BISCHWIND, offered turnkey, is an exquisite, lakefront English Tudor Country Manor in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains and currently operates as a premiere B&B under TripAdvisor's "Certificate of Excellence" distinction. Dating back to the 1890's (Lewis era) this waterfront property on Bear Creek Lake features a verdant, ascending lawn to a main structure that is nestled into a wooded pine backdrop. Beyond is a private cottage or caretaker's residence, two discreet utility barns / garages and newly rolled-stone access drives with a formal motor court. Its location is a basecamp for year-round exploring, sporting activities, historical jaunts and relaxation amid a natural landscape. One's initial impression is immediate and lasting from its interesting roof lines, 7 chimneys, massive stone columns, leaded windows and a wrap-around paver porch / terrace overlooking the pool and grounds. The registration entrance welcomes guests into a magical lobby area with two-story grand double staircase that leads to 5 of 8 individual and luxuriously appointed en suite guest-rooms. The Roosevelt offers a large sitting area, bookcases, wood burning fireplace, sunroom, long-distance views and private bedroom and bath, it's truly presidential, having hosted the man who spoke softly and carried a big stick! BISCHWIND also called William Taft, the 27th President, a friend during his stay. The list of notable guests goes on but true to the innkeeper's code - privacy is paramount! The north guest wing can be privately accessed from outside & cordoned off from inside the main kitchen for the upmost of privacy of 3 additional en suites, all with access to a common card room, full kitchen and secluded balcony for morning coffee or a late night scotch and cigar! An owner-operator or on-site manager has use of the north wing main-floor offering: private entrance, grand living room with fireplace, granite Kitchen, W/D, two office spaces, dressing room, bedroom and full bath. All 8 guest-rooms and suites can be booked together, separately or winged privately, 5 and 3 rooms, respectively, to accommodate larger groups looking to experience a lasting memory together. The inviting main kitchen, one of three on site, has an island with seating, room for 8 at tables and wood burning stove and is well equipped to serve its famous country breakfast or your next Thanksgiving dinner.,Informal access to the Presidential dining-room through its butler's pantry provides dual dishwashers, painted classic cabinetry, cutlery and linen drawers, prep stations and a three-basin sink. The dining-room is something Gatsby would have commissioned himself - an incredible split-stone stacked fireplace flanked by windows; stained glass provides an old-world glow, rich mahogany furniture, candelabras?imagine a President around the table for 12, your family discussing future endeavors or a corporate path to success. The draw for larger groups is the ballroom with a grand awning entrance fulfilling the dream of your own 60+ person event space complete with leaded glass door, sidelights and transom, twin chandeliers, gleaming wood floors, sconces, granite block fireplace, French doors, light-filled window seating and distant views - setting the stage for private soirees, receptions, corporate retreats or entertain extended family and friends in comfort and sophisticated style.
