This was our first B&B experience and I must say Dawn has set the bar high! You really feel at home here! Both the house and grounds are meticulously cared for. We spent a long anniversary/birthday weekend and must say we'll be back... With friends!

If we had to pick the most amazing part of our stay here we would be hard-pressed to answer. Was it the fabulous "Paymaster's" cottage with two person jacuzzi tub and fireplace? Was it the superb organic breakfasts and company in the main house each morning? Or was it the walk through the wolf sanctuary on a moonlit night? I... More

My wife and I just completed a two night stay at Speedwell Forge, and we are so pleased with our stay. Dawn greeted us and provided with all the necessary information that was needed to ensure a comfortable visit. We certainly felt welcomed from the start. The inn and grounds were a quiet and tranquil respite from our busy life.... More

This B&B is a house built in 1760 and lovingly restored by its owner, Dawn. It is beautifully decorated and meticulously clean, yet has a warm and comfortable vibe. Dawn explained the 'no shoe policy' in her confirmation email, so we were prepared with slippers/socks. When we saw the beautiful floors, we fully understood. Dawn prepares a wonderful 3-course breakfast... More

We stayed in one of the houses on the property-it was marvelous. Can't wait to return. The people are the greatest and the breakfasts are not to be missed. Of course we were there to see the wolves in the sanctuary and it was the best couple of days I have had in a long time. THe house had every... More

My husband and I arrived around 4pm on a Friday for a 2-night stay in the "Paymaster's Office" cottage. As we pulled in to a space in front of the main building, the front door opened and we were greeted by one of the resident innkeepers, Dawn, an easy going, charming, garrulous host, ready with a fount of information about...

This place was recommended by a couple we met at another B&B last year. The place is beautiful, room is very nice but the hosts are not exactly what I consider welcoming or warm -- which is what I expect from a B&B.

We stayed here in May and it was a unique and thoroughly pleasurable experience. One is aware constantly, in both the house and its grounds and outbuildings, of the layers of history that exist here in this spot. The beautiful stone house has been lovingly and respectfully restored to its former colonial nature. We stayed in "Kathryn's Room" and felt... More

So happy that I accepted an invitation from dear friends to join them on a get-a-way at Speedwell Forge. The experience was absolutely wonderful!! The Inn is located on a fabulous property that included a wolf sanctuary. We began our morning by participating in an excellent guided tour given by a volunteer named Matt. He was able to tell us...

This was one of the most memorable trips of my lifetime. My husband, a dear friend and I had a very special tour of the wolf sanctuary on the same property as the Speedwell Forge B&B and then we spent the night in immaculately clean and beautiful rooms in a very special, historic Lodge. We could not have asked for... More
