Antique stores in our beautiful small town of Annville. Fun to go exploring!
Many other antique stores in Lancaster, Lititz, Harrisburg, Lebanon, and then there are all the….AUCTIONS! In fact, one major auction house is—like Annville Inn—located in the countryside, and not even three miles from Annville Inn. Their main auctions are Tuesday nights.
Lebanon Valley College parents stay at Annville Inn, and then go out with their student to the outlets and other shopping in order to get the dorm room and wardrobe perfectly set up.
Visitors come from all around us to—once settled in at our Inn—get out and do some shopping. One very special guest comes here annually from California. She is an expert knitter. She drives up into the mountains behind us to alpaca farms and other sources for wool, which she uses to create masterpieces. We are fortunate! She always knits something for us, thanks Beverly!
