The Speedwell Forge Bed and Breakfast features beautiful grounds in an area full of stunning scenery. 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.

Dawn and Darin,

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!

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!

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 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.

Many thanks & warm regards,

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

This was a fantastic Valentine’s Day. We had a wonderful time seeing the wolves again. We felt very welcomed. The room was incredible! Christopher asked me to marry him up on the hill, so it definitely will be a night to remember! Thanks so much!
