My wife and I have just returned from our seventh year of staying with Doug and Holly during our annual visit to Stratford. And we may be taking it a little for granted. It's always a generous and tasty breakfast when Holly's in the kitchen. The unassuming smile is always on Doug's face when he helps you out, either with... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to be able to book with Doug and Holly, despite it being a bit of a last minute trip for us. It was our first visit to Stratford, and we couldn't have been happier with the service at this B & B. Doug and Holly really seem to take pride in what they... More

Breaking bread B&B was a wonderful experience. It was clean and comfortable and in a convenient location close to all the downtown activities and the theatres. The breakfasts were delightful and nutritious. Many thanks to our warm and welcoming hosts. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This was our first trip to Stratford and we enjoyed our experience greatly in large part to our stay at Breaking Bread. Holly, Doug and Beckett (ruff) are gracious hosts and extremely accommodating. We enjoyed our conversations with them and guests. It was just the right amount of interaction while allowing us to do our own thing. We found the... More

We recently stayed at the Breaking Bread B & B and had a wonderful time. Holly and Doug are very friendly and accommodating. The B & B is spotlessly clean and your hosts really pay personal attention to your needs. Breakfast is delicious and changes each morning. The atmosphere is quaint and inviting. We highly recommend Breaking Bread B &... More

Holly and Doug are wonderful hosts and made my daughter and myself immediately feel welcome. Despite our food allergies of gluten and lactose, which made our breakfasts a challenge, our breakfasts were delicious. The Muskoka Room was small but comfortable and the B and B is a convenient short walk to town. We have stayed in other accommodations in Stratford... More

A few years ago we discovered a gem of a B & B in Holly & Doug's Breaking Bread B & B Stratford, and we have not looked back since. Needless to say that the location, accommodation and breakfast were excellent, but it was the unparalleled hospitality and stimulating conversation about the plays and actors that really attracted us. We... More

Year after year we make Breaking Bread our "base of operations" when we come to Stratford and this year was no exception. Holly and Doug Barkman have won our loyalty and friendship through their gracious hosting, attention to our needs, immaculate and comfortable accommodations, charming furnishings, delicious breakfast fare and certainly not least of all their convenient location within a...

Each time we return to Breaking Bread, we feel like we're visiting good friends, Holly and Doug. The rooms are comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Holly and Doug are quick to help us figure things out when we have questions. Breakfast is always so nice. The only reason not to recommend them is the fear that they won't have room... More
