“Wonderful Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Last night my wife and I stayed in the paymaster's house and what a place...beautifully furnished, hot tub, fire place and kitchenette. The Wolf Sanctuary is a few hundred feet away and we visited when no one else was around. Dawn and staff couldn't have been more friendly! Breakfast was wonderful! If you're in the south central Pennsylvania area, this should be a must have experience!

Beautiful scenery surrounding a beautiful bed and breakfast! The beds were comfortable, the food was delicious and the owners are so friendly. We had a wonderful time exploring the gardens and surrounding Lititz area. I would definitely recommend staying in this bed and breakfast and the next time we need to get away we will come back to stay here.

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!
