My wife and I have been staying at the Caversham House for the past five years. Mary Lou and John have been gracious hosts and have made us feel a part of the family. Our room and bathroom are immaculate. A refrigerator is well stocked and goodies available daily in our room. Our bed is turned down in the evening... More

We have been attending plays in Stratford for many years and have stayed in numerous B&Bs. Fortunately we have been able to stay at Caversham House for the last several years, where we feel at home more than any other place that we have stayed. The location is fine, the rooms are comfortable with good beds & parking is adequate.... More

B&Bs have become the preferred lodging for us over the past decade. We've stayed at Caversham House for 3 years now and for us it is one of a very select group "must stays" across Canada. It quite simply feels like home. John and Mary Lou are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to help with a question... More

We have been fortunate to stay at The Caversham House for 4 years. From the moment we met Mary Lou, John, and their dog, Baden, we have felt "at home." We have stayed in two of their immaculate and comfortable rooms. We have enjoyed scrumptious breakfasts with fresh bakery items baked by John and main courses prepared with perfect presentation...

John and Mary Lou provide the best rooming experience we have ever had. We have spent a week with them each summer for the past four years. (We have already booked our room for 2016.) Breakfast is a gourmet feast using fresh, local ingredients.The rooms have en suite baths. The entire home is spotless and well-maintained. John and Mary Lou... More

I've been staying at Caversham House B & B for 8 years, ever since Mary Lou and John took over. It's like a home away from home for me when I attend the Stratford Festival every year. I park my car in the driveway and I can walk to each of the theatres, as well as all the restaurants. The... More

This year we decided to try a B&B in Stratford instead of driving each day from a nearby city as we've done in the past and what a wonderful experience we had. After a long drive, we were greeted with a cup of iced tea and homemade cookies. Mary Lou and John always made sure our stay was as comfortable... More

My wife and I have been visiting Stratford since 2000. For the last 8 years we have stayed exclusively at Caversham House. It has become our second home. John and Mary Lou are excellent hosts and Baden (the corgi) is a wonderful greeter. The location is ideal, all of the theatres and restaurants are within easy walking distance. The breakfasts...

Overview: Great location, elegant and delicious breakfasts, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable hosts. My wife and I have been traveling to Stratford every year since 2003 for the Shakespeare Festival, usually staying three nights per visit. We stayed at the Caversham House in 2014 and 2015, and it's our favorite of all the Stratford hotels and B&B's where we've stayed. Its... More

Wonderful location. Wonderful hosts. Fantastic breakfasts. It was an absolute joy to be able to park the car for the weekend and be sorry centrally located to all the theatres, restaurants etc. It really made for a relaxed weekend not to have to be getting in and out of your car. John and Mary Lou (and Baden) made you feel... More
