This was our first stay ever at a B&B, so we were not sure what to expect, What a treat! Hosts treat you like old friends, the room was comfortable and lovely, the breakfast was delicious!! The walk to town for dinner and a play was short. Hosts are very informative about the area. Would stay there again.

We stayed in this memorable B&B for three nights - seeing two plays in the Festival Theatre and walking to and from the theatre from the B&B. It takes about 20-25 minutes each way, and that is the most distant theatre. The best restaurants are about 7-10 minutes away by foot. Totally convenient. The B&B is on Erie Road, which... More

Sitting in the front room listening to Mike's encyclopedic collection of jazz records, enjoying Helene's beautiful Victorian garden, heading off to bed with a warm cup of tea and freshly baked cookies, waking to the smells of our gourmet breakfasts -- we had an absolutely terrific time at the Blue Spruce! Our every need was anticipated and fully met. The... More

There were five if us in our group, and we all felt genuinely welcomed and catered to. Micheal is a professional chef, and the breakfasts were spectacular. Both Helen and Michael were warm and friendly. It was visiting old friends! The beds were very comfortable and the garden was a lovely retreat. The only drawback was that the house fronts... More

My mother-in-law and I stayed here the end of July (2014) for our annual trip to the Stratford Festival. The B&B is very nice with beautiful gardens and ample parking for guests. We stayed in the music room and loved it. The room had plenty of space, very comfortable beds, was well equipped and had it's own private rooftop deck.... More

This was our first experience at a bed and breakfast, and we have a lovely time! Our hosts, Helene and Michael, were very welcoming and helpful. They recommended some great places for us to eat, they arranged a taxi to pick us up from our evening show at the Festival Theatre, and they were gracious and always accommodating. The rooms... More

We had an excellent stay at this fabulous B&B. The quality of the rooms, the service and the breakfasts were all outstanding. Helene and Michael were great hosts. We enjoyed our conversations with them and very much appreciated their recommendations regarding restaurants and other local information. When next in Stratford, we would definitely reserve at this B&B again. Claire and... More

This is a lovely place. The rooms are comfortable, well furnished, very clean and extremely interesting. We stayed in the Music Room and my daughters stayed in the Writers Room, and Michael pointed out all the items autographed by many of our favorite performers. It was an easy walk from the B&B to the downtown theaters and restaurants. Breakfast was... More

We had so many laughs with our hosts and other guests at our Sunday morning breakfast, it could have been another theatre production--definitely a comedy! The place is very nice with a plethora of celebrity signed posters or magazine covers. Clean, well appointed, nice garden. Not walking distance for us (older couple) to the the theaters. But the real attraction... More

Thank you so much for your delightful review! We, too, very much enjoy the breakfast table discussions, although I am not sure the Stratford Festival will want to add them to the playbill. It was a lot of fun for us to have you as our guests and we would love to host you again. Dexter and Dixie say, "Hi!" More

We stayed in Peacock room which did not have an en suite bath. The bathroom was a short walk down the hall and actually had a signed poster of the Grateful Dead on the wall. The bathroom also had a delightful old fashioned tub for soaking and a shower. I am a Diet Coke drinker and once Helene knew, I... More
