About The Golden Oak Inn

The Golden Oak Inn ParlorThe Golden Oak Inn Bed & Breakfast was originally built in 1901 for the prominent Van Dyne family.  The original hardwood staircase and woodwork throughout the grand Victorian residence will take your breath away.  The lavishly decorated dining room stenciling, which is also original to the house, was later painstakingly embellished in gold.  Antiques tastefully enhance the alluring atmosphere.  Over the years, the home has been updated to include all the modern amenities you would expect in a home, but still maintaining the original integrity and charm.  Take a walk back in time as you view the ornate architecture both inside and out.  The Golden Oak Inn is conveniently located two blocks south of the center of Troy.  Troy is a quaint town with many shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Dine in style with candlelight and soft music.  The 3 course breakfast served on fine antique china is one of the many highlights of our guests’ stay at The Golden Oak Inn Bed & Breakfast.  Relaxing is a must when staying at The Golden Oak Inn.  We offer a quiet environment, a comfortable bed with premium quality bedding, lots of plush fluffy pillows, and a number of amenities.  One off-street parking space is available for each guest room.  The Lincoln, Pennsylvania and South rooms each have a DVD player in the room.  You can bring your own DVDs from home or check one out from our over 500 DVD library collection.  Read a magazine or newspaper in the men’s parlor, or just sit back, relax, and read a book on the cushioned bay window seating bench in the library.
