  • Meet The Innkeepers

    Heidi and John Lucier

    We are Heidi and John Lucier and we purchased the Lititz House Bed & Breakfast on December 14, 2007. After two years of searching properties as far north as Southwest Harbor Maine, it is the vibrant town of Lititz, and this beautiful B&B that quickly became our focus.

    We grew up together in Warwick, Rhode Island, but we moved to Lititz from Gloucester, Virginia. John retired from active duty with the US Coast Guard after 24 years of service and Heidi comes from a middle school science teacher background. Our oldest daughter Jennifer lives in Virginia with her husband Geoff and in 2009, we were blessed with our first grandchild... Olivia.  Lauren, our youngest, is a 2nd Grade teacher, also in Virginia, and is engaged with a wedding planned for spring of 2012! With two daughters still living in Virginia, and our families in Rhode Island, Lititz is the perfect place to call home. And right at home with us is our two dogs! Layla, an eleven year old Lab mix and Sally, a five year old Beagle. Both dogs have become acclimated with their "innkeeper lifestyle" and look forward to just saying "hi" and letting you have your space as they reside in private owners spaces. (Sorry, but we are unable to accommodate guest dogs at this time.)

    We both love this area and are very excited about this beautiful B&B in this charming town. We have been incredibly blessed to have met so many wonderful people in such a short time.

    Come and make yourself at home...in our home!

  • Area Information

    LITITZ Sign
    LITITZ - The Gem of Lancaster County!

    Lititz is nestled in the heart land of rich farming country in Lancaster County,  just 7 miles north of Lancaster city center. The earliest settlers were Swiss-German Mennonites in 1710 who fled religious persecution in Europe. They were quickly followed by the Moravians and Amish. For its first century, the town remained a closed community, admitting only members of the small Protestant sect of Moravians. Large colonial buildings to house members of the religion were built around a spacious square. By the mid 1750's, only ten years after the arrival of its first settlers, Lititz was an established village.  Settlers had built old stone mills, wooden covered bridges and log homes. Many 18th Century town buildings have been wonderfully restored and can be enjoyed as you walk through town. Numerous local farms have been owned perpetually by the same families for 200 years. Be sure to stop by The Lititiz  Museum to discover more about this wonderful town.

    No other small community in the United States hosts the quantity and diversity of events: antique, art and craft shows, ArtWalk and Chocolate Walk, Summer Shopping Strolls, community park band shell performances, 4th of July festivals, historical re-ennactments, antique car shows and parades and more!   For more detailed information about these events, go to www.shoplititz.com
