Testimonials for the Summer Kitchen
What a wonderful hideaway. We so enjoyed the quiet calm and occasional howl! Breakfast was fantastic and the cottage is where we want to retire. Thanks for everything,
Matt and Paula
I’ve never had such an awesome breakfast. Dawn and Darin were so awesome and a special thanks to the cleaning lady for being so great and helpful. Thank you so much for taking care of our messes. We had such a relaxing time being private and enjoying each other and the tub!
The wolves are so totally awesome, with them howling and so awesome to see up close. We will be back and stay in a different cabin. Everything was perfect, comfortable, and relaxing. I don’t have enough words to explain except you must experience it.
I can’t wait to come back again, maybe with a few other friendly couples of my own. This place is awesome. Thank you everyone! I never realized I could learn so much about wolves. Oh one more thing, get the couples’ massage, very awesome!!

My husband & I are celebrating our 10th anniversary here- the first guests at Speedwell Forge B&B! Went for a short hike nearby, and saw kayakers and a small toad. (they were not together) Lovely touches: rubber duckie, wilbur buds, plush robes.
It is our last day here at the B&B. I hope we come back sometime. I think this is a great hotel. I love the rubber ducky and the whirlpool bath. I also love the chocolate. We went to Hershey Park yesterday. It was fun. Kate
Really enjoyed our stay – will visit again but always to the summer kitchen
We love to stay here. Speedwell is the best place to stay. Love the wolves and visiting to see all the great things you have done and have planned.
Thanks again and hope to see you again soon,

We had a wonderful stay in your beautifully restored home. We especially liked all of the extra little touches throughout. (and of course the breakfast also). The grounds are also lovely. Look forward to returning.

Dear Dawn and Darin,
Thank you for your hospitality. Staying in the Summer Kitchen was very well appreciated. The restoration of these historic buildings makes them homey and well preserved for the future.
To visit the wolf sanctuary was a birthday present from my wife. To see and be so close to the animals has left a deep impression behind.
We enjoyed breakfast and the little conversations every morning during our stay.
Thank you again and all the best for the future.
