Top Notch...

5 on October 27, 2016

The Swiss Woods in one of the best we've stayed at. Pretty country and pretty property. This B&B is outstanding with ambiance, hospitality, and breakfast. A plus is the closeness to Lititz which was designated "The coolest small American town" in 2013. You will not be disappointed in any way.

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast in Lititz, Pa. near the American Music Theater!

5 on September 16, 2016

The owners, Werner and Debbie, are incredible hosts to a weekend getaway! The rooms are exquisite, the breakfast scrumptious and hearty always with fresh fruit and homemade muffins, and a bottomless jar of homemade biscotti and cookies! They have an adorable gift shop on the premises with homemade honey, teas, soaps and Deb's own cookbook! Truly the best bed and breakfast in Pennsylvania! It is close to the American Music Theater which is known for its great performances! The Log Cabin is also nearby for a romantic dinner before the show. Returning to the Swiss Woods each night was incredible with the magical gardens Werner has created throughout the property in addition to his hosting of smores making in the evening by the outside fire pit! We look forward to returning soon!! Outstanding!!

So relaxing

Perfect Relaxing Getaway

4.8 on January 10, 2015

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 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!

5 on April 28, 2014

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.

Lovely place

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.

Get Ready to Relax

My wife and I spent our first wedding anniversary at Swiss Woods and we already booked next year's trip. This was our first B&B and we are now big fans. If you're looking for a nice relaxing stay, I highly recommend the Swiss Woods. Fresh food, clean environment, well groomed grounds, secluded areas, hiking trails, fireplace, and even rooms with private balconies and jacuzzi tubs. Be prepared to relax.

Tranquil and Relaxing

What a wonderful place to get away from the stress and rat race of every day living. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, beautiful naturalized gardens and hospitality afforded us by the innkeepers and staff. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed. The breakfasts and homemade goodies (which were available all day) were absolutely delicious!!! We will definitely return, and soon!

A relaxing quiet weekend - A Little Piece of Switzerland in Pa dutch Country

4.0 on September 22, 2010

We were delighted with our accommodations. The Inn is beautiful and the food delicious. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the dog was a delightful part of the Swiss feeling. The driveway up to the Inn was for me a bit unnerving. As I drove up the whole scene came together and was a wonderful sight to behold.

Hidden Gem

4.2 on August 31, 2010

A hidden oasis tucked away in PA. The grounds are intoxicating, the rooms charming, and the innkeepers perfectly balance being available should you wish to seek input on nearby attractions, however they disappear the rest of time, making visitors feel free to fully relax and enjoy the inn. The staff was fantastic to work with and make you feel right at home. The food was incredible and everything was quite clean. Enjoyable place to visit, relax and explore.

A cozy retreat

5 on August 30, 2010

We arrived later in the evening to delicious cookies and lemon bars with coconut (melted in you month) They also had a great selection of hot chocolate and teas (including herbal) which was wonderful because we are not coffee drinkers ! We had fun playing games from their nice choice of games that evening. The beds where so comfortable I forgot I was not at home, and of course the breakfast was the best including waffles, scrapple, sausage and fresh raspberries and peaches! Debbie and Werener also made us feel so welcome!

A Wonderful Weekend

5 on June 29, 2010

With bucolic surroundings, a friendly welcoming staff and thought-provoking stories from its innkeeper, the Swiss Woods is tucked away in the farm country of southern PA. The rooms are private, and the grounds are calling to be explored.

A wonderful stopover on our trip to Philadelphia

5 on March 28, 2010

Upon our arrival we were given a choice of rooms as we were the only guests that night. Our host and hostess were very cordial and welcoming. We very much enjoyed the delicious breakfast along with their friend from Austria. I would love to see the grounds when they are in full bloom. This B&B is very nicely located in a beautiful area of Pennsylvania.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lazy weekend at Swiss Woods. It was so comfortable and peaceful, we didn't even want to do much sight seeing. A much needed R&R time. Thank you for the fabulous breakfasts and for giving us the royal welcome. We are looking forward to our return visit!

Our first B&B experience

We were celebrating our 33rd anniversary. We wanted to visit that Amish Country, but also wanted a cozy, romantic getaway. We got both! Swiss Woods was perfect! The room was unique, the gardens were spectacular, and the food was to die for! Thanks, Swiss Woods...The Lord willing, we'll be back!

couples getaway!

4.8 on October 29, 2008

My husband and I, and our daughter and son-in-law spent a long weekend at the Swiss Woods and had a great time. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful, and our rooms were very nice. My room had a fine collection of books, mostly about the amish life, so I stayed up reading on many a night. We liked the decor of our rooms and the setting was very quiet.

We are 5 couples that are returning to Swiss Woods for the 6th year in a row. We LOVE IT. It's relaxing, cozy and warm. Werner & Debbie make you feel like you belong. After a long day of enjoying the PA country side. Werner will have a nice warm Fire going and Debbie will always have a sweet treat waiting. You have to check this place out.
