“Absolutely fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at Speedwell B & B and Howled with the rescued wolves at full moon with fresh fallen snow.
B & B was meticulously clean, the owners were wonderful and the food scrumptious.
It was perfect. We're going back to enjoy it again.

This is a repeat trip for us and Dawn continues to offer the best in accommodations and hospitality. A super bonus is visiting the wolves at the wolf sanctuary next door.
We have now stayed in all the rooms except the paymaster's cottage.

Room Tip: The summer cottage is the best in my opinion. On a budget? Then ask for Bill's Room

Traveling from Philadelphia to Ohio, we booked this B&B for 2 nights and we were just delighted for this « out-of-time » break !

Everything is so enchanting around and in the house (see website for more details). Dawn is a perfect hostess and will be ready to tell you more about this very special house - not to mention Dary and his stories about the wolves they take care of.

Speedwell Forge is beautiful and the proprietor made us feel welcomed and at home. The room was lovely and had all the tech amenities we would ask for including cable TV and a router in our room. The food was fresh, local and artfully prepared with care given to accommodate a special diet. We felt at ease using the common areas and the grounds were delightful. The presence of the wolves and their music completed an exceptional experience.

We brought our very good friends, who were visiting from Germany, to Speedwell for a quick country getaway and of course to visit the amazing wolves. Everything was wonderful-from the friendly and hospitable inn keeper-Dawn, to the awesome wolves, who are so perfectly cared for and respected- to the beautiful grounds and accomodations. It was such a wonderful experience for us, as Americans, and a great memory for our friends to take back to Germany with them. Can't wait to return!

Great relaxing place to stay. Close enough yet distant enough for peace and quiet. Dawn is an excellent hostess and chef!

This was one of the nicest, cleanest places we've ever stayed. The attention to detail and level of hospitality of the innkeepers was above and beyond what we've ever experienced. This was a wonderful place to stay, we'll be back!!

Room Tip: Paymaster's office was private and secluded from main house, Outdoor kitchen looked nice also...
