Testimonials for the Summer Kitchen
Dear Dawn and Darin,
Thank you for a wonderful get away to celebrate and anniversary and get some R & R. We so respect and admire what you’re doing here with your grandparents’ beautiful farm, the B&B (superb!) , and the compassionate, intelligent and creative operation of the wolf sanctuary. The disposition and beautiful condition of the wolves and the high caliber of your volunteers “speaks volumes” We wish you great continued success and look forward to our next visit. Heard the wolves howl again during our evening visit – so neat.
(Notes for future guests: we recommend the Bull’s Head Pub in Lititz for really good food, also Scooters for light lunch, and Wilbur Chocolate exceeded our expectations! But truly for us it was the wolves)

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.

Really enjoyed our stay – will visit again but always to the summer kitchen
What a warm and happy place to spend a few days! Dawn and Darin were so welcoming and thoughtful. They managed to think of non-eggy breakfasts for my picky husband. So delicious! They gave us great advice on where to go in the area:
-September Farms (cheese and pickles)
-Intercourse canning company
– and of course wolf tour!
Thank you for an unforgettable weekend! Much love and many thanks
