About the Property

Private suites in a historic general store in Lancaster County.

Mussers’ Historic Country Suites is located in the former New Providence General Store in the village of New Providence. The store dates back to the early 1800s and was built in the federal style.

We offer two suites: The Storekeepers’ Quarters (vrbo listing 627211) and the Old Post Office. Both suites contain bright, great rooms, full kitchens with sitting and dining areas. Especially popular is the bedroom of the Old Post Office suite that features beds on three different levels, including a king-size lofted bed that overlooks a Lancaster County farm scape. Each suite offers a private bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate entrances with keys.
We are located just a few miles from Strasburg and within several minutes drive of most Lancaster County and Pennsylvania Dutch country attractions. The outlet malls, Sight and Sound Theater, and the Strasburg Railroad, for example, are all a short, 10-15 minute drive away.

Our historic country suites are open year ’round.

Although our suites are spacious and can accommodate a number of people they are popular stays for one or two persons. Our prices are set up to make our suites affordable for all who come. We have many guests who rent both suites for larger groups of families and friends and use the large common area to meet and socialize.

Children are very welcome as well as those who may have walking limitations. However we do have small stairways, steps and lofts that guests and parents should take into consideration when booking with Mussers’ Historic Country Suites. Because of our concern for other guests, we are sorry that we cannot accommodate pets or smoking in our suites.

Sleeps 1 to 5 people

There are enough beds to accommodate 5 people. In the sleeping room of the suite there are different levels. At the room’s highest level a king-sized bed has been built into the wall. A small window from the bed overlooks the flower garden, barn and Amish fields beyond. A twin-sized day bed in the middle loft sleeps one and on the lowest level is a full-sized oak bed that’s been in the family for a long time.

Has 2 rooms

A “sleeping room” and a large dine-in full kitchen/living area. This suite adjoins our spacious common area-the general store/library.

Sheets, bedspreads, blankets, towels

We provide the linens for your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: The Mussers have been restoring their home and having bonfires and turning ice cream on the property since 1986. When they aren’t hosting guests, Rob works as an attorney; Barb gardens, quilts and thinks up adventures for herself and grandchildren, Lou and Finn. Their children are grown but 56 Main Street is still home to Dosie, their Goldendoodle who keeps things lively. When Rob and Barb take a vacation it is either to the log house in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania or on hiking vacations to places like Norway and Patagonia where you can drink water out of streams and breathe the cleanest air in the world. They visited Croatia and Turkey on their last hiking vacation.

Why the Owner Chose New Providence, PA, USA:
After raising & homeschooling three kids, Barb focused her attention on creating a green, sustainable and organic retreat for guests in the historic home she and her husband, Rob, restored themselves over several decades.
