Bischwind
Ranked #1 of 2 Bear Creek B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at The Bischwind due to the warm and friendly atmosphere set by Billie English, the proprietor. Her welcoming personality, along with her specialty cheese omelette, set the tone for a comfortable stay. We stayed in the Green Room. The bed was soooo comfortable, and only the best sheets, quilts and towels are used. The only downside to the Green Room is that Billie has most windows blinded with lace curtains that the guests cannot pull back, which make for a dark room. But we had our own mini-fridge, and Billie offered to wrap any breakfast food we couldn't finish to keep in the fridge for later.
There was wifi and a huge array of DVD movies one could take up to the room.
I was disappointed that there was no comfy sitting room/library in the common area, but a small disappointment, only.
The swimming pool was delicious, and the grounds were kept beautifully. I was surprised, however, to see that the B&B's true address is PA 115 and not Coach Rd. It's a 2-lane state road that's a main artery in that area. So, when one is sitting by the pool, instead of complete natural serenity, one hears trucks and cars racing by.

We thank our guests for bringing to our attention details which will make future visits more pleasant. The curtains have been addressed in the Green Suite which I also just love now allowing more or less light to enter the room. Also our address is 1 Coach Road however one side of our property does border Route 115. Please use the address of 1 Coach Rd. for GPS or shipping needs.

Our trip was fantastic, thanks to Billi and her friendly personality! We stayed in the Pine Paddock Cottage which is not located on the B&B property but just down the street. It was so clean and wonderfully decorated that we felt at home and very relaxed. The cottage had everything we needed and the views were spectacular. Even though we didn't stay at the B&B itself Billi still took the time to show us around the grounds and through all the rooms and while doing so she gave us the history behind Bear Creek and the B&B...It was a wonderful, relaxing trip and it wasn't to far from home. The cottage is perfect for the friends or family that want a get together without staying in a crowded hotel with only a lobby. The B&B is also perfect for the same kind of getaway. It was spacious and private.Thanks Billi !!!!!!!

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The house is beautiful and very comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. The homeowner, Billi, is a wonderful hostess. She is very outgoing and welcoming, but also very helpful. We arrived a little late in the evening, but she waited up for us and got us settled. She had great recommendations as far as restaurants and activities in the area go. This was my first time at a B&B, and I'm afraid to go to another one because I fear it won't live up to the same standard. I would strongly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

This B&B is absolutely beautiful! Worth the price because you feel like you are at a resort! The house is outstanding- like walking back in time with all modern necessities! The breakfast is delicious! Beautiful pool, walking trails, horse trails, and restaurants close to Bischwind. It was our second stay and we're looking forward to our third visit.

My husband and I stayed at Bischwind for two nights after our wedding and recently returned to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We tossed around a lot of other locations, but decided on Bischwind again. Billi is wonderful. She is outgoing and friendly, and most of all a gracious hostess. I love that she shares stories of the home's history and her family history. Bischwind is really starting to become a special place for us. We want to return many more times and we joked with Billi that we'd love to stay in every room. She actually upgraded our reservation free of charge because a few of the rooms were unoccupied. While giving us a tour of the place, she allowed us to choose the room we stayed in. The room was comfortable and beautiful. We were sad to leave and can't wait to return!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful, but we especially like the North Wing rooms. They are separate from...

We stayed the weekend of April 26th. What a beautiful place. Billi was a wonderful host, sharing restaurant ideas and things to do. We had lunch at a wonderful place right down the street called the Bear Creek Cafe on 2 occasions. We enjoyed fishing, a little hiking, and the Mohegan Sun Casino during our visit. We had one of our lunches on the patio of the Bischwind. We just loved it and the view was gorgeous. The breakfasts that Billi served were wonderful on both days. There was a large selection of DVD's to watch while you wind down in the evenings.
Billie was always ready to accomodate us. Since the B&B wasn't full, we were able to upgrade to the Master's Room for no charge. This really made our stay. We just loved the room. This place really had everything we needed!
We can't say enough about the Bischwind and would come back anytime!

This B&B was an amazing find in Pennsylvania. We wanted to find a place to stay while on vacation in the Poconos and after reading reviews chose the Bischwind. It was the best choice I have made in a long time. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. If you are a history buff, the owners are more than happy to regale you with the stories of the home's famous guests, which includes Theodore Roosevelt. The common room fireplace is not to be missed, making for a very comfortable breakfast area or a place to plop down and play board games. The near by waterfall (restored ice baron dam) is a pleasant backdrop to this B&B. I would recommend this B&B looking for a warm and pleasant stay in the Poconos.

Room Tip: The beehive room has a real working fireplace, but if you are looking for a view the master room wou...
