The Blue Bell Inn Experience

Our doors have been welcoming guests since 1743. Originally named the “White House,” the home provided lodging for traveling hunters. During the American Revolutionary War, even George Washington himself rested his head at the Inn. In 1796, the infamous blue bell was added over the property, reopened as a restaurant and the rest is history. With the help of professional management, extensive renovations and the addition of a delicious modern American menu, you now have The Blue Bell Inn as you know it today
