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 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.

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.

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.

We really enjoyed the additional access to the grounds and the wolves. Our room is absolutely immaculate and food a wonderful cherry on top of a great experience. I hope we return

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

First weekend away (no kids) in four years!! This was the perfect place for it. Not too far away, but it felt very far. Very peaceful. The room was beautiful, breakfast was always a treat! Hope to come try another room, hopefully in less than 4 years!

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.

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,
Jenifer and Dave
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!

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.
Renee and Gary
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.
Debbie and Lisa
One of the most lovely B&B’s we’ve stayed in! Beautiful house, would love to come back for a romantic winter getaway. Thank you so much for the great GF breakfast.

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!

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.

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 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.
