This is not our first B&B but it is the first one we have really enjoyed. The room is pretty and very, very clean- something difficult to find! Dawn and Darin are great and understand that guests need privacy
also, even though they are staying in a B&B. The renovations are wonderful and the breakfast is even better! A great way to start the day and meet new people. My husband can’t wait to come fly fishing in the spring or fall. The wolf sanctuary just makes a great stay even better!

Once again we had an amazing time. We are totally relaxed and ready to share Christmas with our 3 beautiful children. We relaxed and ate very well here. This is a little gem. We will return again.

Happy Birthday to me!! What an absolutely beautiful, wondrous place to stay, especially after seeing the wolf tour today.
Thank you, Dawn, for your hospitality and humor, and for having the foresight and fortitude to restore so much of this incredible property. And for saving these wolves…

Dear Dawn and family,
I can’t thank you enough for restoring this mansion and keeping the wolf sanctuary going. This place is healing. I’ve met new friends and made lasting memories. Sorry for the cheesiness, but it’s true.

This has been a wonderful experience. What a great get away for our 23rd wedding anniversary!
Speedwell Forge is an elegant reminder of days past. Our stay in the Paymaster’s Suite was relaxing and romantic.
Spending time with the wolves was such a humbling and exciting opportunity. Every person we met who is dedicated to protecting these magnificent animals has been very friendly and eager to share the wolves’ stories. It has made our time here richer.
Delicious food! Thank you, Dawn, for opening your home to us.
We look forward to our return trip,

This was our 9th anniversary get away and ended up being far more than we had ever anticipated.
Your cooking is fantastic!! And your wolves (wolf sanctuary) were absolutely amazing. They are such an intriguing animal.
Thank you for everything. We had a wonderful (not even a good enough word to describe) stay.

Thank you Dawn for a wonderful stay this weekend!
Everything was more than wonderful, from breakfasts to our massages, and absolute must while you’re here. Dinner at Scooters was very good. We recommend Kettle chips as an appetizer. Of course, the wolves- they are amazing- they get great care and we loved “their songs.” AMAZING STAY- We’ll be back! Thanks again,
Snook and Robin
What she said! Thank you to my beautiful wife for this get away. Sitting in the morning on the bench just watching the timber wolves makes the rest of the world disappear. Listening to them sing, it’s like they are celebrating life. Look into their eyes and you can see the beauty of the soul.

Wow! The wonder of wolves! We came to celebrate our first anniversary and cannot believe this amazing treasure we have found. We were immediately fascinated by the intelligence of the wolves on our tour. But having the opportunity to return to spend time with them even more was beyond what we could ask for. We went running with the L-Boys up and down the hill and had the chance to really look into their eyes.
The Paymaster’s Cottage really feels like a home away from home and without all of the stressors too! Dawn has really outdone herself with making sure you have all the comforts of home. It has been an amazing time and we cannot wait to return for another visit! Off for another walk with the wolves! Thank you!
