Our Lititz, Pennsylvania bed and breakfast is located in the heart of Lancaster County; an idyllic, rural inn where you can reconnect with nature, discover history, and experience Pennsylvania Dutch culture, lulling you back to a slower, gentler time.

From the open-beamed entry to the hand-carved mantel over the fireplace, Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast is an inn of detail with the feel of Europe.

Enjoy a walk through the magnificent gardens blooming from the first snowdrop in March to the last aster in November. Relax to the sounds of water falling over the rocks at the water garden. For the nature enthusiast, it is the perfect retreat.

Hiking, biking, and bird watching enthusiasts will love the opportunities. The Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania is a short mile away, just behind the Inn on the upper side of the lake,  and offers many chances to see the wolves, including the very popular monthly full-moon tours. Check their website for the tour times. 

Swiss Woods; the perfect spot for all that Lancaster, Lititz, Hershey and Gettysburg have to offer.

A special word to Speedwell Forge Lake:  We are excited to share that the 6.4 million in funding that is needed to repair the dam is in place and we will get the lake back much sooner than we expected.  To read more about this the link to the press release, pictures and more information can be found at Save Speedwell.
