Thanks to Doug and Kathy White for making our trip to Stratford last October so wonderful. We used Trip Advisor to plan this trip, and as usual, the information we received ahead of time was spot on. If you are seeking a hospitable place to relax as you enjoy what this quaint city has to offer, you cannot do better... More

We stayed at the D & K Shady Nook on a trip to the Stratford Festival during the weekend of October 11 and 12. We chose this location, as it was within walking distance to the theatres. We had notified D & K that we wanted to use their bikes, so that when we arrived, Doug had the bicycles ready... More

I've already written a glowing review but I forgot to mention the incredible hospitality they extended to my group that included Dorothy T & Suzann D. When we left at 5:45 AM, they were there with coffee & muffins. I understand this is not always available but for the long time return customers, they do go the extra miles. And,... More

Having stayed here previously, so we returned and enjoyed our stay. Good location as we enjoy walking and can do so to all Stratford Play houses. The White's are friendly, as is their cutie dog, Sadie. Clean, quiet, and surrounded by very pretty flower beds. Breakfast is always tasty and plentiful. No reason not to return!

Our three night stay at D & K Shady Nook was all one could ask for. We were warmly welcomed by Kathy and Doug...and Sadie, their perky and well-behaved dog. Shady Nook is conveniently located, within a 5 minute car ride, or perhaps a pleasant 20 minute walk, of downtown Stratford. Our room was immaculate, quiet and comfortable, with good... More
