Chris and Spencer are very welcoming. My room was beautiful and super clean with plenty of room, beautiful decor, comfy bed, and tv--I really felt at home. The breakfasts were excellent - Spencer is a great cook. The main area of Tobermory is less than a 10 minute walk away. I will definitely be back! :)

A big thanks to Spenser and Chris for allowing us to spend time in their B&B for a couple of nights. A couple of us in our group were worried about the awkwardness of being in someone else's home but it worked out better than we imagined. Since the two queen room suites are on the back of the house...

We absolutely loved our stay at The Forest House and are already looking forward to returning. Spencer and Chris are so welcoming and very friendly! Although downtown is only a short walk Spencer showed us a short cut. Our party was quite large and we had every room of the b&b. The 2 forest view suites have a joining door...

Very nice house, easy to access, comfort bed and good breakfast. It's just within 10mins walk away from the harbour centre which hide from the noise. Spencer and Chris are so friendly. We will come back for more nights to stay for sure.

My husband and I stayed at the forest house for our anniversary, it was nice, relaxing clean well worth the money. The food was fantastic and breakfast was especially my fav part.

The Forest House B&B is very clean, the people running it were very kind and professional. It's only a few minute walk to all the great places in Tobermory. I am definitely going back and would recommend this place to anyone.

We had a great stay at The Forest House B&B! The location is quiet and private, and within walking distance to Tobermory. The hosts are helpful and friendly - from giving suggestions on what to do, to providing an umbrella when showers hit, and even sharing a toast over our new engagement - they made our stay memorable. The breakfast...

We stayed here because it looked beautiful & serene, and we had heard the breakfast was great. We're so glad we did. We did not realize how crazy busy Tobermory is in the summer. It was nearly impossible to find parking. Then Chris & Spence told us it was a short 7min walk to downtown. Mostly along the water. Fantastic...
