Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Celebrated our wedding anniversary weekend at the inn.The room was very comfortable. Georgie and Paul were gracious hosts. They were helpful in providing information on places to eat & helping us with suggestions for local places to visit. The food was excellent. We would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The Summerfield room was very nice & quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable.

The house is pretty, our room (the Charleston) has pretty antiques and a comfy bed! The attached bathroom is spacious. There is an upstairs balcony with pond and sitting area. Breakfast was not only beautiful to the eye but yummy to the tummy! French toast with fresh peaches that the owners had canned them selves. The owner has been more than helpful, we arrived after coming from another small town and large hotel where my husband had an accident with a door that landed us in urgent care for stitches. Thus making us miss a play that we had tickets to, a sold out performance. She was on the phone and made arrangements for us to see the performance before our bags were unpacked! This is why B&B are nice to stay in, you get a little family away from home! Oh and she was able to answer questions about local area attractions.

This was our first and only stay at a B & B. This property was not family friendly and we stayed in a converted garage apartment. We were not allowed inside the main house and could only stay on the porch for meals. There was no cable or internet available. Breakfast was served daily with limited portions and no second helpings were available. Linens were supposed to be changed every other day, but we had to ask the innkeeper for clean ones. Also, we were not given enough towels for each person. There were no brochures or guides available to look at as they were confined to the main house. The area of Mt Joy had nothing joyful in it and had poor quality restaurants. I would not recommend this B & B for any families.

I was going to give a comment for each of the negatives this woman gave.
But then again I thought "if you don't give respect, appreciate what was done to accomodate you, communicate, tell the truth or the whole story, there is no sense in addressing the issues.
Our guest books, reviews on Trip Advisor along with Bed and Breakfast.com tells the true story.
We may not make the "mark" every time but we and our staff give it 110% each and every time for our guests.
Some folks you absolutely can't please and they dont' give all the facts or tell the truth.
Fortunately there is an outstanding reputation with our valued, appreciative and wonderful guests who come through our doors.
Others who stayed the same week have just written and submitted reviews to various places giving high praise for their stay.....

We had an extended stay and we loved everything about the Old Square Inn. 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 excellent. The pancakes with fresh strawberries were especially yummy! 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.

Georgie and Paul are lovely hosts. We would stay again and again!!

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.
