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.

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

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.

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.

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.
Wayne and Joyce
Thank you for the delicious vegan breakfast! I love old homes and what you’ve done here is magnificent!!

Lovely evening and morning! Thanks for the delightful breakfast and company. Beautiful spot!
Paul and Abby
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!

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.

This was our first stay at a B&B, and what a wonderful experience. Wolves are my favorite animals and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting with them. Thank you for a wonderful weekend, our birthdays this weekend are and will be a fantastic memory- we will be back!!
Monique and Jim
Wonderful, peaceful stay. Food was wonderful. Thanks for the gluten free. Always great to see the beautiful wolves.

We’ve had a lovely stay. Quite an unexpected experience in the middle of our longer trip. Will be recommending the B&B.

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.

I can’t imagine Kathy’s Valentine Day present turning out any better. The home is warmly furnished and beautifully restored. Our favorite time during our stay was breakfast. Great tasting food, wonderful presentation, and casual conversation. We will most certainly return for another stay.

We had a wonderful time at the B&B. Dawn is a fantastic hostess! Breakfast was delicious and the company was enjoyable. The wolves add the extra oomf to the B&B. One of our favorite places away from home.
Thank you for a wonderful Birthday weekend,

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.

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 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.
We received this overnight stay as a Christmas gift. The Kathryn room is great. Seeing the wolves was amazing. Thank you for giving us a great time. Everything was perfect.

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.

Enjoyed our stay! Loved “visiting” with the wolves. Beautiful setting to relax in. Loved reading the “new” versions of the “Three Little Pigs” Very amusing!
Ted and Carol
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.

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.

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
We had a great stay. Your home is beautiful and the wolves 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.

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.

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.

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!
Brian and Kimmy
Beautiful estate and fascinating habitat for wolves! We appreciated the solitude and woodland ambiance!

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!

Breakfast- mmmm. Thank you for everything
