Beautiful place to be lucky enough to stay. Dawn is so friendly and makes one feel welcome. Spotless rooms– well appointed- Dawn thought of everything to make us happy and comfortable. Beautiful home!
We had a howling good time! The B&B was beautiful and the hosts and staff were friendly and gracious. May all wolves live long and prosper…

Quiet, peaceful, serene…. The whole place is beautiful. The food and hospitality were wonderful. Experiencing the wolves was out of this world. Mike was in “7th Heaven” and could have spent the whole weekend with them. A great way to celebrate a 25th Anniversary. We look forward to coming back.

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!
Scott and Erin

Thank you Dawn for a wonderful stay this weekend!
Everything was more than wonderful, from breakfasts to our massages, and absolute must while you’re here. Dinner at Scooters was very good. We recommend Kettle chips as an appetizer. Of course, the wolves- they are amazing- they get great care and we loved “their songs.” AMAZING STAY- We’ll be back! Thanks again,
Snook and Robin
What she said! Thank you to my beautiful wife for this get away. Sitting in the morning on the bench just watching the timber wolves makes the rest of the world disappear. Listening to them sing, it’s like they are celebrating life. Look into their eyes and you can see the beauty of the soul.
Dear Dawn and Darin,
What a wonderful gem you have built! The pancakes alone were worth the visit! We missed the wolf tour but will be back for the full moon experience…
Thanks for a great weekend,
Jasmine and Dirk
Another wonderful stay! This is our getaway place and love it! So relaxing, beautiful, good people, great food. So happy to have found your B&B! Will be back soon.

What a wonderful B&B ! The home and property are absolutely beautiful. Your hospitality is second to none. We enjoyed talking with you and learning of your love for the wolves. They are very interesting animals. We got to experience the pack howling, that was amazing. All in all, a fantastic experience. We will share our thoughts with friends and family. I am sure you will have others from the family headed your way.
Thanks and God bless you,

A wonderful interesting stay. It is amazing that you could “see the bones” of the place, and bring it back from the brink- without losing sight of where you wanted to go.
The wolf work is important stuff.

Stay here was a wonderful experience. We loved the house, felt warm and cozy. The private tour of the wolves made it that much more special. Breakfast was amazing. The heated floor was cool. Lol! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend our honeymoon.
We’ll be back again.
Kevin and Letsy
This was our first B&B stay, and it was so wonderful! I can’t even imagine going to a normal chain hotel after this for a weekend getaway, you’ve set the bar so high. My husband fell in love with the wolves, he said seeing them is one of the coolest things he has ever done. Breakfast was also amazing and the house is beautiful. We will definitely be back!
Jessica and Kyle
What an outstanding weekend we had here at the summer Kitchen. The meals were wonderful and the advice on where to visit in town was extremely helpful. We are grateful that we finally got to stay here after numerous visits.
Thank you for everything!
Chris and Trish
We really enjoyed our little getaway! The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. Even though we took the wolf tour a couple years ago, we learned new things about them. Thanks for including the tour in our reservations!
Blessings to you and the wonderful work you and your family do for the wolves.

Dawn and Darin,

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

What a wonderful experience we had. A fabulous idea to have the B&B on the same property as the wolf sanctuary. Hearing the wolves howl was awesome. Breakfast was delicious. The tour was great and informative.
I could not have asked for anything nicer for our 20th Wedding Anniversary!

Wonderful house. Enjoyed running with the wolves last night.

Many thanks to Dawn for a warm welcome, a comfortable stay, a yummy breakfast, a beautiful setting, and for her tireless work in taking care of this awesome place. I am struck most by her love of the family history, her strong interest in continuing her father’s legacy- the wolf sanctuary. Knowing as I do how little $ is available from public sources, Dawn and Darin, you are heroes to these animals, who otherwise would have other place.
Thank you so much for a lovely, lively time.
Betsy and Graham
We enjoyed our stay so much! Food was terrific and cottage so comfortable. Also enjoyed and meeting all the wolves. Hope to be back someday.
