I found this place through a livingsocial email I got a few weeks ago. We stayed here over a long weekend for our first wedding anniversary. Originally, we had not planned to do anything special, but when I saw the deal and saw there was availability for our anniversary weekend I felt that we couldn't pass it up. I've always wanted to visit Lancaster county and this seemed like the perfect (not to mention affordable) opportunity.
The inn is very cozy and inviting. We enjoyed some time out by the fire pit our first evening there. Breakfasts were fabulous and they did a great job accommodating my need for gluten-free meals. We did not need lunch at all since breakfast was so filling! While in the area, we browsed in the shops in downtown Lititz during their monthly Second Friday event, took a walking tour of downtown Lancaster, visited Lapp Valley Farm for some wonderful Amish ice cream, had a great anniversary dinner at General Sutter's Inn in downtown Lititz, visited the nearby wolf sanctuary (definitely worth the money), & went to a Hershey Bears game (and stopped at Hershey's Chocolate World for a hot cocoa before the game). It was great to be able to come back to the inn to unwind and relax after our outings. The coffee pot is always full and there are plenty of baked treats available for those who don't have dietary restrictions. There are also tons of different loose leaf teas to choose from. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, and we met some other very nice couples, which helped make breakfast more enjoyable. I would highly recommend Swiss Woods for a nice long weekend off the beaten path.
