Located in Lederach, the Inn owes much of its rich history to the descendants of Andrew Lederach, a Swiss immigrant who settled the town in 1717. In 1830, his great grandson built the Lederach Hotel, which the Bay Pony Inn now occupies.Today there are few inns that excel the Bay Pony Inn in the seriousness of its restoration. Guests are singularly impressed with its quiet beauty. The Bay Pony Inn features that rarity among country inns... subdued elegance, beguiling charm and modern conveniences, seldom found in early American inns. To complement this gracious setting, their chef, Thomas Herter, takes pride in preparing American and International culinary traditions. Innkeepers Eduard and Florence Knechtl combine their talents, with domestic and international experience, four and five star hotels, traveling to London, Vienna, Singapore, Hamburg, Munich, Bermuda and the continental U.S. obtaining valuable insight on different cultures and traditions. Allow them to share with you a bit of the old world charm and elegance. Come and enjoy the gracious service and their warm hospitality. They promise a truly enjoyable dining experience.
