Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, Mount Hope PA, (just north of Manheim, just south of Lebanon and only 10 minutes from Swiss Woods Bed and Breakfast) Thousands come for this weekend Faire and all the other wonderful varied activities available throughout the year.
Just a little over an hour from the Inn, it is a wonderful drive through Amish country. We just love this botanical garden of the DuPont family. Their Web site is filled with special events. A must see if you are in this part of the country.
This is the flea market of all flea markets. Several times a year they have Antique Extravaganzas.
One does not usually think of vineyards in Lancaster, but Nissley Vineyards is located in Marietta along the Susquehanna River. In the summer, their lawn concerts are a must do. Ask about our Picnic Baskets.
The Waltz family started the vineyards on the family farm that has been theirs for generations.. Not only does the location have an amazing view over Lancaster County farmlands, but the wines are wonderful. They are a short drive from the Inn and well worth a visit. Closed Sunday. Should you want a bottle of wine (red, white, or rose) while you are here at the Inn please let us know.. She have them on hand to purchase.
Just this month they have also opened a small store in Lititz! Sure makes it easy for our guests to source some of their amazing wine to take home.
This is the classic estate auction site that has auctions most Wednesdays. Just 10 minutes drive from the Inn it is a great way to spend a Wed afternoon. Guests have come back with some real finds from this auction.
