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.

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,

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.
Wonderful, peaceful stay. Food was wonderful. Thanks for the gluten free. Always great to see the beautiful wolves.

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.
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

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,

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!

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.

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.

We had a great time. Peaceful and relaxing. We loved the room and the breakfasts. The wolves were awesome. Thank you for a great weekend. Looking forward to a return visit.
Joe and Deb
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!
Thank you for the delicious vegan breakfast! I love old homes and what you’ve done here is magnificent!!

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.
Thomas and Rebecca
Thank you for having us in your lovely home. It is so peaceful here. Breakfast was delicious!

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.

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.
