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.
