We’ve launched a workcation, complete with happy hour

August 25, 2020

wine and fire pit Forget the watercooler chatter, the Historic Smithton Inn is offering hard working couples (and singletons) a workcation where they may choose their very own happy hour, order breakfast to coincide with their Zoom meeting, and swap their home office for an immersive high-tech experience set amid 18th Century charm.   The new WIFI & WINE package is on the heels of our newly rewired internet service, where we went room-by-room hardwiring individual connections and adding signal boosters, making the internet incredibly fast, efficient and reliable. (THANKS to Residential Media Systems in Lancaster!)   Like all local properties, our inn was forced to close at the height of the pandemic, so we took that time to reconfigure the inn’s internet access and speed, a daunting task since our thick, 18-inch stone walls are a trademark to a historic home from the 1700s. We also upgraded all rooms to smart TVs, enabling guests to log in to their streaming services on large screens from the comfort of their rooms.   We’re an unusual find! Our inn is undoubtedly Old-World charm and sits on the register of local historic places. While here you’ll see and hear Amish buggies trotting nearby and yet, we are a destination for the tech savvy, and have our own Tesla electric vehicle charging station. We’re also located around the corner from a 20-block downtown area with many al fresco dining options, various independent shops, and craft breweries – an ideal destination for those who want to get away but need to work – and also want to play.   The WIFI & WINE package includes a complimentary glass of wine for each guest to enjoy during their own designated happy hour. The wine bar is open from 4-8 pm for overnight guests or by request for earlier or later hours. Guests may come, sit, and enjoy their wine there or take it to sip in the garden. We also offer the option of an ‘after work drink,’ if you’d rather savor your wine while catching up in the evening at the fire pit under the stars.   The WIFI & WINE package includes:
  • Overnight stay at the Historic Smithton Inn
  • Full breakfast each morning
  • Use of the firepit and gardens
  • High speed wireless internet
  • Streaming-enabled in-room Smart-TVs
  • Complimentary onsite parking
  • 1-glass of wine (choose from a dozen wines or select between two wine slushies)
  • Case pricing on any bottle purchases, to repeat part of the experience upon return home
  Package costs start at $159/night plus taxes and gratuities, and vary based on room selection and length of stay. This package runs through October 31, 2020. Please enter code WINE when making your reservation.
