George Washington Tavern - Lebanon, Pennsylvania

During an inspection of the Union Canal, the "Golden Link" used to transport anthracite coal and lumber from Lebanon County to Philadelphia, George Washington stayed in this large stone Colonial, which was then called the Swan Hotel. The property now operates as the George Washington Tavern and is decorated to honor the nation's first president and his wife, Martha. In addition to five furnished apartments, the property includes a liquor license—a bonus that Washington, who operated one of the nation's largest whiskey distilleries of his time, would surely have appreciated.

You can be the barkeep for only $695,000.
