if you are in the area.


A beautiful, relaxing and classy B & B

This place has a "home away from home" appeal. The Inn Keeper is very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts are delicious and Nancy has a flair for detail without being fussy. This was our second visit and we prefer this to a hotel in the area. Our son lives nearby and we are happy to have discovered the Olde Square Inn in this quaint little town.

Innkeeper Response
It was so great to have you and your family out again, and it was my pleasure to be able to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. I always enjoy talking with you and enjoyed your extended family as well! Hope to see you again soon!

5 star stay!

4.6 on March 15, 2016

I felt so relaxed, and my daughter was getting married! Nancy, the innkeeper, took care of absolutely everything! It was such a lovely venue, the photos do NOT do it justice! I wish I could describe better, the feeling of being pampered, in such a lovely place!! I questioned my daughter's choice, almost 2 hrs from Philadelphia, but it was so worth the trip! The drive was just lovely, enjoyable, as well!

Innkeeper Response
Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed hosting your daughter's wedding and being part of your family's wonderful day. Everyone was relaxed, gracious, and a pleasure to be around. Hope to see all of you you back to celebrate the first anniversary! Thanks so much for choosing Olde Square Inn as your wedding venue.

Nancy was such a gracious host. She made us feel welcomed right off the bat. We'll return to The Olde Square Inn someday and highly recommend others choosing it for their stay when in Mt. Joy.

Everything was perfect. We have stayed here in the past and always loved it. This time was especially good due to the new owner's over-the-top friendliness and welcoming demeanor. Breakfast was excellent!! We will be returning as often as possible in the future. Highly recommend!!

Excellent service! Food was beyond amazing. Rooms were nice. Our room just happened to be above the kitchen so it was a little noisy in the morning. We would stay here again.
