“simply the best bed and breakfast!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

My stay could not have been any better. Upon arrival, we saw the house from the road and were amazed how beautiful the grounds were. The house was built in the 1800s and had some charming features inside. The host, Billi, was very accommodating in all aspects. She gave us a tour of the house and grounds. There was a very nice built in pool in the rear yard that overlooked the Pocono Hills. There also was a large field that bordered the Lake at the bottom of the hill. At night we took walks around the property as well as enjoyed the pool. The rooms were all very neat and each had a different theme; ours was the Bear's Den and featured windows almost on every wall, as well as a fire place and whirlpool tub. Each morning Billi would cook us a four course breakfast which was very delicious. If she offers to make her special omelet make sure you get it! The cake and fruit were also very good. On our first night we were the only couple there and Billi offered us to try any room we would like but opted to stay with our additional room so we would not have to move our stuff around; the house is very large! Seems like it would be a great place to host a small wedding. Billi also recommended some great local restaurants that we ate dinner each night; each was better than the last! When it came to planning out the day, we would ask Billi what was in the area. Being outdoor people, she recommended some great hikes and natural parks in the area. We also went kayaking on a lake. If you are a gambler, Mohegan Sun is just down the road and I would much rather stay here then at thier hotel. Our vacation truly could not have been any better and we will be back!

Nestled in the Pocono's, the Bischwind offers guests a winter respite from busy lives. A fire, some wine and a good book complement the TR Suite nicely. Breakfasts were very nice... Looking forward to our next retreat!

My wife and I have been going to Bischwind every year for the past 15 years. You won't find a more romantic, clean, or relaxing time in the Pocono area. Billy and Ralph are great people and we always enjoy our yearly trip to see them. And the food is out of this world too!

We stayed at the Bischwind the weekend after Thanksgiving 2013, staying in the TR Suite. The inn is beautiful and our room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was hearty and delicious. It was a cold weekend so we spent most of our time in the room in front of the fire watching movies. Billi was an excellent host, whom we enjoyed talking to. The only disappointment was having to leave. We hope to return very soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, we had a chance to see them all. Having stayed in the TR Suite, we recomme...

Do yourself a favor and spend some time at the Bischwind. Its a fantastic getaway destination. Quaint, comforting room, delicious breakfast and beautiful grounds create an ideal environment for relaxation. Whether you just want to sit in or be a bit active, there is plenty to do at this beautiful Pocono retreat. We will definitely be back.

Our family visited this amazing B&B. It has beautiful dark wood trim, a very homey entryway, and a big country breakfast. We had some lovely conversations with the owners. The region has a wealth of history. We highly recommend this location.

Room Tip: You would not be disapointed with any rooms!

Since childhood I have always wanted to stay in this B&B.For my 6 year anniversary my husband surprised me and booked a nights getaway. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and comfortable. Billie the owner made sure all of our needs were met,and introduced us to a wonderful quaint world, which has been in her family for 55 years! There is a 3 mile walk around the lake, beautiful first thing in the morning, then we came "home" for an amazing 4 course breakfast. It was quiet,the room was wonderful! We stayed in The Bears Den. Even with rooms near, you couldn't hear anyone, its like being in your own world. This was an amazing weekend. There is a great deli right around the corner, be there before 3 to get your sandwiches. Can't wait to see how she decorates for Christmas! Thank you Billie! Bob&Nicole

Room Tip: We stayed in the Bears Den which was wonderful! The bed was so comfortable, we slept so well!
