Restored in 2006, Speedwell Forge Bed and Breakfast in Lititz, Pennsylvania features guestrooms that include private bath, central air and wireless Internet. We have two cottages that feature a fireplace and whirlpool tub and another cottage that has radiant floor heat and a luxury aquatic air tub for two. Located on a 120-acre farm between Wolf Sanctuary of PA and a peaceful natural park, Speedwell Forge Bed & Breakfast is the perfect place to get away from it all, yet only minutes from the historic small towns of Lititz, Ephrata, and all of Pennsylvania Dutch County.

The Paymaster's Office, a private cottage with king-sized bed, whirlpool bath, vaulted ceiling, and gas fireplace, is the ultimate romantic getaway. The Summer Kitchen suite, a two-story cottage with a queen bed upstairs and a twin day bed downstairs, is ideal for friends or family vacations. The Whyte House with its full living room, full kitchen, king size bed and luxury bath is perfect for that extended stay or just two nights of pampered pleasure.

This is an amazing place with lots of history and beautiful all around. we spent our 35th wedding anniversary here and it was one of the best places we stayed at. The grounds were lovely to walk around, our cottage, "the Whyte House" was incredible with stories behind it. Our host and hostess, Dawn and Dennis are such down to earth people. Dawn's cooking was sooo good that I told our son who is a chef, said, Ma when can I go! It sounds like a menu I could learn from. The wolves are so beautiful and soo loved. My husban and I fell in love with them and Dawn and Dennis too. I would recommend this place to everybody! We loved it!

This was a very last minute decision to stay at a B&B for our Anniversary and we are so thankful that we chose Speedwell Forge. The Inn was beautiful inside and out. The owner Diane was so friendly and attended to our every need. Our only regret is that we did not stay another night. We were so impressed with all the care and love that has been put into restoring this lovely Inn. We have made it our mission to spread the word and tell our friends about Speedwell. We can not wait to go again for my birthday. Also, you have to see and hear the Wolves at the Sanctuary located behind the Inn. They are amazing animals and just like the Inn, you can see how much care goes into making sure the Wolves have a safe and happy place to call home.

While the room was adequate, the bathroom was very modern, the lighting in both rooms was very poor. Not bright enough for reading or doing make-up and the only mirror was above the bathroom sink. Rated the food a two-star because neither day served little or no protein items and food selections were unusual.

Response
Thank you for your sharing. I will certainly be sure to get a second reading light and mirror for Kathryn's room. Yes, you are right my breakfasts are unusual to say the least. Thank you!

My wife and I stayed in the Paymaster's Office Suite at Speedwell Forge Inn on our recent visit to Lancaster County PA. We had seen the inn's website and had already been impressed, but the moment we set foot on the property our expectations were exceeded exponentially. Dawn was a gracious hostess,her aid with our itinerary most helpful, the breakfasts were delicious and well presented, and the property itself was wonderful. Plus Lititz and the surrounding area were beautiful offering a wealth of options to spend our time. The Paymaster's Office was absolutely perfect with the fireplace and the jacuzzi tub. Our stay was to celebrate no particular occasion, but Speedwell Forge Inn is the type of place that will make ANY visit SPECIAL. We definitely hope to return to visit Dawn and the Speedwell Forge Inn again and certainly will reccomend to our friends and relatives.

This was my 10 year old son and my first stay at a B&B and we both loved it! The house is so warm and comfortable and inviting, and Dawn is such a welcoming hostest. The breakfast was delicious (even for my rather picky son!). While we originally stayed in order to be close to the wolves, we would come back just to stay at the house. A wonderful treat!

Speedwell Forge is by far one of the best kept secrets in the MidAtlantic states. Dawn Darlington takes great pride in her B&B and it shows!!! The wolf sanctuary is an added bonus.
