Our Lancaster County PA bed and breakfast is located in the heart of Amish Country; 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 Bed and Breakfast; the perfect spot for all that Lancaster, Lititz, Hershey and Gettysburg have to offer.

A special word to Speedwell Forge Lake: It is back and we are so very excited. Ask us about canoes for a peaceful afternoon on the lake.

Goodbye from Swiss Woods…

After an amazingly wonderful 37 years Werner and I are pulling in the shingle. We will retire from innkeeping on October 31, 2022. The property will close as well because we are fortunate enough to be able to stay here.

We want to thank each and every one of you who trusted us with your vacation time, who returned time and again and have become friends. We could not have asked for a better innkeeping experience.

For your future stays in Lancaster County we highly recommend the Historic Smithton Inn in Ephrata, also a Select Registry inn.  Also: The Lancaster County Bed and Breakfast Association has inns all over the county and Select Registry has amazing inns all over the United States.

We can be reached by email at swisswoods500@gmail.com and for the time being our phone will also be connected. 717.627.3358.

Our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you. We wish you God’s blessing.

Debbie, Werner and staff- Erma and Marie
