Built in 1760 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Speedwell Forge B&B offers a peaceful retreat in natural elegance. Two lovely guest rooms and three private cottages, all with private bath, on a relaxing 120-acre farm boarding a nature park and rolling Pennsylvania Hills. The perfect place to get away from it all, yet only minutes from the historic small towns of Lititz, Ephrata, Manheim, and all of Pennsylvania Dutch Country.

Everything at Speedwell was perfect! Great service, great people, and a perfect little sanctuary to get away from all of the noise! Loved hearing the wolves start the day with a beautiful sound of nature.

We totally enjoyed our stay! Ended up getting in late and had issues finding our place. We were welcomed and shown to our "room" even though we checked in a lot later than we initially relayed to them. We cant put a price on our experience because it was unforgettable.

"The Paymaster is awesome!"
"Absolutely beautiful! The dignity with which the wolves are handled is exceptional. Excellent experience!"
"We stayed in Bill’s room, which was very pretty and comfortable."

"We love the white house but any of the rooms in the house are excellent choices."
