UNDER THE STARS IN THE WOODS

3.4 on November 14, 2014

A clean and neat retreat in the woods


Autumn Respite

5 on October 31, 2014

Autumn is a great time to visit the beautiful farmlands of Lancaster PA and the perfect time to take a break to relax at the Swiss Woods Inn Bed and Breakfast in Lititz. Of the dozens of east coast B&Bs my husband and I have enjoyed over the years, Swiss Woods stands out as one of our very favorites. The wooded location has easy hiking trails for unwinding and simply enjoying being surrounded by nature. Barry, the family Bernese Mountain dog, even served as our personal pal and trail guide! The Inn is comfortable with many gracious details like daily baked goods, a wonderful assortment of loose leaf teas, and bedding so comfortable you will want to linger each morning. The clean, comfortable furnishings are European in flavor. The nightly fire pit offered us a cozy spot to relax as a couple one night and a friendly gathering place to enjoy the company of other guests on another night. A highlight is the lovely, fragrant bar and liquid soaps that are supplied generously. Without a doubt, Debbie’s delicious and abundant breakfasts earn top scores. Eating at two tables in the large common area is not as intimate as the dining rooms of other inns, but we thoroughly enjoyed leisurely, sumptuous meals that included several dishes, home baked goods, fresh fruits, juices, coffee and teas. My husband and I thank Debbie and Werner for a lovely respite and truly look forward to our return.


A beautiful getaway!

We had an amazing time celebrating our anniversary at Swiss Woods. The small touches such as chocolates and tea, made us feel so special while we were there. The gardens are beautiful and so peaceful. Just a short ride from downtown Lititz and a little further to Lancaster.


Best B&B ever!

5 on July 15, 2014

Have styayed here many times over the years and it is like "coming home". Debbie and Werner are wonderful hosts and run a top-drawer B&B. The place is immaculate, including the grounds which Werner takes justifyiable pride in.


Wonderful All Around!

Swiss Woods B&B definitely met all my expectations. My husband and I were heading to Lititz to go to the Wolf Sanctuary. The staff arranged for us to have a special early breakfast so we could make our 8 am tour. The room made us feel like we were in Switzerland - lots of nice Swiss touches. The feather quilts and linens were really soft! They set up a bon fire in the evening which was lovely. The full breakfast was delicious and the service was great! I totally recommend it.


Last Minute Get-A-Way

4.8 on March 19, 2014

We stayed at Swiss Woods on a last minute trip to Lititz. We have stayed at many B&B's over the last several years and this was my favorite! The people and the food was the die for! The deserts that are out all day long were GREAT. And the conversations were even better. Thank you to Debbie and Werner for your hospitality!


Winter Weekend Break

4.6 on February 16, 2014

This is the second time we have stayed at the Swiss Woods B & B and it was as remarkable as the first time 14 years ago. Our next visit won't take as long. A restful, friendly and wonderful break in the middle of Winter.

Great Weekend Escape!

4.6 on September 26, 2013

We were looking for a place near Lancaster to get away from it all. The Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast was just the right fit. The breakfasts were wonderful, the grounds serene, time around the fire pit at night with our fellow travelers was peaceful and enjoyable! The hiking trails around the property were also a plus for us. The owner of the Inn were wonderful. While we were planning on staying only 2 days, we increased our visit to 3 for this weekend, as we were enjoying the rest and relaxation so much. Loved the actual town of Liditz. Only 20-23 min away form all the usual Lancaster sites. Well worth the stay if you enjoy a peaceful rustic type swiss lodge environment in the middle of the woods/cornfields of Lancaster County.

San Bernadino

The San Bernadino Room's focal point is an unusual Queen canopy bed with twisted walnut posts. A reproduction from an English castle, this bed is unforgettable.

White pine bead board paneling gives this first-floor room a mountain chalet feeling. Swiss style woodcarving surrounds a built-in desk, and comfy upholstered chairs provide a place for more relaxed reading. Both the room and the full private bath are decorated in whites and florals, with a beehive border reminding you of the gardens outside.

About the innkeepers

Werner's special talent is evidenced in the profusion of flowers surrounding the inn. Annuals, unusual perennials, flowering shrubs and bushes abound. Woodland wildflowers, like the elusive Jack-in-the Pulpit, peek out along the edges of paths. Bee Balm attracts the hummingbirds and Buddleia the butterflies. Debbie's talents are more evident in the wonderful breakfasts and lovely rooms in Swiss Woods.
