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.
$215 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.
Testimonials for Kathryn’s Room
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.

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

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.

P.S. Be back soon!

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.
Ron and I had a lovely stay here. The bed and breakfast is beautiful – lovely home and serene, picturesque surroundings. Your hospitality was delightful and the breakfasts were amazing! We had a fantastic weekend and are looking forward to the wolf tour this morning. We will be back – hopefully very soon!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

Had a really wonderful time. Very clean and cozy. The wolves were an added bonus. Definitely going to re-visit but stay for a longer time

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.

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!

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,

Back at Speedwell for the fifth time (our second say in this wonderful room) and we certainly are made to feel like family. Spent yesterday “stimulating the local economy” at the outlets topped off with a stop at Lancaster Brewing Company for “victuals and libations.” Highly recommended. Try the Hop Hog IPA or the Billy Bock. Today we continued the local economy rescue by visiting the shops at Brickerville and downtown Lititz. Had an early dinner with new friends Ed and Christine (whom we met over breakfast) and then attended the full moon tour. As always the wolves were fantastic. Once again, we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here at Speedwell Forge and the surrounding area. And again, I am certain we will return.

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.

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.
