We stay here whenever life gets too crazy and we need a getaway that is close by. Fighting traffic is not our idea of relaxation and this little gem is perfect. It is owned and staffed by the nicest people you could ever meet and they genuinely want to make their guests happy.
We always stay in the McCarthy House as it is a lovely cabin, built by the owner, that has two private housekeeping units with their own hot tub, overlooking a lake. It is at the end of a lane and feels very private and secluded. In the summer the owners share the lake with some of Stratford's famous swans and have paddle boats and canoes to lend to their guests. In the winter a flock of Canada geese make the lake their home and provide entertainment while you relax in the hot tub. On the right nights, the sky has a multitude of stars and when the train blows it's whistle when it goes by the coyotes join in. They have the most delicious homemade muffins and breakfast is included in the price of the room.
We stay here for my birthday every November; softens the blow.
I almost hate to give such a good review as it may reduce my chances of booking a room but this place should be a part of the whole Stratford experience.
