Place is ok, but very basic breakfast with nothing warm except 1 hard boiled egg. Great looking backyard with campfire ready to use but access to backyard is forbidden to guests. Definitely overpriced! Owner forces you to sign a rental agreement which is abusive, in that it is a one-way protection for the owners, and then threatens eviction if you do not sign. The agreement gives the owners the right to charge any amount on the credit card they have on file in case of damage to property. Also forces you to agree to not sue the owners in the event that you have an accident on their property.

Hi Iluvtravels101, thanks for taking the time to write a review of our property.....again. This is the 3rd review that you and your husband have wrote regarding a single stay. For anyone interested the other 2 reviews about this one stay are on google under the names Nancy and Francois. Originally you booked through booking.com then you canceled as you forgot you had a "wedding" to attend. Our standard cancelation fee was charged. Instead of paying the fee you asked if you could re-instate your booking, which we allowed (we were not obligated to allow this). So I guess this wedding you were supposed to attend wasn't that important or maybe just made up. Also we do have a standard rental agreement. This outlines both our responsibilities as hosts and your responsibilities as guests. This is similar to any rental agreement that you sign at any hotel. We wish you the best in the future and hope to not hear from you again....a 4th time.

We spent 2 nights at The Forest House and it exceeded all of our expectations! From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. The room was incredibly clean, including the fresh towels and linens. The location was quiet and the fact it was nestled in the trees and away from the main road was wonderful. Christopher was friendly and helpful, and the pre-ordered breakfasts delivered in the morning were fresh and added a personal touch to the experience. We would love to come back!

My partner and I spent 4 nights at the B&B and we believe it is the best place to stay in Tobermory! Very close to the center (about a 10min walk, half of it by the water so super nice) but far enough to have a calm stay away from the crowds. Our Forest View Suite with a king bed was very confortable, included a useful little fridge and the bathroom was clean and beautifully decorated! Chris and Spencer are very nice and available and always ready to answer any question/share their best recommendations for the area. And special mention to the breakfast!!! Great coffee, large selection of choices (fruits, granola, nuts, quiches, yogurt etc.) and amazing freshly baked croissants (Spencer you rock!)!! Thanks again so much guys!

We really lucked out when we had to cancel our international travel plans and were able to snag the last August availability at the Forest House! Christopher & Spencer are extremely considerate & professional, and The Forest House is set up perfectly to support social distancing & privacy. Our suite had its own small patio where I enjoyed breakfast everyday, and a private entrance. Bathroom & main room are separated by a small private hallway, which meant my husband could blissfully sleep in while I went back & forth 18 times having a shower, reading a bit of newspaper, brushing my teeth, checking my messages, etc etc as I like to do in the morning. It’s an easy & scenic walk from the property to Big Tub Harbour for dining, swimming, catching the ferry for a boat tour. We didn’t have to drive once! We’ll definitely be back assuming we can find someone to babysit our kids again 🤞🤞🤞

My husband and I took a mini vacation at Tobermory and stayed at this B&B. The place was immaculate, the rooms very comfortable and breakfast was nice. This is a family ran business. They take great care of all the details. The rooms have been recently renovated and tastefully decorated. Chris was very helpful providing suggestions to make our Tobermory experience a very special one. Highly recommended
