The Augustus T. Zevely Inn Bed and Breakfast
Table Of Contents
The only lodging in the Old Salem Historic District, the Augustus T. Zevely Inn Bed and Breakfast, on the National Historic Register, has been meticulously and accurately restored to its mid-19th century appearance. Our guests are not just visitors; they are part of a living 18th century restored Moravian town, which maintains the spirit, character and ambiance of its Moravian founders.
A Gracious Welcome...The warm and inviting Moravian atmosphere found in Old Salem continues as one enters the Zevely Inn - through the use of Old Salem Collection furniture, fixtures, accessories, tiles, floor coverings, and window treatments. Many rooms have been closely returned to their original appearance or sensitively adapted as guestrooms.
Inside, a corner fireplace, characteristic of Moravian architecture, graces the parlor where in winter, a wood fire burns. A formal dining room off the parlor can be enjoyed by guests who prefer this setting to the parlor.
Augustus T. Zevely was a doctor. His office, which had a separate entrance, was across the hall from the parlor. It is now used as a breakfast room where a continental plus breakfast is served during the week and a full breakfast on weekends; fresh fruit, fruit juices, and Moravian baked goods are always offered at breakfast. Off the breakfast room is a wet bar where guests can help themselves to ice, ice water, tea, and coffee. A two-story ell-shaped porch at the rear of the inn offers a relaxing place to end the day in Old Salem.
