    Beautiful B&B: Own This Inn in ‘America’s Coolest Small Town’ for $550K

    If you’re secretly nursing dreams of becoming an innkeeper, we’ve found the ideal spot for you to realize your dream.

    Most opportunities to become an innkeeper fall in the million-dollar range, which makes this rural Pennsylvania inn—dating to the 1700s—a bangin’ bargain at $549,900.

    Currently operating as The Avenue Guesthouse & Gallery, the bed-and-breakfast is located in Lititz, about 80 miles west of Philadelphia and 6 miles north of Lancaster.

    Once dubbed “America’s coolest small town” by Budget Travel, Lititz has a population of 18,000. Art galleries, cute cafes, and the country’s oldest commercial pretzel factory dot the community. A walkway easily connects the inn with the city’s quaint downtown.

    This five-bedroom, five-bath stone inn was built by local members of the Moravian faith, and the town itself was settled by Moravians in the 1700s. The home was built in 1725, and the town was founded in 1749. In fact, the man who founded Lititz (Count Zinzendorf) once preached at the home, according to a plaque in front of the inn.

    Meticulous renovations in recent years have retained original woodwork, built-ins, and exposed beams. The beautiful hardwood floors have also been refinished. All of the bathrooms were recently updated, and two new water heaters were installed. There’s also a new roof and new well.

    In addition to the five bedroom suites, there’s a formal dining room, casual dining room, and first-floor living room. These could all be used as communal spaces for overnight guests. A kitchen with a breakfast bar makes whipping up breakfast for guests a breeze.

    The extensive and thoughtful updates mean the next owner can focus on perfecting frittata and muffin recipes—not maintenance!

    The inn is listed with Mark Thudium of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Homesale Realty.
