I stayed at the Swiss Woods during my boyfriend's and my winter break from graduate school and work. We had the best time! The Lugano room was cozy and well-kept. I especially enjoyed the heat bulbs in the bathroom and the en suite door to the lovely patio. The dog, Baeri, couldn't have been sweeter. Speaking of sweet, the daily baked goods were divine. My boyfriend and I could't get enough of the apple cake and the chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. It definitely felt like vacation with all of the home-cooked food we were spoiled with! The grounds of the B&B were gorgeous. Lititz is also a wonderful town with a really warm vibe. The people we met seemed incredibly friendly and genuine. We greatly enjoyed shopping on Main St 10 minutes from the B&B and drinking beer at the Stoudt Brewery about 20 minutes away. The B&B is also a conveniently quick drive to Lancaster, which boasts a charming downtown and some nice outlets. We had a lot of fun in Lancaster City browsing the shops. The Wolf Sanctuary was also a must-see. Overall, we LOVED our time at Swiss Woods. Werner and Debbie were the most hospitable hosts. We will definitely be coming back!

A clean and neat retreat in the woods

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.&#13;&#10;&#13;&#10;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.

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.
