I have never stayed at a B&B before and I was not looking forward to go, but what an amazing surprise I had. The grounds are beautiful. We stayed in the Turret Suite and I just can't describe how lovely it was. The bed was very comfy and just wait until you see your private powder room. At the top... More

Very nice B&B,. Our room was very cozy. The house itself was beautiful. The garden area was very nice. Super friendly staff, and great service. We would stay there again if we were in the area for sure.

From the well tended gardens to the immaculate, tastefully decorated and renovated Victorian charmer to the gracious hosts this B&B wins on all factors. We are early risers and loved having the option of making good fresh coffee to take to our room - the homemade cookies were welcome too! The breakfast was superb, beautifully served in the lovely dining... More

Spectacular is not enough to describe this place. The 1893 house is impeccably renovated. The attention to details is out of this world. Joy and Glen are a dynamic duo who are always ready to serve. The room is gorgeous (we booked the gazebo suite). The bed is sumptuous. The breakfast was a chef-like one. The interaction with other guests... More

My girlfriend and I just spent 2 refreshing nights at this awesome B&B! The owners, Glen and Joy, provided delicious homemade breakfast each morning at a time we chose. They even went the extra mile to cook egg whites and provide non dairy alternatives for my health minded girlfriend. The B&B has 3 rooms each with its own washroom. We... More

My husband and I stayed at the beautiful Through Windows Past B&B in Forest this past weekend and were really blown away at how lovely it was and how thoughtful and attentive the inn keepers were.

We stayed in the "Turret Room" which would be my suggestion to anyone visiting this B&B.Gorgeous and definitely the best room !!!! Bathroom is not an en-suite but a whole other bedroom converted into an en-suite. I actually did not realize from the pictures that this suite included a shower. It does have a walk in shower.

Joy and Glenn (our Hosts) provide the perfect combination of warmth and helpful hospitality with scrumptious breakfasts in a superbly beautiful setting. Their magnificent Victorian home is both grand and comfortable.
