The master bedroom at our Pennsylvania Dutch Country Bed and Breakfast is bright and airy, with a high ceiling, large windows, and detailed woodworking.
The room features a super comfortable queen-size bed with an open canopy, romantic fireplace, and a hand-carved corner closet.
- Queen-size bed
- Private bath
- Romantic all weather fireplace
- Free Wireless Internet Access
- Cable TV and DVD player and a wide selection of movies
- A full three-course breakfast
There are two comfortable chairs, but you’ll probably spend more time curled up in one of the deep window ledges. The views are lovely any time of the year, especially in the morning as the birds welcome the new day.
$180 per night plus tax
While you are here be sure to visit the amazing Wolf Sanctuary of PA which is located on our grounds. Learn more about the sanctuary by visiting the website.
The bathroom originally had a large walk-in closet and tiny bathtub. In changing the layout, we were able to match the original 1940s tile exactly, and we installed radiant floor heat underneath, so the bathroom is warm and inviting all year long.

Thank you for the privilege of spending my wedding night in your room. Breakfast was great. Sorry we did not stay longer, but we have a lot of running around to do, post wedding stuff.

Awesome, awesome as usual! The wolves are so magnificent. After running in the Boston Marathon on Monday with the bombings, this was just the retreat I needed. Breakfast was incredible. Can’t wait to come back!!

We are so happy to have discovered Speedwell Forge…. Loved staying in Kathryn’s room, the beautiful restoration of the house, the grounds, the out buildings, and the peaceful tranquility of the situation. And the wolves! What a unique experience to be able to watch them in all their magnificence. We will be back! Memorable

As I begin to write I look out the window and see evidence of the rolling hills of Pennsylvania and a wonderful husky snoozing or just relaxing below. My vantage point is from a restored historical house, done with care and maintained with love from one generation to the next. All is well here and Pat and I are better from our short stay. Good food, good people, in a wonderful setting. We pledge to return again with some friends.

What a truly amazing experience! Your home is beautiful and we so enjoyed the delicious breakfasts! It was great to share a meal with the volunteers of the sanctuary, who has stories to share about the magical wolves just steps from our door.
The wolves were a true delight. We enjoyed meeting each and every one of them. What an amazing gift you are sharing with the world.
Steve and Marsha
P.S. Be back soon!
This place left us howling at the moon with pleasure! Dawn and Lisa and rest of folks at Speedwell Forge all wonderful. Look forward to “adopting” Lucas.

Sitting in the window with the morning sun shining in, looking across the beautiful snow covered yard. How amazingly calming it is here. Truly Dawn and Darin, you are blessed to be able to share so much nature and history with others. Dawn your breakfast was amazing and surely a treat for all whom are fortunate to discover your little piece of heaven. Last night just made us feel so alive when moon full and the packs singing and fire blazing. You both do a wonderful job.

Lovely, Peaceful, Tranquil, Educational… these words come to mind when one stays here. Amidst the serenity of the very grounds itself, one can be rejuvenated and perhaps discover some things about nature and her magnificent wonder.

Celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Snow reminded us of the blizzard in 1962 when we shared our vows.
The wolves helped us celebrate by howling at the full moon. Your B&B was the crowning touch.

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,
Steve and Beth
My thoughtful sweet loving sister brought me here to this beautiful mansion as a surprise for my birthday with two other girlfriends. It’s my second time at the sanctuary and my first time at the bed and breakfast. I enjoyed the privilege of viewing the wolves after hours and the newly formed packs not yet on the tour.
The mansion has been beautifully renovated and our weekend here has been peaceful, relaxing, and invigorating.
Dawn offered tremendous hospitality and the renovations very accommodating. I will truly hold my memories of my special weekend in my heart forever.
Breakfast was very good with a healthy variety of awesomeness. Enjoyed the social gathering. Hope to return and will pass on to friends.

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.

What a wonderful place! We thoroughly enjoyed the room (fireplace and tub!), the breakfasts (yummy!) and the company. Sorry to be leaving so soon. It’s very cozy and relaxing here and we’ll be sure to come back in the spring yet to see the wolves- last thing to do before we leave.
Thanks Dawn and Darin for the hospitality. You made us feel at home.
Susan and Pat
What a lovely surprise this has been! My husband too, planned this for my birthday to celebrate our anniversary. I had no clue as to where we were going. All he said was that we were staying at a B&B and he also “howled!” That did nothing to give it away, since I did not know about this place. So… imagine my excitement as we pulled up to the gates!!
The tour was our first time and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Chuck, our guide, was so knowledgeable. I now want to do my own reading and research on wolves. The opportunity to roam the grounds and trails added to the enjoyment (though at our ages we huffed and puffed going up and down the hills).
Needless to say, we are looking forward to Dawn’s breakfast, that we have already heard is “to die for!” will let you know afterwards.
Breakfast was yummy!! And the conversation was very enjoyable! Dawn was a wonderful hostess and innkeeper!
We would definitely return here again. This has been a lovely getaway!

Magical. Be sure to go to the top of the hill and talk to the dark wolf. He will howl with you and when the others howl, you are lifted above the earth.
December 28, 2013
Thank you for your hospitality. We felt very “at home” and welcome. The food was delicious and we loved your beautiful home, grounds and seeing the wolves! Thank you so much!

My husband and I had a wonderful time here. Very relaxing and the wolf sanctuary is unbelievable! We loved connecting with them. We felt very welcome and the whole house gives off an energy of warmth and love. Breakfast was amazing and they were very accommodating to all my annoying dietary needs. We will definitely be back.

Dawn and Darin,
We had a wonderful time staying at this B&B. It was great seeing the wolves and learning how they live. You have great hospitality, and you went out of your way to accommodate us since we came on the wrong weekend. Oops! It was great meeting you and your staff.
Thank you for the wonderful stay,
Brent and Darlene
This visit was a surprise to celebrating my 67th birthday. What an enjoyable time. Appreciated Dawn’s desire to make our wishes come true. I always have steak and eggs on my birthday and wouldn’t you know when she found that out, she made steak and egg pie for breakfast.
May God’s blessings be present and felt by each guest.
