The Penguin Hotel has a private room available that accommodates up to 20 people. It’s perfect for showers, birthday parties, anniversaries and other events. However, the room is not handicap accessible.

The Penguin Hotel is located at 55 East Church Road in Stevens, where the historic 1800s tavern was once known as the Mt. Airy Hotel. As the story goes, the owner renamed it as the Penguin after someone commented that only penguins would live in the snowy wintry wonderland. There are penguins everywhere, including the friendly white and black penguins that stand outside and welcome visitors with a sign that says, “Come in as strangers, leave as friends.”

It may not seem like spring, with the recent snow, but spring will surely be arriving soon. There’s no better place to enjoy the beauty of springtime, as the trees turn green and flowers begin to bloom. To get to the Penguin Hotel, take Route 322 to Durlach Road in Clay Township (at Horst Auction), and drive two miles just past the Durlach/Mt. Airy Fire Company.

The Penguin Hotel is open every day at 11 a.m.  Sunday the kitchen is open noon – 6:00 p.m. and starting in April they will be open until 10:00 p.m. on Sundays. They will be closed on Easter Sunday. To find out more, call 717-733-8142 or check the website;
