We volunteer at the sanctuary and love staying at the bed and breakfast. We did our volunteer service in the morning, retreated to our relaxing, air conditioned room and then headed to Hershey stadium for a concert. Staying at the inn made the drive home much shorter! We woke to a delicious breakfast and headed down to the sanctuary for... More

While searching for a place to stay, I discovered that there was a Wolf Sanctuary located on the ground of Speedwell Forge Bed and Breakfast. Since my husband and I share a... More

Speedwell Forge Bed Breakfast was the perfect spot for a quick get-away. Once we drove through the gates it was like the rest of the world faded away. We walked the grounds to visit the wolves at the Wolf Sanctuary where we met many of the local "residents" . Our room was perfect, comfortable and immaculate. Breakfast was delicious and... More

my wife and I met several family members at the speedwell forge bed and breakfast. We stayed there because they have a wolf sanctuary on the premises. As guests we were allowed to wander through the wolf area by ourselves when there were no other folks on the property. This was great as we got to see the wolves without... More

This place was one of the most amazing places we have ever had the privilege of staying. The Whyte House was spotless, private, large, handicap accessible and best of all... quite. The innkeeper was a lovely, helpful, welcoming lady and is passionate about what she does. Best of all, you can go there with your family and avoid all of... More

We had a wonderful time at Speedwell Forge B&B. Dawn, Darin & Brenda are wonderful people, doing wonderful things for the wolves. The wolves, by the way, are truly spectacular. Such beautiful animals. God bless the folks at Speedwell Forge for what they do to protect these animals. The Whyte House Cottage was beautiful and so very comfortable, as well... More
