During last year's trip to Hershey park we found that the lodging prices had increased at hotels close to the park, so we decided to look around a bit for a more economical place to stay. We found the Olde Square Inn bed and breakfast about 25 minutes from the park and decided to give it a try.
It turned out to be a perfect fit for us. The inn is located in Mount Joy, is small, but friendly. We had a comfortable room overlooking the garden and pool area. The Garden Room was immaculate and the adjoining bathroom had some of the original fixtures, but still had a small whirlpool tub.
The location in Lancaster County allowed us to explore more of the area. It's only a few minutes from a major highway that got us quickly up to Hershey and Harrisburg or down to the Lancaster outlets and Amish country.
Each morning we enjoyed the substantial breakfast the inn provides. It was delicious and hearty enough that we were able to skip lunch. After a busy day out and about, we would come back to the inn and take a dip in the pool and then decide where we wanted to go for drinks and dinner. We found we could walk to several different restaurants close by, have our dinner and come back and relax on the porch with the other guests. All in all, it makes for a great little vacation, and the Olde Square Inn is a wonderful addition to our annual trip.
