My wife and I rented the guest cottage for the weekend. As such, we did not take advantage of the Bischwind's breakfast. But the cottage was amazing.
For our anniversary, I decided to surprise my wife with a weekend getaway. As I'm originally from Wilkes Barre, I knew of the Bischwind after having attended a wedding on their amazing grounds. Maybe we didn't need a whole cottage for two people, but I wouldn't have done it any differently.
The cottage is decorated in a contemporary country style with a rather prominent equestrian theme. We prepared our own meals in the full kitchen and had a blast doing it. The cottage also came equipped with a washer and dryer. Who wants to do laundry on vacation? Well, it came n handy after my wife and I went trail riding in White Haven during our trip (who wants to smell like horse?).
Billi was exceptionally friendly and helpful during our stay. Despite breakfast not being included int he cottage rental (we were aware of this at the time of booking), she made us feel welcome in the main house.
The cottage is equipped with a hot tub in the master bedroom. Very nice. A fireplace in the den completes the atmosphere. This cottage was phenomenal and the stay was unforgettable.
