A historic Lancaster County hotel will go on the auction block in September.

Lebanon County auctioneer Fortna Auctioneers and Marketing Group of Annville Township will preside over the Sept. 14 auction of the Inn at Twin Linden in Caernarvon Township, with a public walk-through inspection for interested buyers Aug. 25.

Robert Bering, and auctioneer and Realtor with Fortna, said he couldn’t say how much the property is expected to sell for, but he said he expects about 25 to 50 buyers to be interested.

He said he’s heard from buyers locally and nationally interested in bidding on the property.

“We have sold a number of bed and breakfasts locally, but this one is unique due to the location in the heart of Lancaster County,” Bering said. “This property has been very well maintained and is thriving in the industry.”

The bed and breakfast, owned by Norm and Sue Kuestner since 2005, is listed with six guest rooms, two more deluxe rooms and private bathrooms. It also features a fully equipped kitchen and restaurant license.

According to Fortna, the building became a bed and breakfast in 1987. It was built as a private residence in 1840, converted to a senior home in 1955 and was used as rental apartments in the 1960s through 1987.

Fortna has sold historic hotel properties in the midstate before, including the Fairfield Inn of Gettysburg, the Londonderry Inn in Campbelltown and, in June, the Cornwall Inn in Cornwall.
