Reviewed 8 April 2007

Greeted at the door by our friendly host, Fran, we experienced a quick check in and tour of the room. The Enchanted Cottage was fantastic and even better than the photos. Very private, great parking, comfortable bed, clean and tastefully appointed interior. The breakfast was timely and varied and really too much for us to consume. The grounds were impeccable and the area very convenient and friendly to a neighborhood walk and many nearby restaurants. In all ,a grand experience and we cannot wait to go back. Tom & Patti

We fell in love with The Olde Square Inn (and the endearing hosts) about 17 years ago when we stayed for just one night. Now we plan a six night visit once or twice a year! The atmosphere is inviting and welcoming, like "going home". The rooms are immaculate (we've stayed in EVERY room!), so cozy with nice linens, charming furniture/decor and gas fireplaces.
The breakfasts are AWESOME - tons of excellent food, lots of variety, something to suit everyone's tastebuds. It's always interesting to chat with people from different states and walks of life at the family-style breakfast. The Inn is elegantly decorated and a short distance from Hershey, downtown Lancaster and Amish points of interest. Fran and Dave will be happy to provide maps, directions and menus to get you going. Mount Joy is a quaint town with some lovely shops and restaurants and convenient to everything. A lovely spot to spend a few days or a week! Every season is beautiful at The Olde Square Inn - WE LOVE IT!

My wife and I stayed in the Olde Square Inn's Enchanted Cottage for two nights in February 2006. The Cottage itself was very nice with a great whirlpool tub, comfortable bed, gorgeous 3-sided fireplace, and large bathroom and shower. It was also nice to have a small kitchenette, including a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker with great gourmet coffee provided.
We had breakfast delivered to the cottage, and while it wasn't anything extraordinary (waffles, sausage, etc.), it was still very good.
We also found the Inn's hosts to be very friendly and helpful.
As for Mount Joy itself, its a nice little town, and we especially enjoyed our dinner in the Catacombs at Bube's Brewery. The atmosphere was very unique and the food was delicious.

Stayed here recently for a weekend. The inn is lovely, warm, clean, quaint and offers a yummy breakfast. We stayed in the Royal Room, very nice and the bed was comfortable and not worn in the least. Sheets were crisp and clean. Bathroom was bright, large but shower was narrow. Even a nice quiet pool in back yard. Host/hostess were friendly and inviting. This was not a high end, full service B&B. However was excellent for value and all other areas.
