This was our first visit back to Stratford after an 11 year absence. During the 13 years when my wife and I spent time in Stratford, we experienced many different B & B's and the Shady Nook is right up there at the top. Molly and David are exceptional hosts, their breakfasts are superb, our room was very comfortable and... More

My friend, Mary, and I stayed at this lovely B & B twice this summer, and we've already booked for next year. The location is fantastic, within walking distance of all the theaters. The rooms are comfortable, nicely decorated and each room has its own bathroom. The owners, Mollie and David, are warm and welcoming. The breakfasts are fabulous, and... More

The breakfasts were delicious and the inn was in walking distance of downtown shops and theatres. Mollie was very helpful, lovely, and welcoming. We will definitely come again! Thanks for a... More

I have stayed at quite a few B&Bs around the world, and this is one of the best anywhere. The Shady Nook features comfortable rooms with a private, en suite bathroom. They are tastefully decorated, welcoming, and appealing. The rooms are, of course, very clean - spotless might be a better word. The breakfast is excellent! It's not just tasty... More

This was our 20th. stay @ Shady Nook and the first with Molly & David as the new owners. We are happy to report the transition has been smooth and we enjoyed our stay, and Stratford, very much. Good location, nice rooms, and great breakfasts. We are already booked for 2016.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Mollie and David's B and B. The location is perfect .... Just a 5 minute walk to the Main Street in Stratford. The breakfast was wonderful. David and Mollie are wonderful hosts. The room was very clean and comfortable . We highly recommend this B and B.

Mollie Petryna and David Humphreys provided delightful and restorative hospitality for our stay in Stratford. They were welcoming and accommodating from the moment we arrived, and went beyond to assist us with difficulties during our stay. Our room on the first floor was clean, bright and comfortable. Nice included bathroom featured shower door that seals snugly and a useful nightlight.... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this B&B. We have stayed at many B&B's over the years at Stratford, Ontario and I can honestly say this was one of the best. Molly and Dave were excellent hosts. They were very friendly and they had excellent knowledge of the local theater, which is of course why we go to Stratford.... More
