History of the Hotel

The Clock Tower Inn was built in 1995 and began as Black Bear Inn & Suites. It was purchased by the Roger Muselman family, lifelong residents of Berne in October, 2012. The owners and managers desire to create a place where the genuine care and comfort of our guests is our highest priority. We pledge to provide the finest personal service with an uncompromising level of cleanliness for our guests to enjoy each time they stay at Clock Tower Inn. We look forward to serving you on your next visit to our area.

Come see the plain, simple and beautiful Amish farms of Berne. The Inn sits on the north edge of Berne so guests can experience the peaceful way of rural life. Relax in an Amish-made rocking chair while you can see and hear the soothing sound of horses and buggies trotting by.

What People Are Saying

“Dear Clock Tower Inn staff,

Thank you for caring for us so genuinely while we have been out of working order in our house project. It has been a pleasure to meet you and use your facility. We have enjoyed visiting with Shelley, Pam, and Ernie over the last several days. Now we can appreciate the inn as guests.

Thank you!”


“Dear hosts at Clock Tower Inn,

Thank you all so much for your hospitality and all you have done to make this week’s stay restful and simply wonderful so as well can get the most out of the leadership seminar. May God bless you all for each of the ways you served us! From keeping the room in wonderful shape and comfort, to the nutritious breakfasts, along with the smiles in passing. May God reward you for all. Thanks again.”


My husband and I stayed at your inn last fall with our church on the marriage retreat. (Upper Valley Community Church) We were very impressed with your friendly and accommodating staff and the cleanliness of the inn. We stayed a 2nd night and very glad we did.
We were fortunate enough to get the last room on the main floor, which we were told is your “home away from home” when you stay there. Thank you for sharing it with us.

We own an ice cream shop where we make over 70 flavors. We also have homemade soups and sandwiches. I am enclosing a business card and we would be delighted to treat you to some great ice cream.

Thank you for such a great experience. (Click here to view note)
