About this Room
My one room overlooking the city street, is beautifully furnished in antique décor. The spacious shower in it’s private bath, central air and cable TV offer a great space for a quiet relaxing weekend getaway. It comfortably fits 2 with a cannonball queen size bed.
My home began as a public house and tavern in 1838. It later transformed into a general mercantile store and then into a beautiful Bed & Breakfast. It now is my residence with many rooms to enjoy. The West Room as it is known is decorated in gold and burgundy with a beautiful cannonball bed and spacious sitting area.
Guests are allowed to enjoy and relax in the garden and shop The Emporium Antique & Craft Co-op on the first floor.
Interaction with Guests
I am available most of the time to visit and give directions and advise on activities and events in the area. Also I work very closely with our local Visitor Bureau and others to get the most for your sightseeing and shopping pleasure.
Our town is a sleepy German village in the central Susquehanna River Valley of Pennsylvania. Sitting along Penns Creek, it is a dividing line between Union and Snyder counties. With a population of just over 800 it was the original county seat of Union County. The courthouse building still stands in the town square and houses the Courthouse Museum. Our area is rich in history with museums, covered bridges, and Amish farms with many types of roadside stands through out the county. Wineries & antique shoppes also dot the area not to mention the many festivals & fairs we are noted for. Also close by are Penn State, Bucknell, and Susquehanna Universities. For a better look at our area check with the Susquehanna Visitors Bureau.
Our on and off street parking is very convenient. Car rentals are available at the local airports. Taxi service can also be found in near by towns.
Other Things to Note
The Emporium (our in house antique, craft, & learning center) offers classes from time to time and staying with us makes a great time to take a class or two. On the 4th weekend in August the town celebrates New Berlin Days. Central Pennsylvania’s largest street one day street festival features purveyors of fine antiques, arts, and crafts. Approximately 50 antique dealers and 50 craft venders will be setup along Market, Vine, and Plum Streets. Traditional Pennsylvania German and American festival food and drink is available on one the streets and at the adjoining fireman’s field. Chicken BBQ halves and dinners are offered at the Social Hall. Entertainment plus an open house at The New Berlin Heritage Museum (the original 1815 Union County Court House) makes for a great day. A quilt raffle and silent action are also held in the afternoon.
Smoking is not allowed indoors however outside the building it is allowed. Also please remember to be respectful of other guests staying at the Samuel Aurand House.
