A Chance To Own A Piece MoCo History: The Olney Inn

A Historic Bed & Breakfast Is On The Market!

We are proud to be representing the seller of this historic home in Olney, MD. Currently being operated as the Olney Inn Bed and Breakfast, this home has been lovingly restored and cared for throughout the decades. This rare gem may be operated as a bed and breakfast with an established following, or kept all to yourself!

The History:

Combining modern conveniences with a rich history, Headwaters Farm was frequented by such notables as Winston Churchill, FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt. Home to Harold L. Ickes, US Secretary of the Interior, from 1933-1946, Ickes was a strong proponent of fair housing, civil rights and abolishing the detention of Japanese Americans and played a major role in creating programs that helped end the Great Depression.

The Rooms:

With such a rich history, it’s no wonder the guest rooms provide a history of their own. 

The FDR Room is the very same room that accommodated the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt. 

The main house is big on space with over 6,400, above-grade, finished square feet with five expansive bedrooms, five full bathrooms, a half bathroom, a large light-filled sunroom, a well-equipped kitchen, stately living room and dining hall that can accommodate well over twelve people. The unfinished third level offers potential for even more living space.

Three additional spacious and inviting rooms, The Eleanor, The Churchill (featured above), and the Fala (below), encompass the charm and beauty this unique property has to offer. 

Looking for an even more private bed and breakfast experience? The Carriage house (below) provides a private, separate building with three bedrooms, a living room, a full kitchen, and a laundry unit. 

The Amenities:

No bed and breakfast would be complete without amenities! This inn’s stunning courtyard features an immense pool and a year-round hot tub as well as an expansive array of outdoor lounging areas including front and back porches and outdoor private seating on the two-acre property.
