Welcome to the Alden House Bed and Breakfast, a fine example of In-town elegance. Our 1850 brick Federal style house is located in the center of the Lititz Historical District within strolling distance of local attractions, unique shops, and fine dining. We have the perfect location to enjoy the ambiance of the historic town of Lititz while being centrally located in Lancaster County, PA.
The Alden House has been professionally restored with modern amenities while retaining all its original charm. The high ceilings, striking staircase, cozy dining room, and comfortable rooms and suites all remind guests of another era, a time when the pace was just a little slower.

Breakfast at the Alden House is an experience to remember. Each morning guests are treated to a full breakfast including beverages, fruit, main entree, meats, breads or muffins, and always dessert (an Alden House specialty). Entrees might include omlettes, quiche, ebleskivers, or our signature ploys (French Acadian crepes) with Wilbur cinnamon drops. Desserts vary from cakes, such as apple cake, to delectable puddings, lemon cake pudding, to homemade Danish and breakfast cheesecake. (We try to accommodate special dietary needs, including gluten-free items, with advance notice.)
For the convenience of our guests, there are snacks and beverages always available (don’t miss the Wilbur Buds in the candy dish near the front door). There is ample off-street guest parking behind the inn. Relax on one of our three porches; linger by the garden and fishpond (be sure to ask about our resident heron); and simply enjoy the good life. The Alden House brings you old-fashioned hospitality with all of the amenities one expects in today’s world. Come for a night, come for a week, come and be our guest!
It might surprise you to know that Lititz is home to our country’s oldest pretzel bakery, the nation’s oldest girls’ boarding school, and the oldest 4th of July celebration in the U.S. A visit to Lititz is truly a step back in time—the streets and town reminiscent of hometowns of yesteryear.
Lancaster County is a smorgasbord of flavors. There are restaurants nearby to satisfy all tastes. Choose from fine dining to casual menus, family-style service to ethnic specialties. With prior arrangement, we can arrange a dinner in an Amish home. We frequently recommend dining at Haydn Zug’s, Reflections, Lily’s on Main and, within walking distance, General Sutter’s 1764 Restaurant. Also, just a few steps from our front door, delicious chocolate delectables at the Chocolate Cafe. Whatever your dining choice, we are happy to make reservations for you or assist you with additional recommendations. Of course, advance notice helps ensure your dining preference.
