We just returned from our visit to the D&K Shady Nook and will return. Our room was well appointed and the service here from Doug and Kathy was superb. In close proximity to the theatres and to downtown. A great breakfast, friendly owners, lovely grounds and interior made our stay the best!

Room Tip: Our first floor room with en suite was convenient for coming and going

We recenlty stayed at the Shady Nook. The rooms and clean and nicely furnished. The location is on a quiet street in Stratford. A short walk to the Tom Patterson or Festival Theatre and restaurants. Once you stay here you will return. The owners are warm and welcoming and ensure that your stay is enjoyable. In a very short time it will feel like home.

Room Tip: The rooms have beautiful handmade quilts on the beds.

Every Aug. I travel to Stratford to attend the Festival. We stay a week so we can take in all the plays and the bonus is our reunion with Doug and Kathy. Very accomodating and dependable.

Since our 1st stay, years ago now, D&K has won our loyalty with its unswerving friendliness, warmth and comfort! Each year we find ourselves returning more often and staying longer. From the well-furnished comfy rooms, to the large living room, and the bright and airy dining room, our hosts have created a very inviting place to stay. Oh, and the breakfasts are sumptuous with variety for all tastes and dietary needs. In good weather the yard and pool are to be enjoyed and relaxed in too. Its a short walk to the theatresand restaurants, but just nicely away from the busy main areas. Its our place 'of choice' whenever we're nearby, both as a couple and when with great friends who we want to enjoy time with.
