This was our first weekend getaway together and we couldn’t be happier with our choice to stay here. The summer kitchen has been amazing and provided us with some much needed relaxation. Your breakfast was delicious, and your wolves are beautiful. Thank you for having us.

We made it to 5 years in a row! Each year we love it more. Thank you for the amazing raw vegan food! Let’s see if I’m still doing that next year.
We really enjoyed our two night stay this year. So great to be past the new born baby stage of life. Good times, but so much work! That is why it is great to come here for a rest!
Have an awesome year and we might see you again before the next one if we make it in December again.

Outstanding B&B in a beautiful setting; friendly, informative, helpful people; excellent breakfasts and fascinating, magnificent wolves. What could be better! Looking forward to returning.
Dear Dawn and Darin,
Thank you for your hospitality. Staying in the Summer Kitchen was very well appreciated. The restoration of these historic buildings makes them homey and well preserved for the future.
To visit the wolf sanctuary was a birthday present from my wife. To see and be so close to the animals has left a deep impression behind.
We enjoyed breakfast and the little conversations every morning during our stay.
Thank you again and all the best for the future.

This was a great surprise for my husband’s 73rd birthday. He has always been a fan of wolves and was so impressed to see the wolves protected and able to live out their lives with such dedicated caretakers. Thank you Dawn, for your welcome and care with your guests.

Dear Dawn and Darin,
Once again we really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful B&B. We enjoyed the full moon tour. Thanks for the wonderful breakfast. Also, many many thanks again for everything you do for the wolves to provide them a safe haven. We also enjoyed Faelan with his sweet sweet personality. We will continue to keep your mom in our thoughts. We look forward to returning soon.

Once again we so enjoyed our stay. Thanks for opening your home so that others can come and enjoy your wonderful hospitality. It is so beautiful here and the snow was extra icing on the cake. Speaking of cake, thanks for the wonderful breakfast and treats. This was the most active we have ever seen the wolves. What a gift to see them in the snow and be so content. Sarge was a good “girl” this trip here- ha ha.
We look forward to returning soon. Again thanks for all you and Darin and your entire staff do for the wolves. We so appreciate your hard work and total dedication. We hope Darin’s finger heals good.
