Beautiful quiet spot

The hosts of Enchanted Forest are as down to earth as it comes. What a splendid relaxing experience. ArtandArms made us feel as if we were old friends. Great conversation, and they were most welcoming. One could not ask for better hosts. We enjoyed the tour of their property and the unique buildings. Loved the gardens. Bella cat was a favorite and I couldn't keep my eyes off Igor-LOL. They are very pet friendly and both our dog and cat had a blast.
We made new friends and will definitely be back in the future.
Thank you for the great hospitality!

A Wonderful Stay

I stayed two nights at Enchanted Forest and I am so glad I did. The hosts were so gracious and kind to me. From inviting me to their Christmas get together with friends and family to the tour of the property- they are really great people. The communication was very good and she even met me at a nearby gas station and guided me to the property. The morning I departed, the host gave me some fruit and medicine because a cold was going around the house and she didn't want me to get sick. I mean, who does that?! I look forward to staying with them on my way back East. My stay was a wonderful experience.

Gypsies, Artist and Bella the Kitty

This IS an Enchanted Forest! Our Hosts were an exceptional treat full of life and experience. We especially enjoyed touring her artist loft studio and her Gypsy wagon. Finally, we savored a lovely breakfast and mimosas the day we left, and wished we could have stayed longer.

Secluded Paradise

We were pleased to be the first guests at Enchanted Forest. Our hosts were very accommodating, treated us to a spectacular laser light show in the trees, and provided a tour of their aptly named property. It was a perfect site for our travels at a convenient location.
