We decided last minute to book for the next night and because it was after the end of the Stratford season, we were lucky to get a terrific suite at a very fair price. Delicious breakfast included and all the comforts of home. Mary Lou and John were very welcoming, pointing out a small refrigerator well-stocked with juices, water etc... More

Our stay at The Caversham House B & B was truly memorable. The room was immaculate and the mattress was extremely comfortable with wonderful support. John and Mary Lou opened up their entire house to us and we felt comfortable in having a glass of wine in their living room in the evening. The location is close to downtown Stratford... More

My sister and I spent a delightful evening and morning at the warm and welcoming Caversham House. Mary Lou and John are very interesting innkeepers. Ask John about his experience as a figure skating judge in the KW area. Mary Lou has a passion for history and will engage in a lively discussion. The property and the rooms are well... More

Mary Lou and John are wonderful! To share their wonderful home with "friends," is beyond generous. The porch, the garden, the impeccably furnished rooms and ensuites, the living and dining rooms are , "home away from home." However, the generous gourmet breakfasts are divine. However, John and Mary Lou are the true "gems" of Caversham House.

My husband and I can't say enough great things about Caversham and our hosts. We have nothing but praise for Mary Lou and John about our one night stay at their B&B. Our room was immaculate. Breakfast was delicious - especially John's granola. Delightful hosts. Our arrival was so welcoming, we felt like we were coming home. The B&B is... More

This was our first B&B experience and our first visit to Stratford. Mary Lou was helpful and friendly from the beginning and at our request made some great restaurant suggestions and offered additional help before we even arrived to Stratford. When we first met her, she was quick to make sure that we had our bearings and any maps, directions... More

I have been staying here for at least six years and John and Marylou never fail to amaze me. The B&B is located with within easy walking distance of all of the theatre venues and the wonderful downtown shopping/resturant district. The breakfasts at the B&B are a joy, as is the conversation around the table

This was our first time staying at The Caversham House and it won't be our last! Amazing hosts Mary Lou and John made us feel at home with their friendly welcome! John's breakfast of homemade granola, pastries and pecan waffles was delicious. Location was perfect to Stratford theatres. Room was clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend The Caversham House... More

In 5 days of eating the most magnificent breakfasts, I have enjoyed the best local fruits and meats as well as amazing granola and different baked goods each day. My last breakfast included fresh strawberries and blueberries, creme fraiche, home made granola, freshly baked Irish Soda Bread, corned beef hash with perfectly fried eggs and a berry crumb coffee cake....
