As others' pictures and reviews tell the story, the main reason to stay is the train theme. I stayed in the guest suite in the basement of the main house, but had a tour of the caboose itself and would have definitely booked it if traveling with a partner, especially with kids. It's very cool!
Robert's love for his collection is contagious and the set-up in the garden, with trains, tunnels, and a pond filled with lilly pads, is great. Joan is charming, seeming to get a kick out of his hobbies, even as she sometimes pokes a little fun his way. She's also helpful with advice on restaurants and local events in Stratford.
