The Inn

This three-story brick Colonial Revival home was built in the early 1920s by Howard G. Longenecker, a prominent Mount Joy citizen who made his money in banking and tobacco. A family home for years, it later was a boarding house for male teachers in the 1950s and 60s before becoming the bed and breakfast it is today.
The building still retains its distinctive architectural features including original doors, thick mouldings and columns, built-in cabinets, and even a butler’s call station in the kitchen. Although you can still see the call buttons in the rooms, the bells are no longer connected to the kitchen, much to the delight of the innkeeper!

Meet Your Innkeeper Olde Square Inn Innkeeper with a green apron holding a piece of strudel In its 30+ years as a lodging, I am delighted to be the third Innkeeper at Olde Square Inn. Becoming its caretaker has been the fulfillment of a life-long dream. Before purchasing the Inn, I had a wonderful career in teaching. For 24 Septembers I led fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students in a variety of studies – including Home Ec!
I’ve enjoyed creating a warm and inviting escape for you. You can revel in some much-needed relaxation at the Inn, then take some time to go out and explore. As long-time Lancaster County resident, I have my finger on the best things to see and do in the area. I am passionate about guiding you in making the most of your stay.
Among its many awards, Olde Square Inn has been voted the #1 Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster County on Trip Advisor. We continue to earn 5 Stars for excellent customer service each year. Our Inn was featured as the cover story for Inns and B&Bs of Lancaster County and in Lancaster County Magazine was touted as a great venue for elopements and intimate weddings.
So what does an Innkeeper do when she’s not busy keeping an Inn? If I’m not trying out new recipes for my live cooking demos, you can find me with the grandkids, reading through a stack of books, or enjoying the company of friends.
I am so happy to invite you to become part of the Olde Square Inn family!

Great place to stay! Had a great time. Nancy welcomed us with opened arms. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had dinner at Bube’s after we arrived it was a short walk and even around midnight seemed safe walking. The next morning Nancy made us the most wonderful breakfast. The French toast bake was out of this world. We will stay again if in the area. Thank you!

Cozy pre-Valentine couple getaway My hubby and I enjoyed our stay 10/10! Nancy was the most gracious hostess, and her cooking was top notch! She is very knowledgeable about Mount Joy and surrounding towns, and it helped us find great shopping and eating. Everything was so clean and neatly decorated. We splurged and added a custom charcuterie and wine upon arrival. The mix of treats was so perfect and it was enough to snack on for 2 days. We will be back during warmer months. Thank you!!

Wonderful Getaway! We loved our stay at the Olde Square Inn. We were there for New Year's Eve. The Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas, we even has a small tree in our room! Nancy, the innkeeper was so welcoming and helpful with any questions we had and made us feel so welcome as soon as we arrived. We also enjoyed a delicious made from scratch breakfast and she even sent us with brownies to go that were probably the best brownies I've ever had! it's evident that Nancy loves what she does and she does it very well! I would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to return.

Meeting the parents! We stayed in the cottage in the back of the property. It was so charming and comfortable and all the comforts of home. We didn't have breakfast, had other plans, but it sounded so yummy. very convient to town. The only recommendation I would make is for softer pillows.

Great B & B in a quaint little town! Nancy was very friendly and made us feel like friends. Our room was beautiful and clean. Breakfast each morning was delicious, Nancy even accommodated a a dietary need. Nancy recommended many restaurants in the area, which we chose the Catacomb under the ground, such a cool place.

Weekend Getaway Stayed with my wife, and another couple went with us. The place was extremely neat and clean. Nancy was a great hostess, and we asked for suggestions on some things. Nancy was spot on with her recommendations. the breakfasts that we received on Saturday, and Sunday was outstanding. I would highly recommend the Olde Square Inn, and the next time we are in the area it will surely be our place to stay. Great Time

Highly recommend - What a wonderful stay! As with any B&B, things start and end with the innkeeper. Nancy is a wonderful host, amazing cook, and opens her lovely home to guests. Breakfasts are worth getting started for, there are several work areas for us “work from everywhere” folks. The rooms were clean & comfortable. If your business takes to Mount Joy or the Lancaster area, staying at the Olde Square Inn will be a highlight of your trip.
