Bischwind, a jewel in the crown of the Pocono Mountains, rises majestically above a hundred-acre lake surrounded by century old pine trees. Built by lumber and ice baron, Albert Lewis in 1886 it has been refurbished by the Von Dran/Eglish families for almost four decades. A large collection of antiques makes this English Tudor Manor House a unique experience when one stops to celebrate a memorable moment. If it is peace, elegance and great food you are searching for, then Bischwind belongs to you. Anyone with an interest in history will love dining in the Presidential Dining Room, which in its past, has hosted Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and Sikorsky. Sleeping in the Roosevelt Bed is also a historic treat, as it is almost a twin to the Lincoln Bed in the White House. Bischwind's rooms and suites have fireplaces, private baths, and three with jacuzzi whirlpool tubs, not to mention our library and common rooms complete with crackling fires, executive seating, and terraces that overlook the garden. Breakfast at the Bischwind is an occasion, with four courses featuring either our country breakfast with bacon or sausage or upgrade to our legendary filet mignon, filet of salmon and much, much more. Whether it's a romantic interlude or an executive conference, you'll find Bischwind has the ambiance you desire.

Simply The Best Bed and Breakfast!

5 on July 09, 2014

My stay could not have been any better. Upon arrival, we saw the house from the road and were amazed how beautiful the grounds were. The house was built in the 1800s and had some charming features inside. The host, Billi, was very accommodating in all aspects. She gave us a tour of the house and grounds. There was a very nice built in pool in the rear yard that overlooked the Pocono Hills. There also was a large field that bordered the Lake at the bottom of the hill. At night we took walks around the property as well as enjoyed the pool. The rooms were all very neat and each had a different theme; ours was the Bear's Den and featured windows almost on every wall, as well as a fire place and whirlpool tub. Each morning Billi would cook us a four course breakfast which was very delicious. If she offers to make her special omelet make sure you get it! The cake and fruit were also very good. On our first night we were the only couple there and Billi offered us to try any room we would like but opted to stay with our additional room so we would not have to move our stuff around; the house is very large! Seems like it would be a great place to host a small wedding. Billi also recommended some great local restaurants that we ate dinner each night; each was better than the last! When it came to planning out the day, we would ask Billi what was in the area. Being outdoor people, she recommended some great hikes and natural parks in the area. We also went kayaking on a lake. The trip truly could not have been any better and we will be back!

Simply the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. The decor is stunning. The food was fabulous. And the hosts could not have been nicer.

A lovely spring get away

5 on April 28, 2014

After this bitter winter, my husband and I were looking forward to a spring get- away. We could not have found a nicer place to stay than the Bischwind. Our room was wonderful, and so elegant. We enjoyed a beautiful view of the grounds and sunset in the evening. We were treated to a peek of all the rooms. Each was unique and beautifully decorated. Billi was a wonderful host. We were greeted each morning with her cheerful disposition and lovely breakfast. Learning about the history of area and the mansion was so interesting. I hope that we can return again soon! Thank you Billi! Jean and Chris

Bischwind Bridal Shower

4.8 on April 14, 2014

I had my bridal shower at the Bischwind Bed and Breakfast three weeks ago. It was definitely an experience I will never forget. My guests are still raving about it. The food was phenomenal as was the service provided by both Billi and her staff. The grounds are a treasure. The regal ambiance reminds you that you are in a very special place. I highly recommend having your bridal shower at the Bischwind for memories you and your guests will never forget!

Gem in the Poconos

Fantastic experience at the Bischwind. Rooms are beautiful and comforting. Some of the best sleep we've had in quite some time. Billi's breakfast provides the icing on the cake. Even with other guests there, feels like you have the home all to yourself. We will definitely be visiting the Bischwind for years to come.
