We visited Caversham House in May. Had a terrific experience, starting with Mary Lou's helpful advice when we were booking. A recommendation for dog boarding nearby worked perfectly and helped make our trip logistics easier. John and Mary Lou have created a very welcoming environment, with lots of extras (guest fridge upstairs, snacks, water, bedtime treat). Location is perfect for... More

Mary Lou and John are great hosts. Their property is very comfortable and the breakfasts are splendid. Mary Lou helped with dining arrangements and made excellent recommendations. We would rate their B& B the best in Stratford.

We spent two nights with our wonderful hosts Mary Lou and John. They are warm, inviting people who make you feel very much at home. They also serve a very good breakfast and are very knowledgeable about the area. The room we stayed in was small, but sufficient. The location to town and theaters was very convenient. We would definitely... More

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...
