This is one of those out of the way places you hear about and say, Why didn't i know about it?" We booked a room for our anniversary based on the recommendation of a friend and it was a wonderful experience. After a leisurely drive through Amish country we arrived at the drive to Speedwell Forge. After entering a code... More

After breakfast Saturday morning we walked the perimeter and saw a few wolves come up to us at the fenceline. We then went on the complimentary tour... More

The building is incredible. Woodwork that will take your breath away. Immaculate, comfortable, and friendly what else could you want. Plus a great breakfast. And if you stay, you get a tour of the Pennsylvania Wolf Sanctuary. Plus unlimited Wolf watching.

I recently stayed at the Speedwell Forge B&B for the second time and it did not disappoint. From the warm welcome, the delicious breakfast and the amazing onsite wolves, I really enjoyed my stay.

My husband and I stayed at the Speedwell Forge B & B this past weekend and we could not have been more pleased. This historic and rustic setting is perfect. The rooms were absolutely immaculate.

We volunteer at the sanctuary and love staying at the bed and breakfast. We did our volunteer service in the morning, retreated to our relaxing, air conditioned room and then headed to Hershey stadium for a concert. Staying at the inn made the drive home much shorter! We woke to a delicious breakfast and headed down to the sanctuary for... More
