We stayed here specifically so we could have more time to look at the wolves, but now that we've been there, we will totally return just to stay at one of the cottages! Everything was immaculate, and the cottage was a delight. Beautiful, comfortable, private - great weekend getaway. plus WOLVES!!

My wife and I visited for a overnight getaway and really loved Speedwell Forge! Quiet, relaxing, and peaceful - it was great to unwind. Our only regret was only having one night to spend there, next time we will try to make a weekend out of it. Our cabin was clean and cozy, breakfast in the morning in the mansion...

Just got back from Speedwell Forge B&B and Wolf Sanctuary. This was my husband and my second visit. We saw a show in Hershey the first time and in Reading the second time. When we went to Hershey, we were looking for a B&B fairly close to Hershey and I found Speedwell Forge and as a HUGE added bonus there...

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...

We recently stayed two nights in Kathryn's Room and had a wonderful time. We're not really animal people but we both agreed the wolf sanctuary was our favorite part of the whole weekend. 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...

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 friend and I stayed in the Boys Room and it is very very quiet. I never heard any other guests in the house and slept...

We stayed at this B&B again in early Oct at the Whyte house. This is a house on the grounds and is a jewel. Full kitchen and comfortable sitting room and bedroom.

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.

The Summer Kitchen Cottage at Speedwell Forge is everything that you hope for in a B&B. I couldn't have asked for more within a historic rustic setting. The service is excellent!
