Expect a warm greeting and a pleasant stay in this B & B just blocks from downtown Stratford and all of the Festival Theaters. And what a breakfast you will have, with fresh baked pastries and savories fresh out of Mary Lou's kitchen! If you're lucky, later in the day Mary Lou will bake up some of her homemade ginger...

We sincerely wish we could have stayed longer, as our one-night visit at The Caversham House was wonderful. Mary Lou is a wonderful hostess -- warm, friendly, and quite knowledgeable about the wonderful town of Stratford. She kindly provided us with maps, directions and recommendations. Conveniently located on a pretty and quiet tree-lined street, the house is lovely -- from... More

Complementing a perfect visit to Stratford was staying at The Caversham House. It was comfortable, clean, conveniently located with congenial hosts and palate pleasing healthy cuisine. Thank you Mary Lou and John - it was our pleasure being with you.

Our stay at Caversham House was wonderful. Mary Lou & John were terrific hosts -very friendly, and very knowledgeable about Stratford and the festival. The house is lovely and the Henley room was beautiful. It is large & tastefully furnished. It is bright & airy, with windows on three sides and a small balcony. John's breakfasts were fantastic!

We thoroughly enjoyed a night at Caversham House last week on our return trip from Toronto to Chicago. We stopped in Stratford to attend a matinee theater performance, and hosts Mary Lou and John were very flexible in adjusting our check-in time until after the show. Our hosts were very helpful without hovering, and they made us feel welcome. They... More

My husband and I stayed at Caversham House in the second week of July. We had to arrive early, but the hosts were friendly and accommodating and allowed us to put our things in our room and change for lunch and afternoon theatre even though it was earlier than check-in time. Our room (the Henley) was not large, but it... More

We recently vacationed in Stratford at the charming Caversham House and were very pleased with our accommodations. The home is both welcoming and tastefully decorated with a large living room, a comfortable dining room and a front porch where we relaxed with the resident dog, Baden. The delicious and plentiful breakfasts, with homegrown herbs and elegant place settings, were a... More

We just finished our third week-long stay at Caversham House. We have never been disappointed. John & Mary Lou run their beautiful B&B with attention to details and the comfort of their guests. The rooms are immaculate with en suite baths and comfortable beds. Together they prepare and serve breakfast, including many fresh ingredients from their own gardens. Each morning... More

This B & B is beautifully decorated, and hosted by the very friendly Mary Lou and John. It was very comfortable; delicious breakfast; impeccably clean bathroom and bedroom. Lovely all round. Would definitely return next year for another visit. Susan L.
