Alden House is located on Main Street in Lititz, PA, a small, historic town only a few miles from Lancaster County’s Amish area. The house dates from the mid 1800s, and some of the neighboring buildings along Main Street date back to the mid 1700s and have a rich history.
The innkeepers, Bob and Shirley, are gracious hosts, and make you feel like a member of the family. The rooms are immaculate, and each is distinctively decorated with antiques and family photographs. There are plenty of books and magazines available in each room. The suites have a sitting/TV area in addition to a comfortable Queen size bed. There is a side porch where you can watch the Koi in their pond, or relax and read.
Breakfasts include an incredible choice of juices, fresh fruit, a delicious entrée, meats, assorted breads, and a dessert, all served attentively by Bob, while Shirley makes occasional visits from the kitchen, where she does all the cooking herself. All of Shirley’s breakfasts are outstanding. Alden House entrées are wonderful, including quiche, baked egg dishes, crepes, omelettes, and more. Homemade desserts include delicious puddings, cakes, and pastries. Recently, we especially enjoyed her German Stollen and Bluberry Brickle with Whipped Cream. Local ingredients are used in a variety of dishes, and all are very well prepared.
Both Bob and Shirley are very familiar with the area, and can offer some unusual sightseeing ideas, in addition to the familiar Amish destinations. Since we have been visiting regularly for many years, they have been able to find some new and unusual places for us to visit. Every visit has been memorable, and we are looking forward to our next visit, which will be very soon!
