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
You opened your wonderful home to strangers and made us feel like being home. Your hospitality was inconceivable.
The wolves were fascinating and we have spent much of the time to watch these magnificent animals.
Thank you for this beautiful sanctuary, not only for wolves, but also for people.

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.

This was our first weekend getaway together and we couldn’t be happier with our choice to stay here. The summer kitchen has been amazing and provided us with some much needed relaxation. Your breakfast was delicious, and your wolves are beautiful. Thank you for having us.
