We have been staying at Avery House for a number of years and once again John and Amanda have exceeded our expectations. Attention to detail, warm and welcoming ambiance, unbelievably delicious breakfasts, sharing theatre stories and restaurant reviews over the breakfast table make this the place to stay for fans of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. When we reluctantly left this... More

J&P, Was great to see you both again for your annual visit! You both are lovely guests, and the table is always full of laughter and lively discussion when you join us. Thanks for the nice comments on the breakfasts - they don't call Stratford/Perth County the "Pork Capital" for no reason! We'll be sure that those yummy sausages are... More

Avery House is my husband's and my favourite B&B in Stratford. Truth be told, it is the only Stratford B&B we've stayed in, but why mess with perfection. We have stayed in B&Bs in other locations so we do have points of comparison. Our experience at Avery House has been exceptional every visit. That's why we keep coming back. John... More

My husband and I have been staying at the Avery House B&B for a number of years when it was owned by Judy and Susan and we loved it. This year we weren't able to get the rooms we wanted for ourselves and for friends that were bringing with us. John and Amanda suggested we book at their new Inn... More

Hi, MPRT! First, thanks so much to you and your friends for visiting us here at Avery's Inn Next Door.

It is definitely a different experience staying at the Inn - we are happy with... More

This is at least the 10th time we've stayed at Avery House (it could be more) and we had a terrific time. The house is gorgeous, the breakfasts are superb, and the hosts could not be more accommodating. Everything is designed for the guests' comfort, and the atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. We always feel like we are "coming... More

My partner and I have stayed at B&Bs in Stratford before and I must admit, I'm not the most comfortable with this type of accommodation, but we both enjoyed our brief stay. The owners are two of the most genuinely friendly people you'll meet. Amanda was very engaging and put me at ease. Breakfast with the other guests was great,... More

We had another great stay at the Avery House in Stratford, Ontario. There were 8 in our group and we all were happy with our rooms. After our last play we gathered on the back porch behind the Coco Beach suite which one couple was occupying. John and Amanda made sure we had plenty of glasses for the wine we... More

It's year two for John and Amanda, and they're doing so much with Avery House. The breakfasts just keep getting better and better; this year the home smoked bacon was out of this world. They're such pleasant hosts, with tips and insights into the plays, the restaurants, and the Festival company goings on. The bedrooms are comfortable, and everything is... More
