Speedwell Forge Bed and Breakfast This is a great place to stay. You can visit the sanctuary on off tour times and see the wolves on a more personal level. NO you don’t get to go in and interact with them, but you can sit there and watch all day if you want.

Breakfast is made with your allergies and food restrictions in mind. Be sure to tell your Inn Keeper what you can and cannot have when you make your reservation.

Save Speedwell Forge lake

We would like to give a special thanks to our friends at SaveSpeedwell.org.

For the last year, Save Speedwell has been searching for a practical and cost-efficient way to reuse the soil that will be excavated from the upper basin of Speedwell Forge Lake. The Wolf Sanctuary of PA had a real use for the soil. It makes a big difference at the sanctuary as we are always in need of good clean soil to maintain an excellent environment for the wolves.

Keeping with the theme of Speedwell Forge lake and preserving as well as enhancing the wildlife population in and around the lake:

When Speedwell Forge Lake is refilled with great anticipation next spring, the fish that will be restocked will find a new, improved home. Two sportsmen’s groups, the Lancaster County Bassmasters and the Lititz Sportsmen’s Association, as well as the Save Speedwell citizens group, raised more than $20,000 for fish habitat improvements.

Speedwell Forge Lake will be catch-release for years after it is refilled. The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission voted Tuesday to designate Speedwell Forge and four other lakes similarly being restored as catch-and-release fishing only, indefinitely.

Susan thank you for the countless hours of energy, love and dedication to animals big and small.  You were a shining beckon of strength, beauty and light to us all.  While your time here on this plain was too brief, the gifts you left behind will last an eternity.
