Wolves! We came to hear and see these noble gifts from nature. But no creature is born for mankind’s sake, but for their own. We are not their owners or masters, but their best guardians. They are attuned to the rhythms of the earth, and are one with it.
Thank you, Speedwell Forge, and your wolf sanctuary which shelters the displaced . Blessings on all of you.

This is not our first B&B but it is the first one we have really enjoyed. The room is pretty and very, very clean- something difficult to find! Dawn and Darin are great and understand that guests need privacy
also, even though they are staying in a B&B. The renovations are wonderful and the breakfast is even better! A great way to start the day and meet new people. My husband can’t wait to come fly fishing in the spring or fall. The wolf sanctuary just makes a great stay even better!
Stephan and Noel
What a lovely estate! We enjoyed every minute of our stay in you awesome home. The wolf encounters were a rewarding and educational experience. Thank you and we will be back! We will spread the word!

Dear Dawn and Darin,
Thank you for a wonderful get away to celebrate and anniversary and get some R & R. We so respect and admire what you’re doing here with your grandparents’ beautiful farm, the B&B (superb!) , and the compassionate, intelligent and creative operation of the wolf sanctuary. The disposition and beautiful condition of the wolves and the high caliber of your volunteers “speaks volumes” We wish you great continued success and look forward to our next visit. Heard the wolves howl again during our evening visit – so neat.
(Notes for future guests: we recommend the Bull’s Head Pub in Lititz for really good food, also Scooters for light lunch, and Wilbur Chocolate exceeded our expectations! But truly for us it was the wolves)

Staying at the B&B has been wonderful. It is beautiful, elegant, and relaxing. Dawn is really great. It feels good to be helping support the sanctuary. Being able to go out and visit the wolves is so great. They howled beautifully. It has been a really wonderful experience. We will be back.

Just to let you know how much we enjoyed our overnight stay at your beautiful B&B. You have a way of making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Your breakfast was so delicious and chatting with you about the history and the wolves of your place was like stepping back in time for a little while.
Taking the tour and seeing your beautiful wolves was something we will never forget. They are such an amazing animal which we have always loved and respected. We can thank my awesome daughter and son-in-law for sharing this with us as our Christmas gift.
We hope to come back again in the near future and spend some relaxing time visiting you and your wolves. Thank you so much for everything Dawn.
