See the sights of bustling Pennsylvania Dutch country, then get away from the crowds by heading for this Swiss-inspired hideaway high on a hill.
You’ll be greeted with balconies laden with flowers, with gardens all around. Dark beams, a stone fireplace, and handcrafted furniture in light woods set a chalet style.
Seven cheerful rooms are named for places like Lugano, Appenzell, and Matterhorn. Each opens to a patio or balcony for views of gardens and countryside; the sound of crickets will lull you to sleep. Two rooms offer Jacuzzi tubs.
Hearty breakfasts include the house specialty, Birchermuesli, a Swiss fruit-and-yogurt dish full of strawberries and raspberries from the garden.
Bottom line: Seclusion in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country.
