I can't say enough good things about this place, and I'm absolutely stunned that I'm the first yelp reviewer, but pleased to do it. My fiancé and I have been coming for our anniversary trip for 4 years now. From our first stay, we have always felt very welcome and comfortable here. We always stay in the lower cottage, which...

I was looking for an all inclusive wedding under $100 a head. There was nothing I could find for a reasonable price and then I stumbled upon Longswamp bed and breakfast, it was perfect! I could not have asked for better host and in a more beautiful location. They were so accommodating and made every detail special. Thank you so...

There is nothing to say about this establishment except: PRICELESS!!! This is the best b&b that I've ever been to, and trust me, I've been to PLENTY. There is something about coming to Longswamp that is akin to visiting the place where I grew up. It is familiar yet 'different'; it is like home, yet quaint enough to know that...

This B & B is a delightful spot to stay any time of year. We most recently visited in the winter, and it was lovely, but when the gardens are in bloom, the grounds are gorgeous. A glass of wine on the terrace is a must in nice weather. There are a couple of out buildings in addition to the...

Once upon a time an overworked and exhausted mom and dad booked a weekend at Longswamp, looking to rejuvenate. Joanne and John took care of every detail - breakfasts to die for (tasty fresh fruit in January!?! - yum!), massages, directions to church, and tasty dinner recommendations. This story has a happy ending. The mom and dad went hope restored,...

We stopped at Longswamp on our way home to NYC from VA. We stayed in the Cottage, it was rustic but quiet, comfortable, well equipped (we enjoyed the fireplace!) and immaculately clean! We stay at B&B’s frequently, many pretend to be foofy or upscale, but are dirty and dusty under the bed. Not here! JoAnn served us a great breakfast...

We recently moved one of our parents to the Diakon Home in Topton, PA, during the Christmas holidays. During the week long process we stayed at the nearby Longswamp Bed and Breakfast because they were recommended. We stayed in the Lower Cottage. It was perfect for us- lots of room, kitchenette, amenities and a fireplace! Our accommodation was very clean...

We stayed only 2 nights, but it felt like we had a long weekend vacation, it was wonderful. We stayed during the October snowstorm and could not get out to dinner, but JoAnn provided us with a delicious meal, not normally included in the weekend. The rooms we had were very clean and the bed was comfortable.

We had a wonderful stay at Longswamp! JoAnn and John were so very hospitable... and especially accomodating! We were there, during the snow storm of October, and while there was intermittent power outages, JoAnn made sure that we were comfortable and well-fed. We could not have had better hosts! Food was outstanding, and if you stay at Longswamp, ask JoAnn...

My husband I and I traveled from Washington DC to Longswamp B&B for a little rest and relaxation before his mountain bike race at Bear Creek. Unfortunately, we were giving the "Hideaway" as our room. The first thing that hit us was the overwhelming smell of mildew when we walked through the door. This tiny room looked and felt like...
