The Olde Square Inn
Ranked #1 of 10 Mount Joy B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 July 2013

Our first stay at a B&B, so we weren't really sure what to expect. The room (Summerfield) was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. The AC worked GREAT for my husband - too well for me! We had brought our own champagne and there were glasses upstairs available to us (thank you!). Located right in town, so walking anywhere was convenient. Georgie and Paul (and Jack) are lovely hosts. We would stay again.

We had a lovely stay at the Olde Square Inn. It was everything that you would imagine from a Bed & Breakfast. The ambiance was charming and the room (ground floor) provided a tremendous amount of space and privacy. Breakfast was served on the grounds and both mornings the portions and quality were ideal. Mt. Joy is a quiet small town and the B & B is centrally located on Main Street. It is an easy 15 minute drive to Lancaster and the heart of Amish country. There is a pool with a privacy fence in the back yard. Absolutely everything one could want in a B & B.

Room Tip: The downstairs room was huge and very private.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Carriage House. We have 2 children (ages 7 & 11) and it is very hard to find a B&B that allows younger children as guests. The room was clean and comfortable, with nice decor. It was especially nice to have the double sinks for 4 of us. We enjoyed the pool, and the breakfasts were great! The pancakes with fresh strawberries were especially yummy! We spent time in Lancaster one day, and Hershey the next. This is a nice mid-point between the two, and also just a nice quiet get-away if you don't want to stay in the bigger city.

The Olde Square Inn was an absolutely wonderful place to get away from the rush of everyday life and just relax! This was our first experience with B&Bs and we were a little nervous about it based on comments and stories from friends and family. We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of space we had and quality of the room, as well as the warm and friendly staff and well maintained state of the Inn and garden/pool area. We stayed in the Carriage House, so it gave us a little more privacy which made the experience all the more positive. We had a delicious breakfast out on the side lawn both mornings and had a chance to chat with some of the other guests. Georgie and Paul were wonderful hosts who always went out of their way to help us in any way they could. Mt. Joy is a beautiful little town with many lovely stores and yummy places to eat... especially Bube's Brewery! My husband and I highly recommend The Olde Square Inn to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway! We will be going back for sure!

Room Tip: The Carriage House is separate from the house and located in the back corner of the property. Very q...

This was our first time staying at a B&B and we really enjoyed the experience! My wife planned our fifth wedding anniversary for the Mt. Joy area and it was a weekend to remember! We stayed in the Key Largo room (top floor of the home) and were impressed with the space and quality of the room. The breakfasts were amazing each of the two mornings we had there, the pool area was very relaxing and comfortable, the location was perfect for the other activities we had planned and the staff was very friendly and willing to offer many options and suggestions for things to do in the area. We were also thrilled to run into another couple that was staying there and have some really great conversations about raising kids and just life in general. It was a very relaxing weekend that I won't soon forget. Thanks Georgie for having such a nice place for us to spend the weekend at! We highly recommend The Olde Square Inn!

We have stayed here quite a few times, but this was the first time since the new owners took over. We always had such incredible experiences before and were nervous that it might not meet our expectations. It was different, but that's to be expected. We still had a great time. Georgie and Paul have been working to upgrade the property. The gardens are quite lovely. Breakfast was delicious both mornings. We definitely will go back.

Room Tip: Love the carriage house for privacy.

You were nervous, we were nervous also! When new owners come on board sometimes the "changing of the guard" is not easy for some guests. We have heard lovely comments regarding Fran and especially her breakfast. So when it is has been good it keeps you on your toes to follow who preceded you especially when you are not seasoned innkeepers.
We are delighted we measured up!
We welcome you back any time. We can keep you going for weeks with things to experience or it is a good place to be "still" by the pond and pool and lets not forget the wonderful porches.
There is a Wellness Weekend Coming up in August as we are going into retreat mode for that weekend.

This review is long overdue. Stayed from May 31st to June 2nd. this was our first time at a bed and breakfast. Georgia and Paul we're very accommodating and helpful suggesting dinner places and various attractions around the area. We stayed at the Summerfield room, loved the stained glass blue jays in front of the window and the old style era of the room. Went to Mosby's pub for dinner I had the wings my boyfriend having nachos both were very delicious and the staff was very friendly and service was prompt.

Walked around Mount Joy for a good portion of the aftenoon and found a gem at "the shoppes on main" by the name of Michelle. One of the most friendliest person you'll ever meet. the shops themselves hold many handmade items that are very reasonably priced (loved the handmade baskets).

I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away for some peace and quiet or just a distraction from city living definitely will be staying here again at some point

Your nervous sometimes we are nervous to when we know it is a first time Bed and Breakfast guests. Each person has there all vision of what it should be and every Bed and Breakfast is unique because of our personalities, decor, ameneties etc.
Delighted, just delighted we made the mark!
It is you who makes me smile when we know you have enjoyed yourselves and innkeeping enjoyable.
Your right about Michelle, she is just the sweetness soul!
The Shoppes on Main are "incubator shops". If they do well they want to venture into a full blown store.
We love it when people come and joy the calmness, the stillness, gardens and walking to restaurants, shops etc.
This quiets the soul and brings you back to enjoying life!
