Relaxing at Speedwell Forge

5 on December 17, 2014

From the scrumptious breakfast to the majestic wolves, Speedwell Forge B&B is truly a find!! The ability to relax and explore the outdoors is abundant! Quaint Lititz is a short drive and offers excellent shopping and dining options. If you want to visit the sanctuary, this is the place to stay!

Amazing experience

5 on December 14, 2014

Visited the wolves over Halloween. It was our first visit. What an amazing experience. We truly enjoyed everything. Dawn is an amazing cook and we both loved the wonderful breakfast conversations. After breakfast each morning we did the wolf tour. It was incredible and the guides were very knowledgeable. We also walked around every chance we got and it was very peaceful. The Paymaster's cottage is a great. Love the fireplace and the large soaking tub. The decadence package was a nice addition. The gluten free breads Dawn made were to die for. The couples massage very relaxing. Highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. You will never regret staying here. Before the weekend was over we had already booked our next stay.

This was our first bed and breakfast experience. It was wonderful. Felt very much at home. The hosts made us feel welcome and were very knowledgable of the history of the property and surroundings. Would recommend to others.

Unique and Wonderful

Friendly down to earth owners/hosts. They accommodated every request and were delightful in addition. Exceptionally clean room with every need taken care of. An unreal opportunity to experience beautiful buildings, atmosphere and landscape. Would not hesitate to recommend to others or stay there again!

My girlfriend and I located this B&B after we found the wolf sanctuary. We were not disappointed. The location was outstanding and we were well accommodated. My girlfriend is particular about what she can and cannot eat and our host worked around it without a problem. The wolves were outstanding as well! I will be going again for sure.

Too good to e true - but it is!!!!

This B & B was outstanding the first time I was there, and it gets better each time. I rate it "OUTSTANDING PLUS++++", and their enclosures for the wolves are more spectacular every time. Dorothy Velthaus, Oyster Bay, New York

A great stay at a wonderful place!

This is truly one of those magical places that you don't want to miss.

It is not only the wolves who find sanctuary at Speedwell Forge. It is truly a sanctuary for all who enter the gates.

This is my second time to Speedwell Forge B&B in 3 months! We stayed in the Summer Kitchen and it was absolutely awesome. Dawn does an excellent job as hostess and the Wolf Sanctuary is well worth the visit. Just to be educated on the wolves and be able to walk out and see them adds to the experience if you are a wolf lover as I! Highly recommend to anyone in the area or looking for a night or two to get away and the summer kitchen provides nice privacy.
