We had the Gazebo room and it was simply lovely; spacious and full of lovely little touches. We loved that there was water and... More

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. My husband actually... More

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. Over the past 4 years on our quarterly visits to our older cousin ( who lives in a retirement home nearby), we have stayed here over a dozen times,... More

We had a wonderful time staying at Windows Past. Glenn and Joy were so accommodating and the breakfasts were out of this world. We were visiting our son and family who lived a block away just before Christmas and it worked out beautifully. We were reminded of a Trish Romance picture when we stayed in this lovely home. It was... More

We stayed two nights here as we were in town for the Homemade Jam Music Festival in July which was being held at a beautiful park just a short walk from this B&B. My husband and I had never stayed in a B&B before our visit and both agree that we have been missing out! I cannot begin to say... More

I have family in Forest, and was in town for a wedding nearby. What a treat to be hosted by Glen and Joy in their beautiful, spotless, spacious (yet charming) B&B. The rooms were very large, bathrooms and rooms were incredibly clean. Inviting books on the shelves, very comfortable beds, and complementary bottled water, coffee, and tea made everything that...
