I came across this bed and breakfast as I was looking for a place to get away without the long drive. Forrest and Brenda were a true blessing to us, as they opened up their beautiful home and treated us just like family. The location is not far from the city, yet remote enough that it feels like your in the country. The food was great, the conversation at the table, along with sharing their journey made us not want to leave. If you haven't been to this Inn, do your mind, body and spirit a favor, and spend a night (or more) at this bed and breakfast.

Brenda and Forrest are wonderful hosts. We truly enjoyed our visit. The Inn is wonderfully decorated and very clean. The bed is so comfy. Very peaceful and relaxing. The gardens are beautiful (can't wait to see them in the spring). We enjoyed the walk in the woods, the fall colors were beautiful and we even saw a few deer. Enjoyed spending time on the porch swing and rocking chairs. Breakfast was yummy and the baked goods are awesome! Looking forward to our next visit!

This Bed and Breakfast is very nice if you just want a place to stay. If you want to have a romantic getaway, DO NOT choose this as they allow children and NO alcohol. The breakfast was OK but, nothing to ride home about. This is perfect instead of using a hotel room.

The stay was given us as a surprise gift....it was wonderful. Our room was very nice and a bed so comfortable I did not want to get up. Immaculate housekeeping and all our needs already taken care of. The property was such a treat...beautiful landscape and gardens. We really appreciated the prayer prior to breakfast. The innkeepers are lovely folks and certainly professionals at hosting!

I have stayed at many B&Bs, but Welcome Home Inn exceeded my expectations. Forrest & Brenda are remarkable people. Their inn is absolutely beautiful. I went to dinner and decided to carry it out, since I had a beautiful home to take it back to.
