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.

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.

We had an outstanding time at the Bischwind. The room, the hospitality of the owners and the quality of the breakfast were excellent. Our family has stayed in many B&B's and my wife has run her own B&B. This place is at the top of our list. We viewed many of the rooms and there is no bad. We may return to stay in the Roosevelt suite!

My husband & I had planned to spend his birthday weekend in the Pocono area but hadn't booked our stay anywhere. The BIschwind was a last minute find. We called Billi on our way to our weekend in PA. To our surprise there was one room left. We booked it and never regretted it. I felt like I was away on a fantasy weekend. This Bed & Breakfast is breathtaking. Beautiful grounds, beautiful house and even better, beautiful people and delicious food. Billi could not be more accommodating and after meeting her mother Barbara I could see why her daughter is so amazing. The Bischwind will forever be our go to home away from home. Thank you Billi!

Just came back from a great Mother/Daughter weekend. Everything was wonderful - Billi couldn't have more accommodating. She gave us great suggestions on restaurants and things to do in the area. The Bischwind is even more beautiful than the pictures. An additional plus was the weather couldn't have been more perfect. Thanks for a great escape. It couldn't have been better.
