Comfortable and cozy. Originally built as a writer's retreat, the guest cottage is 264 sq ft with partial kitchen, bath with shower, and bedroom. Next to 47 acre Forrest Nature Preserve: 2+miles walking trails. Abundant wildlife. Good fishin'; canoe and kayak access. Beautiful views.

Covered porches, deck; vegetable, herb, and flower gardens. Hammock under the trees in nice weather (after all, this is Ohio). Breakfast is served in the main house next door to the cottage. Common areas in the main house include living room (satellite 42 inch TV, DVD, fireplace), dining room.

We live on the property and are available during our guest's stay. Ask us, we know the best places, and the short cuts to get there!

We are surrounded by farmland and adjacent to a beautiful nature preserve. Wild life is abundant. We often see eagles flying the creek behind our home. Stars can be seen on cloudness nights. Fire flies sparkle the night and birds sing in the morning as if the very dawn depends on them. Peaceful country.

There is ample parking alongside the cottage.
Seneca County Area Transportation provides public transit for a small fee and there is taxi service in our area.

Open May through November.

Diane and Joe were remarkable hosts - so warm and friendly and welcoming. I've stayed at number of B 'n Bs, and ForrestView stood out as #1 in its attention to detail. It sounds silly, but to me it's really important to have the basics like enough hooks to hang towels on, enough electrical outlets, etc. And this one did! Also, welcoming snacks, a fantastic breakfast with great conversation and a spectacular view. The bed was comfortable. I slept wonderfully. What a treat!

The hosts were incredibly welcoming. It is a very lovely cottage in a great location. They gave me a snack upon arrival. Breakfast was incredible. Bacon, eggs, pancakes, pastries, fruit. I chatted with Diane for quite awhile. Very friendly !

I stayed with Diane and Joe for four nights on a writing retreat to finish my dissertation. Diane and Joe were incredibly warm and welcoming, and also very supportive of my need to focus on work during my visit (i.e. that I couldn't socialize too much). The space was calm, clean, and well stocked - they have amenities available in the bathroom, fruit and water in the fridge, and they made sure that I had all the snacks I could ever need while writing. :) It was a great pleasure to share breakfast with Diane and Joe each morning, and to get to know them during my stay. We ate locally grown produce, fresh eggs right from their own chickens, homemade waffles and local syrup - and Joe will take requests for breakfast. I will definitely be recommending their place to friends! The property is right on the edge of a nature preserve and there are numerous chairs around the property for enjoying the view and the atmosphere. I sat outside in a rocking chair on the front porch and wrote and read in a calming peace. Hummingbirds keep you company. The stars at night were beautifully clear. This is a great place to clear your mind and recharge. (Tiffin is just 10 min away if you need anything more.) I wish I had stayed a whole week. Please note that cell service is limited out here, and that the internet can be slow, though Diane and Joe had the internet provider increase the speed during my visit. This worked great for me since I needed to focus on writing anyway, but just something to be aware of depending on your needs.

We're so glad you set aside time for breakfasts: thoroughly enjoyed the conversations, loved your sense of humor. You are now officially "First Writer in Residence" , not only for being the first retreat writer we've hosted, but what a beautifully written review! Thank you! Would love the fun of saying, "Welcome, Dr. Casey", so we hope you'll come again. Thank you for being such a thoughtful, considerate guest.

Diane and Joe are awesome hosts. This is an actual bed and breakfast and the first one I’ve been to through airbnb. We had a wonderful experience. Communicating with them was a pleasure right from the start. Diane emailed me a lot of suggestions and tips about places to visit on the way and while we were there and they were very prompt in replying to my messages. Check-in was easy and flexible. It is a cute little guesthouse perfect for two and has all the amenities you might need, the bathroom and kitchen are well stocked. They have nice locally made snacks, fruit, cheese, chocolate, soda, water etc. If you forget your toiletries, the bathroom has almost everything that you may have at home. No smoking or drinking in the property due to insurance reasons, but that’s sometimes a good thing. They serve really good breakfast in the morning, with some homegrown ingredients and really good bacon. They took all our preferences into account for the breakfast. You also have access the living room and kitchen area in the main house till 11pm. Like someone else mentioned, it is really like visiting friends or family. We had a lot of wonderful conversations with them when we checked in and over breakfast. The area is really beautiful. We took a walk along all the trails around the cottage and it was very pretty and quaint. Pictures don’t do it justice. I could keep writing about how nice our stay was, but I’m going to leave some content for other reviewers. And some things, you just got to go there and experience. I would highly recommend this place and would love to go back there.

WOW! Thank you for the generosity and kindness of your comments! Your stay with us was such fun! It's not often one hears the words "stroopwafel", "torque", and "parapluie" in the same day, let alone in the same conversation. We, too, are hoping our paths cross again!

Beautiful location and convenient t Tiffin and Heidelberg Universities. The couple was very accommodating with great breakfast conversation. House is cozy and quaint yet with heat and water that seemed higher scale.

Super clean and adorable space, the hosts made us feel so welcomed and cared for. Outstanding attention to detail. We felt so relaxed, this place is perfect, unless you want to drink alcohol, that is not allowed, but if you do drink, still consider this place, as it is so peaceful, beautiful, and relaxing, you wont miss drinking. Best breakfast ever! I have never stayed at a real bed and breakfast before, this is real, they served us a perefect breakfast! It was amazing, fresh, and local; they made the blueberry sauce for the pancakes from blueberries they grew and picked. Everything was cooked to perfection, from the eggs, to the bacon. It was very healthy too, fresh juice. My mouth is watering now just thinking about the breakfast. I would go back just for the breakfast. Diane and Joe are so welcoming, the perfect hosts.
