Policies, Terms & Conditions
Take a look at our policies, terms and conditions to learn more about what you should expect when visiting us. We also have general information about your stay listed here.
If you arrive in town early you may want to wander the lovely town of Lititz. Be sure to stop in at the visitor’s center by the Lititz Springs Park for information on the town. Wilbur Chocolate is a must!
Two things you NEED to know!
1) There is a gate in our driveway, the code you will need will be sent to you a few days prior to your arrival. Please keep an eye out for your reminder email.
2) We ask you to please not wear your outside shoes in the cottage. Please bring some comfy house shoes, slippers or warm socks to wear inside. If you forget we are happy to supply you with non-skid socks that you may keep (please just ask).
Check-in time is 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. We do not have a front desk; please make every effort to arrive on time. Your check-in time is important to us, as we schedule our time accordingly. Staff wear many hats here, some handling the evening care of the wolves on site. Late arrivals that have not been prearranged will result in a late fee of $35 per hour. You can opt for a self check in by alerting us when you make your reservation or by calling us prior to your day of check in. We will then send you instructions on how to self check.
Check out time is 11 a.m. If you are signed up for a wolf tour that starts at 10 a.m. you will need to vacate the room prior to your tour unless you have prearranged something with your innkeeper. Check with your innkeeper for details.
A deposit of 50% of your stay will be charged to your credit card at the time your reservation is made. Deposits can only be be made by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or debit cards. Your balance will be charged to your credit card on file three days prior to your arrival. If you would like to use a different form of payment for the balance due, please call your innkeeper as soon as you know.
When a guest makes a reservation for a stay at Speedwell Forge B&B we agree to turn away all other requests for the room you select and you agree to pay the rate quoted for the number of days you reserve it. A small bed and breakfast such as ours is significantly affected by cancellations and we appreciate your consideration of our policies.
We adhere to a strict cancellation policy.
Cancellation deadline is 10 days prior to arrival date of reservation. Cancellations made prior to 10 day arrival deadline will be refunded their deposit less a 10% non refundable cancellation fee to recover bank and credit charges. Cancellations made 10 days or less of your arrival will forfeit their deposit. Cancellations made two days or less of your arrival will be charged the full amount of the reservation unless we are able to re-rent the room to other guests. This includes “No-shows” and premature check-outs.
Vacation Insurance is available from several providers online to inexpensively protect you against unexpected events. We will make every effort to re-sell the room so that you may receive a refund. Note: Longer cancellation periods may be applied to multi-room bookings. Please call for information.
Cancellations must be made directly by calling and speaking to an innkeeper or by e-mail with a confirmed response.
Taxes are subject to change.

Please be sure to alert your innkeeper if you have any dietary restrictions, are vegan or vegetarian, or have other special requirements such as celiac disease, gluten-intolerance, gluten-free diets, hate green things, don’t eat eggs.
