We were delighted to spend four nights at the Caversham House B&B in Stratford. Ideally located on the historic Cobourg Street, we were but a short walk away from all three theatres and the Avon River. We parked the car and left it there for the duration of our stay. Our hosts Marilou and John prepared scrumptious breakfasts and afternoon... More

Mary Lou and John were exceptional hosts -- they were very welcoming and were very knowledgeable about Stratford theaters, restaurants and the local area. The rooms (including the bathrooms) were well-appointed, very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding and included home made baking and granola, yogurt, (and delicious omelettes one day and waffles the next).... More

We were the very first guests at the Caversham House for 2015, staying this past weekend. As prearranged, we let ourselves in on Saturday as Mary Lou and John were out at the time of our arrival. All instructions were provided in full to ensure a seamless entry on our own days before arriving. LOCATION: The location could not have... More

We always enjoy arriving at the Caversham House. John and Mary Lou make you feel as if they care about you all year round, not just the days you are with them. This connection is one more reason we love to return to Stratford year after year:)

Perfect in every way. Mary Lou has thought of everything .....and then some. The location is ideal, walking distance to all 3 theaters as well as downtown. We will definitely return next year. the house was immaculate.

Mary Lou and John are the consulate hosts. I can't say enough about their welcoming personalities and the fabulous breakfasts that they present. Delicious and so nicely presented. The rooms are immaculate and nicely decorated. As second time guests we can't wait to return in 2015.

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.
