Our second visit to Speedwell Forge was as magical as the first. You, too, will not forget your stay and yearn to return soon. This is an experience not to be missed: a beautiful historic home, lovely grounds to clear your mind, and over 40 rescued wolves that will steal your heart (and even more if you chance to hear them howl). One hint: Try to schedule your visit so that you can take one of the public tours during your stay. You'll learn a lot about each wolf, which will make your walks among them later on more enjoyable.

We came as an anniversary trip. This has been by far the best b&b we have Ever been to. We had gotten the paymaster's suite and it was a dream! Super clean, shower products and the like are eco friendly, something that's Important to both of us. Before the sun went down we were able to walk Around the wolf enclosure, right before we left out of the blue all the wolves started Howling. All parts in the room were really well thought out, then the night outside Was just beautiful! Breakfast came around and Dawn was just out of this world in her Cooking, hospitality and conversation. Completely fabulous! Ended out stay with a group tour. Can't recommend this place more!

The Speedwell Forge B&B is probably the cleanest place we've ever stayed...it was immaculate! We stayed in the "Summer Kitchen" Cottage and loved every minute of it.The owner Dawn is such a sweet and accommodating person and her breakfasts are delicious, especially her homemade granola! The BEST part is having access to the wolves at your leisure and hearing them howl at night is spectacular....We CANNOT wait to return!!!

Our main purpose was to spend some time with the wolves in the sanctuary so we presented each other with this stay for our 54th wedding anniversary. In the late afternoon after arriving we strolled about the lower-level enclosures to watch their behavior as they were fed. Just after sundown we sat on one of the benches and were treated by a legato choral fugue begun by an alto and then joined, in succession, by baritone and bass finally topped off with a soprano descant of yips and yowls. What perfect harmony! Upon retiring we found the room to be provided with every possible comfort, particularly steam heat and mattresses. We were impressed by the quality of the fixtures and the general quality of the restoration of the Inn. Innkeeper Dawn's Grandma whould be quite favorably impressed. Morning brought a superb multiple-course breakfast prepared and served by Dawn with a uniquely tasty first course of homemade granola. Innkeeper Darren then introduced us to their sociable pet, Faelin, a mix of dog, wolf and coyote. We spent the rest of the morning revisiting the wolves and conversing with Dawn and Darren. We found we were kindred spirits in may ways.

The ambiance of the B&B is calming and relaxing. The grounds and buildings are what everyone would expect if they were living in 1760. The high point of our stay at the B&B is the ability to tour the various wolf packs that have been rescued. They are magnificent creatures and we felt a connection with them each time we visited them.
