Lititz Bed and Breakfast close to all things Lancaster and Hershey

When traveling it is wonderful to just settle in and enjoy the surroundings. I can not tell you how often we are asked what there is to do in the area and the answer is... what do you LIKE to do, because the variety of interesting activites, shows, tours.. you name it is truly astounding.

While Lititz itself is a gem of a town with quality restaurants, unique and interesting shops, antique stores, a fabulous park and wonderful events it is not all there is to do and see. Aside from the beautiful gardens here which are currently filled with butterflies, hummingbirds, and gold finches. I want to give you a few ideas of what to do here on a hot day. An afternoon visit to Waltz Vineyards just north of Manheim is interesting and fun. Their Tuscan style tasting room is beautiful and the perfect spot to enjoy on a hot afternoon. Museums are also a great way to spend your day. Landis Valley Farm Museum and the Ephrata Cloister are both fascinating and offer something for the history buff.

This weekend marks the opening of the PA Rennasaince Faire. Only 7 miles from Swiss Woods we are the perfect lodging in northern Lancaster County for this event. Ever popular, this is held yearly in the fall on the grounds of the Mt Hope Estate and Winery.  Discount coupons are available.  
Plan your weekend now as rooms fill quickly!
