Work to renovate and add a small addition to the Carversville Inn recently began.
The Carversville Inn at the intersection of Carversville Road and Fleecy Dale Road in Solebury Township has been vacant since 2020, but owners Milan Lint and Mitch Berlin plan to overhaul the property and breathe new life into it.
In 2022, the owners presented plans to the community to revive the establishment as a “tasteful country inn and restaurant.”
The Solebury Township Board of Supervisors approved amended construction plans for the property last month.
The building in the historic section of the township will have a 65-seat eatery on the first floor, six inn rooms on the second and third floors, and a small one-story addition. The building is also expected to conform to Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
Isaac Stover established the Carversville Inn in 1855. The Carversville Inn has functioned as a general shop, ice cream parlor, and gas station over the years, according to the Historic Carversville Society.
