Lancaster County Businesses Love Veterans!

October 25, 2011

…and they’re willing to prove it! On November 10th, many Lancaster County businesses will be opening their doors to veterans, offering goods and services for free or at considerable discounts. They have been invited to participate in a special nationwide program by the association of innkeepers, Authentic Bed & Breakfasts of Lancaster County (ABBLC), of which the Historic Smithton Inn is a member.

The B&Bs for Vets Program:
The Historic Smithton will join hundreds of inns and B&Bs throughout the U.S. and Canada in honoring active and retired veterans with complimentary rooms in recognition of Veteran’s Day (all 7 rooms have been reserved, 2 by guests we hosted last year!). The campaign, called B&Bs for Vets, enlists inns and B&Bs to open their doors with complimentary stays for vets on November 10, 2011 so they can wake up on Veteran’s Day to a wonderful breakfast after a great night’s sleep in a B&B. To date, Pennsylvania has more B&B’s participating in this program than any other state.

The Expanded Lancaster County Program:
What’s truly exciting is that the Authentic Bed and Breakfasts of Lancaster County will offer not only a free room for the night, but has organized cooperation from MANY other businesses in the County who are offering exclusive discounts for Vets. It’s because of the B&B owners’ and the Association’s strong relationship with local business owners that this expanded program came about. 

Even though all the Smithton’s rooms are booked on Thursday the 10th, we do still have rooms available over Veterans Day weekend (November 11 – 12) that we’re offering at a discount to Vets!  Give us a call or book the room online and be sure to let us know you’re a Vet so we can apply the discount.
