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

I've been coming to The Stratford Festival for 2 decades now. When I stay over, this B&B is my place of choice. I was pleasantly pleased with the transition of the new owners, Mollie and David, during the 2015 season. The rooms are comfortable as always, the food is excellent (even a bit better than before) and Mollie and David... More

We had a wonderful time in Stratford, enjoyed the shows and browsed for treasures while antiquing. Mollie and David, our welcoming hosts are continuing the tradition of the past owners Doug and Kathy and are providing a lovely B and B for their guests to enjoy and relax. Comfortable rooms, great breakfast with mouth watering scones, only add to the... More
