Cafe Chocolate in Downtown Lititz, Pa

Cafe Chocolate is a must when visiting historical downtown Lititz. Located on Main Street, the small cafe boasts incredible organic eats, fair-trade coffee and espresso, as well as a plethora of decadent chocolate truffles. Our favorite drink has to be the famous ”Turbo”. Steamed milk, rich chocolate and a shot of espresso make this the…

A Trip to Middle Creek

As I approached Museum Road sunlight danced across frozen oak turning what was a dismal winter scape, into a brilliant forest made of glass. Middle Creek has always been one of my favorite places to escape. Summer brings a potpourri of wildflowers that run rampant over the foothills of the reserve followed by an October…

A Warm Winter Gathering at our Lititz Bed & Breakfast

As dusk began to fall, Debbie and I hastily put the last finishing Parmesan touches on our flaky oven rolls and did a quick taste test of what was the heartiest of beef stews. Tonight we were hosting the annual meeting for the Lancaster County Innkeeper’s Association and there was no time to waste. Swirls of freshly brewed coffee met the rising…

Shopping in Lancaster County

  Hot apple cider, the crackle of a wood fire and crisp autumn leaves. Now is a wonderful time to grab a loved one and escape for a few days. If you haven’t gotten the chance to explore what this area has to offer, the opportunities are endless. A few miles south of our inn…

The Red Chair visits the Coolest Small town, Lititz, PA

Recently we were honored to have the Red Chair on a two day visit as it makes it’s way across the US. (Follow the Red Chair’s travels here) It arrived here at Swiss Woods just as the Lititz Craft Show was underway, so it picked a very busy time to visit. We were the first…

The Red Chair has arrived at Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast

After spending some time near Philly Red was ready for the country. A visit to the Lancaster County Farmers Market was her last stop, where she snagged a ride with my sister Joanna after enjoying one of Country Twist’s amazing soft pretzels. This morning she is catching up with her journal out by the lily…

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
