This home was VERY comfortable and easy to stay in. The location was perfect, the food superior and the owners could not have done more. We rate this tops among the many B&Bs we have stayed in. We'll be back there for our next Stratford trip!

With just three rooms, owners John and Mary Lou have made the Caversham an intimate and immaculately clean bed and breakfast, with great food and service to match. They are genuinely interested in their guests without being overpoweringly so. The result is a place that we would want to revisit next time we are in Stratford, especially since it is... More

We were warmly received by our hosts Mary Lou and John and immediately felt right at home. The main floor living room is available to guests and is a bright room with comfy furniture.... More

There are so many places to stay in Stratford - it was hard to select - but we loved loved loved our choice. The Caversham House is a lovely B & B. Our room was exactly what we wanted - king bed, small balcony, clean clean clean, and beautifully appointed. Mary Lou and John are excellent hosts, with excellent taste... More

This is my third visit to Caversham in three years. John and Mary Lou are the consummate hosts while Baden their Welsh Corgi is a real cutie. Their home is warm and welcoming, the rooms nicely decorated with super comfortable beds. Breakfast is a delicious medley of culinary creations which are fresh and expertly presented. The B&B is a short... More

This is truly a top-notch bed and breakfast. If you are looking for warm, charming accommodations with very comfortable rooms and incredible food this is the place. John and Mary Lou could not have been more gracious and really made us feel welcome in their home. They were truly a delight. We would absolutely stay with them again.

Mary Lou and John have the perfect set up. They are extremely welcoming, Along with their loveable dog, I felt like I'd known them for years. The character of The Caversham House is incredibly inviting. We visited Stratford this past weekend, together with our best friends and I picked this place because I loved all the gathering spots to relax.... More

Lovely home, a delightful couple who make you feel at home, super breakfast, and a comfortable, north-facing verandah on which to relax between attending Festival performances, and/or touring the historic little city and southwestern Ontario countryside. It strikes me that this would be the perfect spot at which to settle for a few nights while exploring Alice Munro country. Once... More

We just completed our first stay at the Caversham House. Mary Lou and John, the hosts, were as welcoming as could be. Our room was lovely, with small treats available for late-night hunger attacks. Breakfast at 8:30 was delicious and abundant. Our fellow guests were delightful. The bed and breakfast is located in a convenient location, close to the theatres... More
