Over the past year, Forest Springs Bed and Breakfast has seen our business grow in a new and welcome direction. Many of our guests have noted to us that our being a member of the green inspection program of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild was a major factor in their decision to stay with us.  Knowing that we extended this care to our choices of local, fresh and organic ingredients for their breakfast certainly didn’t hurt either.

Our favorite moment is when our local organic farmer shows up during breakfast with a basket of freshly picked raspberries, basil and tomatoes.  We are fortunate to live in an area where doing the right thing comes as easily as the winter rain!

We love to escape – and what better place than Forest Springs Bed and Breakfast? This Inn is a haven of hospitality, charm and natural beauty nestled in the forests yet so close to town. We appreciate all you offer your guests, and your environmental commitment. It shows - and makes the stays all that much more meaningful.

The Craftsman B&B did a survey a while back asking if our guests booked because we were green. Many did, but many didn't even notice any changes in service or amenities we offer. Green can be transparent to the guest, but have a great affect on your bottom line. The best thing we have done is rid ourselves of plastic water bottles.
