Built in 1869, on the corner of East Oregon Road and Creek Road in Lititz, stands one of the most distinctive farmhouses in the area. Not much has been uncovered about the history of this sturdy structure, but it is known that the original owners were Grabill and Anna Bear. The property is now owned by Todd and Mary Bolinger and has been restored to its original glory as a bed and breakfast known as Olde Oregon Farmhouse.
In 2015, Todd and Mary bought this this local landmark and began the huge undertaking of restoring it, with the goal to create a bed and breakfast that reflects the late 1800’s era. Using historical reproductions and period furnishings, they were able to bring a homey, country feel to the property while mainting the integrity of its past. Work on the home continues today.
The bed and breakfast began to welcome guests in the fall of 2017. With the draw of the Lancaster countryside, the Bolingers have hosted guests from all over the country and have even had international guests from the Netherlands. It’s very apparent that word has quickly spread that visiting the Old Oregon Farmhouse is like taking a nostalgic trip back in time. And with the unapparelled hospitality of Mary and Todd, it is an experience like no other. Rather than feeling like you are visiting a random bed and breakfast, it’s like visiting family.
