The Forbes House is the place where Caroline Forbes and her mother Elizabeth Forbes formerly resided. It is shown that Sheriff Forbes is rarely at home, particularly at night due to her professional responsibilities. Mostly, Caroline's bedroom has been shown. Caroline and Damon have sex for the first time in her bedroom and she was bitten by him the next morning. During Stefan's birthday party at the Mystic Grill, both Bonnie and Damon lashed out at Caroline and she got too drunk to cope. Caroline's mother asked Matt to take Caroline home while she tried to capture Lexi. When they get to Caroline's house Matt puts Caroline in her bed, she asks him to stay since she does not want to be alone. After spending that night spooning in bed together, Matt escaped the next morning through her bedroom window. Matt later came back and spent the night with Caroline, starting their romantic relationship.
After Caroline becomes a vampire, she spends her time between sunrise and sunset in her house. She even avoids her boyfriend Matt when he comes knocking at her front door. Eventually Stefan persuades Bonnie to come over to Caroline's bedroom and cast a spell on a ring allowing Caroline not to be burned by sunlight.
In My Brother’s Keeper, Stefan moves out of the boarding house because Elena moved in. He is staying for the time being at Caroline's house. In Pictures of You, he lives back at the Salvatore Boarding House.
In Woke Up With a Monster, Elizabeth was released from the hospital. She later drank some of her daughter's blood to heal.
In Stay, Damon brought Elizabeth home.

Alaric hired a nanny too look after the twins while he's working at The Armory.
