We arrived at the Jennie Forbes B&B around 4:00 p.m. and after being greeted by the owner, were offered drinks, refreshments and wonderful conversation. Then we went off to the restaurant the owner had recommended and for which she had secured us reservations. The meal there was first-class. The next morning we arose to find a marvelous breakfast awaiting us--soft-boiled... More

My girl friend and I were there in mid September. Our first impression from the street was that is was a tiny place, but upon entering discovered a large, well furnished and very comfortable place to stay. Our host Susan demonstrated an encyclopedic knowledge of the town, stores, activities, and of course, the plays. She even offered to make our... More

My third visit, this time with friends for a 'girls' weekend away'. Fabulous as always. Sue is always so helpful with restaurant recommendations, places to see, things to do - this trip she even escorted us to the Stratford Farmers Market. The rooms are all lovely, hard to choose a favourite, although the Tuscany suite usually wins out because of... More

For the past two years we have stayed here because it is one of the very few places that have a triple--three twins---so that we can have a "sisters outing." She has a large upper room and bath that can accommodate us all--and we feel like we can have our grown-up sleep-over together rather than go off to our own... More

Although the Jennie Forbes looks from the outside like a snug, small cottage, its downstairs rooms are actually surprisingly large, elegant, and high-ceiling-ed. Our room across from the living room, the Queen, was, like the common rooms, beautifully furnished and comfortable. It had a nice ensuite bath with big terrycloth towels and fine toiletries. We slept very well in the... More

This was our first time in Stratford, and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night, 4 day stay in the french queen room. The home is located less than 5 minute walk from the Avon theatre and downtown. Susan was a great host. She was a wealth of information and offered valuable information based on our interests, she reserved restaurants for... More

This was our first time staying in a B&B in Stratford and we can't wait to return back! Susan is a welcoming hostess. The location was great because we were only a few blocks from downtown. We walked everywhere! We enjoyed the breakfasts and we never left the house hungry in the morning. The home is very clean and furnished... More

We've stayed here every year since the Allens bought the cottage. Rooms are comfortable, breakfasts are fantastic, elegant furnishings, an inviting living room for guests that encourages conversation, hosts are welcoming, informative and most accommodating.

My husband and I took our daughter and her friend to Stratford for one night. The girls are both 16. The girls had a room with a queen and single bed upstairs and we had the Queen room on the main floor. They ended up sharing the bed upstairs and loved it. They were very happy. We had a great...

The location is ideal, the rooms are ground level (VERY important advantage for seniors), the owners are helpful, and great conversationalists, the beds are superior, every attention to detail has been taken, and no expense has been spared in the quality breakfast: what could be better?
