Looking for a truly unique experience in beautiful south-central Pennsylvania? A nature-lovers paradise awaits you at the Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn. Located on 4 acres of mixed hardwood forest in the Conewago Mountains, the Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn has a friendly, romantic, eccentric yet laid-back atmosphere in a relaxed, natural setting where you can really get away from it all. From mid-June to mid-July, our gardens are filled with over 400 varieties of daylilies; one of the largest daylily collections on the East Coast. Oaks, hemlocks, beeches, poplars, ferns, hostas, rhododendron, azaleas, raspberries, blueberries and perennial flowers abound. Your host, Jeff Lebo, has been a collector of antique and vintage brewery advertising for 35 years. Nearly every inch of wall space is filled with vintage beer cans from around the world, antique bottles, lithos, neons, porcelain signs and every imaginable type of breweriana from days gone by. The collection is the largest of its kind in the world, and has been featured in many magazines and television shows, including the History Channel, the Travel Channel and the Home and Garden Channel.
Stroll through our grounds, curl up with a book or sip an ice-cold drink on the porch. Listen to the symphony of nature; pileated woodpeckers, hawks, songbirds, cicadas, tree frogs and owls. In the winter, warm yourself in front of the wood stove in our cozy, rustic lounge. We're just one hour north of Baltimore, 1 1/2 hours west of Philadelphia, and 3 hours southwest of New York City. We are located midway between Harrisburg and York, just one mile from Interstate 83 and 7 miles south of the Pennsylvania Turnpike (Route 76).
We offer five private bedrooms, each with a double bed. Each room is priced at $75 per night, single or double. (To book individual rooms rather than the entire inn, see our other listings for the Pacific Room, German Room, Swedish Room, African Room and American Room.) For more privacy or for larger groups, you may choose to rent the entire inn for $379 per night. Included in your room rate is the use of our facilities: two bathrooms (one upstairs, one downstairs, each with a toilet, tub and shower), a large (16' x 50') upstairs lounge with board games, sofas and chairs, a large (18' x 36') downstairs common room with a small library, four sofas, wood stove and dining table that seats ten, and a large kitchen with a table that seats six, refrigerator, microwave, stove, oven and dishwasher. Outside we have a side porch with a glider and rocking chair, as well as a patio with a dining table that seats four. We use green, eco-friendly and locally-made products in our facility. There is plenty of free parking. Need a place for your event? Our upstairs lounge can accomodate groups of up to 25.
There are lots of things to do here! We are conveniently located just minutes from many local attractions:
We are just 12 minutes from Roundtop Mountain Resort where you'll enjoy great skiing in the winter.

Roundtop boasts the best variety of ziplines in the mid-Atlantic region.
We're also just 10 minutes from the beautiful Gifford Pinchot State Park, with miles of trails for birdwatching and hiking, and a large lake for fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking.
Speaking of fishing, canoeing and kayaking, we are within 10 minutes of five amazingly beautiful waterways: the Susquehanna River, Conewago Creek, Yellow Breeches Creek, Bennett Run and the Conodoguinet Creek. We have kayaks available for rental. You may also arrange for us to take you on a kayaking excursion or guided hike. Half-day trips start at just $75/person for groups of six or more. Call or email us for rates and reservations for your group.

The largest rookery on the Susquehanna is also nearby. Here you can often see thousands of nesting blue herons, egrets, green herons and cormorants.
Recreational boaters, waterskiers and jet-skiers will be happy to know that the marina and boat ramp at Goldsboro is just eight minutes away. We are also close to the world-famous Appalachian Trail, for those looking to get off the beaten path. Mountain bikers and cyclists will love our nearby rail-trails and scenic, back-country roads.

Susquehanna Speedway operates mostly in the summer months and depending on the wind, it can be quite loud here at Brewhouse Mountain. You may want to check their racing schedule before booking. There is also a Saturday and Sunday morning flea market and farmers market across the road from Susquehanna Speedway.
We are just 15 minutes from the city of York, which was the country's first capital. York also has good restaurants and a charming farmers market, which is open Thursdays and Saturdays. We're also just 12 minutes from Pennsylvania's capital city of Harrisburg, with wonderful nightlife, live music, a variety of great restaurants, its famous Capital rotunda and its world class Civil War Museum.

The Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn truly offers something for everyone. We look forward to seeing you soon!
The Brewhouse exceeded expectations and was a wonderful place to visit with friends. Definitely a unique and pleasurable experience. Jeff and his wife were very easy to communicate with and were available if we needed anything.
We had a great time, and the setting is beautiful. The house itself is a bit too hot to stay in during the hottest days of summer, but the host provided ample fans to get the air circulating. The house is a piece of artwork, a really amazing collection of cans and paraphernalia that is a total trip to explore. But the building is quite musty and could use an industrial strength dehumidifier.
We stayed at Jeff's place with our two daughters. When you are looking for a different experience, close to the East Coast cities; this is an interesting option with good opportunities for outdoor activities.
We needed a quiet retreat from work and children, and the Brewhouse served perfectly. Very quiet, very beautiful. It was like having our own cabin in the woods. We also enjoyed a romantic dinner in the pretty little city of York. A really lovely retreat!
We loved staying at the Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn in the beautiful woods of central PA. The Inn is could almost be a tourist attraction in itself, housing a facinating collection of beer cans. Everything we
As clean and comfortable. Jeff and his wife Laurie were perfect hosts. I recommend to future guests to bring some good beer for yourself, (hopefully in interesting cans to donate to Jeff), because your surroundings will probably make you thirsty! ; )
Jeff and his wife were awesome and have a very cool place.
They had everything ready for us when we showed up a in the evening. From the moment we drove up and saw their sign showing which way to turn, we had an easy experience getting into the place.
Their place is very cool, with, well thousands of beer cans! I couldn't stop looking at all the different cans everywhere. We had the house to ourselves so it was very quite and peaceful. We slept like babies all night.
I wish I could of met Jeff and his wife, they seemed like cool people with interesting stories to tell. We had to leave in a hurry so we didn't get the chance to talk to them.
Over all, I highly recommend the place.
Jeff made staying at the Brewhouse fun and easy.
The Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn is a beautiful and truly unique retreat, just minutes from the interstate highway. Nestled in the central Pennsylvania woods, the inn is part nature retreat, part beer can museum. The beer can portion is the passion of Jeff Lebo, who owns and operates the inn with his wife, Lauri. The walls are lined floor to ceiling with incredibly colorful and often whimsical beer cans. Space not covered in cans is decorated with beer-related advertising items and some country kitsch. It’s all done with a decorator’s eye and a wink of humor.
The inn also features hardwood floors, high ceilings and a fire stove. It has a very warm and relaxing feel. There are two great rooms for entertaining, and one features a bar. The bedrooms are organized according to geographical origins of the beer cans in the room, and each has a measure of coordinating décor. It’s fun to explore this seemingly unending collection.
Outside, the inn grounds are equally intriguing. We visited in late June, in time to see a huge variety of day lilies in bloom in a garden to the side of the house. The garden features a sitting area in front of a permanent stage, which seemed like a great location for a small wedding. An adjacent walkway behind the house was filled with red flowers, and we were treated to two hummingbirds whirring busily among them. We also enjoyed a walk on the path through the beautifully wooded lot. It was delightful to enjoy our morning coffee with the chirping of birds and the breeze in the tree tops.
There’s lots to do in the area, as well. The Lebos have a flotilla of kayaks for use in local creeks, and the property sits practically in the shadow of Roundtop Mountain Resort (skiing in winter, ziplining and paintball in summer). A nearby state park offers hiking, fishing and swimming. The country roads seemed like a great place for a challenging bike ride, too.
If you’re looking for a peaceful getaway to a place like no other, the Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn is great choice.
we had a lovely time sitting on their shaded porch watching fireflies, and their sweet butterscotch chickens roam about the yard... very relaxing----and jeff's can collection is amazing.
We stayed at Brewhouse Mountain Eco Inn and enjoyed every minute. It was peaceful and a unique experience and our host Jeff Lebo was a pleasure to meet. The house was pristine and had every thing we needed. We would love to return again!
