Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Born and raised in Berks County. Met on a blind date. Married 42 years and have 5 children and 4 grandchildren. Retired We love spending time with the family, traveling, and meeting new people. Though we've traveled through the US and abroad, we always love coming home. Home is where our heart is!

Why the Owner Chose Hamburg:
My fondest childhood memories were spending weekends and school vacations with my grandparents here at the Loos Homestead. It's a wonderful place for children to explore and grownups to relax. August 2015 marked the 250th anniversary of the homestead,

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The homestead still has the original hardwood floors and hand cut beams, molding, deep 18 inch windowsills and pegs on the wall where ancestors hung their clothes. Lot's of love and care have gone into refurbishing the homestead without compromising it's integrity. A beautiful view may be experienced from any window. Wildlife, such as deer, fox, and eagles can be seen on any given day. We love to sit on the porch with a cup of coffee and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
