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.

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.

This was a 5 Star visit. I feel like a renewed person. Thank you for providing this haven of rest, peace and friendship. The food was delicious!! I enjoyed being here.
My husband booked this room to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary mainly because a gluten free breakfast was offered. I am so glad he did! This place is beautiful. The grounds are peaceful and the wolves were very interesting to watch. The breakfast was beyond amazing! Our room was homey and very comfortable. Thank you for making our stay enjoyable and for accommodating my dietary needs!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Dan and Arlene
We had a very relaxing stay at your Bed and Breakfast. The room was beautiful and the living areas were cozy and delightful. The moonlight wolf tour was the highlight of our stay. We will definitely be back for more!

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!

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.

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
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…
Bob and Bobbie,
We had a great stay. Your home is beautiful and the wolves also.

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.
A delightful stay and touring of the area. The rolling countryside offers the first glimpses of the Autumn colors. The hospitality is of first quality with delightful culinary fare and conversation. An excellent relaxing stay with the right mixture of local flare.

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.
Marc and Chrisitne
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!

What an extraordinary visit. A rare combination of hospitality, sanctuary, and food made for a great experience! Thanks for the memory
Dave and Carole
The room and all of its furnishings are gorgeous. I enjoyed all of the small homey gestures like the make-up remover wipes, scented soaps and fans. You are a wonderful host and the breakfast you served was one of my favorite parts of the day because it was so yummy and refreshing company.
Thank you for all you do!
December 29, 2012
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.

Our time here went so fast. Loved the wolves and the educational tour with Dan. Dawn and Darin were very friendly and their home is beautiful. The breakfasts were super. Will recommend to our B&B friends
Fran and Sally
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.
