A warm greeting by your hosts welcomes you to this historic country farmhouse, homestead of the Trexlers's, dating from the late 18th century and set in the lush farmlands of Berks County, Pennsylvania, only minutes from the center of Allentown.

Close to many attractions and activities and a short drive from Kutztown and Reading. Longswamp is also the closest lodging to Bear Creek Ski Area and within a few miles of many Lehigh Valley Wineries, major antique outlets, Dorney Park and several fine restaurants. The Innkeepers can provide directions!

 Guests enjoy a full hot breakfast in our newly decorated dining room at private tables. There are five acres to walk, horseback riding nearby, biking and all the cultural activities of neighboring communities.

Longswamp features five large guest rooms in the Main House. Away from the Main House, we offer the Hideaway with a fireplace and private bath. And only a few steps away - the Cottage, which includes a living room with cable TV,  bedroom restored with the original ceiling beams as well as a brick fireplace, an adjoining private bath and a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, coffee pot and sink. For families or couples traveling together there is a second bedroom with a skylight and private bath on the second floor. The Hideaway and Cottage were formerly a way-station on the underground railroad.

There is a suite in what was formerly a horse stall in our fully finished Pennsylvania Bank Barn. The suite features a living room, small kitchenette, bedroom and private bath w/shower. All of our accommodations feature Queen beds, private baths and air conditioning. In addition, several now have TV’s, microwaves, mini-refrigerators. (We do not keep any animals in our Barn)

Longswamp Bed and Breakfast welcomes the opportunity to provide a warm, comfortable and unique visit.
