Martin’s Carriage Auction Oct 15/16 2016 just minutes from Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast

Here at Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast we make it a point to keep our guests informed on all there is to do in Lititz,PA as well as Lancaster County in general, but we are fortunate to be located not far from the Lebanon County line.  Lebanon has several interesting things going on but one of the more fascinating is their twice yearly antique carriage auction.  Martins Auctioneers is known for this

unique auction which draws people from all over the US and even Europe. Carriages that are rare, in good condition find their way here. Are you a carriage collector or just interested in antiques, this is one for you. This auction also includes saddles, accessories and tack of all kinds. Perfect for any horse lover. We are located a short 12 miles from the auction (a 20 min drive) and the perfect place to come back to after a successful day. Our property can easily accommodate any trailer you might be pulling to take your prize carriage back home. Check out their website for the beauties they will have up for sale this October.
The auction begins at 9am and we are more than happy to do an early breakfast for anyone wishing to be there at the start.

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 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
