“Cavershame House Superstar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

My spouse and I celebrated our 40th Anniversary in Stratford Ontario. We enjoyed 3 fabulous plays. They were Camelot, 12th Night and Jesus Christ Superstar. We went for the plays but the real Superstar of the trip was the avers am House B&B.

Let's start with the hosts Mary Lou and John. They are the reason we keep returning to B&B's. Very helpful to us rookies who have never visited this region.

They recommended Alexa's.Cafe. It was couple of miles out of town but they said this restaurant was wonderful and very reasonably priced. They were correct on both accounts.

We slept in the Hendley Suite. Perfect. Comfortable and very quit.

Of course we should mention location, location, location. The house is perfectly located between the Avon Theatre and the Festival Theatre. An easy 10 minute walk to either one. The Avon Theatre is downtown so plenty of great restaurants and shops are very close. The house is located on a very quite street.

Last but not least the breakfast. One of the best we have had at a B&B and we have stayed at quite a few. Waffles were so good I thought I was back in Belgium.

We highly recommend this B&B and we will return. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: The Hendley Suite has a small balcony.

This was our 2nd visit at Caversham House, and we were welcomed like old friends. John and Mary Lou could not do more for their guests - beautiful rooms with everything you could possibly need and the best breakfasts. Don't miss John's scones!

Quick trip to Stratford and stayed at Caversham for the 2nd time. Pretty house with all the amenities and within walking distance to the theaters and shops.

Breakfast is plentiful, fresh and tasty and often locally sourced. John and Mary Lou anticipate your every need - thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Pleasant, clean and comfortable home. . Thoughtfully prepared, tastefully good food. Warm, generous hosts. Perfect location for walking to the theatres and downtown. The Henley Suite is sun-filled and relaxing.

Stayed here in October for a girls' getaway weekend. Stayed in the Henley Suite. This B&B is set in an ideal location for walking the small city of Stratford, or for catching a play. The proprietors are very welcoming, easy going and full of tips of where to go and what to see. The decor in the house is fresh and comfortable with a nice feeling of luxury. The breakfast delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. We will be back.

John and Mary Lou were FANTASTIC hosts at this little Bed and Breakfast. The room (The Sheridan) was beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious! John made a delectable breakfast using locally grown produce. They provided all the information we could have asked for about Stratford, ON and were willing to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. We really enjoyed our stay and if we are ever back in Stratford for another festival, we will be sure to stay with John and Mary Lou at the Caversham House!
