back in April, Old Charm was selected to be a part of the Spotlight on Business at the local Chamber of Commerence.
and, since April passed quicker than the speed of sound, i missed it. oops. better late than never i guess. so for those of you new to ‘inspired by charm’ or to my old friends, here’s a little write-up about Old Charm. (it’s a bit self promoting, so i apologize for that, but i guess that’s what you have to do every once and a while.) enjoy!
Since Old Charm opened its door in 1993, as the first bed and breakfast in St. Marys, it has become more than a place to rest your head. Built on comfort, kindness, delicious food and an ‘at home’ feel, Old Charm is a haven for those visiting St. Marys or just passing through. In 2008, with even more to offer, Old Charm opened a gift shoppe. Featuring home décor and beautiful things to give, it’s hard to walk out of the shoppe uninspired or empty handed. Old Charm is also home to A Basket of St. Marys. Featuring the talents and creations of local residents, A Basket of St. Marys makes a wonderful gift showing the pride of our town.
Over the years Old Charm has made many friends, its guests. These friends have left comments about their stay that describe Old Charm best…
“…there is joy here.”
Old Charm provides a comfortable, relaxing and welcoming stay for all who enter its doors. Private baths, comfortable beds, televisions, wireless internet access and a gourmet breakfast provide a level of comfort and ‘hominess’ that is unmatched by any hotel. Old Charm will certainly become your home away from home.
“you have mastered the arts of breakfastry, hospitality and most excellent innkeepery.”
In 2008, Old Charm was purchased from its original owners. The current Innkeeper, Michael Wurm, has put his heart and soul into making Old Charm his own. A graduate from Penn State’s Hospitality Program, Michael is using his experience working at a luxury hotel in Philadelphia to create a unique and comfortable experience for his guests.
“cozy, inviting, warm, with delicious, eclectic, charming items at every turn.”
The Gift Shoppe has been designed to provide a unique and eclectic shopping experience for the guests of Old Charm and the community. A distinct style has been created by blending traditional and contemporary with splashes of vintage and modern. You’ll find candles, chocolates, jewelry, beautiful home accessories, and so much more!
“we have been delighted and charmed.”
A Basket of St. Marys is a true collection of the talents within our community. Featuring local chocolates, chips and garden salsa, seasoned peanuts, maple syrup, jams and jellies, candles, honey and much more; receiving a basket feels like an honor. Baskets can be customized for any occasion and price range. Items from our Gift Shoppe can also be added to create a truly one-of-a-kind gift.
