"Thank-you very much for our stay in your beautiful home- we are so glad we found it! It was exciting to think that we were sitting in a room where once people may have discussed the Declaration of Independence.  We appreciate all your hard work and feel inspired by your vision.

"Forgotten Seasons of Lititz"

After shopping in historic downtown Lititz, having seen a show at one of the local theaters, visited the museums, and ate at one of many fine restaurants, then treat yourself to a night at Jacob Huber's Tavern, one of the oldest remaining houses found in Lititz. now known as Forgotten Seasons Bed & Breakfast.

This is where it all started.... the vision of the Moravian Church in Lititz and the town itself was shared here in this very house by Count Zinzendorf himself over 270 years ago.

Built circa 1735, the Forgotten Seasons Bed & Breakfast was originally known as the Jacob Huberís Tavern, a very well known stopping point along the trading route that connected the seaports to the frontier. Count Zinzendorf stayed here in December, 1742 and talked to the local farmers, sharing his vision of establishing a mission to minister to the Native Indians in the local area. As a result, George Kline passed his farm on to the Moravian Community for this purpose. This is now Main Street in Lititz.

Spend a night in History. Touch the Ram's Head Hinges that were imported from Germany in the 1700's, see the 1810 art work on original plaster, walk the 200 year old stairway to your guest room, enjoy your breakfast by candle light in the Dining Room that has the 200 year old corner cupboard with its original glass.

The owners have documented the rich history that took place inside these walls. In the B & B Library are many books relating to local history, Moravian history and maps detailing the migration of the early settlers and to the development of Lancaster County. Extensive genealogy has been made of the families that lived within these walls...the Hubers, Erbs, Snyders, Hersheys, Beckers, and Groffs. Go to "History" on this page, then "Research Materials" to get a listing of what books are available for your use in the B & B Library.

Want to wind down and relax? Adjacent to the Bed & Breakfast is the Warwick Township Linear Park. This one mile long award winning walking and biking trail is an excellent place to do just that. It goes into the quiet countryside in one direction and past the ball fields and duck pond into Lititz in the other.                        

Feel what three centuries are all about. Make your stay to Lancaster County a memorable one with an overnight visit to a house that helped to make this region what it is today. You'll leave refreshed and with a deep appreciation of how this country developed.
