“Beautifully restored romantic Inn”
Reviewed September 30, 2006

My husband and I stayed here for one night -- our first overnight away from our daughter, who's two. I'm so glad we chose Speedwell Forge Bed & Breakfast!
The house has been immaculately restored and updated in many ways while retaining the period charm and grandeur of the property. The common rooms are lovely, inviting and comfortable. We stayed in Kathryn's Room, which as noted by the previous reviewer was simply terrific for a romantic getaway! The bed was superbly plush and cozy, and the bathroom was an unbelievable treat with a tile floor heated from beneath and a beautiful glassed-in corner shower. Can we talk about the tub? I am a girl who likes a proper soak and the tub in Kathryn's room was one of the largest and most pleasant I have ever enjoyed.
The breakfast was delicious, and Gregg and Dawn are great conversationalists and born innkeepers. Enjoy the "Journal" section of their website before you go!

  • Liked — The pleasant innkeepers.
  • Disliked — We prefer a gas fireplace to electric. Sorry!
  • Tips/Secrets — Read the online Journal before staying there -- it's fascinating to read about all the work that went into the house!

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days in the lovely Kathrin's room. Boy, did we love it! The B&B has a charm you will only rarely find at other places and the owners, Dawn and Gregg, are the most lovely and sweet people you could ever meet!

The room was very clean, the breakfast was sooooo tasty, and the hospitality was simply amazing! We will certainly return for another getaway trip!

  • Liked — Hospitality
  • Disliked — n/a
  • Tips/Secrets — Choose either "Kathrin's room" or the "Paymaster's house"!
