We are repeat customers of the Forest Motel. We travel with our friends, when going to Stratford. Great people. There is a train that is right buy the property. I think it goes by twice a day. Once at night. But somehow, it just adds to the charm of the place!

A beautiful spot to spend a night and a morning. Small old fashioned rooms with two double beds. Continental breakfast. Canoes, pedal boats, bikes and other outside activities. A little bit like being at camp but fifteen minutes walk from town. Will visit again.

We stayed at the house, and it was just what we needed. It was spacious, new, clean, comfortable. Like having your own apartment. The fireplace in the bedroom, as a heating device, was a perfect touch.

"The McCarthy house with the hot tub is the perfect spot for a couples weekend. "
"We have enjoyed our accommodation in both the Motel section and the B&B. Both have been equally clean and comfortable."
"Envelope provided..A nice touch. We left 10$"
"I believe the King beds are a little harder, we had the doubles...which were a little softer. We slept well. "
"Lower number room like 10 is closer to breakfast nook which may be noisy in the morning."
