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.”

The Penguin Hotel is open Monday and Tuesday 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Wednesday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Thursday 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., and closed on Sunday. To find out more, call 717-733-8142 or check the website:
