Dawn and Darin,
Thank you so much for welcoming us so kindly into your home. Breakfast every morning was delicious and the perfect way to start the day. The room was great and the house has such charm. You are great people to chat with too! The wolves are fantastic and so much fun to watch. We loved it so much that we spontaneously booked an extra night on the day we were supposed to be leaving. We will be returning for sure!

Just married 5/31/14, came to check in 6/1/14. We have been here for a day – tour last spring. Our honeymoon was held until late this summer and we had no hesitation on deciding where to spend our “mini-moon”…in peaceful Lititz, Pa with the wolves! Kathryn’s room is very elegant, natural, and the bathroom is so accommodating. Dawn and Darin are wonderful people with big hearts. You can tell they enjoy what they do, and really love their wolves. We are fortunate to have such a haven close-by to our hometown of Baltimore. We will be back soon!

Thanks for a great weekend,

This was a much needed get away for my boyfriend from his work. It was a surprise for him and he had no clue where we were going. The suite is wonderful, more than I could have wished for. The fireplace is grand. The tub wonderful. We loved the wolves and enjoyed walking the ground. We will be back again

OMG, your home and grounds are overwhelming and how gracious of you to share it with friends as a Bed and Breakfast! We feel extremely honored to stay with you, as this is our introduction to B&B Inns. We are in the area to attend our Great Grandnephew’s baptism tomorrow in Lititz, Pa. Thank you for your humble hospitality Kathryn’s room is lovely! Could go on and on….will save some for our next visit when we can visit the wolf sanctuary. We hear that is a treat also.

Thank you for a wonderful room to rest and opening your home to us strangers. Thank you for the great breakfast and beautiful grounds. Thanks for keeping these beautiful animals safe from harm and giving many sanctuary to not be killed. We will be back. Thanks so much for all that you do here.

The final night of our epic road trip was spent at your beautiful place. It was wonderful to have a peaceful night surrounded by beauty before our final days in NYC…. Delicious breakfast followed by a lovely walk and a soundtrack of howling wolves. Magical..
Thank you so much!

What a great idea for a B&B! Totally unique and so wonderful. My husband and I always love an adventure – especially when animals are involved
What a beautiful gift this place is, and we really can’t wait to share with others the warmth and fun we had here!
Great company, great food and we’re so glad that we upgraded (the spa was worth it)!
Thank you so much!

Dawn and Darin, this B&B is so amazing. Considering this is our first ever experience with a B&B. I do believe you have both blessed us and spoiled us. The Wolf Sanctuary is spectacular and hearing them howl was something I hope my children get to experience one day!
To others staying here, take in as much as possible, do the wolf tour, and take a walk to explore further . You won’t regret it.

Had a wonderful time here at Speedwell. The Paymaster suite was as fantastic as promised. The décor…the tub…and I’m a big guy so I really appreciated the size. Loved the wolves—heard them howl Friday night.
Went to our first “mud sale” on Saturday at Penlyn? Very interesting.
Toured Lititz on Saturday also. Bought some antiques and some Wilbur chocolates. A nice hot Sturgis pretzel was great treat too.
Dawn was a great hostess and breakfast was great. Really enjoyed our stay and will tell others.

Thank you both so much for the wonderful stay in your home. You both have done such a lovely job with both the house and the wolves. Breakfast was amazing and we learned so much on the wolf tour. It has been an incredible stay. We hope to visit again in the winter.

Scott and I had a wonderful New Years Eve here. We felt so at home here and Dawn is a Fantastic hostess! The wolves are beautiful. We could have watched them all day! Food and hospitality were all just an added bonus of being here and we are so grateful. Can’t wait to come back once baby is born! He will have to stay at Nanny’s while we getaway over the summer!

Dearest Dawn and Darin,
We really thank you for giving us a wonderful reservation and cottage hotel room! We enjoyed it very much and it gives us a place to escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. This was worth the trip and money we can find! Also this was just the right place to be near The Wolf Sanctuary, for I am in love with these magnificent creatures. You deserve to have best customers!
Thank you so much!!
March 3, 2014 – March 10, 2014
Slept great! Beautiful room, especially the heated floor in bathroom! Love the staff! And of course the wolves!

Anne and Brian
Dear Dawn and Darin,
Thank you for everything. This was an awesome experience. The food was delicious and the wolves are amazing. This was a great weekend getaway.
I’ve never had such an awesome breakfast. Dawn and Darin were so awesome and a special thanks to the cleaning lady for being so great and helpful. Thank you so much for taking care of our messes. We had such a relaxing time being private and enjoying each other and the tub!
The wolves are so totally awesome, with them howling and so awesome to see up close. We will be back and stay in a different cabin. Everything was perfect, comfortable, and relaxing. I don’t have enough words to explain except you must experience it.
I can’t wait to come back again, maybe with a few other friendly couples of my own. This place is awesome. Thank you everyone! I never realized I could learn so much about wolves. Oh one more thing, get the couples’ massage, very awesome!!
Melanie and James
