Stunning Scenery at Speedwell Forge
The Speedwell Forge Bed and Breakfast features beautiful grounds in an area full serene, beautiful and stunning secnery. There is no shortage of open country farms, lakes, streams or wetlands in the Amish country here in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
However we encourage our guests to walk the 30+ acres available to our guests, plus the 20 acres of wetlands. The wetlands are a goldmine for wildlife lovers, especially for bird enthusiasts. Just across the road is the Speedwell Forge County nature park, featuring beautiful walking paths in the center of some of Pennsylvania’s most scenic countryside. Just a very short drive, we encourage guests to visit Middle Creek, another scenic and peaceful place to visit during your stay.

What a wonderful treat! We came here for our 12th anniversary. The home and outbuildings are all beautiful.
After our own renovations, we have great respect for the outstanding work that has been accomplished here.
The food was fantastic, especially the coconut oatmeal cookies. We followed a recommendation to eat at Scooters and were not disappointed.
Thanks, Dawn, for sharing all of this with us!

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,
Nancy and John

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.

Wow! This place has all we dreamed about and more! Frank had never experienced snow, and….we got a lovely 4” dusting on Saturday, which was so magical and all the more special, as it was the first for him. The scenery is a snap shot out of Currier and Ives, and a true winter wonderland.
This lovely charming and oh so comfortable cottage is perfectly situated in an area of incredible peace and tranquility….in addition to the expected physical rejuvenation, there is also a spiritual reconnection with nature. And the wolves with their hauntingly beautiful howls, made this all the more spectacular.
Kudos to Dawn for providing such a fantastic and well appreciated cottage, where every need is met. The breakfast in the formal dining room was a true treat to be served. We also loved the hot tub and oh so warm fireplace. What a fantastic way to bring in the new year! Thank you Darin and Dawn, and the wolves for a fabulous experience!

While we travel frequently, this was our first stay at a B&B. We carefully selected this one after checking many out online. We were not disappointed.
The Paymaster’s Office was both cozy and romantic. We enjoyed making our own cheese and then chocolate fondue in the kitchenette on Friday and received massages in our room, followed by a delicious filet mignon dinner prepared/served by Bill Schuler on Saturday. Both added a nice touch to our weekend!
Dawn’s breakfast was yummy both mornings! Thanks for the hospitality and a wonderful romantic weekend!

This was a much needed get away for my boyfriend from his work. It was a surprise for him and he had no clue where we were going. The suite is wonderful, more than I could have wished for. The fireplace is grand. The tub wonderful. We loved the wolves and enjoyed walking the ground. We will be back again
