Can't wait to go back to Speedwell Forge B&B

5 on July 09, 2014

Everything about the forge was perfect! We stayed in the Paymaster's Cabin: quiet, private, clean, amazing whirlpool tub. Dawn is a fantastic host, and her cooking was beyond belief! If you stay at the forge you get free range of the wolf preserve at any time, so we were able to see them on a more personal level without the crowds. We are already planning our next trip!

A night in The Paymaster's cabin

4.6 on July 07, 2014

Darin and Dawn and the wolves made our stay at their home comfortable, entertaining and educational. Who could ask for more?

Sleeping at the Wolf Sanctuary

4.0 on June 07, 2014

The rooms were nice it not above average for a bed and breakfasts. Breakfast was also delicious, but not anymore outstanding then other places. What was outstanding was Dawn's desire to help in any way, her willingness to accommodate vegans and the wonderful Wolf Sanctuary.

Awesome get away

4.6 on June 06, 2014

This was a charming get away. The summer kitchen was well worth the cost to stay for two evenings. I have to praise the owner and her staff for making the weekend extra special. Everyone was very nice and Dawn goes out of her way to make sure everyone has everything that they need. The wolves on the property are awesome. I would recommend you take the tour of the sanctuary while you are there. The volunteers were very informative. I would definitely recommend this for a quiet, out of the way retreat.

Anniversary Stay

5 on June 05, 2014

Dawn was the nicest hostess we could have asked for. We love the wolf sanctuary and finally decided to stay overnight. We chose the summer kitchen cottage and we absolutely loved it! Everyone on site was so pleasant and answered all our questions about the history and the wolves. Thank you Dawn!
