“I wanted to make sure and provide an absolutely “paws-itvely” brilliant review of this truly splendid doggie-friendly lovely B&B… As we required being down in London on business but wished to travel with our small toy-poodle. They were ever so accommodating to our request of this and their own golden-doodle Ginger was an ever gracious canine hostess to our older little fur-baby… Our room was wonderfully appointed for optimal comfort and I can honestly say I have never had a more restful sleep, than in even a 5 star hotel room. Fabulously cozy comforters atop the amazing four poster queen bed, that honestly had an incredibly comfortable mattress. Unfortunately I have a notoriously bad back, but had not an ounce of problems sleeping on this bed in the “willow whisper” guest room. On our next trip down to London, I plan to try the “cherry blossom guest room with its queen-sized sleigh bed. Considering the very delicious breakfast we received, with the most reasonable pricing for such accommodation and the genuinely warm hospitality extended to us, by our host and hostess (Mike & Nancy) — I would wholeheartedly recommend this bed and breakfast to any road weary travellers wishing for the truest personal comforts of home… The Innchanted Forest B&B, is blissfully enchanted indeed! Much thanks, Kelly-Grace & Garth Cramer from Toronto.”
